And for candidate Mitt Romney, who introduced Coulter, just three words of advice.
Sister. Souljah. Moment.

So Ann spoke her mind to a group of fellow conservatives. She is known to not mince words, and always is cutting edge. Should she apologize? OH good grief, can’t John Edwards handle being called that once by a beautiful blonde. Maybe she could ask to use his hair spray? Ann did not make a movie or write a book suggesting how to kill him, which has been done about President Bush. Ann did’nt have sex with him while others waited in the rose garden. She just used a politically incorrect term to a room full of people she considered to be friendly to her views.
Thinking back on my relationship with Ann now, it's dismaying to realize how a certain kind of politics can disrupt every aspect of your life.... We never had a serious conversation about politics, or anything else. Instead, we smoked, drank to excess ... and vented our anger and cruelty by hurling all manner of epithets at liberals and the disadvantaged among us.... And though she had dated John Podhoretz, a virulent anti-Semitism that I had indulged her in for far too long punctuated Ann's private conversations.
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..."
"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.
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.
I want a government with a smaller, less obtrusive footprint. I want it to build and fix roads, guard against hostile outsiders, stop crime, organize and provide for a reasonable safety net for our weakest citizens. . . basic conservative positions.
I do not want a government that examines and judges my sexual activities, desires, or choice of partners. As long as I'm not hurting someone else in my choices, it is none of government's business with whom, when, and how I have sex, and it's none of YOUR business.
That concept - that it's none of anyone else's business - is an utterly conservative (as opposed to liberal) viewpoint, and would seem to me to be the natural viewpoint of the right, of conservatives, of Republicans....
"It has little impact on anyone but the gay or lesbian person".
Absolutely untrue. It has everything to do with how our children our educated, how well our children are protected, and how we are allowed to express ourselves. Here in California it is having a huge impact. For example, if recent legislation proposed by a gay legislator passes, teachers will be FORBIDDEN to discuss negative aspects of homosexuality. All textbooks will be required to include sections on gays in history...whether or not they were actually significant contributors to said history. And guess who often marches in gay pride parades in this state-NAMBLA. Why are they there if those marchers don't support their agenda-access to underage boys, OUR CHILDREN? Who is in the forefront of lowering "age of consent" law in multiple countries? It sure isn't the Baptists. It is the gay activists.
Idiotic. Disgusting. Stupid. Moronic.
I've seen the clip, I still don't get the joke she was making.
When the left sticks up for NAMBLA and compares Bush to Hitler its free speech. Ann calls Edwards queer and shes off the rails heading for a trainwreck?
"When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We’re proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn’t have had all these problems over the years, either."
Democrats were not the only denouncing Ms. Coulter. “The comments were wildly inappropriate,” said Brian Jones, a spokesman for Senator John McCain, a Republican candidate for president who did not attend.
Kevin Madden, a spokesman for Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, said: “It was an offensive remark. Governor Romney believes all people should be treated with dignity and respect.
Ann Coulter’s CPAC remark about Edwards was despicable—completely out of bounds for civil political discourse. Like Kathryn said, it’s not surprising coming from Coulter, but that doesn’t make it any more tolerable.
Ms. Coulter, asked for a reaction to the Republican criticism, said in an e-mail message: 'C’mon, it was a joke. I would never insult gays by suggesting that they are like John Edwards. That would be mean.' 1
If anything I was insulting Atomic Mutants you idiot. Not Transsexuals or hermaphrodites or women or whatever you over-sensitive morons think.
Did you READ my insult-joke. And YES it was an insult. It was inteded to be insulting to an insulting prick and or cunt. Coulter HIDES behind her "woman-i-ness" it is her shield.
But oddly that is not what I was attacking. I was attacking her HUMANITY. She has no gender or sexuality to attack. Humans have those things.2
But the New York Times reported that she responded, in an e-mail, "C'mon, it was a joke. I would never insult gays by suggesting that they are like John Edwards. That would be mean."
"Many of our ad placements -- particularly on the Internet -- are secured in bulk with placements made by third-party buyers with a goal of trying to reach the broadest audiences possible. We ask our media buyers to avoid sites that might generally be seen as offensive or polarizing to the public, which appears to be the case with this political Web site. Our ads have been withdrawn."
"Denouncing Coulter is not enough....CPAC sponsors, the Age of Ann has passed. We, the undersigned, request that CPAC speaking invitations no longer be extended to Ann Coulter. Her words and attitude simply do too much damage."
Statement from Universal Press Syndicate, which syndicates Ann Coulter’s column: “[Coulter] is not an employee and we have no legal power to ‘fire’ her, though, of course, any of her subscribing newspapers can drop her column at any time. Whether the words she chose in referring to John Edwards were misplaced humor or outright bigotry, we would not have distributed them in her column.”

"On the heels of her well publicized John Edwards quip -- that both seem to be taking advantage of, there’s more Ann Coulter shock-and-awe. At a conference in Ft. Lauderdale over the weekend at the Center for Reclaiming America, which is connected to TV preacher James Kennedy’s Coral Ridge Ministries, Coulter reiterated her John Edwards description, and, according to Americans United for Separation of Church and State, said the following:Earlier in her remarks, Coulter noted that seven doctors and clinic personnel had been killed, saying, ‘Those few abortionists were shot, or, depending on your point of view, had a procedure with a rifle performed on them. I'm not justifying it, but I do understand how it happened....The number of deaths attributed to Roe v. Wade - about 40 million aborted babies and seven abortion clinic workers; 40 million to seven is also a pretty good measure of how the political debate is going.’A birdie on the scene told us that after the f-word remark about Johnny Boy, the hundreds of conservatives who filled the church to the brim, gasped in shock. Moments later, she bid her adieu."*

"U.S. Marine reservist Matt Sanchez was given an Academic Freedom Award at last week’s Conservative Political Action Conference, where Ann Coulter hurled her 'faggot' slur against Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards. Sanchez, who attends Columbia University, also recently appeared on conservative talk shows where he criticized 'radical anti-military students' he met during campus recruiting. Reports have since surfaced that Sanchez has allegedly worked as a gay porn star [and prostitute], prompting silence from his (now former) right-wing cheerleaders and charges of hypocrisy lobbed at Sanchez by gay bloggers."
