Gee, I don't know why anyone wouldn't fall over themselves to be gracious to a woman who belittles a 12 year old that nearly died, invades the family's privacy, and then lies about the family as well.
Maybe it's just because she was rude to her audience. From her own writing:
UW-Madison rivals Berkeley as the moonbattiest of university campuses. It’s the home of notorious Truther Kevin Barrett, impeachment zealots, and anti-military
recruiter thugs. No pies were thrown, but within 20 seconds of the start of my talk, an unhinged member shouted “Bullshit.” That was the response to my simple assertion that entry into this country is a privilege, not a right. After making the painstaking case for systemic reform and immigration enforcement, another student shouted out that I was “dumb fuck”–at which point I invited his fellow basket cases to go ahead and use the opportunity unleash any other epithets and ad hominem attacks they were dying to articulate. “RACIST!” they inveighed. Hope it provided some therapeutic benefits. My gracious CR hosts apologized profusely for their profane classmates. But the potty-mouthed fools only embarrassed themselves–and provided us with many comic moments. I really do feel very sorry for the parents paying for their “education.”
She's a regular Ann Coulter, isn't she?
