Well I never

This is old, but new to me: Ann Coulter is interviewed about her love of the Grateful Dead.

That's amazing.

Good to see Ann letting her freak flag fly.

I only read one of her books. I was sitting on an airplane laughing out loud the whole way. She had footnotes for everything. The Ann Coulter of myth, and the writer of books, seem to be two different people.

Hippies are anarchistic individualists. That translates into a sort of radical libertarianism when it is alchemized into any kind of political vision. Loving freedom more than anything, including money or power, is not a good fit with top-down statism that the Democrat Party has come to represent.

Still, I love the Ramones and the Sex Pistols and the Clash and I cannot understand the Dead, let alone like them.
