Since talk show host Rush Limbaugh received so much attention after calling law student and birth control mandate activist Sandra Fluke a slut, conservative columnist Ann Coulter has decided to try and one up him.
Not only is Fluke a slut, but she’s a “hysterical drama queen,” too. Just like the rest of the liberals in the country.
“Fluke is the latest in a long line of my absolute favorite liberal typology: hysterical drama queens,” Coulter writes. “From Murphy Brown to the Jersey Girls, Cindy Sheehan, Joe Wilson and the New School’s Jean Rohe, these fantasists inject themselves into a boiling-hot public debate and then claim victim status when anyone criticizes them.”
Coulter’s bizarre diatribe of a column steps past her usual litany of flame-throwing and name calling to unironically insist that if she didn’t want to be called names, she shouldn’t have stepped into the limelight in the first place. “As a result of the huge commotion the Democrats’ made of Fluke’s ‘testimony,’ she was ridiculed the same way people in ridiculous situations often are. She was called some mean names: ‘slut,’ ‘prostitute,’ ‘law student.’”
In fact, Coulter then goes on to state that Fluke got exactly what she wanted, and that she obviously liked it. “Fluke seems to be holding up wonderfully under the nightmare of constant TV appearances. In fact, if I didn’t know better, I’d think she’s enjoying herself tremendously.”
Hmmm….attack, blame the victim, then say she wanted it? Where have we seen that before?
