In olden days they killed the messenger - that's what a lot of people on here are metaphorically trying to do to Ann.

I say to Ann - keep on talking.

All true. Republicans and seemingly many so-called conservatives are Dem-lite. They all want to control speech.

Yes, the press is hostile and hungry, but that's no reason for Republicans to feed them.

You still don't get it. You will feed them one way or the other. They have to eat.

Frankly, I don't give a tinker's damn about Republicans. They haven't shown me anything that looks like a back bone. I am a conservative first and foremost. That is something the Republicans are abandoning at an alarming rate.

"Coulter Cash"

He's got a good hook there!

But what about:

Kilborne Cash: Rifle Crosshairs on a pic of Pres Bush

Carville Cash: Kneecapping

Bill Maher Cash: I’m just saying if he (Cheney about the assassination attempt) did die, other people, more people would live.

Quote from transcript...Barney Frank joking about Cheney being assassinated:

Barney Frank: They said the bomb was wasted. (laughter and applause)

Maher: That’s a funny joke.

Alex Baldwin Cash: Go to his house and kill his wife and children

And the Politicos:

Murtha Cash: Military Cold Blooded Killers

Hussein Obama Cash: GIs’ lives ‘wasted’

John Kerry Cash: Stuck in Irak

OK, yea I did already post this on another thread. But I wanted to tie it in with the cash thingie...

Right - we should all roll over and lick the boots of the politicaly correct and perpetually offended like Trent Lott did. Besides, she didn't even call him a faggot. It's an uproar over nothing.

Did I see hundreds of remarks and reams of newsprint and dozens of articles in the MSM condemning the Dems when the Lurch outed noncandidate Mary Cheney's private life on national TV ? Nope.

Try as some might to find some cleverness in her comment, the fact is it was simply a very stupid and not at all clever remark. It appears she cares more about getting attention than she does about the Conservative cause.

Moreover, the fact that Michael Moore, Al Franken and all of their ilk do what they do and say what they say does not excuse it. Why would we want to lower ourselves to that....it's stupid and childish.

"OK, you obviously feel Edwards is a faggot."

I kinda like Breck Boy. Ann can opine what she wants. Many agree, many disagree. And many others are too stupid to pick up on the connotation.

Nobody deserves to physically die regardless of what their political opposition is. But a lot of politicians need to die a political death and the truth is the only way voters know what kind of traitors they are.

Kinda like the comment that it was too bad the Afghan suicide bomber didn't kill the Vice President. That rat headed comment never made the news because the MSM is a bunch of rats as well. Rats attack over the smallest sliver of cheese, but they are about the hardest critters to get rid of.

It is a very different scenario wishing death on someone while wishing another to have a gay ol time.

I have taken credit for many allegedly stupid comments in my life and I am a better man for it.

The truth of the message will remain even after the messinger has been slayed.

It's amazing how the idiots forget about the Second Amendment to The Constitution. Ann has a right to speak her great mind. It is also amazing how all the Commies give Ann's commnets all the attention but when that Commie Bill Mahr says that Cheney is better off dead or whatever he said, That gets no coverage.

Or explaining what she probably meant:

The word faggot is occasionally used in parts of Britain to denote a silly or foolish person

"Fag" was a term used for a junior boy who acted as a servant for a senior boy at Eton College,

Now that fits Edwards to a tee from when he was running with Kerry.

Heck the pictures pretty much confirm that! LOL

She sure has a track record:

On July 27 American Republican pundit Ann Coulter said that the former Vice President of the United States Al Gore was a "total fag", and that former President of the United States Bill Clinton was a "latent homosexual", while being interviewed by MSNBC's Chris Matthews
Coulter caused a major controversy on the community; and gay rights organizations demanded to know the reason why such an offensive usage of the word was permitted by the network.

I taped her interview on the Hardball show and gave her a DVD copy.

Well do you want Ann's leg "brocken"?

Do you call a spade a spade, or think that spade is not a PC-term, so use "the black suit that isn't clubs" instead?

Well said. I think Ann has enough knowledge and wit to get her point across at an important function without using derogatory language. I think she has plenty of outlets to use her biting wit. Yes, Bill Mahr, Kennedy, Murtha, etc, etc, etc...say things that call for apologies. Her freedom of speech is not in question imo. Her timing is. The MSM will use this to their benefit..and that is just not politically a good thing. Like it or not, a lot of people were turned off by her remark (as amusing as it was).

No of course not, you brought up breaking Ann's legs.

Spade is fine referring to a card game, spade would not be fine referring to a political opponent. It's not that hard to understand. Personally if I thought Edwards was a homosexual I'd use that term, though I think Ann used it before for Clinton. If you think this wins votes, fine, you're entitled to your opinion. I think it's stupid.

A "fag" was originally a single cigarette. The whole pack of cigarettes (circa 1900) was called a faggot.

As I understand, over time the term fag came to overlap with fatigue and referred to the used, damp, limp form of a cigarette. In that case it applies to both Clinton and Edwards.

And from that analogy it came to refer to the effeminate-type of homosexual. Pretty simple, really.

Yes, in that rule of public relations Ann's remark is worth billions of free marketing to CPAC, if played right. And playing it right would mean mean not being a fag in response. Actually the Dixie Chicks would be a good example here: "Not Ready to Play Nice"!

Michelle isn't nearly as quick on her feet in a debate on an issue of the day as Ann is. I've seen Michelle get beaten up too often against a lefty on TV.

Ann is much better at framing arguments and going head to head with an oponent live. And she throws in a few cute lines, too.

However, I do like MM a lot and enjoy her work and her blog.

As far as the joke, I believe that Ann owes a big apology to all the homosexual men in this country for comparing John Edwards to them.

You are correct. their hour may be over..or not. The MSM still holds a tremendous sway over a large segment of the voting public. Not that Ann's comments will matter in the long run. Just look at their "elected" President Obama.

'Hello, read her remark. She did NOT call him a faggot."

I got it.

Ann does not say things stupidly, despite the contentions of certain FReepers, and others.

No problem. I'll call John Edwards a faggot, and I'll call him that to him right to his face while looking him in the eye, if I had the chance.

Do you honestly believe that faggot would seriously do anything about it?

This is all about a tempest in a teapot.

Edwards is a chump who because he was able to sway a few other bigger chumps that landed on juries to give millions of dollars to people who came upon tough times is now Presidential material?

I'll take my chances on the Last Day with my transgressions before me way before I'd ever join up with that freaking scumbag on anything.

Scumbag faggot, by the way.

I think it is a sad day when we let faggots or the liberals tell us what we can an can't say. How did we get here?

To be effective, insults should be based on fact. John Edwards may be a vain metrosexual, but he is apparently not homosexual. Edwards and his wife of 30 years have had four kids. This isn't about "faggots or liberals" limiting anyone's speech. This is about Ann's failure to stick to the truth, so she could retain her credibility and continue to help conservatism.

Ann's comment apparently was provoked by Isaiah Washington's "faggot" reference to his co-star on the TV show "Grey's Anatomy." The co-star is, in fact, gay, but Washington capitulated to the PC hordes, checked himself into rehab, and backpedaled frantically to apologize. Pathetic, but it had nothing to do with Edwards.

Ann should apologize for the "faggot" comment just as soon as the leftwing moonbats apologize for their "Bush lied, people died, selected, not elected, no WMD . . . " and countless other far more offensive comments which get passed along and even rubber-stamped by our Kool-Aid drinking media whores.

All I have to do is remember this

EDWARDS EMPLOYEES 1

and this

EDWARDS EMPLOYEES 2

... and I just can't stop laughing.
If you think the crisis is OMG serious, I just feel sorry for you.

Did Ann start running for office or start working for somebody's campaign while I wasn't looking?

Actually ANN would have been mean if she would have accused Al Gore of being a faggot.. BECAUSE he sounds like one.. Edwards acts like one but sounds normal.. Could be ANN could care less about either of them, for they are only democrats..

Which is much worse than being a faggot..

She didn't call Edwards a faggot. Please read her entire remark before commenting.

The quote I've seen is this:

“I was going to say something about John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word ‘faggot.’”

Unfortunately, that seems pretty clear. Maybe it does better in context, but I can't find her entire speech online.

I would guess that what she meant to say was something like this:

"We live in a culture so ridiculously sensitive to political correctness that someone can be forced to go to rehab just for using a word like "faggot" or "dyke." I'm a long way from being politically correct, so I'd better not tell you what I really think of John Edwards."

But that's not what she said.
