See the little faggot with the earring and the makeup

Max Blumenthal of The Nation has a video report of the lowlights of the CPAC conference, including the Ann Coulter "Faggot" moment:



In light of Ann use of the word in her speech, and the resounding response from the crowd, it's clear that the word is acceptable to Republicans. I will use it from now on to refer to:

Andrew Sullivan


Mark Foley (R-FL)


David Dreier (R-CA)


State Senator Paul Koering (R-MN)


Log Cabin Republicans



Jeff Gannon




And last but not least, Mary Cheney


Faggots, every one of them.

After all, if Ann can say it, so can I.


Update: I got to thinking. Maybe it wasn't right to call gay Republicans faggots.
I mean, Ann used the word in reference to John Edwards. a straight married-with-children Democrat.

No, it wouldn't be right.

Like Ann, we should be able to call anyone we dislike faggots, including the Republican presidential candidates at the CPAC:


Rudy Giuliani


Mitt Romney

Mike Huckabee


Dick Cheney


Yep. Everyone a faggot.

In fact, here's the new party logo:
