Just for the Halibut

Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC’s Slimeball Spitball Hardball, gave right-wing harridan, Ann Coulter, the entire hour to spew her venomous hate speech. Here’s a short synopsis from Media Matters:

Summary: Chris Matthews asked pundit Ann Coulter, “How do you know that Bill Clinton is gay?” — referring to her comment the night before on CNBC’s The Big Idea that Clinton “show[s] some level of latent homosexuality.” Coulter responded, “I don’t know if he’s gay. But Al Gore — total fag.” In concluding the interview, Matthews said of Coulter, “We’d love to have her back.”

Original DVD cover.

That was the most gracious part of her performance. I won’t repeat the rest of her drivel.
Coulter’s appearance was on Wednesday. On Thursday, Tweety Matthews asked presidential hopeful, John Edwards, whose wife Elizabeth confronted Coulter the day before on the show, wrung his hanky and wondered why Coulter would say the things that she did. Allow me to take a stab at explaining it to him.
(Clearing my throat politely…) Chris, you spitting, slobbering sack of shit! Why does she say that stuff? Ever think that maybe it’s because imbeciles like you give her air time and attention? All she wants to be is relevant. If you and the other bloviating, sputtering shills who dare to call themselves journalists stop catering to bottom-feeders like this anorexic waste of oxygen, then maybe she will go away!!!!!
There, I feel better now.

    It sickens me that there are enough hateful people around to support Coulter. If she didn’t have a following, she would have no air time. Her spew serves to reinforce the willfull ignorance of, what would need to be, a rather large group of mean spirited folks.

    i admit that i did not watch the show. i read parts of the transcripts and accounts of the show, and i saw snippets of the interview. i finally bit the bullet and went over to msnbc and watched the first part of it. what i saw was that there was a pitifully small crowd, and some among them were there simply to show their pro-obama and pro-dodd signs. they were not there to support the shrew. i was watching the expressions on the people in the “crowd”, and it seemed to me that the only one the shrew was impressing was herself. i don’t think that she has a large following. she gets air time only because the media feeds off itself. tweety knows that if he has her as a guest, then other “news” shows will be playing snippets of it for the next week. radio talk show hosts will parse every word of what was said. coulter is used merely as bait. i would venture to bet that most of the people who were tempted to watch that show were those who cannot stand her. she is the paris hilton of the political world. she is not smart, she is not funny. she never answers a question directly. she changes the subject so she can spew out something that she thought up while sitting on the toilet in the morning. she should be banished to that which she would hate the most–obscurity. that is exactly where she deserves to be.
