Ann Coulter - Republican Spokesperson

This is a point that everyone should be making about the nutjob.

There are lots of nuts on the left side of the political spectrum. However, they are babbling on streetcorners where they belong.

The right, on the other hand, takes its lunatics, they turn the lunatics into pundits and they make the lunatics wealthy.

As long as they keep buying her book, and placing her on talk shows, she represents them, and that IS the face of the Republican Party.

Rahm Emmanuel (D-Illinois) to the Republicans:

Emmanuel: "Mr. Speaker, as United States citizens, we are blessed with many freedoms, among those is the right to freely speak our minds. While Freedom of Speech is one of the things that makes our country great, it also means we have to endure the words of a hatemonger like Ann Coulter. In her new book, the goddess of the Right slanders the 9/11 widows, writing, and I quote, "these broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by griefarazzies. I have never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much." Lest Mrs—Lest Ms. Coulter forget, more than 3,000 Americans were killed simply because they lived in the United States.

"That doesn't matter to Ms. Coulter because she's doing it to enrich herself. But there is something more sinister in Ms. Coulter's words: The hate she spews is the same kind of hatred we're battling in the war on terror. As a country of thought and reason, I urge all of us to reject it. I must ask my colleagues on the other side of the aisle: Does Ann Coulter speak for you when she suggests poisoning [..] Supreme Court Justices or slanders the 9/11 windows—widows? If not, speak now. Your silence allows her to be your spokesman."
