Many of her fans would later tell me it was her fearlessness they admired, her fully unburdened sense of outrage against liberalism, against anyone left of Joseph Mc Carthy (whom Coulter flattered in her best-selling book Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism).But in person, Coulter is more likely to offer jokes than fury. I wanted to see the rancor that allegedly is her sole contribution to public discourse (that and being a lying liar, in Al Frankens estimation, as well as a telebimbo [Salon] and a skank, according to a blog kept by Vanity Fairs James Wolcott). There are a lot of things that would make me blush.The tall blonde pundit told the New York Post that the rumor spreads every once in a while, but “it’s never been true.” The rumor spread again courtesy of Norman Lear, 94, the famed producer of progressive 1970s TV comedies like “All in the Family,” “The Jeffersons” and “Good Times,” on which Walker skyrocketed to fame for his “Dy-no-mite” catchphrase.In an Entertainment Weekly interview with “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris, Lear said that Walker, 69, dates Coulter.At Agitprop, we had to take a break from worrying about the far right and Bush's Operation Enduring War™ to worry about giant Japanese jellyfish.
Maybe it was the Muslim boyfriend she liked to brag about “dating” (euphemism) and to whom she dedicated one of her books. “I love him; he’s a wonderful guy,” Lear told Barris. According to Ann Coulter herself, it's a "no" -- but a gentle one. "The denial of a romance comes a few days after Norman Lear, who produced "Good Times," revealed he once went on a dinner date with the supposed couple."I love him; he's a wonderful guy, but I'll tell you something about him that'll astound you: He dates Ann Coulter," Lear, 94, told Entertainment Weekly.Probably the most persistent attacks aimed at Ann Coulter by her political opponents have contended that she is a post operative transexual who was born as a man.I intend in this piece to show that this contention is not supported by any firm evidence.Sure, she can call Molly Ivins a traitor and Evan Thomas, the son of Norman Thomas, even though his name is Evan Thomas, Jr.
