The company you keep

Posted By on Fri, Sep 22, 2006 at 8:12 AM

The lefty blogs are beating the drums today about the "family values" summit up in D.C., where some of the leading purveyors of bigotry are gathering to cheer the likes of Ann Coulter and national political wannabes like The Huckster. Says this one:

I want the media to make Governor Mitt Romney, Sens. George Allen, Sam Brownback, Governor Mike Huckabee, Reps. Mike Pence and Marilyn Musgrave finally admit that the rantings of a lunatic are at the heart of the core values they embrace. Ann Coulter repeatedly calls Democrats traitors, terrorist lovers and everything else under the sun while she cheerfully opined that the 9/11 widows were very happy that their husbands were killed in the Twin Towers. No more can they claim anything otherwise since she’s scheduled at this event. With Tony Snow signing up we can also chalk up the White House as another supporter of Coulter’s vicious and insipid rantings.

Our view. Coulter is abominable, but mostly a cartoon character. Far more dangerous are the sponsors of this event -- Dobson, Wildmon, etc. That's the association that should really trouble voters considering the politicians who pander to them.
