As much as it pains me, I have to come to the defense of Ann Coulter. You, my faithful reader who has nothing better to do than read this tripe, probably know that on several occasions I have lamented Coulter's capacity to make the high road low, the sensible inflammatory and make conservatism seem unattractive.
As if to prove my point, Coulter used the word "faggot" in a lame joke about John Edwards. As if to prove Coulter's point, the Edwards camp sends poor Elizabeth Edwards, riddled with inoperable cancer, out to beg Coulter to leave the Breck Boy alone. How touching.
You can see where this is going, a very sympathetic Mrs. Edwards defends her fly weight of a husband against the slings and arrows of some raging blond harpie. Anyone who dares question Mrs. Edwards' motives will be harrangued for beating up a sick woman.
Mrs. Edwards speaks of raising the dialogue. Where was she when bloggers in her husband's employ were bashing Catholics? Where are her op eds pleading with the rabid left to stop referring to the POTUS, during war, as chimp, Hitler, idiot etc? Anyone?
Here is a big F***K Y** to you tube. They removed the original Ann Coulter lame joke video, ostensibly because it clearly shows she did not call him a "faggot", yet there are innumerable videos calling Coulter everything you can imagine.
