Rather surprised that article referenced Maher’s comment. It’s left out of the discussion most of the time.
Not a fan of Ann’s comment though. It served no constructive purpose at all.

I’m not sure that the conservative cause is helped by Coulter immitating Bill Maher.
Done & Bump
Ann Coulter seems to be sliding past the moniker of “conservative commentator” and is moving towards “conservative demagogue”.
Ping to the Hunter supporters!
Please help Freep this poll!
Coulter no doubt hopes the comment serves the only purpose she's interested in at the moment. Sell her new book.
Ditto - that drunken blondie Olive Oyl becomes ever an embarassment!
That’s certainly a major aspect, but I do think she was also trying to point out the hypocrisy of the left by mimicking Maher.
Still, it was a dumb comment. She could have made that point in so many other ways that would have been more effective and less offensive. Leave wishing for the death of Americans to the left.
Mrs Edwards won that one but Ann cleaned Matthew’s clock.
Coulter's response was that maybe she should just start saying that she wished Edwards was killed by terrorists, since Bill Maher said that about the Vice President and no one made as big a deal about that as they have made about Coulter calling Edwards a girl.
As usual, Ann made a witty comment about media double standards and, as usual, her words are being twisted.
We have some work to do.
