COULTER BRINGS CLASS TO THE VIEW
By Barbara Stanley
I received a heads up notice that Ann Coulter was going to be on the ABC gal gabfest, The View, so I decided to tune in. I tuned in, unfortunately on the wrong day at first and watched the entire program. Whatta piece of crapolitics. There was not one topic that caught my interest.
However, I did manage to get my days straight and watched on Wednesday when Ann was the guest host, sitting in for Barbara Walters. And for the first time ever, class was on stage like never before. Ann brought not only beauty but also incredible brains to the panel. Of course, Ann barely got a word in and at my count only finished one sentence without being rudely interrupted by the other women on the stage. For example, right after Ann was asked about her book, she was interrupted with a remark on a completely different subject as one of the women went for a cheap laugh, talking about the new ‘porn study’ being done. The chat went on for some minutes discussing (sans Ann) several kinds of sex, how folks react to viewing different couplings between men and women, women and women and men and men.
Unfortunately, the momentum went to Ann when Ann mentioned that porn study was funded by democrats who say we cannot afford a tax cut. Zounds! Truth! Uh oh, can’t let that happen, can’t let the truth come out about how democrats will use taxpayers’ money for yet another moronic ‘study’. Quick thinking (or rather damage control) by the liberal women at The View brought a weak riposte, in an effort to keep the humour scatological and the tenor superficial as the women quickly directed the topic back to cheap shots with the remark to smear J.E. Hoover as a cross-dressing homophobe and blame the GOP for being smut-minded closet sex freaks. Substance? Not from these democrat, liberal moron women. Yet another pandering to the lowest denominator, the basest appeal so typical of the dems: when in doubt, talk about sex.
One of the women asked Ann if she liked to watch women-on-women porn and Ann wittily remarked about the recent incident which might fall into that category, a love fest between two women: Katy Couric interviewing Hillary Clinton. The audience, of course, booed. But Ann was correct.
From the very beginning of the program, they started right in on Ann because her skirt was too short, in their opinion. Of course, one of the first commercials was for Friday’s guest, a young pop singer, Biance, who was posed belly down, breasts in obvious view, low-cut blouse, singing some song. But Ann’s skirt was called “a belt” and the women chided her in a feminist way, suggesting that showing some leg is somehow a cheap way to get attention. Sure. And that’s why these hags show up in comfortable shoes, housecoats and no makeup.
The panel went for the cheap laughs, lied through their teeth (it’s a fact: truth has no purchase at this table of harpies) and pretty much diverted the topic from Ann’s latest masterpiece Treason and moved right along to the study on porn… and actually said Republicans watch more porn than democrats. Oh, really! Guess the ladies on The View have conveniently forgotten the video rentals at the White House during the debased co-presidency of the Clintons. That White House was not only known for the pig-in-chief’s scandalous behaviour but this trend continued with the staff who were logged in as renting not only porn but animal porn, too.
The rest of the program was pretty much a bust but I noticed something I found interesting but not surprising: whenever Ann spoke up, acted like a part of the ‘group’ as a guest host should, Joy Behar had a look on her face that told exactly how distasteful she found anything Ann had to say and, I surmise, Ann herself.
You know how someone, unconsciously, will register on their face exactly how they truly feel about something? How sometimes someone will shake their head ‘no’ when they are lying through their teeth (something Hillary Clinton does all the time, by the way)? Joy should take a look at a tape of the show and see just how ugly her face was at those moments. Faces don’t lie and that mug was telling tons!
I will happily admit my prejudice towards Ann. I appreciate classy, intelligent, witty and truly beautiful (inside as well as out) women and Ann is a heroine of mine. This young woman makes the harpies on the Left seethe with jealousy, anger and hatred and it was only thinly veiled on The View. And not only does Ann shine but she tackles the hardest topics, in this case, the smearing and distortions of the Left all during the McCarthy hearings, where Joe was doing his job of protecting the country by bringing to light the infiltration of Stalin’s commies in our government, in the White House as advisors, in the State Department and in other places in our republic. (In July 1995 the Intelligence Community ended a 50-year silence regarding one of cryptology's most splendid successes - the VENONA Project. VENONA was the codename used for the U.S. Signals Intelligence effort to collect and decrypt the text of Soviet KGB and GRU messages from the 1940's. These messages provided extraordinary insight into Soviet attempts to infiltrate the highest levels of the United States Government.
When the next guest Peter Boyle, from Everybody Loves Raymond, came on stage, he was asked, not Ann who is the expert, about Joe McCarthy, yet Boyle lost his train of thought halfway through saying McCarthy was mentally deranged. No one asked Ann, who has researched the matter and has elucidated how McCarthy was right. Joy Behar actually kept her back turned on Ann who was seated at the end of the panel and pretty much excluded by way of proximity from the discussion at hand. Nice way to treat a guest, eh? Hell, when I was a child, I was taught it was a slight to turn one’s back on another… and later on I learned, that rudeness is only permitted when enforcing the “social slight” in dealing with an enemy. But Ann was all class as she smiled, politely interjected when she could get a word in edgewise and maintain her perfect demeanor and composure. The women at The View could learn a lot from Ann about how to treat others.
Isn’t it just amazing, those very same folks who think they know better than the rest of us how to comport themselves have no clue whatsoever of polite behaviour. But then, I guess it isn’t really that surprising since they worship Bill and Hillary Clinton, two of the crudest, rudest folks in the country.
I really wish that someone would give Ann her own program. Even when she is on Hannity and Colmes or any other program, she barely gets a word in lest truth run rampant and show up the incompetents who reign on talk television. Or better yet, make her Attorney General.
At the ending credits, one of the hosts thanked Ann and asked if she had fun but even before Ann could answer her “yes”, another harpy called Ann a “hater” several times…. Just couldn’t let a moment of courtesy pass. Then Meredith Viera told the audience that everyone would get a free copy of Ann’s new blockbuster Treason (which was outselling Hillary’s Lying History even before Treason hit the shelves) and her face was what my mother would have called “a real puss”… in short, not the face of a happy camper at all. Good. Let them out themselves for the nasty-hearted, mean-spirited, jealous hags and enemies of truth they are.
I can’t wait to read Ann’s book Treason and trust the rest of the country will, as Ann later remarked on Hannity and Colmes “actually read” her book as opposed to those thousands bought by Hillary’s friends that probably even now languish in some warehouse somewhere. Thank you Ann, for another lesson in truth and justice and the American (and not antiAmerican liberal) way. God bless you for the yeoman’s work you do. You are a national treasure.
