Ann Coulter opened her legs--I mean mouth--for attention on Friday, and the media came running to fawn on her like a panting dog.

Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Coulter said, "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 'f*ggot,' so I -- so kind of an impasse, can't really talk about Edwards."

The remark engendered the intended bumper-bender between gay rights defenders and spokesperson menders.

But what the hysterics missed in her comments, was the chance to have fun with this has-been of the right. Coulter's heyday was over two years ago. She haunts the fringes of popular political talk shows and occassionally shows up in the headlines with one of her over-the-top comments, but that's it.

The real controversy stemming from her comments on Friday have less to do with her gay obsession, and more to do with her massive flip-flop.

In the wake of the Mark Foley sex-scandal, Ann Coulter closed ranks with Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity to defend the disgraced former Congressman from the vicious anti-gay liberals attacking him--at least that was their take.

Coulter is now gay-bashing the entire Democratic establishment with renewed vigor, highlighting the contrast between her sentiments for gay pedophile Republicans and Democrats--all of whom are gay to Coulter.

Is it safe to say that Ann Coulter assumes a different position for gay Republicans like Mary Cheney? Which position do you think Coulter would take for Mary?

And what's up with Coulter's gay obsession? They say that closeted gay people who hate homosexuals are always insisting that straight people are gay. They say that gay-haters are always pointing attention away from their own dirty little sexual secrets toward somebody else.

Coulter, who specializes in third-grade name-calling, has been out of the limelight since June of last year when MSNBC "Today" host Matt Lauer challenged her on national television for comments made in her best-selling book, "Godless."

Lauer raised objections over Coulter's characterization of the four New Jersey widows who gained national renoun for their highly public pressure on Congress to investigate 9/11 attacks after their husbands were killed in the World Trade Center towers.

Coulter called the women "witches" in her book and asked "How do we know their husbands weren't planning to divorce these harpies? Now that their shelf life is dwindling, they'd better hurry up and appear in Playboy."

Since then, Coulter's time in the national limelight has been the only thing dwindling. Perhaps she thought about shaving off her hair, but she settled on calling John Edwards a f*ggot.
