PostHeaderIcon Coulter on Trump

I recall that some of you have a rather low opinion of Ann Coulter; but her latest column, “IT’S TIME FOR THE OTHER 13 CANDIDATES TO DROP OUT,” is well worth the read. For example:

At what point in Donald Trump’s inaugural address do you figure the GOP establishment will finally grasp what’s been happening?

The establishment — not “elites,” because they’re mostly bland functionaries who went to third-rate schools — have thrown absolutely everything they have at Trump. I’ve never seen so many Republicans featured on MSNBC.

At least no one will be able to say the Republican National Committee didn’t give it the old college try (and, again, that would be third-rate colleges).

Trump is a runaway hit with Americans for the simple reason that he’s the only candidate saying anything Americans care about.

It is pretty hard to argue with that…

After the San Bernardino terrorist attack, committed by Muslim immigrants — which followed the 1993 World Trade Center terrorist attack committed by Muslim immigrants; the 9/11 terrorist attacks committed by Muslim immigrants; the Fort Hood terrorist attack committed by a Muslim immigrant; the Boston Marathon terrorist attack committed by Muslim immigrants, and on and on — Trump suggested a temporary pause on Muslim immigration.

The other candidates responded by attacking him viciously. Now, the eunuchs are duking it out over who has the most aggressive approach to … fighting ISIS!

True…

Why are Republicans talking about starting a war in Syria to stop Muslim immigrants from killing Americans in America? Is it our job to straighten out Syria? Can’t our government just stop bringing the terrorists here? If Rubio thinks he knows how to govern Syria, he’s free to run for president there. (Except he’d have to stop talking about his dad the bartender because Muslims don’t drink.)

Republicans love pointing out that all the gun restrictions proposed by Democrats after every mass shooting would have done absolutely nothing to stop that particular mass shooting.

But the GOP’s demand that we take out ISIS would also have done nothing to prevent the San Bernardino attack. As we know from Jim Comey, the director of the FBI: Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik were planning a terrorist attack against Americans before ISIS existed.

It’s as if there’s a law of toughness conservation: The weaker a candidate is on protecting our borders, the more aggressively he talks about bombing foreign countries, a move known as “the Lindsey Graham.”

Brilliant points…

The GOP’s conservation of toughness has led them to such virile positions on Syria that even our feckless commander in chief is able to checkmate them.

Obama has said: “Let’s assume that we were to send 50,000 troops into Syria. What happens when there’s a terrorist attack generated from Yemen? Do we then send more troops into there? Or Libya perhaps? Or if there’s a terrorist network that’s operating anywhere else in North Africa or in Southeast Asia?”

Good grief! This GOP machismo on ISIS has resulted in Obama actually making sense.

Alas, agreed…

Here’s an idea: We let backward, poverty-stricken, misogynistic, clitorectomy-performing Third Worlders scratch out a living in their medieval hellholes, and just keep them out of our country. Also known as: the Trump Plan.

Except the fun parts when Trump was speaking, the candidates talked about almost nothing else at the debate but carpet-bombing the Middle East, taking out this leader or that group, sending American forces to train Sunni Arabs, touting the Kurds, announcing their specific strategies for defeating ISIS, giving perfect little answers about our nuclear throw-weights and the “nuclear triad” and correctly identifying the “good guys” and “bad guys” — all of whom live 7,000 miles away from us.

When do we get to talk about Americans?

<Sigh>… I have to agree again…

These debates have turned Republicans into self-parodies of wonkery over common sense. Without Trump in the debate, the entire audience would have been asleep in 30 minutes.

Rubio lectures Americans that “we need to understand who ISIS is.” Rubio needs to understand what a border is.

At this point, the most important question facing the Republican Party is: When Trump’s the only one with the poll numbers to make the main stage at the next debate, what should he do? Card tricks? Juggle? Sing “Danny Boy”?

LOL! I apologize for excerpting so much of it; but I just couldn’t help myself.  🙂  ◄Dave►

    No need to apologize. It’s all good stuff. I have read and watch a bit of Coulter this cycle. She’s getting a following back little by little. She went all in for Romney last cycle and lost her following. As I recall she was also a HUGE Christie fan. Chris Christie could do no wrong. Wonder why she’s not stumping for him this go round. A few years ago you would have thought she wanted to have his love child. Now he’s just another RINO to her. It’s been my opinion for a while that she’s looking for a ticket back to DC and goes with whoever she thinks will get her there. This trip around she’s giving truth a whirl which leaves me inclined to follow her again. She does have a sharp wit so there’s entertainment value at least.

    Trump may indeed get the nod, but I’m quite loathe to proceed to his coronation right now. Why not winnow the field and see if he can hold his own with Cruz, with whom he does share some immigration stances, and with Rubio? These top three (only) give plenty of choice and fairly reasoned thinking. The rest are muddying the swamp even more.

    BTW, Annie is pretty hit and miss with me. This column was a good one. Her past one hitting the 9/11 widows was disgraceful. When she aims to illuminate she can be helpful to conservative causes. When she tries too hard to entertain, she just gets downright caustic.

      I recall that one, when she introduced me the new word,’harpy.’ That may also have been the one that you, Larry, and Troy all three objected to my complementing her witty acerbic tongue. I recall that Troy remarked that if she visited our campfire, his only interest would be trying to look up her dress; and you admitting that you would kill for her legs. I was enamored with her tongue, while you guys were focused on the other end. 🙂 ◄Dave►
