In which Ann Coulter complains about the competition

coulter

Joseph Farah, the nutty editor of the far-right WorldNetDaily, has gotten himself into an amusing little spat with Ann Coulter, a woman who lives in terror that somewhere there may be a spotlight that she can’t grab.

Coulter had been hired to speak to a group of gay Republicans at their annual convention in New York next month, an event that they have apparently dubbed “Homocon”. (Ken Mehlman, chairman of the Republican National Committee back in the Bush years, may or may not be in attendance.)

Farah then notified Coulter that he was canceling her speaking appearance at a WND event, accusing her of “legitimizing a group that is fighting for same-sex marriage and open homosexuality in the military.”

“Ultimately, as a matter of principle, it would not make sense for us to have Ann speak to a conference about ‘taking America back’ when she clearly does not recognize that the ideals to be espoused there simply do not include the radical and very ‘unconservative’ agenda represented by GOProud,” Farah said.

That in turn set off Coulter, who called Farah “a swine” and accused the WND folks of being “fake Christians.” Farah “is doing this for PUBLICITY and publicity alone,” Coulter complained, going so far as to call him “a publicity whore.”

You heard that right. Ann Coulter called someone a publicity whore, and she wasn’t even looking in the mirror at the time. (I’m not sure she can even SEE herself in a mirror, but I digress.)

So here’s your morning assignment, class, a “fill in the blank” exercise. For example:

Getting called “a publicity whore” by Ann Coulter is … like being called tall by Sultan Kosen.

OK, now it’s your turn.

Getting called a publicity whore by Ann Coulter is like ….

I don’t get that one. Do you object to them because they have so many children? They have chosen to have as many children as God gives them, they have paid for everything they have by their own efforts and while I might not agree with all of their tenets, they have stuck to them and taught them to their children.

So why would you consider them irresponsible?
