Baiting Ann Coulter for Campaign Cash

By Debbie Schlussel
How do you save your campaign when you’re in third place in the race for the Democratic Presidential nomination?
Well, if you’re gazillionaire John Edwards and don’t want to spend the money you soaked from doctors, you have your wife bait Ann Coulter.
It certainly does the trick, as the Wall Street Journal’s Washington Wire reports:

EDWARDS AND MCCAIN BATTLE to stay in 2008 top tier.
Lagging far behind Obama and Clinton financially, Edwards reaps pick-me-up from jousting with Ann Coulter: $450,000 from 2,300 donors within 24 hours.

That’s what the Elizabeth Edwards-manufactured feud with Coulter was all about. Period.
Not that I think Ann minds much. She presumably got to sell more of her latest book, now out in paperback, which is why she was making the media rounds, this week.

Ann Coulter is an evil crack whore-looking bitch, but SHE HAS EVERY RIGHT to say anything she does! And as much as i dislike her, she gives good TV…and KNOWS how to shut O’Reilly up:)

I like Ann Coulter a lot. Political correctness is so dangerous and it is what’s killing our country, the terror of being called ‘racist’, ‘hateful’, blah blah blah blah blah. It’s a relief to see someone insulting our enemies, I don’t lose one bit of sleep listening to Coulter be “mean” to someone, I love it. It’s healthy.

In Canada political correctness has been codified into a law banning “hate speech” – in other words, un-liberal speech.
Case in point is an ex-terrorist named Zacharia Anani. He claims to have killed over 220 people in the name of God, but has now left jihad and Islam for Christianity. He came within a whisker of being charged under that law for simply explaining that the Qur’an was used as the primary tool by those who recruited him.
So, the verifiable truth can not be legally spoken in Canada if it doesn’t pass the feel-good test.
We’re simply too comfortable in our daily lives to properly react to incremental losses of our most basic freedoms.

I like Ann’s “insensitive” style. She has a good wit. She just makes a fool of herself when she discussed evolution though. She should stick to politics.
John Edwards is willing to cash in on his wife’s cancer. I don’t know what it says about her to stick by him in light of that fact.

Coulter Rocks!!!!

Ann Coulter is an ugly person who has made her mark spreading ugliness and making fun of people, while trying steam roll people into believing her views. She resorts to juvenile name calling, reminiscent of the click-ish bitches I went to high school with. Another “beautiful person” who just needs to go away!

Democrats are despicable and contemptible. How dare they use emotion and exploit their family members in order to gain political advantages. The only true, honest people with integrity and morals in this world are Republicans. If a stupid lib ever tries to tell you they are honest, that just means they are lying!
Oh, and Ann Coulter has never said anything bad about anyone – except dirty liberals! She said nothing to deserve a verbal assault from Frau Edwards. Husband John obviously put her up to it, and for that they both deserve to be murdered by Islamic terrorists.

OBL,
Precisely!

Gee, musicgirl, Ann’s just doing the job mealy-mouthed GOP politicians won’t do. If you want a good dose of people “spreading ugliness and making fun of people, while trying steam roll people into believing her views” I suggest Firedoglake, Pandagon, and AlterNet.
The bottom line is Silky Pony can dish it out but he can’t take it.
