Glenn makes a great point...

Glenn Beck made a great statement today: If Ann Coulter's husband had died on 9/11 would the New York Times have gone easier on her when they reviewed her book (Godless - The Church of Liberalism)? Of course they wouldn't have gone easier on her. Silly Liberals - do as they say, not as they do!

Article from The New York Post:

June 7, 2006 -- WASHINGTON - Conservative rabble-rouser Ann Coulter created an uproar among 9/11 victims' families yesterday after she charged in her new book that a group of "self-obsessed" politically active widows are enjoying their husbands' deaths.
The razor-tongued blond polemicist made unflattering remarks about the high-profile widows who liked to call themselves the "Jersey girls." In Coulter's latest book, "Godless," she calls them "harpies" and the "Witches of East Brunswick."
"I have never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much," Coulter wrote.
It was the most stinging attack on 9/11 victims' families since al Qaeda conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui took the witness stand.
And it created a firestorm and drew a quick response from the widows.
"There was no joy in watching the men we love die in the World Trade Center. There was no happiness in telling our children that they would never see their fathers again," Mindy Kleinberg of East Brunswick, N.J., whose husband died in the World Trade Center, told The Post last night.
"We are trying to make sure that nobody else walks in our footsteps. And if she [Coulter] thinks that's wrong, so be it," Kleinberg added.

"Like an insecure child, it's always been clear that Ann Coulter is prepared to do anything to get attention. Even for someone like her who crawls along the sordid bottom of the media world, this is a new low," said Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.).
A group of New Jersey 9/11 widows - Kleinberg, Kristin Breitweiser, Patty Casazza and Lorie Van Auken - created headlines by pushing for a wide examination of intelligence and security failures that eventually led to the creation of the 9/11 commission.
In 2004, they endorsed Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, fiercely denounced President Bush and participated in political ads using images from the attacks - actions that prompted Coulter's attack.
"These self-obsessed women seemed genuinely unaware that 9/11 was an attack on our nation and acted as if the terrorist attacks happened only to them. The whole nation was wounded, all our lives reduced. But they believed the entire country was required to marinate in their exquisite personal agony," Coulter said.
"These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzis."
Coulter accused the four widows of "trying to convert their personal tragedy into a weapon to dictate national policy."
And then she got personal.
"And by the way, how do we know their husbands weren't planning to divorce these harpies? Now that their shelf life is dwindling, they'd better hurry up and appear in Playboy," Coulter said.
Coulter, 45, a well-known columnist and author, has been a conservative lightning rod for years. Her appearances on college campuses frequently have been met with angry protests.
She could not be reached for comment last night.
But yesterday, in a testy exchange with host Matt Lauer on NBC's "Today" show, Coulter was unapologetic about her insults on the 9/11 widows.
"They were cutting commercials for Kerry and using their grief to make a political point," Coulter said.
"It's a dramatic statement: 'These broads are millionaires'?" Lauer asked, citing the book.
"Yeah," she replied.
" 'I have never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much'?" Lauer pressed.
"Yes. They are all over the news," Coulter said.


I didn't realize that Ann Coulter even had a new book out until this story showed up a few days ago. I can't wait to go and buy it on Friday.....
