[quote]I don't see how this is an argument. You can probably just google "stupid/obnoxious shite said/written by Ann Coulter" and you'll fairly quickly come to the conclusion that she's just a clever windbag who likes stirring the pot. She's as sanctimonious as Ingraham, too, btw.[/quote][quote]She j...
