But That Was Different


Andrew Sullivan explains why it was "high camp" to call Al Gore a "total fag", but wrong to call John Edwards a "faggot":
My only response to my reader is that seeing her live in front of a young, cheering crowd made me feel a lot less complacent. Being a gay man in a crowd that cheers a woman denigrating someone for being a "faggot" is an educative experience.
That unfortunate laugh track....
Seeing college kids line up to worship her tore me up. These kids deserve better. They're young and smart enough to be interested in conservatism - and this is what they are getting?
They're young, of average intelligence as compared to their peers, and they're interested in Ann Coulter. The rest is wishful thinking.
