Ann Coulter and Elizabeth Edwards UPDATE

We showed you yesterday that Elizabeth Edwards called in to Hardball with Chris Matthews to ask Ann Coulter to stop "personal attacks" on her poor husband....evidently he cannot speak for himself....well today the president of the Media Research Center (MRC), Brent Bozell has a statement issued.

ALEXANDRIA, VA --- Elizabeth Edwards, wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, arranged a call-in Tuesday to MSNBC’s Hardball, hosted by Chris Matthews, and criticized conservative author Ann Coulter for peddling “hatefulness and ugliness” and repeatedly asked Coulter “to stop the personal attacks.” Today, on her husband’s blog, Mrs. Edwards calls on people to help stop Coulter’s “hate words,” the “words of bigotry and division,” to help “drum out the hate-mongers from amongst us.”

In response to Mrs. Edwards’ comments, MRC President Brent Bozell issued the following statement:

“Elizabeth Edwards should look close to home when it comes to ‘hatefulness and ugliness’ for it was her husband’s Democratic presidential campaign that hired two official bloggers who attacked ‘Christofascists’ and insulted Christians and their faith in the most repulsive words imaginable, which I won’t repeat here. Go Google Amanda Marcotte and Holy Spirit.

“As for Ann Coulter, don’t be fooled by the smoke and mirrors orchestrated by the liberal Democrat Elizabeth Edwards and her advisers in the Democratic Party. This attack on Ann Coulter, a conservative writer, is part of the liberals’ plan to squash free speech by conservatives. They want to silence Coulter, as well as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Michelle Malkin, and many others. Hugo Chavez does this type of censoring in Venezuela—but in America, we don’t.

“Nonetheless, Senators Kerry and Durbin this week called for restoring the Fairness Doctrine—government-enforced equal time for liberals on talk radio—and John Podesta, former chief of staff to President Clinton, released a hatchet-job report last week calling for regulations to fix the supposed imbalance in political talk radio.

“The liberals cannot sell their product—liberal talk radio—in the marketplace, so they are planning to use the power of government to stop conservatives from selling their product, conservative talk radio. Liberals don’t believe in free exchange, tolerance, or the marketplace of ideas. They believe in the iron boot of liberalism stamping out any view that upsets the liberal apple cart. Mrs. Edwards’ attack on Coulter is just another volley in the liberals’ attack on conservative writers and conservative talk radio.”

I am amused. VERY amused.

Why am I so amused?

The lefts idiocy once again rears its ugly head as well as their hypocritical example, Crooks and Liars. (The name alone should have warned me that all I would read there is lies, but hey, I held my nose and bit the bullet and clicked the link anyway. It smells BAD over there though.)

The Republicans can’t compete in a creative environment so they try to stop free expression, and then accuse us of what they’re always doing. It’s laughable that Bozell would be so worried about regulation of free speech and government control when he has used it at every turn.

There is so many lies in this post I am starting with this one because it is the most laughable.

1st. The Republicans and conservatives have been trouncing all the liberal radio and cable news shows as witnessed with Fox holding higher ratings than any liberal tilting news station as well as the conservative radio shows kicking all the liberal radios shows asses, as witnessed by Rush being so popular and Air America going bankrupt.

Hence the reason the Democrats are the ones begging for the Fairness Doctrine to be enacted again, they would prefer state regulated media than independent media, if that is the case... hey, move to Iran or North Korea...don't let the door kick you in the ass on our way out either.

That was lie number one.

And if he was being honest, he would admit that Elizabeth Edwards merely called in and asked Coulter to stop using personal attacks which lowers the bar of political debate in this country. Is he trying to say that Republicans think it’s acceptable to wish death by terrorist attack on a presidential candidate?

First off, the comment is being deliberately misrepresented because last I heard, Crooks and Liars as well as other liberal blogs didn't have one problem with Bill Maher wishing the Vice President of the United States of America dead, yet Coulter saying and I am going give you the REAL quote since Crooks and Liars writers are too dishonest to tell their readers the truth;

Coulters comment:

"But about the same time, you know, Bill Maher was not joking and saying he wished Dick Cheney had been killed in a terrorist attack -- so I've learned my lesson: 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."

Whats good for the goose and all that jazz.

Once again a far left liberal blogger proves everything we say about them.

They are INCAPABLE of being honest and when quotes are soooooo easy to find on the internet, that also makes them very stupid indeed.

Coulter's parting shot also gave me a laugh:

I'm a little tired of losers trying to raise campaign cash or TV ratings off of my coattails, particularly when they use their afflictions or bereavement schedules to try to silence the opposition. From now on, I'm attacking only serious presidential candidates, like Dennis Kucinich.

The problem here is, as good ole jack once said in A Few Good Men... THEY CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH.

So they make up lies and trust that their readers are too stupid or gullible to look up the truth for themselves.

Hey, at least Crooks and Liars gave me a hearty laugh so I suppose I should say thanks.
