GOP Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) says Ann Coulter is her “hero”

Does she still think that? From the Star-Tribune:

Ann Coulter should be slightly less adorable today for Congresswoman Michele Bachmann.

“In the terms of modern presidency, Ronald Reagan has been a tremendous hero of mine, as has Ann Coulter. I just adore Ann Coulter,” Bachmann said in an April 2006 interview with

If the political provocateur has declined on Bachmann’s idolatry-meter since Coulter lobbed a slur in John Edwards’ direction, the Minnesota Republican was not confirming it.

The truly revealing and unfortunate thing about this is that Coulter’s slur drew laughter and applause above any gasps.

Dumpbachmann.blogspot.-com contributor Karl Bremer e-mailed me about the congresswoman’s quote of adoration.

Coulter’s comment brought condemnation from the left and the right. She’s not having it. In an appearance on “Hannity & Colmes,” Coulter said that the f-word “isn’t offensive to gays. … It’s a schoolyard taunt. …”

Why, I wonder, is an adult resorting to childish behavior?
