By the way, the great mutual empathy between women and homosexual men is a myth by which only, somewhat endearingly, straight men are taken in, and to say that Ann Coulter might be (no matter the context) "like any other woman" is so mind-bogglingly insensitive that it defies belief.
Why would Coulter speak at such an event? Money? Hardly. She knows quite well that attention like that will alienate a lot of her core audience and that she'll lose more than she'll win. Does she think then that those homosexual Republicans have a legitimate cause? Good joke. My money is still on Coulter being homosexual herself. Should her shrivelled little black, well, heart really be in this, that would be an explanation of her utterly over-the-top reaction to Joseph Farah's criticism, a reaction which came across for once not as coldly calculating, but as genuinely deranged. But whatever.
At my German blog I commented in January 2008 that the punditesse was receiving lately some, albeit scant, notoriety in Germany, namely by the small and disorientated wannabe-neocon-faction, because she is so deliciously "different" and Germans like it masterful.
The problem is that we are satisfied with attacking an undefined Left, the more vocal the better, to be considered a "conservative". Any content, positive goals, commonsensical arguments or even a basic ethical consensus are superfluous, which guarantees somebody like Ann Coulter a secure, warm little place at the humble hearth of a "conservative" movement that is as free from perception as from shame.I think that is still a pretty apt description of Coulter and those who will fall for her.
