You think I'm surprised by what Ann Coulter said? I wouldn't expect less. I wouldn't even ask for an apology.

The fact of the matter is, she made these comments at major conservative political forum and received standing ovation.

Hey, aren't we on the same side of this debate? :)

Context is important, yes. What I meant is that Mr. Warrior is trying to dictate the terms of the debate to essentially change the subject. He wants to change the argument to one about people, their jobs, their intentions, etc when none of that really matters. What Coulter said would be equally offensive if uttered by Colbert or Stewart in reference to, say, male private part Cheney's daughter.

you just got your panties in a bunch...aye scoff at pundits ludicrous quips.

Louis Faracan received rip-roaring applause at a major political forum this week.  He has blaimed 9/11 on Jews and thinks that white people should all be "smited."  For want of a better term: these things just aren't a big deal.

Oh what forum? Do you know what the CPAC is and who attends?

Better yet, ask bluewarrior to copy paste some info from wiki and pretend like he knew.

good, you looked it up...now get the others on the same page.

good one BP...ann coulter?   :D :D :D  please.

looks like the people who were headed for genocide are now gaining empowerment.
there is something saving about taking out dictators before they become like hitler.

and how many people are murdered in newark this week?

Do you know what the NAACP is and who attends? or how bout the DNC?  we can name acronyms until the cows come home, and every one corresponds with a well-known, well-attended group from all over the political spectrum, and guess what, almost all of them have applauded something offensive.  People applaud, call it groupthink, call it sheepish, when someone is in front of a microphone, people applaud.  People even applauded Michael Richards' rant at first, its just human nature.  Its no real commentary, other than, they were making the "entertainment" (coulter) feel welcome.  And your belittling "do you even know" tone really is not needed.  A large part of my law school credentials is the fact that I have worked for prominant Republicans, and never has anyone from the Governor, down to the guy who gets the coffee for the mailroom worker EVER expressed any hateful biggotry condoning the use of the word "faggot" or otherwise.  You are looking for a wave of bigoted sentinment in the Republican party that simply is not there.

Well next time one of those organizations calls someone a faggot, or even tacitly endorses it, let me know and I'll be just as disgusted. We really need to debate whether or not homophobia aligns itself more with moral conservatives than other points on the political spectrum? Everyone around here might be wise enough to understand that Ann Coulter is little more than a talking head, but there are plenty of others out there that subscribe exactly to her absurd world view.

Point taken, but at the same time realize what im saying, homophobia is not the only "absurd word view."  Its not like all liberals are ivy league intellectuals and all Republicans are trailor trash mullet heads.  The NAACP wont applaud someone using the word faggot, (except Sharpton, and Jackson both have a distate for homosexuality), but they may applaud something equally intolerant.  I do not think homophobia is propogated by people like Coulter because people stupid enough to be really homophobic arent people who have ever of Ann Coulter.

go to a comedy club one day...

there ya gonna see and hear some things which you might find offensive...

the f.....t word and the n...word...sooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooo many times...

and many times it is directed toward a political figure or actor, for example...sometimes it is the audience members.

and sometimes you don't know where they are going with this...amazing!




and george carlin has said some things people find offensive...

aye love redd foxx...he was the real deal...some might call him offensive.

aye think some of you got swept up with an idea that ann coulter is on a pedestal.

ann coulter is a pundit...a shock jock. nothing more.


some things to ponder...maybe ann coulter is gay?   do gay people throw the f...word around?  does sandra bernhardt throw the f....word around?  was ann coulter just getting into dirty politics with edwards because she feels he did little to quell marcotte and was swiping at him the way his staff swiped at right wing shills...who knows?  perhaps she was offended by the edward's camp bigotry toward catholics and wanted to offend him back with her own bigoted comment...painting him as a left wing shill.  who really knows...more importantly...who really cares...;)

Or maybe it was the sudden departure from the normal grammatical mind @#!* that is your written word.

it is true...you do write more simply than me.  granted...easy aye am not. 

glad you looked it up, though...you like to challenge yourself and that is crafty. :)
