Perfected: The Ann Coulter Song

(And yes, for those of you who saw this a long time ago, I'm painfully behind the times, but I still think it's great.)
Ann Coulter fell for a fake April Fools' Day article by Car and Driver that claimed President Obama ordered GM and Chrysler to cease their participation in NASCAR because it is an "unnecessary expenditure."
