Ann Coulter’s Heaven

Atrios links to these words of wisdom from Ann Coulter:
During the October 8 edition of CNBC's The Big Idea, host Donny Deutsch asked right-wing pundit Ann Coulter: "If you had your way ... and your dreams, which are genuine, came true ... what would this country look like?" Coulter responded, "It would look like New York City during the [2004] Republican National Convention. In fact, that's what I think heaven is going to look like." She described the convention as follows: "People were happy. They're Christian. They're tolerant. They defend America."

Apparently, Ann has forgotten one of the most enduring images from the 2004 Republican National Convention:

Well, she got the happy part right.

Ann went on to give this bizarre interpretation of Scripture:

Deutsch then asked, "It would be better if we were all Christian?" to which Coulter responded, "Yes." Later in the discussion, Deutsch said to her: "[Y]ou said we should throw Judaism away and we should all be Christians," and Coulter again replied, "Yes." When pressed by Deutsch regarding whether she wanted to be like "the head of Iran" and "wipe Israel off the Earth," Coulter stated: "No, we just want Jews to be perfected, as they say. ... That's what Christianity is. We believe the Old Testament, but ours is more like Federal Express. You have to obey laws."

Huh? Ann, honey, you’ve been worshipping at Church of Free Enterprise a tad too long. There’s something terribly ironic about the title of her new book: If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans.

Interestingly, Ann Coulter’s “heaven” also disenfranchises women:

An October 2 New York Observer blog post featuring excerpts of an interview with right-wing pundit Ann Coulter quoted her as saying: “If we took away women's right to vote, we'd never have to worry about another Democrat [sic] president. It's kind of a pipe dream, it's a personal fantasy of mine, but I don't think it's going to happen. And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women.”

This might be a good time to remind folks that that Ann is the good Christian single woman who narrowly escaped felony voter fraud charges after calling in a favor from an ex-boyfriend.

Keep it up, Ann. You’re the best advertisement for the Democratic Party out there.
