Excellent look at the current practices of the Democratic Party (from 2001 - to the present).

This book should have a strong warning label. My face still hurts from laughing so hard. This book is a masterpiece of sarcasm, irony and a good degree of truth. If you can't take a joke or don't appreciate mild scarcasm, it's probably not for you. But if you are familiar with any of Ms. Coulters prior works or her persona as a talking head, you will enjoy it thoroughly, as I did.

Light read and quite humorous. Plenty of sarcasm. If you are indeed a liberal I doubt you will see the humor at all.
I got a chuckle at the tongue and cheek style she wrote this with.

I consider myself moderate, and know decent conservatives who are truly concerned about the state of affairs our government is in and want what is best for people without being religious bible-thumpers or the like.

Unfortunately, Ms. Coulter is not one of these sane conservatives. Some of the things that come out of her mouth just befuddle me. One thing that stuck in my mind is how she said that the best way to solve the problems in the Middle East is to force everyone there to convert to Christianity.

... Really? Really? And yet this woman has plenty of followers who just love and agree with her. This is not the only wacky thing she says in this book... read this book as a joke to laugh at the things she says... or just shake your head in sadness that someone could believe such stupid and hateful things.

Course, her response to the Zimmerman trial is rather telling in itself.

First, I need to acknowledge some of the criticisms of this book. Ann Coulter is often abrasive, and even obnoxious in her prose and interviews. Point taken. Also, this book is being knocked a star for basically being a rehash of her columns over the last few years. I would have liked that to be a bit more openly advertised on the book itself, as unlike the other book I read by her this one is really not new material.

Now for the book itself and its actual content. I think that normally pointing out that the review is of the books content is an absurd redundancy; however most of the reviews here are simply opinions about Ann and her views, not the book. So, let's look at the book. It is quite funny. Several sections on airline security measures after 9-11 had me laughing so hard I couldn't breathe. Make no mistake; her writing is excellent and very funny.

On several subjects her points are quite disturbing. For example, her views on speaking with liberals and ensuring they are angry are deeper than they appear: "People don't get angry when lies are told about them; they get angry when the truth is told about them". (Page 10) Her point being that it is the truth gets the most rage as a reaction. Her insights on the liberal reaction to war today and how it varies to previous wars, such as Bosnia, are interesting in that they expose a double standard which is obvious. (Page 62) Her column on how the John Kerry plan is to appeal to the French is so funny it is hard to read (Page 64).

Her exposure of the Democrat candidates' attempts at trying to appear knowledgeable and respectful of religious beliefs needs to be read.

Format: Hardcover
I am _still_ waiting for a review that isn't partisan: Could someone in the center please read this book? I feel like the only ones who read it do so either so they can agree with everything she says or solely so that they may hate her even more than before.

I suspect, however, that someone who is completely non-partisan would say that though the book is funny, it is funny in a way that is insensitive and low-brow; valid points about liberals may exist, but the amount of ad hoc insults and exaggerated vituperatives she uses tends to discredit her to a point where she seems incapable of reasonable thought, convictions aside.

I also think too many of her opinions are based on Christianity. Conservatism isn't exclusive to that religion.

Further, compromise is not a sin; personal integrity regarding one's opinions is admirable but stubborn close-mindedness is not.

Coulter refuses to put _any_ fault with conservatives (aside from those who supposedly cater to liberals); that is ridiculous. It is seldom that one side is totally innocent.

Frankly, this book is childishly opinionated -- as a graded essay, I suspect it would receive a very low score. She presents no counter-arguments. She insults. She replaces colloquy with contumely. It is very difficult to read, like a many-paged internet rant.

And all of my own personal reactions aside, I have heard it said that the number of fabrications and inaccuracies in her books is rather unbelievable -- and that her publishers refuse to correct them. I don't know it that's true or not. I haven't the inclination to do counter-research.

From a literary stand-point, I would call the writing amateurish, but that's nothing unusual for a political book.
