This is so sublimely asinine that I can’t even think of anything to write: I’m flabbergasted (I always wanted to use that word in a post). For that reason I’ll post her idiocy without comment and let you all discuss the depths to which the once credible Coulter has descended in her defense of the Mittster, whose stated positions make him only marginally less liberal than Obama (emphasis mine):
The chestnut about Mitt Romney being pushed on unsuspecting conservatives by “the Establishment” is the exact opposite of the truth. The Establishment, by any sensible definition, is virulently opposed to Romney — and for completely contradictory reasons.
The entire NFM (non-Fox media) hate Romney because he is the only candidate who stands a chance of beating Obama.
Meanwhile, many of the pillars of the conservative establishment also implacably oppose Romney. Fox News is neutral, but its second-highest-rated host, Sean Hannity, is anti-Romney, as is prominent Fox News contributor Sarah Palin — who has also offered herself up as a possible presidential nominee at a contested convention. (Wouldn’t a former candidate for vice president on a major party’s ticket be part of the Establishment?)
