Ann Coulter Smackdown

Thanks to Margalit for drawing my attention to this. You will not hear me say stuff like this very often because it is really nasty and un-Christian of me but I really despise Ann Coulter. I cannot believe the things she gets away with. Don Imus had his career destroyed for lesser offenses than she commits in a five-minute conversation. (for the record, I don't care for Imus either) Elizabeth Edwards confronted Ann Coulter on "Hardball" about the vicious attacks that she makes on political persons and their families and Coulter's only response was "You're asking me to stop talking and I won't." Well, that isn't what Edwards was trying to do. When Edwards pointed out that Coulter made a joke about John Edwards having a bumper sticker that said "Ask me about my dead son," Coulter's response was not an apology. She simply said, "That was three years ago!" I'm sorry but what a b***h! It's one thing to disagree with people politically. It is quite another to disparage, ridicule and attack them publically. Isn't it time someone sent Ann Coulter back to the hole she crawled out of?

See the exchange here.

Ann Coulter makes me insane! Chris likes to watch Fox; we call it the other comedy channel. But I usually scream at her or shake my head in disbelief.

My friend, don't get me started. She is a cruel person who takes advantage of other people's misfortune. Instead of creating intelligent dialogue about politics, she chooses to do things like make fun of Hillary's "chubby legs."

Thanks for the link. Coulter was unbelievable with Edwards yesterday, wasn't she. Even Hardball himself was like, hey deal with the question. I hate Coulter with such a passion. She's one sick babe who totally and completely lives off her looks.

You know, Margalit, I really had to laugh to watch her nervously flicking her hair back and forth like some college co-ed without being able to offer one sensible comeback. My friend says she looks like Skeletor.

I'm so sorry I missed this! We were out at the farmers market and getting BBQ last night.

Some of the lefty bloggers joke that she's really a man: big Adam's apple and so thin. (I read this either on Pandagon or feministe.)
