Who Castrated Ann Coulter?
http://spectator.org ^ | February 6 2012 | DAVID CATRON

Posted on 02/06/2012 8:37:28 AM PST by Para-Ord.45

something has happened to Coulter. I don't have firsthand knowledge that she was kidnapped by RINO Team Six and taken to an offshore medical facility where she was forced to undergo a gruesome surgical procedure, but many of her recent columns suggest that something of the sort must have occurred. What else could explain her endorsement of Mitt Romney? Once immutable where her core convictions were concerned, she has executed a vertigo-inducing volte-face in order to promote a brazen opportunist whose positions on the big issues were the opposite of hers before he began running for President. She relentlessly trashes Republican "moderates" like McCain, yet now supports a candidate who makes the Arizona Senator look like Barry Goldwater by comparison.

It first became apparent that something awful had happened to Coulter last November, when she wrote a column asking "If Not Romney, Who? If Not Now, When?" In this surreal effusion, she claimed that the media were "pushing Newt Gingrich" and other alternatives to Romney "because they are terrified of running against him." This, as many pointed out at the time, was preposterous. The only thing that terrifies the media about Romney is that he might not get the GOP nomination. This is the man they want to run against. Unlike Coulter, the media and the Obama reelection team know that Romney can be easily portrayed as a Wall Street parasite whose only memorable "accomplishment" as the Governor of Massachusetts was the enactment of a health "reform" law that renders him unable to credibly denounce ObamaCare.

Ann does appear to have an adam’s apple. Now an article wondering about “her castration”.

Hmmmmm... could it be Ann’s given name is something like Arnold?

It’s why I don’t trust ANY of them. They say what we want to hear and then flip on us and expect us to line up and come along. They have tried to whip us into a frenzy so we will accept whoever they shove down our throats.

No more.

As a parent, I learned that when a teenager is talking nonsense, it usually means they are basing their comments on having skin jn a game they don’t want you to know about. At its simplest, it means they are lying. But they may be lying for a reason unknown to you.

I think the same is going on with Coulter, et-al. I think they know or believe things we are not privy to, and end up taking a position that makes no sense to us.

Frankly, since they are obviously in a position to have information sources we don’t have, it’s a little scary.

She never was a conservative... she was and is a republican.... the same for most people who claim to be conservative, they are party first, everything else second ( there are plenty of examples to be found here on FR )...

You may be spot on with your suggestion. Far too many whom we’ve considered solid conservatives have shown a tendency toward moderation lately. I too think something’s going on. And I don’t like it.

This is why a Romney presidency will be a disaster for the Tea Party movement.

To support Romney, Tea Partiers have to abandon their principles and twist conservative logic into pretzels. It leaves everyone in the movement open to being called hypocrites. “You were against Obamacare, but are OK with Romneycare? You’re nothing but hypocrites that put party ahead of principle.”

If Tea Partiers stick to their principles (which would mean opposing Romney), they will be called petty purists that are only helping get Obama reelected.

And if the primary voters are foolish enough to follow her advice, they will rue the day they listened to her and the establishment Republicans with whom she has now made common cause.

Just like they did with forcing Reagan to select GHW Bush as his VP, they just showed her the brush they were going to tar her with and she rolled over.

Her rationalization for Romneycare was sad. It seemed that her major point was, “well healthcare is already all screwed up by the government, so whatever”. That's convincing.

She believes a Republican can't win without pulling in voters who went for Obama last time. She thinks Romney is the candidate who can do that.

The second statement is questionable, but the first is true, and ought to be addressed by the people who are attacking Ann.

Ann Coulter argues in a particular way. She always paints herself as a true conservative and those she disagrees with as godless, degenerate liberals and subjects them to ridicule.

She's not going to change that way of thinking and arguing, even if she's wrong or the people who disagree with her are more conservative.

I guess there's a kind of poetic justice in the way Ann's been dropped so quickly by fans and in the way she's being attacked by people who once worshiped her -- and being attacked in the same way that she used to attack her own targets.

But if you loved her or supported her in the past, how can all the good feeling vanish so quickly with one disagreement?

IMHO, somebody made a large purchase of Coulter’s book. We’re talking by the truckload.

Considering how much money Romney has passed out in recent years to buy politicians (including things like paying of Pawlenty’s campaign debt), and how much he spent in Florida, the cost of buying a ton of books to ensure a “conservative” author is on his side is certainly a reasonable suspicion.

Ann is out of her mind. Just before she was for Romney, she was arguing that if we didn’t draft Christie, Romney would be the nominee and he would lose. What exactly has changed Ann?

My take on it is psychological:

Conservatism was the ammo that offered the most bang for the young, pugnacious Coulter. She was the rebel against rebels, the outrageous right among the left (in college, law school, etc.) Now she seeks a second adolescence, trying to recapture that feeling, and being she’s firmly in the ranks of the conservatives, she can only rebel by becoming the outrageous left among the right.

It’s nothing to do with principles, really. It’s to do with psychology. The extreme high-strung tension, the manic torrent of words, the pyrotechnic hostility; these things betray a long-running inner conflict — as do the chronic smoking and drinking.

Then too, when the inner 14-year-old finds herself in the body of a 50-year-old...that’s got to detonate the ticking bomb. Nothing gets irrelevant faster than a woman passing 50, and losing attention is not to be borne.

Coulter’s concealed Carrie is coming out blasting.

The same way that all favorable views of General Benedict Arnold vanished the moment his treason was revealed to all.

If anyone on FR should be defending Ann Coulter, it OUGHT to be me. Why?

Years ago, on my FR profile page I put up a number of links to the late Senator Joe McCarthy proving he was right, and showing his detractors and enemies to be the lying hyenas they were. Ann Coulter took note of my FR page and made a semi-prominent mention of it. Does that mean I'm going to stand by her when she has betrayed everything that real American conservatives stand for, and made common cause with Mitt-Witt?

HELL EFFIN NO!!!

She showed her true colors, I'll have nothing more to do with her, and she can GTF down the road to LiberalVille as far as I'm concerned.

I often wonder how the blind can choose a candidate what with being unable to see what they look like. It seems to be that appearance is 90% of the qualifications for the job.

I remember a few years ago when everyone hooted and hollered when ever Ann hit the screen and raved about how there had to be the ‘obligatory’ picture.

“She believes a Republican can’t win without pulling in voters who went for Obama last time. She thinks Romney is the candidate who can do that.”

That’s funny. She believes that a choice between Cool-Black Obama and Stuffed-Shirt-White Obama people will vote for the stuffed shirt? She’s not too smart.

I guess in this election instead of asking who you’d rather have a beer with it’s going to come down to: Whose country club would you rather belong to?

I predict a low turnout all around in November.

The Romney campaign is already a disaster for the conservative movement. Just when they should be rarin' to go into battle to save the country, conservatives are sullen, demoralized and dispirited as it appears more and more likely that Romney will be the GOP's presidential standard bearer. If you don't believe me, just read the Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter, etc. threads on this board.

There’s a clip of Coulter saying, ‘I support Christie because otherwise we’ll get Romney and we’ll lose.’ Seems to me her original read on the candidates ‘might’ have been pragmatic, and given what’s going on, we’ll see, but showed a real lack of faith in Conservatism winning the day. I think she will regret having to shill for Romney.

Corrections:

Then too, when the inner 14-year-old BOY finds HIMself in the body of a 50-year-old transexual...and there's no need to worry about the ticking clock, because he has no functional womb to begin with. Nothing gets irrelevant faster than a transexual passing 50, and losing attention is not to be borne.

I corrected for grammar and punctuation.

Coulter is an opportunist. She talked the conservative line when it put cash in her pockets. Now that Romney is the establishment choice she falls in line because she thinks he has the bast chance of winning, and, therefore, put more cash in the hole in her head.
She has one guiding principal; what benefits her and to hell with all others.

Actually it looks like she’s spot on. Christie isn’t running. Romney is front runner and if he wins the GOP nomination odds are he will lose. The nutty thing is that she’s encouraging it. I guess she makes more money when a Dem is in office, the country be damned.

Appearance, the guy with the executive hair, unfortunately has made a difference for years now.

I remember when Nixon debated Kennedy in 1960. Those who heard it on the radio were clear that Nixon won the debate while those who saw the Nixon who was recovering from the flu and the carefully groomed and tanned Kennedy were sure that Kennedy won the debate.

This has evolved into one of the primary requirements for running: the candidate must look “presidential”.

It is a load, but voters tend to be shallow both in their candidate preferences as well as their intelligence.

Yours is an insightful post. I've always said, "When 2 + 2 = 5 or 7 you are missing one or three important pieces of information." Unfortunately much of what is happening today in Washington D.C. is more like 2 + 2 = 2.7 million.
