Apparently 9-11 widows aren't allowed to have a p.o.v., at least according to Ann Coulter. I guess that means no one with a personal experience of something should be addressing the broader body politic - that's the sole province of the erudite and the governing. Sound like democracy to you?
Much as I dislike her, I have always found Ann Coulter to be a very intelligent (if one can be called that when so lacking in feeling), and well-spoken woman, though I have never agreed with much of anything that comes out of her acerbic mouth. She is so mean, even her frame is brittle. I've seen her in debates with some serious contenders, and she always has this amazing unshakeable confidence. She'd call it 'infallibility.' However, as this video shows, she is really starting to lose her composure, to the point of ineloquence. Is it possible she knows she's on shaky ground these days? Really, attacking widows of the 9-11 tragedy? What finishing school did you go to? Even some right-wingers abhor her stance.
My real question is, why is she wearing a short-hemmed cocktail dress to promote her political tome (apparently Kathy Griffin agrees). What happened to the tailored Ann? And please note the crucifix at her throat - isn't this the same, if pared down, costume we saw on Madonna in the "Like A Virgin" video? Or maybe it was Lucky Star? In any case, it's definitely early Madonna, and writhing around on a gondola would do Ann Coulter some good.
