Politics and bat-shit-craziness aside, Ann Coulter is pretty hot. Would you believe she’ll be turning 52 later this year? She’s certainly not too old to spend a roaring night at a gay bar.
A best-selling author with over three million books sold, and a regular commentator on various television and news radio shows, there’s no denying Ms. Coulter’s charisma. Not to mention everyone knows gays love a strong career woman. Sure, she’s made some questionable fashion choices along the way (i.e. slinky cocktail dresses on morning news programs? Did she go right from the club to the studio?), but who hasn’t committed the occasional fashion faux pas?
In his memoir Blinded By The Right, journalist David Brock, a former conservative, dished about dragging the drunken Coulter from one gay bar to another, where they proceeded to pound back shots and scope about the cute guys. Now that’s the kind of behavior we expect from a diva.
Despite claiming to have many gay friends, Coulter is a vehement opponent of same-sex marriage and civil unions. In 2012 she said, “It’s genuinely a pro-marriage position to oppose gay marriage.” She was also against the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and in 2011 she went on the reality show A List Dallas and told her gay friend: “The gays have got to be pro-life… As soon as they find the gay gene, guess who the liberal yuppies are gonna start aborting?” If that wasn’t bad enough, last October, she proposed National Coming Out Day be followed by National “Disown Your Son Day.”
So, of course, the gay Republicans have embraced her. We, however, have not.
She is an anomaly that we can’t quite figure out. So fabulous, yet so, so — well — just plain wrong.
