Duncan Hunter Lubs Ann Coulter

I meant to post this the other day and then forgot… This is video of GOP presidential candidate Duncan Hunter defending Ann Coulter against meanie Elizabeth Edwards and saying that Coulter “is a very articulate spokeswoman for the conservative view” and is “closely approaching that level of being a great American.” Charming fella.

Think Progress has the transcript.

    And to me, Representative Hunter is closely approaching that level of…

    Oh, sorry.

    Did he really just say it was okay to make, uh, heartless remarks to the mother of a dead soldier, because Edwards mentioned that Mary Cheney is a lesbian?

    …because, you know, having a homosexual child is a lot like having a dead child….

    Yep. Glad to know where we stand in your mind, Rep.

    “…very articulate spokeswoman for the conservative (batshit crazy?)view ..”

    Ugh.

    I wish this guy would crawl back under his San Diego rock. I’ll be glad when his 15 minutes of candidac are over, and hey, with remarks like this…

    OTOH, I hope the in-laws don’t catch wind of this b/c it may spark an interest in this guy.

    Ugh.

  4. “closely approaching that level of being a great American”

    WTF does that mean?

    So the conservative view is that dead children are fair game, but don’t mention Cheney’s hypocritical view on homosexuality? The conservative view is that homophobia is widely acceptable fodder for public speaking events? The conservative view is that rich people are un-electable (unless of course they are rich conservatives)?

    I am going to vomit.

    Jim you seem to have this love/hate thing going with women who express themselves.

    So how’s things going for you at the Bates Motel?

  10. Ya know, I’ve always thought Hunter was a tool, and this is further proof. No shame.

  11. I am sick sick sick nigh unto motherfucking death with the “O how terrible of you to mention that Cheney’s daughter is a lesbian in a public setting!” bullmeme. There isn’t time in the day to explain fully how wrong this is. Mary Cheney is out professionally (in her job in marketing for Coors).

    How in the world is it homophobic to point out the hypocrisy endemic to the Republican party when it comes to gay rights? When the page program scandal was underway, it seemed like half the senior Republican legislative staffers were gay, and open about it. Naturally, Rep. Smith doesn’t mention that his chief of staff is queer as a three dollar bill when he’s at home railing against gay marriage.

    But noooooo. I’m the one who’s homophobic somehow for bringing the subject up. If I try to make it make sense, I think my mind will snap like a brittle twig. So I’ll stop now.

    If I was a right winger I might suspect the Coulter was a secret agent for the liberals out to portray conservatives as raving lunatics.

  13. Hunter just put the last few nails in the coffin of his presidential campaign. His opponents now will have ammunition to use against him for the rest of his life.
