Trashcan Annie really stepped in it this time, newspapers cancelling her column


Seems since Coultergeist’s latests flame more newspapers are dropping her like a hot rock. at least three newspapers — The Lancaster New Era (Pennsylvania), The Oakland Press (Michigan), and The Mountain Press (Sevierville, Tennessee) — have decided to drop Coulter’s nationally syndicated column from their opinion pages, according to an article on Editor & Publisher‘s website.

Also, it should be noted that in July 2006, the NYT Post stated Trashcan Annie was syndicated in around 100 newspapers..MediaMatters now has a comprehensive list..and its no where near 100 anymore. LMAO..its 44 newspapers now.

Don’t you just love it? Not to mention the conservative bloggers have published a letter which you can read here, but let me print it for ya:

An Open Letter to CPAC Sponsors and Organizers Regarding Ann Coulter

Conservatism treats humans as they are, as moral creatures possessing rational minds and capable of discerning right from wrong. There comes a time when we must speak out in the defense of the conservative movement, and make a stand for political civility. This is one of those times.

Ann Coulter used to serve the movement well. She was telegenic, intelligent, and witty. She was also fearless: saying provocative things to inspire deeper thought and cutting through the haze of competing information has its uses. But Coulter’s fearlessness has become an addiction to shock value. She draws attention to herself, rather than placing the spotlight on conservative ideas.

At the Conservative Political Action Conference in 2006, Coulter referred to Iranians as “ragheads.” She is one of the most prominent women in the conservative movement; for her to employ such reckless language reinforces the stereotype that conservatives are racists.

At CPAC 2007 Coulter decided to turn up the volume by referring to John Edwards, a former U.S. Senator and current Presidential candidate, as a “faggot.” Such offensive language–and the cavalier attitude that lies behind it–is intolerable to us. It may be tolerated on liberal websites but not at the nation’s premier conservative gathering.

The legendary conservative thinker Richard Weaver wrote a book entitled Ideas Have Consequences. Rush Limbaugh has said again and again that “words mean things.” Both phrases apply to Coulter’s awful remarks.

Coulter’s vicious word choice tells the world she care little about the feelings of a large group that often feels marginalized and despised. Her word choice forces conservatives to waste time defending themselves against charges of homophobia rather than advancing conservative ideas.

Within a day of Coulter’s remark John Edwards sent out a fundraising email that used Coulter’s words to raise money for his faltering campaign. She is helping those she claims to oppose. How does that advance any of the causes we hold dear?

Denouncing Coulter is not enough. After her “raghead” remark in 2006 she took some heat. Yet she did not grow and learn. We should have been more forceful. This year she used a gay slur. What is next? If Senator Barack Obama is the de facto Democratic Presidential nominee next year will Coulter feel free to use a racial slur? How does that help conservatism?

One of the points of CPAC is the opportunity it gives college students to meet other young conservatives and learn from our leaders. Unlike on their campuses—where they often feel alone—at CPAC they know they are part of a vibrant political movement. What example is set when one highlight of the conference is finding out what shocking phrase will emerge from Ann Coulter’s mouth? How can we teach young conservatives to fight for their principles with civility and respect when Ann Coulter is allowed to address the conference? Coulter’s invective is a sign of weak thinking and unprincipled politicking.

CPAC sponsors, the Age of Ann has passed. We, the undersigned, request that CPAC speaking invitations no longer be extended to Ann Coulter. Her words and attitude simply do too much damage.

About Dusty, hells most vocal bitch

  1. I love it when Lions eat their young.

  2. I love that the decent conservative bloggers have grown weary of this bitch. She thinks she is the news..and that means she isn’t a journalist..she is a female Rush Limbaugh..meaning she is nothing but a mindless troll looking for attention.

  3. I kind of want CPAC to keep the bitch. A liability to them is an asset to the rest of the world.

  4. Lazy..this bitch has become the story and therefore is a worthless hag. Even Pundits serve a purpose, but she isn’t even that anymoreBut that said..freedom of speech must be given to even the fuckwits among us.

  5. Puh-lease. These same right-wing authoritarians had no problem in the past with Crazy Annie’s babbling. I’m sure some of them giggled with glee as she “joked” about beating liberals with baseball bats, bombing the NY Times building, and killing a Supreme Court justice. If presidential candidates hadn’t been at CPAC, there would’ve been no stink in the media.Oh, and I am sure Edwards’ “Coulter Cash” drive didn’t make them feel much better.

  6. Her staunchest supporters won’t apologize for her. Her base is just getting smaller..thats a good thing.

  7. Notice they said she shouldn’t come because she causes too much damage, not because what she said was wrong.

  8. Poobie, also notice “they” said bad language is allowed on liberal websites..and not usually on neocon or con websites..LMAO..yeah right.

  9. Her base gets smaller, as does her brain. Nobody in the Green Mountain State takes her seriously, except for a couple of pathetic Rush-is-Right types.You think RIR, you’re gonna buy Tugboat Annie.What an ass.

  10. Her brain cells are dying faster than she makes them evidently..this is something we usually see in meth addicts.Annie is in good company.

  11. Did you hear about < HREF="http://www.pissedonpolitics.com/2007/03/blog_surfin.htm" REL="nofollow">Cpl. Matt Sanchez<>,the latest CPAC poster child? A 36 year old Marine Reservist in school at Columbia who got made fun of by anti-war achtivists?He made the rounds on O’Reilly and Hannity. I beleive he spoke at CPAC and met with Coulter. Malkin also rushed to his side.Guess what? He’s a former Gay Porn Star. A massive gay porn star.Ah, the family values…

  12. The 36 year old Cpl was also a gay hooker for many years and still has an active website for his “escort” services. But he says he is cough*straight*cough..
