Ann Coulter makes me shudder

You all know Ann Coulter. Conservative commentator, author, general witch.

She has a new book coming out, which means she'll be showing way too much of her desperate-for-a-trip-to-White-Castle body on national television as she tries to rope you into buying her new pile of crap book.

(This is an aside to my point here, but people like Ann Coulter, who is convinced that I want to look at her bones protruding through her skin, really drive me nuts. It's a miracle of the human body that her legs don't snap in half when she walks.)

Anyway, her book, "Godless", doesn't need to be plugged here. But I am confident that most of you are capable of thinking for yourselves, so I'm not worried about you being stupid enough to spend money on this trash. It'd be like buying a "Best of American Idol" CD, and you know you're above that.

Coulter appeared on the Today show on NBC this week (yes, the show is still on the air even with Phony Miss Katie gone). Host Matt Lauer, not known for hard-hitting content in his interviews, at least had the guts to bring up some of the more ridiculous passages in Coulter's published diatribe, like this one about some of the 9/11 widows who had spoken out in favor of the 9/11 commission:

"These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzis. I have never seen people enjoying their husbands' death so much."
There's also the fact that Coulter personally attacks these widows. The women are Kristen Breitweiser, Lorie Van Auken, Mindy Kleinberg and Patty Casazza of New Jersey. Not only does she call them "broads", which I'm guessing isn't designed to come across as "respectful", but Coulter also refers to them as the "Witches of East Brunswick," the New Jersey town where two of them live.

But let's focus on one line.

I have never seen people enjoying their husbands' death so much.

This is ridiculous in about 3,279 ways. And while I probably shouldn't respond to any of this, I'm going to anyway.

Do you honestly believe, Ann, that these women enjoyed watching their husbands burn? Do you honestly believe that they enjoyed trying to explain to their young kids that their Dad wasn't coming home?

Unfortunately, there are enough sheep in the herd to allow someone like Coulter to continue to spew her hatred towards basically anyone who would dare have a different point of view from hers. These are the same sheep that go crazy whenever Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh take a vacation, but Hannity and Limbaugh are exponentially more tolerable than Coulter. Her book will sell in the millions.

Too bad, because a sanctimonious, self-righteous, hateful skank like her shouldn't ever be able to sell millions of books.
