See, kids, this is how it's done.

Little as I like Adam Carolla, there are times when a garden-variety obnoxious (bigoted, too, yes) shock-jerk can come in handy. For instance, here, wherein he deals with a certain ubiquitous Toxic Blob of Ectoplasm in the manner she deserves.

Now if only the rest of the media would follow his example.

It'd be a start.

Love this.

ha ha! seriously, i'd love it if more media outlets just completely ignored her.

Normally, I would say the same, but now she has that slo-motion gruesome train-wreck appeal. Can't look away.

I need to go listen to that again.

Oh, if they want to put her on just to humilate or hang up on her again, I'm all for it. I could listen to that all day

Couldn't have happened to a nicer person.

Excellent clip!

And can we please keep pointing out that she is a plagiarist? Why doesn't this story have more traction?

I have a new friend who was born in Sierra Leone (did I spell it right? I met him online just this week). He had dinner with Ann Coulter a few weeks ago, after meeting her at a political event.

He told her something to the effect of, "If you lived in another country probably you'd be dead by now." And he was serious. There are many countries where people would take her OUT because of the things she's said.

Not that this is a good thing. He was amazed by her giddy lack of concern. She either has no clue about how awful she sounds, or she doesn't care, and/or she's crazy.

He's convinced that she's completely lost her mind. Batshit loony bitch.

Oh, she's completely insane. And yeah she means every word of it. I am constantly amazed by how many people can't or won't seem to see this. "Oh, she's just doing it for effect! Hyperbole! Ha, ha!"

You know what gets me? That there is this tacit acceptance that the presumed desire for attention for its own sake, taken to such an extreme, would ITSELF be "sane."

belledame222 said...

btw: did your friend say whether she actually ate anything?

i am horrible enough that i have contemplated whether a concerted effort to convince her that "gee, Ann, you look like you might've gained a few pounds, there" might just take her over the edge.

Much as I hate to say it, I think that's actually a point in her favor

She has really big hands. Like monster hands.

belledame222 said...

she's just utterly horrifying.

EL said...

Hedonistic, your friend is truly the bomb.

And, strangely, so is Adam Carolla in this clip. Never thought I'd see the day ...

i must say that i don't looove the way he keeps calling her a bitch. but i do love that he won't put up with her shit.

Tuffy said...

>i don't looove the way he keeps calling her a bitch.

It's a tough issue. Some women just seem to compel the term, and she's one of them.

belledame222 said...

Yeah, like I said: he's pretty high on the jerk-o-meter himself.

considering who he's talking to, though:

well. i know the whole debate about not stooping to sexist insults or references to physical appearance.

mostly i agree.

still i gotta say that "why the long face" made me snicker.

and, too, i am looking forward with delicious anticipation to hearing her and her enablers whine about the sexism and the personal insults. go for it, Ann! you know you want to.

it *is* nice to hear someone who refuses to put up with her crap.
