Appetizer

When was the last time you were surprised?

About five minutes ago when I walked into my house, sat down to read my e-mails, and saw that Ann Coulter once again opened her insensitive, bigoted mouth. You might think that, given my profession, I would not be surprised by such behavior. But the opposite is true: Just when I think I’ve heard it all . . .

Coulter draws fire over remarks about Jews

Conservative author offends CNBC host Donny Deutsch with comment

From CNBC and MSNBC

Oct. 11, 2007

Conservative author Ann Coulter finds herself in the middle of a firestorm once again after remarks on a CNBC television show in which she said Jews need “to be perfected” and suggested the nation would be better off if it were all-Christian.

Appearing on “The Big Idea” with host Donny Deutsch on Monday, she said Christians were tolerant of racial diversity but that it “would be a lot easier” for Jews if they were to become Christians.

Deutsch, who described himself as a practicing Jew on the show, was clearly dismayed by the remarks, which he called “hateful” and “antisemitic,” according to a transcript published on the Web by Editor and Publisher.


In her defense, Coulter apologized for the remarks and said they were misinterpreted.

“I don’t think you should take it that way (as offensive), but that is what Christians consider themselves: perfected Jews. We believe the Old Testament,” she said.

Deutsch told Adweek magazine that he had invited Coulter on to discuss her “brand strategy” but that the topic drifted into politics. After Deutsch was offended by Coulter’s remarks, he said, “I think she got frightened that maybe she had crossed a line, that this was maybe a faux pas of great proportions.”

After the comments were made on the late-night cable show, they were picked up by several online magazines and began gaining momentum in the blogosphere.

Coulter has a history of making inflammatory remarks on Deutsch’s show and elsewhere.

Last year she told Deutsch that former President Bill Clinton showed “some level of latent homosexuality” and then followed it up by telling Chris Matthews on MSNBC that former Vice President Al Gore was a “total fag.”

In one of her books she lashed out at 9/11 widows, saying, “I’ve never seen people enjoying their husbands’ deaths so much.”

  1. Terrific salad… love that name! Your soup makes me feel bad for whining about having to wear reading glasses. Thanks for the reminder that I just need to be more thankful!

    I passed on the appetizer as I just refuse to listen to her or read about her or acknowledge her comments in any way. I see or hear the name and I am outta there!

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Jellyroll Janie is such a cute name and I could imagine how adorable she looks like.

    I haven’t tried water aerobics before but it’s very interesting.

  3. Amanda Short

    Kind of unusual expression of Ann. I wonder if she really thinks before she opens her mouth.

  8. A good feast. Ann Coulter seems to be able to get on the wrong side of alot of people lol. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Ann Coulter is disgusting. I’m Catholic and I certainly don’t think of myself — or anyone — as a “perfected Jew”. Unbelievable!

  10. I loved your feast. I wish my eyes were okay too. My work has taken its toll on my eyes :(Happy weekend!

  11. Is Ann Coulter for real? How can anybody that racist be credible? Why do they even allow her to open her mouth?
