Ann Coulter on Soccer

What do you think? Has Ann Coulter final gone off the deep end? Or was she never on it to begin with? Her recent column on soccer sounds like a spoof:

"Any growing interest in soccer can only be a sign of the nation's moral decay."

She could've pointed out that the US Portugal match got 18.2 million viewers, of whom 22 million were illegal immigrants.

Re: Ann Coulter on Soccer

(7) It's foreign. In fact, that's the precise reason the Times is constantly hectoring Americans to love soccer. One group of sports fans with whom soccer is not "catching on" at all, is African-Americans. They remain distinctly unimpressed by the fact that the French like it.


(8) Soccer is like the metric system, which liberals also adore because it's European. Naturally, the metric system emerged from the French Revolution, during the brief intervals when they weren't committing mass murder by guillotine.
It's going to be our fault

I don't even know who this woman is. Well, I didn't know, I read her wiki article. Massive stupidity has an entertainment value

Re: Ann Coulter on Soccer

Amidst all the mindbogglingly stupidity, political agenda, rampant xenophobia, vague sexism, and purposeful disinformation, this one wins the prize for me:

Individual achievement is not a big factor in soccer. (...) In soccer, the blame is dispersed and almost no one scores anyway. There are no heroes, no losers, no accountability
Sure, no scorers, no winners, no fumblers, no loser in association football. Of course not!

You almost get the impression she knows nothing about the sport, eh?

I like her. We should invite her to join TBBS. We could throw a party with some classic French cuisine, served up by a sneering waiter with a pencil thin moustache and a Gauloise expertly dangling from the lower lip.

The prospect of either personal humiliation or major injury is required to count as a sport.
Holy fucking crap, woman.

The woman is batshit crazy. I saw the article the other day and loved how absolutely ridiculous it was. Unfortunately, she's pretty famous and I'm sure she has more than enough followers believing every word she says.

Re: Ann Coulter on Soccer

I adore Ann for her ability to go off on a beautiful rant, but don't take her that seriously because she has mastered the art of the rant. We all do that, and enjoy it, and if taken to the next level its a work of art, comedy, or drama. Think of George Carlin's famous comparison of baseball and football, provided here for your convenience.
