Why do Republicans always disavow Ann Coulter?

You hear it every time.

Coulter calls 9/11 widows "harpies," or says that Bill Clinton was a "very good rapist," or "raghead talk tough -- raghead face consequences." You know 'em all.

Then Republicans all say in unison,
Ann Coulter doesn't speak for most conservatives.
For his part, Putz says he "mostly ignores her" but that's a big lie.

If it's the case that Ann Coulter is mostly ignored and doesn't represent most Republicans, why does Ann Coulter keep appearing at very important Republican functions with very important Republicans?

I just got this e-mail from the American Spectator (don't ask how I got on the list.)

So Coulter will share the podium with the Vice President and three -- count 'em --- three GOP presidential candidates. Strange. Why does someone who doesn't speak for them keep getting invited to speak for them?

I wonder if the media will think to ask Rudy if he thinks 9/11 widows are "harpies" or ask Mike Huckabee if he agrees that we should invade more Middle Eastern countries and convert them all to Christianity?
