You've all heard about this by now, I'm sure. When I first got wind of her most recent antics, I cringed, but I wasn't shocked. She's been doing this for years: spewing hate in attempt to get the media's attention. And damned if it doesn't work every time.
Here's what I'm left pondering: is she serious? How much of what she says is actually what she believes in her heart of hearts, and how much of it is just to maintain her cartoonish image? Either way, she made a very conscious choice on Monday night when she referred to our president as a "retard." If she was in character, so to speak, she still chose to make a move that was harmful and hurtful to an entire community of people.
She is a smart woman. She went to Cornell and then to law school. She has a deep understanding of politics--I am sure--and yet, she behaves like an imbecile. I wonder if someone will fund me to go undercover and worm my way into her inner circle so that I can discover the truth: Is Ann Coulter a living, breathing, embodiment of hate and oppression, or is she doing this all for a good laugh?
Regardless, it isn't funny.
Did you see this open letter to Ann Coulter written by Special Olympian John Franklin Stephens? Pretty f'in impressive if you ask me.
I'm not above ALL name-calling.
