Ann Coulter to Japan: “Radiation is good for you”

Ann Coulter

Good news everyone: the nuclear crisis in Japan isn't actually a problem! In fact, it may actually be a good thing, and lower your risk of cancer. At least that's what noted nuclear-physics expert Ann Coulter had to say on Bill O'Reilly last night. "Radiation is good for you," Coulter said. "With the terrible earthquake and resulting tsunami that have devastated Japan, the only good news is that anyone exposed to excess radiation from the nuclear power plants is now probably much less likely to get cancer." Right.

Even O'Reilly wasn't having any of Coulter's "nuclear spills prevent cancer" theory, and asked her, "So by your account, we should all be heading for the nuclear reactor [in Japan]," adding, "You have to be responsible," though it didn't do much to change her stance on the issue.

And thus, it's official: Ann Coulter is now too insane to even be taken seriously by pundits on Fox News, and possibly not too insane to head towards a nuclear disaster area for the health benefits. It all makes Gilbert Gottfried look almost classy by comparison. But only almost.
