Ann Coulter says Bill Clinton is gay because he has a lot of sex with women.

Here are the excerpts that are relevant, because the transcript I linked to includes a whole lot of Ann's interviewer going "Bu... wha... I... huh?" and a lot of Ann trying to change the subject, possibly because she realizes that what she said made less than no sense, possibly because whatever is wrong with her brain is progressive and has given her the attention span of a tsetse fly:*

COULTER: I think that sort of rampant promiscuity does show some level of latent homosexuality.
DEUTSCH: OK, I think you need to say that again. That Bill Clinton, you think on some level, has — is a latent homosexual, is that what you’re saying?
COULTER: Yeah. I mean, not sort of just completely anonymous — I don’t know if you read the Starr report, the rest of us were glued to it, I have many passages memorized. No, there was more plot and dialogue in a porno movie...
DEUTSCH: OK. No, no. Here’s a — here’s... a former president of the United States, and just saying, `You know what? I think he has latent homosexual tendencies.’
COULTER: No. I think anyone with that level of promiscuity where, you know, you — I mean, he didn’t know Monica’s name until their sixth sexual encounter. There is something that is — that is of the bathhouse about that.
DEUTSCH: But what is the homosexual — that’s — you could say somebody who maybe doesn’t celebrate women the way he should or just is that he’s a hound dog?
COULTER: It’s reminiscent of a bathhouse. It’s just this obsession with your own — with your own essence.
DEUTSCH: But why is that homosexual? You could say narcissistic.
DEUTSCH: You could say nymphomaniac.
COULTER: Well, there is something narcissistic about homosexuality. Right? Because you’re in love with someone who looks like you. I’m not breaking new territory here, why are you looking at me like that?


*I'm not sure whether a tsetse fly's attention span would be any shorter than a regular house fly's, but it's more fun to say for sure.

This seems to imply that she associates any promiscuous behavior with homosexuality ("it has something about the bathhouse"). what?! She's pretty skewed if she thinks that all (true)heteros are by definition and nature monogamous and timid in their sex pursuits. And no homosexuals participate in committed relationships; never mind that fight for the right to marry. WTF?

P.J. O'Rourke: "Gays want to get married, have children, and go to church. Next they'll be advocating school vouchers, boycotting HBO, and voting Republican."

Honestly, I think she comes right out and says it - she acknowledges that it's the "promiscuity" (with females!) that makes her think Clinton is gay.

Idiot bitch.

I admire your fortitude for being able to delve that much into the interview. I can't even watch her walk out on stage on those entertainment shows before I have to leave the room.

Oh, you give me too much credit. :) I actually took that from the transcript here - I don't think I've managed to see her utter six sentences, cumulative. I can't take it either.
