Dr. J.’s Short Shot: The Wisdom of Ann Coulter

by Steven Jonas, MD, MPH

This morning, Ann Coulter, along with a steady stream of Republican heavyweights (and no Democrats) appeared on “Fox and Friends,” the “fair and balanced” morning show of the Fox “News” Channel. She shared a couple of pieces of political wisdom with her audience that I thought might enlighten our readers about what she is really about (that is, if you need any further enlightening). First, she told us that the prime reason that the Republicans need to retain control of Congress was that only the Bush Administration could be trusted to secure our nation’s security. This on the morning that the New York Times revealed that since March until Yesterday, the Department of Defense had up on the web a site about the dastardly Saddam Hussein that showed, among other things, how to make an atomic bomb. When asked how she would compare the Foley scandal with the Kerry scandal (sic), Ms. Coulter allowed that the former only concerned one single individual who needed help, while the latter concerned the whole of the Democratic Party, revealing how traitorous it is (well, you know those liberals). And there you have it, folks: the wisdom (sic, and sick) of Ann Coulter.

  1. Fair and Balanced: What do the numbers (gathered in a recent report on the big media outlets) 77% and 12% tell you? Someone has to balance out the now self-proclaiming pro-Democrat news agencies!

    As for your critique of Ann’s comments, where exactly is she wrong? Is it more reasonable to conclude that one man’s child pornography addiction blankets the entire Republican party or that a guy who has made numerous anti-military comments over 4 decades and was supported by millions of Democrats speaks for his constituents?

    It’s amazing that you and your party lack any ability to tackle or comprehend any sort of logical reasoning.

  2. So i guess Aaron, you forgot there was a cover-up in the whole Foley debacle.
    And the fact that Foley didn’t want to run for re-election, but was told to serve one more term.
    And the fact, that he just happens to be the Co-Chair of the caucus for missing and exploited childern.
    Great leadership on your side of the isle.
