For those of you attacking Ann Coulter for bringing up John Edwards' son's death, some perspective:
From Front Page News Edwards' public success spotlights son's death
Used it again at the end of 2003 in his own piece, Four Trials
Scroll down to the bottom.
Running for his son: Teen's death changed Edwards' life
Here is the Edwards press machine making it an issue in 2004, acting as if they are finally opening up about it...but they were on record as talking about it in 2001....
Here again, in 2005, Edwards pretends he's finally opening up about his son's death in a Chicago Tribune article:
Throughout his campaign for president and then vice president in 2004, former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina made it clear that the death of his teenage son in a car accident was off-limits, not for discussion in a political context.
But now his wife, Elizabeth, has sent an e-mail to supporters voicing a connection she shares with Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a soldier killed in Iraq. As Sheehan was camped near President Bush's Texas ranch, protesting the war, Edwards called on her own family's backers to support Sheehan.
And, in a departure from a campaign-trail silence that the Edwardses kept about the death of their 16-year-old son, Wade, Elizabeth Edwards noted that Sheehan's son, Casey, 24, died in Iraq eight years to the day after her own son.
Here the Edwards are again in 2006, using it with Oprah and her dimwitted audience:
Book saves memory of son, Edwards tells Oprah ******************* Here's John again, finally opening up about his son's death (HOW MANY TIMES CAN YOU FINALLY OPEN UP!?!?!?)
Edwards Opens Up About Son He Lost
The Edwards campaign site loves to bring it up also:
A Tribute To Wade Edwards
Here again,The Story I Am
Here, the Edwards' blog suggest the way to honor their dead son is to vote for John Edwards: Here again,Getting Young People To Vote
Its funny how Wade Edwards manages to make it into the political arena whenever John Edwards is running for something....
Sell those books, Ann.
Maybe you’ll get an HBO special like Maher.
Edwards is a disgusting phoney. Not only did he exploit his son’s death, he did it again recently with his wife’s cancer. Once an ambulance chasing trial attorney.....Well, you get the idea.
Yesterday was hilarious. Is he going to sic his mommy on the next mean commentator that hurts his feelings?
If he can’t deal with Ann Coulter himself, how can he deal with the likes of bin Laden, Chavez, or the rest of their ilk?
I suspect a lot of people are really upset over her comment about Frd Thompson.
"If I'm going to say anything about John Edwards in the future, I'll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot," Coulter said Monday, picking up on remarks made by HBO's Bill Maher. Maher suggested in March that "people wouldn't be dying needlessly" if Vice President Dick Cheney had been killed in an insurgent attack in Afghanistan.
People who get upset over her comments have too much time on their hands.
Must have missed it - what did she say about Fred?
She called him “our Obama”.
Mrs. Edwards and Cindy share several other characteristics as well. For one they’re both moonbats.
Coulter is right on this issue. BUMP
Interesting. I can see why the FRedheads would be upset. Sen. Thompson is no madrasa-educated, America-hating muslim. His middle name ain’t Hussein either.
If he cant deal with Ann Coulter himself, how can he deal with the likes of bin Laden, Chavez, or the rest of their ilk?
He cant deal because hes such a FAG! Oh crap, guess Ill be hearing from Mrs. Fag! :]
Fred can WIN (hopefully he'll pick Duncan as his VP).
I missed that one, what did she say?
