So, it appears that Ann Coulter is bubbling up all over the place again. I'm assuming you already know the details. Even if you don't, the details aren't really related to the point I'm trying to make.
People get angry -- people get very angry at the things she says.
Okay, sure, she says some heinous things. But isn't that her purpose, to provoke outrage?
What else does she have?
Ann is like the sensationalist news stories we obsessively follow and decry. In the media soup, Ann Coulter is the equivalent of a cop shooting his wife and children.
She keeps popping up in our culture because of a need for people to feel outrage.
Do any conservatives actually think she is any kind of worthwhile advocate for their views and values? If a conservative does like Coulter, is it for any reason other than she makes people (or as Ann would say, "liberals") angry?
So what do you do? How do you respond?
Probably the first step is to not get angry. That's really her only power over you and I. In her particular case, I believe ignoring her is the best course of action.
But before you get to the ignoring, check out this post of mine. She sounds pretty funny with a James Brown backbeat.
