    Compare And Contrast, For Your Amusement

    Two famous people.  Two audiences whose popularity are worldwide.  Two equally powerful American political parties.
    Today, for your consideration, from
    "for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change"
    Albert Arnold (Al) Gore Jr.
    1/2 of the prize
    b. 1948
    DEUTSCH: "Let's wipe Israel off the earth." I mean, what, no Jews?

    COULTER: No, we think -- we just want Jews to be perfected, as they say.

    DEUTSCH: Wow, you didn't really say that, did you?

    COULTER: Yes. That is what Christianity is. We believe the Old Testament, but ours is more like Federal Express. You have to obey laws. We know we're all sinners --

    DEUTSCH: In my old days, I would have argued -- when you say something absurd like that, there's no --

    COULTER: What's absurd?

    DEUTSCH: Jews are going to be perfected. I'm going to go off and try to perfect myself --

    COULTER: Well, that's what the New Testament says.

    DEUTSCH: Ann Coulter, author of If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans, and if Ann Coulter had any brains, she would not say Jews need to be perfected. I'm offended by that personally. And we'll have more Big Idea when we come back.


    DEUTSCH: Welcome back to The Big Idea. During the break, Ann said she wanted to explain her last comment. So I'm going to give her a chance. So you don't think that was offensive?

    COULTER: No. I'm sorry. It is not intended to be. I don't think you should take it that way, but that is what Christians consider themselves: perfected Jews. We believe the Old Testament. As you know from the Old Testament, God was constantly getting fed up with humans for not being able to, you know, live up to all the laws. What Christians believe -- this is just a statement of what the New Testament is -- is that that's why Christ came and died for our sins. Christians believe the Old Testament. You don't believe our testament.

    DEUTSCH: You said -- your exact words were, "Jews need to be perfected." Those are the words out of your mouth.

    COULTER: No, I'm saying that's what a Christian is.

    DEUTSCH: But that's what you said -- don't you see how hateful, how anti-Semitic --

    COULTER: No!

    DEUTSCH: How do you not see? You're an educated woman. How do you not see that?

    COULTER: That isn't hateful at all.
    I suppose you should read the whole transcript.
    Ann Coulter.
    ...and that is probably the last time I will ever write your name, Ann.  May you soon be regulated to the political discourse dustbin that you so obviously deserve.

    Isn't AC a great role model for Christianity? She's one of many (like Fred Phelps & Co.) who call themselves "Christians", who despises just about everyone who's not like her. Too bad Deutsch gave that arrogant slag an interview. OK, we're finished with her now. L
