Ann Coulter Presented As Expert In Tastefulness In Discussion About Letterman's Remarks About Palin

Reported by Ellen - June 13, 2009 -

On Wednesday night (6/10/09), two-time voter-fraud suspect Ann Coulter was welcomed back on Hannity to reprise her role as an authority on tasteful remarks. There was no mention of the legal hot water she’s in despite Fox’s fixation on voter fraud when it seems to be Democrats or minorities involved. Instead, she was asked to “weigh in” on that meanie David Letterman who cracked a few personal jokes about Sarah Palin and her daughter. After Coulter and Sean Hannity had smeared Democrats and falsely painted themselves and conservatives as being above making personal attacks, Coulter took a gratuitous slap at Michelle Obama’s dress. Hannity did not object. With video.

In his introduction, Hannity complained about the “vicious, vicious” attacks on Palin from the left. He went on to gripe that the attacks had become “increasingly personal and have even been directed at her family.” This, from the same guy who relentlessly smears Michelle Obama. And he was calling on the woman who described John Edwards as a faggot to provide what was supposed to be “fair and balanced” analysis.

Coulter, whose words were only slightly slurred during this appearance (unlike her total confusion during her catastrophic "boombox” appearance), immediately used the occasion to smear Letterman’s wife. “Now that the families are open to this, have ya seen the wife?” (Her emphasis.)There was no objection from Hannity. Ms. Tasteful went on to make the nonsensical smear, “Ummm, I think every time liberal males see a female who’s identifiable as a female, they think, they call them slutty stewardesses.”

Instead of denouncing Letterman, Coulter crowed at new opportunities for smearing. “I guess Sasha and Malia (Obama) are fair game for comedians now.”

Hannity later said, “I’ve watched you speak in public and I can’t see you going after Barack Obama’s daughters. I can’t see you going after the children of politicians.” No, "Boomie" Coulter “only” went after the widows of 9/11 victims, saying "I have never seen people enjoying their husband’s death so much." Classy.

“People didn’t go after Chelsea Clinton,” Coulter said. Well, except for people like John McCain and Rush Limbaugh. Nevertheless, she claimed, “This is a rule that has never been subscribed to by liberals.”

“It’s so over the line, it’s so overwhelming,” the suddenly sensitized Coulter said about the attacks on Palin. “I think if I were a comedian and I had a good joke about Sasha and Malia, that’s fair game now.”

Hannity said, “I can’t imagine anyone talking about a slutty, flight-attendant look if they’re talking about Michelle Obama or Hillary Clinton. Or any Democratic woman.”

Oh, no? What about Juan Williams' remark on The O'Reilly Factor, "(Michelle Obama's) got the Stokely-Carmichael-in-a-designer-dress thing going.” Or how about Fox’s own Megyn Kelly saying, "I stand by my comments on the Michelle Obama dress...bluish-green is not the color for these women." (My emphasis.)

“Imagine if (Palin) took her family on a paid vacation to a Broadway show,” Hannity continued, once again hilariously forgetting about the numerous vacations Palin DID take her family on, for which she has had to reimburse the State of Alaska. He added, “Or if she didn’t know the difference between Veterans’ Day and Memorial Day.” Or if she made the claim she had foreign policy experience because Russia is close to Alaska or if she was stumped when asked to explain whether or not she agreed with the Bush Doctrine.

Coulter cackled. “I can top that,” she slurred. “What if she wore that outfit Michelle Obama was wearing today?” Coulter tossed her head back and forth with malicious glee.

So did Hannity say, “Stop that! We’re above those kinds of attacks?” No, he laughed and said, “I didn’t see it. What was she wearing?”
