Counter Coulter

You know things are getting a little tough on the right wing when even Ann Coulter is kicked out of the Kool Kidz table.

Conservative website WND has dropped Ann Coulter as the keynote speaker at its upcoming conference over her plan to speak to a group in favor of gay rights.

WND says that Coulter’s decision to speak at Homocon, an event sponsored by a gay Republican organization called GOProud, disqualifies her from speaking at their “Taking America Back National Conference.”

“Ultimately, as a matter of principle, it would not make sense for us to have Ann speak to a conference about ‘taking America back’ when she clearly does not recognize that the ideals to be espoused there simply do not include the radical and very ‘unconservative’ agenda represented by GOProud,” WND editor and CEO Joseph Farah said.

Ms. Coulter replied that she was doing the Homocon gig for the money, not because she gives a rat’s ass about the rights of conservative people who happen to be gay.

This proves a couple of things. First, WND is still a bunch of raving homophobic bigots and tightasses. Second, Ann Coulter will do anything for a buck.
