One would think that a formerly left-wing news source like MSNBC would keep a fair bit of distance between themselves and resident crazy person, Ann Coulter. But since the network’s ever rightward shift, Coulter has become a welcome guest.

On Tuesday, Coulter made an appearance on “Hardball” where she spoke with Chris Matthews about the implications of the primary race in Wisconsin. As she often does, Coulter surprised even the most jaded politico when she gleefully celebrated the fact that Wisconsin is the home state of Red Scare-inducing, Joseph McCarthy.

“I love Wisconsin…it’s the home of Joe McCarthy.”

And of course Matthews didn’t say a word.

Side note: I wonder what Coulter’s opinion of Braunau am Inn, Austria is? (Google that one for yourselves, folks)
