HUMAN EVENTS Editor Jed Babbin spoke with Ann Coulter about her new book, “If Democrats Had Any Brains, They’d be Republicans.”
JB: I’ve lost count of the number of times the liberals pronounced your career’s demise over something you said. This new book seems to put them all together, reaching critical mass. If this were enriched uranium, you’d be getting a visit from Mohammed el-Baradei. If Katie Couric reads it, will her head explode?
AC: LET’S JUST SAY THAT READING MY NEW BOOK WILL HELP KATIE GET READY FOR HER NEXT VIDEOTAPED COLONOSCOPY.
JB: Ok, ‘fess up: when was the last time you actually talked to a liberal and enjoyed it? What did you say?
AC: MY LAST PLEASANT EXCHANGE WITH A LIBERAL ENDED AS FOLLOWS: “THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR VIEWS ON PRESIDENT BUSH AND HITLER BEING THE SAME PERSON. NOW, COULD I PLEASE HAVE MY MOCHA GRANDE LATTE?”
JB: We’re all so bored with these candidate debates. They seem pointless. If you were the moderator of the next Democrat debate, what’s the first question you’d ask?
AC: WHO’S THAT SHORT GUY WITH THE BIG EARS STANDING NEXT TO JOE BIDEN?
JB: Back to the book. You poke fun at liberals because they are usually impervious to facts. True enough. But how can you account for Joe Biden who — at least on Iraq — seems to be fighting his inner demons and actually looking at what’s going on?
AC: IF BY “ACTUALLY LOOKING AT WHAT’S GOING ON” YOU MEAN JOE BIDEN’S DEMAND THAT WE IMPERIALISTICALLY DIVIDE IRAQ INTO THREE SECTORS, EACH OF WHICH WOULD BE FIERCELY AND IMMEDIATELY SET UPON BY ITS RESPECTIVE NEIGHBORS — WELL I SUPPOSE THAT’S ONE WAY TO RESOLVE THE SITUATION. IT’S JUST NOT A PARTICULARLY GOOD ONE. SOMETIMES NO PLAN IS BETTER THAN A REALLY, REALLY BAD PLAN.
JB: If there’s one line you could pick out of the book to be the bumper sticker for a winning Republican candidate in ’08, what would it be?
AC: INVADE THEIR COUNTRIES, KILL THEIR LEADERS AND CONVERT THEM TO CHRISTIANITY.
