The conservative pundit had marked the occasion of the FIFA World Cup by writing that Americans' growing interest in soccer could be nothing more than a "sign of the nation's moral decay." She further dismissed U.S. soccer fans as a whole, arguing that "if more 'Americans' are watching soccer today, it's only because of the demographic switch effected by Teddy Kennedy's 1965 immigration law."
From her perch right outside the Champs-Elysees in Paris, Coulter's voice dripped with sarcasm as she told host Sean Hannity that she was "on tenterhooks" waiting to see the result of the Germany-Algeria game. She joked that a previous match had ended in an "exhilarating" 1-1 tie that caused riots on the busy shopping avenue.
"And my critics have apparently tried to persuade me that soccer is a macho game by throwing one week of hissy fits over my column," she added.
Hannity agreed with Coulter that the sport was pretty "monotonous."
