Re "Candidates woo conservatives," March 3

I can't understand why liberals get so enraged at conservative pundit Ann Coulter's comments, such as the epithet she used at the Conservative Political Action Conference sessions last weekend. I welcome her misguided rhetoric and was especially pleased with the rousing response from those gathered there. She remains the physical embodiment of everything that is wrong with this administration and its divisive policies. I say, give her a 24-hour cable channel and let her rip. She's a Democrat's best friend.




Every time Coulter is given a forum by the far-right wing of the Republican Party, she ends up pleasing her audience and marginalizing herself and those who solicit her support. Her longtime love affair with hate speech makes one wonder what use she actually has for a constitutional democracy; her values clearly seem more at home with the likes of Timothy McVeigh and the Aryan Nations. It's time for all media to boycott her, and her sponsors, as a source of any commentary. She'll still have the right to free speech, but she will have to exercise it on her front lawn, screeching into a megaphone.
