I stopped listening to her remarks on talk shows and reading her columns about 2 years ago when I found her schtick to be just as despicable as that of extreme Left nutjobs. Coulter’s remarks on the Today Show with Matt Lauer were so over-the-top that I cannot understand why anyone even pays attention to her anymore:
LAUER: On the 9-11 widows, and in particular a group that had been critical of the administration:
[quoting from Coulter’s new book] “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.”
And this part is the part I really need to talk to you about:
“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.” Because they dare to speak out?
COULTER: To 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 always have to respond to someone who just had a family member die–
LAUER: But aren’t they in the middle of the story?…
COULTER: …Because then if we respond, oh you are questioning their authenticity. No, the story is…
LAUER: So grieve but grieve quietly? What I’m saying is I don’t think they have ever told you, you can’t respond.
COULTER: Look, you are getting testy with me.
Outside the Beltway has a link to the video excerpt from this interview.
She seems to have a desperate need for attention and feeds this by being more outrageous each time she opens her mouth. Why that’s the very thing I despise about the Looney Left. The irony here is that I myself would probably criticize the women Coulter speaks about, but to accuse them of “enjoying their husband’s death”? No, this is just as reprehensible as the blather from the Kossacks and their mentor in lunacy, Michael Moore.

UPDATE (from GPW): This is not the first time this blog has taken on Ms. Coulter. Just over a year ago, I noted that even some conservatives find her media persona hard to take.
