Edwards' wife goes on Hardball and attacks Coulter about her rhetoric and Edwards' posts an example of it at YouTube:
That's quote sounds bad, doesn't it? Well, here it is in context:
But about the same time, you know, Bill Maher was not joking and saying he wished Dick Cheney had been killed in a terrorist attack. So I've learned my lesson. If I'm gonna say anything about John Edwards in the future, I'll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot.It's obviously a joke but you wouldn't get that from Edwards' editing of the video (see for yourself here).
But the sliminess doesn't end there, he sent out an email playing the victim:
Dear Friend,And he's using his wife's appearance on Hardball to solicit campaign contributions. Pretty slimy, don't you think?
Yesterday, Jonathan told you that the folks who benefit from the status quo are attacking John personally because they don’t want the country to hear his message.
And you know what happened when we called them out? The attacks started pouring in.
That same day, the Ann Coulter-wannabe Michelle Malkin blasted John on her blog. Fox News has been bashing him around the clock. And Coulter herself said, “if I’m going to say anything about John Edwards in the future, I’ll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot.”
