Person of the Day: Anne Coulter

| Thu Mar. 8, 2007 4:00 AM EST

ANNE COULTER, key performer in the Gestapo USO. Responsible for remarks so infantile and low as to make the GOP cringe but not complain...until this week. Nice to see them reach their limit with her. Here's a mini Coulter-fest:

About the 9/11 widows known as the Jersey Girls: "These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzis. These self-obsessed women seemed genuinely unaware that 9/11 was an attack on our nation and acted as if the terrorist attacks happened only to them...I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much."

Then, there was her crack about Muslims at last year's Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC): "I think our motto should be post-9/11, 'rag head talks tough, rag head faces consequences.'"

At CPAC on Thursday, in endorsing Republican presidential aspirant Mitt Romney, who needs more bad press like a hole in the head, she piped up with this one: "I was going to say something about John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word 'faggot.'"

Could it be that she is now past her time?
