DISPATCHED FROM THE CROSSROADS, AT THE intersection OF politicians and idiots

Ann Coulter Shows True Conservative Values

I made my first contribution of the 2008 political season — to John Edwards.

I doubt that I'll vote for John Edwards, but I needed to express outrage at Ann Coulter. From the Edwards site:

Friday afternoon, Republican mouthpiece Ann Coulter brought hate-speech politics to a new low.

This video shows Coulter addressing the American Conservative Union's Political Action Conference, March, 2, 2007 in Washington, D.C. We must show that inflaming prejudice to attack progressive leaders will only backfire. Can you help us raise $100,000 in "Coulter Cash" this week to keep this campaign charging ahead and fight back against the politics of bigotry?

I think Republicans need to start hurting when they sponsor this ugly person. Giulliani, McCain, Romney, etc. need to start refusing to appear on the same dias as she. The "family values people" need to distance themselves from someone who looks like she could't find her way home from a cocktail party and who can't think up a decent joke so resorts to name-calling.
