Ann Coulter Calls John Edwards 'Faggot' At Cpac

Raggedy Ann has struck again. This old dog just won't go or stay home  Yeah sure I thought it was generally accepted that we simply don't use slurs in polite society? Then again, as Andrew Sullivan noted, this woman wears what could pass for beach attire to morning interviews.

http://www.mediainfo.com/eandp/news/...play.jsp?vnu_content_id=1003553226

Speaking today at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference CPAC) in Washington, D.C., Coulter closed her remarks with: “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 ‘faggot,’ so I -- so kind of an impasse, can’t really talk about Edwards.”

Audience members appeared startled, then many clapped, and she opened the floor to questions. The event was carried on C-SPAN.

Democratic Party chief Howard Dean weighed in later: "There is no place in political discourse for this kind of hate-filled and bigoted comments. While Democrats and Republicans may disagree on the issues, we should all be able to agree that this kind of vile rhetoric is out of bounds. The American people want a serious, thoughtful debate of the issues. Republicans -- including the Republican presidential candidates who shared the podium with Ann Coulter today -- should denounce her hateful remarks."

The remarks also drew disapproval from some conservative commentators, such as Michelle Malkin. At her Hot Air site, in addition, regular "Bryan" wrote: "I’m no fan of John Edwards, but that’s just a stupid joke. It’s over the line. The laughter it generated across the room was more than a little annoying. Last year it was 'raghead.' This year it’s calling John Edwards a 'faggot.' Two years in a row, Coulter has finished up an otherwise sharp CPAC routine with an obnoxious slur that liberals will fling at conservatives for years to come. Thanks, Ann."

She's just playing to her base-the lunitics on the far right. No one else takes her crap seriously anymore.

Absolutely MD, because this is one of the best examples of how poor the state of political discourse actually is. Attention whores like Coulter and Michael Moore shouldn't be invited to these events at all, but organizers keep them coming for obvious reasons. At a time when conservative politics needs clarity and direction, people like her are pulling everything back into the mire.

Some of Andrew Sullivan's comments after having attended the event:

Being a gay man in a crowd that cheers a woman denigrating someone for being a "faggot" is an educative experience. Seeing college kids line up to worship her tore me up. These kids deserve better. They're young and smart enough to be interested in conservatism - and this is what they are getting? From a stage where two presidential candidates just spoke? I guess I've been a bit of a smug ironist who just got mugged by conservative reality.

When you see her in such a context, you realize that she truly represents the heart and soul of contemporary conservative activism, especially among the young. The standing ovation for Romney was nothing like the eruption of enthusiasm that greeted her. One young conservative male told her he was single and asked for her cell-phone number. Other young Republicans were almost overwhelmed in her presence. "When are you going to get your own show?" one asked, tremulously. Then there's her insistence on Christianism as the central message for Republicans: "There are more people voting on Christian moral values than on tax cuts." This from an unmarried woman who wears dresses that are close to bikinis on the morning news. Hey, it's Democrats who are Godless.

Her endorsement of Romney today - "probably the best candidate" - is a big deal, it seems to me. McCain is a non-starter. He is as loathed as Clinton in these parts. Giuliani is, in her words, "very, very liberal." One of his sins? He opposed the impeachment of Bill Clinton. That's the new standard. She is the new Republicanism. The sooner people recognize this, the better.

Yesterday, the Fox Noise Channel was described in another thread here with, "I realize that FOX isn't perfect, but they offer the best mix of viewpoints from both sides."

Ann Coulter is a frequent guest/paid commentator on Fox.

Ergo, to some, the opinion of someone who thinks calling Edwards a faggot is acceptable, is a quality viewpoint that deserves airing.

You know, there are times when things are so obvious, I wonder why people just don't see it.

So when you turn on the BBC News at night, do they have commentators who call your elected officials "wankers", "poofters", etc. in public?

It's not about hurt feelings...John Edwards could probably give a shit what Coulter says. But that kind of immature comment is very unprofessional, especially when speaking after two presidential candidates. It's not name calling, it's slander...

True but the question still is the same. Is it good practice for a politician (or political hack) to call an opposition MP, etc a "wanker" in public?

That could make sense to some extent... in some face to face encounters where bullshitting through their teeth is the political norm. However there is nothing positive that comes out of this type of incident. Politics at its best...thats bullshit.

Ann is a very sad and sick person. She is nothing but an jerk. Calling someone the (in the USA) the offensive term 'faggot' just because they opposes our war policy in Iraq along with some progressive ideas, is an insult to many peoples intelligence. She seems to have a pathological hate for anyone not a hard core Conservative. Hopefully someday (soon)she will go to far or found to be a hypocrite (like 'conservative' social critic Bill Bennett was found to be into big $$$ legal slot and gaming) and be rejected by the media, even Fox News.

Humm... How is it, that you can give Ann Coulter crap when she calls Pretty Boy John Edwards a faggot, but simply ignore the fact that Joy Behar, from "The View," just this week called GWB and his crew "liars," and more importantly, "murderers."

Hummm??? You "guys," and I say that in quotes, get your "panties," and I again, say that in quotes, in a wad because someone uses the "gay" tag on one of your precious democratic candidates, but then, on a bigger scene, a "Hollywood Type" calls the President of the United States a Murderer, and you don't have a problem with that.

Did anyone catch John Edwards getting his d**k sucked by another man, or doing another homosexual activity? There are NO facts to back it up. Joy Behar has facts to back her claims up about Dubya and his Crime Family being liars and murderers. Dubya lied about the WMD to get us into a war that has killed 3,000+ of our own and another 50,000 or so Iraqis.

Stunning. The words "liar" and "murderer" aren't slurs. They may be factually inaccurate or slanderous, as the case may or may not be. That's the point here. At an event that should be characterized by serious language and presentation, there's absolutely no place for using slurs. Joy Behar is totally out of Coulter's league of influence anyhow and you know it. She's a nobody talk show host in a time slot only watched by those ill, retired, or breastfeeding.

Anyway, it's indicative from your choice of quotations that you don't find such slurs to be all that reprehensible to begin with, which is more a character fault stemming from lack of proper perspective than anything else.
