How low can they go?
Riffing on the Coulter/Edwards flap, we read
this by Atlas Shrugs: (emp + color in original) (h/t Wolcott
As far as Coulter's out of the left field "faggot" remark goes -- it may have been a poor choice of words but further Atlas investigation reveals John Edwards campaign has a mostly gay staff and rumors about his sexuality are rife. Just for knowing.
The fact is if there is any true to these rumors, that perhaps Edwards is gay, shouldn't we know that? Shouldn't we know if this man is deceiving his wife, children, country and living a lie? Shouldn't we know if a man that represents the party that celebrates gay rights is so ashamed of it, he lives a ginormous lie? Regardless of your position on gay marriage, regardless of whether you celebrate or merely tolerate the gay lifestyle, we ought to know if John Edwards is a liar and a hypocrite.
Never, never underestimate the depths to which the right will go in order to attack someone.
What about the claims that Bill Maher thinks things would be better if Dick Cheney was dead. Newsmax.com ran this story. Is what Bill said as bad as Coulter's remark? Worse? No comparison at all?
So, e. nonee moose, that would be "no comparison at all" since I'm sure you're keeping track.
