Coultergeist in Orange County After Halloween


Conservative pundit and author Ann Coulter is coming to the Richard Nixon Library for a reading and book signing on November 4 which goes to show you the scariest thing to happen in OC happens after Halloween.  You can order your tickets at this link and a reminder that the speech starts at 7PM.

Coulter has a new book out that bashes Liberals, “Never Trust a Liberal Over the Age of Three, Especially Republicans.”  She’s such a comedian.

Here’s a snippet of her first interview about the book with Newsbusters:

“Like many people I think, like many patriots out there, after the last  presidential election, I just completely withdrew from politics. I don’t even  know what you guys were putting up. You may have withdrawn from politics and  been watching  Gossip Girl and Revenge like I did. I  didn’t listen to political news, and all of my friends were the same way. What  was happening on Fox, MSNBC, talk radio, it would be like asking me what  happened on Mars for the first three or four months after the election.

And then there were big issues: liberals trying to take our guns away, and  amnesty – trying to get the Democrats 30 million new voters. And those two kind  of reeled my back in. But other than that, I was just watching Turner Classic  Movies. I and all of my most hyper-political friends were that way. I think a  lot of conservatives were. We worked really hard on the last election. We had a  good candidate. We weren’t as bratty about it as Democrats were – remember how  Democrats felt when John Kerry lost to an incumbent in 2004? They were all  committing suicide, threatening to move to Canada.

So my idea with this book is it’s a fun book. About 70 percent of it is –  and this is way harder than it sounds – the best of the best of the best of my  last ten years’ of columns, organized into what I think is a rational grouping  with introductions for each one with some points I’ve been meaning to make on  some larger subject areas. It begins with a chapter on what I want Republicans  to concentrate on – and that is winning elections – and disputing some of the  myths about that.

I think whenever something goes wrong, people tend to lunge at easy  solutions, and as you know from reading the book, I am disputing both the claim  it’s the Tea Party’s fault and the claim it’s establishment Republicans’ fault.  A lot of things went wrong. Let’s look at all of them and not make any of these  mistakes again. But the main point is concentrate on winning the way the  Democrats do.”

Now there’s a part of me that would love to go to the Nixon Library to heckle Coulter.  But let’s face it; there are better things to spend money on.

    Dan: Did you come up with “Coultergeist”? That’s actually pretty funny.

    Only proving the old adage that, “a fool and his money are lucky enough to come together in the first place.”

    Who can forget or forgive Ann Coulter for her unrelenting personal attacks on the moral character of John Edwards for exploiting the death of his son. Where did she get off ringing any alarm bells about him as a person…

      Personal failings aside, John Edwards was a champion in the war on poverty. No other political figure from the right or the left did more.

    As far as tactics go on heckling a speaker, maybe you can get the play book from the Irvine 11 and make sure no one is allowed to hear her speak. AND most importantly don’t forget to make fun of her physical appearance while taking the moral ground bashing her as poisoning and lower the national discourse of politics for making jokes and comments about Hillary having cubby ankles.

    Keep believing you’ll win if only you were more conservative Jim. Ann sure does. Just start saying “President Hillary Clinton” over and over to get used to the idea.

    Excuse me for a second, am I being lectured about taking the high moral ground from Jim Bieber who’s traveled the low road so often he has a highway maintenance sign in his name. Hysterical.

    Youre welcome. What happened to the link to the OC weekly on the right side over there? Am I crazy or is it removed?
