I love Ann Coulter’s wit. She really nails the hypocrisy of establishment elites right between the eyes, especially when they are out in full force trying to get conservatives and Christians to abandon their principles so we can be more moderate and take back the nation with great moderate leaders like… John McCain. But let Ann say it:
Washington elites’ heads exploded when Christine O’Donnell won the Republican Senate primary in Delaware last week. Luckily they were all reading The New York Times’ op-ed page at the time, so the mess their exploding heads created was minimal.
The establishment’s complaints are confusing. They say O’Donnell has a problem because she’s never held a job in the private sector (like our president), didn’t pay her taxes (like our treasury secretary), and had her house foreclosed on (like half of the electorate).
They also accuse her of saying crazy things — but she’s running for Joe Biden’s old seat, so this may be an advantage.
This week, all we’ve heard about is how O’Donnell once said she went on a date with a guy in high school who claimed to be a witch. (So what? Bill Clinton married one!) Bill Clinton was credibly accused of at least one forcible rape. Those two seem about equal to you?
I haven’t seen hypocrisy like this since — oh, that’s right, since last week when CBS’s Bob Schieffer attacked John Boehner for smoking, after two years of the media’s ferociously avoiding the topic of Obama’s cigarette habit.
I had really hard time with that last one last week. They were giving John Boehner a hard time for smoking when BHO smokes up a storm on a regular basis. Could not Schieffer see the hypocrisy of his questioning when it was so clear to the rest of the country?
Ann goes on to write about how all Washington elites are saying Tea Party candidates are like Barry Goldwater, although no one is using that name except Washington elites. The name that Tea Partiers keep using is Ronald Reagan. He was the true conservative, not Goldwater. BTW, most people who are active today don’t even remember Goldwater. I know I’m approaching 50 and I don’t remember him.
Just another note, this is the second post today that I managed to write about Ronald Reagan.
