Democratic Party boss Howard Dean demanded that Republican presidential candidates denounce conservative columnist Ann Coulter after she referred to Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards as a ‘faggot’ during a speech Friday at a national conservative gathering.
Coulter, who was addressing the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., said:
"I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word 'faggot,' so I - so kind of an impasse, can't really talk about Edwards."

Yeah and Ann Coulter is a psychotic B*I*T*H!!! Since when does this loud mouth deserve merit a news thread... attention is all she/he/it lives for and doesn't do anything constructive for society. A political parasite is all she is...call Orkin!

I'm dismayed that some found a nugget of actual humor in her remark.
Would it have been funny if she had called Obama a ni*ger?
Would it have been funny if she had called Guiliani a dago?
Would it have been funny if she had called Lieberman a kyke?
I fail to see the difference.....
The sad fact is this lady (a loose term) has a rapt audience in which to spread her brand of "humor". No matter which side of the aisle you sit, civility should always carry the day.

She probably was low on publicity in the past few weeks so she decided to say something obnoxious so she could get some air time. Looks like she got what she wanted.

Does anyone see the bigger picture? She was introduced by Mitt Romney. His campaign phones went ringing off the hook.
She sunk Mitt Romney for good.
Times being what they are, Mr. Bonior let in to a little bit of excess in his plea for cash. “Coulter’s attack was no accident,” he said. “It happened on national television at one of the year’s biggest conservative conferences. Dick Cheney and most of the Republican candidates were in the audience. She was even introduced by Mitt Romney.”
Mr. Cheney was not there. Mr. Romney preceded her and mentioned that she was speaking later — he jokingly referred to her as a “moderate” — but he did not formally introduce her.
A mormon president? pawshaw
