Coulter Feeling Like an Outkast in Connecticut

bzbb wrote up an interesting diary on Cindy Sheehan's visit to Uconn the other day. Given that it is crunch time for students across the nation I thought that I would give bzbb a little cover before coming back with a promissed diary on Anne Coulter's visit to Uconn. (Good luck in your exams, and essay efforts!)

Needless to say, Coulter wasted very little time going from zero to stupid:

STORRS, Connecticut (AP) -- Conservative columnist Ann Coulter cut short a speech at the University of Connecticut amid boos and jeers, and decided to hold a question-and-answer session instead.

"I love to engage in repartee with people who are stupider than I am," Coulter told the crowd of 2,600 Wednesday.

Before cutting off her speech after about 15 minutes, Coulter called Bill Clinton an "executive buffoon" who won the presidency only because Ross Perot took 19 percent of the vote.

Yep! Right into her GOP talking points without a moment to spare.

I said "Darling, you sound like a prostitute pursing"

It is pretty darn obvious that protesters left her feeling a little bit like an outkast in Connecticut:

Coulter's appearance prompted protests from several student groups. About 100 people rallied outside the auditorium where she spoke, saying she spread a message of intolerance.

"We encourage diverse opinion at UConn, but this is blatant hate speech," said Eric Knudsen, a 19-year-old sophomore journalism and social welfare major who heads campus group Students Against Hate.

It wasn't the first time Coulter has had trouble at a university speech. In October 2004, two men ran onstage and threw custard pies as she was giving a speech at the University of Arizona.

I know you'd like to thank your shit don't stank
But lean a little bit closer
See that roses really smell like boo-boo

Of course there were some there that were disgusted by this showing, but more likely because this is typically a republican type of reaction to a liberal:

UConn junior Kareem Mohni, 20, said he was disgusted by his peers' reaction to Coulter.

"It really appalled me that we're not able to come together as a group and listen to a different view in a respectful environment," Mohni said.

Get used to this type of reaction to people that spread hatred and spew thoughts that are designed to specifically divide America Kareem.

Aggressive Progressives don't put up with this kind of crap.

Don't you be looking at me crazy like ya want to
The game is over A.C. baby won't you
Just quit the contemplating cause
I'll box you in your muthafuckin mouth
