But her act is deceptive. I will tell you what she is angry about. And it is not because she cannot challenge the Widows.
Firstly, Anne "I Hate My Mother" Coulter is angry because suddenly she cannot ATTACK the Widows. Because she cannot BELITTLE them. Anne "I Cannot Physically Speak Without Spewing Bile" Coulter is upset because she cannot SLANDER the widows; that she cannot DEMONIZE them.
Because you know what? I can challenge them. I can challenge the widows if I want, and I never once have to worry about my conscience or a backlash. Because I would do it respectfully. But Anne "Still A Screaming Child" is psychologically incapable of a respectful confrontation. That is what her issue is, but she blames it on the Widows.
This is the second part of Ms. Coulter's fury: she is seriously damaged goods. And on some level, this upsets her. Because she still does have a heart, even if it has been hurt badly at some point her past.
This crippled heart of Coulter's is writhing, fuming, spitting at itself. Faced with its own heavy-handed curse --The Claw That Can't Uncurl --it is raging. No longer can Coulter pretend she is a fierce, truthful soldier of the Right. She must see, at least for a moment, that she is but a cruel tyrant, exacting the same kind of abuse on others that was probably heaped upon herself at one time ( I'm sorry for assuming; how else does one become so inured to the suffering of others? Why else would someone make "weakness" a loathed object of obsessive attention and hate but for the fact that their own perceived weakness has proven damaging to themselves?) And this image is not "ego-syntonic," as is said in the field. This image paints herself as the Bad Guy.
She directs this anger not at her own condition, of course, but at the messenger of her realization. She calls it the "Left's Doctrine of Infallability." But a better title would be, "Anne's Self-Prison of Inhumanity."
