This week on Radio Free Delingpole, the incomparable meets the irrepressible (we’ll leave it to you to decide which adjective applies to whom) as Ann Coulter stops by to discuss her new book Never Trust a Liberal Over Three-Especially a Republican (Buy it — that’s a direct order). Also, what to do about the divisions in the GOP, civil rights and the black vote, the problem with Libertarians, and is James a RINO? Ann makes the call.

    Remind me, what was Ann’s position on Pat Toomey vs. Arlen Specter?

  2. James Gawron

    James,

    Ahhh, MS Blue Eyes music to my old ears.  Nixon was a pathetic amateur compared to the BHO three ring circus of lying corruption.  Dear Ann right on target.

    I’m having too much fun.

    Regards,

    Jim

    I was torn about the graphic… I was leaning this way:

    EJ,

    You got it perfect.  Don’t change a pixel.

    Regards,

    This one was a great listen. Two very entertaining people, neither of which minces words.

    This one was almost too powerful.  It was like looking directly into the sun.  

    Wait, I mean looking directly into two suns.

    Loved it!  

  7. The speech on ‘let’s not attack each other, but work together’ would have been more effective if it was not accompanied by attacking the ones who want to get rid of/primary the squishes, etc. I like Ann but she lost me to large extent after the Christie thing and others. The urban, eastern, DC roots are exposed. 
  8. Petty Boozswha

    I agree totally with Ann about immigration being the overwhelming issue of our time,  as Bertolt Brecht said of the Stasi during the East German uprising;

    Would it not be easier In that case for the government To dissolve the people And elect another?

    Still I can’t conceive of any plausible candidate on our side who could beat Hillary other than Christie. I had a lot of enthusiasm for Rubio, but he has been rolled by Chuck Schumer  worse than any politician since Colin Powell was rolled by the French before the Iraq War. I still believe Christie would be amenable to sincerely enforce E-verify, hopefully build a fence, etc. as part of his amnesty giveaway and I can’t think of any other politician on the national stage that would do it. Who else do we have on the bench that can win? Christie is already turning into the 2016 Mitch Daniels.

    Best Ann Coulter interview evaaaahhh.

    Very, very lucid explanation of the relationship between her and Maher and why she appears on his show.

    And no one should forget Christie’s love affair with CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood, and probably, Grover N. Seems he want to act PC and lump all Muslims into one category and that category are the peaceful ones. Couldn’t be more of a stereotype than that and nothing more wrong.

    I still say let’s see how thing vegetate over the next year. I do think us anti-Democrats leadership types need to coalesce over one or two candidates sooner rather than later.

    Ann mentions that Democrats don’t primary their “phony conservative” Democrat Senators in southern red states, and thinks Republicans should copy them. But she has the dynamic wrong.

    The “phony conservative” Democrat senators talk conservative then vote reliably liberally, including for far left initiatives like Obamacare. The similar phenomenon on the Republican side would be senators who talk liberal but vote reliably conservative. Who are these senators? I know of none.

    What Republicans have are RINOs who are in effect “phony conservative” Democrats in the Republican party. Sure, they don’t vote with the extreme left on things like Obamacare, but neither do they vote for initiatives to roll back the ever-expanding government, and they reliably vote for the creeping expansion of government and the erosion of freedom. There comes a time when that sort of Republican just isn’t good enough anymore, and that time is now when big government is just about to reach critical mass.

    Even though I think it’s great Ann goes on Lefty shows, Maher is gross. A long time ago when I heard him (and Geraldo) ‘approving’ of a woman teacher having sex with a young student I decided I’d had enough. I mean would you trust these people to babysit (or hire) your kids? Yuck. I get really tired of this sort of thing: I disagree with Harry Reid, but we’ve been friends for a long time. Yuck. Sorry, associations rub off.

    This was a really good interview.

    J Climacus, I think Ann is saying you have to pick and choose. You just can’t fight the whole world all at once. Go after the Dems and at the same time, pick one or two egregious Republicans to primary.

  14. Indaba

    Fabulous, James. You brought out Ann in a different way and I actually liked her. Her loyalty to Bill Maher is to be admired. Bill Maher did have a great show and Dennis Praeger was on it and there was great discussion. 

    I like the cross cultural interviews. How about a Canadian, James?

    If there only one or two egregious republicans our lives would be much easier and more conservative.

  16. Mark Driscoll

    Ann was as good as I have ever heard her.  My takeaway was her reminding people that the natural constituency of Republicans is (should be) the vanishing middle class.  Big business is equally as bad for the average person as big government.  If we could somehow field candidates who were for small government, competition between businesses, low taxes……

    My question is where does such a candidate go to raise the millions necessary to run for election when he (she) is not promising to steal Americans’ money and give it to the donors?
