I do have qualms with some of the fund-raising through 501(c)4's, and use of said funds by the Edwards presidential campaign.
But Ann Coulter had taken it to the nonsensical level, personal attacks such as implying that John Edwards is gay, and that the Edwards couple uses their son's death to raise funds. And don't forget when she said that when she would talk about John Edwards in the future, she'd wish he'd been in a terrorist assassination plot.
Then Elizabeth Edwards took her to task, politely asking her to stop...
Coulter initially denies ever making a personal attack. What?
And then Coulter doesn't distinguish between the sort of attack she made and the sort of criticisms that I have, other policy criticisms.
"She's asking me to stop writing..." says Coulter. What? That wasn't the case.
Of course, it should come as little surprise that she puts things in a black and white paradigm, and that Coulter uses criticism of her actions to go off on some tangent, which has nothing to do with the discussion.
ARGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!! COMPLETE NONSENSE
We should all be aware of the amount of vitriol that we send to partisan opponents.
On the left, Al Franken and Michael Moore are prone to hark on President Bush's problem with alcoholism, or the hijinks of his daughters.
There's enough real criticism of Bush's foreign policy, attacks on civil liberties, No Child Left Behind, cronyism...
