Stacy McCain Notes Rick Santorum Calling Out Ann Coulter

Filed under: Immigration,Taxes & Government — Tom @ 8:08 am

Yesterday: “Rick Santorum to Ann Coulter: ‘I Mean, Ann, Should I Have Voted for Amnesty?”

Excerpt:

Santorum explained to the Iowa folks that he voted against “E-Verify” when it was part of John McCain’s amnesty bill in 2006 — a bill that Coulter and every other American with a shred of honesty, intelligence or patriotism also opposed. And what he said next was Tweet-worthy:

“Tell @AnnCoulter, next time you see her, get her facts straight.”

Wow. It’s takes a lot of confidence to throw down with Chairman Ann and, even though I’m having a hard time figuring out her pro-Romney turn in recent weeks, I could imagine the MSM headlines:

REPUBLICAN TELLS COULTER TO ‘GET HER FACTS STRAIGHT

Well Stacy, it also takes a lot of confidence (better word in this paragraph’s example: “courage”) to break a virtual seven-year blackout in a nationally televised debate over how the same-sex marriage saga in Massachusetts really went down, i.e., that Mitt Romney made it happen all by himself when he didn’t have to. What Rick didn’t also add it that Mitt Romney did it because he promised that he would.

As to Stacy’s claim that Ann has had a “pro-Romney turn in recent weeks,” it’s quite a bit longer than than that. Her mid-January 2008 column was correctly interpreted as a virtual Romney endorsement — “My thinking was that Romney would be our nominee because he is manifestly the best candidate” is a pretty clear statement of support.

In 2009, Coulter was already hanging up on interviewers who dared to try to bring up Mitt Romney’s real abortion and same-sex marriage records. So Ann’s fandom of the Mittster is no recent phenomenon.

  1. Question? Why haven’t you cross posted the bias Ann Coulter pulled on Santorum?

  3. Actually I meant at NB? But yes, the links are a must.

  4. #3, it’s not within NB’s scope, and it comes off as advocacy/opposition to specific political candidates, which is also outside of NB’s scope.
