Remiss as I am to give Ann Coulter any attention, this is just obscene: the Fox News commenter wrote a blog post in which she suggested Meghan McCain, daughter of Sen. John McCain and a Republican commentator, should be killed.
Coulter blogged on Fox about MSNBC host Martin Bashir, mis-stating (as NYMag.com explains) that he had suggested Republican senators wouldn’t support gun control unless they had members of their families killed:
“MSNBC’s Martin Bashir suggested that Republican senators need to have a member of their families killed for them to support the Democrats’ gun proposals. (Let’s start with Meghan McCain!)”
Yup, she just suggested that John McCain’s daughter should be murdered. Really, Ann Coulter? Keep reading »
On Monday, conservative pundit Ann Coulter tweeted her support of Mitt Romney with the following: “I highly approve of Romney’s decision to be kind and gentle to the retard.” In response to her use of the R-word, John Franklin Stephens, Special Olympics spokesperson and athlete, wrote Ann an open letter. We’ve received permission to repost it here.
Dear Ann Coulter,
Come on Ms. Coulter, you aren’t dumb and you aren’t shallow. So why are you continually using a word like the R-word as an insult?
I’m a 30 year old man with Down syndrome who has struggled with the public’s perception that an intellectual disability means that I am dumb and shallow. I am not either of those things, but I do process information more slowly than the rest of you. In fact it has taken me all day to figure out how to respond to your use of the R-word last night.

Ann Coulter must have been feeling ignored, because she’s dropped a bomb that’s managed to anger even her fellow conservatives. Last night after live-tweeting the debate, Coulter posted, “I highly approve of Romney’s decision to be kind and gentle to the retard.” Among her critics: Michelle Malkin, who tweeted, “What a stupid, shallow thing to say, Ann.” Malkin’s Twitter site, Twitchy, rounded up some of the negative backlash and noted, “She sure doesn’t speak for us.” Read more….
“I find it a little baffling when Americans get so gaga-eyed over a princess. In particularly Lady Di, who was just this anorexic, bulimic narcissist.”
– Ann Coulter doesn’t mince words when discussing Princess Diana and Americans’ fascination with the royal family. Something tells me if she wasn’t already unwelcome in the U.K., she certainly is now. [The Insider] Keep reading »
We here at The Frisky try to avoid Ann Coulter on the theory that if you ignore it, it will go away. But every now and then she says something so ridiculous that we just can’t keep quiet about it. Recently, she’s been saying that Muslims shouldn’t be allowed on airplanes. Instead, she says they should take “flying carpets.” At the University of Ottawa on Monday night, a Muslim student stood up and challenged her on this. Ann’s response to her? “So take a camel.” The audience began to boo. The next evening, when a second appearance was scheduled, a massive number of student protesters showed up and school officials decided to cancel the event. Here’s a look back at some other insane things Ann Coulter has said. Keep reading »
