Coulter heckled ... the REST of the story
Drudge is reporting that clinically insane whack-job Ann Coulter was interrupted by hecklers during a speaking engagement last night at KU. But little Mattie is not telling us the whole story. My best friend's daughter is a sophomore at Kansas. She called her dad after the event and he immediately phoned me. Apparently what sent Coulter into a full-bore, spittle-flecked, incoherent rage was being asked, "So, Annie, what's actually larger, your Adam's apple or your dick?" My wife and kids slept through the ringing phone, but my ensuing laughter woke the entire house.

"I think there are some people in the audience who meant to be at the sexual reorientation class down the hall," Coulter said, in response to the heckling.

39. That is funny,
Unless you are or know a real life transsexual like I do. I bet my friend will think this is just as funny as the right wings attacks on Janet Reno when they were yucking it up about her really being a man.
Sorry if I pissed anyone off but, it bothers me when people are so insensitive to people who they are supposed to be fighting for.

49. Turn your irony meter back on, please
You fail to see the context.

This is no different than those who say Bob Barr, no friend to the darker complexioned amongst us, has a slave or two in his ancestry. And that comment I've heard from several of his former constituents who are of African descent.

The going after Reno was meanness for meanness' sake simply because Reno never advocated the abrogation of civil rights for transgendered people. In contrast, Ann the Mann would cheerfully line up your friend, and all other transsexuals, and happily shoot them and declare it a Federal holiday.

she read the post and told me she was just as offended by this as she was by the right wing nut jobs who said this about Janet Reno. She does not like being compared to coulter and having people making a joke out of being a trans gender. To her, the context does not matter.

A bashing good time
Controversial speaker criticizes liberals amidst yelling from Lied Center crowd

By Jason Shaad Published: Wednesday, March 30, 2005

After several people continued to haggle her during her speech last night in the Lied Center, Ann Coulter made a call for help. Im not going to keep talking if people keep yelling, said Coulter, a conservative political commentator and best-selling author. If you see someone yelling, I want the College Republicans to get up and kick them out.

:nopity:

A crowd of people in the front rows got up, walked up the aisles, and tried to get a few of the people yelling to leave. Lied Center personnel and security stepped in and told the students who were yelling that they needed to leave or quietly wait until the end of the speech to ask questions. About 1,800 people attended Coulters speech, which was part of the Vickers Memorial Lecture Series.

Coulter criticized Democrats and liberals throughout her speech, joking that Democrats exaggerated trivial matters. I think the Democrats should make SpongeBob the mascot of their party, Coulter said. They were offended that a cartoon character was being slandered, while Bush was being criticized about the war.

Coulter said Democrats complained too much about the presidential election, the war in Iraq and 9/11. Liberals are always complaining about being repressed, Coulter said. I say lets do it. Lets repress them. We can burn their books and repress their ideas and damage the ozone at the same time, she joked.

All night Coulter spoke over muffled yells from the audience. Sometimes the yells were stifled by applause from other members of the audience. Other times Coulter just spoke over the hagglers. One woman kept shouting questions from the back of the auditorium. After refusing to be quiet, a crowd official removed the person. The audience burst into applause at her removal.

Students had mixed responses to Coulters speech. I thought she was catty and nitpicky, said Marta Buechler, St. Louis sophomore. And that is what she accuses liberals of doing anyway. Bianca Babcock, Lawrence freshman, said she agreed with everything Coulter said.

She was really good, Babcock said. She is not afraid to say anything and she has got the sharpest tongue ever.

Coulter did not save her biting wit for her speech only. She criticized some peoples questions as much as she did Democrats.

When one student interrupted her speech with a question, What about weapons of mass destruction?, Coulter responded, Im Ann Coulter, not President Bush. Youre even stupider than I thought.

Coulters comments drew laughs from much of the crowd, but they werent a hit with everyone. Even some people who respected her had mixed feelings.

Buechler said she didnt have any preconceptions about Coulter before the speech because she didnt know much about her. Buechler said people didnt have to agree with someone to respect their opinions.

But she was cutting people off, Buechler said. She wasnt even letting people clarify their questions.

Others thought the people shouting questions disrupted the event.

If they were so distraught about what she was saying, they could get up and leave, said Sara Garlick, Sanford, Maine, junior. When she wasnt interrupted, it was wonderful.

At the end of her speech, Coulter received a standing ovation.

She received $25,000 for her appearance. The money came from the Vickers endowment fund, said Toni Dixon, director of communications for the School of Business. The Vickers family selected Coulter for the lecture.

What do you think of Ann Coulter?

I love her. I think she is funny as hell. She tells it like it is and doesnt hold anything back.

-Heather Shinogle, Olathe senior

I love Ann Coulter. I think she is one of the three most beautiful women in politics. I think she is gorgeous.

-Tyler Robinson, North Platte, Neb., senior

I disagree with almost all of her political beliefs. It is almost spiteful toward the other side. She is extremely antagonistic, even condescending. Im prepared to be entertained more than anything.

-Nick Yaghmour, Schaumburg, Ill., junior

I hate her. I dont agree with her at all. I read her book and I didnt agree with her idea of converting the Middle East to Christianity. I came for a good laugh.

-Sean Wake, St. Charles, Ill., freshman

54. We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to..


This photo appears on the front page of The University Daily Kansan, under the headline "A bashing good time", but there is no caption.

I believe the banner reads "We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity".

Apparently it is the goon squad Coulter called on when "it" said "If you see someone yelling, I want the College Republicans to get up and kick them out.

Conservative author draws audiences from both parties

By Jason Shaad Published: Tuesday, March 29, 2005

Ann Coulter wasnt on a Nickelodeon game show the last time she had pies thrown at her. She was speaking to students on a college campus. Two students threw pies at Coulter in October while she spoke at the University of Arizona in Tucson, according to The Arizona Daily Wildcat, the universitys student newspaper. One student missed; the other hit part of Coulters shoulder. Both were arrested afterwards.

Coulter, a conservative political commentator and best-selling author, will lecture at 7 p.m. tonight in the Lied Center for the Vickers Memorial Lecture Series. The series purpose is to provide an open and constructive forum for critical thinking, dialogue and debate, said Toni Dixon, director of communications for the School of Business. The Vickers family selected Coulter for the series. J.A. Vickers, Sr. was a 1916 graduate of the University and founded Vickers Patroleum Co. in Wichita. His son Robert Vickers, Sr. also supported the lecture series.

Coulter is a lawyer and has appeared on numerous talk shows. She also wrote The New York Times best-seller Slander: Liberal Lies about the American Right. Some students are lining up ahead of time in anticipation of her lecture. Members of the KU College Republicans plan to show up early and get good seats for the event. Josh Steward, chairman of the College Republicans, invited members to show up at 5 p.m. and eat pizza while they wait in line.

Steward said Coulter was a controversial person and that many people on campus disliked her. A lot of people on campus hate conservatives, so that is strike one, Steward said. And if youre a woman or a minority, and prominent in politics, then some people dislike you more because you dont fit their stereotype, so that is strike two. Lastly, she speaks her mind strike three. People get upset if you dont say what they want to hear. Coulter definitely strikes out for many people, Steward said. He said he had never heard Coulter speak before and was curious to know what she would talk about. I hope she makes a few good political points instead of just attacks, Steward said.

Apparently the rethugs train their young how to embezzel very early. Josh Steward took over the College Republicans from one Justin McFarland, who took $1300 from the groups bank account.

College Republicans revise group policies
Group increases regulations on money spending

By Jason Shaad Published: Thursday, February 3, 2005

The KU College Republicans are building on the past and making improvements after an internal dispute in November. The former chairman of the KU College Republicans has repaid the group for monies he took from the groups bank account without approval last fall. The group set a March 31 deadline for Justin McFarland to repay $1,300 that he took from the groups bank account to reimburse himself for group-related travel expenses and to fund future group activities.

McFarland, who resigned in November and is no longer active with the group, fully repaid the money by mid-December, shortly after the week of finals, Josh Steward, College Republicans chairman, said. I know Justin really well, and I knew from the start that it wasnt to sabotage the group, Steward said. He was being careless, but he didnt have bad intentions. As a result of the situation, the group is restructuring its policies on money spending.

Before there were basically no rules, Steward said. We had a checking account. Beyond that, you needed a receipt for expenses, and that was it. Steward said the group would now require prior approval for expenditures of more than $50. He said the treasurer would be responsible for all checks and that the groups executive board would vote on any reimbursements. The group will also keep better records of checks and receipts, Steward said.

Most of these changes will be integrated into the groups bylaws. Steward said the group would pass a new constitution at its next meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 8 and would work on passing bylaws after that. Reba Good, College Republicans public relations coordinator, said the new implementations would ensure that the group continued to grow from the experience. Another improvement for executive board members would be the development of continuity folders, Good said. These folders will include information on what operations worked and did not work in the past. They would also keep people from repeating the same mistakes or wasting time, Good said. Good said she did not resent McFarland for his actions.

:wtf:

85. He got her! Because, she does have a big Adam's apple.
And the reference to 'dick' means she looks manly. So. you see, the heckler wins the argument.
What was the argument?
