Ann Coulter At Fordham University: School President Joseph M. McShane Blasts College Republicans For

Inviting her.

Controversial conservative pundit Ann Coulter was invited -- and then uninvited -- to speak at Fordham University in New York last week.

Fordham President Joseph M. McShane, S.J., chastised his campus' chapter of the College Republicans for inviting Coulter -- who recently referred to President Obama as a "retard" -- to speak on campus, paying her with student fees. He addressed the entire university with his decision in a campuswide email.

"To say that I am disappointed with the judgment and maturity of the College Republicans, however, would be a tremendous understatement," McShane wrote. "There are many people who can speak to the conservative point of view with integrity and conviction, but Ms. Coulter is not among them. Her rhetoric is often hateful and needlessly provocative—more heat than light—and her message is aimed squarely at the darker side of our nature."

Her photo should adorn the wiki page on Bigotry. Or Ugliness. Both, maybe.
