Oh, Ann Coulter, you silly, terrifying woman. If you want to stay at all relevant, you’re going to have to let go of some of the hate and a lot of the crazy.
Ann Coulter’s unique charms were on full display during a recent debate with John Stossel in front of a room of libertarian students. She defends the war in Iraq and the war on drugs and calls libertarians pussies. Seriously, you can almost see her fighting to stay afloat as she clings frantically to the waterlogged corpse of the GOP.
Perhaps most embarrassing of all was Coulter on the subject of gay marriage. When asked why gay people couldn’t marry like straight people could, Coulter said, “Well, they can. They have to marry a member of the opposite sex,” drawing boos from the crowd. She countered that libertarians are “sucking up” to liberals on this issue, saying, “Marriage is the most important institution to civilize young people.”
She continued, “Liberals want to destroy the family so that you will have one loyalty – and that is to the government.” That line, at least, got a big laugh, and as we know, Ann Coulter can’t stand the sound of human joy.
Hopefully it will be a while before we have to hear from her again.
