666=Ann Coulter

Ann Coulter's at it again. Here's what she had to say about 9/11 widows during an interview with the Today show's Matt Lauer this morning:
“These self-obsessed women seem genuinely unaware that 9-11 was an attack on our nation and acted like as if the terrorist attack only happened to them. They believe the entire country was required to marinate in their exquisite personal agony. Apparently, denouncing bush [sic] was part of the closure process ... These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by griefparrazies. I have never seen people enjoying their husband’s death so much.”
Think Progress has the transcript and a clip.

So Coulter's main argument is that you can't "respond to" a woman who lost her husband on 9/11, or someone like Cindy Sheehan because to do so would make it seem you question the "authenticity of their grief."

Bitch, don't even.

6-6-06. This is fun, but in a make-fun-of-the-superstitious-people kind of way. Of course, there's no such thing as gods, demons, angels, ghosts, et cetera.

But Ann Coulter ruins any fun today.

Nifty experiment: Put Ann Coulter and Kristen Breitweiser in a locked room with shatter-proof glass windows (for our entertainment), and watch how big and bad the Conservative Darling truly is. Nothing quite says "bravery" like telling a 9/11 widow to her face that she "enjoyed" her "husband's death."

World O' Crap has this transcript of Meet the Press in Hell, worthy of South Park, with Ann Coulter et al.

And, on the occasion of Coulter's appearance on Today, reran this item (from April, 2004) of a blood drive by conservative virgins on Coulter's behalf:

“We decided to have a blood drive…so that Ann could renew the unholy forces which animate her flesh by bathing in the blood of the innocent."
