Coulter gets a lesson in hurling invective

Coulter gets a lesson in hurling invective
on

Ann Coulter has a reputation for being a smart mouth with a thorough contempt for civil discourse – and a bewildering disinterest in actual evidence. For example, this is what she says about climate change:

“There are more reputable scientists defending astrology than defending ‘global warming’.”

As if she would know ….

But for pure smartness of mouth, you gotta love Allan Rock, the former Liberal cabinet minister who now sits as the President of the University of Ottawa. Rock, in commenting on his concerns that Coulter was going to speak at his university, offered this, just-released assessment:

“Ann Coulter is a mean-spirited, small-minded, foul-mouthed poltroon. She is ‘the loud mouth that bespeaks the vacant mind.’

She is an ill-informed and deeply offensive shill for a profoundly shallow and ignorant view of the world. She is a malignancy on the body politic. She is a disgrace to the broadcasting industry and a leading example of the dramatic decline in the quality of public discourse in recent times.”

For the record.
