Conservative diva steps in it (again) at CPAC

by Jason Pye

Yet another reason why I despise Ann Coulter:

Ann Coulter almost made it through her CPAC speech without looking like a complete buffoon. . . . Near the end of her speech she said she wouldn’t talk about John Edwards because ” you have to go into rehab if you use the word ‘faggot.’”

Note to conservatives…start looking for other people to front your movement.

Hat tip to Instapundit.

My good friend, Joe Magyer (who has been live blogging CPAC for the Libertarian Party this week), has more on the Coulter speech:

It was time for the Ann. Talk about a religious following. Her reception was something like I would envision Jeff Foxworthy’s at a NASCAR race. She did not waste any time firing away by taking some shots at Al Gore and his recent issues with energy credibility. Moving past Gore, Coulter took aim at Barack Obama, or as Coulter said “B. Hussein Obama.” Coulter described our first black President as being Bill Clinton, then proceeded to say that whereas Obama would be our first half white / half black President, Clinton was the first who was half white / half trash. Then came the clincher that sent bloggers sprawling for their laptops…

You know what, I just can’t put this in print on our website. It was disgusting and classless. If this were any blog but the LP’s I would run it in a heart beat as it was a public statement by a public figure, but if you want to hear about it you’ll have to visit another site. Suffice to say, it was a major turnoff.

[...]

Sometimes being a Libertarian can be an uphill, gut wrenching experience, but at this moment I am most proud to be the lone person at Bloggers’ Corner who doesn’t have this woman stump for their candidates.

  4. John Edwards is a “sissy boy”.

    America does not need a “sissy boy” as our Commander-in-Chief.

  5. Ann Coulter is a man trapped in a woman’s body. That thing in her throat is a gerbil being suffocated.

  6. America doesn’t need a commander, let alone a chief one.

  7. Either Edwards is a faggot or he is not a faggot. I hope he is not, because being a sex perverted faggot is a despicable and disgusting thing to be.
    Romans 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections:
    for even their women did change the natural use into that which is
    against nature:
    :27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the
    woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men
    working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that
    recompence of their error which was meet.
    SAY THIS PRAYER: Dear Jesus, I am a sinner and am headed to eternal hell because of my sins. I believe you died on the cross to take away my sins and to take me to heaven. Jesus, I ask you now to come into my heart and take away my sins and give me eternal life.

  8. If Ann Coulter keeps this up she will assure the elction of the candidates she hates. Ms. Coulter offends everybody. She’s like a telethon without a disease blah blah blah.

  9. Wow, I thought only God was supposed to judge our actions.

    People like you are the reason I don’t go to church anymore.

  10. Playing with fire…

    The organizers of CPAC deserve the criticism they are getting for Ann Coulter’s remark about John Edwards. That’s kind of like inviting Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson to perform live at the Super Bowl. Coulter doesn’t soften her comments for an…
