Coulter isn’t stupid; maybe she was just drunk?

Too many cocktails perhaps – how else to explain these clips. I always saw the woman as an opportunist (a smart one, she identified an emerging market early on and fed it with titles like Slander(!), Treason(!)*, Godless(!), Demonic(!) and Mugged (by guess who!) among other illustrious works.

Judge for yourself. (And what ever happened to her? I’ve not seen her around.)

* For anyone who’s forgotten, this one was the defense of Sen. Joseph McCarthy.

Maybe they could do a warm up round before the next debate?

It devolves further: Now eating their own as Michelle Malkin calls Ann Coulter delusional. Wheeeeee!

Coulter is under the continued delusion that Sarah Palin was the problem with the 2008 ticket and not McCain. Later in the show, when Van Jones floated former Bush Secretary of State Condoleezza Rices name for VP, Coulter snorted again: “Too much like Palin.”

Say what?

Like her love object Chris Christie, Coulter has been taking many open shots at Palin lately.


This is not about Ann Coulter. It is about the NYT reporter Laura M. Holson, who today in a long piece about Coulter quotes her brother saying of the provocative spotlight hugging conservative snarkstress  “She couldn’t wait to get out of the sticks of Connecticut”.

Ms. Holson, in her profile of Coulter, felt no need to expand on that quote. The ‘sticks of Connecticut’ to which the brother referred is New Canaan, Connecticut – 45 miles or so from Ms. Holson’s office –  and one of the wealthiest enclaves in the country. Kids in New Canaan can jump a train after school to go shopping on Fifth Avenue. And be home in time for dinner.

Ms. Holson, you don’t need to challenge your sources. You are, however, expected to expand on comments that beggar credulity.
