More fallout from Coulter's out of the left field "faggot" remark. The right side of the blogosphere has completely distanced themselves from her. Everyone is shocked, shocked I tell you. Yawn.
Now look, it may have been a poor choice of words but further my investigation reveals John Edwards' campaign has a mostly gay staff and rumors about his sexuality are rife. Just for knowing.
The fact is if there is any true to these rumors, that perhaps Edwards is gay, shouldn't we know that? Shouldn't we know if this man is deceiving his wife, children, country and living a lie? Shouldn't we know if a man that represents the party that celebrates gay rights is so ashamed of it, he lives a ginormous lie? Regardless of your position on gay marriage, regardless of whether you celebrate or merely tolerate the gay lifestyle, we ought to know if John Edwards is a liar and a hypocrite.
The left's position was made clear by Kerry's mentioning of Dick Cheney's gay daughter during the Presidential debate in 2004.
"If you were to talk to Dick Cheney's daughter, who is a lesbian, she would tell you that she's being who she was, she's being who she was born as."
By now you’ve probably heard about Ann Coulter’s dumb comments at CPAC. In less than 24 hours, it’s already become a fundraising tool for the Left. HuffingtonPost is promoting the fundraising letter. And a search of DemocraticUnderground shows no less than 5 discussion threads dedicated to the subject. Even a search of Yahoo News turns up tons of articles about the event. (including articles relating to GOP negative responses to Coulter’s comments)
UPDATE: I like what Carolyn said;
So she called him a faggot or implied he was one - so what? He looks like one, so she can call him anything she wants. What IS this PC nonsense?
Come on, this is bullying by the PC crowd. "Ohhhh, she called him the 'f' word." Excuse me, but does anyone notice that no one calls a black rapper for using words too filthy for me to even type in his rap music? And it sells. And everyone just goes - ho hum, freedom of speech. And Muslims get to scream chop off someone's head and we get ho hum, freedom of speech.
But a white conservative female says 'faggot' and the world has to come to a stop. Oh, come on. This is ridiculous. This is playing the PC game started by gays with this screaming, oooohhhh, that's just AWFUL to say that naughty word. Or even imply it.
Big deal. It's a word. I say get over it and don't pay the liberal PC game. It's not about a word, it's instead about power, using that power to terrorize other people. Making them look over their backs, making them scared of you, etc. This is about bullying. And this stupid word, faggot, is the club the bullies are wielding. Yeah, well, I say stuff that damned club, swing it at your own head. I'm not ducking.
That's my two cents.
Amen baby amen.
UPDATE: Jeramyakova adds this pearl;
What the media didn't report from Ann's comments:
I do want to point out one thing that has been driving me crazy with the media, how they keep describing Mitt Romney's position as being "pro gays" and that's going to upset rightwingers." Well, screw you! I'm not anti-gay. We're against gay marriage. I don't want gays to be discriminated against.... In addition to blacks, I don't know why all gays aren't Republicans. I think we have the pro-gay position which is anti-crime and for tax-cuts. Gays make a lot of money and they're the victims of crime. (laughter) No, they are. And this is how the media portrays us.
