What does a reasonable conservative say about Ann Coulter?
Initially, my comment was that Miss Coulter is unnecessarily harsh in her comments. I think you can make the same points that Miss Coulter makes without being as vitriolic as she is.
However, I find that while I don’t really like or subscribe to the rhetoric she uses, I agree with most of her perspectives. I understand what I think is her motivation: the Left is absurdly, unapologetically crass and shamelessly nasty in its approach to political discourse; has no principles that cannot be tossed aside in the pursuit of political expedience; and says things as harsh or harsher than Ann Coulter every day of the world. Having such a low standard set by the opposition, why shouldn’t members of the Right indulge themselves in similar rhetoric if they want to?
Maybe the Left doesn’t like tasting its own medicine, or perhaps it only sees Ann Coulter’s rhetoric as unacceptable, and see its own venomous language as okay. Who knows? But, as they say, “what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.”
So Lefties, get over it.
