On Ann Coulter - Idiotic. Disgusting. Stupid. Moronic. (conservatives respond)
Hugh Hewitt Townhall site ^ | Friday March 2nd, 2007 | Dean Barnett

Posted on 03/03/2007 6:46:09 AM PST by ajolympian2004

Idiotic. Disgusting. Stupid. Moronic.

I guess you could say that Ann loves to shock us, but at this point, who’s shocked? She obviously can’t behave well enough to attend a respectable political gathering. It’s not a lack of intelligence. It’s an indifference to self-control and a preening sort of narcissism that compels her to need the spotlight, even if it’s unflattering.

(For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s audio of her calling John Edwards a “faggot” at CPAC today.)

---

Michelle Malkin -

***4:15pm update***

Ann Coulter just finished her riff on Al Gore, tossed out some cute jokes ("You can understand why Hollywood is concerned about global warming. You know what heat does to plastic."), and ended with a cheap one-liner about John Edwards being a "faggot." (Paraphrasing) She said she would refrain from commenting on Edwards because "if you say faggot, you have to go to rehab."

A smattering of laughter.

Not from this corner.

Crickets chirping.

---

Bryan Preston of 'Hot Air' -

Ann Coulter is speaking at CPAC as I write. As is typical, she gave a brief speech full of her usual witticisms, including a few brilliant attacks on Al Gore’s green hypocrisy. All was good. Untill the last few seconds, when she launched into a joke about John Edwards.

Here’s what she said.

“I’d say something about John Edwards, but if you say ‘faggot’ you have to go to rehab.”

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.

My comments... what should have been a day to celebrate a Reaganesque speech by Duncan Hunter, and good speeches by Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee was overshadowed by an unhinged comment by Ann Coulter. She is an absolute idiot for saying something like this at CPAC.

From john edwards campaign website -

Friday afternoon, Republican mouthpiece Ann Coulter brought hate-speech politics to a new low.

This video shows Coulter addressing the American Conservative Union's Political Action Conference, March, 2, 2007 in Washington, D.C.

We must show that inflaming prejudice to attack progressive leaders will only backfire.

Can you help us raise $100,000 in "Coulter Cash" this week to keep this campaign charging ahead and fight back against the politics of bigotry?

Ann Coulter has no capacity whatsoever as a representative of the GOP, or conservatives for that matter.

people say that the "dinosaur media" is dying, but it's quite alive.

witness my neighbors who sit on their butts all day, eating, and watching tv and they believe everything they see on the stupid box.

and, they're ANGRY!

my neighbor went off on me last night about the iraq war.

yes, thanks to the incompetence of rumsfeld and bush and cheney the next u.s. president will be a democrap.

I agree, Coulter stepped over the line.

It's important that Republicans and conservatives send a message that we are not a party of hate.

She has no idea how much damage she has caused with her stupid remarks.

C'mon - one of the meanings of "faggot" in English usage refers to an effeminate man. The Democratic Party is full of Breck Girls who pretend to be men. As a joke, it leaves something to be desired but Ann Coulter is right John Edwards is a phony. You won't see the Democrats check into rehab anytime soon for not figuring out how to be real men. Even conservatives don't get it and I'm disappointed in them.

I used to like her. Now it seems she just wants to shock. But I think the Edwards campaign is going a touch overboard. Liberals say some pretty nasty things as well, on his own site at times.

I really hate what politics has come to. It is not even close to being about the people now.

Thank you, Ann!! I love you!

Read the quote again and place into context. People hear what they want to hear, especially the propaganda media and Dems. It's brilliant.

People are afraid of words. They fear words. Pathetic. This is the perfect example of the evil of political correctness. Ann scored a grand slam, and many don't even realize it.

This is not the first time that Ann has said something "edgy". I think that the candidates need to distance themselves from her remarks, as does the GOP - however, this does not need to be turned into a round of self-flaggelation. This could lead to it being blown up into a much larger incident.

What is regrettable about this, having thought about it - is that Edwards was on the ropes because of having hired anti-Catholic bloggers - this just injected some life into his listless campaign.

This is what Ann really said:

http://www.upi.com/NewsTrack/Ann_Coulter_calls_John_Edwards_faggot/20070302-105935-6328r/

It turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word 'faggot,' so I'm kind of at an impasse -- I can't really talk about Edwards," she said.


"Rehab" may have been a reference to "Grey's Anatomy" star Isaiah Washington's decision to go into rehab during a public relations firestorm after he called one of his co-stars a "faggot."

Hardly a new low. While Ann may have crossed the line, Mother Sheehan called Bush the "worst terrorist in the world" recently.

Why the HELL does Edwards need $100,000 or someone else's money if he can build that huge house he can afford $100,000 of his own money. This just a stupid effort to get money for his campaign. But I agree it was quite below the belt for Ann to say this.

I guess I'm an uncouth Republican, because I thought it was funny. Republicans act like there are Queensbury rules for a street fight. Democrats seem to have no such inhibitions, and as a result, they win a lot more than their bankrupt policies justify.

This whole defense of Ann Coulter by pointing out what liberals have said over the years is really pathetic. I'll stand by fellow conservatives Michelle Malkin, Bryan Preston, Dean Barnett and others who will not use delection tactics to defend the indefensible. This was at CPAC!

Best-selling right-wing author Ann Coulter, speaking to a conservative audience in Washington Friday, called former Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C., a "faggot."

I realize there is a bigger point to this thread, but WTF is going on in journalism when in this one sentence they can label Coulter "right wing author" yet there was not a "left-leaning" "left-wing" "leftist" or "liberal" to describe Edwards? This is where we are losing the war of words.

I thought dear Ann was a BIT nasty about continuing to talk about candles the night she was on H & C and Ed B and his wife were on with her. She had so much other ammo (like the Crawford Ranch being so green) that she didn't need to keep hammering a clearly simplistic point.

My concern is that she is falling into a Dem trait---symbolism over substance. Ann is too smart and can fill the room with substance (facts)...she shouldn't resort all her talents to symbolism. She's better than that.

Ann's smart enough to work with facts and not over sensationalize, but then...sensationalism is all that counts in the media anymore. I guess we can't blame Ann for that...now, CAN we?

AND...Thanks for my new tag line, Ann!!!

Yeah, instead of talking about the real meat of the day, the Idiot wing of the Conservative Media Establishment YET AGAIN spend all their time shooting at each other instead of the real enemy

How about this. HOW about all you whiny losers ONE time attack the Democrats on ANYTHING instead of constantly finding reasons to snipe at your own side? How about you quit doing the Democrats PR dirty work by ignoring ALL that was said yesterday to fixate on ONE 2 sentence joke.

Until the Conservative Movement gets over this petulant childish need to spend all their time sniping their OWN side, NO Center Right candidate is going to win Nationally. Not 2008, not 2012, 2016....

Ann Coulter fires back at the left, tongue-in-cheek, in their own vernacular. Lefties have no problem criticizing sexual orientation, race or developmental disabilities so long as they're targeting their ideological enemies. IMO, she knows better, but just can't resist the temptation.

It's interesting to see that Edwards wasted no time in turning this "shocking" incident into a fund raising event. Heck, this might be the biggest puff of wind to blow into his campaign in weeks.

What I find hilarious is the feigned shock by so many folks on the wrong (left) side of the aisle, particularly Howard Dean. The mud those folks wallow in have pigs begging them to take baths. Their false senses of decency emerge only on the rare occasion that someone from the right (right) joins them in the sty.

Ann is a very witty and intelligent political thinker. She gives voice to truth that, while others may agree, they are too cowed and frightened to speak it. She has made her reputation with direct, honest candor. Given that she is also human, it is not surprising that her edgy, realistic approach to political commentary might lead her across the line now and then. It's no reason to throw her under the bus. Shake it off and move on.
