Excerpts Of The Day: Ann Coulter Knows How To Dish Out The Copy
A few excerpts from Ann Coulter’s latest column, which features questions and answers that were left out of a Baltimore Sun interview with her:
SUN: The last time we spoke, you told me you’re routinely misquoted by newspaper reporters. What are a couple of the more egregious examples? Why does this happen?
Ann Coulter: It happens so much, I don’t even keep track of it anymore. The last one I remember was when I said “cutting the tax rate on capital gains seems to have increased tax receipts for fiscal 2006, just as supply-side economics predicted it would.” It came out in the paper as, “I worship Adolf Hitler and share all of his goals, especially the ‘final solution’ to the ‘Jewish problem.'”
I have no idea how it happens, given the strict objectivity and rigid nonpartisanship of the American media.
SUN: Any comments on …Kofi Annan
Ann Coulter: That guy? Isn’t he on the ground fighting with Hezbollah?
SUN: Any other wild, hippie-esque practices we should know about?
Ann Coulter: You mean other than the fact that I live in a filthy van with a dog, a gentleman I refer to as “my old man” and our daughter “Diversity Seagull,” and we make our living weaving hemp baskets? No, not really.
