Ann Coulter Refers to John Edwards as a 'Faggot'. Howard Dean Demands Apology

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." Members of the audience seemed startled, some laughed and applauded.

OK, Ann went over the top and should apologize; no, the Republicans should not apologize for her, unless of course the Democrats are going to apologize for the daily slurs about President Bush ("murderer" for example) coming from folks like Cindy Sheehan etc... or for the expressions of sadness the other day when a suicide bomber failed to hit VP Cheney in Afghanistan. Lots of ugliness to go around, but Ann should apologize non-the-less.
Here's the tape:


  1. It would be nice if the news media stopped giving Ann a platform, so that she'd have to join other vile bigots like Malkin on HotAir instead to get her message out.

  2. Maher's point was that Cheney should die. Coulter's point was that that the word 'faggot' incites demands for rehab.

    Coulter has a history of saying over-the-top things to make larger points. Like her attack on the 9/11 Jersery widows which was really an attack on untouchable liberal champions of victimhood.

    She's not going to apologize because then that would render her point...pointless.
