Ann Coulter’s Blood Lust

 

These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzis. I’ve never seen people enjoying their husbands’ death so much. These self-obsessed women seem genuinely unaware that 9-11 was an attack on our nation and acted as if the terrorist attack only happened to them. They believe the entire country was required to marinate in their exquisite personal agony. Apparently, denouncing Bush was part of the closure process.

– Ann Coulter, quoted criticizing 9/11 widows on The Today Show

How does Ann Coulter continue to get away with it? In the
past, this rabid right-winger has advocated everything from assassination (“We need somebody to put rat poisoning in Justice Stevens’ crème brûlée.”) to profiling and ethnic cleansing (“I think the government should be spying on all Arabs, engaging in torture as a televised spectator sport, dropping daisy cutters wantonly throughout the Middle East and sending liberals to Guantanamo.”

I daresay that if I were to suggest, even in jest, that some prominent political figure deserved to be murdered, I’d find myself in handcuffs and leg-irons and frog-hopped to Federal prison faster than you could say “The Patriot Act.” But Coulter, the conservative queen of agit-propaganda, remains a media darling despite continuously venturing beyond partisan politics into the relam of deliberately inflammatory hate speech.

Most recently, on June 05, the cadaverous blonde was interviewed by Matt Lauer on The Today Show, where she had been invited to promote her new book, “Godless: The Church of Liberalism.” When Matt asked her to explain the President’s record-low approval ratings, she launched into an attack on the 9/11 widows, ostensibly because some of them have questioned the Bush Administration’s lack of response to the warning signs of the impending terrorist attack which claimed their husbands’ lives.

Although offered an opportunity to retract her crude comments, an unrepentant Ann refused to apologize, but rather continued to spew her odious brand of bile. Unfortunately, Lauer ended the awkward segment not by distancing himself with a disclaimer, but by thanking his gangly guest with “Ann Coulter, always fun to have you.”

Why does this overspun media whore have free access to the airwaves all across the national-TV talk show circuit? Aren’t the corporate sponsors embarrassed by such a disgraceful display of insensitivity and arrogance?

The answer undoubtedly lies with the blonde hair, blue eyes and mini-skirt, combined with her uncritical support of the President’s party line, all so defiantly delivered in a most politically-incorrect fashion. However, given the gradual browning of America, you have to question the wisdom of Bush turning to such a vicious hatemonger to trumpet a Republican agenda which appeals to a rapidly-shrinking and deranged demographic.

I guess desperate times still call for desperate measures.
