Ann Coulter, widely and severely criticized for her sophomoric, or just plain moronic, comments about John Edwards Friday at CPAC, is taking the criticism to heart we see.
Here's a post from her Web site.
"AMBULANCE CHASER GETS REAR-ENDED BY ANN COULTER
- I'm so ashamed, I can't stop laughing!"
And, from today's New York Times there's this:
"Ms. Coulter, asked for a reaction to the Republican criticism, said in an e-mail message: "C'mon, it was a joke. I would never insult gays by suggesting that they are like John Edwards. That would be mean."
Only three of the 10 or so Republican candidates have critcized Coulter, who called Edwards a "faggot" at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington.
The three - Rudy Giuliani, John McCain and Mitt Romney were quoted in today's Times.
"The comments were completely inappropriate and there should be no place for such name-calling in political debate."
McCain spokesman Brian Jones:
"The comments were wildly inappropriate." (McCain didn't attend CPAC).
Romney spokesman Kevin Madden:
“The comments were wildly inappropriate.”
Conservative columnist George Will waived off comment about Coulter on ABC's This Week this morning, saying "the less said about her" as his voice trailed off.
At the conference Coulter said she would likely support Romney in '08. Lucky him!
GINGRICH BLAMING KATRINA VICTIMS?
Newt Gingrich spoke at CPAC on Saturday while the Coulter flap was still in the air, so his comments on the Hurricane Katrina debacle went mostly unnoticed.
Quoted on Blog For Our Future, Gingrich seems to be blaming everyone for the Katrina mess, including the victims.
"Now can you have the mess we have in New Orleans, and not have had deep investigations of the federal government, the state government, the city government, and the failure of citizenship in the Ninth Ward, where 22,000 people were so uneducated and so unprepared, they literally couldn't get out of the way of a hurricane."
If you listen to the recording provided by the site, Gingrich's voice is muffled by a technical glitch after the word "unprepared" so we can't vouch for the accuracy of the rest of the quote. click here.
CPAC organizers called the weekend event "a huge success."
Gee. Do you really think so?
