Ann Coulter has deflated another MSM/DNC propaganda balloon, and the leftists are squealing like stuck pigs. In Ann's new book, Ann writes the following about four of the widows from 9-11 who have allowed their names to be used in a relentless campaign against George W. Bush and for the Democrats:
These self-obsessed women seem genuinely unaware that 9-11 was an attack on our nation and acted like as if the terrorist attack only happened to them. They believe the entire country was required to marinate in their exquisite personal agony. Apparently, denouncing Bush was part of the closure process.
These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by griefparrazies. I have never seen people enjoying their husband’s death so much.
As Dorothy Rabinowitz wrote more than two years ago, "Americans are beginning to tire of them." Ms. Rabinowitz also wrote the following:
From August 1940 to May 1941, the Luftwaffe's nightly terror bombings killed 43,000 British men, women and children. That was only phase one. Phase two, involving the V-1 flying bombs and, later, rockets, killed an additional 6,180. The British defense, was, to the say the least, ineffectual, particularly in the early stages of the war--the antiaircraft guns were few, the fire control system inadequate, as was the radar system. Still, it would have been impossible, then as now, to imagine victims of those nightly assaults rising up to declare war on their government, charging its leaders, say, with failure to develop effective radar--the British government had, after all, had plenty of warning that war was coming. It occurred to no one, including families who had lost husbands, wives and children, to claim that tens of thousands had been murdered on Winston Churchill's watch. They understood that their war was with the enemies bombing them.Read the whole thing.
Ann has now accomplished what the rest of us could not do with our respectful debate and measured attempts to refute the shrill attacks that were made in the names of these women. She has dragged them into the center of the fray, so that they could not continue to snipe from the cover of their status as "9/11 widows." From now on, the MSM/DNC will have a harder time introducing any of these women on their morning programs as "a victim of the 9-11 attacks who takes issue with the President's position on [Iran, Iraq, tax cuts, gun control, fill in the blank. . .]"
I applaud not only Ann's criticism of the women, but the tone of Ann's counterattack. They have spent years spewing mud from a safe position and are now getting it back. Blood is in the water. Other conservatives need no longer give these ladies a free pass. They are as partisan as Hillary Clinton, Cindy Sheehan or John Kerry and can be identified as such.
Any conservative who shrinks from attacking these ladies makes a tactical mistake and provides them with more respect than they deserve. The Captain wrote in a comment on his blog that Ann should ". . . criticize their policies instead of using insults and personal attacks. . . " This comment highlights the point of the 4 widows. They have no policies. Their usefulness to the MSM/DNC lies in their guerilla attacks, not in proposals or policies. Demanding a "commission" that would whitewash the causes of 9-11 and serve as a tool for partisan sniping is not a policy, it is a tactic.
H/T to Atlas for rallying to support Ann.

Being nice to those whose only goal is to foment Bush Derangement Syndrome will never pay off. We will never receive any credit for such refinement.
But those of us who are not blessed with Ann's mass appeal need not do the heavy lifting required to uncover the various MSM/DNC voices. We can, instead, sit back and enjoy the fruits of Ann's labor, as we watch the MSM/DNC search for new frontpeople to give voice to its tactics in its endless War on the War on Terror.
