Coulter-geist to Haunt Harrisburg

Coulter-geist to Haunt Harrisburg. Right wing media darling Ann Coulter is the keynote speaker at this year’s Pennsylvania Leadership Conference . Coulter is the author of such books as "Treason: Liberal Treachery From the Cold War to the War on Terrorism," and "Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right." Coulter is known for outrageous, dare we say, neo-fascist remarks such as:

"We should invade their countries, kill their leaders, and convert them to Christianity."

"We need to execute people like John Walker in order to physically intimidate liberals, by making them realize that they can be killed, too. Otherwise, they will turn out to be outright traitors."

"My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building."

There was a time in the not too distant past when even the far right would distance themselves from such remarks. Now Coulter is a spokesperson for the "mainstream" of the GOP. Joining Coulter at this event are the two presumptive leading candidates for the Republican nomination for governor, Jeffrey Piccola and William Scranton III. also joining Coulter will be Susan Staub (PA Right to Work), numerous state legislators, and RJ Harris of Clear Channel Communications,

Coulter is speaking on Friday, April 15 at 6:00 PM at the Holiday Inn Harrisburg East, situated ¼ mile off Exit #247 of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Her event is sold out, but progressives might want to send her a Keystone State welcome anyway.

The Pennsylvania Leadership Conference is co-sponsored by Harrisburg news-talk radio program WHP-580-AM. Another branch of the "liberal" media owned by Clear Channel. Oh, and Gib Armstrong is speaking there too.

    Coulter is so revolting and disgusting as to render herself irrelevant among anyone with half a brain. How she continues to get air time and a platform for her motuh is certainly beyond me!
