The Return of Coultergeist

It's been some time since last we heard from Ann Coulter and it would appear that the she-demon succubus decided she needed another dose of the life force of fawning media attention that is her sustenance. But I would have to say she is getting even more crazed in her attempts to foment adulation from the crazed sect of her conservative audience.

During a segment on Good Morning America, Coulter once again sank her fanged maw into John Edwards. Only this time she didn't remark about his haircut or malign his sexual orientation. No, this time she openly called for his assassination. Watch.

It really does boggle the mind that news orgs continue to host this vile shell of what was once a human being as if she were some sort of serious political analyst. Even Chris Matthews' lament that "she sells books" is no excuse.

And the Coulter pun-idiot wasn't done yet. On the always welcoming Hannity & Colmes, Coulter called out Barack Obama saying that "I do think someone named B. Hussein Obama should avoid using hijack and religion in the same sentence."

But it would appear that Coulter hadn't counted on someone talking back who wasn't as sycophantic as the likes of Matthews and Hannity. Elizabeth Edwards called in to Hardball to read Ms. Ann the riot act.
These young people behind you…you’re asking them to participate in a dialogue that is based on hatefulness and ugliness instead of on the issues, and I don’t think that’s serving them or this country very well.

That line elicited cheers from the crowd, something I'm sure didn't sit well with Ann. Neither, one would assume, is the less than stellar books sales of her last screed against all things liberal. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that the younger generation appears to be wising up and no longer taking her words as gospel. Seems the exorcism may be working.

More ghost hunting at Meme.

Update: David Goldstein indirectly reminded me that last February righties were going apeshit because anonymous commenters on lefty blogs expressed disappointment that Dick Cheney hadn't been killed in an attack in Afghanistan. But Ms. Ann wishing a similar fate on a Democratic presidential candidate? Crickets...

Blog Thanks: The SotD of this post got picked up in the Wednesday blog round up at Real Clear Politics. Does this officially mean I'm part of the nutroots?
