Ann Coulter is a bitch...
What? You wanted a more creative title. I prefer simple and to the point.
As most people probably already know, Ann Coulter took her crackpipe conservatism one step further by calling John Edwards a faggot. If you don't believe me, Kleinheider found it on YouTube.
I've come to expect ridiculousness from Ann Coulter, but who in the hell were the people in the background roaring their approval. Is this really the Republican party? Has it come to this?
John Edwards sent out an e-mail today calling for Democrats to rally around him in his effort to battle radical conservo-fascism (I coined it... Eat it Colbert!):
Did you hear about Anne Coulter's speech this afternoon attacking John? A friend just forwarded me the video and it's one of the worst moments in American politics I've seen.Coulter Cash? I love it... sure its a lame fundraising ploy but the ability to make light of Coulter's slurs and use it to your advantage is great politics.
I can't bring myself to even repeat her comments. Her shameless display of bigotry is so outrageous you actually have to see for yourself to believe it.
This is just a taste of the filth that the right-wing machine is gearing up to throw at us. And now that it's begun, we have a choice: Do we sit back, or do we fight back?
I say we fight. Help us raise $100,000 in "Coulter Cash" this week to show every would-be Republican mouthpiece that their bigoted attacks will not intimidate this campaign. I just threw in 100 bucks. Will you join me? Just click here.
Coulter's attack was no accident. It happened on national television at one of the year's biggest conservative conferences. Dick Cheney and most of the Republican candidates were in the audience. She was even introduced by Mitt Romney.
John was singled out for a personal attack because the Republican establishment knows he poses the greatest threat to their power. Since they have nothing real to use against him, Coulter's resorting to the classic right-wing strategy of riling up hate to smear a progressive champion. And the Republican attack dogs will keep playing this despicable trick as long as they think it works.
But this time, you and I can change the game.
If we can raise $100,000 in "Coulter Cash" this week, we can show that bigotry will only backfire on those who use it. John is not the first progressive leader to face this kind of slime, but together, we can make sure he is one of the last.
Thanks Ann... it seems you're good for something afterall...
