John Edwards Can’t Hide Behind His Wife This Time
Posted by Mike on August 6, 2008
Do you ever get the feeling that John “Polly Prissy Pants” Edwards is Ann Coulter’s favorite target? I don’t if that has anything to do with the fact that the former Democrat Vice Presidential nominee is also one of the easiest targets out there, but she sure does seem to enjoy herself when he is the topic.
Today’s Coulter column is of course about the mainstream media’s silence over the story about John Edwards cheating on his cancer-stricken wife compared to their reactions to conservative scandals. According to Annie C., the media’s burning to desire to cover for the Silkster has caused them to refrain from reporting anything about the possible future Cabinet member. She even goes as far to proclaim:
Do you know what this means? At this precise moment in time, I could call Edwards a name that would send me to rehab, and the media wouldn’t be able to report it!
This woman is a genius. On the one hand, the media can’t report anything about Edwards because that would make him newsworthy again, thereby making it more difficult for them to ignore the obvious. On the other hand, here they have Ann Coulter hurling a politically incorrect insult at one of their favorite politicians. Now there’s a dilemma that won’t send a thrill up Chris Matthews’ leg.
This isn’t the first time Ann Coulter has battled John Edwards, but something tells me John won’t be able to hide behind his wife this time.
