In the latest installment of The Atlantic Wire’s Media Diet series, Ann Coulter discusses what she reads each day. Most of the time, people take Media Diet at least semi-seriously and that’s what makes it interesting – it’s fun to know what people you admire or read, read themselves. But this is Coulter – a person who thinks women shouldn’t be allowed to vote, that terrorists are always Muslim and so on – so naturally she takes a different route.
Coulter explains that she reads Newsmax, Drudge and the “Treason Times,” because that’s a funny way to describe The New York Times if you’re 12, and says she begins her days like this:
When I first wake up, I don’t open my eyes right away so I can read the backs of my eyelids, which say on the right one: ‘God is Republican’ and the left: ‘Christie 2012.’ Second, I turn on MSNBC because there’s nothing like a good belly laugh to start your day, then Fox News, to make sure Obama hasn’t issued an executive order banning it yet.
Maybe this section of her Media Diet would be funny if there wasn’t a small part of us that actually believes she has that inked inside her eyelids.
