    Unhappy Ann Coulter (psycho right-wing nutjob) trashes 9/11 widows on Today Show

    The next time a Republican wraps himself in 9/11 or uses a soldier as a prop -- the next time George W. Bush watches a 9/11 movie with 9/11 families, the next time he invites the father of a fallen soldier to join him in throwing out a first pitch, the next time he appears before a backdrop of soldiers, PhotoShopped or not, the next time he participates in a staged chat with troops in the field, the next time his party holds its national political convention within shouting distance of ground zero, the next time the mother of a fallen soldier turns up in Laura Bush's box at the State of the Union address, the next time Dick Cheney suggests that questioning the president's Iraq policy somehow equates to undercutting the troops -- remember this: It's the Democrats, not the Republicans, who do this sort of thing.

    Just ask Ann Coulter.

    In her new book, Coulter says that Democrats unfairly hide their faulty arguments behind people whose authentic pain is so deep that you can't really debate policy with them. The 9/11 widows are at the top of Coulter's list, but so too is Cindy Sheehan, whose son died in the Iraq war. On the "Today" show this morning, Coulter managed to add former ambassador Joseph Wilson to the list, too, although we're not sure how he fits into the case that Coulter is trying to make.

    The core of Coulter's point isn't necessarily wrong: It is a little unseemly to argue facts and consequences with somebody who can claim the high moral ground that comes from personal devastation. But a Republican like Coulter is hardly in any place to make such an argument, and there's no call at all for making it in the nasty way that she does. In her book, Coulter writes of the 9/11 widows: "These self-obsessed women seem genuinely unaware that 9/11 was an attack on our nation and acted like the terrorist attack only happened to them. They believe the entire country was required to marinate in their exquisite personal agony ... These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-parrazies. I have never seen people enjoying their husbands' death so much."

    Does she really mean all of this? That's the question that Matt Lauer put to Coulter this morning. And yes, she said, she does. Think Progress has the video. http://thinkprogress.org/2006/06/06/Coulter-911/

    Here's the transcript:

    Coulter: This is the left's doctrine of infallibility. If they have a point to make about the 9/11 Commission, about how to fight the war on terrorism, how about sending in somebody we are allowed to respond to. No. No. No. We have to respond to someone who had a family member die. Because then if we respond, oh you are questioning their authenticity.

    Lauer: So grieve but grieve quietly?

    Coulter: No, the story is an attack on the nation. That requires a foreign policy response.

    Lauer: By the way, they also criticized the Clinton administration.

    Coulter: Not the ones I am talking about. No, no, no.

    Lauer: Yeah they have.

    Coulter: Oh no, no, no, no, no. They were cutting commercials for Kerry. They were using their grief to make a political point while preventing anyone from responding.

    Lauer: So if you lose a husband, you no longer have the right to have a political point of view?

    Coulter: No, but don't use the fact that you lost a husband as the basis for being able to talk about, while preventing people from responding. Let Matt Lauer make the point. Let Bill Clinton make the point. Don't put up someone I am not allowed to respond to without questioning the authenticity of their grief.

    Lauer: Well apparently you are allowed to respond to them.

    Coulter: Yeah, I did.

    Lauer: So, in other words.

    Coulter: That is the point of liberal infallibility. Of putting up Cindy Sheehan, of putting out these widows, of putting out Joe Wilson. No, no, no. You can't respond. It's their doctrine of infallibility. Have someone else make the argument then.

    Lauer: What I'm saying is, I don't think they have ever told you, you can't respond.

    Coulter: Look, you are getting testy with me.

    Lauer: No. I think it's a dramatic statement. "These broads are millionaires stalked by grief-parrazies"? "I have never seen people enjoying their husband's deaths so much."

    Coulter: Yes, they are all over the news.

    So too, unfortunately, is Ann Coulter.

    I watched this bullshit and as I recall she likened being a liberal to being brain damaged.

    Hear me out: I do not support this woman's politics. I do, however, feel there is some validity in crticizing some of the 9/11 widows who were very vocal in the immediate aftermath. I , like most people, watched the news very intently. I saw interviews of some wealthy widows whose husbands had worked at the WTC and who had been afforded a very affluent lifestyle. Some of these women were very entitlement minded in the sense that they felt they deserved to have the government continue to support them in the lifestyle they were accustomed to. Life insurance and social security not withstanding, many of them worried that they could not continue their wealthy lifestyles without their husbands and did not think it was fair for them to have to either get a job or scale down theirliving arrangements. As unfortunate as their losses may be, they really are no worse of than the people left behind by senseless violence every day and just because their loved ones died in a terrorist attack it doesn't make them more deserving of being 'taken care of' than anybody else who has lost a loved one through murder, disease, or an auto accident. Sometimes things happen, horrible things, that cause us to have to make changes in order to carry on. What about the widows/widowers of the cleaning people at the WTC or the children of the food service people?

    you know children, wives, mothers, teenagers, and more than just husbands were lost to ppl b/c of 9-11; why does she have to hate on widos!? Cause she hates women thats why and either b/c she hates herself or she was born a man and continues on her mission to spew hate towards women and female-advocates.

    here's what Sen. Clinton said about her:

    Clinton slams Coulter's 'vicious' put-down of some 9/11 widows

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton lashed out at Ann Coulter for a "vicious, mean-spirited attack" on a group of outspoken 9/11 widows, whom the right-wing television pundit described as "self-obsessed" and enjoying their husbands' deaths.

    Coulter writes in a new book, "Godless: The Church of Liberalism," that a group of New Jersey widows whose husbands perished in the World Trade Center act "as if the terrorist attacks happened only to them."

    She also wrote, "I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much."

    Clinton, who has felt Coulter's wrath over the years, responded angrily on Wednesday.

    "Perhaps her book should have been called 'Heartless,"' the senator said.

    "I know a lot of the widows and family members who lost loved ones on 9/11. They never wanted to be a member of a group that is defined by the tragedy of what happened."

    The New York Democrat and former first lady said she found it "unimaginable that anyone in the public eye could launch a vicious, mean-spirited attack on people whom I've known over the last four and a half years to be concerned deeply about the safety and security of our country."

    The senator spoke after delivering a speech on protecting children from exposure to sex- and violence-saturated media.

    Coulter appeared Tuesday on NBC's "Today" show, and reiterated her stance, saying the women used their grief "to make a political point."

    Her criticism was aimed at four New Jersey women whom she dubbed "The Witches of East Brunswick," after the town where two of them live.

    They have spent the years since the 2001 terror attacks supporting an independent commission to examine government failures before the attack, and in the 2004 presidential campaign they endorsed Democrat John Kerry.

    The women are Kristen Breitweiser, Lorie Van Auken, Mindy Kleinberg and Patty Casazza of New Jersey.

    The women, who are still pushing for changes in how the government guards against future attacks, issued a joint statement after Coulter's television appearance.

    "We have been slandered. Contrary to Ms. Coulter's statements, there was no joy in watching men that we loved burn alive. There was no happiness in telling our children that their fathers were never coming home again. We adored these men and miss them every day," the women said.

    I agree with you about her hating women. She seems like the type of woman who is okay with herself being a powerful/influential woman in a boy's club, but she doesn't want any other women to make it in. We've all known chicks like that. Has it ever occured to her and other far-right women that if it weren't for the feminism that they so despise, none of them would have been educated and able to hold positions of authority anywhere other than the PTA? It's fine to take issue with some of the gender feminist politics ( I do) , but anybody who holds Phyllis Schlafley up as a role model needs a labotomy.

    This may be evil, but I really wish she would just die. The world would be a better place, and well she is what makes AMERICANS look bad.
    Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable.

    "How do we know their husbands weren't planning to divorce these harpies?" Coulter writes. "I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much."
    I think that negates anything about any of the widows wanting the government to support a lifestyle. She is one hateful bitch.

    you're not the only one that would wish she would die. If I could wish the worst disease in the world, then I would wish it on her. Ann needs to stop being such a neo-con cunt (a word that fits her so well) so she can die off and stop being an attention-whore.

    She really does have a strong, evil, negative energy coming from her. It's hateful & destructive. Calling herself a Christian is a heinous lie.
