I have tried to keep this kind of stuff to a minimum, because it’s just so dumb. Awful Announcing’s Matt Yoder has a good dissection of an idiotic screed by Ann Coulter about why soccer is so un-American and is also ruining America because its growing popularity is due to all those people who really shouldn’t be in America in the first place liking the sport.
Did I mention that Coulter thinks “foreigners” are really bad?
In 2006, I wrote about a Weekly Standard attack on soccer. I like the sport itself more than I did when I wrote that blog post. But the same nonsensical qualities that define the Coulter piece also applied to the Weekly Standard’s blowhardery about the sport.
