Why She’s The Most Insane Liberal of the Week: for continuing to allow her husband to use her as a pawn in his Presidential aspirations.
A week after working hand-in-hand with Chris Matthews to backstab conservative pundit Ann Coulter on Matthews’ low-rated “Hardball” show, Mrs. Edwards continued her verbal attacks on Coulter this past week. Interviewed Thursday on the CBS’ “Early Show,” Mrs. Edwards said that it didn’t used to be all right for people to “call names, to say these hateful kind of things.” Edwards said as a parent, she doesn’t think it should be allowed to happen now.
Yet, Mrs. Edwards seems to conveniently forget that it was she who played a key role in hiring two anti-Catholic bigots to help run her husband’s campaign not too long ago. Granted, the bigots would later resign, but that was only after conservative groups expressed outrage at the hirings in the press. Then too, just as her husband tried to garner sympathy votes by using her announcement that her cancer had returned recently for campaign funds, Mrs. Edwards made it clear that she has no problem with her husband using Coulter’s comments as a fund-raising tool, saying that “it’s showing what they’re asking voters to reject.” Either this woman is completely incompetent or just as shady as her husband. Or maybe she’s just a Stepford wife quietly begging to be rescued from her Svengali. Who knows. But one thing’s for sure: the two losers certainly deserve each other.
