The by line of WPB is priceless. It wasn't a bunch of old folks who accidently voted wrong for Buchanan, it was that dumb bitch Coulter in the wrong fucking precinct. If she is convicted, I'll GLADLY settle for 'mere' community service, and have the press and every interview she has after that open with 'convicted columnist...'

Nothing like a criminal conviction to mess up your credibility huh Ann?

Go hold Ann's boney, reactionary hand, will you, and stop lecturing people on who you think needs anger management.

How is it anger simply saying someone could use some good prison time? And you know what? She is a bitch, too, so get over it.

It's been my experience that when a person, in this case Conservative columnist Ann Coulter, is suspected of committing a crime and they "refuse to cooperate in an investigation", chances are pretty good they've got something to hide. You don't think the fact that she's been dodging correspondence from the elections supervisor's office for 9 months looks suspicious?

When she registered to vote, she used her realtor's address rather than her own. That's fishy in itself. But then she went on to vote in a different precinct, even after being warned by an election official.

When the news media published a report about it, she claimed the reporters were "all retarded" and accused Palm Beach officials of having sexually transmitted diseases.

If you are right, and I don't believe you are, then she has made a very very poor choice in priorities. Instead of using that time to promote her book, maybe she should have taken the time to respond to a 9 month long investigation that could land her ass in jail for 5 years.

Thats the maximum possible, not the typical term given, theres a huge and significant difference and in no way compares to terms given for murder.

Umm..

From the source article:

Quote:
In July, Anderson said, he received a letter from Coulter's attorney, Marcos Daniel Jimenez D'Clouet. The letter said the attorney would only discuss the matter in person or by telephone because, he complained, Anderson had given details to the media. Anderson said the matter had to be discussed in writing.

A bit odd on the part of Mr. Anderson there?

Its because she is deliberately provocative and takes a opposing stance.

For example, here is a quote from her about 4 9/11 widows:

Quote:

These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzis. These self-obsessed women seemed genuinely unaware that 9/11 was an attack on our nation and acted as if the terrorist attacks happened only to them. ... I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much ... the Democrat ratpack gals endorsed John Kerry for president ... cutting campaign commercials... how do we know their husbands weren't planning to divorce these harpies? Now that their shelf life is dwindling, they'd better hurry up and appear in Playboy."

Also, on another subject:

Quote:

When asked by John Hawkins if she regretted a statement she made implying that she wished Timothy McVeigh had bombed The New York Times instead of the Federal building in Oklahoma City, Coulter replied: "Of course I regret it. I should have added, 'after everyone had left the building except the editors and reporters.'

Its no wonder people dislike her to the point where they find her in jail a good thing.

Along the same lines I just found out I voted not so much in the wrong precinct (I did advance voting since I will be in California on election day) but that I was given an electronic ballot with the wrong US Congressman to vote for. I've confirmed I'm in GA11 (Phil Gingrey) and not in GA13 (David Scott) but it is all after the fact. Luckily it wasn't done knowingly or they would be coming to drag me off to Gitmo.

You must produce a valid ID at your polling place.

Come to Georgia where you don't need a valid picture ID to vote. The Dems, and mainly the black caucus, keep stonewalling it and filing lawsuits because they think their poor, underpriveledged constituents can't spend any more money to get a GA License or ID. When told they would be given away for free they then fussed that these same poor people couldn't be pulled away from their low paying, non-living wage jobs to stand in line to get that free ID. Gotta love the logic on that one.

Perhaps. But people shouldn't be jailed for saying what they say, unless it violates the interests of national security. Freedom of thought is essential in Western civilization, and to wish someone great harm because he or she indulges in it -- even for money, so long as it does not violate national security -- is over the top, I would say.

But people shouldn't be jailed for saying what they say, unless it violates the interests of national security.

A person could be incarcerated for verbal assault against another person. For example, if Joe Blow says he's going to kill John Doe (and if it's clear he has motive and means to do so), I'm sure law enforcement could have him in cuffs before he has the opportunity.

That appears to be true. Thank you for the clarification.

I would hasten to say, though, that Coulter's writings do not approach any such situation.

I agree. Look at it as entertainment. She is the conservative answer to Bill Maher.

Uh, huh. Because Bill Maher too spends his days calling for Timothy McVeigh to bomb the NY Times building and mocks widows, the disabled, the sick and the elderly. But I do know that he boinked Ann Coulter back in the day when she was just a witch-in-training. Surprised his wang didn't drop right off.

You rant about enemy combatant's constitutional rights, yet when an American citizen exercises her constitutional right to remain silent, you immediately judge her guilty.

Unless Ms. Coulter is locked up in a pen, denied an attorney, and her habeas corpus rights suspended, give your BS a rest, OK.

Quoting Pope (Reply 38):
She's not cooperating with authorities. That tells me she has something to hide.

Did the same logic apply when HRC was being investigated with respect to Whitewater?

Helloooo?
Of course it does. HRC got bamboozled into a BS real estate deal by a couple of con artists. That's something HRC can't stand - that her intelligence be called into doubt. Gosh, can you imagine the headlines "New First Lady makes Lady Bird look like a genius."

Guess I misread the thread title

You just buy the first can of beans don't you. Why is Coulter automatically guilty of anything? A look at the others I named might give the same impression, but upon further review......

Prison would do the B*tch good if you ask me.

I didn't, but I could suggest some anger management therapists for you. You seem to be in need of one.

Maybe you should stop trying to read between the lines and stop trying to make a mountain out of a mole hill. You might also want to stop looking directly at the lasers as it is starting to cloud what judgement you have left to use.

Being controversial has been financially good for both of them. They are entertainers, nothing more, nothing less.

Quoting RichardPrice (Reply 27):
Things said in person or on the phone can be easily disputed, things placed in writing cannot.

It's pretty much standard these days for a prosecuting attorney to record every meeting they have with a suspect or their lawyers. I would be very surprised to find one that doesn't.

Besides, anyone should know these days that just because it's written, doesn't mean it can't be disputed.

I don't believe that's true. In your example, I believe that at a minimum Joe Blow would have to take a substantive step toward the completion of that act for criminal liability to attach unless John Doe is specially protected by statute (i.e. threatening the life of the President of the United States) or the threat is terroristic in nature.
Hypocrisy. It's the new black for liberals.

Pope, I'm not an expert on criminal law, so I guess you could be right, as well.  Smile I appreciate your expertise.
