Coulter appeared to call John McCain a "douchebag" during a discussion about flip-flopping and consistency among Republican presidential candidates. The audio cut out several times during her comments, and when the sound came back on, Coulter seemed surprised and asked, "What did I say, 'douchebag?'"
"Just blur it all out," Joe Scarborough interjected. "Okay, well they got the general drift of that," Coulter replied. This may be the craziest thing to happen on 'Morning Joe' since Mark Halperin called President Obama a "dick." Check out a clip of the moment from from Politico after the jump.
However, she recently amended that, claiming that Mike Huckabee, a former Republican governor and candidate for president, is in fact a genuine liberal Christian.
Annoyed that Coulter had slapped him with the scarlet "L" Huckabee confronted her on 'Huckabee' (Saturday, 8PM on Fox News), and listed his conservative bona fides.
"Nobody has been more of a proponent of traditional marriage, and of stable marriage, than me," Huckabee claimed. "Nobody has been more adamant about the fact that the government shouldn't be spending money that isn't their's -- and I was against the TARP bill ... I was against stimulus, I was against Obamacare."
"You have many excellent positions," conceded Coulter, but then insisted Huckabee would remain stuck in "liberal" Christian purgatory until he reevaluated his stance that foreign-born children of illegal immigrants should be given a path to citizenship.
"Any president," Coulter clarified, and then continued to say that this is the reason Palin shouldn't run for president, as the new position would come with a loss of influence.
Marc Lamont Hill then argued that a Palin presidential run would also surely come with a loss of an election. Coulter disagreed, saying she liked Palin's chances against Obama. Then she dropped this bit of wisdom:
"I do think she is very strong candidate. But I just think the question about whether she is running is something the media keeps talking about because if you mention Sarah Palin or Christine O'Donnell ... the hits on your web page go through the roof," Coulter explained.
Well Ms. Coulter, that may be the most outrageous thing you've said to date! Just kidding, you've got us pegged.
"Yeah ... I like the show, it's a great show," Coulter said. "Instead of saying no immediately, I did consider it for thirty seconds because they pay a lot of money to be on 'Dancing With the Stars' -- I can see how they get great people to do it, -- but it's not for me.
The premise of the pilot for 'Wright vs. Wrong' is that Debra plays Evelyn Wright, a strong-minded, ambitious political personality who espouses the conservative, right-wing agenda. However, while she has this tough, conservative personality for the public, behind the scenes she's consumed by her foibles and flaws.
So she's half-Grace Adler, the flawed, foibled part. Grace's politics, at least what she tried to articulate in her goofy way, was of the liberal lefty variety.
It might sound like the world's most lopsided episode of Celebrity Deathmatch, but the world's most famous pot comedy duo squared off against the famed conservative pundit on Rivera's "Geraldo at Large" show recently to discuss the opening of the country's first cannibus club in Portland, Oregon and the legalization of marijuana. Despite the craziness of the casting, they actually have a very frank, civilized and enlightening discussion on the subject.
I will say this, though: Ann Coulter has one of the most annoying voices on TV right now. It's hard to listen to what she's saying, because her whiny voice is so distracting. Sometimes when I'm just listening to her but not watching her, I almost expect to look over at the TV and see a cartoon character droning on about ... whatever.
I don't watch Saturday Night Live regularly, but surely someone must have spoofed her by now. With her nasal voice, hair fixation, and political opinions, she's like a skit waiting to happen.
Aside from their political views, what other commentators just bug the heck out of you? (Yes, I realize I'm going to be in the eye of the storm here; keep it as clean as possible!)
There used to be a lot of TV shows on overnight that were worth watching. I don't mean repeats of sitcoms or dramas that usually air earlier, but original programming geared towards the night owl. There aren't many shows like that anymore, but there's one on Fox News (yes, Fox News) at 3 AM and it's well worth catching (if you're worried about staying up that late, well, that's why God put DVRs on this Earth).
If I had to describe Red Eye it would be like this: it's a mix of Politically Incorrect and The McLaughlin Group, only for people who are up late at night drinking or eating too much junk food, with a host who comes at things from a conservative viewpoint but it's not really a political show. They go more for the jokes than they stress any ideology, and it's actually really funny. Like The Daily Show or The Colbert Report, it can't be easy to write a show that's on every single night, but host Greg Gutfeld pulls it off.
The man has been nominated a staggering 21 times for his late night talk shows and stand-up comedy specials and never won a single award, as many as soap star Suan Lucci's 21 (although she finally did snag one).
That number will probably keep growing since his show faces some stiff competition for a little gold statue. And despite my (and your) personal approvals and disagreements with the man's various opinions and philosophies, it's time he got something for his work.
Oh boy, I can already hear the fast and furious fingers of fury from the peanut gallery typing out angry, fiery, spittle flinging comments as I write this. Before you take up the torches and the pitchforks, hear me out.
I like these "Found Objects" videos that Harry Shearer has at My Damn Channel, even if I'm not surprised by what news people do behind the scenes and during commercial breaks. They fuss with their hair and clothes, they argue with staff, they rehearse segments. All the stuff you'd expect to find on videos like this. Of course, that's not to say that there's something mesmerizing about watching Ann Coulter chew Nicorette Gum.
That's one of the many things you'll see in this variety video after the jump. Coulter is waiting to be interviewed on one of the cable networks. You also see Bill O'Reilly looking into a mirror and sighing heavily because "Dave"couldn't get something right in the studio, Chris Matthews talking about a guest that's coming up, and more shots of Katie Couric and her clothes. There's also some footage from a woman I recognize but who's name escapes me at the moment (maybe from The Early Show?), but she urges us to remember that " 'synonymous' is not a good morning show word."
Whoa. Come on, Radar, that was below the belt. Nobody deserves to be compared to Mallard Fillmore. Although, I suppose The Half-Hour News Hour was kind of asking for a beating by even daring to even entertain the notion of a Limbaugh/Coulter White House.
Did any of our readers happen to catch this exchange (link to an MP3 file) between Adam Carolla and Ann Coulter on Carolla's radio show the other day? If we thought Ann Coulter was vicious, she may have met her match with Adam Carolla, who started their conversation by gently razing her for calling in an hour and a half late, and then hanging up on her after she tells him she's tight on time. He then tells his crew and the listening audience he "doesn't have time for bitches." Therein lies the difference between Adam Carolla and myself, because I always have time for bitches. According to The Great Society, Carolla offered an apology to Coulter the next day that really wasn't much of an apology. I don't have an audio link for that one, though.

In fact, Jay Leno was the one to try to call out Coulter on her caustic remarks on the "Jersey girls", the WTC widows who forced the creation of the 9/11 commission. He asked her why she had to use such extreme language when her point -- that Democrats trot out victims to keep people from arguing or objecting to their views -- would have been more effective if spoken rationally. Coulter just gave her canned remarks about liberals and Leno backed down. But at least I give him credit for asking. Too bad Carlin just decided to sit there. He must be getting soft in his old age.
[You can see some video of Coulter's entrance here, at least for today.]
I haven't watched The Tonight Show in a while. I much prefer David Letterman to Jay Leno anyway, but I find it a greater struggle to stay up past 11:35 PM to watch late night television. However, I wanted to watch The Tonight Show last night because both George Carlin, one of my favorite comedians, and Ann Coulter, who has been gathering much attention lately for her caustic commentary on the 9/11 widows, were going to be on the show. I thought there would be some major fireworks between Carlin and Coulter and would make for terrific television. I thought wrong.
