Heeeeeeeere's Annie!

That Was No Lady -- That Was My Husband
By Ann Coulter

The Edwards campaign is apparently still running low on donations, so this week they went back to their top fundraiser: me.

I doubled the ratings of the lowest-rated cable news show on Tuesday by agreeing to go on for a full hour to promote my new paperback version of "Godless" -- a mistake I won't make again. As I was walking to the set, minutes before airtime, it was casually mentioned to me that Elizabeth Edwards, wife of Democratic presidential candidate, John Edwards, might call in.

For the first time in recorded history, the show's host did not interrupt a guest, but let Elizabeth Edwards ramble on and on, allowing her to browbeat me for being mean to her husband. (This delicate flower is very sensitive to rough words, having hired the Edwards' campaign staffer who wrote this: "What if Mary had taken Plan B after the Lord filled her with his hot, white, sticky Holy Spirit"?)

Say, did any TV host ever surprise Al Franken, Bill Maher or Arianna Huffington with a call by the wife of someone they've made nasty remarks about? How about a call to John Edwards from the wife of a doctor he bankrupted with his junk-science lawsuits?

I think I may have tuned out at some point, so I can only speak to the first 45 minutes of Elizabeth Edwards' harangue, but it mostly consisted of utterly dishonest renditions of things I had said on my "Good Morning America" interview this week and a column I wrote four years ago. (You can't rush Edwards' "rapid response team"!)

Chris Matthews is a jerk.

Russet Shadows made a point on a post below that John Edwards lost the male vote that night. I agree. How much respect can you have for a man that sends his cancer-fighting wife (no slur there, my mom and best friend are Breast Cancer survivors) to defend him from some WORDS.

Being a Southern man...I lost all respect for Edwards (not that I had much anyway) as a man.

His hair is gorgeous, though. Props to his hairdresser and campaign donations for paying for it.

Don't you just love Ann Coulter? The woman can write and she can speak. She says it like it is and she's damn funny, too. You go girl!

The High Priestess of Hate. I gotta admit, I love her. Helps fill Democratic coffers to the brim. Just like pictures of future Madame President Hillary does for you folks.

It also increases Ann's lecture fees and book sales, so that IS good, Lessy!

Here's another flaw to your logic, Les: Ann Coulter isn't running for office! Here's another bomb: neither is Rush Limbaugh! These are two conservative icons that liberals use to scare up donations, with the intent to do what, precisely? They can't be voted out. Neither can the liberal voters do anything about them, because Ann and Rush have succeeded without any liberal help whatsoever, and in the face of liberal opposition. So why do Ann and Rush get Democrats to give money? The answer is plain as the hollow space between Les' ears -- they serve as a rallying call for the "Fairness Doctrine" -- which ends up as viewpoint censorship. (If Rush were required to have "equal time", then radio stations would go out of business for running the unpopular liberal counterpart. The stations would drop Rush instead.)

The Left has never met a viewpoint not its own that it didn't desire to shut down or control. For contrast, look at the conservative proposals to require "fair time" in the liberal media -- oh whoops. There aren't any.

Smell that burnt flesh? That's BBQed Les, once again.

Hey Racist Shadow. I know you and your pointy hatted friends just love the smell of burning flesh, especially an uppity black man, eh?

Once again you proved you are an intellectual giant. I am humbled just to be on the same web page as you.

"Smell that burnt flesh? That's BBQed Les, once again."

Thanks for telling us. We wouldn't have noticed otherwise...

Russet is right. Coulter is a pundit and her comments are no worse than those on the left. Hillary is a Presidential candidate and a different animal.

Funny, I know Russet and have never heard anyone call him racist other than you.

You may now buy a clue.
