Conservative women are supposed to dress like nuns? Wow. How ignorant can you get?
That would be me saying all liberals wear tiedye shirts and dress like cheech and chong.
No, I was attempting to point out her hypocrisy. Evidently I did a poor job of it.
The point I was trying to get across was that she preaches "conservative values" and conservative talking points yet acts the opposite.
In case anyone wants to see the video where she says it, you can click here.
For those who don't want to watch the video, here are her own words:
Oh, and I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate, John Edwards. But it turns out that you have to go into
rehab if you use the word "faggot," so I'm -- so I'm kind of at an impasse, can't really talk about Edwards. So I think I'll just conclude here
and take your questions.
Here are some other choice homosexual accusations by Coulter, also from ThinkProgress.org:
Previously, Coulter has put “even money” on Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) “[c]oming out of the closet,” said Bill Clinton shows “some level of
latent homosexuality,” and called Vice President Al Gore a “total fag.”
Seems like Ann has a lot of hate for homosexuals. Last time a checked, when a right winger (especially the really loud ones like Ann) sprout anti-gay
remarks it usually results in them coming out of the closet themselves eventually. Either on purpose or in a scandal.
For those interested, here is what Romney said:
I'm happy to learn also that after you hear me, you're going to from Ann Coulter. That is a good thing. Oh yeah! Now, I think it's always very
important to get the views of moderates. Now, I know there are a few here from the mainstream media, and they're probably surprised that we're here
in these record numbers.
Romney did not introduce her, he merely mentioned that she was speaking. The "Oh yeah!" part was pandering to the crowd like any MC would. Obviously
the right oriented members in attendance would be interested in what she had to say, Romney was simply trying to get the crowd excited.
I wouldn't hold this against him. However, he does seem like a pretty stand up guy. He needs to make sure he keeps tabs on who he keeps company with.
Romney could have broad appeal to both sides, as long as he's not pigeon holed as being a "crazy right winger" by the left. However, I see him
having a harder time getting past his own members for the simple fact he's Mormon. As if to be President you have to be a Southern Evangelical or
something. Evidently, being Christian isn't enough, you have to be a certain type of Christian.
