Ann gets it right,
This review is from: Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama (Kindle Edition)
There are a lot of folks out there who dislike Ann, even on the right, and I'll freely admit that I used to be one of them. I thought she was a haughty, misinformed purveyor of lowbrow conservatism. She was the most non-PC personality I'd ever read.
What I didn't realize is that she is intentionally incendiary in order to make points that more PC people are incapable of. "Mugged" is quite possibly the most inflammatory thing she has ever written, which puts it very high in the running for the most non-PC collection of ink and paper in the last two decades. What business does a rich tall skinny white woman have talking about race?!...Well, as it turns out, this is the best treatment of the issue I've encountered.
This book is crucial because the point is even MORE important than the theme she takes on in Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right, especially going into the election. Read properly [fairly], "Mugged" is a de-hypnotization manual for those who have always (falsely) assumed that Democrats are the party for racial minorities.
As we head into an election where minorities are expected to vote for Obama by an overwhelming margin, this book is an excellent reminder that it is Republicans, not Democrats, who are most closely aligned with the values and policy positions of minorities. You must read this if you are interested in the truth of race in politics.
Other must-reads for the 2012 Election include the AMAZING quick read 2012 Election: The 106 BEST Reasons NOT to Vote for Obama from Lawrence Allen and Michael Medved's hope-giving The Odds Against Obama: Why History and Logic Make the President a Likely Loser. Throw in Dinesh D'Souza's awesome Obama's America: Unmaking the American Dream just for good measure, and your conservative reading list for the next 40 days should be complete.

A blonde white woman has every bit as much right to talk about race as anyone else on this planet. What makes anyone else an expert just because they're of a certain gender or color? And what makes someone "guilty" (as in white "guilt"), just because of their color?

I think the question was rhetorical.

I think that it is presumptuous of you to say that she and the GOP represents minorities. And her tirades are only half truths just like her knowledge of history is full of half truths.

LOL. Spirestar asks, "What business does a rich tall skinny white woman have talking about race?"
I'd like to know is someone who only reads and positively recommends anti-Obama books and books by Coulter anything but slavish Coulter admirer? It's not a review, it's just a continuation of the vilification in Coulter's book.

I like the cover image. You can really make out her Adam's apple.

Maybe that's the key: big Adam's apple = male = thinks rationally.
Contrast that with liberal male writers, who probably couldn't pass a testosterone test.
Libs are really hitting the skids - they can't engage with ideas, so they criticize her looks. Their minds are at 3rd-grade level. What a herd of losers.
