Ann Coulter

Sane, intelligent people have Keith Olbermann.

Conservative mouth-breathers have Ann Coulter:
"I was going to comment on John Edwards,'' she told the crowd here at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, "but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you say the word faggot.''

Many speakers today told jokes about Al Gore's heated pool, and there was a whole panel discussion on the wa-hoo hilarity of the global warming "debate.'' But natch, Coulter took it up a notch: "Why don't they put solar panels on Al Gore?'' And, "Did Al Gore swallow Michael Moore?'' And, "You know what they say about guys with small carbon footprints.''

She also referred to Barack Obama as "B. Hussein Obama,'' and said Hillary was already at work on hiring her White House team, "a group of hard-working men and women, none of whom is named Monica.''

And as much as we'd like to think she's on the fringe, she's not. The Republican Great White Hope, Mitt Romney, complimented her for being a "moderate".

Republicans ... you should be proud.

She's gone crazy. I remember reading her awhile back and she was so tame compared to what she is right now. It's like somebody took her lid off and now they can't screw it back on.
Ah well, there are blowhards on both sides of the fence.

Yep. I've read a few of her books (and most of the other Right pundits). As Sun Tzu would say, "Know your enemy and know yourself.".

I think part of the problem is that she gets in love with the novelty of herself. She's admittedly not your typical looking conservative. People are not used to that kind of invective coming out of an attractive (to some) blond woman.

I think she is under the assumption she is the only female game in town:

"I think [women] should be armed but should not vote...women have no capacity to understand how money is earned. They have a lot of ideas on how to spend's always more money on education, more money on child care, more money on day care."
Comedy Central; Politically Incorrect; February 26, 2001.

"It would be a much better country if women did not vote. That is simply a fact. In fact, in every presidential election since 1950 - except Goldwater in '64 - the Republican would have won, if only the men had voted."

Does she lump herself in with "women"?? And I agree with you--she likes the concept of being a pretty pistol.

Oops! Now Republicans are denouncing her ... even Romney:
