Happy birthday, Ann Coulter!

Today is Ann Coulter's 44th birthday! The conservative columnist was born December 8, 1961, in New Canaan, Connecticut. She founded the conservative Cornell Review while in college at Cornell and then went on to law school at the University of Michigan, where she started a new chapter of the Federalist Society. She practiced law for more than a decade before she began her syndicated column for the Universal Press Syndicate in 1999. She was fired from a spot as a commentator on MSNBC when she told a disabled Vietnam veteran, "People like you caused us to lose that war." She later said that she hadn't realized he was disabled. After September 11, 2001, she lost her column on the National Review's Web site when she wrote a column that said of Muslims, "We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity."

A fan of Ann's says, "Whenever I read a statement like, 'We should invade their countries, kill their leaders, and convert them to Christianity,' I think Christianity is the devil's religion. And look at their biggest representative, a guy in a red suit that indoctrinates, steals the mind of children. Santa and satan are actually the same word."
