Ann Coulter's Jew problem

After the GOP debate on Wednesday night, Ann Coulter sent out the following tweets.  As left-leaning Israeli newspaper Haaretz noted:

Coulter, who has 660,000 Twitter followers, was reacting to the frequent mentions of Israel made by participants in the second televised Republican debate held Wednesday at the Ronald Reagan Library in California.

As to Coulter’s tweet at the top, the candidates were asked how the world would look different once Air Force One was parked in the hangar of their presidential library.  (See debate transcript here.)

Coulter misrepresented the question in her tweet and then used it as an opportunity to bash candidates who included Israel in their answer.  But more than bash candidates, she bashed Israel and Jews.  And it was as if she were champing at the bit to do so.

I have never been a fan of Ann Coulter and have often wondered why she is such a darling of the right.  She appears immature, haughty, obnoxious, full of herself, and self-conscious (enough with the hair gesture, Ann), and sometimes downright vile.

I often get the feeling she prides herself on being blunt and provocative just for the sake of it.  There’s a lot of noise about her that makes it difficult to separate what she has to say from who she seems to be.  

But now she’s made it perfectly clear who she is.  And it’s sickening.
