Ann Coulter, whose casual racism has gotten her in hot water before, is back in full-throated form blaming the current financial crisis on minorities. In a column titled "The Gave Your Mortgage To A Less-Qualified Minority" Ann writes of Clinton-era laws designed to encourage recalcitrant banks to lend to minorities at rates concomitant with their credit reports that "banks were encouraged to consider nontraditional measures of credit-worthiness, such as having a good jump shot or having a missing child named 'Caylee.'" People actually pay her for this shit, people. It's good to know that she knows how to bring Americans together during a crisis. [National Review, Ann Coulter]

I don't think she herself believes half the stuff she says. It's just insane. She says it to get people fired up.
