Ann Coulter tells it like it is!

And how it always has been in Amerikkka.

It is not my style to do that with the U.S.A., but sometimes it just 
fits.

WASHINGTON, 2 March 2005 — Arab bashing reached a new low in Washington 
last week when Ann Coulter, a loudmouthed, mean-spirited, pro-Bush 
columnist, decided to defend the White House press pass controversy 
over faux-reporter James Guckert (a.k.a. Jeff Gannon) by writing in her 
syndicated column: “Press passes can’t be that hard to come by if the 
White House allows that old Arab Helen Thomas to sit within yards of 
the president.”

Thomas, whose Hearst column is distributed by King Features Syndicate, 
is of Lebanese descent. The former United Press International reporter 
has been a journalist for nearly 60 years, and has covered every 
president since John F. Kennedy. She was the first female president of 
the White House Correspondents Association.

Even her syndicators realized the gaffe. When Coulter’s column was 
posted on Universal Press Syndicate’s (UPS) website, someone edited out 
the race-based slur “that old Arab Helen Thomas,” using instead: “that 
dyspeptic, old Helen Thomas.

But the “old Arab” reference still appears the column posted on 
Coulter’s website: www.anncoulter.com/cgi-local/article.cgi.

Coulter was, perhaps, taking a cue from the White House, which has 
slighted Thomas several times since 2003.

[Followed by a description of how the White House press conference is 
run by the Bush administration. If the White House press corps had any 
decency, they would protest the treatment of Thomas and carry signs 
saying: "We Are All Old Arabs!"]
