Normal Conversation vs. Ann Coulter 27 June, 2007

The always-engaging Feministing posted a wonderful video of Ann Coulter getting her ass handed to her.

On this episode of Hardball, Chris takes a very special phone call from then-presidential candidate John Edward’s wife, Elizabeth. Frankly, I don’t know much about Ms. Edwards, but after watching this clip, I think I might just be in love.

Video goodness after the jump!

Elizabeth is so endearing in this, isn’t she? So rational. So nice. Even after Ann repeatedly interrupts her, speaks over her, and basically behaves like a spoiled child, Elizabeth remains civil.

Why can’t everybody else on those stupid “debate” shows do that? Mrs. Edwards is really asking a very simple thing of Ann Coulter. Pretty much it can be summed up thusly:

“Hey, Lady! Quit making jokes about my dead son, my living husband, and anybody else that you want to make fun of to get attention. It’s a bad example for young people!”

I wholeheartedly agree. Frankly, the reason that I was so reluctant to be involved in politics is because it’s become so filled with the kind of irrelevant, hateful garbage that Ann and others spew forth on a daily basis, rather than a mature discussion about the issues at hand.

Bravo, Elizabeth!
