    Talk about hitting the nail on the head. What happened to the thick-skinned conservatives who railed against the PC culture because it was only words?

    As the piece suggests, it's a corny play on words. Big deal. It's nothing compared to the Ann Coulterites calling everyone they don't like "fags."

    And heaven forbid we criticize this adminstration's spoon-fed spin. Who needs democracy, anyways?

    You do declare? That's mighty white of you, Ace. You sure you're not Obama?

    That's not even the worst of Coulter's hate-speak. Better (though only slightly) to be called "fag" than "traitor." The loose way that term gets thrown out is disgusting.

    Yes, the so called hardass righties who are anti-PC and so tough in spewing it out act like the biggest bunch of pussies when they're criticized.

    I don't like umbrage. However, I do like Umbros.

    I used to own a pair of Umbrage shorts when they were all the rage

    So when you are only partly dissed by someone, you should take penumbrage.
