Earlier today, the Today Show's Matt Lauer challenged fright-wing pundit Ann Coulter on this charming statement of hers:
"These self-obsessed women seem genuinely unaware that 9-11 was an attack on our nation and acted like as if the terrorist attack only happened to them. They believe the entire country was required to marinate in their exquisite personal agony. Apparently, denouncing bush was part of the closure process."
Then Matt said "and this part is the part I really need to talk to you about: 'These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by griefparrazies. I have never seen people enjoying their husband's death so much.'
"Because they dare to speak out?," Matt then asked.
Ann Coulter then said something to the effect that the left loves the fact that by being widows, these women exude a certain gravitas of quotability.
Well, Ann, if you believe these are "reveling," "millionaire" "broads," then I invite you to be a fly on the wall tonight.
A fly on the wall as one of these widows looks at her dead husband's picture on her desk and remembers the finer times.
A fly on the wall as one of these widows looks at the other side of what was her marriage bed and sees no one there.
A fly on the wall as one of these widows introduces a new male friend to her children, and they instantaneously- yet only to themselves, wonder if he will be as kind and as loving to their mother as their slain father was.
A fly on the wall as one of these widows listens to a new audio tape by Osama Bin Laden, and wonders why the man who was the ultimate mastermind of her husband's murder has not been caught.
A fly on the wall as one of these widows kneels in prayer, looks up to heaven at the projected presence of her slain husband's spirit, and with tears in your eyes, says, "I am doing this (speaking out) for you - because you can't, sweetheart."
A fly on the wall as one of these widows reads or hears Ann Coulter's hurtful, spiteful words and damns Ann Coulter to hell.
I am no authority on the next life, Ann Coulter, but I know something about this life.
And in this life, consigning you to "bitch-dom" is too kind an assignation.
I've got a better word for you, Ann Coulter.
The word that rhymes with what football teams often do on fourth down.
