Tall, Skinny, Conservative Blondes For Hillary

Ann Coulter continues her crusade against John McCain. To be fair, she makes better arguments than most, but she's still crazy. As imperfect as McCain is, I don't see how a conservative could prefer the Democrats' nominee.

I don't see how McCain can win with this level of antipathy from the right side of the party. Well actually the dems could perhaps find a way to lose.

While I've written in the past about his weaknesses as a candidate, the constituency isn't that hard to figure.

Not that long ago, the idea was to get your party's nomination and then run to the middle to win the election. That's been changed (partly by Karl Rove) by those who figure it's better to excite the base and get out the vote.

Well, McCain's idea is to at least make a feint toward the Right to make sure he gets enough of there votes (where else will the go?) and win with all the independents. Imagine if Hillary got the nomination. It might turn off a lot of African-American voters and other, but she'd still get the vast majority of them, and would also still have to appeal to those in the center.

Anne Coulter knows her appeal and income comes from engaging in outrageous attacks and tactics (I was going towite "spewing vitriol") and a McCain presidency which tried to reach across party lines (or better yet ignore them)would reduce, if not marginalize, her appeal. She sees Hilary as the most divisive option left and would benefit from the war of congress vs. the executive (she has said as much on the Today show) She is acting in the way most likely to maintain the income and influence she derives from shouting cartoon opinions.

This is way too cynical. When it comes to poltiics, I frind it hard to believe the 90% of the public believes what they say they believe, but apparently they do. Anne may exaggerate a bit for effect, but she's not lying. Neither is Rush. They believe in a certain type of conservatism and McCain falls far short.

I don't think that either Rush or Coulter give a rat's rear end about conservatism. McCain has repeatedly proven his conservative mettle by voting against the massive Republican spending bills. While both of them were defending the Republican Congress and President Bush, they were spending money wildly and driving us deeper into debt. McCain fought that.

When you can explain how the crazed spending spree of the Republican majority was more conservative than McCain's fiscal sanity, I'll believe that Rush and Coulter are right. Until then, they are both total windbags.

Great to hear from you, KT. A lot of cats don't like to speak up. Hope to hear from you again.

Rush and others are probably more interested in McCain stopping tax cuts than his stopping spending.
