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.

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.
Ann has become a disgrace and a fraud. I guess either she was a self-interested hack from the beginning, or Bill Maher may have inseminated her with some of his creepiness. Bob
Love your tag line;)
Never could stand Ann. She crossed over to the dark side in the middle of W’s admin. I don’t understand why FReepers are still posting threads for that nasty skinny freak.
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.
Never assume a Republican is a conservative.

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.
You know what this means right?
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 dont have, its a little scary.
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.
She’s a turncoat sellout traitor to the conservative cause. Obviously, someone found her pricepoint and paid it.
***Whoever got her also got ahold of Nikki Haley and John Bolton as well.***
Believe that is the key.
While Newt was lending his inspiration to the people, Romney was spreading his wealth to the weak and they took it.
I see no dignity in speculating on Ann’s personal appearance or her acquaintances. It’s clear that many of us feel betrayed but consider that she is just another celebrity who articulated some of our beliefs in a unique and forceful way. She is entitled to self preservation and financial support and to sell her soul to the highest bidder - so just let go and move on. We are not responsible for her lack of conscience or ethics.
I like Ann. She's a bit over the top here, but I'll give her a pass. She has earned it.
“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 shes firmly in the ranks of the conservatives, she can only rebel by becoming the outrageous left among the right.
Its nothing to do with principles, really. Its 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.”
Hmmm. How you describe Anne is almost exactly how I would describe Newt.
Because I've always liked her in the past, I am mystified by her present support for Romney. Almost every one of her attacks on Gingrich are more true of Romney.
Its entirely possible to be conservative and not like Gingrich but its not easy to be conservative and support a guy like Romney. If you do, though, especially if you are a talented writer, you should be able to explain how you get intellectually from A to B and to my mind she hasn't done it.
So far the only defense I've heard of Romney from any Romniac is essentially that he is electable. For a political pro thats probably enough. For an idealogue, that isn't enough and I expect a better explanation from someone like Coulter. Til I get it her position mystifies me and when things don't make sense people tend to assume bad faith.
She likes Christie. So once he supported Romney, so did she.
Not me. The stakes are to high this time. Ms. Coulter is an arrogant, know it all. Everybody that doesn’t agree with her is just too stupid to understand. I detest people like that. She has done far too many things lately to simply give her a pass. She has earned nothing.
Ann and others have allowed fear to drive them into RINOtopia, where they can have warm, fuzzy dreams of Oromney paternalism.
Money is what happened. Mitt has a lot, and Newt doesn’t. That and Newt managed to turn everyone against him last time, and the GOP does not want him running the show.
You are right.
This is the worst set of canidates I have ever seen.
