I'm glad to hear it

CNN - Companies to pull ads from Coulter's Web site
At least three major companies want their ads pulled from Ann Coulter's Web site, following customer complaints about the right-wing commentator referring to Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards as a "faggot."
I'm glad to hear that her bigotry is costing her financially. That's the only thing has any chance of affecting her. I'm sure she won't change, because she's made a career out of acting that way and there are plenty of people out that want to hear her brand hate-based propaganda.

I did like the fact that the article credited a blogger with the withdrawal of the ads:
A diarist at the liberal blog posted contact information for dozens of companies with ads on Coulter's site after the commentator made her remarks about Edwards at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington on Friday. (Full story)

"One of the best ways to communicate one's distaste for Coulter's repeated incidents of hate speech is to respectfully but firmly let her advertisers know you are deeply troubled by their indirect support of bigotry through their advertising on Coulter's Web site," the blogger VolvoDrivingLiberal wrote on on Sunday.
Keep up the good work VolvoDrivingLiberal!
