Definitive Anne Coulter remark

Recommended Posts

Another nail in the coffin of Trump's reelection hopes.

 

What will Coulter, 57, do when that shallow veneer of glamour goes away altogether?

If so, unrequited love is the kind Satine prefers.  She says so right here:

 

Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend
 
"The French are glad to die for love,
They delight in fighting duels,
But I prefer a man who lives and gives
Expensive jewels.
A kiss on the hand maybe quite continental
But diamonds are a girl's best friend
A kiss may be grand.. but it won't pay the rental on your humble flat
Or help you at the automat
Men grow cold as girls grow old
And we all lose our charms in the end
But square cut or pear shape these rocks don't lose there shape
Diamonds are a girl's best friend
... Tiffany's!
... Cartiea!
Black star rus course
Talk to me Harry Winston tell me all about it!
There may come a time when a lass needs a lawyer
But diamonds are a girl's best friend
There may come a time when a hard boiled employer thinks you're awful nice
But get that ice or else no dice
He's your guy when stocks are high but beware when they start to descend
Because that's when those louses go back to their spouses
Diamonds are a girl's best friend
I've heard of affairs that are strictly platonic
But diamonds are a girl's best friend
And I think affairs that you must keep the masonic are better bets
If little girls get big bagettes
Time rolls on and youth is gone and you can't straighten up when you bend
But stiff back or stiff knees you stand straight at.. Tiffany's...

You're the first person to get that joke. I'd pretty much given up hope.  :)

 

Here's where I know that song from:

I always get a kick out of the lyrics.  Very clever.

The Ann Coulter's on the far right have been laughed at for years and years and yet their still there. Newt Gingrich knows this script. He's transformed his party over the years sometimes with subtle bending depending on the political winds that blow along with Neoliberal policies. And then, he will ebb back towards the right. They'll tell us that this country at its core is really centrist-right. He'll say that the core conservative policy is one that calls for entitlement reform.

 

Entitlement reform. Exactly what does that mean? I'm rationally speaking, a conservative myself in many ways. If you say we need a solid economy, to me that means an economy that at its core benefits all Americans. If you say we need to reform entitlements to me that means we need to strengthen SS, and create single payer healthcare for all. Doing so would be good for the economy overall. Stop monopolistic practices, use anti trust laws that were put into place close to one hundred years ago. Give more people a good reason for participating in our Democracy. Those are conservative values I believe in Ann and Newt. Let's be clear, lets talk the numbers and tell the absolute truth before you preach about government debt burdening our citizens, please outline how your tax cuts for the rich have fared over the last several decades. Why don't we talk about climate change and pollution and it's true cost, or about the outcome of regime change or how supporting dictatorial regimes in the last seventy five years has fared?

 

I know, I used to love the Daily Show and the Colbert Report - two shows that consistently schooled a lot of our young people regarding what's going on in their world using comedy. 

It works half-way, but unfortunately it faces an uphill battle. 

 

Part of the problem with cable news is that they only illustrate the stupidity of the right-wing. They continually show the stupidity and it does make peoples blood boil, but that's it. When a progressive speaks they say to Alexandria Ocassio-Cortez, you go girl, but then they say, she is a self-declared Democratic Socialist. Just like they said Bernie Sanders was. 

 

Why not use that time to educate people on policy. Use stats from the CBO, and the BLS. Document what the heck is going on all over the world with US policies and who are our true allies and how can we together make a better world. Why the hell can't the world do something to stop the turmoil in Syria, in Yemen, in Venezuela? 

 

Our biggest threat is not China, NK, not even Pakistan. It is climate change. We need to deal with it now. And we need smart people to lead the way. 

 

This is a link to Sono Motors. It's not really a complete solar powered car, but it's a start. Imagine working for that company if you were a really smart young person just graduating from college with an engineering degree. Imagine working for something you truly believed in that could someday change the world in a positive way.

Allow me to translate. It means, in rightwing-cant,

 

"You don't need Medicare. If you can't afford care, then just die, you worthless tool. You don't need Social Security. Go to work you lazy f¿¢k. And if you're 80 and can't work, then just die."

 

Oh and also, "We're pro-life. Because we need young slaves workers."
