Anne Coulter Bashes Michelle Obama In New Book

Good feminist that I am I tried not to be giddy when Coulter had her jaw wired shut.  I know that it is wrong to laugh at the pain of others and yet I cannot help but wish that we had found a way to silence this woman.  Coulter is supposedly a "conservative" commentator but in fact she more like a solipsistic, opportunist who preys upon peoples prejudices to advance her career.

In her latest screed Michelle  and Barack Obama are the focus of her attention. According to the Daily News, she does not mince any words.

Lashing out at the President-elect's wife, Coulter wrote, "Her obvious imitation of Jackie O's style - the flipped-under hair, the sleeveless A-line dresses, the short strands of fake pearls - would have been laughable if done by anyone other than a media-designated saint."

Coulter said Cindy McCain, the wife of vanquished GOP nominee John McCain, "dressed well without freakishly imitating famous First Ladies in history."

Coulter facetiously and snidely refers to Michelle Obama as a "saint" and "Mother Teresa" and suggests that her public service career "advanced in lockstep with the political advancement of her husband."

In the book, Coulter repeatedly refers to the President-elect as "B. Hussein Obama" and complains that the media "literally wanted to have sex with him."

Right, Michelle Obama the saint.  Who the fuck is Coulter kidding? I love the way that she conveniently ignores the ways in which Michelle has been attacked. If Michelle is such a saint why was she referred to as angry, and as Baracks baby mama?  How about the cartoon depicting her being lynched?  Yeah the media has gone out of its way to uplift her and embrace her. Why was there a need to start a Michelle Obama Watch if the woman was considered an untouchable saint? 

Normally I ignore most of the mendacious blather that comes out that Coulters mouth however this particular screed is so rife with falsehood as the render the any reader unconscious with the stench of this shit. How many trees were destroyed so that this woman could spread her falsehoods to the world? Even as an e-book this slime would not be worth the bandwidth.

It never even occurred to the clueless Coulter that it was the vicious media attack that caused Michelle to be re-tooled.  She simply wasn't acceptable to the white bigots like Anne et al. All that Michelle has publicly stated that she wants to be is mom in chief and from this Coutler is more that happy to call her a Jackie O knock off.  Look Anne, Michelle did not seek that label, the fashion media assigned it to her while they were busy critiquing everything from the size of her ass to the shade of her lipstick. 

Coulter walks thorough the world oblivious of her privilege and the ways in which it informs her rants commentary. She has built her career on asserting said privilege and in the process creating the poor and bodies of colour as "other."  The woman is a female Rush Limbaugh with less sense than God gave cabbage.  The day that Anne becomes half the woman that suma cum laude Michelle Obama is I'll declare the world flat. 

H/T This Week With Barack Obama
