Delving into the mind of a political provocateur

By Corey Robin

Everyone's going after Ann Coulter - and rightly so - for her racist comments on the "Hannity" show. Asked why liberals and Democrats are up in arms over the sexual harassment allegations that have been levelled against GOP candidate Herman Cain, Coulter said: "Our blacks are so much better than their blacks. To become a black Republican, you don't just roll into it. You're not going with the flow…"

That "our blacks" is especially gruesome. Sounds like the proprietary claim a fancy housewife would make, ca. 1960 (or 1860), about her black maid: "my girl" or something like that. But if you can suspend disbelief - or disgust - for a minute, there's something in what Coulter is saying that's worth paying attention to, for it unwittingly reveals a deep truth about conservatism. Not its racism, but something else.
