Appearing on Fox News, the sharp-tongued darling of the right wing said that while she respects Mr. Ahmadinejad's work, she believes he will be "no match" for her arsenal of crazy, unhinged remarks.
"I've heard Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's nutty rants in the past, and while I think he comes off like a total bananahead, in a one-on-one with me he will be the picture of sanity," Ms. Coulter said.
In Iran, President Ahmadinejad accepted Ms. Coulter's challenge and said that while he was "confident of victory," he recognized that besting her in an insane comment contest "would not be easy."
"In any competition involving verbal lunacy, Ann Coulter is the favorite going in," Mr. Ahmadinejad said. "I will need to train for this for months."
But even as the rules for the insane comment contest were being set, North Korean president Kim Jong-Il and televangelist Pat Robertson expressed outrage that they had been excluded from the competition and demanded to be invited.
Within hours, Ms. Coulter apologized for omitting President Kim and the Rev. Robertson but said that the omission would be corrected: "Me, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Pat Robertson and Kim Jong-Il: That's the Final Four."
