Ann Coulter, in her latest column about who will win the Oscars and why, has completely lost her marbles. First up she admits that she hasn't watched any of the nominated films, then she proceeds to site a range of reasons that they will win; reasons ranging from race (crash), sexual preference (Brokeback Mountain), political critique (Goodnight and Good luck)... she even sites anti-anti-Semitism (Munich) at times. So Ann Coulter doesn't like gays, foreigners or talk of the holocaust. You'd think you could therefore write her off as just another nutter. But not so. Ann is still asked to give speeches at conservative functions; she still pops up as a pundit on television from time to time; and she still has a large readership on her blog. At least Ann Coulter, through speaking what's really on her mind, shows us that these views aren't as far out of the mainstream as we'd like to think.
God forbid that a movie about homosexual love be judged as good in its own right (which it is); and god forbid that a film about the insane political machinations of McCarthy (an issue that must hit close to home for Coulter given its close parallels with what’s going on in the world today) be an Oscar contender, because, well, it is a good film.
