Can you imagine the holy hell Ann Coulter would have unleashed if Ronald Reagan had been described in similarly scathing terms? But when the irrepressible Ann called Ted Kennedy "human pestilence," long-term Kennedy clan retainer Mike Barnicle barely blinked.
It happened on Morning Joe today. Coulter, who has called on conservatives to rally around Mitt Romney, was defending Romney's adoption in the past of moderate positions. Ann argued he did so in hyper-liberal Massachusetts while running against Ted Kennedy and that Romney "came within five points of taking out that human pestilence." The best Barnicle could muster was a stumbling "I, I, I, I don't know that I'm going to do that with Ted Kennedy," that "we miss him in Massachusetts" and that Kennedy would have facilitated the ObamaCare debate.

Former Kennedy flunky Barnicle barely defends Ted when Ann Coulter calls him “human pestilence.” Ping to Today show list.
Those who knew him best would know ...
Well, she could have called him a drunken unconvicted murderer. Either way, the truth is out there. May his arrogance be a lesson in humility.
if Ronald Reagan had been described in similarly scathing terms?
Oh he was and the Bush’s also WHILE THEY WERE ALIVE.
Pestilence? I miss ted kennedy like I miss smallpox.
Ann comes up with yet another well-deserved moniker for the former senior blimp from Massholechewzitts.
I would like to see all Republican or conservative commentators and elected officials call Ted Kennedy or Barney Frank what they are ... evil filth. And give details. The time to be mealy-mouthed has long passed.
I feel remiss that I forgot to note this past Thanksgiving that the Kennedy toilet has finally been flushed. We are free of this waste of oxygen and the vilest repository for good Scotch that ever drew breath and that is an unmixed good. Rest in torment Teddy
Two plus years ago, I was in the hospital for almost a month after cancer surgery, rehab, etc. That was the time that God chose for Ted to assume room temperature. It gave me reason to want to recover but the round-the-clock coverage of the event on TV, even on Fox, got very tedious. The cable choices in the hospital were very limited.
Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment.
I agree with Ann that Ted Kennedy was pestilence.
I do not agree with her choice for Presidential candidacy.
Romney isn’ta choice it’s just a white face in place of the darker toned one we have there now.
Wow! You miss him THAT much?! :-)
"That stupid, lying, idiot RINO Coulter does not know
we felons and frauds so LOVE each other, Sal."
What “Obamacare debate”, Mike. Seems to me that Reid & Pelosi just rammed it through on a straight party-line vote.
Coincidentally, I heard Ann describe Kennedy as The Human Dirigible in one of her CPAC addresses.
Damn! Ann just keeps getting more beautiful.
I suspect too many of them inhabit the same dank corners as the Swimmer and Sofa King. They are probably just happy that fat ted's departure freed up some space in the sewer and cleared out a bit of the stench.
They cry about partisanship but the problem is that they all get along soooo well.
Ann, who has a nack of picking the wrong candidate year after year after year, doesn’t think we even need to discuss the issues or have a primary. We should rally around someone who is wild card. He’s a liberal republican at best, and likely a moderate who will compromise at every turn.
She won’t even listen or consider someone like Newt. I’m very disappointed in her, but clearly she’s off base here if she thinks Romney is the best choice.
Obama and company will tag the guy as a racist and drag the Mormon faith into it. By the end, people will be afraid to vote for him.
Hey, folks, be easy on Ted Kennedy, he’s been sober since August 25, 2009.
Newt “No Child Left Behind, Mandatory Health Care, Global Warming, Prescription Drugs, TARP” Gingrich is no better than Romney. If you want to waste your vote on him, however, feel free to do so.
I thought it was now verboten to quote Ann Coulter favorably on FR. IBTZ?
Ann Coulter-”Whenever we run a moderate Republican, we lose.” 7.8.2008
Conservative fraud Ann Coulter says the opposite of what she’s recently said, here in a 2008 interview.
Why is Newsbusters promoting Ann Coulter?
Well, okay. He's been pretty dry since then.
Except for his buddies who've been pouring bourbon on his grave. The crickets and worms like it.
The truth will out, won’t it Mark?
I have little sympathy for that slimeball. I remember his Robert Bork speech.
AFA Mizz Coulter goes, see my tagline.
Yes, and you have to ask yourself, "Could I carry on friendly association with someone I knew was a rapist and killer, or that I knew was involved in massive graft with his sex partners?" My answer would be no.
However, if a person doesn't think there's anything wrong with rape or prostitution or graft, well ... he's a politician, isn't he?
I’d really like to see a barnacle blink.
