Yesterday Hillary blasted Ann Coulter for daring to make a critical examination of some of her constituents. In Coulter’s new book, "Godless: The Church of Liberalism," she writes that the "Jersey Girls," a group of New Jersey widows whose husbands were killed in the World Trade Center, use their grief to score political points ("I’ve never seen people enjoying their husbands’ deaths so much," wrote Coulter).
"Perhaps her book should have been called ‘Heartless,’" Hillary complained. "I know a lot of the widows and family members who lost loved ones on 9/11. They never wanted to be a member of a group that is defined by the tragedy of what happened." Sen. Clinton also said she found it "unimaginable that anyone in the public eye could launch a vicious, mean-spirited attack on people whom I’ve known over the last four and a half years to be concerned deeply about the safety and security of our country."
Coulter responded later on Sean Hannity’s radio show, where she noted the irony of Mrs. Clinton’s remarks. "I think if she’s worried about people being mean to women she should have a talk with her husband." Of course, Hillary’s better half has a long and storied history of being not-so-nice to the women he desires. Coulter also pointed out that Hillary "may know the 9/11 widows, but [we] know Juanita Broaddrick." Broaddrick is the woman who quite credibly accused Bill of raping her in 1978. And if that wasn’t bad enough, Broaddrick recounted how Mrs. Clinton tried to silence her in the aftermath of the sexual assault, and that was pretty "heartless."
