    Of conservativism and "gays," she said, "The gay argument is: 'Why do conservatives act like our sin is worth than any other sin? Did none of you have pre-marital sex?'"

    Coulter agreed, saying, "I think there is a little extra animosity directed against gays." She then said that the conservative counter-argument is, "We don't go to CPAC and have a group, Republicans Against Tithing."

    Her response: It's different being gay. You have all of culture telling gays, 'You should be liberal. ... This is the left trying to co-opt gays.

    "For now, I would like for gays to just be part of conservatives the way women are and blacks are -- without a special designation," she told the crowd. "We don't need the special designation for it.

    "There is something to being gay apart from the sodomy. That's what I want their new motto to be, by the way: Gays Without the Sodomy! This is why I get along with the gays. We like the same music, the same cocktails -- often the same men. There is a whole culture to it.

    She went on to say, "I know chaste gays. I honor them. ... But, I can't tell you that -- that -- that I'm without sin -- as none of us are."

    Not exactly resolving the "sin" issue, though, she concluded, "The left is trying to co-opt gays, and I don't think we should let them. I think they should be on our side. We're for low taxes. We're against crime. We're against the terrorists who want to kill gays.

    "Gays are natural conservatives."

    Gays without the Sodomy. Classic Coulter...in its lack of logic. (Unless she's referring to the Sodomy with a capital S as all her liberal critics)

    A chaste gay is the only thing she can honor? And is she implying that any nonchaste gay is committing a sin?

    "The gay argument is: 'Why do conservatives act like our sin is worth than any other sin? Did none of you have pre-marital sex?'" No, the question for most gays is not sin when they think of their sexuality, and if it unfortunately is what they're thinking of, it's not a healthy instinct instilled by their upbringing among homophobic conservative parents.

    She seems to imagine that all gays "like the same music, the same cocktails -- often the same men." "We're for low taxes. We're against crime. We're against the terrorists who want to kill gays." Nice stereotype of upper-middle class white gay men being representative of all gay men. For one, I don't like cocktails, and I doubt the majority of gays likes the music I do.

    This is one sick woman.

    "...apart from the sodomy". Way to plant a vision in you're audiences mind. She demonizes gays while trying to embrace them at the same time. What a twit.
    Now I'm picturing Ann Coulter having sex. Ugh. It's probably like fucking a bucket full of glass shards.

    From the OP
    And she said, first, that she "talked them [GOProud] into dropping the gay marriage plank." There was muted applause for this line. (A message left seeking comment on this point from GOProud was not immediately returned.)
    ...
    To the left: "You just made up this gay marriage thing."

    Ohhhhh, c'mon Christian. The gays will be there next year at CPAC, and probably in bigger numbers than ever -- you just wait and see icon_wink.gif


    As for Ann Coulter, I actually appreciated what she said. I think there is this myth out there that Republicans hate the gays, and I just think that's a bunch of bunk. I am not blinded to the regrettable faction within the party that is anti-gay, but I do not believe that this sentiment consumes the entire party. I think if Ann Coulter can be a friend of the gays, anything is possible.

    Ann Coulture, as crazy as she sounds, is probably the BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO GAY PEOPLE. She is so adamantly far-right and admitting to be born-again Christian that her views are aligned with the right wing virtually 100%. If her views are aligned with theirs to near perfection, if she introduces a concept like being pro-gay, being gay friendly, accepting the gays, then they WILL LISTEN to her and change. They will not however listen to and change their views if a bunch of liberals suggest the same thing about gays.

    It's as if someone is speaking at a KKK rally and says "hey guys I'm totally pro-white and have been but let's not keep hating on the blacks. That's what THE OUTSIDERS want us to do. Let's stop ok."

    She's actually quite brilliant in manipulating conservatives into thinking that to hate the gays is a liberal agenda, and therefore they should not hate the gays. I really think she could be a plant from a gay mastermind to get conservatives to become more gay friendly.

    You clearly don't get Ann Coulter's schtick. She has made a fortune, and has had god knows how many NY Times best selling books off of this same schtick. She is a comedian of sorts dressed in a born again right wing persona and slinging daggers at the left. She loves to shock -- that's part of her whole act.

    Hey, don't diss bile, which is the body's natural way of getting rid of cholesterol. Imagine Coulter without her gallbladder. icon_lol.gif

    As much as I will still be critical of her, this is an interesting observation. Perhaps she will be used in spite of herself.

    Direct quotes from the head of CPAC's organizer, the American Conservative Union, is not "gossip."

    He said "it will be difficult working with goproud", or something to that effect. He never said they are barred from attending next year. So yes, it is gossip. webster made a categorical statement but it was misleading.

    It was World Net Daily that made that statement: http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=263673

    The rest of them have just been parroting this report as fact... I have yet to find corroborating reports on this. It should however be very much newsworthy if true especially considering it gives the press more opportunities to paint CPAC as a bunch of irrelevant fogies.

    Yes, you're right, WND did make the statement, but webster didn't really take the time to find out if it was true or not.

    Oh, I can take a joke. I just don't find her attempts at humor all that funny. The thing is, I don't think the audience to whom she was speaking thinks of sodomy as a basis for humor. Maybe I would have appreciated it more if she had mentioned blow jobs or butt sexx.
