She does this for attention...

It's official. Ann Coulter will say anything for attention. She will defend white supremacist groups if it means people will "get outraged" at her and "put her on TV" so she can "hawk her pointless, angry diatribes" to "morons."

Yes, I am aware of the irony of writing about her in order to condemn paying attention to her. But it needs to be said. People need to stop getting upset with her for saying these things, because she most likely does not mean them. They are not designed to engage debate, and therefore should not be engaged in a debate.

Ideally, Coulter would become the pundit's answer to what Carrot Top or Carlos Mencia are to comedy. A figure that exists only to be held up for ridicule, as an example of the most odious form of the profession. "Now you sound like Ann Coulter!" is already 99% of the way to being a clear and aggressive insult. I'm just saying we need to push it that extra 1% of the way.
