In a blog post today conservative author Michelle Malkin dug at Ann Coulter for comments she made on "This Week" on Sunday.
Speaking about potential veep choices for Mitt Romney, should he win the Republican nomination for president, Coulter said, "You can’t have a novelty candidate, I think. That would ring too much like Sarah Palin."
Malkin responded on her blog:
Unbelievably, Coulter is under the continued delusion that Sarah Palin was the problem with the 2008 ticket and not McCain. Later in the show, when Van Jones floated former Bush Secretary of State Condoleezza Rices name for VP, Coulter snorted again: “Too much like Palin.”
"Sometimes, the war on conservative women isn’t just being waged by the Left," Malkin continued. "This is a form of political fragging. Shame."
Looks like a case of brunette on blonde crime.
But look: In 2008 Palin was crowned "Conservative of the Year" by Human Events. Coulter wrote the accompanying column:
The entire presidential election year was kind of a downer for conservatives. Once the “maverick” John McCain won the nomination, the rest of the year was like watching a slow motion car crash. Except at least a slow-motion car crash is occasionally entertaining. So it was going to be a long year.
Palin was a kick in the pants, she energized conservatives, and she made liberal heads explode. Other than his brave military service, introducing Sarah Palin to Americans is the greatest thing John McCain ever did for his country.
Doesn't really sound like someone waging a "war on conservative women" to me.
We reached out to Coulter by email for comment and will update if she responds.
