Coulter on Edwards

posted by on March 3 at 7:25 AM

So Ann Coulter called John Edwards a faggot. The video is up over at ThinkProgress. Here’s what she said…

I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word ‘faggot,’ so I — so kind of an impasse, can’t really talk about Edwards.

She was at a the Conservative Political Action Conference—along with some GOP candidates for president—and the crowd, naturally enough, broke into loud cheers. Har har—that guy married to the woman with breast cancer? Total fag! Hilarious! But Coulter isn’t breaking new ground here, as Towleroad points out. Coulter once called Al Gore a fag.

Har har har. “Faggot.” Gore and Edwards may not be faggots, but it’s really the absolute worst thing you can possibly call a guy, you know? And meanwhile in heterosexuality

Husband Sought As Woman’s Torso Found

DETROIT (AP)—Investigators found what is believed to be the torso of a mother of two who disappeared last month and they were seeking her husband as the suspect in her slaying, authorities said Saturday.

Macomb County Sheriff Mark Hackel said the torso was found in the garage of the home shared by Tara and Stephen Grant in suburban Washington Township.

As It is sucked down into the maw of It's own "heartless atheism" - (It prays to Jesus with that mouth?) - gaze long and hard at that face in the video. It is the countenance of a creature being dissolved from within by the acid and bile of Abomination.

Perhaps she thinks Edwards is gay because he's an attractive guy who could get a hot young trophy wife but obviously sees his wife as far more than a sex object, while Newtie proved his heterosexuality by dumping one of his three wives while she was in the hospital with cancer to marry his hot young mistress.

Got it.

Republican family values in action, folks.

I wish that those saps who actually buy into the "family values" schtick would realize that they are being played to by cyncical opportunists. This woman is a caricature, a Saturday Night Live version of what a conservative is. The trouble is, she attracts those people who feel that way, which pollutes the conservative movement, and turns it into a parody of itself.

Not that conservatism has any appeal to me personally, but it would be nice to have something intelligent to bounce your values against. But conservatives - at least those in the popular media - can't debate, can't discuss, all they can do is talk over you with dumb insults.

Anne Coulter is so hot. I have never seen her naked, but I am guessing she also has a big dick. Ever notice how all the trannies have big dicks?
If Edwards is a fag, is there any way Obama is too? Damn, I would pay to see Edwards and Obama on the same ticket, if you know what I mean.
Is there not video of Rudy Guiliani dressed as a woman kissing Donald Trump floating around? What gives?

Coulter's like someone who wakes up in a dark room and, feeling around for the walls, realizes, "hey, there ARE no limits". She can go as far as she wants, and the farther the better for her fans. And she has fans, shaky-voiced, trembling, worshipping fans. They ADORE her. She could have them all chanting "Sieg Heil" with no trouble at all.

The fact that these are the people who run our country shows that there's something seriously wrong with our society. Can you imagine these assholes in charge in Canada or England?

Not to sound too dramatic, but today's Republicans have shredded our national identity over the last six years.

We're taught in school that the US historically has stood for truth, justice, the American Way, yadda yadda. Now what do we stand for? Hate? Hypocrisy? Lies? Corruption?

How to make money as a cynical right-wing media whore:

1. Make an outrageous and juvenile conservative comment in a public forum.
2. Watch it reproduce like a virus on every liberal blog on the internet.
3. Laugh at all the earnest discussions about how outrageous and juvenile your comment was.
4. Accept invitations to appear on popular mainstream media talk shows to discuss your outrageous comment.
5. Smile flirtaceously, show off your legs, and plug your latest book on said talk shows.
6. Go shopping.
7. Repeat.

Please, I beg you, don't post about it here every time Ann Coulter says something stupid. It's like feeding a bratty child's cravings for attention.

Posted by tsm | March 3, 2007 9:46 AM

Ann Coulter? 46 and unmarried Ann Coulter?

Rufus--you can't have sex with Ann Coulter; her bones would snap like twigs, and you might get impaled on her jutting clavical.

Posted by Boomer | March 3, 2007 9:57 AM

It's funny because you can tell by her awkward delivery that she was pulling out her big shocking marquee joke for the night.

She's like the sixth-grader who intentionally shits his pants in the cafeteria so the whole school will talk about him.

next up: Coulter drops the n-bomb on Obama.

Posted by thegrizzle | March 3, 2007 10:07 AM

Don't worry, Coulter hates Giuliani (and McCain) maybe even more than she hates Edwards and Clinton. The "moderate Republican" standing next to her, laughing and clapping, was Mitt Motherfucking Romney, the man who has been in favor of gay civil unions almost as often as he's been against them. Which is funny, because he's clapping the death of his own career. His presidential run, which is going to flame out, is going to make it impossible to go back to Massachusetts.

"We're taught in school that the US historically has stood for truth, justice, the American Way, yadda yadda. Now what do we stand for? Hate? Hypocrisy? Lies? Corruption?"

Uh, Original Andrew - I think you're confusing the U.S. with Superman.

Be that as it may, Coulter is simply proof that, if you're a Far Right Republican, you CAN "fool all of the people all of the time", if by people we mean anyone of the same socio-political persuasion.

Listen again to the crowd's reaction. It was tentative and uncomfortable at best, apparently egged on by the reaction of others until it became a facsimile of laughter. Cuntler's '15 minutes of fame' are just about over.

Posted by ChillyMama | March 3, 2007 10:37 AM

Coulter's the best fascist fembot we on the Left could have prayed for (if we prayed). Just keep her on camera and talking--she gives voice to the racist/sexist/xenophobic "values" of the Right that make headlines and encourage the Great Mass of Undecided Voters (who decide elections) tiptoe leftward in embarassed silence...

Posted by Andy Niable | March 3, 2007 10:55 AM

I agree with Chillymama. At first, I wasn't going to listen to Miss Coulter, but then I heard the clip on Rachel Maddow (gots to have me my Rachel) and - based on my years spent in hotel ballrooms, half-listening to various speakers - it was an uncomfortable moment, with only a few doofuses really cheering, and some tepid polite clapping.

Either that, or there just weren't that many people in the room.

Posted by Catalina Vel-DuRay | March 3, 2007 11:05 AM

How will Dick and Lynn react to their skeletor cheerleader using this word? They weren't pleased when Kerry used the word lesbian in reference to daughter Mary.

She is a pregnant, unmarried, woman in a relationship with another woman who is above questioning - at least in her parents eyes she is.

Yet, the proud grandparents go straight to the till to collect funds raised by Ann Coulter who is encouraging violence against non-heterosexuals. Thier preggers daughter sure is a cash cow for the Republican party.

OH - but don't overlook the Democrats. The Edwards campaign response was an email alert and a call to raise $100,000 in "Coulter-cash." No connections are made to the 72-year old man beaten to death with a lead pipe last week and the promotion of violence.

Is it worse to call someone a macaca or a faggot?

What do the other candidates say about inciting a political conference with violent words? His response is just about as vile as anything Coulter says and as transparent as the faux concern of the Vice President's family about the treatment of their daughter.

Two more years of homo road kill on the way to the white house. Vote Democrat!! yeah, right....

We need to find a definition of Coulter along the lines of Santorum...

Posted by S Smith | March 3, 2007 11:13 AM

coulter = dick cheese. Which is appropriate, since Ann is uncut.

Posted by Foreskin Fun! | March 3, 2007 11:23 AM

I wish this didn't make me so sad. I KNOW she is just a miserable person, but it still makes my heart sink to hear this awful speech.
I like demolater's description of her-that gave me a smile.

Posted by Jorden | March 3, 2007 11:31 AM

i'm lazy ..since 'coulter' is somewhat reminiscent of cootie can't we just replace that reference for scabies with her name. and like coulter's obervances, once you've acquired them the little buggers become legion in no time. or so i've heard

Posted by riz | March 3, 2007 11:38 AM

Wow, I'm glad someone had video. I heard about this, but honestly couldn't believe it. I figured it was some mumbled comment that someone misheard or something.

But, um, nope!

Posted by no one in particular | March 3, 2007 12:58 PM

Ann Coulter in Vice Magazine CEO!

Posted by matthew fisher wilder | March 3, 2007 1:02 PM

Oh, so since she has some self-loathing Mo' picking out her cocktail dresses and bleaching her hair she thinks she has license to throw around the word faggot? Who the fuck does she think she is?

She seriously needs to get eaten out by a nice butch little lesbian, someone who actually knows how to get someone off unlike her Family Values (TM) cohorts, cuz it's obvious by this woman's idiotic speech that she hasn't had a proper orgasm ever in her life.

Posted by Brandon H | March 3, 2007 4:36 PM

chillymama, i think you might be on to something. i hope. she's such an embarassment, it would be a relief to see her finally fade into oblivion. or wind up in an asylum, at the rate she's going.

Posted by ellarosa | March 3, 2007 6:40 PM

Sad sad woman.

Posted by monkey | March 4, 2007 1:08 AM

Does this mean if I want to have a wife and three kids I'm a fag?

Posted by who cares | March 4, 2007 3:51 AM

Ann is a CUNT.

Posted by cholitio | March 4, 2007 9:23 AM

Frankly, me and my friends have wondered if he is. Such a pretty man.

Edwards is great, and a cutie pie, and right on too.

But Coulter is over the top.
Some of the posts here about her are over the top too.

So what if she is tranny? Fuckheads. She is marketing her mouth, many people do this our culture.

Good money if you can get the attention via mouth.

Hate her politics, her books are trash, but some of this trashing is way over the top.

If some Lesbian were eating her .....needs a good sexist and ugly and not about Coulter.

As long as there is FOX there will be Couldter, or her mirror. And, I think that is just the changed shape of things.

Hate speech from the left is not a remedy.

Posted by littleJOHN | March 4, 2007 12:01 PM

Sexist? Maybe (kind of a stretch)

But how, oh how, is this "hate speech"? And if it is, so what? It's OK to hate sometimes.

Posted by Don't be a simpleton | March 4, 2007 5:49 PM

31- above
you want to live at her level - OK by me, but just don't pretend you are a whole lot better

you didn't mention all the tranny trash stuff/comments - as if , of course, if she is Trans Person
that is an explanation for her pig mouth and vile politics

no, just Ann Coulter, what ever her persona or genital configuration

yuk to her, and yuk to transphobia and bashing

Posted by littleJOHN | March 4, 2007 9:58 PM

It's really just too bad that someone as lovely and talented as Ms. Colter couldn't meet someone as caring and understanding as the gentleman in the second article -- they could have made a great couple (and solved both of their problems at the same time).

Posted by bryan | March 5, 2007 11:34 AM

No, not a stretch at all.

But how, oh how, is this "hate speech"? And if it is, so what? It's OK to hate sometimes.

So, the proper response to her calling someone a faggot (hate speech) is to call her a tranny, but that's not hate speech? How ignorant are you?

Yes, let's stifle Ann because you think she's rude. Who knew there were so many facist liberals in the United States?
