This is one of the most interesting interviews done with Ann Coulter this year. It has nothing to do with politics. Instead, it centers around her love for the Grateful Dead. Yes, you heard right. Ann Coulter is an out of the closet Dead Head !!! Keep on truck’in Ann…

A must read if you are a Dead Head conservative or independent. Yes folks, they do exist.

When I called the Clare Booth Luce Policy Institute, whose chairwoman gives speeches on topics with titles like “The Failures of Feminism”, and told the gatekeeper there that I wanted to do an interview with Ann Coulter solely about the Grateful Dead, there was a small pause. Then she recovered and politely told me to send her an e-mail, which she would forward to Ann. That, I expected, would be the end of it.

When I got home that night, and saw an e-mail in my box from Ann Coulter, I thought “how polite of her to send a rejection letter rather than simply ignoring my proposal.” Instead, I found that she had somehow written “I’d love to! Good website!” While she was delayed by a round of speeches to make up due to strep throat, and other events life throws out, we kept shooting e-mails back and forth and I discovered a secret that I will reveal despite the damage to her reputation that it may cause: Ann is really cool and really funny. The few friends I talked with about this said “What? You of all people are getting along with Ann Coulter?!” It was easy and simple to do: we never talked policy. It was a joy talking with her, even if we don’t agree on everything (most politics, and “Alabama Getaway” sucks).

What followed was the most surreal interview I have ever done in my life. It involves smearing oneself with purple Crisco, Kanye (Ann’s a fan), slews of Reagan and Bush appointees leaving the Justice Department to go to Dead shows, lamentation for the neglected “Pride of Cucamonga,” getting inside info on the Monica Lewinsky scandal by being a Deadhead, and saying goodbye to Jerry in Golden Gate Park. Some of her answers WILL piss people off, but there’s no doubting her tie-dyed credentials – even if the dye is much more red than blue. Her latest book, Godless: The Church of Liberalism, was published earlier this month…
