Elizabeth Edwards- Liar

Elizabeth Edwards is a big fat liar.

Ms. Edwards Asks Coulter to Stop Attacks

Elizabeth Edwards pleaded Tuesday with Ann Coulter to "stop the personal attacks," a day after the conservative commentator said she wished Edwards' husband, Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, had been killed by terrorists.

"The things she has said over the years, not just about John but about other candidates, lowers the political dialogue [sic] at precisely the time we need to raise it," Edwards said by phone on MSNBC's "Hardball" program, where Coulter was a guest.

Only problem with Ms. Edwards' story... It was a lie. Coulter was talking about the press reports controversial things that liberals (ie Bill Maher) say vs conservatives.

Watch the video of what she said. In the first 30 seconds you realize the liberals and the media (I know, same thing) are full of crap.



Ironically, the response from the media exactly proved Coulter's point to the letter. They ignored her point and took her out of context while giving Bill Maher a pass. The exact thing she was complaining about. The media is too stupid to realize they've just been pwned.

Meanwhile, here's what I understand are the words Coulter said.

"If I'm going to say anything about John Edwards in the future, I'll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot,"

Does that quote match your understanding?

And if you listen to Ms. Edwards' phone call you realize that she was listed a litany of complaints abut Coulter's low blows, not just this one.

The what do you believe she says, Paul? It sure sounds like --

Yep, I just listened two more times and that's exactly what she said.

Isn't that a fact, Paul? Or are you going to deny it despite the fact hat everyone can click on the video in your post and listen for themselves?

She said:

Um- so I've learned my lesson...

If I'm going to say anything about John Edwards in the future, I'll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot,"

If you can't see she is talking about the way the media ignored Maher's comments then you're a moron.

I'm not an Ann-fan, so-to-speak, but anyone, esp. Edwards, getting on Coulter without looking to what their supporters are saying are flat out hypocrites.

Then again, that's not news, either.

What is news is that John Edwards' wife defends him against being called a wuss.

It speaks volumes that that troll Bill Maher gets applause from his stacked audience, with NO outcry for his Cheney comment, but Ann, a forceful (and more often than not - accurate) woman gets whined at.

Back to the topic, I'm not really an Ann Coulter, and I might even have agreed with Elizabeth Edwards if she had gone on the show to legitimately complain about Coulter's divisive name-calling. But she didn't do that. She brought up these bogus incidents and all in a transparent attempt to raise more funds for her husband's faltering campaign. Thankfully for her, there are enough idiotic liberals like Lee who won't question her phony BS.

Paul, you are a legend in your own mind, but you knew that already....

And I 'get' the context - Coulter is quite the wordsmith, and just like her statement that (paraphrasing) "calling John Edwards a faggot is an insult to gays" isn't really actually calling Edwards a faggot -

get it -

get the context -- she didn't "call " Edwards a faggot she said that "if she did..."

Here her ohhh so controversial statement was indirect as well. The words, her actions, her history speaks for itself, and to have the right defend her in this is wonderful. More posts like this Paul.

Edwards handed her her head an a platter - and watching Coulter squirm on Hardball was pure gold.

mantis:

Oh, speaking of the Maher comment, here's what Lee had to say in response to Kim's post about it:

"Bill Maher Argues for VP Cheney's Assassination." Coulter gets her tongue caught in a wringer and the "Conserv-o-Smear-o-Matic" lying machine goes into high gear, even employing the right's patented Distract-0-Matic as a secondary weapon.

Kim's headline "Bill Maher Argues for VP Cheney's Assassination" is lie. He didn't suggest -- much less argue -- in favor of Cheney's assasination; he stated that fewer people would die tomorrow if Cheney was was dead.

"Maher: I'm just saying if he did die, other people, more people would live. That's a fact."

So ignoring Kim's lie for the moment, why aren't any of the commenters here addressing the validity of Mahrer's statement?

Because it's true, that's why.

Lee, your "lie" accusations do not carry the currency you think they do. And flooding the market with them only decreases their value.

Liar!

So for Annie to be factual she would had to have said:
"John Edwards was not in power (which he is not) people wouldn't be dying needlessly tomorrow. If he did die, other people -- more people would live. That's a fact.

So Annie can't even tell the truth about her or Bill's quote. Paul, why are you defending this sack of ship?

Nope, she leveled her criticism at a regular ole fellow who was just working from day to day, trying to get by.

Some people think that by not admitting they're wrong, indeed, by trumpeting that they're right when they're obviously wrong, they can make others think they aren't wrong.

In other words, Lee declaring victory is an attempt at a self-fulling prophecy. Or the converse, Lee not admitting it was wrong is an attempt at trying to obfuscate the fact that it is, in fact, wrong.
That's my opinion on that. Yours has its merits though.

Context matters, Lee. The conversation on Maher's show started with this:

Maher: What about the people who got onto the Huffington Post - and these weren't even the bloggers, these were just the comments section - who said they, they expressed regret that the attack on Dick Cheney failed.

Then there was a discussion of how we are able to say things like that in this country, should Huffington have removed the comments, etc. And then,

Ridley: It's one thing to say you hate Dick Cheney, which applies to his politics. It's another thing to say, "I'm sorry he didn't die in an explosion." And I think, you know...

Maher: But you should be able to say it. And by the way...

Frank: Excuse me, Bill, but can I ask you a question? Do you decide what the topics are for this show?

Maher: Yeah, I decide the topics, they don't go there.

Frank: But you exercise control over the show the way that she does over her blog.

Maher: But I have zero doubt that if Dick Cheney was not in power, people wouldn't be dying needlessly tomorrow. (applause)

Scarborough: If someone on this panel said that they wished that Dick Cheney had been blown up, and you didn't say...

Frank: I think he did.

Scarborough: Okay. Did you say...

Maher: No, no. I quoted that.

Frank: You don't believe that?

Maher: I'm just saying if he did die, other people, more people would live. That's a fact.

The "if he did die" was clearly in the context of the assassination attempt. Maher was saying if Cheney had been assassinated, more people would live. I don't know how people argue for things where you come from, but where I come from they point out the potential benefits. Maher was obviously arguing that there would be benefits to a Cheney assassination, therefore he was arguing for it.

If you want to be honest and consistent, Lee, you can't say that Maher wasn't arguing for Cheney's death, and say that Coulter was calling Edwards a faggot. True, Maher used the word "die" instead of "killed" and Coulter didn't explicitly say "He is a faggot," but come on, we all know what they were saying.

What man in their right mind would want to spend the rest of their life with that creature, let alone reproduce? There's some desperate men out there but they ain't that desperate. No wonder Mannie has been engaged three times, but the men always leave her.

Elizabeth smacked down that elongated botoxed tranny just like she needed to be. Edwards was calm and rational, and Man Coulter just became more unhinged and resorts to spouting more personal smears, because that's all she can do. She's a one trick trick.

At ratings time? In hell? Dunno.

The Bush-sympathetic post cannot cover the undertaste of Republican woes under the incompetent W, though. Hailing a mis-managed war as Bush's high-water mark??? (Remember: Coulter rehearses her answers in front a mirror!)

PS: I'm a Republican, but give FDR his due: No, he didn't end the depression, but he staunched the flow of husbands, sons (and some daughters!) taking the hobo express in search of honest work (and dishonest) by distributing $12/mo. to keep families intact. Family values. And High-minded Globalist Hoover would never have done it. Wheat to Belgium, not one penny to the USA.

And would you rather eat your fried chicken at a WPA-built sandstone highway rest stop (circa. 1936, trees, pond, built to last, still there), or a poured concrete eyesore of a rest stop from the Eisenhower administration (that probably fell down 10 years after it was built?) Me too!

mantis: "Maher was saying if Cheney had been assassinated, more people would live.

Agreed.

"I don't know how people argue for things where you come from, but where I come from they point out the potential benefits."

Yes, If someone was arguing for Cheney' assassination, they would include the benefits -- a good argument would include the cost vs the benefits.

But talking about the benefits of driving slower on the freeway isn't in and of itself an argument that the speed limit should be lowered, now is it?

My statement that 'people driving 20 mph would result in fewer highway deaths' is pointing out the cause and effect of driving fast vs slow -- just as Maher's statement that if Cheney had died in an explosion and was therefore no longer in power fewer people would die on the battlefield is a cause and effect statement.

Claiming that I've advocated a 20 mph freeway speed limit just because I've pointed out the cause and effect of driving fast is bullshit. Just as it's bullshit to take Maher's cause and effect statement regarding Cheney being removed from power by death as call for his assassination. Total bullshit.

And -- as if the truth matters to anyone on this blog -- there is growing evidence that Cheney has exerted a lot more influence on policy in the White House than was previously known - and we're seeing new evidence of that all the time -- so Maher's cause and effect correlation between Cheney being no longer in power and people dying on the battle field rings truer every day.

suhnami:

Weeeeee more pointless arguements brought to mountainous heights from unimportant lows!!!! Very entertaining. Looks to me like everyone is taking everyhing out of context. I don't think Maher was out of line, he didn't wish Cheney was dead, he was stating an opinion. Not once does he say he wished he was dead. Coulter used that as a springboard for her comment, and in no way does she really wish Edwards would be killed. Again, not out of line, stating her opinion and making a point. Edward's wife reacted like, anyone would at the mentioning, joking or not, a scenario where your husband is killed. Sure, you could technically call her a liar in which case you win.... nothing. Other than pats on the back from your party constituents who think "It's devilish for THEM to say stuff, but OK for us because... [insert spun reason]". I'm sure if I said to any of you, "If you're spouse were dead..." no matter if I were agruing someone else's comment, joking, or whatever reason you'd be fairly upset. So, again, no middle ground reached, the left is evil, the right is pure and infallible, or vice versa, and then the childish name calling ensues. It doesn't change the fact that if Cheney were or were not in power, his friend would probably still be shot in the face, and for some reason that was of terrible importance to the world.

By the way, the C-section rate in the U.S. is astronomically higher than 95% of the countries. It is one of the things that causes defensive medicine by obstetricians, and also drives up the malpractice insurance rates so high for these physicians. That didn't get mentioned in Sicko.

In all my born days I never thought I would live to see anything like I read here today. Mantis, a lefty, a somewhat reasonable articulate one, posting truth for Lee the liar Ward to read. As Mantis has no doubt learn, what we here have known all along is that truth is not relevant to Lee Ward. Lee only uses part of things he thinks bolsters his faulty arguements. Why he was given a blog, I will never understand. It is not somehing that has enhances Wizbang. I visited Blew twice and both times had to comment how infantile they were. What Lee and the other leftists here have not realized is that by their foolingly falling into the thoughtful trap Ann set for them. The issue of what Maher said about Cheney is getting more coverage. What boobs.

"Wow, I wrote that? That's pretty cool, and I still stand by it. Maher's words were specific --"

And taken out of context to make it sound more benign. Just as you continue to take Coulter's words out of context to make them sound more malignant.

Lee, your MO is so transparent it's simply astounding that you think others will fall for it. (Well, it does seem that you have successfully pulled Barney in, hook, line and sinker. But, well hey - it's Barney)

Bill Maher said what he said in defense of those who were saying that they wished Cheney had been killed in a terrorist attack that had occurred in Afghanistan at the time he was there. There's your context. Or is "context" a completely foreign concept to you?

Jim, for once, said something completely agreeable. However, he said it with the accusation that Maher's words are being used by some here to justify Coulter's. Not true. The complaint, and I'll say this as plainly as possible, is that one is covered extensively by the press while the other is ignored. It's a double standard.

What Lee is saying here, trying to claim that it's just random facts with emotional detachment, is truly an abomination.

Saying if Cheney was killed by terrorists, more people would live is okay just as a factual, non-emotional, non argumentative consideration (per Lee).

Now that we've gone back and forth about Maher and included the actual quotes of what he said and didn't say about Cheney, it's easy to see how Coulter 'lied' (lol) in order to set up her "argument" (lol) that Edwards should be killed by terrorists - hat tip: mantis.

Coulter:

"About the same time Bill Maher said... but about the same time Bill Maher was not joking in saying he wished Dick Cheney had been killed by a terrorist attack.

Um- so I've learned my lesson...

If I'm going to say anything about John Edwards in the future, I'll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot,"

Coulter lies about what Maher said, claiming that 'Maher wished Cheney had been killed' when in fact reading the transcripts provided here on this comment thread you can see that he did not say that...

... and then she used that lie to give her license to say that about Edwards - the same way right wing bloggers lie then use that lie as a license to spew their bullshit.

I apologise in advance for changing some of the subject here, but see below some of Lee's venting on Blue. I agree, a shot of chlorine will help clean things up.

Larkin recommended that readers sign a Draft Gore petition.


Al Gore would be my choice hands down for President in 2008. He is by far the most experienced and qualified candidate from either side of the aisle. He served as Vice President for 8 years after a long career in the Senate. He is eloquent, intelligent, passionate and relentless. He is a proven winner having garnered a plurality of the popular votes in three successive elections (1992, 1996, and 2000); the first two as Vice President and the last as President.

I replied that I did so and would encourage other conservative friends to do same.

It seems that no one here is upset that Ann Coulter out and out called Bush a nincompoop. Neither conservatives or liberals. Could it be that we think she's entitled to her opinion? Nah, couldn't be, could it?

But let a liberal call one of their saintly liberal politicians a name like that and you guys would come out with both barrels blazing against them. Purity above all else, eh? Remind me again now of how liberals are sooooo tolerant....

Instead, liberals have their panties in a wad because another statement she made, taken out of context, made them cry. Wah!

civil behavior:

To all the have-nots on the Wiz train....here's a clue. Ann Coulter is a misfit. She tries hard to fit in with the Palm Beach socialities by ranting about wedgies they hold as the convincing arguments for all the fundies out there in Wiz land. That way they get their cake and eat yours too. In all ways she is a less than a commoner, in most educated areas she is more akin to street trash. Something unnecessary and increasingly irrelevant, to be thrown into the trash.

Of course she subscribes to her own ego thinking she is being accepted by the rich and famous all the while they are shunning her. It's a hoot. And all the wizzers keep tithing to her.

By the way Jo, I said Palm Beach Island not Palm Beach county, big difference, of course too subtle to escape your all inclusive repuke fantasy. These wealthy icons would sooner spit on you than include you in their club. But they love your ever so loyal idolatry. Fat oxy boy included. Lot's of wanna be's like the Wiz crowd who support these frauds keep them where they are and where you are. Laughable antics while being wizzed on.

To answer your foolish question- no I don't agree she was wrong. See, there's a difference between a right protected by the Constitution and the exercise of common decency, of which the shrew Coulter has none. I know it's hard for you wingnuts to accept that we actually have first amendment rights which Mrs Edwards was in no way abridging. Take a civics class and stop aping that fool Hannity.

Eliz Edward is more brazen than I thought and the the left was more dishonest in this event than I thought.

Back in 2005, people pointed out that the Edwards used their son 's death as prop.
http://www.sayanythingblog.com/entry/edwards_using_sons_death_as_political_tool/

And now they used it again for fund-raising. And this is a setup between Chris Matthews and Mrs. Edwars. The liberals seem to be willing to stoop to any level to push their agenda. ANd how can they be so cheap to make this stunt for fund?

When Ann Coulter appeared on the ABC program, GOOD MORNING AMERICA this week on June 25, and stated:"If I'm going to say anything about John Edwards in the future, I'll just wish that he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot", she deserves to be attacked by the wife of John Edwards.

ABC and HUMAN EVENTS have no business giving a political platform to anyone like Coulter who even jokes about such a serious event as terrorism on American soil impacting our high profile Americans. This is a dangerous taboo that our society should not break down because it will only invite terrorism and violence in the future if it is not seen as a seriously wrong taboo. Our society doesn't need to cross this line.

LoveAmerica Immigrant:

Chris Matthews was so dishonest that he allowed Mrs. Edwards to call in without giving the number to the public. If he wanted a debate between Mrs. Edwards and Ms. Coulter, set it up as such.

Mrs. Edwards was both hypocritical and cheap for exploiting the death of her son for political fund-raising. While pretending to be outraged by people calling her out on the brazen attempt to exploit the death of their son, her husband was willing to stoop so low to use Cheney 's daughter as a prop for his attack.

The fact that the progressive left is willing to promote this behavior can be seen as seriously wrong taboo.

So Paul... what about Bill Maher? Why is Coulter subject to this serious taboo and not him?

In fact, what she said was complaining about just that. What about those who give Maher a political platform when he wasn't joking?

Anyway, your point as I understand it is one I disagree with strongly. Serious matters should be joked about, particularly terrorism should be made fun of, the butt of any number of jokes and derisions. Nothing is proved by a somber face except your own righteousness. Plus, it's what the terrorists with their little dicks want more than anything. They want you to take them seriously, with great morose solemness and gravity. (Middle Eastern men, I'm told, I've big dicks, but that's on average. It's the little guys that go into terrorism since, as we all know, everything is about sexual inadequacy.)

Anyhow... our motto, in all seriousness, in relation to terrorism should be a variation of speaking softly and carrying a big stick. When it comes to terrorism we should wave a rubber chicken and carry a big stick.

Hit them where it hurts most. They are pathetic excuses for men and we should all watch repeated You Tube clips of that obnoxious family guy baby and Achmed the Terrorist. Laughter is the best cure for the world's ills.

Unfortunately Achmed is gone for copyright issues. Silly Jeff Durham. I understand but I wouldn't have ever heard of him but for You Tube.

You keep talking about the First Amendment and free speech as if that has anything to do with what people are saying. As far as I can see, no one has advocated the government get involved in this in any way. People express their displeasure at Coulter being given a forum, and express their opinion that the outlets providing that should not, but in no way does anyone suggest abridging her constitutional rights. ABC is not the government, and the First Amendment doesn't guarantee TV appearances. Free speech includes the right to tell other to shut up, it just doesn't allow the government to actually shut them up.

You're more of an idiot than I thought or you don't read anything. Or both. You rant about silencing Coulter. Who advocated that the government do that? Common deceny, something the shrew Coulter knows nothing about (nor you apparently) is what both mrs Edwards and I were talking about.

And I have never listened to nor read anything by Mr. Savage. A friend gave me a Savage book as a gift and I promptly took it to the used book store and traded it.

But don't let the facts get in the way of insulting someone who disagrees with you, JFO... you never have.

This is a typical cheap and phony arg used by the progressives to justify their less than honest tactic.

Since she lost a son, so she has the right to go out and use her son 's death as a fund-raising tool and attack other people? Noone else has the right to call her on it? LEt 's retire this cheap arg. The attack on Mary Cheney is the cheap one.

A few here don't seem to understand that using a FCC regulated medium such as the broadcasting airwaves to imply that harm should happen to someone like both Coulter and Maher have both done may even constitute a federal crime besides being a stupid thing to do.

The first Amendment protects a lot of objectionable things, but not threats made over public airwaves or otherwise, and provisions of the Patriot Act probably could be appplied to Coulter's or Maher's loose talk as well.

Coulter narrowly avoided a possible arrest for voter fraud last year and a felony arrest when she was under investigation. If Coulter keeps up her crazy reckless talk encouraging terrorists to strike public figures she'll be in handcuffs before very long. Coulter just doesn't seem to be intelligent enough to avoid trouble. You don't hear other political figures talk like her.
