A word to those of you out there who have yet to be offended by something I have written or said Please be patient I am working as fast as I can Ann Coulter, 2006Is she ever Ever since the publication of her Clinton bashing debut, High Crimes and Misdemeanors, right wing fire brand Ann Coulter has made herself one of the most talked about figures in contemporary Amer A word to those of you out there who have yet to be offended by something I have written or said Please be patient I am working as fast as I can Ann Coulter, 2006Is she ever Ever since the publication of her Clinton bashing debut, High Crimes and Misdemeanors, right wing fire brand Ann Coulter has made herself one of the most talked about figures in contemporary American life and has done so by issuing a near continuous barrage of insult and invective, which has been described as shameless, cruel, shrill, bombastic, and mean spirited, grossly inappropriate, hate speech She has called the 9 11 widows witches and harpies, referred to Muslims as ragheads, called Al Gore a total fag, and said that both New York Times editor Bill Keller and antiwar congressman Jack Murtha deserved to die Yet with each new statement and each new book launch Coulter somehow manages to co opt the media as a megaphone for her attacks, while emerging from the backlash miraculously unscathed.Until now With Soulless, political commentator Susan Estrich takes on Ann and the Coulter culture she has created, exposing how the pundit provocatrice has downgraded our political discourse with her irresponsible rhetoric, personal attacks, and slanderous asides Trawling through Coulter s history of often violent public statements, Estrich asks which are cynical the pundit and her headline grabbing drive by character assassinations, or the networks who happily bring her back for Soulless also casts a light on the Anns, wannabes like Michelle Malkin and Glenn Beck, whose imitation Coulterisms coarsen our culture with every passing news cycle And, most important, she challenges us the readers, the voters to remember that behind the huckster s rhetoric lurks a dangerous reactionary whose real agenda is wildly out of step with the American public.As Estrich says, She knows exactly what she is doing And she is scary as hell because of it.

First off, let me just say that I'm not really into politics, but if I have political leanings, they tend to be more to the Left. That being said, I specifically picked this book up (off the clearance rack since I would never pay full price for it) because of the cover's obvious spoof of Ann Coulter and her book, Godless: The Church of Liberalism. And I didn't really know what to expect from this book, but I guess what I was hoping for was more of a point-by-point counterargument of all the igno [...]
I really wish this book had been more about disproving the statements made in the original book Godless and less about Ann Coulter personally. While I hate Ann as much as the next free-thinking American, I feel like the book should have made less personal attacks and more political attacks. I think I have less of a problem with Ann personally as I do politically. I find her hypocritical, closed-minded, and ultimately a deceitful phony. I wish the book would have gone after her two-sided public v [...]
What a hypocrite estrich is. This is all about how much hate she has for Ann and anyone that agrees with AnnWhat a hate filled book.
Oh Susan, a face for radio and a voice for pantomime.
I've said it many times, but will say it here again: I don't know which it worse, that Ann Coulter has a national platform for her vitriolic, hate-filled libelous cruelty (enough adjectives there?) or that people actually listen to/read/believe her bile.Susan Estrich dismantles Ann Coulter, not without interjecting personal feelings, and provides the reader with the sources of Coulter's comments. There's a paraphrasing of the three laws of thermodynamics that puts them in laymen's terms: 1) You [...]
I wish I could give this more stars. The subject was good, the reasoning was good and it had interesting topics, but I just couldn´t get over how it was written. No, I don´t want to read interview after interview, I expect the writer to write a story based on those interview. And if a writer really wants to attack another writer, from now on please do it through e-mails. I don´t want to read it.
While the author did go off topic occasionally (for instance, there is a chapter that seems to be solely about Green Dot schools, although I like the idea), I feel it's a very good book about Ann Coulter, and the "WTF"? of why people like her.
I can't stand Ann Coulter and this book highly entertained me. I would love to see a real life interaction between these two ladies! It may be on You Tube somewhere
