happy day of the devil!

I know, I know, it's so worn out, so over commercialized. But it's still kind of cool. Here's a funny article about Satan selling out. I'm going to post an exerpt here, only because it goes along with my below commentary about that crazy bitch Ann Coulter.

6. Ann Coulter

Isn’t it cute how her new book is titled “Godless”? And her publisher is calling the release date a coincidence. Sure, that’s true. Every inflammatory thing conservative writer Ann Coulter says is true, you know. If it weren’t, why would she say it? If she names her book “Godless” and says it’s her message, then everyone who doesn’t swallow her nonsense as gospel must be godless, just like she says.

In my rich fantasy life I envision her being kidnapped and taken on tour with Deicide, where they make her work the T-shirt and sticker table. And I could go for the easy joke here and call her the Antichrist — I won’t be the only left-wing American citizen doing that — but it would be as tired as using Satan’s name to sell books that reduce political discourse to name-calling and, um, demonizing the people who disagree. I will say, though, that there’s a space for her on the BFF list now that David Lee Roth’s been evicted.

The Deicide part is priceless. I'd love to see her reaction to their music. Did anyone happen to catch her on the Today Show this morning? It was ridiculous. Even Matt Lauer was frustrated, and I think shocked at her insane opinions and dumb book. Is she anorexic, by the way? She's WAY too skinny and gross. I didn't know much about her, but the minute her interview was over, wondered how she even got to be on the Today show. I guess because of controversy. Because nothing she said made a shred of sense, or had any merit whatsoever. I guess I can just lump her into a category with Pat Robertson. That seems about right.

Anyway, I went looking for information about her, and found these priceless quotations. Enjoy!

'The ethic of conservation is the explicit abnegation of man's dominion over the Earth. The lower species are here for our use. God said so: Go forth, be fruitful, multiply, and rape the planet — it's yours. That's our job: drilling, mining and stripping. Sweaters are the anti-Biblical view. Big gas-guzzling cars with phones and CD players and wet bars — that's the Biblical view.'

'I have to say I'm all for public flogging. One type of criminal that a public humiliation might work particularly well with are the juvenile delinquents, a lot of whom consider it a badge of honor to be sent to juvenile detention. And it might not be such a cool thing in the 'hood to be flogged publicly.' — MSNBC March 22, 1997

'It would be a much better country if women did not vote. That is simply a fact. In fact, in every presidential election since 1950 — except Goldwater in '64 — the Republican would have won, if only the men had voted.'

'Liberals hate America, they hate flag-wavers, they hate abortion opponents, they hate all religions except Islam, post 9/11. Even Islamic terrorists don't hate America like liberals do. They don't have the energy. If they had that much energy, they'd have indoor plumbing by now.' — (from Slander, pp. 5–6; published June 2002)

'The Times was rushing to assure its readers that 'prominent Islamic scholars and theologians in the West say unequivocally that nothing in Islam countenances the Sept. 11 actions.' (That's if you set aside Muhammad's many specific instructions to kill nonbelievers whenever possible).' — How to Talk to a Liberal, 2004.

'In the history of the nation, there has never been a political party so ridiculous as today's Democrats. It's as if all the brain-damaged people in America got together and formed a voting bloc.' — Jan 12, 2006

'One [cartoon] showed Muhammad turning away suicide bombers from the gates of heaven, saying 'Stop, stop — we ran out of virgins!' — which I believe was a commentary on Muslims' predilection for violence. Another was a cartoon of Muhammad with horns, which I believe was a commentary on Muslims' predilection for violence. The third showed Muhammad with a turban in the shape of a bomb, which I believe was an expression of post-industrial ennui in a secular — oops, no, wait: It was more of a commentary on Muslims' predilection for violence ... Muslims are the only people who make feminists seem laid-back.' — February 8, 2006

'Perhaps we could put aside our national, ongoing, post-9/11 Muslim butt-kissing contest and get on with the business at hand: Bombing Syria back to the stone age and then permanently disarming Iran.' — February 15, 2006

'I'd build a wall. In fact, I'd hire illegal immigrants to build the wall. And throw out the illegals who are here. [...] It's cheap labor.' — April 14, 2006

Wow, she's stupid. Who possibly takes her seriously? Rape the planet? Come on. Methinks the Republicans need to reel her back in to the dungeon and pray she doesn't get too much media attention.

6-6-06. This is fun, but in a make-fun-of-the-superstitious-people kind of way. Of course, there's no such thing as gods, demons, angels, ghosts, et cetera.
