Methinks the entire GOP needs MAJOR rehab.
I have been troubled over what I thought was my own "lone voice" in this matter. That is my inner voice. Yes, others have mentioned this previously. Someone kindly rephrased Ann's statement for her. It was to the effect, that since the politically correct climate is so unfairly charged, that the tiniest aside, might bring on the storm. Example if "faggot" brings on the storm, anything about John Edwards at this point could be used to raise a furore.
Ann is the shrewdest person in this. Again and again persons have been backed up against the wall over a comment. They have explained and re-worded what they said. They have apologized. What has been the result?
The sharks closed in with a greater feeding frenzy.
Ann did not fall for that tactic. A redoubtable Canadian feminist did say to the effect. "Don't apologize, don't explain, just get on with it". (Nellie McClung).
I will listen to the Doctor of Democracy tomorrow. Perhaps he can steady the troops. (Laughs).
What candidate in the right mind is going to side with her on this? The idea is to get elected and you will not do that if you cozy up to her. That's what any politician running for office needs and that is to give the left (and he press) ammo to be used against them.
It depends on what your definition of "is" is....
she knew exactly what she was doing and mentioning edwards name with faggot in the same sentance was going to marry the two.
and you are just perpetuating the excuse making.
She's smart enough to know what she was doing and that was link edwards to the term, faggot. She can tap dance around the issue but it's the net effect that matters and she damn well knew this would cause a stink.
She could have used any of a number of terms to whip up on him but she decided to introduce questions about his sexuality.
hmmmm... I don't know for sure....but if I was a betting man, I'd bet he's a fag.
No Republican needs permission from the likes of you or your cadre of RINO supporting mendacious prigs to use wit and innuendo against the political oppositions, let alone a champion like Anne Coulter. Waxing a little Victorian are you?
Well you can F%&K RIGHT OFF AND GO JOIN THE DU.
I remember our conversation about how the state of the world seems to be paralleling the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Anne indeed may be much as you say.
Well Put Sir Frank. Anne acquitted herself well in the Halls of the Mountain King. THe prissy RINOs sought to dominate the court, and Anne laid the whip on them with one sentence.
It may be necessary to promote her from Shield Maiden to elfinhood.
Frodo: " Oh my Goodness, Ann, Edwards IS a Mordor Faggot!"
Gee, a person who supports a candidate who is Pro-homosexual marriage, anti-secondamendment and is a typical lawyer candidate.
Of course rudy supporters dislike ann, she also said that she did not like Rudy or McCain.
The fact is this faux shock ties into the MSM fauning over a Hilary Clinton clone on the republican primary.
Those terms are not banned. They are however disrespectful and when there are used, it causes a huge storm, like what we are seeing now. Ann knew what she was doing and got exactly what see wanted!
True; but any kind of publicity seems to doom those that fall into it.
PC the epidemic of the century. The dumber they are; the more they afflicted with it.
Yes, but you miss the point, Ann as the court jester among the MSM anointed NOBILITY is NOT running for office.
Bearding the Mountain Kings in their own lair is an accomplishment, revealing the triviality of these spineless MSM candidates.
Those who support these middle of the road Democrat liberal clones as Republicans are offended by Ann's remark, and those who are conservatives are not offended. Ann applied a type of one line fractional distillation, and if people are STILL raving about Ann's contretemps, wit and humor, then it merely tells everyone where their politics are.
So vote RINO, but do not insult intelligence with this continuing witless babble.
I don't want people to use them but I will not stop anyone from using them. I never want to see books being burned of citizens locked-up for what they say.
