This is what happens when you pal around with Bill Maher


Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham Trash Sarah Palin

Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham took a series of brutal swipes at Sarah Palin on Tuesday’s “O’Reilly Factor.”

Ingraham was filling in for Bill O’Reilly, and she and Coulter agreed that Palin has outstayed her welcome.

“She’s become sort of the Obama of the Tea Party,” Coulter said. “She’s just ‘The One’ to a certain segment of right wingers. And the tiniest criticism of her — I think many of your viewers may not know this. No conservative on TV will criticize Palin, because they don’t want to deal with the hate mail.”

Ingraham said that Palin is too thin on policy to be a credible presidential candidate. She said people were “desperate” for “real substance” and that Palin doesn’t seem “all that interested in digging really, really deep on that stuff.”

Coulter said that Palin’s die-hard fans were becoming a real problem.

Do you get the feeling the GOP establishment is getting nervous?

    neither of these two women could keep up with Sarah Palin.
    She gives voice to many Americans and makes it look easy while she does it.
    She has run a state, and did a good job at it, raised kids and kept a great husband at the same time. and btw she writes books that outsell these two women.
    Other than put down people, read what is written for them on tv, just what have they accomplished?

    unemployment needs to start in DC asap

    1, this is so far past nervous that it isn’t funny, no, really it’s not funny, it’s rather pathetic and, 2, are they even DC establishment?

      I don’t know what they are but both of them have been spokespeople for GOP organizations at one time or the other. Pathetic seems right.

      • bevwky says:

        Really? I honestly don’t follow/watch either of them enough to know their histories. I guess I thought Ann had always been a humorist or something like that.

    I usually don’t have a problem with Laura and Ann, but here they behaved and sounded like mean girls who’d rather date the hot guys, Perry and Romney.

    I’m keeping my powder dry and wallet closed til SP makes a decision, either way, I’m still not voting for Obama 😀

  4. In haste….

    Y’all seen this yet? Same poll place as last time.

    “there is now a new poll at that site which asks who started the Hillary 2012 talk. The winning choice thus far is grassroots Democrats.”

    Heh. Love the post title. Iirc, Coulter didn’t just pal around with Maher, she actually dated him. 😯
    (why is there no puke emoticon on wordpress?)

    If the GOP talking heads keep this up, they are going to create conservative pumas.

    • Coulter and Maher in bed, ew. That’s almost as gross as trying to imagine Rove and Brazile in bed together.

      Ugh. It was bad enough when I heard Ann dated Bob Guccione Jr.

      Ann and Laura got their first major TV exposure 15 years ago when MSNBC first went on the air. That little jam session could get them back on the network.

      This tease crap really gets on my nerve, especially since we all know what the prefix is when it applies to a woman. If people keep asking her if she’s running, she’s going to keep giving “coy” answers until she makes the decision. Rick Perry waited for months to get in the race. Did anyone call him a tease?

      Christie is a great governor to get tough with Teacher’s unions. But he’s also anti-coal, which puts him in line with Obama. It’s not exactly a winning formula with the GOP.

    The Tragedy of Red State

    Apparently not everyone agrees that Palin trashing is a good thing.

    The Palin Uncertainty Very good response to the “tease” pusgers.

    Judging the fortunes of political candidates from polls is a tricky business, especially those who have not formally declared yet. Is it a sign of strength or weakness that non-candidate Sarah Palin shows up in third place behind Rick Perry and Mitt Romney? Whatever that says about Palin, it’s probably a more significant data point for the declared candidates chugging in behind her. Personally, I would not find the notion that I could enter the Presidential race in third place to be depressing.
    Why are so many Palin fans dedicated to her, and why do they perceive so much of the criticism leveled at her from sources on the Right as unfair? Because she’s always out in front. She took a mountain of abuse in 2008, and then cheerfully began climbing the even bigger mountain behind it. Hers is often the first voice raised in response to attacks against conservatives, the Tea Party, and middle-class Americans… especially against the really vicious attacks. And when Palin herself is the target, as in the wake of the Tucson atrocity, too many conservative and Republican “leaders” are much too slow to speak up for her.

    Look at her response to James Hoffa’s vile remarks on Labor Day, and Barack Obama’s agreeable silence afterward. She didn’t just run to a camera and express her outrage. She wrote a very detailed, thoughtful response, as constructive as it was fiery, and posted it in the wee hours of the morning. Did you see anything like that from the declared GOP presidential candidates? Why not?

    • DeniseVB says:

      “How late is too late?” Ask Bill Clinton, he was an October baby 😀 AND, nobody ever heard of him outside of AR. I think Sarah’s using the Clinton playbook, but has a leg up on her name recognition.

    If all they said was true, it would make her as competent as the last two idiots we’ve had…since when does policy even MATTER when running for president.

    The presidential campaign is all about the beer and charisma…not necessarily in that order.
