Yeah, I heard Romney was so shocked by her remarks that he forgot to stop clapping when she was done.

That is one classy broad.

I just saw the video. Did you hear the applause and cheers? These people are deranged.

She's really giving trannies a bad name.

what a banshee....can't find the video anywhere tho.

Face it, she's a man who can have babies.

Contrast that to Billy Crystal, who can only have pee drops in his panel when she appears on the screen.

my stepson just heard Mann for the first time (he's 20). it took a while to calm him down - first time he's been accused of thought crime.

Well, in Ann Coulter's defense, she is a raging, nutjob bitch.

You know, I can't think of a word bad enough for her. I like the word "cunt" far too much to waste it on her.

Lloyd @ 6,

Do you mean Bill Kristol by any chance?

Posted by keshmeshi | March 2, 2007 5:32 PM

I can't think of a more appropriate word than cunt, but I am guy so I don't know what I am allowed to call her.

Coincidently, while reading the initial post I was listening to Body Count playing "KKK Bitch." I don't think even Ice-T would fuck that.

I realized awhile back that Republicans are only a smidge to the left of the Daleks. So, whenever I read a quote from , I always hear that screeching, metallic voice:

Aliens! Aliens!

Exterminate! Exterminate!

Keshmeshi, good one. I bet she calls him Mr. Mom.

I saw more of her on CSPAN. She bashed Gore too & categorized Democrats as heartless atheists. Typical Coulter...

Posted by MM | March 2, 2007 6:51 PM

She wreaks of santorum.

Can you imagine how much energy it must take to be as vile as Ann? I don't know how she does it.

I think it's Meth.

It must have another "book" due soon.

And let's not forget that Andrew Sullivan defended poor Ann by downplaying just how obscene she is. Indeed one reader of his blog called himon it. Here's the reader's skewer and his pathetic response:

Schizoid On Coulter?

A reader writes:

I'm confused. Wasn't it Andrew Sullivan who declared Ms. Coulter to be nothing more than a "performance artist" who need not be taken seriously? I believe that, in July 2006, when Ms. Coulter referred to Al Gore as a "total fag," liberal commentators were aghast. But you dimissed her anti-gay hate as "high camp," a mere "vaudeville act." After all, it wasn't as if she used the word, "fag," in a perjorative way - it was just an inside joke, right?

Now comes Mr. Sullivan to declare Coulter the "standard bearer [of] the new Republicanism, one who "truly represents the heart and soul of contemporary conservative activism." Presumably that heart and soul includes hatred of homosexuals.

Well, which is it -- high camp vaudevillian or true face of the conservative movement? And where does that leave you?

It's a fair point. I once called her a "drag queen posing as a fascist." But I didn't mean that as a compliment. My only response to my reader is that seeing her live in front of a young, cheering crowd made me feel a lot less complacent. Being a gay man in a crowd that cheers a woman denigrating someone for being a "faggot" is an educative experience. Seeing college kids line up to worship her tore me up. These kids deserve better. They're young and smart enough to be interested in conservatism - and this is what they are getting? From a stage where two presidential candidates just spoke? I guess I've been a bit of a smug ironist who just got mugged by conservative reality.
