I think Ann Coulter has finally done it. She has pushed the envelope to a point where conservatives NEED to ditch her. Conservatives have been given the rap of being racist, biggoted, homophobes, which is so unfair. I bet admitted homophobe Tim Hardaway didn’t vote for a conservative…just a guess.
Racism, and homophobia knows no political party…it is on both sides of the aisle <cough> Sen. Sheets Byrd <cough>, but since liberals and their cohorts in the media have been successful in changing the conventional wisdom regarding conservatives it is our job to change it back. Ann Coulter has become a liability to the conservatives.
I used to like Coulter. I have one of her books. She would say things that no one else would dare say, she stood up to her critics, and she destroyed them. Is that what we want from a politician…no, but she is the one that does the dirty work the politicians can’t or won’t do. She has went over the line and the Right can’t legitimicize her any longer. It is guilt by association. I heard Hannity say in his interview with Michelle Malkin, that he hasn’t heard the comments and can only say that each person needs to be responsible for what they say, not what someone else says. That is true, but if you sit back and do nothing to correct or condemn the action it indicates you support the comments, or you are just too much of a wuss to take a stand. Either way it isn’t an appealing characteristic.
Ann Coulter is going the way of Pat Buchannan, and she should be shunned like he was too.
