"I love to engage in repartee with people who are stupider than I am."
-- Ann Coulter, 12/7/05, cutting off her speech at the University of Connecticut when she was shouted down by hecklers. (CNN)
These far-left Nazis -- and that's what they are, okay? -- came in, not only insulted Miss Coulter, but violated the rights of the people who came to hear what she had to say. This is unacceptable on every level. And it's unacceptable to do what they do on their websites: to defame, to lie, to do whatever sleazy thing they can think of to people with whom they disagree.
--Bill O'Reilly, The O'Reilly Factor, 12/8/05
Bill is apparently unfamiliar with the following Coulter quotes, from Washington Monthly's The Wisdom of Ann Coulter
"[Clinton] masturbates in the sinks." ---Rivera Live 8/2/99
(I heard her spew this one on Politically Incorrect, too, and then vouch, "It's true!")
To a disabled Vietnam vet: "People like you caused us to lose that war."---MSNBC
"Women like Pamela Harriman and Patricia Duff are basically Anna Nicole Smith from the waist down. Let's just call it for what it is. They're whores."---Salon.com
On Princess Diana's death: "Her children knew she's sleeping with all these men. That just seems to me, it's the definition of 'not a good mother.' ... Is everyone just saying here that it's okay to ostentatiously have premarital sex in front of your children?" MSNBC 9/12/97
"Let's say I go out every night, I meet a guy and have sex with him. Good for me. I'm not married."---Rivera Live 6/7/00
"Anorexics never have boyfriends. ... That's one way to know you don't have anorexia, if you have a boyfriend."---Politically Incorrect 7/21/97
"I think [Whitewater]'s going to prevent the First Lady from running for Senate."---Rivera Live 3/12/99

"If you don't hate Clinton and the people who labored to keep him in office, you don't love your country."---George, 7/99
"The swing voters---I like to refer to them as the idiot voters because they don't have set philosophical principles. You're either a liberal or you're a conservative if you have an IQ above a toaster. "---Beyond the News, Fox News Channel, 6/4/00
"My libertarian friends are probably getting a little upset now but I think that's because they never appreciate the benefits of local fascism."---MSNBC 2/8/97
"You want to be careful not to become just a blowhard."---Washington Post 10/16/98
The National Radical has a great transcript of a Coulter appearance on Hardball when the usually-Republican-friendly Chris Matthews eviscerates her. She had named her book Treason, accusing the Democratic Party of the titular charge, but would not name a single person, despite Matthews' hammering, to support her "thesis." But she would never lie or defame someone with whom she disagrees.
