Late yesterday, the greatest woman of her generation answered questions about her ordeal.
No, I'm not talking about Paris Hilton on Larry King, I'm talking about Ann Coulter on what it was like being ambushed by, arguably, America's richest floozie on America's lowest rated talk show.
Her column was late in posting, and I thought we might have to wait a week to get her reaction, but alas, it's here. And though there is nothing that's really unexpected, what's so great about Ann Coulter, is that she doesn't mince words no matter how handicapped her attackers may have been, and in that respect, I'm often a little surprised by the words she doesn't mince.
No one could successfully argue that John Edwards is not slime, but some would certainly try to defend his wife against such a charge. At least they might have before today with Tin Lizzie's attempt to capitalize on her once-in-a-lifetime chance to converse with true greatness – and which she handled about as well as her hubby's desperate effort to earn points at the expense of Dick Cheney's gay daughter.
Wasting no time, Mrs. Edwards rushed to solicit funds for Johnnie-are-you-queer-boy's rapidly failing run for the Democratic Presidential nomination, and this time, The Edwardses decided that mentioning Coulter's name would raise more cash than if they invoked the name of their dead son.
Unless maybe Elizabeth didn't consult with her attorney as she claimed not to have done before her carefully composed Coulter confrontation – CCCC?
In any case, Ann Coulter, more than anyone else, represents what America should be, as opposed to what it will be if she were brought down. Just one example: Ann would not allow anyone who is here illegally to become a citizen. Amazingly, that's controversial, and it is because America's values have fallen so low that people are willing to overlook what they consider to be small transgressions if they consider them to be transgressions at all.
Now, if there were a project you didn't want to do, and someone came onto your property and did it, would you make him part of your family? You'd be thankful, sure, you'd compensate him, and then you'd tell him to get off your property.
So Ms. Coulter has my undying admiration, and I leave you with this quote from her:
"I'm more of a man than any liberal is."
Yes, and more of a woman, too, Ann…
In fact, are there any liberal women? I mean, I know there are liberal females, but… women?
And you've been so good, here's a bonus:
"I'm the illegal alien of commentary, I'll do the jokes no one else will do."
