I feel so bad for Ann “I make Bill O’Reilly look positively cuddly” Coulter. She was on the Today show this morning hyping her new book Godless: The Church of Liberalism when Matt Lauer found his testicles and decided to challenge her on something she wrote about the 9/11 Widows in the book. First, here’s what she wrote:
- These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzies. I have never seen people enjoying their husbands’ death so much.
And here’s part of the transcript of her talk with Lauer today:
LAUER: So if you lose a husband, you no longer have the right to have a political point of view?
COULTER: No, but don’t use the fact that you lost a husband as the basis for being able to talk about, while preventing people from responding. Let Matt Lauer make the point. Let Bill Clinton make the point. Don’t put up someone I am not allowed to respond to without questioning the authenticity of their grief.
LAUER: Well apparently you are allowed to respond to them.
COULTER: Yeah, I did.
LAUER: So, in other words.
COULTER: That is the point of liberal infallibility. Of putting up Cindy Sheehan, of putting out these widows, of putting out Joe Wilson. No, no, no. You can’t respond. It’s their doctrine of infallibility. Have someone else make the argument then.
LAUER: What I’m saying is I don’t think they have ever told you, you can’t respond.
COULTER: Look, you are getting testy with me.
Holy shit! Matt Lauer was getting testy with Ann Coulter! HELP! HELP! SHE’S BEING REPRESSED!
Here’s a bit of unsolicited advice for Ann Coulter: Grow the fuck up. You’ve made millions off of being a total right wing batshit crazy bitch who appeals to the worst elements of your chosen political affiliation. You’ve got absolutely no leg to stand on when complaining about the left putting out people “you can’t respond to.” Obviously you can respond to them and go as far as to suggest that the people involved are enjoying the deaths of their loved ones because it’s put them into the spotlight. Hey, at least it gives them something of a basis to hold the viewpoints they do whereas you’re just shooting your mouth off in as outrageous a manner as you can in hopes it’ll net you more book sales to pad your bottom line with. Considering the bullshit you spew on a regular basis, your whining about the 9/11 Widows is a display of your amazing arrogance to think you’ve got anything to bitch about.
People like you are enough to make me wish there really was a God who has a true sense of justice just so I could see the look on your face when he ends up tossing your ass out. If anything, you’re ample proof no such God exists.
