Why Was Ann Coulter Given Control of U.S. Port Security?

I don't understand why the White House made a deal to give Ann Coulter control of security in six major U.S. ports. Putting the ports in the hands of someone who hates democracy just makes no sense to me. Even Tom Ridge said the White House needs to explain why the deal will not weaken national security.

A port security expert told CNN that fears the agreement will reduce U.S. security are based on Coulter's bigotry and political opportunism.

In a June 20, 2001, appearance on Hannity & Colmes, Coulter said: "God gave us the earth. We have dominion over the plants, the animals, the trees. God said, 'Earth is yours. Take it. Rape it. It's yours.'" If you have dominion over plants, animals, and trees, Ann Coulter, then how come I've destroyed more mice (7 of them) than you have in the past 5 years? She told Geraldo Rivera on August 2, 1999 that Bill Clinton "masturbates in the sinks."

And the White House wants this person to be in charge of port security in Baltimore, Miami, New Jersey, New Orleans, New York and Philadelphia?

Most of all, I'm concerned that port security would be controlled by someone who seems to hate our troops even more than the White House hates them. I remember that MSNBC fired Coulter after she told paralyzed veteran Bobby Muller, president of the Vietnam Veterans of America Foundation, "People like you caused us to lose that war." In a January 11, 2001, column, she called the Democrats "terrorists" (same word former Education Secretary Rod Paige used to describe the National Education Association -- but Paige so far has not commented on whether my vet with his nurses and needles and chromium examination table is also a terrorist organization).

So she hates democracy, hates the troops, and can't hold a job -- but we want her controlling port security in Baltimore, Miami, New Jersey, New Orleans, New York, and Philadelphia? What planet am I living on?

Excellent points all, Shimmy. If she's not available maybe Hannity is?

I haven't heard anyone else say this but if WMD were brought into the US and used as a direct result of UAE management of these ports, it wouldn't take long at all to nuke Dubai in response.

Jon--

I've concluded that we should hire hibakusha to decide what to do if Ann Coulter allowed WMD into the U.S. via the ports she's guarding.
