CPAC May Come Back to Haunt Romney

by Sean Hackbarth

On Ann Coulter dreaming of an America where women don’t vote Garance Franke-Ruta writes,

I would like to see that quote, “If we took away women’s right to vote, we’d never have to worry about another Democratic president. It’s kind of a pipe dream, a personal fantasy of mine,” as the header on GOTV mailers along with pictures of Coulter and whichever candidates were stupid enough to associate themselves with her earlier in the year. I would like to see it on television ads.

The idea that today’s G.O.P. leaders are craven and idiotic enough to associate themselves with someone who could say such a thing will catapult women to the polls.

There’s one Presidential candidate who got a little too close to Coulter at this year’s CPAC: Mitt Romney. In her infamous speech she said he was “probably our best candidate.” To be fair the Romney campaign stepped away from Coulter’s gay slur.
