"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." - Ann Coulter this weekend at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference
I grow tired chronicling this woman's offensive blathering, but I am afraid she represents that wreck that I rubberneck while on the road of politics. Ann later said that it was just a joke and that she wouldn't insult gays by comparing them with Edwards.
A joke? A joke has to be funny, Ann. That wasn't even close. Part of the reason it isn't funny is that everything that comes from that woman comes from a dark place. She needs help. Maybe this is a cry for help? Why are conservatives encouraging her? If they loved her that would do an intervention -- being compassionate and all.
I believe every politician should be held up to scrutiny, parody, and a good, sound poking fun at. That is why I enjoy Jon Stewart, because he will make fun of any politician or member of the media regardless of what political stripe. Funny is funny.
Ann, you are not funny.
