Gay slur at conservative conference draws flak
Published: Monday March 5, 2007

A popular commentator's gay slur at a key political conservative conference in Washington drew strong protests Sunday as Republicans rushed to distance themselves.

Ann Coulter, an outspoken conservative pundit widely seen in print, on television and radio, suggested Friday that Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards was a "faggot" -- a derogatory term for a homosexual -- at the annual meeting in Washington of the influential Conservative Political Action Conference.

"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,'" Coulter said to howls and applause.

"It would be better, in my opinion, to not have a CPAC at all than to have one that presents conservatism as a hostile, people-hating ideology," said Amy Ridenour, whose National Center for Public Policy Research was one of the paying sponsors for CPAC.

"We conservatives have enough trouble overcoming the false things that are said about us without paying for a platform upon which we shoot ourselves annually in the foot," she wrote on her weblog Sunday.

1. Easy to say now for appearances.
Let's see if they follow through with it one year from now.

3. Yes, we don't want people to "mistakenly" think conservatism is a hostile, people-hating ideology
"We want to appear to be the HAPPY kind of fascists!"

5. How the hell did that woman ever get to be a pundit to begin with?
How the hell did that woman ever get to be a pundit (or spokeswoman, or whatever the hell she is) to begin with? What she does isn't difficult and doesn't require any real talent. I could go on TV and say idiotic things too, but no one will pay me to do it.

Did she sleep with somebody? :puke:
