Did anybody notice Hannity's jab?
Scott Ryan

Posted on 03/02/2012 6:19:30 PM PST by publius321

Did anyone notice Ann Coulter's reaction tonight when Hannity asked her opinion on whether Obama should give back the million dollars donated to his campaign by Bill Maher?

I was surprised because he prefaced the question by saying "You were friends with Maher" - referring to Coulter's old flame.

Did anyone else notice the expression she made after he said that?

It was like he subtly exposed her for the fake she is. How did Ann answer the question? Apparently not wanting to say anything negative about Maher (I wonder what he's got on HER), she changed the subject and said Barack Obama isn't going to be giving ANY money back because he's going to need every bit of it to defend himself against Mitt Romney..."

It was funny because her appearance was teased as being there to talk about Andrew Breitbart. I said to my wife and a guest with us "how long wil it take for her to stick a plug for her beloved Romney?"

We laughed.

About 3 minutes later Ann Coulter was on there shilling. I don't know if Coulter was close with Andrew but if she is - dear God - don't let her speak at his funeral because she has debased herself enough that no Romney pimping is out of bounds in her estimation.

If you did some digging into the social circles she hangs out with in New York City, you would find your answer.

As much as Ann(orexic) Coulter has become insufferable, she did manage to point out why Maher says what he does: he’s TRYING to get Hannity and others to play his outrageous statements on their highly rated shows to try to salvage his own basement ratings.

Ann is a closeted Log Cabin republican, IMO. I’m surprised more here haven’t figured that out.

Maybe Hannity had himself a little epiphany about the true nature of Coulter, one can only hope.

I thought Ann was out to lunch with her slavish devotion to Gov Crispy Creame. He's OK for NJ but he is a conservative wannabe. I don't say RINO because it's getting so we conservatives are "Republican In Name Only". It's getting like Reagan used to say about the Democrats in the 40s.

Anyway Christy's latest flap is his strong objection to NYPD surveillance of mosques.

I wonder,Whats gotten into her?

Ann Coulter, in her book Demonic, goes into some detail about “the techniques for inspiring mobs in liberal behavior.” According to Coulter “there are three main elements to putting an idea in a crowd: affirmation, repetition, and contagion.” Coulter also states that “the effects take time.” “Affirmation is the creation of a slogan free of all reasoning and all proof.”

For example: “Romney is the only candidate that can beat Obama” or “Romney is the only candidate that has the organization to take this all the way” or “Newt is unelectable” or “Cain is unelectable” or “Palin is unelectable” or “Newt has too much baggage” or, you pick one.

Coulter continues with “this is one of the surest means of making an idea enter the mind of crowds.” “Affirmation only works if it is constantly repeated and so far as possible in the same terms.” She goes on to state that ‘the power of repetition is due to the fact that the repeated statement is embedded in the long run in those profound regions of our unconscious selves in which the motives of actions are forged. Short slogans endlessly repeated create a current of opinion allowing the powerful mechanism of contagion to operate.” (Gustave Le Bon, The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind (Dover, 2002) (1895), 69.)

So, my conclusion is that the Republican Establishment, Coulter herself, as well as many of her fellow elitists, are utilizing those same tactics on WE THE PEOPLE! And a great many of WE THE PEOPLE are falling in line.

Coulter is no better than the left she says she despises.

I didn’t know she dated Maher, but I do seem to remember hearing she was dating some other liberal years back - Geraldo Rivera, maybe?

“Bill Maher - referring to Coulter’s old flame.”

If it fits.

I saw it. Soon as Hannity mentioned Maher’s name, a big smile came on her face.

Very telling.

So well stated!

In February 2010 at CPAC, I was sitting in the audience when Ann Coulter declared the following:

“Chris Christy MUST run for President in 2012, because if Mitt Romney is our nominee Obama will have four more years.”

I wonder what Ann got to make her big jump to the Romney camp??

Ann is “all in” on Romney, that’s for sure.
She is dead to me.

He could beat Mitt Romney with George Soros' spare pocket change.

A lot of people here - - me included - - were fooled for a long time.

We thought Ann was a genuine conservative. She clearly is not. Her enthusiastic support for Mittens-the-Self-Proclaimed-Moderate, exposes her for the fraud she is.

Who hasn't figured out that the chameleon Romney will say anything to pander for votes? I mean, who hasn't figured out that the man has absolutely no core convictions, and no clue about just how frightened real conservatives are over the serious threat Ubama and the rats pose to America?

Obviously, Ann has no clue either.
