I'm probably Ann's biggest fan, but this is not a real book. It is a collection of quotations from her earlier books and other sources. While the idea of providing her enemies a reference volume so they can quote her more accurately is fun, it makes for dull reading. The best parts are the introductions to each section that are new materal.

I thought I was going to be getting an actual book with a lot of good arguments, backed up by political insight and observations. But it turns out, this book is just a compilation of a bunch of Ann Coulter's quotes from previous articles, books, or lectures. I read about half the book, then got bored from brain destimulation. For my first Coulter book, this was a big disappointment.

Should be in the comedy or humor section instead of politics. Different format from her other books. The bottom line is Ann Coulter is funny, funny, funny. This is a book to be taken on roadtrips where you can read the bullets out loud to your "carload" and make their sodas come out of their noses. Later, when the message sinks in and you realize that she is usually spot on with her on-liners, it hurts a little bit as you realize that the truth hurts.

Conservative saleswoman of the year, Ann Coulter, believes that if Democrats had brains, they'd all be Republicans by now.

Looking for a laugh? Here are some of my favourite lines (from her book of quotations) you'll be reciting for years:

1. My favourite: "Scratch a `civil libertarian,' find a fascist." -page 4

2. "Liberals will pass laws to protect children from `secondhand smoke' but not from being doused with poisonous saline solution or having their skulls crushed in the womb." - page 38

3. "Guns are our friends because in a country without guns, I'm what's known as `prey.' All females are." - page 125

4. "Morality matters, not polls. In 1938, the polls were not very strong for doing anything in World War II." - page 138

5. "Luxuriating in the warmth of mainstream media admiration, liberal saints get crazier and crazier. They're "beloved," we're `divisive'." - page 183

6. "People who say `everybody does it' are announcing nothing more than the implacable fact that they do it." - page 211

7. "Alger Hiss is the epitome of liberalism: long on Ivy League credentials. Short on character." - page 198

Funny and searingly controversial, If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans challenges the much-ballyhooed "Golden Age" of Clintonism too. Connecticut's Confucius says (page 61): "What actually happened during the Clinton presidency? No one can remember anything about it except the bimbos, the lies, and the felonies. Fittingly, in the final analysis, Clinton will not be remembered for what he did as president, but for who he did." I'll say.

Format: Hardcover
Sometimes Ann Coulter makes me squirm because I just don't get or agree with what she's saying or I think she's "gone too far." (She discusses those reactions by readers in the "Introduction.") This book is a collection of some of her more aggressive statements. I think her message that the Democrats are owned by the liberals is well taken, but the Republicans are no longer the viable alternative the title of the book implies.

Nevertheless, it is simply impossible for anyone who is not a liberal to read this book without: a) recognizing the behavior patterns of a liberal friend, acquaintance or politician; b) recognizing the absurdity of some condition or attitude promoted by liberalism. Despite the fact that she is a humorist as well as a political commentator, as you can see from the negative reviews here, to a liberal she just ain't funny. Of course, if liberals could recognize themselves in the caricatures and the inconsistencies in some of their stands, they probably wouldn't be liberals.

For example (p. 152): "Liberals' idea of civil discourse is no conservatives talking," which certainly explains some of the comments on this site and why people who haven't read the book believe they are justified in posting negative reviews.

The downside of Coulter's work is that her rhetoric ("Ted Kennedy: Apparently fat, drunk and stupid is ...."), which sells books to true believers, may also keep middle America away from her message. (In that context, liberals ought to be grateful that she is so strident.) Right or wrong, her observations about political debate, the media, morality, and the struggle against terrorism ought to be considered by every thoughtful American who is -- in the language of the polls -- "concerned about the direction our country is going."

Ann Coulter is quick, witty and smart. Despite her acerbic presentation, this book is more entertaining and informative than most of the political tomes available today.

I like Ann's books and columns. Fun stuff for many of us, 'mean' or 'stupid' for the challenged among us.

Back to this book...It's really just a collection of snippets of previous writings that are categorized and prefaced with short introductions. That's it. Nothing new here. It's like listening to Henny Youngman's one-liners for an hour. The first few are funny, but after awhile the format gets old. Same here.

I enjoyed the book, but I wouldn't purchase it. Odds are this review won't please Ann lovers or detractor's but what the heck.
