Ann Coulter appeared on CBS’s The Early Show this morning to promote her book Guilty: Liberal “Victims” and Their Assault on America. Among other things, she and Harry Smith engaged in an interesting exploration of the word sophomoric (of  or characteristic of a sophomore” and also “exhibiting great immaturity and lack of judgment”). Check it out (starts around 0:44):

Harry Smith: Here’s my problem. Because you try to be funny, because you have this sophomoric, simplistic kind of view of so many things, the points that should be taken seriously–this whole section on single motherhood would be, could be part of the American conversation right now–because you’re so goofy, who’s going to take you seriously?

Ann Coulter: Well, for one thing, um, I think any comedy writer will tell you sophomoric is New York Times code for funny, so I thank you for that. . . .



  1. Has anyone else noticed that Coulter, in addition to being a sophomoric moron, has an Adam’s apple? I’m just sayin’….
