Ann Coulter has, once again, done what she does best: poke a stick in the cages of the liberal menagerie to rile up the beasts. This time she has done it with an all-out assault on soccer. Right in the middle of a World Cup in which the American team has done well enough to attract the attention of people who aren't sure of the difference between futbol and football, Ms. Coulter has gone and pooped on the pitch by writing, "Any growing interest in soccer can only be a sign of the nation's moral decay.

For those not attuned to such things, the right-wing media has spent much of the week jumping up and down about Attorney General Eric Holder's appearance on ABC-TV last Sunday morning. His offense? He dared suggest that there was a "racial component" from "some people" who have criticized him and President Barack Obama. Now, keep in mind that this was in the context of questions regarding the call to impeach President Obama by one-time Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and House Speaker John Boehner's insistence that his chamber sue Mr. Obama over executive authority in the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. And Mr. Holder also made clear that race wasn't necessarily the "main driver" but "for some there's a racial animus.

WASHINGTON -- Apparently, it's news that Ann Coulter is a nasty piece of work. I had rather thought that was the attraction, at least for those people who find her attractive. So forgive me for being mildly mystified by recent headlines about her most recent spasm of trash mouth, i.e., her attack on four women who lost their husbands in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. But then, the attack is vicious even by Ms. Coulter's standards: In her latest book, whose title you won't read here, she savages the widows as "self-obsessed" and "witches."

The Left's favorite world leader is Saddam Hussein. The legacy of court-ordered desegregation is "illiterate students knifing one another between acts of sodomy in the stairwell." New York Times publisher Arthur "Pinch" Sulzberger is a "traitor," Hillary Rodham Clinton an "abrasive harridan," and the Democratic party so corrupt it's on the verge of extinction. Her new best seller, Treason, is named for the crime of which she says "liberals" are guilty. Love her or hate her, never expect Ann Coulter to soft-pedal her views.

Ann Coulter has built a successful career out of giving voice to America's angry right. The author of five New York Times best-sellers since 1998-including Slander (2002), Treason (2003), and her latest whack at the political hornet's nest, Godless: The Church of Liberalism (Crown Forum), currently No. 4 on the New York Times nonfiction best-seller list. Coulter, a Universal Press Syndicate columnist who once practiced law, is well known for producing insults so outrageously offensive that they disturb even some conservatives.

Jessica Simpson. James Carville. Scott Donahoo. The Verizon "Can You Hear Me Now?" Guy. Annoying? To many folks, absolutely. But not irksome enough to get past the first round of The Sun's NCAA-style tournament aimed at picking America's most overexposed celebrity. More than 2,500 readers cast votes online in the first round, and second-round voting is under way. The biggest winners, or, more accurately, losers - those who are voted most annoying advance - were Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Donald Trump, Tom Cruise, Rosie O'Donnell and Ann Coulter, all of whom won in landslides.

I was all set to give this week's "Wile E. Coyote Anvil of Reason" award to Ann Coulter for naming her new book about liberals "Demonic" -- literally demonizing her opponents.  But then Wonkette went and posted this, wishing Trig Palin a "Happy Birfday. "       The classy people at Wonkette then had this to say about Trig:  "What’s he dreaming about? Nothing. He’s retarded. "  This post was so insanely distasteful that it outdid even Coulter's book title in earning the "Anvil of Reason" award, which as you know is given to that person in the news most needing a brutal dose of cartoonish enlightenment.  Wonkette's post has been so roundly condemned by sane people on both the right and the left that I don't really need to expand on their repudiations.  Let's just say I've never felt better about giving anyone an "Anvil of Reason" award as I do now. Wonkette's Jack Stuef, the author of the above despicable anti-Trig Palin post, is the most deserving clown to ever get this award.

Your editorial on the 50 t h anniversary of the March on Washington contains many historical and statistical distortions ( "Unfinished business," Aug. 27). The Birmingham march led by Martin Luther King in 1963 deserves righteous indignation, but the editorial overlooks the compelling case made by Ann Coulter in Demonic that the march was unnecessary and opposed even by staunch Birmingham supporters of the civil rights struggle. The struggle largely had been won in the courts and at the ballot box. Birmingham Police Chief Bull Conner, for example, had been voted out of office.

BOSTON -- I never actually got a black belt in combat journalism. A few years ago, in a misguided moment, I agreed to go on The O'Reilly Factor. Dashing out of the office to the studio, I literally ran into a glass door -- a glass door that had been there forever. I figured this was God's way of telling me not to mix it up with Bill. Since then, I've found less self-destructive ways of avoiding food-fight TV. But I too have yearned for someone to elbow the bullies off the bully pulpit.

Do you think it gives Clarence Thomas a warm, fuzzy feeling to know he is one of Ann Coulter's blacks? That is how Coulter put it on Fox "News" while defending Herman Cain against sexual harassment charges that threatened to engulf his campaign last week. "Liberals," she said, detest black conservatives, but the truth is, "our blacks are so much better than their blacks. " "Our" blacks? Really? Social conservative pundits tend to be astonishingly obtuse when discussing race (see Exhibit A, above)

One of the things that most annoys me about politics is how politicians and pundits personally attack, demagogue and demonize their opponents.  Well, Ann Coulter has dropped all pretense with her new book title. Openly (and literally) demonizing Democrats, she called her new book "Demonic: How the liberal mob is endangering America. "  I couldn't believe my eyes when first I saw this. Was this a joke? This had to be a joke, right? Sadly, it's all too real. This is a moment when punditry has come full circle and become a parody unto itself.  What's next for Coulter?

BOSTON - I'm not keen on the politics of destruction, let alone the language of destruction. If I hear about the "nuclear option" one more time, I think I will go ballistic. Nuclear warnings should be reserved for the real thing, like say, North Korea. It's not that I approve of the attempt by Republicans to change the rules. The filibuster was once lampooned as a weapon of obstruction. Now it's been revamped as a weapon of moderation, the one thing that makes a president stop and think about the wide appeal of a judicial candidate.
