You Didn’t Have to Call Him a Faggot, Ann

Ann Coulter’s characterisation of John Edwards as a "faggot" was unnecessary.  If she really wanted to insult him, she could have pointed out that he didn’t go to an Ivy League school, as we did earlier this yearThis is what she did with Harriet Miers two years ago.

Calling people "faggots" was an old favourite insult back in prep school days–and not necessarily to people who were thought homosexual either.   It’s one of those that had to be dealt with in the writing of The Ten Weeks.  (This Coral Gables blogger was up to pretty much the same thing.  Maybe it’s a South Florida trait.)
