Doesn't she have a JD? I'm trying to make sense of Ann Coulter's argument here:
"The left is trying to co-opt gays," she said. "They should be on our side. We watched this for 30 years. The left keeps using one group after another to destroy the family. That is their goal, to destroy the family. Liberals want the family destroyed. Then you have loyalty directly to the state."
If gays and the left destroy the family, then how would the left "co-opt" us? If gays are bad because of this family destruction, what would the right want to do with us? Does she think that gays should go all Moral Values and make families she approves of? If she does, then how are liberals, who support same-sex marriage more than conservatives, the ones destroying the family? And if we want to destroy the family with the left, why should we be on their "side"? Wouldn't we be happy where we are?
It's hard to believe that it's been just a few short years since anybody who was anybody considered this woman smart. It was always, Even if you don't agree with her, you have to admit.... But, no, I don't think the Serious People understood that she was simply putting on an act for money, which takes one form of smart, but it's not the same as someone who has brilliant ideas, out-there ideas. Her ideas were stupid and they still are, but keeping her act fresh in that narrow ideological context produces gibberish like the quotation above.
