When Ann Coulter decided to become a bigoted hate monger, she probably thought it would be all sunshine and roses. Sometimes, however, peddling hate has a way of backfiring.
As Hurricane Harvey continued to pummel Southeast Texas with thousands of lives still in flux, Ann Coulter tweeted out this anti-gay piece of ignorance:
I don't believe Hurricane Harvey is God's punishment for Houston electing a lesbian mayor. But that is more credible than "climate change." https://t.co/K7d7mopY5Q

Coulter’s bit of self-humiliation was aimed at Houston’s former three-term mayor, Democrat Annise Parker, the first openly gay mayor of a large American city.
Parker did the classy and responsible thing, not taking the bait while lives were still at risk. A few days later, however, Parker made Coulter look like the fool she is — far from the most difficult task, but an important one nonetheless. Well played, Mayor Parker:
Darn it, I thought no one knew I had a super power over weather. https://t.co/DTTfpiiTE5
