I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Ann Coulter Is An Idiot

by @ 7:48 am on March 3, 2007. Filed under In The News

That’s the only possible explanation for saying stupid crap like this:

Ann Coulter almost made it through her CPAC speech without looking like a complete buffoon. She wasn?t funny, she rarely is, but she?s an attention whore. Near the end of her speech she said she wouldn?t talk about John Edwards because ? you have to go into rehab if you use the word ?faggot.?

On second thought, there is another explanation, and it’s one I’ve long suspected — perhaps Ann doesn’t believe anything she says and is simply provactive to attract attention.

The word for that type of person is hypocrite.

In either case, I thank the Lord she’s not a libertarian.

Here’s the video. Note the reaction of the crowd:

Jason Pye puts it well:

Note to conservatives?start looking for other people to front your movement.

And Rick Moran has an idea I’m fully on board with:

I urge everyone ? right and left ? to take the following actions:

1. Never write another blog post about Ann Coulter no matter how outrageous, cruel, or bigoted her language.

2. Immediately write the Presidents of Fox News, MSNBC, and CNN demanding that they refuse to schedule Coulter on any show for any reason on their networks.

3. Write the editor of Human Events and demand that they drop her column.

4. If her column appears in your local newspaper, write a letter to the editor demanding that they drop her column.

5. If you see her writings in any on line or print publication, write the editor and demand that they stop carrying her columns.

6. Any upcoming forum in which she is scheduled as a speaker or panel participant, write a letter to the organizers and make it clear that the reason you are not attending is due to Coulter?s presence.

The goal is to starve the witch of the attention she craves.

I like it.

    I’ll do this when the Democrats tell Cindy Sheehan to shut up. Until then, the complaints I hear from the left over this mean nothing to me.

    As for libertarians, you guys have always thought differently from either. Of course, I’m not sure how you come to the conclusion that she didn’t believe what she said; seems like a stretch to me.

    Ann Coulter can be vicious and mean, but she’s about all the right has. I am personally glad we have one shark, because liberals never work to shut up the dozens, if not hundreds, that they have. I prefer debate myself, but I’ve always said that anyone who thinks politics is nice is in the wrong business. I find it particularly ironic that it is Howard Dean making these statements; he has a lot to account for if he wants an apology.

  2. CR UVa says:

    Yes, she should tone down, but the real hypocrisy is that Democrats pretend that they do not do this sort of thing, and it is clear that I am not the only one thinking this.

    Ann can say whatever she pleases. I’ll defend her right to do her shtick, TFM just reserves the right to call her a Knucklehead when appropriate.

  4. Tara says:

    Ann Coulter is a piece of garbage that even the guys in orange overalls won’t pick up on the side of the freeway.

    You know what I mean.

  5. Go Blue says:

    Just because we believe in free speech, does not mean that we have to listen to complete buffoons like Coulter seriously. Perhaps Republicans should try to get an intelligent person to speak for them for once! You know, one who can state facts, not throw asinine insults.

  6. Nel says:

    I am a liberal and I think Ann Coulter is just a piece of human fecal however, I don’t think she should be banned from writing editorials or be banned from TV interviews. Let her say what she wants to say, and we will do the same. That is the essence of free speech.
