Multiple Choice Mitt’s number one fan K-Lo explains that there’s no need for her candidate to disavow Ann Coulter’s “faggot” remarks because it was just Ann Coulter being Ann Coulter and “is anyone suprised Ann said something she really shouldn’t have?”
Well, no, nobody’s surprised. That’s what makes Romney’s behavior all the more outrageous. If you choose to affiliate yourself with a respectable politicial pundit, and then that pundit goes on and does something crazy and out-of-character, I think you can reasonably say you couldn’t have predicted that and it has nothing to do with you. Coulter, though, is well-known for this crap. But Romney decided to embrace it anyway. Because now that he’s reinvented himself as a wingnut, I guess he figures he should be the wingnuttiest wingnut he can be.
