Edwards asks conservative mouthpiece to zip it by

Elizabeth Edwards, wife of presidential hopeful Democrat John Edwards, called into MSNBC's Hardball on Tuesday to ask conservative commentator Ann Coulter to "stop the personal attacks." Coulter was a guest on the show at the time of the call.

The confrontation came a day after Coulter made a comment on Good Morning America on Monday, in which she "jokingly" 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.”

Coulter responded to Edwards request with laughter, saying that it was ridiculous for Edwards to ask her to stop talking.

"We can't have a debate about the issues if you're using that kind of language," said Edwards.

"The wife of a presidential candidate is asking me to stop speaking," Coulter said in response. "No."

I’m afraid I put Coulter in the same category as Paris Hilton. Just someone who counts for nothing besides being a marginally pretty face.
She opens her mouth and nothing worthwhile comes out. The way she manipulates quotes and positions is the worst kind of journalism. They used to call it “Yellow” journalism.
Just another way for a person to attract attention when they don’t get what they consider a sufficient amount.
Sort of like a 2 year old kicking and screaming on the living room floor when they don’t get their way.

I have to wonder personally

I have to wonder personally if Coulter believes a word of what she says because most of the civilized world would have some serious problems with their conscious to wish someone’s death via a terrorist attack. The problem with giving her any attention at all is that she will sell some more of her books filled with page upon page of hate-filled passages. If she wishes to be taken seriously, she should try debating opponent intelligently instead of baseless personal attacks.

Coulter isn't being asked to

Coulter isn’t being asked to stop speaking. She’s being asked to speak intelligently about political issues. Although, now that I think about it, maybe those are one in the same. I don’t think she has any intelligent thoughts about real issues, she’s just a sensationalistic sound bite. I don’t know why anyone would take anything she says seriously or why the news programs continue to interview her as though her opinion matters.
