CNN Host Slams the Tea Party: "Not the Brightest," Akin to Hitler's Mobs?

Conservative author Ann Coulter appeared on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight on Tuesday evening to promote her new book, Demonic, which argues that liberals are historically prone to a mob mentality. But host Piers Morgan used Coulter's thesis as a launching pad to make several insulting jabs at the Tea Party, even suggesting that those protesting against big government are somehow "similar" to the mobs drummed up by fascist dictators Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.

And, when Coulter said she "loved" the Tea Party, Morgan seemed flabbergasted: "I don’t get that because you’re a smart cookie," before again impugning the Tea Party: "They're not among the brightest of spellers."

When Coulter defended Tea Partiers as "smarter than any liberal," Morgan could not accept it, repeatedly asking: "Do you think so?...You really think that?...In your heart?"
