Sigh. So Ann Coulter is once again generating headlines, as she called John Edwards a "faggot" at the CPAC convention. As everyone gets into a froth, Ann is laughing all the way to the bank. This stuff helps her sell books, and continues to get her publicity, which in turn gets her speaking gigs.
Now, we here at CliffSchecter.com could call her a tranny with an Adam's Apple so large it could clog a toilet. We could point at that as a childless single woman, she has far more in common with KD Lang than June Cleaver. We could mention that she reminds us of Olive Oil from the Popeye cartoons, though Olive wasn't a bilious skank. But that only stoops to her level, and does nothing.
No, the only way to change this is to make her toxic. We have to expose her as an attention seeking, vulgar bombthrower who has no place in politics, and to make sure that any viable candidate for any office has to repudiate her. We have to hunt down Mitt Romney, and have him disown her endorsement today, or tar him as intolerant.
We also have to get the Republican leadership to disown her comments. The Weekly Standard went after Arianna Huffington after some posters on her website cheered the attempt on the Vice-President's life. Now we ought to make The Weekly Standard, and every other so-called respectable Republican, repudiate Coulter and the CPAC crowd, which applauded. These aren't random anonymous posters to a website, this is a leading light of the conservative movement and the actual foot soldiers of the movement. If they don't condemn Coulter and CPAC, aren't they just hypocrites?
