How to Stump Ann Coulter

According to Chris Nelson of Pop and Politics, Ann Coulter was stumped by friendly questions from a conservative audience about how to define the "fascism" part of Islamo-fascism and what to do about Assyrian Christians in Iraq.
When asked “Why is it that the media and the president are turning a blind eye to the Assyrian population in Iraq?” The Assyrians are the indigenous Christians of Iraq. Coulter: “Oh yes, I’ve heard about this and I have no idea. I do not know what the answer is.”Asked twice by a reporter for the university newspaper to define fascism, she floundered. The first time she offered a roundabout response that mentioned Communism, Nazism, and nihilism, saying it was the “total control of people’s lives” and so in this respect “every government is to some extent fascist.” As unsatisfied as everyone else in the room, the reporter, reminding her that she was invited to speak for Islamo-Fascism week, pressed again for a definition. Visibly uncomfortable or perturbed, she told him to consult a dictionary.

Maybe the best way to stump Ann Coulter is to ask her seemingly puff-ball questions or offer her faux compliements that force her to reveal the empty cocktail dress behind her punch lines.

Personally, I've always wanted to congratulate Coulter on being a virgin. After all, Coulter is a conscientious Christian who's never been married. One has to assume that she's been saving her virginity for that "special man" when he comes along.

As they say, "true love waits."

Tell us Doc, does this work on you? Is your bloated leftist ego as massive as Coulter's oversized pseudo-intellectual credentials? Who knew you had so much in common with this odious woman Dr. Caric?

Let's put this to the test. When I criticize Ann Coulter, I usually refer to the specifics of her articles and develop my own arguments in relation to her writing. Can you do the same in relation to my writing? It's easy to use cliched characterizations like "bloated leftist ego," but not nearly as easy to make such accusations stick. So what do you actually have against my writing?
