After Ann Coulter was rejected by just about everyone after saying that John Edwards looks like a “fag” Ann Coulter seemed to have learned her lesson. Well not exactly: “if I’m going to say anything about John Edwards in the future, I’ll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot.”
So, finally, Elizabeth Edwards – John Edwards’ wife – had had enough and decided to call in to Hardball where Ann Coulter was making an appearance. Elizabeth Edwards asks Ann Coulter to stop debasing political dialogue and to stop with the personal attacks. Edwards explains that many young people listen to what Ann Coulter has to say and confuse it with intelligent debate and are, thus, influenced by it and think that it is perfectly fine for them to insult those they disagree with.
For Ann’s reaction, head on over to Crooks and Liars.
O, in related news, Coulter linked Democratic president Barack Obama to terrorism. Obama seemingly pissed Coulter off by saying that Republicans have hijacked faith, and that religion is used these days to divide not to unite. Coulter: “I do think someone named B. Hussein Obama should avoid using hijack and religion in the same sentence.”
It is beyond me why people listen to what this vile woman has to say. She is not a political commentator; she is a person who is filled with hatred and intolerance. She is polluting the political debate, and teaching the youth that insulting one’s political opponents is intelligent, respectable and that one can even become rich doing so.
