Ann Coulter is decidedly not worth our time

I've often had mixed feelings in the past about columnist Coulter, who's made a name for herself with plenty of firestorm statements. But this time, I think she has gone overboard for no good reason:
Right-wing commentator Ann Coulter's rant about "f---king Jews" was "misunderstood," she claimed in a Daily Beast interview late Thursday, as she denied that the remarks reinforce anti-Semitic stereotypes.

"I think it was ripped out of context and lied about," Coulter stated. "Anyone following any of the debate in America knew exactly what I was talking about… My tweet was about Republicans and the pandering. It wasn’t about Israel, it wasn’t about Jews. It’s what Republicans are thinking in their little pea brains."
What about hers? She's not thinking any deeper. She's only digging to that point:
Coulter then dug herself deeper, taking a shot at Evangelical Christians.

"I could say the same thing about Evangelicals," she said. "Who are you pandering to? A lot of it is to Sheldon Adelson and the Evangelicals…this kind of suck-uppery is humiliating.”

"There is no doubt that the Republican Party is the party of Israel and of Life," she added. "So why keep sucking up on Israel?”
What's so wrong with Adelson? Nobody's saying he's a saint, but compared with Soros, he's peanuts. Adelson's done plenty to help Israel, and if Coulter were really pro-Israel, she wouldn't be targeting people like him. "Sucking up" doesn't help either.
When asked whether her remarks could perpetuate the idea that Jews "run Hollywood" or the media, Coulter admitted: “Well, this episode is not going a long way to disprove that.”

Coulter then took cheap shots at Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, oddly choosing to link his policies with the US's illegal immigration issues.

"I’d like to move Israel to the northern border of Mexico, and see what happens then," she said. "These Republicans say fences don’t work - I’d like to see some of them explain Netanyahu’s policy on the fence.”

Even before her attempted explanations, Coulter's remarks sparked a stream of support from anti-Semites, including Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
Honestly, her defense is boggling and not very comprehensive. So, it's just no use, I can't see Coulter as somebody to support anymore.
