Beloved liberal icon Ann Coulter had stern words for genius Facebook inventor Sarah Palin, whom apparently she simply does not care for, while speaking in Vero Beach, Florida.
“One of the ones promoting that [a brokered convention] is Sarah Palin, who has suggested herself as the choice,” Coulter said. “I think as long as it’s between us girls — I’ve been observing something about her. I don’t think it’s likely to happen. I don’t know what these people are cheering for. As I wrote in a column a few weeks back, who is this dream candidate we’re hoping to get from the convention, because Rick Perry used to be the dream candidate. Can we see them in a debate first?”
Coulter was so perturbed, she was forced to compare Palin unfavorably to the Democrat Party.
“And just a more corporate problem is I think our party and particularly our movement, the conservative movement, does have more of a problem with con men and charlatans than the Democratic Party,” she said. “I mean, the incentives seem to be set up to allow people — as long as you have a band of a few million fanatical followers, you can make money. The Democrats have managed to figure out how not to do that.”
Coulter proposed a pledge for Republican presidential candidates, which would be meant to limit their ability to profit off of political stardom.
“The one pledge I support and I think I’m going to draft it up is for all Republican nominees for president — I want them to sign a pledge saying, ‘If I lose the nomination I pledge I will not take a gig with Fox News or write a book.’”
Coulter, a frequent guest on various television programs featuring political inanities, is herself the author of nine “books.”
