Coulter on Palin: Let’s face it, she’s probably not electable

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.

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!

Maybe Ann is jealous and wants to sell a book.

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.

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

Stopped listening to Coulter long ago. Was a big fan at one time.

You could still be right. The examples shown you are a small minority that are known to hate the establishment more than worry about “gay marriage” and such.

Or not, I don’t really know!

“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.)

>>but because she made an unforced decision to

And go on a “reality show.” A STUPID one, at that.

I would vote for her too, but does she not know or care about how that crap looks? Obviously not.

I completely agree. I really like the lady, but she is not going to save the conservatives. Maybe in the future... Just not her time this year.

In 2008, Ann bimbo choice was Mitt, now her love for Mitt is over, Then she fell in love with Sarah, but now she is jealous of her because of nice husband. Now she is drooling for Christe. Wait when that will be over, she may find something else.
Ann had dated every zero democrats and GOP guy, still not married. She had commitment problem.

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

There you go!

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.

Oh don’t worry too much about it.

I’m sure jla feels the same about Perry, who didn’t just have a fan who is pro-abort, but officially endorsed for the Presidency of the United States of America, Giuliani, a candidate who is and was super pro-abort.

Sorry I’m not addicted to the Palin cult of personality as so many here are.

Ah... but you are addicted to informing everyone you aren't addicted, right?

Coulter said if Christie were to stay out of the race, she may support Mitt Romney.

I’ve got an idea. Let her run and we’ll see how she does electorally. In the meantime she’ll destroy Obama, absolutely destroy him.
