CELEBRITY DEATH MATCH (Mrs. Edwards vs. Ms. Coulter)

Former Senator and current wimp John Edwards has taken to hiding behind his wife’s skirt and using her to address Ann Coulter on his behalf. Mrs. Edwards called into Chris Matthews’ show “Hardball” on Tuesday to ask Coulter to halt the attacks on her husband.

Coulter has been quoted widely in the left-stream media as saying on Good Morning America, that she wished John Edwards had been killed by terrorists.

This is a misquote. And when the actual quote is put into its proper context, she didn’t wish that at all. But I’ve checked as many sources as I could this evening and couldn’t find one that quoted Ms. Coulter accurately.

So I went to the source; a clip from GMA showing the actual interview. This is what went down, and what was said:

She was citing Bill Maher’s suggestion in March that “people wouldn’t be dying needlessly” if Vice President Dick Cheney had been killed in Afghanistan in an insurgent attack. And Maher was NOT joking.

What happened was she was commenting, in response to questioning, on her calling Edwards a “faggot” (which is also a misquote) and the firestorm her remark caused.

So she referenced Maher’s remarks about Cheney, and commented on the fact that no one seemed to have a problem with him saying that. “So I learned my lesson and If I’m going to say anything about John Edwards in the future, I’ll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot.”

If you can’t see the tongue-in-cheek in that, then buck up and go buy yourself a little sense of humor and stop at the spa for a little skin thickening. Or, take your pills!

And while you’re at it, you might want to donate a couple cans of Man to the Edwards campaign.

Again, I couldn’t find one mainstream outlet quoting her in context. Yet not a word about His Idiocy, Bill Maher!
