Mrs Edwards “Confronts” Coulter – For Cash

In case you missed Ann Coulter’s appearance on MSNBC’s Hardball last night, she was “confronted” by Elizabeth Edwards about her “personal attacks.”

Via YouTube:

They’re called “jokes” Liz. You know, like your husband.

By the way, has Mrs. Edwards ever weighed in on the personal attacks the left makes each and every day upon President Bush and every other Republican or conservative politician or pundit? (For instance, read some of the comments posted at the YouTube link.)

Moreover, Mrs. Edwards’ cohorts and hirelings (like his erstwhile webmistresses) call anyone who disagrees with them Hitler or worse.

And yet they are the ones using the Nazi-like tactics. Like arranging to ambush a person with an unexpected telephone call while they are on a live television program.

By the way, most media reports on Coulter’s latest remarks conveniently manage to leave out what she was actually alluding to.

Here is a transcription of the June 25thGood Morning America interview Mrs. Edwards referenced, courtesy of the Hillary/Soros front Media Matters:

CUOMO: Joining us now is political commentator Ann Coulter, whose book Godless: the Church of — Lisv — Liberalism — what did I almost say there? — Liberalism — is out in paperback. There it is. A conservative’s conservative, she’s had some tough words lately for her own party.

But to begin with the tough words, some tough words for you by the three top candidates in response to what you had said. Some were calling it a homosexual slur. You said it was a taunt. They all came out when you were talking about [former Sen.] John Edwards [D-NC] and said, "This was wrong. We must deny it." Fair criticism of you or a shift towards the tolerant among the GOP?

COULTER: No, no. They were — I was denounced all over. All over. I think the one that hurt the most was from I’m a little girl in a pink party dress.com. Very upsetting.


COULTER: Though about the same time Bill Maher said — and by the way, I did not call John Edwards the "F" word. I said I couldn’t talk about him because you go into rehab for using that word.

CUOMO: You say you were — you were joking.

COULTER: Oh yeah, I wouldn’t insult gays by comparing them to John Edwards. That would be mean.

But about the same time — you know — Bill Maher was not joking and saying he wished Dick Cheney had been killed in a terrorist attack. So I’ve learned my lesson. 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.

CUOMO: So let’s get off of you, but let’s get your view on what’s going on with the party right now. You hear what the speculation is. You know what the poll numbers are. The talk is, the party’s in trouble. How do you see it?

Our watchdog media is using the Edwards campaign clip which artfully omits the part where Ann mentions Bill Maher’s "joke" that he wished Cheney had been killed by terrorists in Afghanistan.

Instead, these unbiased journalists are running only the part where Ann says: "next time I mention John Edwards, I’ll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot."

This is a shockingly dishonest attack — even by our one party media’s standards.

But it’s clear what this was all about, the Edwards campaign is running out of money.

And guess what, this was a great way to try to raise some more, by once again playing the victim:

Hey, they’ve done it before.
