Thomas the Rhymer BS: Ann Coulter scrapes bottom (416* d) RE: BS: Ann Coulter scrapes bottom 13 Jun 06


Wow Ebbie... talk about obscure... And the point you are making is... what, exactly?

Mine is this...

If Ann Coulter was standing on a stage in front of the mudcat... strumming a Martin dreadnaught and singing soulfully about being wronged... she would be sought after and coveted by many here. But because she is on the 'other side' of some imaginary duality, the vociferous 'ad hominem' has become a useful weapon for many of you to use against her as a person. This is hypoctitical and substandard.

Hey, the lady isn't going to win any prizes for being cuddly and heart-warming... and that is our loss as well as her's... with her writing. But all you know of her is from her 'day job' as a political writer and provocateur... Stick to the issues, and agree or disagree with her... or lose by default, in a fit of reaction that is beneath all of us.

She proves to us again and again, that we'd rather react than think... and we feel compelled to toe the 'party line' withhout breaking ranks instead of questioning our motives for doing so.

Just like here at mudcat, the lesson is constantly renewed... Don't Feed the Flames.

Hating the world only makes it worse.
