Ann Coulter once again made a fool of herself, this time at CPAC.
Seriously, someone needs to introduce a regulator between her mouth and whatever part of her brain is responsible for this kind of idiocy. She’s not a dumb person, she’s capable of introducing a cogent argument, but when she spouts off with another bit of vitriolic jackassery it undermines everything. What she said about Edwards was inexcusable, and reflects badly on everyone in the conservative movement.
Captain Ed put it best:
At some point, Republicans will need to get over their issues with homosexuality. Regardless of whether one believes it to be a choice or a hardwired response, it has little impact on anyone but the gay or lesbian person. We can argue that homosexuality doesn’t require legal protection, but not when we have our front-line activists referring to them as “faggots” or worse. That indicates a disturbing level of animosity rather than a true desire to allow people the same rights and protections regardless of their lifestyles.
There’s a difference between disapproving of homosexual for political, social, and moral reasons and being a bigot. Ms. Coulter made a statement that paints her as a bigot, and it is categorically unacceptable. Her comments were stupid, inflammatory, and most of all against the Christian faith which she claims to profess.
We don’t need the likes of her giving the rest of us a bad name.
