Have you heard the insane Ann Coulter's newest verbal diarrhea?? She wished that John Edwards would be "killed in a terrorist assassination plot." Hmm--and here I thought that conservatives like her were anti-terror. Silly me. Of course we all know it's just a bumper sticker phrase for them and tool to exploit for elections.
Elizabeth Edwards actually called up Hardball on MSNBC to talk to Coulter and took the high road asking her to stop the hate. That is highly commendable but it won't work because hate and vitriol is all that Coulter knows.
Why does the MSM let this loony on their shows if they have "learned their lesson" with the Don Imus affair?!! I'll tell you why--they know that she will say absurd, shocking things that will bring attention and ratings to their shows and thus more money for the corporate elite.
They are willing to take that chance in the name of profits because if a "flap" arises over comments like this then they'll simply not have her back. Thus they won't be out any money or experience much loss of viewers because they'll hold some other shiny object in front of our eyes to distract us. That is how stupid and clueless this country has become.
The MSM use to be the champions of the people who didn't have a voice and who were not being heard by their politicians. Now, however, they have become bottom feeders who add fuel to the fire of lowering the bar of political discourse in this country. This is because they are now more worried about making obscene amounts of money then representing the rational, logical, sensible side of America.
And they wonder why the blogosphere is so popular.
I'm starting to believe in the premise behind the movie Idiocracy that we are becoming dumber and dumber as a society and as a result we are become lazier and and more irresponsible when it comes to the things that matter.
At least though the Edwards campaign is getting donations because of her hateful drivel.
The other upside is that Dems win when she speaks because it just shows how crazy the right wing has become.
The REAL news of the day--the Cheney subpoena is mostly being swept under the rug. Speaking of which the Congress has yet to hear from the Vice President's office. Cheney is an arrogant son of a bitch to not even respond one way or another to a legislative subpeona.
