In her first television appearance since the CPAC slur (she bailed on Paula Zahn tonight), Coulter ventures into friendly territory to "explain" herself. Colmes gets first crack and, of course, she dances around, downplaying it as just another example of her conservative "humor," and even goes so far as to say it's like "the old Soviet Union" because people are trying to silence her -- the standard (and laughable) Melanie Morgan/"I'm the victim" defense. As predicted, Hannity assumes the role of Apologist-in-Chief and deflects blame onto, who else, Democrats.
It's nice to see FOX being "fair and balanced" by countering Ann's right-wing lunacy with "former Democratic pollster" Pat Caddell, who just so happened to defend her at pretty much every turn.
John Amato: Malkin even attacked Coulter...
MM: Ann Coulter was here yesterday. She gave a very, mostly funny, speech, and at the end of it, dropped a stinker where she used the term "faggot." And I'm glad, I have to honestly say, I'm glad I didn't bring my children here because that's not the kind of language I would use.
...so it isn't only just emailers, but some of the "potty mouth base" of the party.
