Two days after a local Republican ex-State Senate candidate dropped a steaming pile of confusion between interpersonal civility and refined language by saying less cussing on the right side of the blogosphere amounts to greater civility on the right side of the blogosphere, right-wing drama queen Ann Coulter buried the pile and shuffled dust over it with comments about Democratic candidate John Edwards. Coulter called Edwards a "faggot" in the disparaging style that the word is often meant by the homophobic among us, and she did so to the ovations of the Conservative Political Action Conference on the same agenda with the 2008 Republican Party Presidential Candidates. Explain the civility Coulter's use of "faggot" for me please.
UPDATE: It appears that our one-time Republican candidate wants to have it both ways. First, He argues that the Conservative Political Action Conference is moderate as reflected in a straw poll. Then, ignoring his own comments about how conservatives are so much more civil than liberals and the fact that Ann Coulter was invited to throw her red meat to the Conference among the 2008 Republican candidates, he argues that Ms. Coulter is not popular with Republicans, based on his survey of--get this--blogs. Then he compares Ms. Coulter to Jesse Jackson, which--even with Rev. Jackson's faults--is a strained analogy when one considers Ms. Coulter's lack of civility.
