As you might imagine, President Barack Obama's re-election didn't do good things to Ann Coulter.
"I stopped watching political news, I stopped listening to talk radio," Coulter said during a D.C. visit Wednesday. She explained that for years people have tried to turn the conservative columnist and bestselling author into a radio talk show host.
"I've never been interested and boy was I relieved with that decision after the election," she said at a Heritage Foundation bloggers briefing. "I thought, 'these poor people every day, they have to go on and talk about politics.' I'm at home watching 'Gossip Girl,' just trying to forget about everything."
Coulter was in town promoting her newest book, "Never Trust a Liberal Over Three – Especially a Republican," which, besides new writing, includes a treasury of past columns. Coulter's mother passed away in 2009 leaving Coulter a ton of her own print columns, which the writer went through after the 2012 election.
"So in addition to watching 'Gossip Girl' and 'Revenge' and Turner Classic Movies, I was going through her pile of clippings," Coulter explained. Out of that pile came her newest book, her 10th.
Coulter said it was fun to read the columns from back when the GOP was in control. "Oh, life was sweeter then, the birds were singing, the sun was shining and I think it's worth remembering it wasn't really that long ago."
