It's just Ann being Ann.

Now this is too fucking delicious for words:

Coulter Jokes to Reporter About Mailing White Powder to 'NY Times'

According to a published report, Ann Coulter has (in jest, we assume) claimed to have sent that mysterious white powder to The New York Times.

Reporter Jacob Bernstein, in a "Memo Pad" item in today's Women's Wear Daily, wrote that he received a message from a New York Times source saying that Friday's powder mailing -- which included an Xed-out Times editorial and what ended up being corn starch -- "makes all of Ann Coulter's comments a little less funny. I wonder if she considers herself at all responsible when lunatics read her columns and she says that we should be killed."

Coulter, whose column is distributed by Universal Press Syndicate, has "joked" that maybe terrorist Timothy McVeigh should have blown up the Times building and that maybe Times Executive Editor Bill Keller should be executed.

"Memo Pad" sent an e-mail to Coulter's AOL account and according to Bernstein, received a reply claiming that she was the sender of the mysterious powder.

"'So glad to hear that The New York Times got my letter and that your friend at the Times thinks I'm funny,' she wrote back. 'Good luck in journalism and please send me your home address so we can stay in touch, too.

So, Steve ... what's your take on this? You at all worried that Ann might know where you live? And you too, Joel. Got any juicy quotes for the liberal media?

I mean, it was only a few days ago that threatening people's well being was too reprehensible for words. I'm guessing the rules have suddenly changed.

I'm glad E&P published that tidbit. Of course, Coulter and the entire right-wing wankosphere will probably start targeting E&P as a result though.

I say we give 'em more targets. They can't threaten to kill everyone, can they?

These are the Rapture Right we're talking about here. Are you absolutely sure you want to give them any ideas?

Voter fraud, serial plagiarist, slanderer, death threats...she's developing the rap sheet of a noxious psycho aka neocon.

Isn't there a law against making threats even in jest, like the one at the airports saying that even joking about a bomb will have you segregated and grilled?
How does this woman get away with saying this stuff?
Does anyone know if she has a security detail, someone to guard her and/or her house while she threatens others?
