The 9/11 advocates, otherwise known by Ann "…never seen people enjoying their husband’s death so much" Coulter as millionaire broads, have spoken. It’s in your face, from the Jersey wives.
So see the GOP try to run. But they can’t hide from their base. They need them. It’s the only way they can win in November.
Some doubted why I put so much focus on Ann Coulter yesterday. I mean, really, she’s such a wingnut wacko, right? Well, the Republicans don’t like to claim her, but she is their base, baby. The anti immigrant, anti gay, anti women, anti everything contingent of the voting Republican Party. The crowd that listens to hack radio day in and day out. The ones who love Laura Ingraham, the woman who told journalists to get off their balconies in Iraq and report the war. Mind you, since the CBS crew’s death and injuries recently, Iraq is now the most dangerous war in history for journalists.
The base just loves little Ann. They embrace her and stand by her, even defend her. Read it and see the Republican Party. Ann Coulter is that face.
While considerable attention focuses on Ann Coulter’s more superficial charms, from a conservative perspective Ann’s real beauty is her absolute refusal to buy into liberal logic, no matter how pervasive. That independence of mind was on display this morning during her ‘Today’ interview with Matt Lauer. Ann was on to tout her new book, Godless: The Church of Liberalism, released today on . . . 6/6/6 – sign of the devil and all that. …
Yep, NewsBusters loves her. Commenter "allanf" says: Truly a case of beauty vs. brains. Let’s call this one "the parrot and the Lady". Here’s more:
American Infidel: "I wonder if Lauer is still crawled up in the fetal position after the a** whoopin he just got from Ann? We’ve finally given liberals a war against fundamentalism, and they don’t want to fight it. They would, except it would put them on the same side as the United States. – Ann Coulter
Sam: I love Ann Coulter. A little brash at times but always witty and thought provoking.
Chris Norman: Why, oh, why, can’t all conservatives handle interviews with the MSM along the lines of Ms. Coulter? Why do they always seem to fall into the liberal reporters’ traps, let them frame the issue, and go on the defensive? Perhaps all conservative/Republican politicians should be forced to go to a media boot camp run by Ms. Coulter.
Truth Missile: when Conservatives tell the truth the MSM (including Google) cries "hate-speech!", when Liberals tell the truth… I mean if they ever told the truth… well, if and when a Liberal ever tells the truth we’ll figure out what the MSM lapdogs call it.
OutsidetheBeltway offers more from the wingnut base.
Patrick: I have a strong affection for Ms. Coulter, probably because she is a lot like myself. She speaks her mind and really doesn’t care who gets trampled in the process. I admire her for being able to do so with more wit and sophistication than myself. And she is a smoker from what I hear. My kind of woman!
Tri: I’m a conservative and I’m not against Ms. Coulter’s interview like many suggest we conservatives are. She hit the nail on the head. The left use these women as a mouthpiece because they think anyone that disagrees with them will look insensitive. To hell with their arguments.
Zelsdorf: The libs like to talk about speaking truth to power. That is what Ann does. The power of the media. To match wits with Ann, they need something of a larger caliber than Matt Lauer. James I am beggining to think you an apologist for the left. Why is that? There is nothing but truth in what she said about those particular 9/11 wives. Why is calling the President a liar acceptable speech, but telling the truth about those who oppose him is not.
There’s nothing the Republicans can do, because as is illustrated on the right-wing blogs today, Ann Coulter IS the Republican Party. If they diss their voters, the ones who revel in all things Ann Coulter, there won’t be anyone at the polls in November.
Mom and dad, wake up and see today’s Republican Party. It’s Ann Coulter. It’s enough to make a moderate Republican vote Democratic.
