Ann Coulter marvelously smacked down Bill Maher on HBO's "Real Time" Friday evening.
After the host called the Tea Partiers Coulter speaks to "rubes," the conservative author smartly responded, "I do not talk to rubes except right here" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
BILL MAHER, HOST: I think the Teabaggers who are always…
ANN COULTER: Oh, please.
MAHER: …always ill-informed. I, when they, ’cause they’re gonna, they’re against raising the debt ceiling no matter what. I think they think that this is money we haven’t spent yet. I think that they need to be educated…
COULTER: No, we know perfectly well it’s been spent.
MAHER: You do.
COULTER: That’s why we want the debt ceiling.
MAHER: You do. Not the rubes you talk to. You know…
COULTER: I do not talk to rubes except right here.
As NewsBusters demonstrates on almost a weekly basis, one of the biggest rubes - and boobs - on television today is Maher.
Brava, Ann! Brava!
