Ann Coulter Called Out By Special Olympics Athlete For Using the R-Word

You may have been on Twitter Monday night as I was, when Republican zealot in a tight black dress posted the offensive tweet directly following the debate between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.  Obviously, Coulter’s crass remark created a complete shitstorm rousing barrage of disapproval on the social network–and rightly so.

The Voice of Reason has spoken, though. In an eloquent and touching Open Letter to Ms. Coulter, a gentleman by the name of John Franklin Stephens gently and wisely calls the right-wing loudmouth out on her use of the R-Word.


Dear Ann Coulter,

Come on Ms. Coulter, you aren’t dumb and you aren’t shallow.  So why are you continually using a word like the R-word as an insult?

I’m a 30 year old man with Down syndrome who has struggled with the public’s perception that an intellectual disability means that I am dumb and shallow.  I am not either of those things, but I do process information more slowly than the rest of you.  In fact it has taken me all day to figure out how to respond to your use of the R-word last night.

I thought first of asking whether you meant to describe the President as someone who was bullied as a child by people like you, but rose above it to find a way to succeed in life as many of my fellow Special Olympians have.

Then I wondered if you meant to describe him as someone who has to struggle to be thoughtful about everything he says, as everyone else races from one snarkey sound bite to the next.

Finally, I wondered if you meant to degrade him as someone who is likely to receive bad health care, live in low grade housing with very little income and still manages to see life as a wonderful gift.

Because, Ms. Coulter, that is who we are – and much, much more.

After I saw your tweet, I realized you just wanted to belittle the President by linking him to people like me.  You assumed that people would understand and accept that being linked to someone like me is an insult and you assumed you could get away with it and still appear on TV.

I have to wonder if you considered other hateful words but recoiled from the backlash.

Well, Ms. Coulter, you, and society, need to learn that being compared to people like me should be considered a badge of honor.

No one overcomes more than we do and still loves life so much.

Come join us someday at Special Olympics.  See if you can walk away with your heart unchanged.

A friend you haven’t made yet,

What a perfectly lovely letter.  Still no apology from Ms. Coulter regarding her poor choice of words. Color me NOT SURPRISED.

Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey Fight During ‘American Idol’ Auditions – WHYYYYYYYYY

“WHYYYYYYY” is yet again part of the American vernacular!

If you were wondering how Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj would get along on ‘American Idol,’ wonder no more. The two divas got into an argument during the AI auditions in Charlotte, NC on Tuesday after they disagreed on one contestant’s performance. TMZ obtained a video of the blow up with Minaj cursing at Carey.



At one point Nicki walked off the set after Mariah kept taking jabs at her, says a source from Mouth To Ears says. Nicki’s manager and team urged her to come back, but after repeated shots were fired Mimi, Nicki left again after threatening to “knock her out.” The producers had to shut down production for the rest of day as they all cooled off. Keith Urban looks terrified being in between the two prima donnas, and I’m sure they are all rethinking being judges. The three were interviewed on my local Fox News Charlotte where they were all smiles, of course this was before s*** went down!

Nicki hasn’t made a statement, yet, but Mariah took to Twitter to let her feelings be known.

“WHYYYYYYYYY???” – Nancy Kerrigan AND Mariah Carey AND Cee Lo

The tweet is better if you read it in Nancy KerrigansWHYYYYYYYYYcry, or like the “WHY!?” Cee Lo  lets out in “F*** You.”


Jennifer Lopez Hogged William and Kate at BAFTA Gala in Los Angeles – You Don’t Say?!

The Death Claw as worn by JLo

Oh, thank the LORT.  Hallelujer.  I don’t have to release my pitbull grip I have on the hot mess that was JLo shoving her fat ass (COUGHIShouldTalkCOUGH) into Every. GeeDee. Photo. at the BAFTA Gala held last week in Los Angeles when William and Kate were in town.  This is all KINDS of juicy, but first let me get this off my chest:

I just cannot LET. IT. GO.  I’ve waited a week…and I still just can’t. CAN’T. WON’T. REFUSE TO!  That gotdamn dress.  What the gotdamnHELL was Hugh Jass wearing during the BAFTA GALA last Saturday night?  I’ll tell you exactly what is was:  A Size Jumbo (I should know) Sausage Casing made special for her meaty ass by Emilio Pucci at the slaughterhouse in the scary part of town.

Okay.  Now.  Here’s where it gets GOOOOD.



People Magazine is blabbing something rather delicious (which is shocking for their usual suck-up-ness).  Get a load of what Mary-Louise Parker had to say about Hugh Jass JLo:


I have a newfound respect for Mary-Louise Parker. BOOM.

“I didn’t meet them. I was shoved out of the way by Jennifer Lopez. Uh oh, I shouldn’t have said that.”

OhhhhhGYAAAAHthatwasawesome. (All one word.)  What she really meant was what Clairee from my beloved Steel Magnolias said about that big-assed wedding guest at Shelby’s weddin’:

Looks like two pigs wrestlin’ under a blanket.”


JLo, aka "Two Pigs Wrestlin' Under a Blanket" at the Royal BAFTA Gala

Daaaaaang.  Never underestimate the power of a sharp-tongued white chick who was shoved outta the way of meeting the Royals.  Just sayin’.
