Ann Coulter’s Romney-promoting long ago went far beyond Romney promoting, into cheap shots against the Tea Party movement and just about anyone who was not on Team Romney. Much like the caustic Jennifer Rubin, insulting the people Romney will need to unite behind him seems to be Coulter’s schtick.
My prior posts from this campaign season:
- Ann Coulter can’t explain her flip flop on Romney
- Ann Coulter plays birther card on Tea Party for not supporting Romney
- Kamikaze conservative
- So much of what the left-wing said about Coulter turns out to be true
Here’s my translation of Coulter-speak:Fragging right.
“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.
