Fail Quote #2: Coulter wants gays to align with the Right

Ann Coulter speaking at CPAC (02/12/11)

This is one of those days that just seems to be drowning in stupidity wherever I look. Which, I guess, makes it fitting that there be more than one Fail Quote post for the day. This time, from Ann Coulter, spreading some more nonsense at CPAC:

"The left is trying to co-opt gays," she said. "They should be on our side."

You probably shouldn’t have been eating or drinking anything while reading that.

Meanwhile, Ed Brayton over at Dispatches from the Culture Wars puts it rather plainly:

She said this at a conference that was missing all of the major religious right groups and leaders because they refused to attend a conference with gay people. A conference that will now reject sponsorship by gay conservative groups. And where the majority of people are against any action that gives anything approaching equality to gays. Oh yeah, gays should be flocking to the right in droves.

’Course, I’d like to go one step further and declare that she’s out of her farking mind. But that relies upon the assumption that she has one to begin with, a claim that scientists may not be able to substantiate.
