She appeared on CNBC's Danny Deutch (sp?) "Big Idea" show and shared her warped view of Christianity vis a vis Judaism. As usual she says the most patently offensive statements and then pretends that they're "fact." Deutch didn't take kindly to her definition of Christians as "perfected Jews" or her urging Jews (such as Deutch, I believe) to "get perfected."

COULTER: No, we think -- we just want Jews to be perfected, as they say. DEUTSCH: Wow, you didn't really say that, did you?

I had this at the beginning of the week, but couldn't get to it. Media Matters has the transcript...Her book is in the tank so you'd expect her to be idiotic, but her antisemitism really surprised Donny. And while Meridith Vieira finally says something this morning that needs to be said: Vieira: "So you're saying she should not be allowed on the air?" And admitted the media are all enablers: Vieira: "Of course we are. We're perpetuating it." She must have forgotten that The TODAY Show had Coulter on as an analyst last week. Meridith didn't even blink an eye when Coulter was giddy over the thought that Giuliani was crazy enough to bomb Iran. (transcript below the fold) Sarah Wheaton has a take.

DEUTSCH: That isn't what I said, but you said I should not -- we should just throw Judaism away and we should all be Christians, then, or --


DEUTSCH: Really?

COULTER: Well, it's a lot easier. It's kind of a fast track.

DEUTSCH: Really?

COULTER: Yeah. You have to obey.

DEUTSCH: You can't possibly believe that.


DEUTSCH: You can't possibly -- you're too educated, you can't -- you're like my friend in --

COULTER: Do you know what Christianity is? We believe your religion, but you have to obey.

DEUTSCH: No, no, no, but I mean --

COULTER: We have the fast-track program.

DEUTSCH: Why don't I put you with the head of Iran? I mean, come on. You can't believe that.

COULTER: The head of Iran is not a Christian.

DEUTSCH: No, but in fact, "Let's wipe Israel" --

COULTER: I don't know if you've been paying attention.

DEUTSCH: "Let's wipe Israel off the earth." I mean, what, no Jews?

COULTER: No, we think -- we just want Jews to be perfected, as they say.

DEUTSCH: Wow, you didn't really say that, did you?
