Dragon Lady Spews Venom--AgainMercifully we haven't heard much from dragon lady Ann Coulter since the story broke about her committing voter fraud in Florida last year. However, it seems the miserable hag has crawled out from under her rock to spew more of her hate filled rhetoric at the Conservative Political Action Conference this week. By now you've undoubtedly heard her charming remarks regarding John Edwards saying:
"I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word ‘f*ggot.’"Here's a link to the video of her saying it if you actually want to see her in action. Just don't look her in the eye while you watch lest you turn into stone. What is chilling is the audience's reaction to it. First they gasp, then break into applause as if to say "Did she really say that? I can't believe it. But ya know what? Edwards is kind of a f*ggot, and we HATE f*ggots! Yeah, GIVE IT UP FOR ANN COULTER--WOO HOO!!!" It's very, very creepy. All of the major Republican presidential candidates were on hand for the remarks with the exception of John McCain.
Quite wisely, three of the Republican presidential candidates responded quickly to Coulter's remarks. Kevin Madden, a spokesman for Mitt Romney said: “It was an offensive remark. Governor Romney believes all people should be treated with dignity and respect." A spokesman for Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told The New York Times Coulter's comments "were wildly inappropriate." Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said, "The comments were completely inappropriate and there should be no place for such name-calling in political debate." We're still waiting to hear from the other Republican nominees. Brownback, you out there? How about Huckabee? Bueller? Anyone?
