I'd love to see this woman on Newsnight

Ann Coulter is the sort of direct, straight to the point kind of woman that we could do with on this side of the pond. I'd love to see her slogging it out with Paxo - I have no doubt who'd come out on top.

In this blistering critique of liberal appeasement, Ms Coulter makes some very astute observations.

"But being nice to enemies is an idea that has never worked, no matter how many times liberals make us do it. It didn't work with the Soviet Union, Imperial Japan, Hitler or the North Vietnamese — enemies notable for being more civilized than the Islamic savages we are at war with today"

So true.

"It was this idiotic idea of being nice to predators that drove liberal crime policies in the '60s and '70s — leading like night into day to unprecedented crime rates"

Sound familiar?

Erm, she already has been. With Paxman.

She was on a few months ago. Unfortunately Paxman could only be bothered asking her if she meant what she had wrote. Coulter certainly won IMO.

Shame about the anti-Darwinism, but she's still brilliant.

She did slog it out with him in the summer over her book. Is somewhere on youtube I think - you might be able to find it. It was quite entertaining.

Ann Coulter was on Newsnight, came up against Paxman and won convincingly, the interview can still be seen here:

Ann Coulter - did she beat Paxman?

Thanks to all who've pointed out that Coulter did appear on Newsnight. I've now watched the clip and she certainly made Paxo look a bit of clod.

But I'd still like to see her in the studio discussing liberalism as opposed to defending her comments on certain wives of 9/11 victims.
