On ABC’s "Good Morning America" this past Monday, Ann Coulter was asked about a
March speech in which she used a gay slur to refer to presidential candidate John Edwards. (she called him a "f@gg0t")
"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,"
Coulter said Monday, picking up on remarks made by HBO’s Bill Maher.
Maher, for those of you who may have forgotten, suggested in March that "people wouldn’t be dying needlessly" if
Vice President Dick Cheney had been killed in an insurgent attack in
Nice turn-about tactic, Ann! I just wonder if any of the apathetic casual followers of politics will ever truly understand the parody/irony though…
EXAMPLE: Elizabeth Edwards has now pleaded on Tuesday with Ann Coulter to "stop the
personal attacks," a day after the conservative commentator said, obviously tounge-in-cheek (see above), that she
would from now on just wish Edwards’ husband, Democratic presidential candidate John
Edwards, had been killed by terrorists.
Ann apparently responded with a laugh and accused Edwards of really calling on
her to stop speaking altogether. Coulter questioned why Elizabeth Edwards
was making the phone call instead of her husband, and criticized
John Edwards for "stealing doctors’ money" during his successful career
as a trial lawyer.
"I don’t think I need to be told to stop writing by Elizabeth Edwards, thank you," Coulter said.
