Has Ann Coulter hit her tipping point?

Last week, we pointed out the hypocrisy with regard to how Ann Coulter was treated as opposed to Bill Maher. You can read that piece here. It’s appears, after a week, that CBS big wig Steve Freidman agrees with us. Albeit in an Uber-liberal qualified way.

Has Ann Coulter hit her tipping point? – Yahoo! News

NEW YORK – Ann Coulter has been a reliable name for years among people who plan television news shows — an attractive, articulate blonde conservative who’s made a living lobbing verbal bombs.

Following her use of a gay slur about Democratic presidential candidate

John Edwards

this month during remarks to the Conservative Political Action Conference, some on TV are wondering whether her shelf life is expiring.

Many were angered by her use of the “f-word”. Coulter later said she considered it a “schoolyard taunt.” She said it was a joke about “Grey’s Anatomy” actor Isaiah Washington saying he would seek counseling after using the word to refer to a fellow actor.

At least four daily newspapers have dropped Coulter as a columnist, citing her comment about Edwards.

Head-turning remarks are hardly anything new for the author of “Godless: The Church of Liberalism” and “How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must).” In “Godless” last year, she wrote of World Trade Center widows: “I’ve never seen people enjoying their husbands’ deaths so much.”

“It’s a world of `are you talking about me? are you talking about me?'” said Steve Friedman, executive producer of “The Early Show” on CBS. “And eventually you have to get more and more outrageous to be talked about. One day you cross the line and become persona non grata. I think she’s getting close. I think Bill Maher is getting close.”

Liberal Lunacy on display: Ann Coulter vs. Bill Maher

John Hawkins @ Right Wing News is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. He found this little nugget at TheDailyKos. His analysis is right on point.

Excerpt Of The Day: Another Kossack Diarist Goes Off The Rails – Right Wing News (Conservative News and Views)

“If the Democrats fail (to end the war), the only option left is revolution and foreign intervention. Tyranny is but assured because Congress cannot and will not exercise it’s Constitutional power to end this fascist Coup d’etat.This is outrageous! The only two options available to Congress, Impeachment and cutting the funds, are now both off the table. What now Democrats? What other magic powers will you invoke? You have taken the only constitutional means you have available to end this fascist train off the table.

“We don’t have the votes to do it,”

You don’t have the votes to do it because every Democrat is silent on the WAR CRIMINALS that have infested this country. And furthermore, “So what?” Put it up for a vote. Then do it again and again and again. Twenty six times if you have to just like the Arctic Wildlife National Refuge oil drilling agenda.

What up Speaker Pelosi? Are you to be known as the first woman Speaker and last Speaker of the semi-free republic in America? The avarice, the complicity, the cowardice, infidelity, disloyalty, and dishonor on display is a discredit and a disgrace to all Americans and True Patriots.

It is truly nauseating to think that, as this nation sinks down into tyranny and breathes its last gasps of democracy, the democrats have, of their own free choosing, removed from themselves the only two viable options at gaining back liberty.

This is not oversight. This is complicity in war crimes.”wolverine 06

<HouseofChin HINT: The link to this diarist works…if ya know what I’m sayin’ :-)>

A writer for the world’s most popular liberal blog is calling for, “revolution and foreign intervention,” in the United States and you know what? Other than at RWN, it probably won’t even be covered.

You know why that’s the case? Because the left in this country has become so profane, insane, and extreme that the sort of comments that would have caused liberals to be shunned as out of the mainstream kooks a decade ago are regular fodder at popular liberal websites.

That’s the primary “accomplishment” of liberal websites like Kos, Firedoglake, Unclaimed Territory, and the Democratic Underground: mainstreaming sheer insanity on the left.

All the hullabaloo this weekend revolved around Ann Coulter’s comments. Yet nary a word was breathed as Bill Maher offered that it may have been good if Dick Cheney had been killed….

Here is a bit of the transcript…

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.

I guess it’s more moral relativism from the left. Wish for the death of a sitting Vice President and advocate the overthrow of the government? No problem.

Use the word faggot? They’ll tar and feather you.

Vote in our latest poll: Whose comments were worse? Coulter or Maher.
