Is politics no longer to be taken seriously ?


Listen to this podcast by linguist Geoff Nunberg on NPR's Fresh Air about how Ann Coulter has turned political dialogue into Reality TV.   What he may not have known is that Ann Coulter has sunk to a new low.  Now she licences her likeness and voice as a talking Barby Doll.   According to Meranda Whittaker of talkingpresidents.com "She gets a royalty on every doll we sell". 

Well for my part i am happy to laugh about it ... after all Ann is laughing all the way to the bank ... and some of the distortions her Barby Doll says are hilarious.  Too bad her doll is not selling ,  ... i want to laught all the way to the bank too.   May i suggest, however, that for  informed rational political dialogue you look elsewhere.

The case against Coulter for plagiarism is sooo unfair ...  who's wants to begrudge such a pretty girl a bit of cut and paste?

You gotta love the way this broad thinks ...



source:  Flatulent Raccoon Theory  Page 214 of Godless: The Church of Liberalism, by Ann Coulter

Throw in enough words like imagine, perhaps, and might have -- and you've got yourself a scientific theory! How about this: Imagine a giant raccoon passed gas and perhaps the resulting gas might have created the vast variety of life we see on Earth. And if you don't accept the giant raccoon flatulence theory for the origin of life, you must be a fundamentalist Christian nut who believes the Earth is flat. That's basically how the argument for evolution goes [emphasis in original].
i dont remember any of that kind of imagineing being in there.

Ann Coulter's syndicator denies Coulter lifted material
source: ...
"There are only so many ways you can rewrite a fact and minimal matching text is not plagiarism,"
...... notice that this headline is buried in most publications that made a stink when they published your headline. To the left, the seriousness of the charge is much more important than the truth of the situation.
Yep like i said above: "The case against Coulter for plagiarism is sooo unfair".  Thanks for the update .
