(CNN) – It's the worst of the worst – the most fictional of statements, the flippiest of flops and most misleading of claims by U.S. political figures this year.
Fact checkers, Politifact, asked readers to rank the top lies from politicians in 2013. Here are the top four - all of which relate to President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act:
(CNN) - Conservative commentator Ann Coulter stood by her decision to call President Barack Obama the "r word" in a tweet, and questioned whether the word is indeed offensive.
"Maybe [Vice President Joe] Biden should be upset with me calling the president a retard but not an actually disabled person," she said Friday in an interview on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight."
(CNN) – Conservative columnist Ann Coulter hearts former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
“She’s fabulous,” Coulter said during an interview Tuesday on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight."
“She is a big star. She’s virtually the biggest thing on the planet.”
Washington (CNN) - Conservative columnist Ann Coulter has made some enemies in her years as a right-wing firebrand, but she's still jealous of Sarah Palin's ability to agitate the left.
"I especially love her for her enemies, I'm insanely jealous of that," Coulter said last night on MSNBC. "I love her for how she makes liberal heads explode."
Washington (CNN) - Conservative syndicated columnist Ann Coulter came to the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday with her customary soapbox and her lecturer's cap.
"Here's a lesson of history: Do not allow Democrats anywhere near foreign policy. Not even to keep them away from domestic policy. It's a mistake to ask those who don't even like democracy to defend it," she said.
(CNN) - Conservative writer Ann Coulter took several jabs at President Obama and Democrats Saturday in a speech that had the crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference hooting with cheers and laughter.
(CNN) – CNN Anchor Rick Sanchez went head-to-head with conservative writer Ann Coulter Friday on a host of issues.
Coulter will speak before the Conservative Political Action Conference, an annual gathering of conservatives in the nation’s capital, later Saturday.
