Elizabeth Edwards Confronts Ann Coulter

Elizabeth Edwards called into "Hardball" today and called Ann Coulter out. Part of the conversation revolved around Coulter's slander of Edwards on ABC, which the campaign is utilizing to pump up the volume on their campaign cash, as the second quarter fundraising comes to a close.

It was clear she was stunned by the call when Matthews announced who was on the line. But as Edwards laid out her case, Coulter immediately started flipping her hair and stuttering. The point was that the personal, negative attacks by Coulter are hurting politics and aren't good for this country.

Elizabeth Edwards made the right-wing slander merchant squirm.

But ABC joined in yesterday, helping Ann Coulter sell her paperback book, as she slimed Edwards during her performance, which is part of what inspired Elizabeth Edwards to call in.

That's nothing. Did you see what happened on "Hannity & Colmes" last night? Coulter equated Obama to being a terrorist.

That's Fox "News," MSNBC and "Hardball," plus ABC all helping Coulter sell books, while she slimes Democratic candidates for president. You can't pay for media coverage like that. But spreading hate speech at the same time? That's the Coulter smear machine in action.

That's some "liberal media" we've got, isn't it, folks?

Oh, and when was the last time a liberal author got such coverage across the networks? They sure aren't handed the whole hour on "Hardball."
