In Which I Agree with Ann Coulter

Ann Coulter’s hateful comments at the CPAC this weekend have been condemned by John McCain, Rudy Giuliani, and, more blandly, Mitt Romney. That’s no surprise, really—these guys yuck it up in a roomful of conservatives and then tell the media what it wants to hear. What is surprising is that a group of conservative bloggers have written a letter to the conference organizers requesting that Coulter never be invited back. They say—and I can only hope this is how it plays to average American voters—that her hate speech coarsens the political dialogue.

It’s funny, though, Coulter and I agree about one thing: Mitt Romney. She supports him and I can’t stand the guy, but we have the same take on his past tolerance for gays and abortion: “He tricked liberals into voting for him.” (Coulter went on to say, “I like a guy who hoodwinks the voters so easily.”)
