Ann Coulter's just jealous of single mothers because it means they got some and she never has.

Idiocy = Ann Coulter --- all the way to the bank. She's the P.T. Barnum of our time. Now, if only a GOP elephant would sit on her.

As for the rapture issue, I'll feel safe on any bus that Ann isn't on when that day comes. Eternity in her presence would be, by simple definition, pure Hell.

In fact, I'm pretty sure an eighth circle of Hell has been created for the likes of Ann Coulter and Nancy (dis)Grace.

I think everybody on this thread except Steve and Kyle are, for better or for worse, natives (Or close enough, in Brian's case).

Perhaps you could point out some of the posts that are "whining about whining" - because either my reading comprehension skills are off or yours are.

I lived in Miles City from '66 to 2000, Frank. Now explain to me how calling Ann Coulter a brainless, hypocritical, apparently barren(or a virgin because surely Ann wouldn't use any form of birth control)witch, makes me a victim.

Coulter makes the point that 70 or so percent of people in prison are from single parent homes. Can you tell me what percentage of people raised in single family homes are NOT criminals.

Frank (by pure accident, I am sure) brings up an interesting point here. Why do so many native Montanans (and native Miles Citians, in particular) share the misconception that if someone isn't originally from Montana/Miles City, they MUST be from California?

According to your sizable reservoir of knowledge, Frank, is California the only other place in the country?

As far as "whinning" is concerned - your beloved queen harpy has made a career of whining about liberals, as has her fellow beast-chick Michelle Malkin (not to mention Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly). Rewriting Mein Kampf over and over again is what they do. It's ALL they do.

Well, Real Miles City Folk don't drink anything other than Coors Light (or, possibly Busch Light on special occasions) - and the only cheese worth eating comes from Wisconsin, so "cheese and wine" wasn't the connection I was going for.

I'm going to apply the new "Fool Rule" to Frank's insinuation that anyone not born in Miles City is reponsible for causing its decline. Very few things seem more foolish, not to mention unAmerican, than the sentiments he expressed. Beside, I think Miles City is a pretty great place and only a fool would imply otherwise.

As for the anti-liberal statements that frequently get posted on this site, the best refutation was offered many years ago:

.if by a liberal they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people - their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties - someone who believes that we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a liberal, then I'm proud to say that I'm a liberal.
John F. Kennedy
September 14, 1960 speaking before the New York State Liberal Party

There are a few other points to consider (as offered by several websites),to wit:

You might be a LIBERAL if you believe in the following:
A 40 hour work week
A minimum wage
Social Security
Safe food
Safe products
Civil rights for all (workplace and housing especially)
A balanced Federal budget
Regulation of financial markets
Clean air and water
Separation of church and state
Equal application of the law
Corporate responsibility
Strong limitations of government involvement in personal decisions

You can thank LIBERALS in all political parties for the following accomplishments:
Abolition of slavery
A woman's right to vote
Legal alcohol
Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
The G.I. Bill Of Rights
Minimum Wage laws
Overtime pay
Child labor laws
Workers' compensation
Workplace safety
Safe food and water
Environmental protection standards
Rural electrification projects
Unemployment insurance
Securities & Exchange Commission
Medicare/Medicaid
Peace Corps
Student grant and loan programs
Employer paid medical insurance
Employer paid vacations
Employer funded pension plans
Americans With Disabilities Act
de-stimatization of mental health issues
Open public national parks

I'll listen to Liberal-bashing from anyone who can prove that our nation in general has been damaged by the above accomplishments AND that can truthfully state that they individually have not willfully benefited from those same accomplishments.

Criticism from anyone who doesn't meet those criteria is of course welcome - discourse and disagreement over issues is essential to a healthy society. But blindly bigoted criticisms of Liberals only serve to expose the ignorance of those leveling such attacks.

Poor Frank. Probably subscribes to the Wizard of Oz philosophy. I once met a woman who had absolutely no desire to travel outside the Butte city limits. She was the saddest person I've ever met.

Born and raised in Miles City. Moved to another area that isn't even on your map, Frank (upstate New York).

If Heaven is going to be filled with hateful, bitter, divisive, evil people like James Dobson and Ann Coulter, I think I will have to take a pass. I can't believe that will be the case, however.

Besides, the only people who will be called to Heaven during the Rapture will be "those from the twelve Tribes of David" (or of Isreal, in other translations). In other words, you would have to be of Jewish descent, based upon the Bible. Everyone else who claims their religion is "The Path to the Rapture" has chosen to ignore that passage in the Bible, apparently.
(Rev 21:12)

BTW, I'm not Jewish. I'm not planning to slip out during the Rapture either.

This is one of the most confusing statements I have ever read and it has nothing to do with the supposed "idiocy" of Ann Coutler.

I think Ann Coulter is an extremely intelligent and funny person, who is almost as "good-looking" as my wife. It is ironic how liberals turn so quickly to insult and name calling rather than debate issues on an intellectual basis.

A few posts ago I listed some of the traits and accomplishments of Liberals. In a totally unrelated but very fortunate coincidence, a friend of mine recently sent me an email explaining the evolution of Liberals and Conservatives, including the very important role that Conservatives have played throughout history. So, in the interest of fair play and without further ado, I present:

History 101 (Crash course)

For those that don't know about history ... Here is a condensed version:

Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.

The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:

1. Liberals, and
2. Conservatives.

Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed.

Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to B-B-Q at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement.

Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly B-B-Q's and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement

Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. The rest became known as girlie-men. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided.

Over the years conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass.

Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare. Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat.

Conservatives drink domestic beer, mostly Bud. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big-game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, corporate executives, athletes, members of the military, airline pilots and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living.

Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America . They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.

Here ends today's lesson in world history:

It should be noted that a Liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily respond to the above before forwarding it.

A Conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the absolute truth of this history that it will be forwarded immediately to other true believers and to more liberals just to tick them off.

And there you have it. Let your next action reveal your true self.

******

Hope y'all enjoyed that, regardless of your composition. I did....

Richard - Ann Coulter doesn't have an intellectual bone in her body. During the last election cycle, anytime a right winger endorsed Obama, they were labeled elitist intellectuals and were not to be taken seriously. This included the family of your beloved Barry Goldwater.

As for Coulter being good looking...skinny, blond and kind of unhealthy-looking. That's about it.

He also started the ball rolling with an obviously trolling comment: I think Ann Coulter is an extremely intelligent and funny person"

Richard, would you think Al Franken was "extremely intelligent and funny" if he spent a sizable part of his time advocating violence against people that he disagrees with politically? Not making fun of, or ridiculing, but suggesting that they should be shot, or blown up, or erradicated in one manner or another?

Oh, but she's just joking, so we should all chuckle along with her.
