Otherwise dependable conservatives appear to be losing their minds in their zeal to vanquish the media-created first family from the White House. Ann Coulter, a one-time paragon of hard-core conservatism, has confirmed a growing suspicion that she possesses a latent liberal streak. By endorsing and singing the praises of Mitt-the-Flip, her open affection for left-wing nasties like Joy Behar and Bill Maher no longer appear to be anomalies.
Not one to leave bad enough alone, Coulter did a spin piece Feb. 1 on Romneys Obamacare model titled 3 cheers for Romneycare, which ended with, Romney is the most electable candidate not only because it will be nearly impossible for the media to demonize this self-made Mormon square, devoted to his wife and church, but precisely because he is the most conservative candidate.
It was something one might have expected to be written by that other blonde the one with the birds nest on her head Debbie WassHerName. The column was so far out on the left limb of the political tree that it must have brought tears of joy to Michael Moore.
Coulters statement that No one is claiming that the Constitution gives each person an unalienable right not to buy insurance caused me to have an optical migraine. The Constitution doesnt give people the right not to buy insurance? Huh?

Thank you. I refuse to use the word "gay." Homo or sodomite works fine for me. They've co-opted "gay" in order to camouflage the disgusting reality of what they practice. I prefer to have it all out there in the open.
I think that the most logical explanation is that Coulter was never a conservative. She is a talented bomb-thrower who found that she could get a lot of attention from conservatives by articulating their views. She got to appear in a lot of conservative forums, and she sold many books to conservatives.
Apparently, having long blond hair made her attractive to a lot of conservative men. (I swear I think I could post a photo of my dog wearing a long blond wig and get many of the men here to post “not guilty”.) This woman has always found her physically odd and mannish looking with annoying gestures such as rolling her eyes too much and stuffing her hair behind her ears while she talks. (Last time I saw her on TV, however, I noted that she must have been getting some coaching for these quirks.)
In summary, Coulter is an entertainer and an attention addict who will represent whatever views will get people to listen to her.

I’ve found her tiresome lately. Not because supporting Mitt is proof of irreversible corruption. Choices are limited, and comparing Mitt/Newt/Santorum is six of one, half a dozen of the middle, and two trios of the latter. No, it’s because I might as well not bother listening, since I know from now to November will be the yawny establishment party line.
Defending Romneycare, though, if that’s what she’s doing, is something else. I dare call it shark jumping.
Losing one’s mind is something the left doesn’t have to worry about. :’) Thanks Old Teufel Hunden.
You mean Ann is a tranny?
Deranged and Romney.
Is Ann Coulter morphing herself into a Arianna Huffington conversion?
All Newt did was question if Romney mismanaged the money of some companies which went into bankruptcy. If somebody was running a bunch of companies, and something like 40% of them went bankrupt, as they did at Bain in the ‘90s, don’t you think it’s worth questioning Romney’s claims that he was a good businessman and a job creator? The fact is Romney’s business model was to leverage companies heavily and take profits out of those companies even when they were struggling to turn themselves around, which made them more likely to go into bankruptcy, which they often did.
It has nothing to do with Christie. Coulter endorsed Romney in 2008 also. Drudge was also in Romney’s back pocket during the 2008 campaign. Their scheme seemed to have worked a LOT better back then. They had conservatives convinced that Huckabee was a liberal the same way they tried to with Newt.
THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM
January 16, 2008
There is something wrong with Ann, something is very amiss. She’s too young to be menopausal, isn’t she?
Whatever the problem is, I hope she seeks help and guidance. Prayer would be a good start.
She was once a very reliable, gutsy conservative. Now she’s endorsing Mittens?
Something is very wrong. I would be surprised if it’s strictly about the activist homosexual agenda.
Here is the question the Wall Street Journal asked of Romney in a debate. Note the WSJ is not a liberal rag. Romney had a lame dodgy answer for the question and didn’t address it substantively. And below this is a quote from Romney addressing this same issue in a NY Times interview 4 years ago. The private equity leveraged buyout model has been analyzed and many think it damages companies precisely because it drives them into debt.
SEIB: Governor Romney, lets look a little deeper at the business record that youre talking about. In a nutshell, what your opponents here are saying is that Bain Capital and other private equity firms, buy companies, load them up with debt, take the profits and then head for the exits. Lets look at another example and allow you to respond through that. America Pad and Paper is a company that Bain Capital bought with $5 million, took on more debt to expand, couldnt pay back the loans, went bankrupt and several hundred people lost their jobs.
Bain Capital though, took $100 million in profits and fees. Does that show a flaw in the Bain Capital model? Or is that just the rough and tumble of America capitalism?
Both Dade Behring and KB Toys soon suffered dips in their business. Unable to meet the burden of their debts, each filed for bankruptcy and laid off thousands of workers. Bain Capital spokesmen have said the company did nothing improper.
Mr. Romney, who remains an investor in Bain Capital, said he had not been involved in those decisions but acknowledged that such payments became part of the buyout business very early on.
It is one thing that if I had a chance to go back I would be more sensitive to, Mr. Romney said. It is always a balance. Great care has got to be taken not to take a dividend or a distribution from a company that puts that company at risk. He added that taking a big payment from a company that later failed would make me sick, sick at heart.
Romney appointed liberal judges in Mass. WHy you think he’d even be marginally better than 0bummer is mind boggling.
They’re the only women I know with Adam’s apples.
If I had to choose between Mittnes and McManiac, I would choose Mittens, And, as a matter of fact, I did - in 2008.
But by then Huckabee had dropped out by the time my state’s primary came around. Otherwise I would have voted for Huckabee.
I like Huckabee. I think he is a good, strong Christian conservative and would make a great President. I enjoy watching his program on TV.
For some incomprehensible reason some conservatives - probably mainly some of my northeastern conservatives, don’t like him.
I don’t get it.
Its unfortunate Huckabee didn’t run this time around. He would have cleaned Mittens’ clock.
