It’s a race with Feministe to see who posts something first on the ‘Ann Coulter calls John Edwards a faggot’ scandal!
Above: Coulter’s appearance nothing like that of unskilled drag queen
On your mark… Get set…
During her presentation to today’s Conservative Political Action Convention, political pundit Ann Coulter used the word “faggot” to describe a Democratic presidential candidate. Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean today condemned her remarks and called on the Republican presidential contenders to denounce them.
Dean issued the following statement:
“There is no place in political discourse for this kind of hate-filled and bigoted comments. While Democrats and Republicans may disagree on the issues, we should all be able to agree that this kind of vile rhetoric is out of bounds. The American people want a serious, thoughtful debate of the issues. Republicans–including the Republican presidential candidates who shared the podium with Ann Coulter today–should denounce her hateful remarks.”
Ann Coulter, Remarks to CPAC Conference, 2/2/07: “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 â€” so kind of an impasse, can’t really talk about Edwards.”
