Anyone want to take Ann Coulter up on her threat?

Ann Coulter: “I Will Sue Every Website Or Comentator That Suggests I’m Transgender”

“With record ratings for her television interview with Diane Sawyer on ABC’s “20/20,” Caitlyn Jenner’s public revelation of her transitioning from male to female brought considerable attention on the world of the transgendered – those born with the body of one gender, but the heart, mind and soul of another. Jenner, an American celebrity first recognized for his gold medal-winning triumph in the Olympic decathlon in 1976, re-emerged in the spotlight several years ago with the E! Television series “Keeping up with the Kardashians” as the stepfather to celebrity-personalities Kim Kardashian and her siblings. That celebrity status and the declaration of his transgender transformation have resulted in an upcoming E! Television docuseries focused exclusively on Jenner.

“Being dead center in the public’s eye is nothing new for Jenner, but it’s a spotlight that other attention-starved celebrities feel is dimming their own respective spotlights. With that in mind, conservative political firebrand, columnist and author Ann Coulter has publicly stated that “for all intents and purposes, I am a woman, too.” This statement, a direct quote from Jenner’s “20/20” interview announcing his embrace of his life as a female, was met with little immediate fanfare.

Shortly after quoting the former Olympian, Coulter continued defending her femininity via Facebook post: “Lately my attention has turned to numerous comments and statements that are trying to also classify me as transgender. I’ve been reading things like ‘She’s got an Adams apple, she has no boobs, her feet are too big for a woman,’ etc. Even though I find these comments utterly ridiculous and have no idea where they come from, I wish to make it clear I am 100% a woman.”

However, the author didn’t stop there: “However, in the interest of protecting myself and those I care about, I hereby announce that I will sue every single person, internet provider, website and TV station that say or refer to me as transgender in any way. This is a decision I have made easily, and stand by it all the way.”

Anyone want to call out her bluff?

Satire: First Shipment Of Thoughts And Prayers Departs NOLA For Earthquake Affected Countries

NEW ORLEANS, LA – Aid has officially begun trickling out of the state, as the first aircraft laden with thoughts and prayers departed New Orleans Louis Armstrong Airport early this morning headed for earthquake victims in Ecuador. A flight also took off shortly after headed for Japan.

Both countries have been affected by strong earthquakes in the last week, and the generosity of Louisiana residents was clear as almost 1.5 million thoughts and prayers were donated to the American Red Cross in the past five days alone, all of which will definitely help victims in rebuilding their lives.

A small ceremony was held at the airport prior to the flights departure, in which New Iberia resident Joni Breaux, official world record holder for ‘Most Prayers Sent Via Facebook’ cut a ribbon to mark the beginning of the aid shipments.

Just for laughs

Is it just me or have you also noticed less and less pro-HRC postings on DU?

The Camp Weathervane people seem do go into random posts, lob a bomb, get a massive counter attack and then disappear.

The pro-Bernie posts are rampant, but the pro-HRC ones have almost disappeared.

About Feeling the Bern

Principle before party is my belief. Lifelong Democrat, but I have no tolerance for blue dogs, tepid centrists, or weak Democrats that feel apologetic to Republicans. The way to win a political war is to fight the enemy using their tactics against them.
