Is Helen Thomas Not An Old Arab?

26 Congressmen Target Ann Coulter

News Max

Ann Coulter called liberal columnist Helen Thomas an "old Arab" and suggested she may be a security threat to President Bush in a recent column, and 26 members of the U.S. Congress are steamin' mad.

The Detroit Free Press reports that in a letter to Universal Press, which syndicates Coulter’s column, the lawmakers criticize Universal's response to the potential controversy as inadequate.

Coulter, while arguing that liberal attacks on ex-White House reporter Jeff Gannon, formerly of Talon News, were a response to the "public disgrace and ruin of New York Times editor Howell Raines, CBS anchor Dan Rather and CNN news director Eason Jordan," also took a shot at longtime Washington correspondent Thomas (who, by the way, called Condi Rice a "monster" and a "goddamn liar").

Coulter wrote, "Press passes can't be that hard to come by if the White House allows that old Arab Helen Thomas to sit within yards of the president."

Although Universal removed the "Arab" reference before sending the column to Coulter's 110 newspaper clients, the politicians are upset because Coulter kept "Arab" in the version of the column that appeared on her Web site, AnnCoulter.com. The politicos point out that she also kept the Universal copyright under the column and didn't include a disclaimer explaining that the column was worded differently from the one syndicated by Universal...
This is absolutely hilarious and demonstrates an obvious double standard in our society. If Helen Thomas was quoted as calling Ann Coulter a "white woman" in one of her columns, would it still be a big enough deal to have 26 congressman take time out of their tax-funded day to write a letter to a press agency criticizing a woman who's exercising her right to free speech? Imagine 26 Republican congressman writing Michael Moore's distribution company Miramax and complaining because he lied extensively in his movie about the President (which would still be much more reasonable). They didn't even publish the word "Arab" in the newspaper version of the article! All she did was add the word "Arab" to her personal website, and it was cause for 26 Congressman to throw a hissy fit. This whole thing is bullshit, and these OLD WHITE Congressman should have their letter to Universal press shoved right up their asses.
