Are Hillary's chances diminishing by her comments that we should have empathy for our enemies? She suggests understanding their perspective will help us deal with them more effectively. In a typical display of trite, acerbic wit, Tucker Carlson asks Ann Coulter,
"How much do you respect and empathize with ISIS?"
Without missing a pernicious beat, she says,
"I liked her comments, I think it's a good start. Maybe we could get her to empathize with her enemies, the American Middle Class. We'll start with ISIS and move on to the poor middle class and working class Americans who can't get jobs because of the policies of the Democratic Party."
To describe the laughter as evil cackling would be kind. Both Coulter and Carlson were just tickled to death at Ms. Coulter's assertion that Hillary's nothing like her husband Bill, who would never say such foolish things. She equates Hillary with Joe Biden, because she's such a gaffe machine. Tucker fondly remembers when she said she was once poor, so that's why she hasn't driven a car or made her own breakfast in thirty years. Talk about being out of touch. I suppose he forgot the story of a "destitute" Willard and Ann Romney who had to sell stock just to pay for college. Oh the humanity!
Coulter feels that MSNBC believes we all "owe her" for snubbing her in 2008. Instead, we settled for "trophy wife Obama." Coultergeist claims that Hillary is just not likable, which is so antithetical to how we all feel about the lovable and warm Ann Coulter.
Elizabeth Warren's name comes up next. Carlson says, for once fairly accurately, that
there's an internal coherence to Elizabeth Warren's worldview that I don't see with Hillary Clinton.
But Coulter believes she is insincere.
If she meant what she said, and she doesn't, I'd agree with her. The phony attacks on Wall street as she's elevating Barney Frank and Chris Dodd as the ones fighting Wall Street. No no no. They're Wall Street's butt boys, maybe you haven't been paying attention, ELIZABETH.
It's so neat how she got a dig into Barney Frank with her brilliant use of alliteration. Butt boys, what a knee slapper! Then she proclaims that the best thing for Democrats is to let all the far left-wing nuts like De Blasio, Jerry Brown, Elizabeth Warren, Jim Webb and Bernie Sanders run for the Democratic nomination. For once, she doesn't want the parade of crazy candidates on the Republican side. We don't want Ben Carson or Carly Fiorina, as much as she loves them. She said, "I wouldn't have wanted Ronald Reagan to perform surgery." What a perfect analogy, how does she do it?
She'd only prefer a small handful of GOP candidates who must be a Senator or a Governor, preferably a Governor. The four people who are qualified to run? Willard Romney (again), Ted Cruz, Scott "goggle-eyes" Walker and her dream bully candidate, Chris Christie. Carlson thanks her for being there in what will be a very long campaign. I'm sure both Coulter and Tucker will make certain that it's a very painful campaign for all of us. I know Bill Maher will have her on his show to make sure it's even more agonizing for Progressives.
