Ann Coulter Calls For Meghan McCain To Be Killed. Yes, Really.
Remiss as I am to give Ann Coulter any attention, this is just obscene: the Fox News commenter wrote a blog post in which she suggested Meghan McCain, daughter of Sen. John McCain and a Republican commentator, should be killed.
Coulter blogged on Fox about MSNBC host Martin Bashir, mis-stating (as NYMag.com explains) that he had suggested Republican senators wouldn’t support gun control unless they had members of their families killed:
“MSNBC’s Martin Bashir suggested that Republican senators need to have a member of their families killed for them to support the Democrats’ gun proposals. (Let’s start with Meghan McCain!)”
Yup, she just suggested that John McCain’s daughter should be murdered. Really, Ann Coulter?
Meghan McCain responded over Twitter more tastefully than Coulter deserved:
Meghan McCain has long been a punching bag of the right-wing, Fox News set: everyone from Glenn Beck to Bristol Palin (roll eyes) have attacked her over non-political issues, like her body. It figures Ann Coulter would pile on regarding something irrelevant as well. I mean, this is the same woman who called the president of the United States a “retard.”
