Coulter on Palin: Let’s face it, she’s probably not electable
Hotair ^ | 09/06/2011 | Allahpundit

Posted on 09/06/2011 7:25:45 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

Interesting segment, not because Coulter’s advancing any new criticisms of Palin but because she’s 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 don’t want to deal with the hate mail from her supporters. That’s part of it, I’m 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 there’s simply no faster ticket to RINOville among some grassroots conservatives than uttering a discouraging word about Sarah. It’s 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, I’m curious why she’s speaking up now. Has she reached the point where she just doesn’t care anymore? Or is she so worried about the election that she’s willing to lose some fans in the interest of maximizing the GOP’s advantage?

Exit quotation: “She’s become sort of the Obama of the tea party, she’s just ‘The One’ to a certain segment of right-wingers.” Click the image to watch.

GOProud supports Sarah Palin as does lesbian, pro-abortion advocate, Tammy Bruce. The latter being featured in the film The Undefeated.

“It’s inexplicable, but no question ... Palin is gay kryptonite.”

So how would we explain Tammy Bruce? I guess she isn’t gender confused?

A lot of this is just Bruce's underhanded way to get folks to the '$ub$cription only' parts of her web site.
Since when does a pro-abortion lesbian speak for conservatives? Palin fanatics conveniently ignore Bruce's advocacy for killing infants in the womb. An utter disgrace.

Aside: Is 'The Tammy' rubbing Testim on her shoulders each morning? ~snicker~

RE: Make sure you read Palin’s speech in Iowa. I think someone posted the entire text here in FR. It’s a manifesto. It’s long. She gives a 5-point plan for getting us out of our mess. No one today but Palin could put together the collection of ideas and inspiration she showed us in Iowa.

>>> I know I haven’t bought one since she took her columns from the previous year and had an editor paste them together and call it a “book”

That describes how Charles Dickens wrote and published David Copperfield and various similar small works.

I agree with you totally. If she runs it will be a disaster as she will split the conservative vote and we’ll have Obama for 4 more years. Sorry I’m not addicted to the Palin cult of personality as so many here are.

That works the other way, too. Perhaps all of the conservative radio talk shows outside the Beltway are talking to each other to coordinate?

Tammy has been an intellectually honest liberal for more than 10 years. Yes some of her views are not conservative, but she recognizes the fascism of the Left and denounces it in her speeches and books. She is one liberal you can have a conversation with and she would not get angry and call you names.

Right now she is making too much money and has too much pull. If she runs and looses that would be all over. That fact that she keeps playing hide and seek with her candidacy is getting tiring. She would be greta as a cheerleader for our side and as a cabinet member but not as president.
She should state her intentions so we can get on with this .

Lame.Ass.Post.

I could produce a 15 second commercial that shows side by side what Palin did for Alaska and what Obama has done to the country.

Executive experience? The choice couldn't be clearer.

And to the other basher's, guess you didn't watch her Iowa speech. She put EVERYONE on notice; She's coming and the TEA Party is coming with her. About damn time those cozy bastards in D.C. feel uptight.

Thanks.

I’m sort of experiencing some cognitive dissonance now.

Quite a lot in fact. There’s a connection, but those are darn good examples of flaws in the theory.

Very noteworthy exceptions, Hillbuzz and Tammy Bruce. No question.

Yet I think of Rosie, or Hollywood, and there seems a connection. Maybe I’m just plain wrong.

Could happen.

I saw Coulter a few weeks ago at an event with the David Horowitz group. Lunch, Speech and book signing.

In her Speech, Ann said it was great seeing all the Republicans in the Debates trying out to be Christie's V.P. Running Mate.

Outside of a few groans from the Audience, mine included, the crowd just laughed and Ann went on to her next point,

The longer Sarah waits; the more RINO’s clothed as conservatives we see crawling out from under their rocks.

Interesting observation. I know I've lost respect for a lot of people who I thought were smarter than what they show now. It seems that there are many who don't want to change the culture of corruption in Washington. That saddens me.

The frickin' RINOs are using their fear of Obama as a club to bludgeon the rest of us into submitting to their candidate. Well, it just ain't gonna happen!

BINGO, I watched her speech in Iowa and she is spot on, no tightrope walking, no afraid of pissing off the fence sitters, just the truth and the facts. Nobody so far is as bold, not even Michelle Bachman. It seems those of my gender on the Right has left their gonads with their campaign managers

“Palin fanatics conveniently ignore Bruce’s advocacy for killing infants in the womb.”

A statement like that begs for some substantiation. I never overlook anyone’s support for baby-killing, and I don’t have the sense that many other Palin supporters do either. (Or “Palin fanatics,” if one wishes to denigrate the candidate and her supporters.)

Ann had dated every zero democrats and GOP guy, still not married. She had commitment problem.

Anderson: Reagan not electable - March 21, 1980

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — John B. Anderson said Thursday that nomination of Republican front-runner Ronald Reagan “will only insure the re-election of President Carter and the continuing economic disaster that we have suffered for three years.”

Said the Illinois congressman, who trails Reagan in the race for the nomination: “I cannot believe that the Republican Party will condemn itself to the kind of lopsided electoral contest that took place in 1964,” when GOP candidate Barry M. Goldwater lost to President Lyndon B. Johnson in a landslide.

Anderson spoke to 700 persons attending a business forum. Later, at a news conference, he would not seek the presidency on a third-party ticket if he fails to win the Republican nomination in July.
