Coultergeist debates Stossel in front of libertarians...



Stossel was filming his show at the International Students for Liberty Conference in Washington, D.C., with around 1,400 libertarian students in attendance, according to Mediaite’s Andrew Kirell.

When Stossel brought up the drug war, Coulter scoffed, and reportedly (though it was bleeped out) said, “This is why people think libertarians are pussies.” She continued:

We’re living in a country that is 70-percent socialist, the government takes 60 percent of your money. They are taking care of your health care, of your pensions. They’re telling you who you can hire, what the regulations will be. And you want to suck up to your little liberal friends and say, ‘Oh, but we want to legalize pot.’ You know, if you were a little more manly you would tell the liberals what your position on employment discrimination is. How about that? But it’s always ‘We want to legalize pot.’”

When Stossel asked Coulter: “Why can’t gays get married?” She replied: “Well, they can. They have to marry a member of the opposite sex.” She was heartily booed.

1. John Stasshole is a pretty awful character, but

Coulter inhabits the bottom of the barrel. I think what she does is a sort of twisted performance art, so extreme that it makes you gasp - kind of like the lunatic emanations of Beck and Limbaugh. Does she actually believe what she says, or is it pure shtick? Either way, there are people who believe her, and that's the worst thing of all.

3. lol

 

That response of hers to stossel's 'why cant gays get married' question is pure comedy gold.

Coulter is an authoritian, using the gov't to force everyone to live under her opinions of what society should be, and her opinion of what society should be sucks.

4. I understand fully why Ann Coulter has never been married..

No one (male, female, gay, straight, etc) would ever want to be around that nastiness called Ann Coulter.

What a disgusting waste of a human being (if she is even that).
