I Agree With Al

Sometimes, Tiggerlane just CAN'T keep her mouth shut about politics. I am forced to share this with you, because it shows a woman with a lot of class, going up against a woman who, IMHO, has very little. Ann Coulter makes a lot of money by being abrasive, hateful, and skinny. Whatever you feel about politics, please watch these clips, and let me know your thoughts:
Just another short tidbit, so you might understand more of what was referenced:

Surely you've heard the famous quote from Ann Coulter as such: "I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate, John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word ‘faggot.'" (You Grey's Anatomy fans will get that reference.)

As for Al Franken, he had a chapter in this book entitled "Ann Coulter; Nutcase," followed by another chapter entitled, "You Know Who I Don't Like? Ann Coulter."

For some reason, this song from the South Park movie is coming to mind, with a few name changes to identify the guilty. (WARNING, don't click if you are easily offended - but then, Coulter is somehow worse than the boys from South Park!)

THANK YOU. I can't stand that woman. I watch (shh) Hardball every day and I had to turn her off because my blood pressure was rising. What a hateful person.

Did you ever hear the sketch on Al Franken's radio show about her? I'll go see if I can dig it up. I'm probably the only one who finds it funny, but whatever. I'm loopy from paint fumes anyway, I can't be responsible for my behavior. ;)

I am so turned off by all of the so-called political discourse that is actually anything but discourse, that I avoid most of the news shows and their ilk. I cannot even bring myself to viewing these news clips.

I read the news online, and I read only those things I want in order to stay informed. I can plead ignorance when it comes to the mud-slinging because I don't hear it, read it, or listen to it.

Sorry - I'm not an ostrich with my head in the sand, but to be honest, everything I need to know about this crap I hear about from my egghead hubby. He follows this stuff, tells me about it, and I follow up with my own reading.

I'm a "traditional conservative", but I'm not a fan of Ann Coulter.

mist1 said...

I am abrasive and hateful and skinny. Why doesn't anyone pay me for this?

Seriously, I can't even dedicate another minute to Ms. Coulter tonight. I've had my fill.

willowtree said...

Boy, she's a real piece of work isn't she!?

Hey thanks a lot for not scaring the crap out of me any more.

Tiggerlane said...

melissa - please dig it up!! I'd love to see it. Glad to know there is someone else out there who sees RIGHT thru this woman.

desert songbird - I know, it can be depressing. It's the same reason I can't watch TV evangelists...it's just too much. But make sure hubby keeps you updated!

kila - Yeah - and Ann Coulter makes traditional conversatives look bad, which is really sad. I just wish she wouldn't be so hateful, you know?

mist1 - Lemme guess, gonna go watch Paris on Larry King Live?

willowtree - Don't you wish you lived here? Hehehehe!

Coulter is a disgusting human being who really needs the high hard one. I will be posting a cookout tip tomorrow that involves her. Cheers Tigger!!

Matt said...

Though many people may agree w/ some of her opinions, she's such a f-ing media whore.

She serves little purpose other than to make money for herself working the lower-eschelons of political debate.

I live for Ann Coulter. Every time I hear somebody like Bill Maher hope for Cheney's assassination or celebrate Falwell's death or accuse George Bush of murdering 3000 people on 9/11, I watch Ann to achieve balance.

The hate comes from BOTH sides.

swamp witch said...

I can't bring myself to watch the clip...don't want to ruin my appetite.
I do, however, have a question for you:
How do you post the YouTube clips on your blog? I can't find where it supports Typepad anywhere.
If you have time, please e-mail me with instructions. Thanks !

Lizard Princess said...

Unfortunatly, I am having a difficult time running you tube on my computer right now, but I enjoyed some of the references you made and hope to come back to view the viddies when I can!!

Tiggerlane said...

matt-man - I'm afraid to admit that I don't know what a "high hard one" is - but if she's in need of one, I'd happily support your administration of it!

matt - you and I TOTALLY agree. Amazing.

lightning bug's butt - (interesting name, btw) - glad you stopped by. And you are right, the hate does come from both sides. Maybe it's easier for me to enjoy Bill Maher b/c he's a dude, and doesn't seem quite as mean as Coulter.

swampy - the instructions should be in your inbox. Are you trying to ruin my reputation as a Neophyte?

lizard princess - thanks for stopping by! And hopefully you can get it to work soon. Come back when you are fully functional.

She thinks she is so smart. Too bad she is really an idiot. Maybe if she ate at least a happy meal, kept the food down, she be in a better mood. :P *LOL*

JennieBoo said...

She's such a B with an itch.

My brother-in-law LOVES her (I'll forgive him).

She does and says the things she does just to get attention. And what a low blow. Speaking of a person's death that way. SHAMEFUL! Then, also saying a fellow American should have been killed in a terrorist attack! WHAT?!?!???! (Does she think that about the 9/11 victims who weren't Republican?)

Normally, I don't like Chris Matthews, but kudos to him for telling her she shouldn't be so "negative".

*I'll get off my soapbox now...sorry*

Tiggerlane said...

debs - happy meal! That was GREAT!

jennieboo - soapbox banter is TOTALLY allowed (and encouraged) here. I just can't stand people who spew hatred - and then for her to make money for it? Shameful!
