Steve Deace calls Ann Coulter a 'Hack of the Highest Order'

Have even conservatives finally grown tired of Ann Coulter? Conservative talk show host Steve Deace lit into Coulter, calling the right-wing pundit a “hack of the highest order,” on Michael Brown’s Line of Fire and again on his own talk show last night. Coulter’s relationship with the conservative movement soured after she joined the board of the gay conservative group GOProud, even though she regularly attacks gays and lesbians, and Deace told Brown that Christians who purchase Coulter’s book will are “probably going to have to give an account one day on why they wasted the revenue God gave them:

The commentator that probably has the least amount of credibility in America is Ann Coulter. I think a Christian that buys another one of her books or anything else that’s attached to her is probably going to have to give an account one day on why they wasted the revenue God gave them. She has undermined almost everything Christians say they believe for the last few years, including her recent joining of the board of GOProud, which is a pro-gay Republican group. I don’t know how else to put that, I don’t say this with joy and glee, I’m not playing roll out the barrel in the back as I’m telling your audience this Michael, but you asked me a blunt question and I’ll give you a blunt answer, and that is that the list of people I know in American politics who I’ve studied or interviewed or gotten to know who I think have less credibility and less integrity than Ann Coulter, regardless of their belief system, is a real short one. 

Last night on his own talk show, Deace said Coulter was “the least sincere, most dishonest person in American politics I know and have ever interviewed regardless of which side of the aisle they’re on,” hitting her for her endorsement of Mitt Romney:

I was on an interview, I was on Dr. Michael Brown’s show today, Line of Fire, and he was asking me about our book, We Won’t Get Fooled Again, and he brought up some of the people we’ve interviewed, just wanted to get my quick take on them after we did the interviews and he brought up Ann Coulter, and I said, bottom line, Ann Coulter is the least sincere, most dishonest person in American politics I know and have ever interviewed regardless of which side of the aisle they’re on. I just think she’s an absolute hack of the highest order, and just totally insincere. So [she and Romney] belong together.
