ABC HELPS COULTER PROMOTE GODLESS PAPERBACK
Four months after referring to Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards as a "faggot," controversial conservative author Ann Coulter appeared as a guest on the popular Good Morning America show Monday morning on ABC.
Good Morning America News Anchor Christoper Cuomo, a former political policy analyst for Fox News Channel, interrupted, "You said you were joking."
While Coulter appears to have been obstensibly booked to talk about an "identity crisis of sorts" in the Republican Party, ABC publicized the interview to coincide with the paperback release of her last book. At its website, ABC links to the seven-minute video interview (and accompanying article) with the caption "'Godless:' Ann Coulter Unplugged Conservative firebrand's book out in paperback."
"I wouldn't insult gays by comparing them to John Edwards," Coulter continued, "that would be mean. But about the same time, Bill Maher was not joking when he said he wished Dick Cheney had been killed in a terrorist attack."
Coulter then added, "So I've learned my lesson, if I'm gonna say anything about John Edwards in the future, I'll just wish he'd been killed in a terrorist assassination plot," but Cuomo had no reaction to Coulter's latest "threat."
