Ann Coulter has responded to those denouncing her calling John Edwards a "faggot" by saying that it was just a joke:
"C'mon, it was a joke. I would never insult gays by suggesting that they are like John Edwards. That would be mean."
Oh? Imagine if Coulter, instead of directing her little "joke" against Edwards had decided to attach Barak Obama instead and said, "I wanted to talk about Barak Obama, but it turns out that you have to go into rehab if you use the word "nigger"..."
Or perhaps, "I wanted to talk about Joe Liberman, but it turns out that you have to go into rehab if you use the word "kike"..."
Yeah, Ann, you're a laugh riot.
