Meghan McCain, Ann Coulter trade words over murder 'joke'

Meghan McCain, Ann Coulter trade words over murder 'joke', Meghan McCain, Ann Coulter traded angry words over a murder "joke" that Coulter posted online on her blog. Although the comment by Coulter was removed, McCain took to Twitter on April 11, 2013 to strike back, reported Yahoo! News.

Here's how it started. Coulter wrote, "MSNBC's Martin Bashir suggested that Republican senators need to have a member of their families killed for them to support the Democrats' gun proposals. (Let's start with Meghan McCain!)"

McCain, obviously alerted to the blog post, countered with a message on Twitter that read, "Apparently Ann Coulter made a joke about me being killed in a recent column. I should expect nothing less but disgusted regardless." She added, "My father is a very famous politician. My family gets a lot of threats. Joking about me being killed really isn't funny or appropriate."

Ann Coulter is no stranger to controversy, and the two women have exchanged barbs before, although calling for another woman's murder does go beyond the limits of good taste and common sense even if it was intended as a joke. Has the Meghan McCain, Ann Coulter feud gone too far this time? Comments are welcome.
