That’s Ann Coulter on Jack Murtha.
Footnote Maybe Mickey Kaus can tell us why this wasn’t really offensive. Comparing something Coulter wrote in a book (which means she had at least two opportunities to edit it before publication) to something Kos said in response to a comment on his blog and quickly retracted, doesn’t really make much sense, even putting aside the fact that Kos’s comment was two years ago, while Coulter is being given Big Media access contemporaneously with her accusation that the 9-11 widows who criticized the Beloved Leader are “enjoying their husbands’ death.” (Good attempt to change the subject, though.)
But suggesting that a political opponent would make an appropriate murder target? Please!
What are the odds that Coulter won’t be invited to next year’s Conservative Political Action Committee hatefest? Or that “respectable” conservatives such as Bill Frist will stay away as a result? Slim, I’d say, and none.
