Ann Coulter Endorsing Clinton? And the Upcoming Primary

February 1, 2008

This has to be the weirdest endorsement of the season.

Ann Coulter has endorsed Hillary Clinton, says she will vote for her, says she will campaign for her, if John McCain is the Republican nominee.

Alan Colmes raised his hands and said “My work is done.”

I really don’t think voters will hold this endorsement against Hillary, because no one listens to Ann Coulter anyway.

Clinton and Obama faced off last night in a mild-mannered debate that likely convinced more independents and moderate republicans to vote democratic than it persuaded democratic voters to change their support from one candidate to the other.

That’s good, it will help ensure a Democratic president in the Oval Office in January.

It’s also good because the latest polls have Hillary leading in almost all the Super Dooper states.

Massachusetts, Clinton up by 24
New Jersey, Clinton up by 12
Tennessee, Clinton up by 33
California, Clinton up by 3
Minnesota, Clinton up by 7
Oklahoma, Clinton up by 17
New York, Clinton up by 28
Arizona, Clinton up by 10
Delaware, Clinton by 22
Missouri, Clinton by 19

Latest polls also have Obama leading in Alabama and Georgia, and granted, some of the above polls were taken before big endorsements this week. But I think Clinton stopped the flow of votes to Obama last night.

Several of the states voting Tuesday do not have polls on the site.

Several questions have come my way about voting procedures for Tuesday. Here is a link to the ballot of you vote in District 7 (my district).

Here is the ballot for District 6.

From here you can link to the other district ballots.

You can not vote for delegates who are committed to a candidate different than the candidate you selected for president. So if you vote for Hillary, you can choose up to 4 male and 4 female delegates who are committed to her. Likewise for Obama.

If you want to vote for uncommitted delegates, you can not vote for a presidential candidate.

Here are instructions from the party web site. Instructions are also on the ballot.

Make plans to vote on Tuesday. Hillary Clinton.

Stooges Large and Small

June 27, 2007

There are stooges on the big stage, and stooges on the small stage. Ann Coulter qualifies as a big stage stooge. Yesterday Elizabeth Edwards decided enough is enough, and called in to Hardball, Chris Matthews’ show on which Coulter was a guest. In the past Coulter has made light of the death of the Edward’s son Wade, and Edwards had this to say, “You wrote a column a couple years ago which made fun of the moment of Charlie Dean’s death, and suggested that my husband had a bumper sticker on the back of his car that said ask me about my dead son. This is not legitimate political dialogue.”

Coulter did not back down, but she was visibly nervous, but Edwards stood her ground as well. Hardball Video (I had a hard time running this video, but you’ve probably seen it already).

I’ve already given Ann Coulter more time than she deserves, but here is my Coultergeist column for those who might not have seen it. It’s people like Ann Coulter who give the first amendment a bad name, but without it she (and maybe me) would not have a job. (This is a job???…not really)

And then there are stooges on the small stage. I thought the criminals were weeded out when the Quitman Mitchell administration was replaced by the Ed May administration. Bessemer revenue director Ryan Rancher has been fired, after being on leave since last month while officials investigated the revenue office. Randall McNeil, deputy director of the securities commission mentioned the possibility of criminal charges being filed.

And then there were the Three Stooges live on the Matt Murphy Show Monday. I won’t mention their names, but one of them is the host of the show, his guest just got fired from a weekly newspaper in Hoover, and the caller was his current boss at a local newspaper in Bessemer. They were stumbling all over each other (just like the Three Stooges I remember) trying to get the fired guy back up on the lofty pedestal he had created for himself.

Here is a sunflower blooming about 12 feet high.

Coultergeist

March 6, 2007

Last night as I was driving home my satellite radio somehow landed on Fox News and I heard the grating voice of Ann Coulter defending the slur she used against Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards. At the Conservative Political Action Conference she said, “I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word ‘faggot,’ so I — so kind of an impasse, can’t really talk about Edwards.” Coulter was referring to Grey’s anatomy’s star Isaiah Washington’s entrance into rehab (gayhab?) for using the word, first in describing fellow cast member T. R. Knight, then using the word again in denying that he used it in the first place. What? That’s not the first time Coulter has used that word to publicly describe democrats, she called Al Gore a “total fag” on Chris Matthew’s show “Hardball.”

Just as disturbing as Coulter’s use of the word, was the reaction of the conservative audience, laughing and applauding in approval of the use of a derogatory term to describe their rivals.

I quickly changed the station to Sirius Disorder but could not get Coulter’s voice out of my head. I fell asleep in the den and sometime during the night I woke up, I think, and noticed a faint glow from the TV set. I could hear faint static that slowly got louder, and thought I saw a little blond girl kneeling in front of the television, staring into it. “Hellooooo,” she whispered. “They’re here,” and her hands reached up to touch the screen. I could hear the voice of Ann Coulter cackling and as objects began sliding across the floor and through the air toward the door, I heard the squeaky voice of Tangina Barrons saying “I don’t know what hovers over this house. I’ve never sensed anything like it.”

Our home had been invaded by a Coultergeist, and as the battle to save little Carol Anne Freeling from Ann Coulter continued, I thought the whole house was going to disintegrate. “What’s happening” the older sister screamed, not understanding that a Coultergeist can invade the homes and minds of the innocent without warning. Be alert.

Just as quickly as it all began, it was over and the house returned to normal. I fell back asleep, but when I awoke this morning, I again heard the static coming from the TV, and also the faint cry of a little girl.

My apologies to Steven Spielberg and the cast of Poltergeist. I think I’ll rent that movie again.
