Ann Coulter, Bimbo

Ann Coulter loves the words “bimbo,” “retarded,” “idiot,” “moron,” and similar words!

Is Coulter, by her own definition, a bimbo?

Bimbo

Simply put, Coulter loves to offend people[1] and, more importantly, she thinks she is smarter than[2] and superior to[3] everyone else. Everyone opposed to Coulter is, in her mind, a “useless idiot.”[4]

In Slander, Coulter asserted, “If liberal propaganda didn’t work, it would be impossible to comprehend bimbo starlets and uneducated slobs attacking the intelligence of the man who won the Cold War.”

(Ironically, Coulter now attacks those “idol-worshipping Ronald Reagan”[5] and laments, “These johnny-come-latelies to Reagan worship [who] seem to think that he was Jesus Christ and could do no wrong.”[6] Would that make Coulter a bimbo talking head?)

Coulter’s own propagandistic version[7] is to simply assert that everyone who disagrees with her is stupid, retarded, or a bimbo. Of course, Coulter’s ad hominem attacks actually work by shifting debates over substantive arguments to issues of free speech.

Coulter Proudly Calls Nikki Haley a Bimbo

A fascinating dialogue on the John Gibson Show[8] is instructive of Coulter’s temperament and Trumpian sense of self-importance. Asked if she was joking about deporting Gov. Nikki Haley, Coulter replied:

“Um, no. No, no, no, no. Yeah, [I think she should be deported]. Yeah, she won’t be governor anymore, I suspect.”

Then Coulter stepped on a linguistic landmine, as is her wont:

“I think she’s a bimbo and, um, you know, having a black Indian do such a fantastic job in a response to the State of the Union, yeah, they picked her to be, to be …”

At this point, Coulter was interrupted by the host, her decades-long friend from her MSNBC days in 1996-97. Gibson asked if her characterization was “kosher.”

Coulter erupted, “What do you mean, ‘kosher?’ Is it true or isn’t it? You’re policing my language? I’m saying something I think is true. I think she is a bimbo!”

Naturally, Coulter never explained how it is true – and the host never asked. (They rarely do.)

Irate at being, in her mind, censored by political correctness, Coulter petulantly queried, “What is that? Do we have to add that to the list of words that can’t be used now, because the list is getting bigger than the dictionary?” (Proper grace and decorum never seem to register with Ann.)

Going with the flow, Coulter then defined what a bimbo is rather than use the term: “Yeah, a not very bright female. Actually, they’re not always females but they often have those qualities, the feminine qualities.”

Notice, Coulter, as she is prone to do, includes liberal men in her definition and regards those qualities as distinctly feminine in nature.

Contemptuous of being asked not to engage in name-calling, Coulter again erupted, “You’re joking!” Continuing, Coulter immediately asked, “Can you email me a list of what words can’t be used?” Then she defiantly said, “Bimbo!”

Still not done, Coulter addressed the GOP’s decision to choose Haley to give a rebuttal to Obama’s State of the Union address. Coulter pondered, “It’s going to be hard to describe how she was chosen. She’s a, a, a, a woman who was accidentally elected, um, because she’s pretty and isn’t very bright. Can we say that?”

In other words, a bimbo. However, Coulter never explained why being a bimbo would be a qualification for that choice – or for anything, for that matter.

Continuing her rant, and incorporating her unisex definition of the word in dispute, Coulter lambasted South Carolinian Republicans, saying, “they have the worst representatives. … Lindsey Graham is South Carolina. … Lindsey Graham and Nikki Haley? Lindsey Graham – also a bimbo!”

(Whenever exchanges like this take place, Coulter is implacably impenitent.[9])

Is Ann Coulter a Bimbo?

As noted above, Coulter offered her preferred definition of “bimbo” – someone who is “pretty and isn’t very bright.” We can work with that.[10]

Remember, it’s been over a decade since Coulter so eloquently said, “I’m so pleased with my gender. We’re not that bright.”[11] Proof of Coulter’s contention regarding herself abounds![12]

Just a few weeks ago, Coulter claimed that the Great Depression[13] was “the most prosperous period in American history.”[14] Need I say more?

Consider, too, Coulter’s own self-revelation. In 2003, she admitted, “Ann Coulter engages in ad hominem attacks. Ann Coulter is insane.”[15] 13 years later, her long-time friend, Sean Hannity, finally reached the same conclusion, saying, “You crack me up, but you’re insane.”[16]
