I would assume that many people might look at Ann Coulter in her self-appointed role as spokesperson for Christianity and think "I'd rather take my chances."

I don't understand.............she DIDN'T actually call him a faggot - she made a joke. She didn't come right out and say: "John Edwards is a faggot".

What's the problem?

Newt Gingrich, (speaking at CPAC) blamed the residents of New Orleans' 9th Ward for a "failure of citizenship," by being "so uneducated and so unprepared, they literally couldn't get out of the way of a hurricane."

And he called for a "deep investigation" into this "failure of citizenship."

Here's the full quote:

"How can you have the mess we have in New Orleans, and not have had deep investigations of the federal government, the state government, the city government, and the failure of citizenship in the Ninth Ward, where 22,000 people were so uneducated and so unprepared, they literally couldn't get out of the way of a hurricane."
I believe that he wasn't criticizing the citizens of NO but rather the failure of the government to provide adequate education and resources to allow the people to take care of themselves.

"I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate Joe Lieberman, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word ‘kike,’ so I — so kind of an impasse, can’t really talk about Lieberman."

Yes I AM serious.......she didn't make a personal attack on him - she was making a joke.

Americans are so fanatical about free speech so why are they coming down on her so hard?

Again, a free speech issue would be if she wasn't legally allowed to say the crap she uttered here. But she is.

And since you can say whatever you want, you also have to live with the echo.

I think it's not too hard to get that Ann Coulter definitely isn't making a joke here.

Yes, we have free speech. That doesn't mean you can say whatever you want and have no feedback, though, genius.

What kind of sick fucking joke insults an entire group of people? What if it was about gender, race, or religion?

It doesn't matter in the least that it's a joke. She strongly insulted every homosexual in that. Why? SHE WAS USING IT AS A DEROGATORY TERM, NITWIT.

i think she was trying to be funny -- and she knows her audience. the kinds of people at this conference are going to think that it's someone to call someone a "faggot."

after all, Republicans are known for their worldliness and sophistication.

Yeah, it's a two-sided sword here. For her and her audience it's a joke, for everyone else it's just another expression of stupidity.

And their maturity, apparently.

I've decided to enjoy AchtungBono's posts as first-rate parody.

That may be the only way to do it.

Much better I think.

Even if it's a joke, then she jokingly called Edwards a "faggot". But she still called him one...how you could draw any other conclusion from that quote is beyond me.

And I won't even get into the Gingrich thing...throw that quote into a Gingrich/English translator and I'm guaranteeing 100% you don't get "we need to investigate the government". It would come out more like "blah blah blah those stupid n****rs in the ninth ward were too busy smoking crack to get out of the way of a hurricane". Newt is a vile spiteful hateful man...we've heard his drivel for over 15 years now and he's never said anything to make one think that my translation isn't his most likely intent.
