Conservative author Ann Coulter sparked a storm today after describing a group of Sept. 11 widows as millionaire "witches" who were "reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by "grief-arazzis."
"I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much," she writes in her new book "Godless: The Church of Liberalism."
Her criticism was aimed at four New Jersey women whom she dubbed "The Witches of East Brunswick," after the town where two of them live. They have spent the years since the 2001 terror attacks supporting an independent commission to examine government failures before the attack, and in the 2004 presidential campaign they endorsed Democrat John Kerry.
The four, Kristen Breitweiser, Patty Casazza, Mindy Kleinberg and Lorie Van Auken — who headed a campaign that led to creation of the Sept. 11 Ccommission — issued a statement saying they had been slandered.
"There was no joy in watching men that we loved burn alive. There was no happiness in telling our children that their fathers were never coming home again. We adored these men and miss them every day," they said.
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) lashed out at Coulter for a "vicious, mean-spirited attack," and added, "perhaps her book should have been called 'Heartless'" instead of "Godless."
GOI: I was listening to a local radio show host this afternoon characterize Ann Coulter's comments as being "humor." That is a sick, twisted and yes, DOWN RIGHT EVIL, Sociopathic sense of humor. So I figured that I would talk about her in a way that she would understand.
Ann Coulter is a sack of shit with human skin wrapped around her skeletor body. That she is a sack of shit is evident in that the only thing that comes out of that decaying orriface asshole of a mouth is disgusting, dirty, filty, toxic diarrhea. She is the freak show, clownish "Queen of Mean" that can only sell books by being over the top and sladerous (which is ironic because she actually wrote a book titled "Slander"). Did I go to far?? I'm sorry i'm just being "humorous."
