Ann Coulter calls Piers Morgan a "sexist, misogynist pig."

Piers Morgan doesn't understand the "euphymism treadmill."

Coulter has a fair point about the "word police," which only gets used against conservatives.

For example, when did "retard" get on the list of words which should never, ever be used? Five minutes ago? How about "idiot" or "cretin," which are both technical terms for people with cognitive limitations.

Retard's been out of bounds for decades; it would have been fighting words when we were in middle school.

"Retard" is grade school insult, but the idea that it is taboo in the same way that a racial epithet is is simply one of those quickly trundled out rules that applies to conservatives but disappears when the offender is a liberal.
