Coulter endorses Hillary
Apparently she prefers her to McCain.
At least, so claims Drudge.
What I'm still trying to figure out is why McCain didn't make this list.
And why Romney did.
This is the first time in my life that I've had to decide whom I'm more against in a primary.
The Coulter endorsement helps.
I guess you could say this is clarifying.
(After all, I don't defend McCain, and I don't defend conservatism, so I need guidance from someone.)
UPDATE: Drudge now supplies the link to the Coulter endorsement, which is this YouTube video. She says Hillary will be better for the war on terror, and says the following:
"I'll campaign for her."It could have been worse.
At least she didn't call him the "fag candidate."
Perhaps I should stay tuned.
UPDATE: Watching last night's Democratic debate, Victor Davis Hanson opined:
The gulf between Hillary and McCain is Grand-Canyon like.(Via Glenn Reynolds.)
What's a little Grand Canyon to Ann Coulter?
MORE: I don't know whether pork is a Coulter war issue, but Examiner columnist Tim Carney found a sharp contrast between McCain and Hillary:
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., is a leading opponent of pork and one of the only lawmakers to forswear earmarks, while Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., is Congress' leading porker."Leading porker" versus "leading opponent of pork"?
(Shhh! Better not let Ann hear about that or she'll call McCain an apologist for Sharia, and Islamofascism.... And Hillary a Great American Patriot!)
UPDATE: My thanks Glenn Reynolds for the link, and a warm welcome to all.
Comments always appreciated, agree or not; I discussed the comment about the slowly boiled frog here.
UPDATE: Calling Coulter's outburst a "hysterical demand for extortion rather than a considered and thoughtful political position," Ed Morrissey wonders whether she's finally jumped the shark:
It appears Coulter hates McCain more than she cares about conservative values. She has acquired McCain Derangement Syndrome, and is rather obviously unbalanced by it. Sean Hannity was clearly embarrassed to listen to this tirade, and Coulter should have been embarrassed to have indulged in it.I don't think Ann Coulter is embarrassed by anything she says. Whether she's an entertainer or a troll, her shock marketing technique obviously works, for she sells a lot of books.
(Whether she should be taken seriously is another matter.)
UPDATE: A reader helpfully emailed me with a quote from Ann Coulter's web site -- AnnCoulter.com:
"The bright side of the Florida debacle is that I no longer fear Hillary Clinton. (I mean in terms of her becoming president -- on a personal level, she's still a little creepy.) I'd rather deal with President Hillary than with President McCain."Maybe Hillary can hire Ann to do Republican outreach.
UPDATE: Hillary has welcomed Ann Coulter's support!
Strange bedfellows beware!
