BookWORMS: Open Season on Ann Coulter

By Debbie Schlussel
If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. That’s apparently the mantra of three liberal authors who can’t stop Ann Coulter’s popularity on TV and in the book world. Sort of.
Three different books are out this month against Ann. You can tell what they’re about by their juvenile dust-jackets. Yes, sometimes, you can judge a book by its cover.
One of them, “I Hate Ann Coulter,” attacks her for her former hair color and weight in high school:

By examining her life . . ., interviewing high school classmates who remember Ann when she was a chubby brunette (presumably before she sold her soul to be thin, blond, and pure evil), . . . we hope to do our part to put her in her place once and for all.

Witless: Susan Estrich’s Dumb Ann Coulter Attack

Hair and weight? Is that the best they can do? After all, there are plenty of women on their side who are still brunette and chubby, like, say, Rosie O’Donnell. We write “they” and “their” because the author(s) didn’t have the guts to use a real name. Instead, the book is written by “Unanimous.” Another, “Brainless: The Lies and Lunacy of Ann Coulter,” by “journalist” Joe Maguire, lost us at the title. Whatever you think about her, no-one can say she’s brainless. She’s brilliant, which is why the left hates her.
Possibly the worst one, however, is, “Soulless: Ann Coulter and the Right-Wing Church of Hate,” by left-wing FOX News Contributor Susan Estrich. We used to think that she was one of the more palatable liberals because she managed to lose the Dukakis campaign with finesse (even if it was unfortunately against one of the worst Republican Presidents, George H.W. Bush). But this one should have had a green cover–for jealousy. At least Ann never represented Claus Von Bulow (Estrich brags he was a client).

The most sad thing about Estrich’s book is the cover, which is supposed to be her dressed as Ann. It looks more like a cross between Ann and Meatloaf. And Susan, was it really necessary to wear your Jewish star on the cover? A number of us from the Hebrew persuasion happen to like Ann.
Even USA Today’s “Book Buzz” termed the troika of books attacking Ann, “Merciless.” We predict book buyers will be merciless, too: Don’t look for the total purchases of all three books combined to come close to the sales of Ann’s last book, “Godless: The Church of Liberalism.”

Ann Coulter is brutally honest. At times honesty proves to be most unkind. But thatís just the way it is. Sometimes Ann Coulter treats the liberal left as they have treated her, and they don’t like it. But I canít recall anytime where she was hateful. As far as her detractors calling her brainless, well, just consider the ignorance of the source.

More liberal book-length punditry: their trust-fund dollars and major publisher’s book advances at work!
This’ll be fun to throw back in their faces, esp. w/ my insider’s knowledge from 2 Democratic national campaigns.
I noticed Katrina vanden Heuvel’s (Publisher of The Nation) skin & skirt bookcover on her Dictionary of Republicanisms, too:

This makes my weekend, thanks!

Trashing the way someone looked in high school describes ignorance! I’ve lived all over the U.S. and five years overseas. Liberals are the wild card in dealing with people, they will stab you in the back and turn on you before you ever see it coming. They pry with false sincerity, probing for weaknesses to assault you with.
Their low self esteem, self loathing, and hypocrisy make them, in my experience, the most dangerous people to your personal security.

Agreed. This is another great take from Debbie. Thank you.
Estrich is an arrogant leftist (excuse me socialist) who lacks any common sense when it comes to politics. She should stick to Klaus Van Bulow or better yet the next or the next Dukakis.
As for anonymous, if you read the history of propaganda, you will see this is a tactic of extremist cowards.

I hate liberals!!!

Coulter freaks me out. Anyone that shows compassion towards abortion clinic bombers seems pretty crazy to me.

Ahh…the typical Susan Estrich double-standard is in play once again. The best she, and others, can do is engage in ad hominem attack merely proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that they have already lost in regards to intelligent discourse. Estrich has shown herself to be unable to engage intellectual conservatives in debate without resorting to ad hominem which further proves she is unknowledgable and desperate. However her extreme arrogance bordering upon megalomania keeps her in a fantasy world where she dreams she is intellectually superior to any and all conservatives. However history shows just how little and petty she truly is. Her book won’t even register a blip. It’ll just be an excuse to get her massive ego stroked at book signings located in meccas of liberalism.

I just want to know whose body they put Susan Estrich’s head on in Photoshop. That just looks totally wrong.

I’d like to rip that Star of David right off her fugly fat neck — I am sick of liberal Jews pretending that they speak for all of us, and particularly when they target Christians and conservatives. Those who don’t know any better, perhaps because they’ve never met any conservative or religious Jews, understandably begin to think that all Jews are promoters of atheism, liberalism, communism, socialism, and in general, immorality.
By the way, what’s with everyone wearing a little black dress? Um . . . imitation is the highest form of flattery?
