Coulter: Kerry is just as "crazy" as Gore
Following right-wing pundits' serial "diagnoses " of former Vice President Al Gore as mentally ill  (in the wake of Gore's May 26 speech  about the Bush administration's Iraq policy), FOX News Channel co-host Sean Hannity and his June 14 guest, right-wing pundit Ann Coulter , once again  purported to assess Gore's psychiatric state -- with Coulter then extending that assessment to Senator John Kerry. Hannity said Gore was "coming unhinged"; and Coulter repeatedly called Gore "nuts," adding that "Bill Clinton drove him [Gore] to this." Coulter also said Kerry "is as crazy as their [Democrats] last presidential candidate [Gore] was."
From the June 14 edition of FOX News Channel's Hannity & Colmes, co-hosted by Hannity and by Alan Colmes:
HANNITY: This man [Gore] has become an extremist, he's out of touch, he seems to be coming unhinged.
COULTER: Kerry has all these nuts coming out. I think Al Gore is nuts, and I think it would have been polite if you guys [Democrats] had told us that before you ran him for president.
COULTER: I can understand that Bill Clinton drove him [Gore] to this. At least he has a defense -- "I was in the White House with Bill Clinton, give me a break, I'm nuts."
COLMES: We [Democrats] are a big tent party. Not every Democrat walks in lockstep, or follows the talking points, or has the same style or says exactly the same thing.
COULTER: A big tent, so you're wrapping up the nut vote.
COULTER: The question I really want to know is when they [Democrats] will admit that their current presidential candidate [Kerry] is as crazy as their last presidential candidate [Gore] was?
