Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Uttering lines that send liberals into paroxysms of rage, otherwise known as 'citing facts, ' is the spice of life. When I see the hot spittle flying from their mouths and the veins bulging and pulsing above their eyes, well, that's when I feel truly alive.

So begins If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans, Ann Coulter's funniest, most devastating, and, yes, most outrageous book to date.

Coulter has become the brightest star in the conservative firmament thanks to her razor-sharp reasoning and biting wit. Of course, practically any time she opens her mouth, liberal elites denounce Ann, insisting that She's gone too far and hopefully predicting that this time it will bring a crashing end to her career.

Now you can read all the quotes that have so outraged her enemies and so delighted her legions of fans. More than just the definitive collection of Coulterisms, If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans includes dozens of brand-new commentaries written by Coulter and hundreds of never-before-published quotations. This is Ann at her best, covering every topic from A to Z. Here you'll read Coulter's take on:

  • Her politics: "As far as I'm concerned, I'm a middle-of-the-road moderate and the rest of you are crazy."
  • Hillary Clinton: "Hillary wants to be the first woman president, which would also make her the first woman in a Clinton administration to sit behind the desk in the Oval Office instead of under it."
  • The environment: "God gave us the earth. We have dominion over the plants, the animals, the trees. God said, 'Earth is yours. Take it. Rape it. It's yours.'"
  • Religion: "It's become increasingly difficult to distinguish the pronouncements of the Episcopal Church from the latest Madonna video."
  • Global warming: "The temperature of the planet has increased about one degree Fahrenheit in the last century. So imagine a summer afternoon when it's 63 degrees and the next thing you know it's...64 degrees. Ahhhh! Run for your lives, everybody Women and children first."
  • Gun control: "Mass murderers apparently can't read, since they are constantly shooting up 'gun-free zones.'"
  • Bill Clinton: "Bill Clinton's library is the first one to ever feature an Adults Only section."
  • Illegal aliens: "I am the illegal alien of commentary. I will do the jokes that no one else will do."
If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans is a must-have for anyone who loves (or loves to hate) Ann Coulter.

Book News Annotation:

Right-wing provocateur Coulter clearly delights in angering liberals with outré statements that not infrequently demonize her political opponents as traitors, unleash anti-Arab and other forms of naked bigotry, wallow in fantasies of violence against real and perceived political enemies, and generally engage in a strange form of political performance art in lieu of argument. Here she collects numerous short examples collected from media appearances and her voluminous writings, including jokes about how all liberals hate Christianity, Senator Ted Kennedy's Chappaquiddick scandal, Islam as inherently violent, and the need to profile "swarthy males." Those who enjoy Coulter's work will not find much new here, but may relive a mean-spirited chuckle or two. Anyone to the left of John Bolton, however, should probably just roll their eyes and ignore this book, unless they wish to aid Coulter's self-promotion of her own notoriety.
