Ann Coulter, that spawn of Satan with a mouth that just won’t quit, is quoted as saying “I was going to have a few comments on the other democratic candidate, John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word “faggot” so I’m kind of at an impasse. Can’t really talk about Edwards” I didn’t make that up – you can find the clip on YouTube. It’s her, and those are her words. Sadly, there were people in audience who laughed and clapped. What a bunch of yahoos.
But getting back to little Annie, I would just like to suggest that if she can’t talk about a man who was the first guy in his family ever to go to college, who got an undergrad degree in textile technology (because his Dad was a mill worker) and went on to law school, who made partner and then became a successful senator, who endured the loss of a child to a car accident and who supported his wife through breast cancer rather than serving her divorce papers at the hospital (like Ann’s buddy Newt Gingrich) without using inappropriate and nonsensical epithets then maybe it is time for her to back off the stage and shut the F#@%! up.
I rather like the way Henry Rollins put it some time ago. I wonder if he’ll update his open letter to Ann Coulter. (Warning – the audio no this clip is neither work nor child friendly)
