I watched Joe Scarborough this morning on MSNBC. He really likes to listen to himself talk and he gets paid for it. Good for him. Sometimes I like him and sometimes, not so much. He has been talking about Ann Coulter all morning. He says he isn't defending her, but he still doesn't get it. He keeps calling people that don't agree with him stupid....nice, real nice.
Here's the thing. Ann Coulter has said some horrible things about John Edwards. Joe's contention is that she was making a joking reference to the Isaiah Washington issue by calling John Edwards a faggot. Uh, okay....not funny. Joe also contends that when she said she should just say that John Edwards should be killed by a terrorist attack, that she was jokingly referring to what Bill Maher said about Cheney. Again....not funny.
He doesn't understand why people were not outraged by Bill Maher, but they were outraged by Ann Coulter's comments. Excuse me, doesn't Ann Coulter tout herself as a political analyst/pundit? Bill Maher is .....wait for it.....A COMEDIAN!
Bill Maher....funny. Ann Coulter....NOT. She will say anything to sell more books, but as Elizabeth Edwards pointed out to her in a phone call, she debases the whole political commentary going on in this country. She tries to bring us all down to her level. She is pathetic.
That is all.
