When I worked in news I knew someone that knew her pretty well from her early career. They went out to concerts that were more left radical than anything else. He said she was nice/fun - but whatever she is now is some weird caricature of what was more of a contrarian back then. I don't think we are ever going to know the full scoop on Couture... life imitating art - some bizarre performance piece, some puppet of some kind, talking head distraction from real problems, independent meaning what she say's or just a mean bitch with a personality disorder

Growing up I always felt the dead/jam scene was really conservative by the folks I knew into th
at music. And I have found that still to be the case after getting into it later in life. Compared to punk rock and such, most folks I have met seem to have steady white collar jobs, houses, families, moderate or status quo kind of views. So I'm not sure that this is any great anomaly. Not bashing on the above - this could have just been my experience growing up in CT. The rich kids in town where into "jam" bands, working class kids into punk rock.... a generalization based on my small world of that time.

She is a more fascist leaning conservative - but the more libertarian minded seem to make a lot of sense to the overall DIY, off the grid sort of mindset a lot of folks I have met at shows have. The dead seem historically to attract polar opposites and for a short time melt the mindless egotism of various positions, politics included. light and dark, yin and yang - yada yada.


Hey- she IS from New Canaan.... beautiful out there in the woods. I hail from Stamford myself.

Hehe this is true - I forgot that factoid. CT is beautiful. In many ways I never really appreciated it . For such a small state there is some real weird (in a good way) going on in every nook and cranny. I moved out west this year and love the weather and exploring, but miss the nutmeg state quite a bit.

83, I'm not sure I really deserved that, unless being tolerant means being silent about the hatred and bigotry of others. But you have taught me a lesson about being more careful about expressing my opinion around here, unless i can develop a thicker skin.

We had a discussion on ratdog.org about toleration. The essence of it was that liberals should be more "tolerant" of evangelicals. Sure enough, as the thread started to wind out of steam, we got a couple of bible thumpers on there that proceeded to show everyone the limits of my toleration.

So let me ask you, 83: at what time should I stop being tolerant of someone who is herself hateful, nasty, bigoted, etc etc etc etc. ? In college I had to pick a book out of 30 to do a "critical analysis" on. and sure enough, I picked up a book titled "On toleration" or just "toleration". It was 10 years ago. And what I concluded was that for a society of multiculturalism like ours, toleration is not enough. We need to embrace others beliefs, differences etc. and rejoice that we are made up of so much difference. I think that's what democrats want to do (but getting spit on constantly doesn't help). It's not ENOUGH for one to say they tolerate others because that doesn't allow us to move forward, as a united society. It allows fractures, schisms, infighting... basically what we have today in the federal government.

So that being said: it is pretty clear that the right is intolerant. They threaten RINOs, for example. They tend towards homophobia and bigotry ("marriage is between a man and a woman..."). So I ask you: at what point is it correct or acceptable to stop being tolerating towards people who have either not earned my respect or earned a right to my tolerance, or should I be expected to tolerate no matter what? I sincerely do not know if Ms. Coulter deserves anything from my but pity and compassion. Obama basically said you can't keep responding to my handshake with a fist.... that's exactly what Coulter does. And sh does it with that evil smile of hers. I'm not christian so the "turn the other cheek" is funny to think about from the likes of Coulture, a suppossed christian herself.

83, I've never been anything but friendly to you, and I feel that calling me a hypocrite for despising a bigoted, intolerant hatemonger like Ann Coulter is both inaccurate and a mean, personal attack. That's my opinion.
