Skip to comments.Ann Coulter’s “Novelty Candidate” Swipe at Sarah Palin
Posted on 04/02/2012 10:02:36 AM PDT by sheikdetailfeather
Mitt Romney supporter Ann Coulter appeared on the ABC News Sunday show, This Week, hosted by former Clintonite George Stephanopoulos. Asked about Romneys 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):
You cant 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.Hes been tested, hes steady, hes 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.

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.
Ann Coulter must want Obama re-elected, I cannot think of another reason
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.
“Looks like someones not happy about competition encroaching on her market, eh?
Heres my translation of Coulter-speak:
Novelty candidate is her code for a GOP candidate with widespread, grass-roots conservative support who doesnt 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 Coulters best Hollywood friends like misogynist Bill Maher hate.
Sometimes, the war on conservative women isnt 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.
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?
