CPAC: Ann Coulter (Live Blogging)
Ann Coulter has just started speaking. She’s attracting a lot of attention from convention goers ready for some red meat. (I’m watching via closed-circuit so that I can live blog, so no photos.)
Not shockingly, her speech so far has been a collection of one-liners, mostly around gay marriage and Hollywood elites, including something to the effect that “Nuts are the entirety of the Democratic Party.”
“Barbara Boxer is a great candidate for the Democratic Party: female and learning disabled.”
More Kennedy jokes. They think he’s middle-of-the-road. “Didn’t he have trouble once sticking to the middle of the road?”
“David Duke can’t speak at American universities, neither should Ward Churchill.”
“We have a lot further to go in the censhorship department in a country that allows Will & Grace on television.”
She ends her speech by renewing her call for a New McCarthyism, saying any “equivocation” on the terror issue is ” beyond the bounds of rational discourse.”
She just brought Matt Drudge out to help her answer questions, to great applause.
She got some sort of gender-based question from a student and answers that “Their glands prevent [males] from becoming Democrats.”
I thought Drudge broke some news about David Geffen eating Hillary Clinton last night in New York. Apparently, though, he merely said that she’d make a poor presidential candidate. (Update: Drudge has the story on his site)
Radley Balko, blogging this next to me, dubs her MoDoCon (the conservative Maureen Dowd).
It’s very much a contest right now as to who is more annoying: Coulter or the people feeding her these idiotic questions. I’m leaning toward the latter.
Oddly, the woman who calls everyone who disagrees with her on international affairs a “traitor” and idiotic comments by college professors “treason,” is a big supporter of the Confederate flag. Even divorced from its civil rights era racial connotations, the flag represents treason against the Union in the most literal sense.
