Ann Coulter is know as a Conservative talking head who has published many books filled with things that people (unfortunately) take the time to read and absorb, mainly to figure out what the hell is going through her head at times and how she could come up with such banter.
But somehow, some way, I know for a fact that this whole act is just that: an act.
She’s done many controversial things, one recently being a statement she made about civil rights only being for the Blacks (as she kindly put it). Just last night, after the presidential debate, she posted a tweet about Obama that got people’s panties in a twist. As a result, an open letter was addressed to her by Special Olympics athlete and global messenger John Franklin Stephens (the letter was beautiful and heartfelt, BTW).
But it’s obvious that this is what she expected and wanted all along. Controversy brings about press, whether good or bad. Ann Coulter isn’t stupid, but she’s willing to take advantage of the gullible and say whatever will get people riled up and angry. Sadly, there are people who genuinely think and say the same things that fly out of her mouth or are transferred from pen to paper, and she knows to wrangle them up and get them excited.
With the way she’s going, Coulter could run for public office. I don’t know how far she’d get in the contest, but depending on where she runs and what office she’d run for, she’d probably win in a landslide.
I think the point I’m trying to get at is that it’s not hard to see through the actress that is Ann Coulter. I don’t know her personally nor socially, but I don’t believe, not even for a nanosecond, that she actually believes the horse radish she spews. I really don’t; she’s an educated woman, and I’m sure she reads all the newspapers and newsmagazines and watches all of the pundits and keeps track of social issues, current events, etc.
She seems to be a parody of the stereotypical ignoramus that we see or meet on occasion.
Well, Ms. Coulter, I believe you’ve earned your Academy Award. Nice work!
