I was watching Joe Scarborough on MSNBC this morning. He had Ann
Coulter on the phone, talking about her recent dustup with Elizabeth
Edwards. AC actually seemed to be losing her cool...Joe wasn't
picking on her but she kind of went off on a rant about how
everybody in the world was attacking her unfairly, etc. etc.
Probably just an act. But it's fun to think about her actually
having real human emotions and vulnerabilities.
I'm actually kind of puzzled why she's singled out John Edwards.
He's not running well, in fact if he doesn't win Iowa he'll probably
have to drop out of the race. Seems like she'd be more interested
in lobbing her acid spitballs at Obama and Hillary...
She's not just nasty. She's also a planner. When she makes a remark,
she nearly always does it in a slightly confusing manner so she
can claim later that she was taken out of context.
For example, she didn't come right out in March and call John
Edwards a faggot. Instead, she used this roundabout routine that
touched on a Gray's Anatomy actor having to go through rehab and
implied the same thing would happen to her if she tried to discuss Edwards.
Then a couple days ago, Coulter said "If I'm gonna say anything about John Edwards in the future, I'll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot." Once again, a nasty
and confusing remark which was actually a response to something
Coulter's pal Bill Maher said recently about Dick Cheney.
She is one cold-blooded conservative. I just really, really hope
she gets a wake-up call someday and decides to resume human form.
