I just finished a great little book, Guilty by Ann Coulter, it’s a political book, and it’s a conservative book, The whole basic idea of the book is how liberals twist the truth to fit there needs, how they play the victims, when in truth they are the problem.
I enjoyed the whole book, found it to be a nice easy and fun read, Ann has a way of stating thing in an off-handed ways, or if you like, she is a smart-ass, just my type of gal. So yah I chuckled my way thru the book and many times thought this would be a good blog, or that would be a good blog but this one point, at the very end of the book, this simple little statement sums it all up for me…
An extensive study conducted by professors at Smith College and George Washington University confirmed that most liberals exhibit a “narcissistic pathology” marked by “grandiosity, envy, a lack of empathy, illusion of personal perfection, and a sense of entitlement.” Liberals are twice as likely to value being popular as conservatives, whereas conservatives are more likely to value “making my parents proud”
WOW! Now that, to me, states it clear as can be…. Don’t believe me, just look around and see what group is always complaining about being picked on, liberals, what group always claims they don’t get a fair shake, liberals… and the list goes on…
Now, as with any given group, now everyone fits in to the generalities, but, well like the word states, generally most do. Why are most Hollywood stars liberals, well now you know….
Like I said, I loved that book, I would recommend that everyone get it and read it…
Guilty “Liberal “victims” and their assault on America by Ann Coulter
Dude the reason you enjoyed the book so much is because Ann Coulter is a base panderer – she makes a lot of money telling a portion of the population what they want to hear, facts be damned.
As far as this study of “liberals” goes I doubt very much if Ann has given a factual recounting of the results, or even that she is accurately describing the study itself.
It’s a fact that she is a poor researcher, and that her footnotes are frequently not even appropriate to the cite. But people that are so eager to divide everybody into liberal/conservative, left/right, are not the sharpest knives in the drawer, and probably don’t even care that Coulter is lying.
Why is it liberals must always resort to name calling and meanness? If you have not read the book it is hard to make any real statment concerning it.
But If you don’t like Ann and her style, than I would ask you to read the book “Who really Cares” by Arthur Brooks (http://www.arthurbrooks.net) he basicly states the same facts…
Oh, and don’t call me dude….
An Ann Coulter fan objecting to “name calling and meanness” – that’s rich.
Oh, and don’t call me liberal.
Good responce to me calling you a liberal, but facts are facts… I am not trying to divide anyone, but regardless to what you may think, there is a difference between a liberal and a conservitive, and that difference can be seen bright and clear at this moment in history withPresident Obama in charge. So I feel it is important to get the facts out. And once again don’t like the way Ann states them, that read several other books that all state the same simple facts, such as “Who really Cares” by Arthur Brooks (http://www.arthurbrooks.net), or dont read it and keep making statmens that have no ture meaning behind them.
I liked Ann’s book because it did speak to me and to what I personaly have witnessed with liberals, and how they always feel they should play the victom…. Poor poor liberals.. Get over it, and move on….
