Ann Coulter: RINO?!
Daily Beast ^ | 03/14/2012 | Noah Kristula-Green

Posted on 03/14/2012 5:23:02 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

Ann Coulter seems to be continuing her flirtations with RINOism. First she defended Romneycare. Now she is taking on the Conservative Pundit-Fox News-Complex. Here is the latest heresy from Coulter, courtesy of Jeff Poor:

“And just a more corporate problem is I think our party and particularly our movement, the conservative movement, does have more of a problem with con men and charlatans than the Democratic Party,” she said. “I mean, the incentives seem to be set up to allow people — as long as you have a band of a few million fanatical followers, you can make money. The Democrats have managed to figure out how not to do that.

She cited Ohio Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich and former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean as examples where despite having a loyal following, Democrats haven’t honored him with even an MSNBC show.

“No, no, no — you embarrass us and drag this thing out, you are finished in the Democratic Party,” she said.

It's true! Michele Bachmann has a book. Herman Cain and Sarah Palin still get to speak at CPAC. Failing upwards is quite common among conservatives and makes it harder for the movement to have space for competent leaders. Coulter was prompted to give this answer after sarcastically noting it is ex-governor Sarah Palin who seems to be most eager to have a brokered convention despite not actually being a candidate for President.

I know many of the commentators will think that Coulter is throwing a giant stone from a glass house, but I would point out that Coulter has never pretended to run for office. It's one thing to be Fox News entertainer. It's even worse to transform from being an elected official into an entertainer.

From the Daily Caller:

http://dailycaller.com/2012/03/14/coulter-on-palin-brokered-convention-gop-has-a-problem-with-con-men-and-charlatans/#ixzz1p8m31NkR

EXCERPT:

Coulter, who was asked about the prospects of a brokered Republican convention, hinted — as she has done in the past – that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is promoting the idea because she would like to be considered for the GOP nomination should a brokered convention occur. Coulter warned that selecting a candidate that way would void the vetting process that has weeded out inferior candidates.

“One of the ones promoting that [a brokered convention] is Sarah Palin, who has suggested herself as the choice,” Coulter said. “I think as long as it’s between us girls — I’ve been observing something about her. I don’t think it’s likely to happen. I don’t know what these people are cheering for. As I wrote in a column a few weeks back, who is this dream candidate we’re hoping to get from the convention, because Rick Perry used to be the dream candidate. Can we see them in a debate first?”

RINO? I don’t think the word has the meaning it used to. People like Ann Coulter typify today’s Republican; I refuse to associate myself with the word any longer. However, I would say she’s definitely a CINO.

The problem for her is that her few million fanatical followers, and Sarah's, and Michele's, and Newt's, and Santorum's, are essentially the same people. The people who line up to shake Romney's hand are not the same people who line up to buy her books. She has made the mistake of misunderstanding who her public is.

It may cost her.

Sort of like the Dixie Chicks. Just who did they think were buying their albums? Who listens to blue-grass-flavored country pop? The very people they offended.

Ann is playing `Clove’ from District 2 (luxuries) in the movie `The Hunger Games.’
Her specialty is camouflage: She turns sideways and you can’t see her.
All she needs to survive are cartons of single malt scotch and Benson & Hedges Ultralight menthol 100s.

Ann knows that any “dream” candidate will be her own Mittens. Warren G. Harding came from a brokered convention.

Annie should not talk about herself like this.

Now that all us “fanatical followers” who bought her books and made her a famous conservative, we discover she’s nothing but a deceiptful, shake down artist. Live and learn.

She must be trying to herd up some fanatical democrats to buy her books and pay her speaking fees since conservatives are onto her scam.

She isn’t a RINO. She’s suffering early dementia and is being influenced by whoever she’s sleeping with currently. Sorry, but that’s my opinion.

I don’t give a fat $hit about Coulter anymore. May she continue adoring a homosexual loving, mandated healthcare, lying, abortion loving (I don’t believe him for a second) Mitten Romney.

She can go to hell.

Too bad. Ann is very intelligent and has written hundreds of great columns over the years. And she has been a great friend of FreeRepublic. But she has definitely lost it. And there’s no way at this stage that the left is going to welcome her over to their side.

Arlen Specter learned that the hard way, smart as he was. Nobody loves a traitor. He gave them the crucial votes they needed. Then the Democrats did what was inevitable: they used him up and threw him away.

Ann is taking one for the team. She is pissing off the conservatives and in response they are rejecting Romney.

She is pissing off the libs, because they are idiots anyway.

And the ones n the middle are buying her books.

Win, win, win.

This from someone who is a “political” celebrity. Coulter also recently stated that Romney “owes” her... that sounds to me like someone who will back down on her principles for political gain... she gets no respect from me.

Is it possible that Ann and others of her ilk
are not RINOs but chickens? If she truly thinks
that Mitty is the only one who can solve the
BO problem this November does that make her a
RINO? How ‘bout just wrong?

I think Coulter has put herself out there
for the libs to scorn and hate too long to
be relegated to RINO status. Unlike our
Dimo friends we know the meaning of mercy.
Or do we?

Coulter undoubtedly means Romney ~ he has several million politically blind fanatics who'll do anything to roll his body over the finish line first.

Say, isn't Anne one of those fanatics? Is she a "con man"? Hmm. I know that Fluke gal certainly gives me LGBS vibes, but......... well, we won't get into that.
