The Return of the Jersey Girls

Everytime I begin to think they are but a distant memory, the Jersey Girls are in the news again. This time as a result of the release of Ann Coulter’s new book Godless. Michelle Malkin has a good rundown of the controversy Coulter has created with her comments about the 9/11 widows. Michelle also reminds us that Ann Coulter wasn’t the first to take them on either, linking to what she correctly refers to as Dorothy Rabinowitz’ “definitive piece”. I remember the Rabinowitz piece well. If you haven’t read it, read it now. If you have read it, like me, you will likely want to re-read it.

I can’t say that I agree with all of Coulter’s comments. In fact, I agree with Captain Ed, especially about Coulter’s comment, “I have never seen people enjoying their husband’s death so much.” Ann Coulter was right, though, about the way the MSM treats people like the Jersey Girls and Cindy Sheehan. The same “moral authority” declared for Cindy Sheehan and the Jersey Girls is not extended to all victims, though. Just ask Debra Burlingame. Ann Coulter raises a good point about the way those on the Left use victims to attack the President, and then claim them to be beyond reproach due to their victim status. I just wish she chosen her words more carefully.
