About: talking ann coulter figure from speak to me catalog


Occasionsly we get hate mail at the www.speaktomecatalog.com when we carry a product that rubbs someone the wrong way.  The following dialogue which i will repeat here verbatem started out in that manner ... but read to the end ... [illustrations mine].

I've been a fan of your products for years.  I find them a bit loony and altogether charming in a world in which charm is a dying art. I have a very sick friend in Australia to whom I want to send something zany and cheerful. She needs cheering up badly. So it was with enthusiasm that I opened your latest bulletin ... and encountered a doll of one of the most despicable humans of which I have knowledge. That was a nasty downer.  Reading your fawning praise of this venomous hate-filled bitch was far worse. I hope you have legions of dimwitted, narrow-minded, throwbacks who share your fondness for this Limbaugh wannabe (Limbaugh, the self-righteous doper). Because god-fearing, country-serving, patriotic American liberal intellectuals like me will no longer be subsidizing your political agenda with our purchases. If you don't have a Rush doll for sale yet, don't tarry (that means 'wait').  Fly your true colors out in the open (I know that's hard for Republicans, but do your best.) How about Ronnie the Retard? Or 'What's a few thousand dead soldiers when you drive a Lexus', Bush II? Cheney with a shotgun?


Ann Coulter on your otherwise delightful product list is the equivalent of Baskin-Robbins offering shit as a new flavor.

Never contact me again.

Bruce King,

Thanks for your insightful comments.  Actually i posted the Coulter Doll initially so that i could poke fun of some of her ridiculous sayings and to see if she would sell at the website.  If you have been following my blog you would see that i am not in her camp.  She is selling the right wing and herself like it was toothpaste, see my blog and in particular this item.   Now I don't know if she actually licensed the doll or not ... i suspect not ... but if she did,. that shows us just how far the right wing will go in peddling their ideas to the American public.  Perhaps this is how elections are going to be won (or stolen) in the 21th century ... i don't know ... but i don't like it.  Me i can't stand all of  this rightleftism,  it just creates static so that the real issues are ignored. 

But, Mr King, you may get your wish anyway ... so far we have taken orders for exactly 1 doll.  Apparently she is not all that popular.  We will see.  If we don't take any more orders for her in the next week we will need to pull the product in any case.  Perhaps most people see right through this broad and are not taken in by her cutsie phrases. Speaking of which i think you are one up on her with your "Ann Coulter on your otherwise delightful product list is the equivalent of Baskin-Robbins offering shit as a new flavor." can i use it for my blog ?  Or better still can i post your letter verbatim ?
