I told you she was a bitch... 

When Ann can't win an argument she just starts making shit up. Via Demagogue:

COULTER: And I'll give you an example of one where they did it with hatred in their hearts, but unfortunately, they did it accurate to history, and that was 'Patton.' That was intended to make Patton look terrible, but it was accurate to history and it made Patton look great and people loved him. And that's why they don't do it accurately any more.

MATTHEWS: You are dead wrong. Everybody loved 'Patton' from the first day it came out.

COULTER: But that isn't the way it was intended.

MATTHEWS: I was in the Peace Corps in Africa and everybody over there loved it when we got to see it. From the first day we loved it.

CORN: How could you not love that movie from the opening scene?

MATTHEWS: He's God-like. Ann, where do you get this malarkey from?

Everybody loved 'Patton.' How old were you, when 'Patton' came out. How old were you, two?

COULTER: I think you're misunderstanding.

MATTHEWS: No, I think you're wrong, Ann. I think everybody loved 'Patton.'

COULTER: Can I respond?

MATTHEWS: Who didn't like it?

COULTER: That is precisely my point, because it was made accurately.
But it was made, the people making it were intending to make Patton look bad.

MATTHEWS: Who did that?

COULTER: That is why George C. Scott turned down his Academy Award for playing Patton.

MATTHEWS: Who told you that? Who told you that?

COULTER: It's well known.

MATTHEWS: It's well known?

COULTER: Why do you think he didn't accept the award?

CORN: Why did he take the role? Why did he take the role, Ann, if he didn't want to do it?

COULTER: Why do you think he turned down the award, Chris? You never looked that up? It never occurred to you? 'I wonder why George C. Scott didn't accept his award.'

MATTHEWS: Because he said he wasn't going to a meat parade, because he didn't believe in award ceremonies because they're all about women wearing no clothes and showing off their bodies...

COULTER: By portraying Patton as negatively as possible, but by doing it accurately the American people loved it.

MATTHEWS: Facts mean nothing to you, Ann.

Why does anyone believe the bile that shoots out of this woman's mouth?
