Jeff Jacoby, You Forgot A Few Quotes...

Jeff Jacoby's latest column appears to be chastising Ann Coulter for her offensive remark about Presidential candidate John Edwards and gay people. However about half way down you see that it's really about the "liberal media" and how a comment by Bill Maher about V.P. Dick Cheney went unnoticed.

Why do I say that? Well, he only attributes one nasty comment to Coulter yet he provides a list of things Maher has said in the past. The fact that Maher said these things on his own show on a cable network that you have to subscribe to doesn't matter (or the fact that other Democrats on the HBO show also chastised Maher when he made the remark).

I guess the fact that Ann Coulter called John Edwards a faggot right after she was introduced by Mitt Romney isn't supposed to be important either since Jacoby didn't feel he needed to mention it (BTW, in his introduction, Mitt called Coulter a "moderate") Or that all the Republican presidential candidates with the exception of McCain was there at the conference that Coulter spoke at wasn't important either.

The kicker is this line from Jacoby's post:
If there is another, it is an end to the double standard that loudly condemns hate speech when it comes from the right, while barely noticing when it spews from the left.

Oh really Jeff, well, you forgot these quotes by the "best selling" author Coulter:
"We need somebody to put rat poisoning in Justice Stevens' creme brulee," Coulter said at Philander Smith College in Little Rock, Ark. "That's just a joke, for you in the media."

My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building.

Talking about the 9/11 widows:

"These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzis," Coulter writes.

"And by the way, how do we know their husbands weren't planning to divorce these harpies? Now that their shelf life is dwindling, they'd better hurry up and appear in Playboy. . .

"These self-obsessed women seemed genuinely unaware that 9/11 was an attack on our nation and acted as if the terrorist attacks happened only to them."

Oh, yeah, Ann Coulter endorsed Mitt Romney too.

I was watching the Maher show and Maher never made the comment. He was quoting someone who had already made the comment and had gotten in trouble for it. He was sort of laughing about it when one of the guests sort of frowned over the whole thing. It was not a direct comment.
