ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Coulter

Sorry for the lack of posting - I'm out of the country and it's difficult to find time given the work schedule. Of course, this is a team blog, so readers shouldn't really notice a difference, right?

Wanted to throw my two cents on the Ann Coulter story.

Ann Coulter is a bomb-thrower. Sure, she's no Amanda Marcotte or some deranged DUer, but she has a habit of saying really stupid things. I recall when Ann was brought on to the NRO staff and the trainwreck that that turned out to be.

Ann can be entertaining - when she's making a serious point and not trying to get laughs. But too often she is abrasive and over the top and fails to make a point. I don't know what her point was with the comment about Edwards - he certainly isn't gay and, even if he was, how is that relevant?

From OliverWillis:

I'm eternally pessimistic but it looks like the line is being drawn in the sand.
At least three major companies want their ads pulled from Ann Coulter's Web site, following customer complaints about the right-wing commentator referring to Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards as a "faggot.

Of course, this just means that Ann will be the next Grammy award winner for her soon to be released album, Shut Up & Write. I am surprised that Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins aren't protesting the move of these three companies and calling attention to the "chill wind" that is blowing across America.

I hope that Ann isn't invited to speak at any more events in which GOP presidential candidates are present.
