Ann Coulter’s “Novelty Candidate” Swipe at Sarah Palin

Mitt Romney supporter Ann Coulter appeared on the ABC News Sunday show, “This Week,” hosted by former Clintonite George Stephanopoulos. Asked about Romney’s potential vice presidential picks, she said this (while seated at a table with former green jobs czar Van Jones, who served under the Biggest Novelty Candidate of Them All, Barack Obama):

Ann Coulter:

“You can’t have a novelty candidate, I think. That would ring too much like Sarah Palin. I agree with George Will that it be good to have little tea party excitement, and the odds-on favorite, I mean, certainly the betting is on Marco Rubio, I think that would be a mistake.” But Coulter, who is a firm Mitt Romney supporter, said the GOP frontrunner needs a running mate who is tried and tested, she suggested Romney pick someone like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie or Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl, R-Ariz.”He’s been tested, he’s steady, he’s not frightening. He could certainly step into the job” Coulter said of Kyl.

Unbelievably, Coulter is under the continued delusion that Sarah Palin was the problem with the 2008 ticket and not McCain. Later in the show, when Van Jones floated former Bush Secretary of State Condoleezza Rices name for VP, Coulter snorted again: “Too much like Palin.”

Say what?

Ann Coulter is trading in the people who have bought her books and supported her for the in crowd of progressives and Washington elites. It’s sad, and she’ll pay for it in the long run.

If Colter had one tenth the intelligence of Palin she might be able to find the toilet in the dark.

Sorry, but I pay no attention to this Romney-supporting quisling. I’ll not read her words, her books, or view any videos of hers.

Coulter championing a Romney/Christie ticket.

Now THERE’S a real shocker.

As for novelty, how about electing a 2012 ticket of Pres and VP that is fully eligible to hold office.

(excerpt)

“Looks like someone’s not happy about competition encroaching on her market, eh?

Here’s my translation of Coulter-speak:

“Novelty candidate” is her code for a GOP candidate with widespread, grass-roots conservative support who doesn’t make large portions of the rank-and-file Right queasy with doubt.

That was who Sarah Palin represented on the liberal Republican John McCain ticket.

“Novelty candidate” means an outside-the-Beltway, outside-the-establishment public servant who speaks from the heart, lives political and personal life on her own terms, and embodies all that Coulter’s best Hollywood friends like misogynist Bill Maher hate.

Sometimes, the war on conservative women isn’t just being waged by the Left.

This is a form of political fragging. Shame.”

I think Michael Savage may have been right about her all along.

When I saw she was coming up on FOX news this morning I changed the channel and have been watching Top Gear on BBC America ever since.

Yes it’s gonna be interesting to see how Ann Coulter’s next book does. I used to be proud of my complete collection of Coulter books, and I would replace ones that I loaned out and never got back. She’s now an embarrassment and I just dumped all my Coulter books on eBay and could barely give some of them away.

Good grief, Ann has been cutting a wide swath of seething destruction. That mouth has been working overtime in a overwrought way to ruin her fan base. This is something she is good at. I heard she has a new beau. Maybe this is contributing to her meltdown.

All this for Mutt and Cristie Kreme.

No love for Coulter here. But, with all due respect sir, your comment is over the line.

I’ve heard enough out of this cocktail sipping harpy. She just needs to go away.

“Mark Levin just tweeted this.”

But he also said this two weeks ago about Ann:

I never liked her; I always thought she was a phony. I’m proved right on this, now. FUAC.

Totally agree with you—even when I was short on cash, I'd buy Coulter’s books—loved them and also wanted to show support for Conservative writers in any way that I could. NO MORE, Ann.

Astute analysis there.

Really used to enjoy Coulter...particularly the way she took no crap from the left.

‘Tis a shame indeed.

Can I get my money back for the Coulter books I bought?
