Are you kidding me?

 How shameless can you get? I mean this isn't even funny.

Read this transcript of an interview that Ann Coulter did with Chris Cuomo:

Chris Cuomo: "To begin with the tough words, some tough words for you by the three top candidates in response to what you had said, some were calling it a homosexual slur, you said it was a taunt. They all came out when you were talking about John Edwards and said this was wrong. We must deny it. Fair criticism of you, or a shift towards the tolerant among the GOP?"

Ann Coulter: "No, no, I was denounced all over. All over. I think the one that hurt the most was from ‘I'm a little girl in a pink party dress.com.’ Very upsetting."

Cuomo: "Why?"

Coulter: "Though about the same time, Bill Maher said– And, by the way I did not call John Edwards the F-word. I said I couldn’t talk about him because you could go into rehab for using that word."

Cuomo: "You said you were joking. You were joking."

Coulter: "Oh, yeah. Yeah. I wouldn't, I wouldn’t insult gays by comparing them to John Edwards. That would be mean. But about the same time, you know, Bill Maher was not joking and saying he wished Dick Cheney had been killed in a terrorist attack. So, I’ve learned my lesson. If I’m going to say anything about John Edwards in the future, I’ll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot."

Cuomo: "So let's get off of you, but let's get your view on what’s going on with the party right now. You hear what the speculation is, you know what the poll numbers are."

Funny. Biting. Irreverent. Typical Coulter. But guess what the libs are hitting her with? They are taking that one quote out of context and claiming that she is calling for the assassination of John Edwards. They are screaming "HATE SPEACH!!!" when really she was just making an ironic statement.
