Coulter "Metio La Pata"

When Ann Coulter opens her mouth, aside from feet attempting to fly into the opened orifice, even card-carrying conservatives like myself hold their breath. Case in point: the recent controversy over her comments on Donny Deutsch's MSNBC show that Christians are "perfected Jews" and that Christians are on the "fast track".

Here's the You Tube link in case you missed it.

I've seen the video and read the transcript of her conversation with Deutsch. Ann stepped in a big pile of doo-doo. Really. A woman of her intelligence should never have allowed herself to say what she did, but after all it IS Ann Coulter.

I'm not going to make a huge deal out of this, except to say a couple of things. One, as a Christian, I found Coulter's remarks to be incredibly stupid, selfish, unnecessary and damaging to most conservative Christians (and conservative Jews I might add). The fact that she stayed after the break to attempt to clarify her comments means that she knew that she screwed up, and no amount of giggling or sparkle in her eye would get her out of it. Donny Deutsch? Why, Ann? Was it really worth it? It's perfectly OK to be proud of being Christian and thinking that it is the best way to attain salvation. But please, you don't have to drag down Judaism. I mean, since when are the Jews our enemies?

Second, Ann Coulter is NOT anti-semitic despite the comments. She did say shortly before her doo-doo moment that a version of a perfect America would include Joe Lieberman, a practicing Jew, as representative of the Democratic Party. She also tried to let Deutsch off the hook a little by saying that he "could be a practicing Jew".

All this does is provide fodder for liberals to make arguments against conservatives, using Coulter as a proxy. We know the fallacy of that strategy, but unfortunately it works because too many conservatives spend too much time making excuses for Coulter's inane comments.

This conservative will not make any excuses. Ann Coulter: you have a brain, a pretty sharp one. Use it every once in a while. You're screwing it up for the rest of us. Coño!
