Samples from John Hawkins’ v. funny interview with Ann Coulter:

"Communism is like vegetarianism in that it's actually not very healthy for most people but leftists continue to defend it because it seems like the thing to do."

"Ozzy Osbourne has his bats, and I have that darn 'convert them to Christianity' quote."

"Please buy your children a copy of my book before they are old enough to vote."

I'd enjoy Ann Coulter's articles if she wasn't so far to the left.

I'd enjoy Ann Coulter's articles if she chose interesting topics, developed original, interesting and informed ideas about them and then described what she thought in an attractive writing style.

I'd enjoy Ann Coulter's books if they were for sale in actual bookstores. Plenty Of Noam Chomsky, John Pilger, Michael Moore and Naomi Klein amongst the tuscan travelogues, cats in greece, risotto 101 etc, etc. I might try the Brunswick Library.

Coulter's a bimbo - the Michael Moore of the right. Everything I've read of hers has been deceitful, empty-headed fartgas.

Everything Ann Coulter writes may be fartgas, but at least she looks good doing it.

That's more than I can say about Moore...

I would have guessed that Coulter and Moore are just about as far from the ideal weight for their height as the other.

They're really the bizarro version of each other: fatty and skinny, hysterical left and shrieking right, one grotesquely dishevelled and one tarted up like an embalmed corpse.

Except, to complete the picture, ONE of them oughta have some talent . . .

you're thinking some sort of twins-seperated-at-birth thing here, mork?

Mr. Bingley: this is what I'm thinking: http://www.geocities.com/tvtranscripts/seinfeld/bizarro.htm
. . . . .

Yeah! An' he is a friend, Jerry. He is reliable. He is considerate. He's, like, your exact opposite.

So he's Bizarro Jerry!

[pause] Bizarro Jerry?

Yeah. Like Bizarro Superman. Superman's exact opposite, who lives in the backwards bizarro world. Up is Down. Down is Up. He says "Hello" when he leaves, "Good bye" when he arrives.

[pause] Shouldn't he say "Bad bye"? Isn't that the, opposite of "Good bye"?

No. It's still a good-bye.

Uh. Does he live underwater?


Is he black..

Look. Just, forget it, {already}. All right?

ah, matter/anti-matter

best not to get them in the same room, then

Posted by: Mr. Bingley at June 27, 2003 at 01:04 AM

...and in moore's case we're talking a lot of matter

Posted by: Mr. Bingley at June 27, 2003 at 01:17 AM

I must say I am shocked and appalled by the way everyone here seems to think that insulting people based on their appearance is acceptable behaviour. Moore's too fat, Coulter's too skinny, Moore wears more makeup than a $5 hooker, etc., etc.

You all should be ashamed of yourselves!

Sean E. is funny looking.

Posted by: md at June 27, 2003 at 03:27 AM

You see, that is exactly the kind of infantile comment that reduces a serious debate to a grade three level.

Besides, I'm rubber and you're glue.

Posted by: Sean E at June 27, 2003 at 06:24 AM

John Hawkins is a super star.

Posted by: Moxie at June 27, 2003 at 07:25 PM

Coulter isn't really Moore's exact opposite: Moore is far-left, and irrational. Coulter isn't an irrational far-rightist, however.

She's so far to the extreme right that even Timothy McVeigh (extreme libertarian) or Reverend Phelps (religious nutcase) are a little iffy on where she stands. That, and she's a liar.
