Mitt Romney's favorite new supporter: Ann Coulter

In a pitiful but expected act of desperation to appeal to the extreme right wing of the GOP, Mitt Romney is proudly touting a recent quote from Ann Coulter saying he's the strongest candidate in the 2012 Republican field.

We're not sure Coulter is someone whose admiration you should advertise. After all, Coulter is the speaker of such zingers as:

"It would be a much better country if women did not vote."
"I think a baseball bat is the most effective way to talk to liberals."
"I think the government should be spying on all Arabs."

from original article . . .

"Thats right, the same Ann Coulter who told a cheering CPAC crowd that if we dont run Chris Christie, Romney will be the nominee and well lose now praises Romney in his new ad, on exactly the same basis she trashed him on, his chances at beating President Obama.

2. She's made a calculation
She figures that since none of her favorites can win the Repuke nomination, she'd do better to have four more years of Obama to rail against. In her mind, that means having Mitt as the nominee, since she knows the fundies just absolutely will not support him in the general election.

Besides, I suspect that she and Newt have not always seen eye-to-eye, and she knows how crafty he can be with his enemies, especially those on his own side.
