We’re just going to say it: Ann Coulter is to political commentary what Britney Spears is to celebrity culture. Remember when Jamie Lynn Spears got pregnant and was the focus of all attention for a couple of days? Britney got upset that she was out of the news for a few days, filled herself up with booze and pills, stole her children for a night, and had to be rushed to the hospital.
And then Heath Ledger died and took away the attention again for a week, so she really went for it and broke international crazy records for a few days — until someone finally had to lock her up in a mental institution. That’s Ann Coulter, albeit on a much more minor, only slightly less child-threatening way. She has to do something bigger and more ridiculous each time in order to stay in the headlines. For a while, after Elizabeth Edwards embarrassed her with a confrontation on live television (a feat which previously not even 9/11 widows were able to do), she laid low. But then Edwards dropped out of the race again, and Coulter was free to pull publicity stunts again. We’ve been talking too much about Hillary and Obama, and race and gender! Fuck that, what about Ann?! So here we are: She’s endorsing Hillary and bashing a war hero. We can’t wait to see what the rest of the year will bring! Maybe Ann will gay propose to Peggy Noonan!
