Today’s knee-slapper from Ann Coulter:
Last Thursday was national "coming out" day.This Monday is national "disown your son" day.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) October 16, 2012
Oh, terribly droll. I’m certain the tens of thousands of youths who find themselves homeless after their families learn of their sexuality are laughing, too, assuming they don’t commit suicide first. Which I’m sure is comedy gold as well.
I wonder how long it’ll take before the usual excuses of “it was just a joke!” start popping up. Of course, humorous statements (regardless of whether or not they’re actually funny) shouldn’t be taken seriously; then again, neither should anything Coulter ever says. But it’s nonetheless interesting how being a (terrible) comedian has become the new favored argument for claiming immunity from criticism after acting like a bigoted asshole.
