Ann Coulter reacted to the news of Texas Senator Ted Cruz pulling out of the race for the Republican nomination with all the class one would expect:

Coulter took particular pleasure in gently toying with Steve Sailer, though to what end wasn't entirely clear:


Especially when one considers that she later retweeted praise from the organization with which Sailer's affiliated. Maybe she was simply a little too giddy from the news of Cruz's demise? Whatever the reason, she opted to retweet praise from a source she really should know better than to accept praise from:

That would the official account of VDARE, the white supremacist website named after the the girl who was allegedly the first white child born in the Americas.

As for its relation to Sailer, following Hurricane Katrina, he published an article on the site arguing that African-Americans need more guidance than other races, comparing their behavior after that natural disaster to that of the Japanese after the 1995 Kobe earthquake. There was little looting after it because, in Sailer's words, "when you get down to it, Japanese aren't blacks."
