I Don’t Say This Often

But good for Roemer and Emmanuel:

Former Rep. Tim Roemer, D-Ind., a member of the commission that investigated the Sept. 11 attacks, called Coulter’s “hate-filled attack on the patriotic heroes of 9/12 — the widows of 9/11 — reprehensible and undignified.”

Roemer urged people not to buy her book. “Americans shouldn’t contribute to her profiting from these vicious remarks.”

Rep. Rahm Emmanuel, D-Ill., said Thursday on the House floor that Coulter is a “hatemonger” and called on Republicans to denounce her: “I must ask my colleagues on the other side of the aisle: Does Ann Coulter speak for you when she suggests poisoning not Supreme Court Justices or slanders the 9/11 … widows? If not, speak now. Your silence allows her to be your spokesman.”

I know a lot of people say we should ignore her so she’ll go away, but the sad fact is, we shouldn’t because she won’t. Ignoring a bully doesn’t make him going away. Punching him back does.
