Dems outraged by Coulter, not Kos kooks

Dems are demanding that Republicans publicly denounce Ann Coulter for her comments on the Jersey Girls profiteering (and enjoying the limelight resulting) from their husbands' deaths. From Breitbart/AP:
Rep. Rahm Emmanuel, D-Ill., said Thursday on the House floor that Coulter is a "hatemonger" and called on Republicans to denounce her: "I must ask my colleagues on the other side of the aisle: Does Ann Coulter speak for you when she suggests poisoning not Supreme Court Justices or slanders the 9/11 ... widows? If not, speak now. Your silence allows her to be your spokesman."
Such demands don't seem so unreasonable, and I would be likely to take them seriously...if not for the failure of the Democrats to denounce the Kos kooks for their moonbattery. No, the Dems not only refuse to denounce the Kos kreeps, they actually join them at their convention. From Michelle Malkin:
This morning, Gen. Wesley Clark is speaking (BTW, I met him in the green room at Fox last week and asked him about his decision to attend the fringe confab. He babbled about the moonbats' right to participate in democracy or something like that.
9:30 AM - 10:45 AM
* CIA Leak Investigation - Ambassador Joseph Wilson, Dan Froomkin, Jane Hamsher, Larry C. Johnson, Christy Hardin Smith, Marcy Wheeler, Murray Waas

* A Sustainable Energy-Energize America - Jérôme Guillet, Mark Sumner, Adam Siegel, George Karayannis, Governor Bill Richardson (so much for that "moderate" label, huh? - Ed.)

11:15 PM - 1:15 PM
Lunch Keynote - Senator Barbara Boxer
Hell, Babs even gets downright giddy at the Kos krackpots' moonbattery:
This week, Boxer told The Chronicle that in her speech here Friday, she "hopes to inspire everyone to keep doing what they're doing. They serve an important function, especially in these times of media consolidation."
Plus, Boxer said, she loves the "tongue-in-cheek" and "unfiltered" take that blogs offer on the often-stuffy world of Washington politics. "I laugh, because they say a lot of things that I wish I could, but I can't, because I'm a senator, and there's a certain amount of decorum you have to maintain," she said.
No word as to whether Babs gets a kick out of the Kos' take that Katrina victims had it coming to them (except in New Orleans, since they voted for Kerry there and were thus worthy of compassion), or that the Americans dragged through Iraq on tape reaped what they sowed...those guys are such hoots over there at the Kos, huh?

"If you don't rebuke Coulter, you endorse her polarizing views! However, when we don't rebuke (and instead enjoin) the Kos krew, you can't accuse of similarly endorsing those polarizing views! While we laud the Kos folks for exercising their right to free speech (consequences be damned of said speech), we're shocked that Coulter is exercising her right to free speech!" Got it. Thanks for the clarification.
