Ann Coulter Calls John McCain a Liar, and Then Lies About Him (and MoveOn.org)
Reported by Melanie - February 1, 2008 -
Ann Coulter was Neil Cavuto's first guest today (February 1, 2008) on his "business news" show, Your World w/Neil Cavuto. Coulter was on to repeat her rant from last night's Hannity & Colmes about supporting Hillary Clinton over John McCain. Coulter obviously hates McCain but she had to resort to lying in order to hit him below the belt with what conservatives might consider the ultimate insult.
Some of Coulter's thoughts on McCain (and Romney):
-- McCain "lies, he has no honor."
-- People who "are coming to him" (endorsing him), are "less than worthless," they are "people who want a job in his administration."
-- Schwarzenegger endorsed McCain yesterday at a "solar energy plant?! ... Why not an abortion clinic?"
-- "I'm going to do everything I can to save the republic in the next four days!"
-- "I cannot understand why all Republicans are not voting for Mitt Romney."
-- Romney "is manifestly the best candidate. He is the smartest, the most successful. He's charming. He has a lovely family...though admittedly when he had to get the votes of, you know, Massachusetts, which is like running in North Korea, he said some things we're not that wild about."
-- McCain "claims he'll be tough on terrorism but he's very upset that we're dropping water down the noses of terrorists." (Rolls eyes.)
As for Coulter's big lie? (Yeah, I know. They keep on coming.) Cavuto told her MoveOn endorsed Barack Obama today and she said, "Yes, and the second choice is John McCain." (Naturally, Cavuto didn't say a word.)
Comment: Yes, she giggled (which gives her wiggle room for later use) but it wasn't at all clear that she was lying (er, "kidding" as she will undoubtedly say) and it is very likely that many in Cavuto's audience believed her and were shocked! Hell must have frozen over if McCain came in second at, according to Fox, the most radical organization in the United States, MoveOn.
Cavuto has spend a lot of time trashing McCain. It's obvious that the radical right (which includes Fox News) is trying to tout Romney ahead of "Super Tuesday," but I also get the sense that they're trying to beat McCain into submission because they see the writing on the wall.
For the record, and per MoveOn's press release, "The vote favored Senator Obama to Senator Clinton by 70.4% to 29.6%." John McCain isn't mentioned in the press release nor was he on MoveOn's online ballot. I know, because I voted.
UPDATE / 11:30 p.m. ET: "I cannot understand why all Republicans are not voting for Mitt Romney." Romney speaks at a car dealership in Denver today.
