The New F-Word  
The New F-Word. Why the Big Deal? And Why Now? by Peggy Drexler

"It's not that Ann Coulter used the word "faggot." ­This is the person who continues to defend her argument that women whose husbands burned alive on 9-11 are enjoying their deaths.

And it's not the media attention she received; a successful prime time television was built around people eating the entrails of cattle.

What struck me most was the depth and the breath of the reaction to a gay slur in a country that is not all that far removed from swapping AIDS jokes...."


And, I posted this on my personal journal, but forgot to post it here.

My favorite quote about Coulter is what Andrew Sullivan said about her after she went after the 9/11 widows last year. He said:
"She's a drag queen impersonating a fascist. I don't even begin to believe she actually believes this stuff. It's post-modern performance-art... Half the time, I tend to think that a Hannity or O'Reilly or Malkin actually believes their own rhetoric. With Coulter, I don't believe it for a second. And so her vileness cannot be taken seriously. She is worse than vile. She is just empty."

I really do think she's a complete fraud. I hate her, nonetheless, but I don't think she believes most of what she says.
