You read.

Since everyone was up in arms over some ridiculous comments by anonymous commenter's at HuffPo, will the same people lose their shit due to Ann Coulter calling John Edwards a "faggot" at the biggest conservative event of the year?

Speaking personally, I know a fairly large amount of people who have social positions that are a good deal to the right of mine, but NONE of them, not one, would be proud to be associated with the likes of truly odious Ann Coulter. In fact, I would guess most of them are embarrassed by her. It's one thing for liberals and conservatives to disagree on issues and policy; reasonable people can, after all, disagree and most people are fairly reasonable. But the kind of venom that spews forth out of Coulter's mouth is something all together different and it will be telling to watch the media reaction to this situation.
