Nutbag Extraordinaire: Ann Coulter
I have never much been a fan of uber-conservative bitch Ann Coulter. But now, she's gone waaaaaaaaayyyyyy over the line. So over the line, she can't see it from where she's standing, gloating and ensuring her place in the Nutbag Hall of Shame.
Ann Coulter Attacks 9-11 Widows
No one is much surprised that outspoken conservative columnist Ann Coulter attacks environmentalists and Bill Clinton in her new book, "Godless: The Church of Liberalism."
But Coulter has raised eyebrows by taking aim at a different target: The widows of 9/11 victims.
Calling them "broads" who are "enjoying" their husbands' deaths, Coulter made her attack on the widows public yesterday, through the publication of the book and during a raucous appearance on NBC's "The Today Show."
"I was shocked that she was focusing on us," said Lorie Van Auken of East Brunswick, who lost her husband, Kenneth, on 9/11, and who was personally attacked in Coulter's book.
Much of Coulter's television interview consisted of the show's host, Matt Lauer, reading portions of the book aloud, including this passage about the 9/11 widows:
"These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzis. I have never seen people enjoying their husbands' death so much."
I don't know if this was a poorly-advised publicity stunt in order to sell more books, or if this woman just has a heart of pure, black coal. Either way, she should be (but is clearly not) ashamed.
