    Coulter: The killing of politicians’ children should ‘start with Meghan McCain’

    In a column published on Thursday, conservative pundit Ann Coulter joked that the killing of politicians’ children should “start with Meghan McCain.”
    Earlier this week, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MA) told MSNBC host Martin Bashir that he was sensitive to the need for more gun control because his nephew had been shot and killed several years ago.

    Bashir suggested that members of Congress should not have to experience the death of a family member to understand that gun violence was a problem.

    And on Thursday, Coulter decided it would be funny to suggest the daughter of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) should be the first to die.
    “MSNBC’s Martin Bashir suggested that Republican senators need to have a member of their families killed for them to support the Democrats’ gun proposals,” Coulter wrote. “Let’s start with Meghan McCain!”

    It seems that Coulter went off the deep in, oh wait, that happened a long time ago.

    Ummm... I'm no big fan of Ann Coulter but shouldn't this thread be equally devoted to bashing Martin Bashir?

    I think both Coulter's and Bashir's comments are disgusting.

    It amazes me still that people think gun-free zones save lives when the opposite is true.

    No, because that's not at all what Martin Bashir said.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    No, you find Coulter's comment disgusting. Clearly you read her characterization of Bashir's comments rather than his actual comments.

    Yes, it was horrible for Bashir to suggest that the family members of republicans not be shot!!

    I think she should be fired.

    Holy **** way to interpret things out of context people. Read what he actually said instead of what Coulter said that he said.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    This is the actual exchange...
    Rep. Cummings’ nephew, Christopher Cummings, was shot and killed, and his roommate critically injured, on June 10, 2011, at his off-campus apartment near Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. His murder has not been solved.

    “But Congressman,” Bashir said, “is that what needs to happen to move these senators to stop threatening a filibuster? Is that really what needs to happen? That you need to have a member of your family killed in order for you to do what the American people want you to do?”

    “I hope not,” Rep. Cummings replied. “I don’t wish this pain on anybody.”

    “None of us does,” Martin exclaimed.
    Not exactly what Coulter made it out to be but using a tragedy to push an agenda, none the less.
