9/11 Widows Respond to GOP Piece of Human Garbage Coulter

The fact that right wing Republican scum Ann Coulter continues to be given a microphone into which she can vomit her filth and slander speaks ill of our political process. On the Today show yesterday, this example of walking excrement viciously attacked the 9/11 widows, saying they were "enjoying" their husbands' deaths and implying that these "harpies" (her word) were probably going to be divorced by their husbands before the latter were killed. Today, in a powerful and dignified statement, a group of 9/11 widows responded:
We did not choose to become widowed on September 11, 2001. The attack, which tore our families apart and destroyed our former lives, caused us to ask some serious questions regarding the systems that our country has in place to protect its citizens. Through our constant research, we came to learn how the protocols were supposed to have worked. Thus, we asked for an independent commission to investigate the loopholes which obviously existed and allowed us to be so utterly vulnerable to terrorists. Our only motivation ever was to make our Nation safer. Could we learn from this tragedy so that it would not be repeated? We are forced to respond to Ms. Coulter’s accusations to set the record straight because we have been slandered.
Contrary to Ms. Coulter’s statements, there was no joy in watching men that we loved burn alive. There was no happiness in telling our children that their fathers were never coming home again. We adored these men and miss them every day.It is in their honor and memory, that we will once again refocus the Nation’s attention to the real issues at hand: our lack of security, leadership and progress in the five years since 9/11.
G-d damned right! As I've said many times, I'll say again: in any decent society Ann Coulter would be in an asylum for the criminally insane instead of on national television. However, she does serve one important function: she continues to show the American people what the genuine essence of the Republican Party is.

Ann Coulter IS the Republican Party.
