Coulter @ CPAC: I would comment on John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word 'faggot.'  —  It's nice to see the conservatives at CPAC embrace and cheer on someone like Coultergeist.  She's really a beacon of responsible conservative commentary, no?
Bryan / Hot Air:
Thanks, Ann; Update: Audio added; Update: Video added  —  Ann Coulter is speaking at CPAC as I write.  As is typical, she gave a brief speech full of her usual witticisms, including a few brilliant attacks on Al Gore's green hypocrisy.  All was good.  Untill the last few seconds, when she launched into a joke about John Edwards.
Ed Morrissey / Captain's Quarters:
Coulter Said What?  —  Ann Coulter is speaking at the moment, and drawing a huge crowd — with longer lines than those for the Rudy Giuliani.  She's definitely one of the stars here at CPAC, and I listened to the audio stream for a bit while she opened her speech.
