Skip to comments.Ted Rall Says He Might Sue Ann Coulter for Holocaust Cartoon Remark
Posted on 02/13/2006 5:31:00 PM PST by Anti-Bubba182
NEW YORK Columnist Ann Coulter made a provocative remark Friday about "Doonesbury" creator Garry Trudeau and editorial cartoonist Ted Rall. Trudeau is shrugging it off, but Rall is considering a lawsuit.
Coulter reportedly said Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C.: "Iran is soliciting cartoons on the Holocaust. So far, only Ted Rall, Garry Trudeau, and The New York Times have made submissions."
Giving her remark another twist is the fact that the conservative Coulter has the same distributor -- Universal Press Syndicate -- as the liberal Rall and Trudeau.
When asked Monday if he wanted to respond to Coulter's comment, Trudeau told E&P via e-mail: "Nah."
Rall announced on his blog that he would look into taking legal action against Coulter if readers of his blog wanted him to -- and if they pledged the $6,000 needed to draft and file a lawsuit in New York........"
Rall is a pussy, he'll never do it.
That is a riot! Geez, have a little humour, Rall. Indeed. Here's one cartoon that kind of sums it up that everybody can understand. Well, except maybe for the stuck on stupid types. Like Rall, for example.
She should have insulted his manhood, he's got none.
What's ironic about Rall's threat to sue a public person is that this is the technique of holocaust denier David Irving with Deborah Lipstadt. This trial was held in London where the libel laws are very very tough.
Sue for ?????? I thought you needed a reason to sue somebody?
Ted Rall's reputation is such that it's impossible to defame him.
And it seems hypocritical for him to complain about defamation.
Rall is a coward. And a cheap one at that.
I'd bet the four or five people who read his blog wouldn't pony up enough for a filing fee.
From the article: "Rall announced on his blog that he would look into taking legal action against Coulter if readers of his blog wanted him to -- and if they pledged the $6,000 needed to draft and file a lawsuit in New York.
"If enough 'yes' votes come in with enough serious pledges, I'll see Ann in court," wrote Rall. "If not, well, chalk up another victory for the Right."
Clever of Rall, isn't it? He wants the readers of his blog to believe that their generous donations may actually contribute to the defeat of the "Right".....LOL.
I hope he does sue. It was a good gag by Ann. It needs wider exposure.
I forgot she said that; I hope he keeps her comedy alive.
Yes, Rall IS a pussy and Ann Coulter could literally beat him up - as skinny and weak as she is. I pray (PRAY) that he actually files suit. It would finally bring the attention to this *sshole and what he has been saying that would result in another huge backlash again the left.
What an ass.
What kind of idiot sues an attorney? Think his fans will cough up $100,000 for this fantasy?
Fanatics like Rall never have a sense of humor.
Would someone please check with Sen McCain's office on this one...
And, last but not least - I hereby volunteer to sit on the Jury if I am guaranteed a front row seat.
RULES - GENTLEMEN - RULES!
