Sarah Palin
By Ann Coulter
Sarah Palin was arguably the most influential person in 2008, but no one notices because she wasn't influential enough to overcome the deficits of her running mate and win the election.

Until Palin, 45, burst onto the scene, Obama was headed for a Nixon/McGovern landslide. Palin may not have changed the election result, but she killed what otherwise would have been a rout.

John McCain was so preposterous a candidate (at least on a Republican ticket) that Palin was responsible for far more votes than the usual vice-presidential candidate. The biggest red flag proving her popularity with normal Americans is that liberals won't shut up about her. Palin is a threat to liberals because she believes in God and country and family all values liberals pretend to believe in but secretly detest. There's a reason there's no "Stop Olympia Snowe before it's too late!" movement.

The American voter can be hornswoggled occasionally, but we can generally spot a real American, and that's what Sarah Palin is. She really was a housewife who went into politics because she didn't like the way her taxes were being spent. She really did take on the old-boy network the oil companies and her own party and won. And yes, she really did walk the walk on abortion when she found out she was carrying a Down-syndrome baby.

The combination of Palin's attractiveness as a candidate and her ability to expose liberals made her a celebrity among Republicans. The only thing I have against her is that she threatens to surpass me in attracting the left's hatred.

2. Well, it's Ann Coulter,
and she's only beginning her suck-up to whomever she thinks might have some kind of GOPig power in the future.

I think she's wrong about everything, as usual, but there is no argument that Palin made McCain much more attractive to the morans who were already geared (and wired) to vote Republican. It's not like she stole any votes away from people who were supporting Obama and then suddenly FLIPPED when Palin was named as the veep companion to McCain.

I mean, seriously. Can you imagine?

"Yeah, I was all for Obama until I saw Sarah Palin, and, man, that was it for me. I couldn't vote for anyone else."

Granted, there may have been a handful of Clinton supporters who voted for McCain/Palin out of spite, but, gee, everyone goes insane once in a while, don't they?

Poor Coulter. She's really starting to seem so terribly lost, isn't she?

Isn't that wonderful?

6. Laughter is the Best Medicine
Ann Coulter ceased to enrage me long ago. She's a toothless, pathetic, laughable buffoon now.

The future of the Republican party, if it has any, is McCain -- Meghan McCain, not John McCain. In other words, progressivism with a place at the table for capitalism, even if that sounds absurd to most of us.

Coulter/Limbaugh/O'Reilly/Beck/Wiener style screech-monkey poo-flinging will soon be seen as an amusing social pathology that happened "a few years ago", like Father Coughlin or Joe McCarthy or some of those early Birchites.

She made her pile. Forward, Ann, into retirement, and let the adults get back to work.

--d!

40. Me too
I stopped getting mad at her when she said Bill Clinton was gay. Her 'jump the shark' moment, I am just perplexed that braindead morans on her side of the aisle dont see that she is taking votes away from their candidates.

9. Must add this here: Delusional Element

Delusional Element

My last post talked about Jim DeMint's strange and dialectical "win by losing" credo. His way of "thinking" was nicely summed up in the Washington Post today by former Reagan and Bush 41 staffer Ed Rogers:

Notice to Republicans: Arlen Specter changing parties is good for the Democrats and President Obama and bad for us. If you think otherwise, put down the Ann Coulter book and go get some fresh air. There's always a delusional element within the GOP that thinks if we lose badly enough the Democrats will gain so much power they will implement all their crazy plans, the people will revolt and purest Republicans will then be swept back into power. Even if this were true, it doesn't take into account the damage done while our opponents are in control.

I guess it would be too much to expect for Rogers to also note the damage that could be done if conservatives insist on lashing the true-believer party base into a permanent counter-revolutionary hate frenzy. But at least he didn't blame the whole situation on Barack Obama's failure to be "bipartisan."

As a son of the Deep South, I am intimately familiar with the cultural phenomenon of believing in victory-through-defeat and the glamor of "noble" failure, a spiritual disease that inflicted many of the white folks of my region for more than a century. Maybe it's no coincidence that Jim DeMint comes from the state whose fever swamps first fed that affliction. I'd love to see the voters of the Palmetto State (my own native state), refute that suspicion before too very long.

13. Ann Coulter's dad: FBI, Phelps-Dodge attorney, union-buster.
Political theater, who cares?

She's not saying it cause she believes it, she's saying it to create theatre for the rubes to watch & fight each other over, while the folks who employ her steal the country from both sides.

Coulter usually makes her most outrageous comments when she has a new book coming out. To here it's just a way to get free advertising.

21. "The following photo of Coulter, shot by The Greenville News' Heidi Heilbrunn,"
http://rawstory.com/news/2008/Ann_Coulter_booksigning_t...

Coulter, hosted by Furman University's Conservative Students for a Better Tomorrow, gave her Wednesday address, entitled "Liberals are Wrong About Everything," to a crowd of 1,800 at the university's McAlister Auditorium.

The following photo of Coulter, shot by The Greenville News' Heidi Heilbrunn, alludes to a less-than-luxurious accommodation for Coulter as she greeted speech attendees and offered her autograph:

23. I certainly hope Coulter is representative of the wider Conservative base.
If they make Palin and others like her their new stars, they'll be out of power for decades.

24. Who cares? The more you freak out about her the more it suits her PR strategy
Anyone who takes Ann Coulter seriously is either her agent, a creditor, or too far gone to be worth expending further effort on.

27. Ann, go tell it on the mountain...
Ignore these other posters that are unaware of your ability to truly assess the electability of Sarah Palin. Only you can convince her to run again in 2012, and if needed in 2016. Please, Ann Coulter, keep Sarah Palin in front of the cameras and in the public eye as much as possible.

P.S. If you could, would you talk her into giving a few more in-depth interviews? I find the breadth of her knowledge to be fascinating.

36. So I'm in the mall today...
... my wife wanted some books, so I perused the nonfiction section of Walden Books. "Section" is too strong a word, it was a shelf 2 1/2 feet wide with more right-wing garbage than anything else, with Coulter's book featured. Then we went to the food court, which had FUX News on the big screen drowning out the muzak. This was in San Antonio, one of the pockets of Democratic voters in Texas. I don't know for a fact the mall is trying to convert people, I just know I went to 2 places and found propaganda in both.

So after all that, I'm glad you posted this tid bit of nit wit. McCain brought the ticket down? Do cats lift their leg to pee, and dogs cough up hair balls in this bizzaro world of which she speaks?

39. Coulter uses a lot of words to say NOTHING.
Palin brought in votes? Maybe, but my right-wing evangelical brother and his wife say she pushed them over the edge ...to vote for Obama after voting for Bush twice.

Um...I believe in God and country and family - who know I was a threat to liberals since I AM a liberal. No wait - Ann says I detest those things so I must be confused. :shrug: Who does this beotch think she is telling us what we think and believe?!? It seems most folks either believe in God or not, but not sure why they'd detest him. Country? WE are the country, but we might not like what right-wingers like her do in our name with our country. Family? Some people hate their family probably with good reason, but I think most people love their families (even if it's just the one they've created for themselves) because they're human - unlike Coulter who I believe is unmarried with no kids. That's fine if it's your choice, but considering that I hardly see her as some expert on family.

I agree that McCain was preposterous as a candidate for the Republicans considering that what's left of them are extremists and I wouldn't catagorize him as that. However, they had a large pool of candidates and they were all over the place. On what is she basing her assertion that Palin benefitted, rather than hurt the ticket?

Then she attests to who is a "real" American. Who appointed her to that job? The abortion comments are humorous since Palin recently admitted to struggling with the decision before she had her baby. What's there to struggle with if you don't believe in abortion? Sure seems like she made a CHOICE.

I'll admit she's attractive in that naughty librarian/Mrs. Robinson way which, let's face it, is why they picked her along with the fact that she's pro-life and pro-gun. The ultimate right-wing token candidate! The fact that she has ZERO policy knowledge and they nominated her anyway speaks VOLUMES about her selection.

One more thing....What does this line mean? "There's a reason there's no "Stop Olympia Snowe before it's too late!" movement."
