Tart? Tart.

Posted by: Hammer / 10:46 AM

The Strib reviews Ann Coulter's Saint Olaf show:
Columnist and author Ann Coulter, the tart-tongued conservative, waded into the adopted hometown of the late liberal U.S. Sen. Paul Wellstone, reeling off one-liners and exchanging sharp barbs with St. Olaf College students Sunday night.

Former President Bill Clinton is the first to have a presidential library with an adults-only section, she said during her 30-minute speech.

Coulter said liberals are "coalescing around the idea they didn't get their message out" as an excuse for losing the presidential election.

"I wonder why those 'I heart partial-birth abortion T-shirts' aren't working," she said sarcastically, implying that the Democrats' positions are not popular.

Her speech sharply, sometimes crudely, criticized many prominent Democrats from former President Jimmy Carter to Sen. Hillary Clinton to Sen. Ted Kennedy, whom she calls the "human dirigible."

"Howard Dean is chair of the DNC [Democratic National Committee], it just gets better and better," she said dryly.

The audience applauded loudly, with some yelling "Yea, Howard."

To which Coulter said, "Yep, you're never going to see the White House again."

Democrats don't understand evil, she said. To them, "the closest thing is someone who wears fur."

She called Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., the perfect presidential candidate for the Democrats because she is both a feminist and "learning disabled."

"If the Democrats want to get to the middle of the road, why are they clinging to Teddy Kennedy? Didn't he have trouble sticking to the middle of the road?" she said.

During a 30-minute question-and-answer period, the students treated Coulter's sarcasm in kind, criticizing the shortness of her skirt and inquiring as to the status of her virginity.

Coulter is touting her latest book, "How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must): The World According to Ann Coulter." Her usual speaking fee is $25,000, but St. Olaf officials either didn't know or were unwilling to say what she was paid. Dean of Students Greg Kneser said security was tight for the event given recent pie and salad-dressing throwing at conservative speakers.

It sounds like she just had nothing to say. It's like Don Rickles, without the craftsmanship. Ted Kennedy is fat! Ha ha. Barbara Boxer is retarded! Har de har har. Bill Clinton got a blow job! Bah ha ha!

As Tard Patch says, good for the Saint Olaf students to point out just a few of the hypocrises that define Ann Coulter.

I've got a feeling, too, that paying Coulter's "usual speaking fee" is like paying the sticker price on a used car. Good work if you can get it, but how many $25,000 appearances can you make while letting the public in for free?

One final thought. 56% of Americans are now traitorous, treasonous, Bush-hatin' bastards. How much will Coulter be charging when Bush's approval tumbles below 40?
