Seriously, thinking people CAN feel differently than you. These assumptions that if someone disagrees with the left's agenda, they must be
getting paid off is both extremely ignorant and extremely arrogant.
It's not arrogant, nor ignorant to debate the possibility that there are more conservative pundits on the payroll. That's just being logical and
following the preset pattern.
Personally, I don't think she is, because if it ever got out, it would tear down the Bush government. I mean, if it actually came out that this
administration were paying money for lip service from a woman who advocates nuclear holocaust, the ardent support of Joe McCarthy, the massacre and or
conversaion of millions from Islam to Christianity, and nothing short of the stripping of liberals' civil rights.
Bush would be done.
It would confirm the world's and America's greatest fears. All of those terrible things that people say...would be actually be true.
That being said, the things stated above are not the work of a thinking person. They're not the work of rational mind. They're the reactionary
internal dialog of a crazy person with severe psychological problems. A troubled, paranoid, recovering alcoholic without a functioning coping
mechanism that allows to her to get rid of her anger in a healthy way.
Franlky, she just makes me curious about her childhood. I'm utterly, utterly convinced that Ann Coulter's hate for all things liberal, and her
attempts to unmask their secret Un-American activity, the dark, awful things they do behind closed doors, is actually her own fear of being people
discovering her OWN secret sins. People might see who SHE really is inside and what's she's really done in her past. Probably no worse than what you
might find in any suburb, in any town, in any state in America.
But, not in her mind. In her mind, she herself is bad.
She's a polemicist, because I personally think she wants to be hated. I think she has so much self loathing, that she throws herself out there with
the most grandiose statements to be punished. I love how casually everyone forgets that Ann was fired by MSNBC in 1997 for saying to a Vietnam
Veterans Group, on air no less, "No wonder you guys lost".
Ann Coulter is an angry person. She lives in world of sadness and hopelessness. Believe me, there is a psychological treatise that could be written
P.S. Also, while I'm sure you support ALL freedom of speech from the ENTIRE fourht estate, even those wacky liberals who don't support YOUR agenda,
I don't want any pundit to act as a PAID voice box for any government agency.
