The problem with the MRC's silence is that because it's been so close to Coulter in the past, they have ownership in her anti-Semitic remarks. In this case, silence can only be interpreted as assent.
By any reasonable standard of what constitutes acceptable public discourse, Donald Trump's presidential campaign should have ended on Wednesday at about 10:50 p.m. That's when he set his extravagantly sprayed hair on fire by indulging in some truly dangerous myths about vaccines.
Ms. Coulter outlines why she believes immigration to be America's greatest threat -- an idea that has been embraced by many leaders on the right, including current GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.
Ninety-five years ago today, we added an amendment to the U.S. Constitution saying that women have a right to vote in our elections. While today women's suffrage seems like a no-brainer to everyone -- except maybe Ann Coulter -- it was not an inevitability that simply fell into place.
As a political scientist, I am reluctant to make predictions about elections, especially about the behavior of a single individual. But I'm willing to make an exception this year, because the presidential campaign is turning out to be such an exceptionally crucial (and entertaining) one.
Watching the news these days is like watching a long-running soap opera. You can tune out for years, check back and discover that your favorite character is still dying or still having that baby.

In Entebbe on August 9, more than one hundred LGBT Ugandans celebrated the first Pride Uganda since the Constitutional Court overturned the draconian Anti-Homosexuality Act (AHA) for being passed without a quorum.
What would be exceptional is if we looked at our border crisis as a humanitarian situation, and we reflected on our responsibility for helping fuel it in the first place. If we looked at it from the broader standpoint of what is compassionate, as opposed to the more narrower one of what is legal.
Earlier this year, the Christian film "God's Not Dead," was released. It was an indictment of academia, liberalism, and some business people, but as the Ebola crisis unfolded in West Africa and in nearby Atlanta, maybe those who attack Christianity aren't who we think they are.
The coverage of the Ebola outbreak is a window into how ill-informed we are about disease, geography and culture. It reinforces stereotypes of Africa as a "country," in which medieval African villagers unwittingly spread medieval Third World diseases into First World spaces.
