Dragon Lady Loses Ad Revenue (& Syndication)

Well, well, well, it seems Ann Coulter's venomous remarks regarding John Edwards in which she used the word "f*ggot" have come back to bite her in her bony ass, or rather, the part of her that feels the most pain--her pocketbook. Three advertisers whose ads appeared on AnnCoulter.com (pardon me for not providing a link) have pulled their support for the trash-talking wench. This from CNN.com:
At least three major companies want their ads pulled from Ann Coulter's Web site, following customer complaints about the right-wing commentator referring to Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards as a "f*ggot."
The companies in question are Verizon, Sallie Mae and NetBank. Thanks guys, you did the right thing and by doing so are sending a message that this kind of hate speech is NOT okay anymore.

Update: This morning I read on Joe.My.God. that Coulter's column has been dropped by a Tennessee paper called the Mountain Press because of her now infamous "f*ggot" remarks at CPAC last week. Here's a link to their statement. How about that! Tennessee. A RED STATE! (Shout out to Traci and Bobby!)

Update II: More papers have reportedly dropped Coulter's syndicated column, among them The Oakland Press and Lancaster New Era who said "Lancaster County residents of whatever political view -- conservative, moderate, or liberal -- deserve intelligent discussion of issues. Ann Coulter no longer provides that."

Let's hear it for Verizon, Sallie Mae and NetBank! I might even consider Verizon for internet access now. :)

I'm glad somebody took her down a peg or two.

While I laud these advertisers - the reality is that the biotch makes more money from the controversy she creates, than from these advertisers.

Oh, and one more thing! I think that the gay powers that be should do a modern-day walk out like the 60's bus strikes. In that all gays should vow watch any station which sponsors her rhetoric (not just that particular show; but any show on that station, whatsoever). Same with the publishing company of her books. Buy none from that publishing company.
