But the same liberal socialist media have no problem with calling Bush and those who voted for him Nazi's, War Criminals and worse.

And some on the left voicing regret that The VP WAS NOT killed last week by the terrorist bomb.

Shut up, Anne say whatever you want, yet again some REPUBLICANS prove to me they are spineless jellyfish willing to eat their own to ganner favor with the media elite. Half of which are in fact homosexuals (faggots).

They wouldn't have even covered CPAC in the first place lol. It's not like the media would have made CPAC look like a great thing anyway...

Whats wrong Bunsy Wunsy? Got your panties all in a twist?

That's stupid *rap too, but de rigeur at FR these days.

Don't think this hurt Rudy. Likely hurt Romney the worst. He won the straw poll. There's probably a thread on that somewhere. It's Romney's breath she sucked out, though in a small way.

Did anyone actually hear Ann. She was making a point not about gay people; but politically correct people.

Yes, that's what she was saying. A shame she didn't explain that to the press. Immediately. Rather than revel in the "controversy".

It would be better, in my opinion, to not have a CPAC at all than to have one that presents conservatism as a hostile, people-hating ideology. We conservatives have enough trouble overcoming the false things that are said about us without paying for a platform upon which we shoot ourselves annually in the foot.

I've been reading Ann Coulter's works for years now, and I could not find any.

You either stand up for Coulter and CPAC or you fall into the camp of picklebob12, on YouTube. 335K+ views of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sx9Bi3C4rs8. Pickbob12 says:
ann coulter deserves to get her legs brocken and hang her on a pole covered in needles and then admit she is a megabitch and be put in exile wih steaks in her face
Which side are you on, which side are you on?

Still, what's with the steaks on her face? Are they from Ruth's Crisp Steak House?

Your admissions prior to stating "and the worst,..." discredits your observations on a conservative commentator....If you posess all of these abhorent atributes, why does the moderator continue to accept your DU tripe?

I don't know, why don't you ask him. It seems perfectly reasonable to acknowledge the commentary of some of the jerks posting here up front, in the interest of getting them out of the way.

It seems to me it was a foolish comment, which should have been explained immediately. Ann may enjoy being the focus of CPAC, but that's not what it's about. Of course i'm just a peddler of DU tripe.

A great many Freepers feel that way, thus the multitude of personal attacks.

While it's not a comment I would have suggested I have to laugh that those who have called our President a Nazi, a liar, a murderer, a terrorists, etc. are the ones screaming loudest.

As Obama said, why should I apologize for someone elses remarks.

"Ann called John Edwards a queer."

No she didn't.

She called him a faggot, and he is one.

He is a girly man all the way.

You and millions of others may equate the two terms as synonymous, but I do not.

We used to call the faggy kids faggots all the time when I was younger, and I had no idea about what homosexuality was at all.

John Edwards is a faggot, and queer/homosexuality has got nothing to do with it.

True, but that wasn't the intent. I'm thinking she won't be speaking at the convention.

Not much you can do about a jerk on youtube. But CPAC isn't youtube.

Ann is not running for any office so who cares what she says when she speaks from the heart.

I am tired of every little comment offending someone. People need to suck it up and get on with business rather than nitpick one journalist's comments.
I for one don't care who gets offended. If the truth is being spoken it is the most basic of rights to point out the obvious. Anyone who attempts to shield people from the obvious by changing the focus from the truth to the messager is part of the repression of the freedom of political speech.

The fact that Ann Coulter was able to overshadow CPAC in 5 seconds tells me that CPAC was a waste of time.

We don't need the high minded motivation of Conservative pep rallies to remind us of our responsibilities. We don't need to see the major Republican candidates running to the camera to denounces Coulter's remarks. We don't care to read comments here at FR by fellow Republicans willing to throw Ann Coulter overboard. And most importantly, we don't need left oriented advisories regarding the effects of 'Coulter Fallout' on the Right.

In questioning, though not addressing the faggot comment, she endorsed Romney.Romney is the best candidate we have." She said Rudy Giuliani is too liberal -- "when both candidates for president support abortion I think we can hang it up as a country.

He [Romeny] tricked liberals into voting for him. I like a guy who hoodwinks the voters so easily.

I don't see where he had a choice.

OK, you obviously feel Edwards is a faggot.

Do you think Justice Stevens should be poisoned?

Is it repression of freedom of political speech to suggest that's a really stupid comment too?

The Rats are great at name calling, but when they are backed in a corner by the truth, they whine.......ohhhh I was callleddddd a nammmeeeee and I want to cryyyyyyyy wahhhhhhhhhhhhhh no fair waaaaaaaaaaaa.
And Bush has been silent while being called a lot of vile and dispicable names. It has to hurt. But you don't hear him whining! He just kicks islamofacists

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

If you don't get that she was talking about people who say politically incorrect things being shamed into rehab these days, then your reading comprehension skills need work.

No they don't. If she wants to go on Bill Mahers show and go tit for tat - that's a whole different thing. Just like the sponsoring group said - this event was about the representation of conservatives and the speakers are sysmbols of who conservatives are. Now people (not Ann she doesn't apologize) are having to apologize and distance themselves from her poor judgment.

Ann Coulter once again made certain news coverage of CPAC would be focused upon her instead of upon the conservative movement's goals and principles.

Like the coverage is so great when it focuses on those goal and principles. Wake up! We all have those same goals and principles, Lady Coulter included. Ann really knows what she is doing.

Yes, and they'd be more thrilled if Romney thanked Ann for her support and said, sure, Edwards is a faggot.

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