Ann Coulter made some totally rational and well-founded comments about body image at this weekend's Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington.
Just kidding. This is ridic.
As part of her speech on Friday at a Marriott hotel, Coulter stated that if you ever notice an attractive woman, you should keep ogling and check for her "NEWT 2012" button, because obviously, she must be a Republican.
Coulter made the following remarks when a female audience member asked a question about how to be both a female and a conservative:
"I think all real females are right-wingers, and I can tell you that based on experience -- and my bodyguard will back me up on this -- all pretty girls are right-wingers."
"A pretty girl is walking toward your table, you know she's a fan."
But relax, ladies, being pretty doesn't totally go to waste! If you're hot, you can nab a date with a man and trade that pesky wage gap for a free dinner, as Coulter remarks while opining that feminism has "set women back":
"And I'll take 69 cents on the dollar, or whatever the current feminist myth is about how much we make, just to never have to pay for dinner. That seems like a fair deal to me."
It's not like we're shocked to hear this kind of vitriol from Coulter, as she's no vocal champion of a feminist take on body image; she once called Princess Diana an "anorexic, bulimic narcissist" and implied that women who dress provocatively were inviting assault.
Coulter's CPAC remarks also provoked controversy on other topics, especially when she compared President Obama to Flavor Flav. She also referenced criticism that Mitt Romney is seen as "square," arguing, "Hip has nearly wrecked the country. Let's try square for awhile."
