Welcome to “Who’s More Pathetic?” The quiz sensation that’s sweepin’ the nation.
The rules: We quote two sniping politicians, and you decide, without regard to partisan bias, Who’s More Pathetic?
Conservative vixen/villainess/potty-mouth Ann Coulter
Democratic pretender and soulless gazillionaire trial lawyer John Edwards.
Coulter was quoted as referring indirectly to Edwards as a “faggot” at the CPAC conference*.
Edwards responded by saying that people who say things that hurt his feelings should be denied the right to free speech*.
YOU DECIDE: Who’s More Pathetic?
* “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 … can’t really talk about Edwards.” Friday March 2nd 2007
* “we can’t stand silently by and allow this kind of language to be used.” Sunday March 5th 2007
My Take: (not to be used for official scoring purposes or assistance in wagering):
Not even close. Ann Coulter is an insignificant name-caller. Oooooh, she used a word we’re not allowed to use anymore . . .
John Edwards wants to be President of the United States, and he’s already willing to jettison the 1st Amendment. Add in the factor that Edwards, in his anger and pain, managed to use this incident as a fundraising tool.
Edwards – definitely more pathetic.
