Millions shocked as conversation breaks out: A right-wing blogger has launched a petition for conservatives to denounce Ann Coulter's "faggot" remark about John Edwards. What's kind of interesting are the comments, which cover the entire spectrum, from typical wingnut lunacy to (gasp!) serious discussion. Sample:

This isn’t about the First Amendment (no government actor involved) or even the concept of free speech (the audience has the same right; if it wants to boo or disassociate itself with a speaker who offends, it has every right to do so). This whole notion that criticism from the audience somehow stifles the free speech rights of the speaker is so juvenile I have a hard time believing those who toss the argument out are serious.
