Ann Coulter: Someone should poison Justice Stevens

Did she just commit a federal crime?

With a tip of the War Room Kevlar helmet to Raw Story, here's the ever-charming Ann Coulter, speaking Thursday night about her hopes that George W. Bush will get to nominate a replacement for Associate Justice John Paul Stevens. "We need somebody to put rat poisoning in Justice Stevens' creme brulee," Coulter said.

Coulter insisted it was "just a joke, for you in the media."


Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. Section 115, anyone who "threatens to assault, kidnap, or murder . . . a United States judge . . . with intent to impede, intimidate, or interfere with" that judge's duties is guilty of a felony.

That's just a joke for you, Ann. Sort of.
