I have been thinking about this whole Right Wing Rebellion, especially Ms. Ann "yeah, I know but she's probably hot in the sack" Coulter. As we all know by now, Ann said she would campaign for Hillary over McCain. The Reds have been mounting a ball of confusion. Rush Limbaugh on Super Tuesday was saying “McCain is a bum. McCain is a liberal” Fatboy went even as far as accuse McCain of overplaying ‘the veteran card.”
But are they REALLY saying that?More importantly did the Dems play right into their hands?
Were Ann’s comments really an attempt to manipulate the DEMOCRATS? There is an old Rovian trick. Cut down the one you can beat. People then rally behind them. Rove didn’t think Bush could beat Edwards. So he had his minions tear down Kerry in hopes that the folks would rally behind him. It worked, Ann is making it her own and we fell for it.
By championing Hillary was Ann's message really (follow me on this.. it’s getting late):
"I will support Hillary" therefore
Dems think that there must be wrong with Hillary. Ann says "She's more conservative than McCain" therefore
Dem's say "Ann like Hillary?? Me like Obama..." therefore
Obama has an extremely strong Super Tuesday.
The Reds think they have a better chance of beating of Obama.
Obama's experience pales to McCain. McCain has a history of reaching across the aisle. Obama was just labeled the most liberal Senator in Congress. Obama's black which (until Tuesday night) can't carry the South.
Put them in print and it's a blow out. Fortunately, seeing Obama in person is a whole different experience.
The Rush stuff is far more interesting. His bashing of McCain did backfire.. kind of. Rather than pushing support to Romney he emboldened Huckabee While Romney is probably the sexiest Mormon alive, Huckabee is much more likable and a very strong contender for Vice-presidential candidate. And a McCain/Huckabee ticket is exactly what the right wingers want.
