The Beast is Red, Chapter 11: Pestilence Goes For The Big Laff




Posted at 4:05 by Mister Leonard Pierce

It’s become very fashionable lately to avoid any mention of Ann Coulter. Like the slow-wit down at the package liquor store who hoists it out of his trousers if you pitch him a quarter, attention only rewards her, this argument goes. Without our rage and affront to feed upon, it’s supposed that she will just dry up and blow away, a forever-forgotten well-born aberration, and not at all a ghost of our time.

Above: Actually knows some Asians, as well

Watching the lines of bad haircuts and suits filled with gangly limbs stretching halfway down Calvert Street, I’m not so sure. Ann Coulter is an entertainer the same way a schoolyard punchout is an entertainment, but she’s unbelievably popular. Every book she writes is a best-seller, every TV talk show appearance is must-see TV, and her popularity suggest not the depths to which people will sink to get attention, but the significant size of that portion of the vox pop that really is longing for a Jester of the Apocalypse, someone to keep ‘em laughing while the bombs fall and the oil runs out. She’s the Joey Bishop of genocide, and while we might just live long enough to find her a quaint and possibly baffling relic of the past, for the time being, her Rat Pack runs the country. Right into the dirt.

Ann’s intemperate punch lines got her disinvited from CPAC’s official schedule this year, or so the story goes. The whole thing smacks of a publicity stunt, given that she’s right here, hagged out and surrounded by adoring hate-groupies as always, broadcasting on a Town Hall feed from hotel premises instead of via jerry-rigged webcam from a burnt-out gas station in Southeast somewhere. Her introduction glows like a freshly scrubbed toilet, calling her a woman of “unbelievable courage” who “doesn’t let left-wing pseudo-intellectuals push her around”. Never has one New Canaanite braved so much as does the supernaturally pampered Ann Coulter; courage has been redefined many times at this conference — always to describe people who have never had to suffer through war or horror, and often to specifically exclude one particular candidate who has — but the word is stretched as far as the language can bear to accommodate her bony frame, which won’t pick up a cup of coffee that an immigrant touched.

Showing her keen grasp of the fundamentals of comedy, Coulter starts her performance with a call-back to an earlier episode: Hillary’s campaign can’t use “I Am Woman” as its theme song, because it’s already taken by John Edwards. This is the point at which I’d normally say “Why doesn’t she just come right out and call John Edwards a faggot?”, but goddamned if she’s not ahead of the curve on that one. She does prove me wrong by not calling Barack Obama (or, as she puts it, “B. Hussein Obama”) a nigger, but she does say that his greatest accomplishment was being born half-black, and if he wasn’t, he wouldn’t be where he is today. This gets big cheers, being a familiar argument to anyone born after the passage of the Civil Rights Act: no darky can accomplish anything on his own. Darky do well, darky owes it all to massa. Massa feel guilty, yes sah, else ways darky ain’t do shit. B. Hussein, in Ann’s thoroughly-modern-Millie p.o.v., simply does not know his place. (The racial sensitivity doesn’t end there: later in the act, Ann says she could help Hillary Clinton with her fake accent, because “I actually know some black people.” No doubt: there’s the boy who parks her car, the boy who opens the door to her building, the boy who hands her a towel down at the health club…)

Before she launches into her half-hour invective against John McCain — who is apparently slightly to the left of Ward Churchill — she gets off a couple of pieces of vintage Ann Coulter shock-out-with-your-cock-out: her reaction to simultaneous terror attacks on two cities would depend on which two cities. Liberals hounded poor Rudy Giuliani because he supported “dripping water down their noses”. Comparing Hillary to Stalin is an insult to Stalin. It’s all very funny, and the YIFfies laugh clubbily except for a few awkward silences when they don’t get the joke because it has a sub-clause in it. Still, the funniest moment from where I’m sitting (hunched over between two nearly-abandoned booths in the Exhibit Hall) is her delivery of a line she apparently meant to be serious: speaking of the Republican Party, she says, “Conniving is not our strong point. Honor is our strong point.”

At one point, Ann confuses the crowd by busting out the word “contumacious”, and her blackleg dad smiles from the great beyond knowing all that tuition money for Cornell wasn’t wasted. But right up until the end of her performance, she tips the game: when she hits a particularly thorny passage, when she’s about to say or has just said something that would make any decent member of society upend a gallon of paint over her head, the person who laughs loudest at her joke is Ann Coulter. That’ll be the way for her until no one’s laughing anymore.

    I dunno.

    But there’s a burnout threshold, and it’s starting to take hold.

    No, Derek, not around the writing. Around the subject.

    The hatred, the subtext, the violence, the divisiveness. How can it be?

    What can it contribute. What do they REALLY want?

    I just guess I don’t want to live in a world with people like this.

    I want people to try to find a way to live together, not find a reason to hate or kill one another.

    What contribution comes with the dogwhistle? The code word.

    What is it that unites us as Americans?

    What is it that’s worth fighting for?

    Interesting. Your take on Coulter is similar to mine. She’s not stupid, she’s not crazy. She is a talented comedian and effective emotional bully who quite honestly would like to see much of the population in concentration camps. She’s still dangerous.

    I actually take heart that the only thing the wingnuts can come up with to attack Obama is his name*, and that he’s not white. That’s the best they got. He must scare the piss out out of them, maybe even more then the wogs (with their numerous WMDs) do.

    *Did you know that it reminiscent of Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden?! Isn’t that CRAZY?!? I sure hope he’s not actually a terrorist in disguise! But with a name that’s so similar, one can’t help but wonder…

    I wouldn’t call her a talented comedian. She gets laughs from borderline psychotics — that doesn’t mean she’s actually funny. But she does indeed have a peculiar talent for effectively entertaining psychos.

    Some of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the US have all-white staff. Trust me.

    My wife used to work with one asshole who lived in a neighborhood where all the garbagemen were white in starch white uniforms that drove around in golf carts on the side streets, and taking them to the dump truck on the main street (because I guess a dump truck would be unsightly going next to your house). They would even go into your garage to take the cans, so you don’t have to hurt your precious hands hauling them to the curb. I swear, there wasn’t a person of color in that neighborhood. Most surreal fucking thing ever.

Please lay off the vicodin and vodka and get your hands on some Naked smoothies, fresh fruit and whole grain bread. Strengthen yourself, man.

    or borax-from-your (massive)-Thorax.

    After reading her eulogy for her dad, she no longer puzzles me. Her Electra complex swallows galaxies. Whatever cruel thing can bring a smile to Daddy-the-labor-hating-lawyer’s face is what she’s going to say. I mean, the ONLY words she quotes him saying to her were that she wasn’t fully dressed– her miniskirt, she is bragging to us, aroused her father. Her “real man” desired her, you understand.

    But she will never quite get the reassurance she needs, so she will keep up with the insane remarks to get noticed by the distant, gruff dad up in heaven (where all the Pinkerton guards and corporate lawyers laugh about the strikers’ skulls they cracked). All of her “greatest hits” make perfect sense once you realize they are desperate attempts at seduction, not political persuasion.

    I was just thinking about this when I was driving home, and there was a story on the radio about Mukasey and the waterboarding.

    I flashed to the funny ha-ha waterboarding CIA Swim Team T-shirts Leonard said the CPAC kiddies were selling.

    And I thought – what is it about these people that makes them turn death, fear, pain, torture, into a big goddam joke?

    And I thought, is there an equivalent on the other side? Something where my ideology, in my opposition to a position to someone else, would make me laugh or joke or minimize some horror.

    Funny T-shirts about almost drowning people? Remember the Purple Heart band-aids? Think of all the partying Frat Boys who whoop and drink and holler outside prisons on the eve of someone’s execution.

    If the planets were aligned differently, and it was the Left that opposed abortion, and the Right that was Pro-Choice, you would see young conservatives selling novelty Barbeque aprons that had printed upon them the legend “Fetus! It’s the other White Meat!”

    While this has been another edition of What Mikey Said, I’d like to add my voice to the chorus admiring our intrepid correspondent. How he can stand that gang-assault on human decency, even with the aid of a truly impressive pharmacopia, escapes my imagination.

    Perhaps the Wingnut Welfare Wurlitzer can splurge the last of its cash, send a whole bunch of us to the next event, and secretly record us there. Goldberg’s liberal fascist fantasy could get a boost from our mutterings. After all, no matter how liberal we are, eventually we’ll crack. Once we spend several whole days hearing acres of drooping, pasty flesh joyfully gang-rape all meaning from noble words like “dignity”, “honor”, “courage”, “sacrifice”, “patriotism”, “bravery”, “morality”, &c., some of us will start audibly fantasizing about mass murder.

And there are way, way, way too many women in the blogosphere who, when they dare to have an opinioin, get trolls who threaten them wtih, or suggest they should be, rape(d). Even AC’s calls for violence don’t justify it: if such calls for violence are wrong, then they’re wrong.

    And, yes, let me reiterate, I despise AC and her ilk.

    Of course he does. And not just because the American people have shown they will let someone like the leaping gnome who currently holds the White House get anywhere close to the presidency.

    There are more than enough confused, uninformed voters out there who will pull the lever for McCain because he was a war hero, or is old, or is slightly more pro-environment than the typical Republican, for him to think he has a puncher’s chance.

    In fairness to John O, Coulter has repeatedly raped the concepts of decency, civility, and good taste in public and on a daily basis for 10 years or more. So in the more perfect world Coulter herself claims she longs for, i.e. an eye for an eye, this punishment would in fact fit her many crimes against humanity.

    AC deserves nothing but scorn. And she has publicly raped every concept of decency and morality for a long time.

    The repetition of “Barack Hussein Obama” by assorted wingnuts has had, I think, the unintended effect of weakening whatever shock factor the man’s middle name might have had, rather than strengthening it. Saddam’s dead, and he has been for a while now; bin Laden has carefully been pushed to the back burner by the Administration. The more the Right repeats the “B. Hussein Obama/Osama” bushwah, the more remote the connection to The Bad Guys becomes.

    Go for it, wingnuts! Pay no attention to the law of unintended consequences!

    Just because I’m curious, did a comment get axed?

    Originally, on the first comment, John O described how he would have his way with Ann Coulter, violently. Frankly, I’m happy the comment was deleted.

    Most entertaining, sir, I commend you and admire your courage to walk amongst the bizarros. I find it ironic to realize the last time I was in the Omni Shoreham was in ’85 for a World Convention of Narcotics Anonymous. I also realize that, although I have recovered to a great degree, I do not fear prison (again). Accounts like yours force me to ponder of the rationalizations that the abortion doctor killers must use to justify their murderous activities, and how this sort of rationalization of rational thought permeates the neocon hater brigade (aka “The Courageous Visionaries”). That is why I didn’t drive down to the Omni and observe the Carnival of the Courageous up close and personal- I just might relapse on my sociopathic addiction- again. I don’t want to make the front page of the newspaper- again. Love ya, man, keep comin’ back, as I tell my friends. Oh yeah, about the dope and booze, you seem normal- this appears to be a temporary medical necessity- to cope with a severe and transient psychological trauma- see, I knew that there could be better living through chemistry! Oh, and another thing, heroin IS the strongest thing you can buy without a prescription. Just be careful, ok?

    Is that the Walmart suit? It is SOLID. Farah’s mustachios pale in comparison.

    Tigrismus — nah, man, I gave up on the Wal-Mart suits after Day 2. That there is an ostrich-leather number I picked up in Mexico a while back.

    Spencer — sorry to disappoint.

    Mr. Wu — HANG DAI!

    but she does say that his greatest accomplishment was being born half-black, and if he wasn’t, he wouldn’t be where he is today.

    Mr. Pierce, you are brave and sane, so your ears aren’t equipped to hear the dog whistle: ZOMG! Brown men having their way with the fair flower of white womanhood!!! Bark bark bark snap growl yip!!!!

    That one deserved to be axed.

    I’m sorry, everyone. It was a moment of rage.

    Still, she’s a very bad example of a human being.

    Are all of you morons or something?

    How many times are you going to fall for the radical right’s rope a dope crap?

    This is WAAAAAYYYY too organized, from the top to the bottom, and doesn’t match up with the voting patterns.

    This is talking points.

    This is strategy.

    This is simply the same old Fred Phelps strategy on a larger scale.

    For those not in the know, if you are a radical right winger, like Fallwell (may he rot in Hell), or even Huckabee now (the other day), you simply call old Freddie and cut a deal for him to come protest you, in order to make you look a bit more mainstream.

    Same old tricks. This is just on a larger scale. The radical right has been pushing the idea of McCain for the past decade and a half, and yet now, they all abandon him? I for one don’t buy this, and am chalking it up as a strategic move to make his candidacy look more mainstream, BECAUSE AMERICA IS SICK AND FUCKING TIRED OF RADICAL JIHADIST CHRISTIAN ASSHOLES WHO WANT TO START ARMAGEDDON, even though the entire Republican Party is composed of such people from the top to the bottom.

    Don’t fall for the rope-a-dope. Just like Ali kicked Foreman’s ass in Zaire, the RADICAL JIHADIST CHRISTIAN ASSHOLES WHO WANT TO START ARMAGEDDON also can still kick our ass if we fall for their bullshit pretending not to support the man promising to give them ARMAGEDDON.

    I might add, that this is the same man who sold America down the drain in Hanoi, and became Ho Chi Minh’s go-to guy whenever he needed a happy faced POW to put in front of the foreign media and whom would gladly badmouth America to the enemy. McCain is a TRAITOR! McCain was Ho Chi Minh’s sock puppet! Uncle Ho would shove his arm up McCain’s ass, and McCain would sing any song they wanted him to sing to the foreign press!

    Anyhow, don’t let the Traitorous Christians who want to replace America with a Christo-Fascist Iran-like government fool you one bit. THESE PEOPLE LOVE MCCAIN BECAUSE HE’LL GIVE THEM ARMAGEDDON!

    And ARMAGEDDON means the end of the United States Government, and the beginning of Christo-Fascist Theocracy!

    Well…uh…yes, I believe that to be the case, EnderW…but jeez and all.

    I thought MY (deleted) post was mad.

    Interesting, no, the line that divides OK from unacceptable? Think Shuster and Matthews.

    Personally, I don’t think I’m a moron. I do think I vote with about 50,000,000 of them, though.

    I hope Saul Booger Ruppert studies Ender W’s spiel. That is what a real troll looks like.

    It’s OK. I have moments of white hot rage as well. But the women reading the thread don’t deserve to feel the brunt.

    It’s convenient if you live near a women’s clinic that’s being picketed by Anti-Choice Theocrat thugs. When the rage hits you hard, you can just drop a taped-up roll of nickels in your jacket pocket and go down there and have a “discussion” with them.

    That, or just beat the hell out of the mailbox again with a baseball bat…

    That’s a good idea, but I am not tough. So unfortunately when I get rage, it just looks ridiculous. I don’t know, maybe I will find a good use for it like that someday.
