Sue Myrick's Shrine to Ann Coulter

Probably not many people know that Sue Myrick has a blog, maybe because it hasn't been updated since 2005. The blog was started in March 2004 and has a total of 6 entries. It is linked directly from the website for Sue Myrick for Congress 2008

The 5th entry in February 2005, but still on the front page, reads:

Ann Coulter
Join Sue Myrick For A
Salute to Leadership

With Speical Guest Ann Coulter

Ann is without peer. Personally Sue, I love the company you keep!

reads one of the comments to the post which remains bronzed on Myrick's blog front page until now, as seen below the fold:

Check out the comments and the praise heaped on Coulter.

Sad Sue

She's got a lot of backpedaling to do. Just like she did on term-limiting herself.

Bad company. Bad character. Bad judgment.

Good find.

Read this the other day

from the Daily Dish,

I'm not going to breathe more oxygen into this story except to say a couple of things that need saying. Coulter has an actual argument in self-defense and it's worth addressing. Her argument is that it was a joke and that since it was directed at a straight man, it wasn't homophobic. It was, in her words, a "school-yard taunt," directed at a straight man, meaning a "wuss" and a "sissy". Why would gays care? She is "pro-gay," after all. Apart from backing a party that wants to strip gay couples of all legal rights by amending the federal constitution, kick them out of the military where they are putting their lives on the line, put them into "reparative therapy" to "cure" them, keep it legal to fire them in many states, and refusing to include them in hate crime laws, Coulter is very pro-gay. As evidence of how pro-gay she is, check out all the gay men and women in America now defending her.....She's absolutely right that this is absurd and funny and an example of p.c. insanity. She could have made a joke about that - a better one, to be sure - but a joke. But she didn't just do that. She added to the joke a slur: "John Edwards is a faggot." That's why people gasped and then laughed and clapped so heartily. I was in the room, so I felt the atmosphere personally. It was an ugly atmosphere, designed to make any gay man or woman in the room feel marginalized and despised. To put it simply, either conservatism is happy to be associated with that atmosphere, or it isn't. I think the response so far suggests that the conservative elites don't want to go there, but the base has already been there for a very long time.

It's just titled, "Faggot".

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

We need a survey

To find out how many people who read here are veterans. Don't we?

I have the feeling there are quite a few of us.

Make the Poll

Viet Nam era vet here

Go Air Force!

Sue's Blogging Schedule

March 3, 2004 (starts blog; promises that you can "llok here for the latest breaking Sue news")
March 10, 2004 (inconsequential information regarding website updates)
March 11, 2004 (promotes her television show/advertisement)
March 13, 2004 (plagiarizes AP story)
February 21, 2005
(Promotes Ann Coulter)
April 17, 2005 (promotes Sara Evans meeting)

Sounds like Sue did not have much "breaking news" over these past 3 years.

Another Air Force Vet

I've been lurking here for a couple of months but never commented before.

That is a great idea.

I'm constantly amazed at how many veterans there are here (I'm not one, BTW). Certainly puts to bed the idea that the Republic is the party of the military.

Do it A.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.
-me

Good Idea

I'd be happy to help.

Go AF...Thanks for De-Lurking Lee

you should just join in, the more voices the better! (especially AF..heh)

Thanks

Good to see I'm not the only female vet here.

I'm another one.

WAC, 1961-64.

one of my uncles

used to live in Colorado Springs. Every time he drove past the AFA he would tell my cousins they were going there because that was the only college he could afford.

PS- Go Army Beat Navy. (does being the son and double grandson of veterans count?)

Draft Brad Miller -- NC Sen ActBlue :::Petition

"Keep the Faith"

that's funny

one of my uncles lives there, too. And he was always pressuring the crap out of me to go there, even though I was not cut out at all for such endeavors. I admired the service academies, but I knew they'd kick me out in about a week.

War is over if you want it.

Only as a dependent

:P
