Skip to comments.Coulter on Palin: Let’s face it, she’s probably not electable

Interesting segment, not because Coulters advancing any new criticisms of Palin but because shes willing to acknowledge openly the political risk on the right in criticizing her in the first place. According to Coulter, conservatives refuse to challenge Palin publicly because they dont want to deal with the hate mail from her supporters. Thats part of it, Im sure by now, all columnists and bloggers know what awaits after criticizing Palin or, say, Ron Paul but I suspect the better part is that theres simply no faster ticket to RINOville among some grassroots conservatives than uttering a discouraging word about Sarah. Its the ultimate one of us litmus test; not even a right-winger as stalwart and confrontational as Coulter is immune, apparently, from the inevitable establishment/RINO/sellout/Beltway cocktail party nonsense afterward. That said, Im curious why shes speaking up now. Has she reached the point where she just doesnt care anymore? Or is she so worried about the election that shes willing to lose some fans in the interest of maximizing the GOPs advantage?
Exit quotation: Shes become sort of the Obama of the tea party, shes just The One to a certain segment of right-wingers. Click the image to watch.
As someone who had purchased and read all her previous books I disagree. It was a rip-off and lazy and I won’t purchase anymore of her books because of it.
If you think the book was marketed to those who were on the “borderline” then it’s clear you have no clue about Coulter or marketing.
Could Ann Coulter be going “David Brock” on us?
Ann Coulter’s sexual orientation is not instructive. Her worship of Mitt Romney last primary IS instructive.
Is that supposed to be a limerick? It doesn’t even rhyme.
I love people looking differently at the posts
I'm a miserable poet
The ordering was to increase readability
but Freepers have had fun with it
I do need to look again at her version
as to why she stepped down
But the average squishy middle voter
might be swayed with that argument
Someone should remind Ann that “unelectable” was the same label attached to Ronald Reagan.
Difficult road ahead? Absolutely.
Unelectable? Sorry, I’m not going to buy that.
All you need to do is read chapter 5, The Thumpin’, from her book “Going Rogue for a complete explanation as to why she was forced to make the decision she did to resign.
People think Coulter's comment is ridiculus. Deal with it.
Your "OMG", "punnishable by death" and it's an "inquisition" hyperbole is noted.
Let me channel Zell Miller talking to Chrissie Matthews during the 2004 Repub convention," You know what a metaphor is, don't you Chris"?
To say a potential candidate is “not electable” fourteen months before the election is motivated by two things:
1) the fact that you have no idea if she is electable
2) your fear that she might in fact win and you don’t want her to
These two have caught Jan Brady Disease...
"Sarah Sarah Sarah"...
For Debate Style And Content Look To Governor Palin http://bit.ly/p3WUqa
Mr. L gives the smackdown to the infamous Ingham/Coulter Fox News Tuesday screech-segment.
Is Coulter aware of Palin’s political ideas?
I know what arrogant condescension is.
Just because people are forced to condescend to meet you at your level does not provide the understanding that desperately escapes you. I know what arrogant stupidity is. You are looking at it in the mirror.
You don’t take what you perceive to be criticism of your opinions very well, do you? Have you always had a problem with extreme defensiveness when someone challenges what you believe is your intellectual superiority?
When a poster resorts to condescension and insults rather than debate, they’ve lost. You lost.
The thread started out with ad hominem attacks against Ann Coulter by freepers who seem to believe their enemies are those that only agree with them 90% of the time. I pointed that out and received an ad hominem attack from someone I assume to be an idiot. Tit for tat.
Stop crying and put on your big boy pants.
That was pitiful. Just pitiful.
