National Journal:Don't Blame Romney For Coulter

"I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word ‘faggot,’ so I — so kind of an impasse, can’t really talk about Edwards," Ann Coulter said today at CPAC.

That is pretty bad. You have a prominent Republican activist, at the biggest conservative gathering place to nominally give an endorsement speech to Mitt Romney. She in her speech calls John Edwards a 'faggot' in front of cheering fans.

Hotline believes it's unfair to blame Romney at all though.
Next, there'll be calls for Republican candidates to disassociate themselves from Coulter's remarks. Unfairly, ex-MA Gov. Mitt Romney faces the biggest burden: he spoke right before Coulter and praised her... not knowing what she planned to say.

What a load of codswallop. Romney praised her knowing that she has called for the death of John Paul Stevens, wishing Tim McVeigh blew up the NY Times instead. She has suggested that we should forcibly convert muslims on pain of death to christianity. She has joked about being an anthrax mailer. Everybody knows more highly offensive things she has vomited out of her 78 pound frame.

So Romney should get a pass here according to the MSM because heaven's to Betsy he didn't know the word 'faggot' was coming out of her mouth. Please. Shoot me now.
