Ann Coulter on Democrat Gay-Bashing...

Ann Coulter Aggressively Takes on Democrat Response to Mark FoleyNoel Sheppard with NewsBusters has the story...
Wilson:I looked back at a story I did this week in which I looked back at the scandals we’ve seen in the past, and I was struck about 19 I think it’s 83 and the previous page scandal. You had a Democrat, a guy by the name of Gerry Studds, who, uh, was censured for having sex with an underage page. You had a Republican that was censured…the name escapes me at the moment…Dan Crane, who was censured for having sex with an underage female page. And, uh, neither one of them, though, was kicked out of office and asked to resign. And, back then, I believe it was the Democrats that were in control of the House of Representatives.

Coulter: Well, yes, yes that’s right. Though, even in that case, there was a striking difference between how Democrats respond and how Republicans respond. I mean, as has been I think well-discussed over the past week, um, Gerry Studds was defended in the Washington Post, and his hometown newspapers as being the victim of a witch-hunt. He came out and denounced anyone questioning his homosexual relationship with an underage page whom he took on a trip to Portugal. Um, when the House censured both of them, you know, Dan Crane hung his head in, in, in embarrassment. He apologized. He apologized to everyone. When he ran for reelection, he was defeated. Gerry Studds turned his back defiantly on the House. He got three standing ovations. When he ran for reelection, he was reelected over and over and over again, which is why you feel like you’ve entered this Bizarro world with the Democrats engaging in gay-bashing far beyond what, what you would ever find a Republican doing. But we don’t want them to get married, that doesn’t mean we hate them.
