The Coulter Primary

CREDIT:

After receiving an introduction from Mitt Romney, Ann Coulter took to the stage at CPAC, called John Edwards a “faggot”, and, later, apparently endorsed the Romney campaign. Why doesn’t this kind of thing ever seem to make media trouble for Republicans. I feel like any progressive even vaguely associated with the hint of impropriety faces massive pressure to “distance” himself, apologize, disavow his friends, etc.

Does Coulter speak for Mitt Romney? The list of Coulterisms is a long one and not, one would think, something Romney wants to embrace. But he’s been changing his mind about a lot of things lately, so maybe he’s now a Coulterite through-and-through. Doesn’t it seem like someone should at least ask?
