Bigots don’t necessarily take vows of poverty

Screenshot: Fusion TV Ann Coulter is one of those right wing demagogues with a high public profile who attracts a strange sort of – almost what you’d call a defense of her – that she’s just in it for the money!

The sexism that really sucks

I was working on a project today that required me to research powerfully influential Arizona Republicans.
