Ann Coulter is Wrong! John Edwards isn’t a faggot…

but Ted Haggard is!  Tackey, huh?  You bet. The dictionary definition of faggot is a bundle of sticks, twigs or tree branches.  Faggots were used to start the fires that burned heretics (a group that included gay men) at the stake. It’s a word that takes us back to the time of thumbscrews and witch trails.  So, yeah, it’s an offensive word.  Ann Coulter knows it’s offensive- being offensive is her stock in trade.  Does she believe that John Edwards is a faggot? That 9/11 widows are harpies? Or that the editors of the National Revieware girly boys? Of course not.  She says these things because no one ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public. She laughs all the way to the bank. Where’s H.L. Mencken when you need him?
