Mary Matalin DEFENDS Coulter's diatribe against 9/11 "broads"


Transcript from Don Imus Show/MSNBC:

IMUS: What did you make of the Ann Counter deal?

MATLIN: I take her larger point that in the absence of being able to make persuasive arguments you throw out messengers that cant be its politically incorrection to argue with, you know the verbiage is a little, a little stressful.

IMUS: So you thought her comments about these women

MATLIN: I take her larger point, which is

IMUS: Why cant you comment on her calling these women harpies.

MATLIN: Because thats not her point. Thats completely not her point.

IMUS: Well no, but saying that they were happy their husbands got killed and were going to divorce them. And yeah, that theyre getting long in the tooth. Maybe they ought to think about appearing in Playboy, which is an option.

MATLIN: What do you think about her point? Her point that you cant you know Cindy Sheehan if you throw yourself in the political arena, then you should be able to address political issues, and people should be able to speak back to you.

IMUS: I agree with her point.

MATLIN: Well, then thats what I agree with.

IMUS: But i think its repugnant and repulsive and gutless to, and cheap and cheesey to call these women all these names. I mean, whether its right or not, its just something theres just. You dont go there.

MATLIN: Thats her stock and trade.

IMUS: But im surprised that you wont condemn her for these repugnant remarks.

MATLIN: I dont know her. I havent read the book.

IMUS: You dont have to know her. You know what Hitler did. Did you you him? You condemn what he did.

MATLIN: Are you comparing her to Hitler?

IMUS: No, Im not. Of course not.

MATLIN: This is the point. This is complete the point shes making. These lefty crazy people go around calling us and Hitlers and Nazis and everything and nobody say anything. She calls somebody a harpy and youd think that the whole world was on fire.

1. Matalin is to an allegedly left wing James Carville.
I think James Carville is about as left wing as I am right wing. It's about money with these people.

As for Imus, he's a right wing a-hole as much as any other.

Carville's mating with her sure makes me wonder about him.

6. Ann's Not Religious
It's all an act. She just doesn't seem like the religious type to me. Neocons as a whole don't strike me as religious. They are just using fundies to get what they want, & fundies are stupid enough to go along with them.

18. Speaking of that...
I saw a "glamour shot" of her with a cross around her neck, hair blowing. It really made me recoil in a way. And I'm a Christian. Just a strange feeling altogether. :-(

7. Exactly what point is she making that Imus agrees with
Nobody threw the Jersey Girls or Cindy Sheehan anywhere. They took up their own mantle and ran with it. What they are upset with is that there are people, directly affected by this "war on terror", who disagree with them and are not afraid to align themselves with the left. BTW, who's a greater sympathetic creature than Laura Bush, nobody dare call her on unwillingness to stand against the wrong things about this administration. Even here on DU people always come to her defense.

9. Re:
Climatic Requirements

Lettuce is a cool-season vegetable and develops best quality when grown under cool, moist conditions. Lettuce seedlings will tolerate a light frost. Temperatures between 45 F and 65 F are ideal. Such conditions usually prevail in Ohio in spring and fall. Seeds of leaf lettuce are usually planted in the spring as soon as the ground can be worked. Butterhead and romaine can be grown from either seeds or transplants. Due to its long-growing season, crisphead lettuce is grown from transplants. Transplants may be purchased or started indoors about six weeks before the preferred planting date.
Soil Requirements

Lettuce can be grown under a wide range of soils. Loose, fertile, sandy loam soils, well-supplied with organic matter are best. The soil should be well-drained, moist, but not soggy. Heavy soils can be modified with well-rotted manure, compost, or by growing a cover crop. Like most other garden vegetables, lettuce prefers a slightly acidic pH of 6.0 to 6.5.
Cultural Practices

Since lettuce seed is very small, a well-prepared seedbed is essential. Large clods will not allow proper seed-to-soil contact, reducing germination. Lettuce does not have an extensive root system so an adequate supply of moisture and nutrients is also necessary for proper development.

Fertilizer and lime recommendations should be based on the results of a soil test. Contact your local Cooperative Extension office for information on soil testing. As a general rule, however, apply and work into the soil three to four pounds of 5-10-10 fertilizer per 100 square feet of garden area.

Seed may be sown in single rows or broadcast for wide row planting. Wide rows should be 12 to 15 inches across. Cover the seeds with 1/4 to 1/2 inch of soil. Water carefully but thoroughly. Several successive plantings of leaf lettuce will provide a more continuous harvest throughout the growing season. Leave 18 inches between the rows for leaf lettuce, and 24 inches for the other types. To achieve proper spacing of plants, thinning of lettuce seedlings is usually necessary. Thin plants of leaf lettuce four to six inches or more between plants depending on plant size. Butterhead and romaine should be thinned six to ten inches between plants. Finally, crisphead transplants should be spaced 10 to 12 inches apart in the row.

An organic mulch will help conserve moisture, suppress weeds, and keep soil temperatures cool. If weeds do become a problem, either pull by hand or cultivate very shallowly to avoid damage to lettuce roots. Planning your garden so that lettuce will be in the shade of taller plants, such as tomatoes or sweet corn, in the heat of the summer, may reduce bolting.

Insect pests and diseases can occasionally cause problems on lettuce. For proper identification and control recommendation, contact your local Cooperative Extension office.
Harvesting

All lettuce types should be harvested when full size but young and tender. Over-mature lettuce is bitter and woody. Leaf lettuce is harvested by removing individual outer leaves so that the center leaves can continue to grow. Butterhead or romaine types can be harvested by removing the outer leaves, digging up the whole plant or cutting the plant about an inch above the soil surface. A second harvest is often possible this way. Crisphead lettuce is picked when the center is firm.

The author gratefully acknowledges James D. Utzinger, on whose original fact sheet this is based.

16. I'm reading a fantastic book about John Lennon right now
It's called "The Lives of John Lennon" by Albert Goldman. Very interesting. I'm just past the Beatles stage where he and Yoko are making their own way.

Just thought you might find that interesting.

Oh - and I read your posting regarding no one paying attention. I'm glad I did read what you wrote and responded, now. :)

10. I saw her on Imus that day
I've never seen Matlan so vague and Imus was definately on the
fence.

He just tries so hard to be on the correct side of every
issue.  I like Imus better when he just says what he believes
and he isn't showing off for some guest.

Matlan is getting to be a terrible guest lately, she's too,
too partisan.  She used to be kind of funny.

Edited on Fri Jun-16-06 10:43 PM by Lusted4
waiting for him to answer her questions and comments? And the swagger king wouldn't come out of hiding and respond. Seems like everybody had plenty of time and opportunity to reply, that went on for awhile.
