Will all those folks who were so upset about what John Edwards' bloggers had to say for themselves be equally put out by what Ann Coulter called Edwards today? Salon's Michael Scherer, reporting from the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, says Coulter told the crowd there: "I was going to have some comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate, John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you say the word faggot -- so I am kind of at an impasse."

One sign of the reaction from the right: The CPAC crowd responded -- albeit a little slowly -- with laughter and then applause.
