I can’t often be bothered to blog about the antic caperings of the various political punditti and pundettes in my native land, but every now and then something comes up that’s just so, so …!!!
I was browsing through Wonkette, as I sometimes do, and ran into this in the midst of a transcript of a recent “The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch” show. Ann Coulter was a guest, and Bill Clinton’s name came up —
Ms. 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?
Ms. COULTER: Yeah.
(snort) But wait, there’s more! Get this:
Ms. 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?
Ms. COULTER: No. It’s just random, is this obsession with his…
DEUTSCH: But where’s the — but where’s the homosexual part of that? I’m — once again, I’m speechless here.
Ms. 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.
Ms. COULTER: Right.
DEUTSCH: You could say nymphomaniac.
Ms. 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?
(eyeroll) That poor woman really needs to stay out of the psychological mode. (chuckle)
(And since when is nymphomaniac a term one applies to a male? [bemusement…])
[tags]Ann Coulter, Donny Deutsch, Bill Clinton, promiscuity, plainly someone’s missing the Freudian implications of her own statement…[/tags]
