In 1992 they told the joke that if the world ended the New York Times would say World to End, the Wall Street Journal would say World to End; Markets Close Early and the Washington Post would say World to End; Women and Children Hurt Worst.

Today they would add Ann Coulter would say World to End; Liberals' Fault; Women Pretend to be Worst Victims.

Coulter is not part of the 800-Top-Friends!, You-Like-Me;-You-Really-Like-Me!, How's My Yoga Position? culture. She is not an approval seeker.

Insulting 9/11 widows, JFK--"a venereal-disease-ridden sexual profligate and drug addict,"-- or single mothers on the ABC daytime talk show, the View, is what she does. Nor will she probably kiss babies on her new book tour.


For years media scholars have been baffled by Coulter's pursuit of the Bobby Fischer/ Marge Schott /Leona Helmsley World Congeniality Award.


Why would a woman who could practice law, model clothes, teach first grade--the kids would not call her Mommy by mistake--or deny health insurance claims for a living, want to be a right-wing piñata?


Battered by the left-wing, mainstream and even conservatives? Banished to gun 'n conspiracy web sites and late night UFO radio talk shows?


But just as baffling is media's "discovery" she's mean--as if it's a stylistic consideration instead of her Point. What was their first clue? That she says so?


"Where's your compassion," asked the View panelist Sherri Shepherd when Coulter criticized single mothers on the show in January. "Why aren't you out there helping young women," she pursued, appealing to Coulter's putative inner social worker.


"Why don't you come down on the fathers?" asked Elisabeth Hasselbeck with you're-blaming-the-victims-you-meanie indignation.
