Ann Coulter, intellectual heavyweight, flaps her gums for another $25K
Ann Coulter spews wingnut stupidity at the Lied Center as part of the J.A. Vickers Sr. Memorial Lecture Series. Kay Wright, Lawrence, carries a copy of Ann Coulter’s book “How to Talk to a Liberal.” Wright hoped to get it signed for her son, Lt. Col. Kevin Wright, of Fort Knox, Ky.

(via Raw Story). Bony ass, bed-worn b*tch of the Reich, Ann Coulter fills her pockets on one of her regular road trips to campuses where she faces fans and hecklers. I hope Kansas University felt it got its money’s worth with sterling commentary like this (The Lawrence Journal-World):
Coulter fired off one zinger after another about liberalism while promising to answer questions from left-wing members in the audience who could “thrash their way to a coherent thought.”
“I’ve come to find I like liberals a lot more,” Coulter said early in her speech. “They’re kind of cute when they’re cold, shivering and afraid.”
Coulter spoke as the 37th J.A. Vickers Sr. Memorial Lecture Series lecturer to a crowd estimated by KU officials at about 1,800 people. The lectures, which began in 1971, were established through a gift to the Kansas University Endowment Association by the Vickers family of Wichita. Coulter received several standing ovations during her speech, but she also found herself interrupted several times by a small, scattered group of hecklers.
“I think there are some people in the audience who meant to be at the sexual reorientation class down the hall,” Coulter said, in response to the heckling….Later, when heckling broke out again, a couple of uniformed KU Public Safety Department officers appeared and escorted about six people out of the auditorium.
Coulter resumed her critical remarks, calling Sen. Ted Kennedy a “human dirigible” and the Democrats’ “spiritual leader.” She also made fun of the Democrats’ dalliance with filmmaker Michael Moore and former presidential candidate John Kerry, who she said got away with telling “big, fat, enormous lies.” Despite Kerry’s loss, Democrats think their political stances and ideas just “need new labels for their bottles,” Coulter said.
She also blasted the nation’s judicial system for its handling of the Terri Schiavo case. “We no longer have a single check on the judiciary,” she said.
My favorite quote from the article comes from John Altevogt, a wingnut Repug activist — “Ann Coulter is logical, rational and an independent thinker,” he said. “In essence, everything the left hates in their womenfolk.”
