"Well, you know, screw you! I'm not anti-gay. We're against gay marriage. I don't want gays to be discriminated against."
Uhhh. Wait. Against gay marriage. But doesn't want discrimination.
Which one is it, bubba?
"I don't know why all gays aren't Republican. I think we have the pro-gay positions, which is anti-crime and for tax cuts. Gays make a lot of money and they're victims of crime. No, they are! They should be with us."
Sometimes, I just... just don't know what to say. I guess I wasn't aware that gay people only cared about taxes and crime. Wow, kids, isn't that neat?!?
If Coulter truly is the face of contemporary conservatism and a touchstone for young Republicans, that's a sad statement about the continued political and social direction of this country. Wide-scale American ignorance. Cultural myopia. It scares me.
Nota bene: For a sane conservative's view of things, be sure to visit Andrew Sullivan's blog. Likely to be one of the few political recommendations I'll ever make here.
