Bomb Throwing Pacifist

If you took that happy, smiling guy from the box of Quaker Oats, handed him a bottle of gin and a rifle, and pissed him off to a point where he decided he wasn't going to take it anymore, you'd get a little something like this.

This takes the cake

You know, of all the right wing screamers and shrill, gay-bashing, minority-bating, flag-waving, gun-toting, free market zillionaires out there who regularly go out and play attack politics as though it was a game of sandlot baseball, most of all I loathe Ann Coulter. However, her comments to Matt Lauer this morning truly take the cake. This is what she had to say about the 9/11 Widows.
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 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 husbands' death so much.
Oh. My. God. Just reread that first line from her statement, let it sink in, and then reread it again, for good measure. If you need any further confirmation that the woman is pure evil, you need look no further. The evidence is before you.

The best part though is this statement she made to Matt Lauer when he interviewed her.

COULTER: [They] speak out using the fact they are widows. This is the left’s doctrine of infallibility. If they have a point to make about the 9-11 commission, about how to fight the war on terrorism, how about sending in somebody we are allowed to respond to. No. No. No. We have to respond to someone who had a family member die. Because then if we respond, oh you are questioning their authenticity.

LAUER: So grieve but grieve quietly?

COULTER: No, the story is an attack on the nation.

That requires a foreign policy response. That pretty much sums up the whole situation for you. The right has failed miserably in everything it has done. It is rotten to the core, and unfortunately, the people who were the most affected by the event they use to justify and excuse every mostrosity they have carried out in America's name take a stand against them. And it pisses them off to no end because the 9/11 Widows are not on their side, do not like their president, and will not shy away from critisizing this administration's incompetence and failures.

And all of a sudden, the vicious ad hominem attacks and insults the reich wingers use against their traditional opponents on the left are suddenly ineffective. They really, really, really, REALLY want to be able to call the 9/11 widows cowards, traitors, appeasers, enablers, dhimmis, and the like. But the can't, because they get called out on it- and rightfully so. Becauce to do so would put you on the same level as people who claim that mutilated Iraqi civillians are secretely happy that they lost their limbs and family members, just so they could have their 5 minutes of fame as anti-war advertisements for the left. Or if someone accused FDR of being secretly happy he had Polio, as that would automatically generate sympathy and cause reporters to treat him with kid gloves during his term as president. It just doesn't get much dumber than that.

It takes a special breed of wingnut to throw caution to the wind and jump off the bridge without a bungee cord, just to say you can. Fortunately, most wingnuts are not quite that dumb. But if you are desperate and turly in need of some wacky, viscious, snivelling, snarky, and just plain EVIL wingnuttery, just call Ann Coulter. She's your man.
