If I say anything about this, I will go ballistic yet again. Bad form for a peace advocate. Go ballistic for me, okay? From AmericaBlog:
"UPI and FOX cover Coulter calling John Edwards a 'faggot,' but AP, Wash Post and NYT nowhere to be found. UPDATE: See John Edwards' response and also repudiation by Republic candidates McCain, Giuliani and Romney. Yeah, I know, but it's better than nothing. I think. Read on.
"None of the 'normal' media (meaning, non-FOX and non-UPI) is touching this story with a ten foot poll. Why is that? It's not like Ann Coulter isn't a big deal. Like it or not, she was on the cover of TIME just, what, a year or two ago? She's a bigot, a loud-mouth, and a jerk, but to write her off as irrelevant is simply a lie. Here is UPI's coverage.
Ann Coulter calls John Edwards 'faggot'
WASHINGTON, March 2 (UPI) -- Best-selling right-wing author Ann Coulter, speaking to a conservative audience in Washington Friday, called former Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C., a "faggot."
Coulter was a featured speaker at the 34th annual Conservative Political Action Conference. Following her prepared remarks, televised on C-Span, Coulter was asked to talk about Edwards.
"It turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word 'faggot,' so I'm kind of at an impasse -- I can't really talk about Edwards," she said.
"Rehab" may have been a reference to "Grey's Anatomy" star Isaiah Washington's decision to go into rehab during a public relations firestorm after he called one of his co-stars a "faggot."
Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean called on Republican presidential candidates, especially those who attended the conference, to denounce Coulter's remark, Fox News reported.
Coulter has previously suggested that other prominent Democrats are gay -- including former Vice President Al Gore, former President Bill Clinton and Sen. Hillary Clinton, Editor & Publisher reported. All of them, including Edwards, are married, and Bill Clinton's heterosexual tendencies caused a certain amount of well publicized trouble for him as in the White House.
Ballistic on Coulter. Ballistic on Howard Dean, who has gone all mute on Gore sliming. Gah!!
UPDATE: Here is John Edwards' response to Coulter's projectile spewing.
