Now here’s something I just don’t get. Jimmie Walker, who played J.J. on Good Times (Dy-no-miiite!) is apparently head over heals for conservative pundit and general pain in the ass, Ann Coulter.
In a recent interview, he lavished her with praise, speaking downright adoringly of the Fox talk show host who has often been criticized for her use of racist rhetoric.
“Ann is Ann. She’s a great woman, I have nothing but good things to say about her. She does the Ann stuff. But she’s just a beautiful person. I adore her… She’s a very, very nice person and I’m lucky to know her. I have nothing but the highest respect for her, and I’m thoroughly impressed with everything she does – whether she’s writing Sarah Palin stuff or doing whatever. She’s extremely bright, she’s beautiful and I’m honored to have anything to do with her.”
He said all of this with a straight face, and his Good Times costar, Bern Nadette Stanis (yes, it’s really spelled like that) who was seated near Jimmie during the interview vouched for the earnestness of his statements, even going so far as to suggest that the two might actually be dating.
