WASHINGTON - Outspoken U.S. conservative columnist Ann Coulter is drawing fire from Republicans and Democrats alike after publicly using a derogatory gay slur in reference to Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards.
Coulter made the comments on Friday during a speech at the influential American Conservative Union’s Political Action Conference, calling Edwards a “faggot.”
GOI: You know, in another era she'd be throwing around the "n" word around like that. Hell, she probably STILL throws it around. The thing that pisses me off the most is that the crowd was laughing over it. And we are to believe that Republicans are outraged at this too?? Not many I bet. Coulter supposed "apologized" (whatever) but then had this to say on her website, "“I’m so ashamed, I can’t stop laughing.” She then said Edwards’ campaign chairman’s main job was “fronting for Arab terrorists.”
And why are we surprised? Why are we shocked anymore by what she says?? She's a blow-hard who has nothing worth while to say so she just insults people to get attention. She's a school-yard bully. She's a nasty, nasty mean woman. She's Cruella DeVille. She's got some serious self-esteem issues obviously. She needs a team of shrinks. I'd really lay into her but she's not worth anymore space here on my blog so I'll leave it at that.
