Cal Takes On Ann’s “Critics”

Filed under: Conservatism — olbroad @ 9:34

Ann Coulter, CPAC, and the Republican Crossroads

In Ann’s defense, there wasn’t any homophobic intent behind the joke. It was something comics do all the time: insult someone by referencing a recent headline (actor Isaiah Washington’s gay slur). It was as much a commentary on the politically-correct silliness of rehab for simply letting a crude word slip as it was a dig against Edwards. Ann explained this on Hannity & Colmes Monday night, as well as that she didn’t intend at all to suggest that Edwards is secretly gay—rather, that he’s precisely the kind of sissy sleaze that make prime targets for such sophomoric insults.

Long, but seriously informative reading.

  1. Thanks for the plug; I don’t know how we’re gonna get this movement’s head screwed on straight again.

    If people don’t like Ann, that’s one thing. But to dislike her while cheering somebody far more damaging to conservatism? I don’t think so.
