Have You No Decency, Woman!
Ann Coulter's venom is sparing no one. After spewing her poison againt Muslims, Arabs, feminists, liberals, democrats, the poor, and any one with a shred of decency for years, she turns her attentions to her new victims: four September 11th widows who have been demanding more investigation in the way the government guard against terror attacks.
Ironically, Coulter is angry with the widows because, accroding to her, they use their grief "to make a political point."
At least they are using their grief.
Coulter and co. have been using a nation's grief (and fear) to make plenty of political points.
Coulter does not bother me. Every age has its slime. Her readers, however, those who put her on the best seller list, do.
Another thing that bothers me is that The Washington Post files this article under entertainment news. Yeah, right. Coulter's attacks on 9/11 widows are classy "entertainment" of the first order: up there with mud wrestling and Jerry Springer.
