My Island II: A New Member

For those of you that missed my explanation My Island is a place where I send people that irritate me so badly by their presence that they need to be isolated in a place where they can do the least harm to the public. If someone REALLY pisses me off I am known to say, "They better be careful or they are going to My Island." I don't send them there automatically, there is a process and I am very picky about who I scoop out of the rest of the population's gene pool.
So far I have sent:
Britney Spears
Amy Winehouse
Lindsay Lohan
Rick Santorum

Flying stand-by:
Jamie Lynn Spears

Today, I am sending another person. She should have been in the original set but alas, I had forgotten about her for a brief moment when she wasn't trying to hog the political spotlight with her extremest right-wing rantings. She is:

Ann Coulter

This woman used to frighten me because of the filth that spewed from her mouth but with titles for her books such as:

If Democrats Had Any Brains They'd Be Republicans
Godless: The Church of Liberalism
How to Talk to a Liberal If You Must

Well, they really just show that she is a complete fool and thoroughly unimaginative. I mean, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that if you dye your hair (badly), starve yourself and wear sexy clothing on a book cover, drooling men are going to pick it up. She actually thinks that her message is getting through to people because of her book sales. Here are some lovely comments by Ann as gathered by Wikipedia:
On October 8, 2007, Coulter ignited yet more controversy when she was quoted as saying that Jews should be "perfected" into Christians. She was talking about Republicans with Donny Deutsch, a Jewish CNBC talk-show host, and implied that she considered Christianity a virtue. Deutsch asked her, "It would be better if we were all Christian?", to which Coulter replied "Yes". Deutsch asked her, "We should all be Christian?", and got the same response, with an invitation to come to church. Later on, Coulter said, "we just want Jews to be perfected, as they say", saying that this was what Christianity was, and she compared the 'New Testament to Federal Express. Further, Coulter said that Christians considered themselves to be perfected Jews. Deutsch implied that this was an anti-Semitic remark, but Coulter said she didn't consider it to be a hateful comment.[62]

...about 9/11 Widows
These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzis. These self-obsessed women seemed genuinely unaware that 9/11 was an attack on our nation and acted as if the terrorist attacks happened only to them. ... I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much ... the Democrat ratpack gals endorsed John Kerry for president ... cutting campaign commercials... how do we know their husbands weren't planning to divorce these harpies? Now that their shelf life is dwindling, they'd better hurry up and appear in Playboy.[88]

...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.

So Ann, your idiocy and complete lack of knowledge about the world around and your continuous misinterpretation of what you don't know you has earned you a trip to My Island. You are a hateful person and the female equivalent to Dorian Grey. I am sure you and Rick will get along well. Maybe you and Brit can dye each other's hair. I'll send some peroxide in the next supply drop. She seems to know a little more about it than you.

Wow - Ann Coulter really doesn't seem to take the whole "melting pot" idea to heart, does she?

asthmagirl said...

Thanks for getting her out of the mainstream. I hope she can fish. There's no chance of her getting voted off the island is there?

Candid Carrie said...

I remember her talking about the widows. I was furious. I have nothing else to add, you did a great job of making her look stupid. My work here is done.

P.S. How is P's face?

Nilsa S. said...

Are you willing to open your island to others? Because I think it's a fabulous idea and there are a host of people I'd like to add.

Hey - just stumbled upon your blog & read back a few weeks. My grandparents used to live on Scargo Hill Road. Love the photographs.
And Ann Coulter? Totally needs to go away. Thanks for taking care of that for us.

Rph Mommy said...

She's awful. Everytime she opens her mouth I cringe.

my2boyz said...

Can i nonimate Brett Farve for your island? He is geting n my nerves as much as Ann does!

A.C. said...

Yay! I need an island to banish people to. It seems so cathartic. I'd send Ann Coulter first.

I agree with your other choices as well. I'm so sick of seeing Amy Winehouse's stick-like dying body gracing the covers of magazines. Maybe if we didn't give her so much attention for being a junkie, she'd stop seeking it.

Middle Aged woman said...

I see this island quickly becoming overpopulated.

J'Ollie Primitives said...

whoa, Nellie. If you don't mind a little decorating advice for Your Island I would strongly recommend a large rock so Ann Coulter can crawl back under it.

I remember her horrible comments about the 9/11 widows.I was and am convinced that she took things WAY out of proportion and portayed them way out of context.

Now that's a good idea - your own intellectual abandonment island for idiots! I had not heard of the latest woman you have bagged and tagged.

Now then, whilst I totally agree with you that her views seem to make her a bit of a vapid tart, there is a logic to her argument ref' religion. In no way do I endorse what she says or agree with it, I think she is an effing lunatic, but you can see how she might arrive at her twisted lunacy, given that Christianity came out of Judaism as the OT into the New T. No way would I say all Jews need to be Christians to be whole because all faiths have the right to coexist (and as you know I enjoy my faith as a regualr church atendee), but I can see the path her argument has taken, albeit a very warped (and incredibly wrong ) one. She still sounds a misguided but good candidate for export. I think she does not 'get' Faith and is rather a bitch!

Mom2FiveBratz said...

I dont see Jamie-Lynn being too bad, even considering her age.
I would send Elizabeth from The View, 50 Cent, and Judge Judy.

Keetha said...

Oh, this is GENUIS. I totally need to get an island, too!

Muffy Willowbrook said...

Why isn't Paris Hilton on your island? She bugs.

Dirty White boy said...

Amy Whineshouse will kill herself before she gets to any island.

Cherlyn said...

Can I send a couple of ex-boyfriends and an ex-husband to your island? Pretty please?

Candid Carrie said...

Is your new island located before hell or after hell? Because if it is before hell I think you might be getting a visit from my ex-husband ... he's headed that direction ;)

Dear Scargosun, I love to come over here and shoot my mouth off about him! Thanks for having me!

And we need another picture of Ps face. I mean P's face. Ps face doesn't look right at all.

Jennifer said...

I like your list and agree w/ it. I think I might keep Amy Winehouse around for pure entertainment value though. Her performances are strangely mesmerizing and her off-stage antics are like a car wreck--even though you want to, you can't look away!

Shelby said...

So she's a decendent of Hilter, yeah?

The world is full of idiots...but lucky for us, Survival of the Fittest kills them off!


kccat said...

Yes, she definately should have been the first to be sent to the island. In fact, I think she has been rewarded with some kind of free membership to the island right? Can we send McCain too?
You may have just inspired me to create my own island. Stay tuned.
