In which I google Doris D to find some letters to the editor she wrote and find her 1984 reference, which doesn't surprise me, as she was very intelligent and very well read, but the ad-hominem attack disappoints me

I found a letter to the editor Doris wrote about Ann Coulter in which she calls her "skinny," "horse-faced," and "dyed blond." Then Doris says she reads Coulter for her morning "ten minutes of harmless hate."

And I am so disappointed.

Because really, Doris? That's the best you could come up with about Ann Coulter? You couldn't counter her assertions with fact? You had to resort to criticizing the looks of another woman?

I thought Doris had more academic rigor than that. I thought she had more integrity. I wanted her to be better than that.


  1. Maybe Sly wrote it, and signed her name to it.

  2. Attacking a person's physical appearance always cheapens any argument. Unfortunately, when it comes to Donald Trump, I just can't help it.

  3. I thought maybe Sly wrote or dictated it as well

  4. That disappoints me as well. Especially as a liberal. :-)

    I'm no Ann Coulter fan since she started slobbering all over Chris Christie. That said, attacks on appearance are creepy, especially when one woman does it to another.
