Coulter Votes Simmons

Ann Coulter, universally despised by left wing Democrats, became a bit cuddlier when she demanded in one of her columns that Linda McMahon, the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate go back to wrestling, her spot on the ticket to be taken by Rob Simmons, who stopped campaigning officially after the Republican nomination convention folded its tent.

Coulter has called upon Sarah Palin, whose relationship with the Tea Party Patriot movement remains strong, to rally to Simmons’s side. In Connecticut, part of the movement seems to be drifting in Peter Schiff’s direction. The likelihood of Palin supporting Simmons is remote. But following Coulter’s column, it may now be safe for the Connecticut resident to return to UConn or Canada as a public speaker.

The odd thing is how she reveals herself as a partisan, rather than an idealogue in this instance... Not that Linda McMahon's the poster child for the conservative movement, but Rob Simmons' is about as right wing as Arlen Specter.

Perceptive of you to notice. Coulter lives here, but her understanding of Simmons may be deficient. The remedy for that is to read plenty of Dowd Muska columns. He’s now working for McMahon. I think the left is underestimating her.

The left’s take on the malefactors of great wealth here is interesting, don’t you think? Their distaste for the moneyed class has become little more than a nervous tick since the Democratic Party began to sweep the denizens of Wall Street into their web. In Fairfield County, Democrats outnumber Republicans. And Democrats have for a long while been hauling in more dough from the rich folk they plan to plunder than Republicans. I suppose McMahon is wealthier than Blumenthal, but beyond a certain point it just doesn’t matter. The McMahon’s earned theirs; Blumenthal married his. And it becomes inconvenient to slay McMahon with the money knife if at the same time you deliver a death stab to Blumie. One must tread very carefully here. I’d value your opinion about this.

What is Coulter's problem with Peter Schiff?

TRBA,

She thinks Simmons can more readily defeat Blumenthal. I don't know that she has a problem with Schiff. His primary challenge may be in trouble though. He might not have assembled enough proper signatures on his petitions. That petition drive was poorly organized.
