RoadAnn Coulter on Mitt's bullying, Obama's same-sex marriage endorsement: “I haven’t read The Washington Post article, but I think it would be discriminatory if Mitt Romney did not play pranks on gays, just the way he plays them on non-gays. And I don’t know, back then, how many people were all that aware of it? But Mitt Romney is known for being a prankster. I don’t think this issue is going to help Obama much. It is just that it is not going to hurt him as much as it would hurt a non-half-black Democrat. I think this whole thing is a lot like — it’s such a sign of desperation.”

    I’m sorry, Ann. Your argument just falls to pieces when there isn’t a SHRED of evidence to prove Mittens maliciously targeted fellow straights for these kinds of “pranks.”

    (didn’t know assault was called a “prank” these days)

    I’m just waiting for Etch to pay off a former straight classmate to come forward with the story that he also was similarly bullied. And instead of people saying “wow, Mitt was DOUBLE the jerk” the Coulters of the world would say “SEE?! It wasn’t gay bullying in the first place!”

  2. wow says

    Mitt Romney is shaping up to be the perfect anti gay candidate. Not only is he for taking away our rights, he has also personally bullied a gay person, fired one, and we now find out employs like minded bigots who find joy in tormenting transgendered people. What else can he do to show his contempt?

  3. IAN F says

    Is John Travolta becoming the new Tiger Woods? What will the final tally be?

    I havent heard them all yet but the new Adam Lambert album sounds much netter than the last one. But why does his album get buried in the news roundup and Madonna’s every release was featured? Weather or not you like the guy, he is the only mainstream pop guy out there with a shot to break radio (while out), so I like to see how he’s doing.

    The song featuring Sam Sparrow is great. Two gays for the price of one. Has that ever happened before? I love Sam and his new songs too.

    We should be aware by now of what we are facing in this over-mighty Prince.
    It seems to me like a watershed moment for gay rights……..either we go forward with Obamaand progress or fight a rear guard war against the extreme Righttrying to take away everything we have achieved and turning us into second class citizens with the prospect of the Right being in control of SCOTUS for a generation.

    Whoa, anyone else think the guys in that ‘New Normal’ pic actually look really…hot?

  6. Randy says

    I find it hard to believe anyone cares what Ann Coulter says… her act is so old.

  7. Michaelandfred says

    Coulter makes me want to stick a fork in my eye every time a read a quote from her.

  8. MarkUs says

    Manchin there wouldn’t even say if he voted for Obama on Tuesday. Maybe he was part of the 40 percent of Democrats in West Virginia (it’s a closed primary) who voted for the convicted felon in prison instead.

  9. mark says

    Its more like deperation that this woman is even asked a question. Or for that matter even listened to.

  10. jexer says

    Sounds like Ann needs an involuntary hair-cut. Then again, her trademark hair is probably a wig and just as dishonest as the rest of her.

    Speaking of hair, Taylor Kitsch is smokin’ hot when he has long hair–and completely non-descript when he cuts it off.

    Correction, I think you meant: Coulter makes me want to stick a fork in HER eye every time I read a quote from her.

  13. John in Iowa says

    I’m very disappointed that Andy thinks any of his non-brain-dead followers care one iota what Ann Coulter says. She is no more than a media whore, and Andy is only enabling her by posting her only-for-shock rantings and insulting his followers by doing so.

  14. Terry says

    I’d really like to go to my favorite websites and not be confronted by the latest mindless droolings from Ann Coulter. If I wanted to read her crapola, I could go to Fox News.

  15. SteveXS says

    Eric Fehrnstrom, Romney’s #1 guy. Has anybody taken a careful close look? It’s just instinct but he really, really, really seems like one of those anti-democratic Log Cabin Republicans who believe in equality for themselves and nobody else. You know, the kind who would out somebody in order to throw the scent off himself.
