Rudy & Rudey

With regard to the 9/11 celebration commemoration about which Blogenfreude posted below, Greg Sargent makes a good point about GOP presidential contender Rudy Giuliani and Ann Coulter being on the same bill:

Rudy Giuliani may be running for President on his 9/11 performance, but that hasn't stopped him from planning to spend part of the sixth anniversary of the attacks with a high-profile pundit who's repeatedly bashed the 9/11 widows, calling them "self-obsessed" and accusing them of "enjoying their husband's deaths."
Sargent then goes on to recount some of Coulter's greatest hits, like:

"These self-obsessed women seemed genuinely unaware that 9/11 was an attack on our nation and acted as if the terrorist attacks happened only to them."


"These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzis. I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much."

I guess Giuliani doesn't mind being associated with those comments. Not remotely surprising, but good to have confirmed.
