Ann Coulter isn't fringe at all -- the GOP agrees with every spew out of her vile mouth
Posted by Jill | 7:34 PM
It's time to hang Ann Coulter around the neck of every fucking Republican in the country. Because she isn't their fringe, she is their mainstream.

Mary Matalin thinks she's A-OK:

IMUS: What did you make of the Ann Coulter deal?

MATLIN: I take her larger point that in the absence of being able to make persuasive arguments you throw out messengers that — can’t be — it’s politically incorrection to argue with, you know the verbiage is a little, a little stressful.

IMUS: So you thought her comments about these women…

MATLIN: I take her larger point, which is —

IMUS: Why can’t you comment on her calling these women harpies.

MATLIN: Because that’s not her point. That’s completely not her point.

IMUS: Well no, but saying that they were happy their husbands got killed and were going to divorce them. And yeah, that they’re getting long in the tooth. Maybe they ought to think about appearing in Playboy, which is an option.

MATLIN: What do you think about her point? Her point that you can’t — you know Cindy Sheehan — if you throw yourself in the political arena, then you should be able to address political issues, and people should be able to speak back to you.

IMUS: I agree with her point.

MATLIN: Well, then that’s what I agree with.

IMUS: But i think it’s repugnant and repulsive and gutless to, and cheap and cheesey to call these women all these names. I mean, whether it’s right or not, it’s just something there’s just. You don’t go there.

MATLIN: That’s her stock and trade.

IMUS: But i’m surprised that you won’t condemn her for these repugnant remarks.

MATLIN: I don’t know her. I haven’t read the book.

IMUS: You don’t have to know her. You know what Hitler did. Did you you him? You condemn what he did.

MATLIN: Are you comparing her to Hitler?

IMUS: No, I’m not. Of course not.

MATLIN: This is the point. This is complete the point she’s making. These lefty crazy people go around calling us [unintelligible] and Hitlers and Nazis and everything and nobody say anything. She calls somebody a harpy and you’d think that the whole world was on fire.

Oh, boo-fucking-hoo, Mary. You guys can dish it out, but you can't take it. First of all, no one with any influence is calling anyone on the right Hitlers or Nazis. Yes, we are pointing out similarities between the progression of the Bush Administration's encroachment on civil liberties and the early years of the Third Reich -- BECAUSE THEY ARE THERE, not because we're saying that Bush is Hitler. We're hoping to PREVENT Bush from becoming Hitler. Methinks that the Nazi references hit a bit too close to home, and that's why Mary is so upset.

Yes, I refer to the Bush Reich. But who the fuck am I? I'm a blogger who gets about 400 page views a day on average. Sorry, but I just don't have that much influence. If Republicans were so damaged by one pathetic little blogger in Jersey, they wouldn't have control over all three branches of government. Besides -- you guys are big boys and girls, you can handle little old me.

I'll tell you what I'm NOT doing. I'm not going on national television and claiming that women who watched their husbands die on the morning news are despicable and claiming that they are profiting off their husbands' deaths -- while profiting off my own book deal.

It was Republicans that wrote the book on this sort of thing, don't forget. It started with Lee Atwater and continued with his disciple Karl Rove. Remember, these are the same people who spread rumors that John McCain's wife is a drug addict and his adopted Bengladeshi daughter is the product of a liaison with a black prostitute. For these wingnut assholes to get their panties in a twist because five widows from New Jersey wanted answers to why the 9/11 attacks happened and wanted safeguards in place to ensure that no one else had to endure what they did, just tells us that yes, they really ARE the nasty, brutish, petty, mean-spirited, cruel, selfish, venal, UN-Christian pieces of shit that we say they are. They want Ann Coulter to be their public face? Then let's make sure the whole fucking country knows that Ann Coulter is what these people are.
