Coulter should be ashamed of word choice

November 23, 2012
The Alpena News

I am writing this letter to vent my frustration over a news segment I was watching on TV right before the election on which Ann Coulter called President Obama a retard, not once but twice. I was totally blown away. I am so tired of the Ann Coulters, Glen Becks, and Rush Limbaughs being able to completely humiliate and degrade anyone they please without having to account for their disrespecting mouths. The other people on the show with her all laughed and thought it was so cute. How dare they.

We are deeply offended as my husband, Pete, and I have been blessed with four great grandchildren. We are extremely proud of our third child, Connie, who is an exceptionally smart and beautiful daughter with Down Syndrome. She just turned 50 this summer. She is the light of our lives and is so precious to us. Her heart is as big as the world and she would never intentionally hurt anyone.

Ann should come and spend a day with Connie because Connie could issue her a college degree on how to treat people. Ann, you might actually learn something instead of just thinking you know it all. Connie has more common sense in her little finger than you have in your whole body, Ann.

Where are our values going? Where are the producers of these programs who allow this horrible behavior to go on? I hope that in writing this, people will think of other's feelings before they actually say such hurtful things like this. I just really feel the need to stand up for all of our special people.

Thank you for allowing me to express this. It's made me feel much better.
