Ann Coulter gets her name mentioned for calling out ticket punching pandering by the cast of thousands.

Punch my ISRAEL ticket. No, punch mine. My REAGAN ticket, punch it.
FUNDIES, I am tight with Fundies, here, punch this ticket. ...

What else did they say, and why is Ann Coulter a bad person for tweeting the truth?

Links, here, here and here. Coulter never has been politically correct, it is part of her shtick, but you have to go along with her saying there was a stage full of panderers, when not badgering one another about personal things, personal comments.

It was a pack of circus elephants, Coulter called it as she saw it, and to me, as it [likely] was. ["Likely" because while Coulter watched it, I declined that level of self hate - subjecting myself to an over-long tedium of cliche and ticket punching. Mortification of the mind, not the flesh, might make some feel virtuous or cleansed, but I would have been both bored yet hopping mad as I often am over cliche-ridden stupidity; just as Coulter properly reacted to a clear provocation, by collective mediocrity.]

Anon - Being largely unfamiliar with Coulter, other than seeing a thing or two from the past, she does appear to reach to provoke, if not to offend. Also, she has not been getting heavy attention/coverage this cycle, so she grabbed for a brass ring.

The opening deleted comment, in relevant part, stated:

Coulter has often said that she sets out to deliberately offend people, and offend she does. Coulter has no filters. Also bear in mind that Coulter is explicitly seeking the restoration of a WASP culture, one predominated by Western European (i.e., British) peoples. Jews and Israelis need not apply.

A few background things. DO NOT SUBMIT COMMENTS WITH HOT LINKS. ESPECIALLY ONES WITH COMPRESSED LINKS RATHER THAN ACTUAL SITE LINKS. ESPECIALLY NOW, TO WORDPRESS LINKS BECAUSE THERE HAS BEEN A RECENT MALWARE PROBLEM WITH WORDPRESS SITES.

The comment itself was not only inocuous, but helpful. Whether the link was problematic or not; I cannot say. It was deleted. Relevant comment, in toto, absent the link, is presented in this comment.

AGAIN, DO NOT SUBMIT COMMENTS WITH HOT LINKS. PLEASE. AS A COURTESY TO CRABGRASS READERS - FOR THE ABOVE SITUATION, FOR EXAMPLE, SUGGEST READERS DO A WEB SEARCH = Essay: “Ann Coulter’s Jewish Roots” RATHER THAN SUBMITTING A HOT LINK.
