Ann Coulter thinks so.

Ann Coulter and Casey Anthony

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter (you know, the one who hates World Trade Center widows) is at it again. This time, she's blaming Casey Anthony for the nation's economic crisis. Huh?

In her latest column, she says:

"Under Clinton, the entire federal government put massive pressure on banks to grant more mortgages to the poor and minorities. Clinton's secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Andrew Cuomo, investigated Fannie Mae for racial discrimination and proposed that 50% of Fannie Mae's and Freddie Mac's portfolio be made up of loans to low- to moderate-income borrowers by the year 2001.

"Instead of looking at 'outdated criteria,' such as the mortgage applicant's credit history and ability to make a down payment, banks were encouraged to consider nontraditional measures of credit-worthiness, such as having a good jump shot or having a missing child named 'Caylee.'"

Are you buying it?

Have you actually read the paragraph you quoted by Coulter? She’s being facetious. This article is a waste of time.

What the hell does she mean by “have a good jump shot?”

Tired of this stupid, old song…try some facts for a change:

“According to the statistics, whites form the largest racial group on welfare; half of all welfare recipients leave in the first two years; and teenagers form less than 8 percent of all welfare mothers.”

Oh YES…it’s the POOR AND MINORITIES who’ve also been stealing from us and giving themselves BONUSES while telling us to bail them out of $700 BILLION, right?

Are you gonna talk about THAT?

Of course not…you guys never focus on the REAL issues.

I suppose you’ll be blaming the migrant strawberry pickers for the rest of Wall Street’s woes and this stupid war, right?
