Class Act Versus Trash

Class Act - 1
Trash - 0

I hadn't planned to write anything about Elizabeth Edward's phone call to Chris Matthews on MSNBC. I dislike giving "She who shall not be named" any more space than she already has.

However, a local friend sent me this column by Tim King of the Salem (OR) News. From his writing, he appears to be somewhere between moderate to somewhat conservative (note the Jane Fonda remark). However, for the most part he nailed it.

Here's a brief excerpt from his column:

"And that illustrates the most important thing that we all should feel obligated to remember; that this it is not about right and left folks, it is about right and wrong. It's also about the increasingly unethical behavior of media bullies who distance themselves farther from the truth, or any concern for Americans, with each passing day."
She crosses the line every time she opens her mouth. There is no justification for sneering at the loss of a child or wishing for assassination. The woman is vile.

When the breakdown of moral standards begins in the highest office in the land, it demonstrates the worst of the "trickle-down" theories. The lowest standards do not trickle, they pour down through society in general, perpetrated via the media and hollywood and business. Tolerance of she-who-shall-not-be-named displays the way society is becoming hardened to such evil behavior. (And it IS evil to be so cruel and vicious to others!)

All of what you said is true. I find it equally disgusting that Chris Mathews had a known trash mouth on his show. Why did he? Ratings! CNN received a blistering letter from me.

Of all the people in the world and in the country, why this person? Aren't there Nobel prize winners and INTELLIGENT people out there with something to say? That she even gets a spot on TV is just pathetic. Also, I think Tina at Fuzzy and Blue is right: she's really a man.

What disturbs me more even than her being invited onto the talk shows is the rabble that thinks she's the second coming.

if anything was abundantly clear, it was that she has no value at all to anything. she adds nothing to discourse or debate- she is a scorched earth flame thrower. edwards was polite and had facts. bitchtits looked like a warmed over crack whore who could do nothing but throw more insults. why people keep treating her as valid- i know not.

I'm always struck by how ridiculous Coulter acts when directly confronted by anyone who "dares" to call her out on her vile spew. It is obvious Ann can dish it out but simply can't take it.
If I had been Elizabeth Edwards, I could not have been so classy. I know myself. I would have wanted to cut her so deeply to the bone with my words that she wouldn't have been able to flip around that greasy blond hair of her's nor nervously giggle. I would have went for the jugular and asked Ann something like this: "You make light of my son's death, Ann? Why is that? Is it because at your age, are you jealous that no man has been brave enough to risk sticking it in and breeding with you? Or are you childless because your womb is a festering cesspool of infertility? Or maybe, just maybe, the real problem is that dick of your's. Ya know, the one that you duct tape to your leg? It just always seems to get in the way, huh?"
She dared to attack Elizabeth's kid... and a DEAD child at that??? Oh no.... there is simply no way I could have been as cool headed and classy as Elizabeth. Kudos to Mrs Edwards, and as her husband said on Hardball, he is proud of his wife. So am I.

Tina, it's so good to see you over here. It's been a while.

I read your post on the same subject, probably before I wrote mine.
