Last night I read through Ann Coulter’s latest piece as my eyes bled. Instead of forcing the same agony upon all of you, I figured I would highlight a couple things that really got my attention:
It’s pretty pathetic when a Kennedy is too drunk to drive into the Potomac. After the visibly intoxicated Rep. Patrick Kennedy crashed his car into a police barrier near the Capitol just before 3 a.m. last Thursday morning, he explained to the police he was hurrying back to the Capitol for a vote, a procedure known on the Hill as “last call.” It could have been a lot worse: Patrick’s designated driver that night was Ted Kennedy.
At some point in his scrolling list of excuses, Kennedy eventually claimed he was addicted to prescription drugs and checked himself into the newly opened Kennedy Wing of the Mayo Clinic. He explained he had been “sleep driving.” If people fall for his story, his father, Ted, plans to attribute his last immigration bill to “sleep legislating.”
Coming right on the heels of a three-year witch-hunt directed at Rush Limbaugh for an addiction to prescription drugs (because of his politics) — as well as the continuing threat to put Tom DeLay in prison (because of his politics) — you would think there would be at least some serious discussion of prosecuting the young Kennedy for his addiction to prescription drugs, too.
First let’s clear something up. Coulter is suppose to be an attorney but apparently does not understand the basic principles of law. Kennedy clearly admitted he had a problem and sought help for that problem. Limbaugh denied any problems which lead into a three year
witch-hunt INVESTIGATION and resulted in him striking a deal with prosecutors. If Limbaugh was innocent then why strike this deal? Spin it anyway you want Ann but the facts are; Rush does have a problem and he was ARRESTED for that problem (if being booked, processed and released is not an arrest then apparently I was never arrested in my younger days).
Now wait, her latest spew of lies just gets better:
Democrats adored the independent counsel statute — until it was used to catch an actual felon in the Oval Office. Then they noticed all sorts of problems with the law. Democrats swore up and down that women never lie about rape — until that same felon was credibly accused of rape by Juanita Broaddrick on “NBC News,” not to mention the four other card-carrying Democratic women who described being raped by Bill Clinton in eerily similar detail in Christopher Hitchens’ book “No One Left to Lie To.”
First off Ann Coulter, esquire – when does someone writing something in a book constitute a conviction? I thought our Constitution stated a jury by the peers, not a jury by an author. Also what felonies was Clinton convicted of? Clinton was cited for civil contempt of court but last I checked that was not a felony. He also paid his fine for that. Further, the prosecutor struck a deal with the prosecutor for a five year suspension of his law license. Didn’t the same person you just sat here and made out as an “innocent victim”, Rush, also guilty of the same thing? He also struck a deal with a prosecutor. So Ann – why it Clinton a felon for this and Limbaugh a victim?
Now it gets really interesting:
Conservatives will continue to be threatened with prison on trumped-up charges until Democrats start having to worry about being prosecuted for minor offenses, too — though, in Kennedy’s case, not as minor as Rush Limbaugh’s offense, which never involved smashing his car into a police barrier. (In Rep. Kennedy’s defense, at least he didn’t drown the woman in his car and then disappear for nine hours.)
Democrats have declared war against Republicans, and Republicans are wandering around like a bunch of ninny Neville Chamberlains, congratulating themselves on their excellent behavior. They’ll have some terrific stories about their Gandhi-like passivity to share while sitting in cells at Guantanamo after Hillary is elected.
What could she mean by this, except for just pure lying and playing the victim card? Well the answer could lie with BradBlog’s great work:
Coulter, who appears to have committed a third-degree felony by knowingly giving an incorrect address on her voter registration form in Palm Beach, Florida, and then knowingly voting at the incorrect polling place last March, could face up to $5,000 in fines and five years in prison if convicted.
In April, The BRAD BLOG posted Coulter’s fraudulent Voter Registration form in full. Today, we have more official and exclusive documents from the incident.
HMM. So could Ann be working on her defense of being a victim of the “Democrats war against Republicans”. Sure sounds like it and this little bit could prove this to be the absolute case:
But “retarded news” site, The BRAD BLOG linked to several documents which indicate, in no uncertain terms, that Coulter purchased a $1.8 million dollar crib in Palm Beach in March of 2005. If that is not her residence, Coulter would still be guilty of an apparent voter fraud felony, since she did register to vote in Palm Beach…even if at the wrong address.
As well, Coulter has received a $25,000 homestead tax exemption, which, according to Palm Beach law, would only be available to use as a tax deduction on the property if she “lives there permanently”.
So now Ann may also be facing tax fraud as well as her voting irregularities. This would mean that Ann’s new piece is in a way her writing her own defense. It is also a defense I hope she sticks to because it will most certainly guarantee a guilty conviction.
Ann Coulter is one of the worst kinds of neo-cons. She goes around expecting the law to be twisted around her own beliefs but in this country it does not work that way. She is nothing but a fraud and a liar and if he does end up serving time for what she has done then I will certainly be celebrating.
