Mad as all Heck
The two stands are directly across the street from one another.
Vento, surveying the long lines of customers—many of whose parents were no doubt immigrants—could care less, even though he comes across as a smirking South Philly lout wallowing in his 15 minutes of fame.
In terms of business acumen, the registers are going ka-ching!
Taking Conservatism over the Top
To promote her new book, “Godless: The Church of Liberalism,” conservative extremist Ann Coulter took aim at four women who lost their husbands in the World Trade Center sneak attack by Muslim extremists.
Calling them “the Witches of East Brunswick” (New Jersey), Coulter said:
These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzis. I have never seen people enjoying their husband’s death so much.
By the way, how do we know their husbands weren’t planning to divorce these harpies? Now that their shelf life is dwindling, they’d better hurry up and appear in Playboy.
These self-obsessed women seem genuinely unaware that 9-11 was an attack on our nation and acted like as if the terrorist attack only happened to them. They believe the entire country was required to marinate in their exquisite personal agony. Apparently, denouncing Bush was part of the closure process.
Coulter’s fury is fueled by these women grabbing center stage to raise consciousness about the need to fix the nation’s security shortcomings. It galls Coulter that no one dares criticize these widows for politicizing their situation, because to do so would show disrespect to their losses. She was equally vicious to Cindy Sheehan, the mother who lost her son in Iraq and picketed the president’s ranch in Crawford, Texas:
Call me old-fashioned, but a grief-stricken war mother shouldn’t have her own full-time PR flack. After your third profile on “Entertainment Tonight,” you’re no longer a grieving mom; you’re a C-list celebrity trolling for a book deal or a reality show.
