Conservative Radical Ann Coulter Admits Republicans Caused Shutdown, Calls It “Magnificent, Run Beautifully”

ann-coulterYou know, I remember reading a story a while back (written by a moderate conservative) that claimed extreme right-wing radical Ann Coulter was actually a liberal who masquerades as a conservative to make them look bad.

And while that theory rates as nothing more than a humorous conspiracy theory, I understand why some moderate conservatives might think this when listening to this woman talk.

Case in point, her recent comments where she called the Republican handling of the government shutdown “magnificent” and claimed it was “run beautifully.”

Well, let me just show you her full comments and I’ll go from there:

“The shutdown was so magnificent, run beautifully.  I’m so proud of these Republicans, and that is because they have branded the Republican party as the anti-Obamacare party.”

On what planet was that travesty for the Republican party “run beautifully?”  You know how insane you would have to be to really believe that Republicans came out of that shutdown looking good?

Not only that, just who in the hell wasn’t fully aware that Republicans were the “anti-Obamacare” party?  Were there some Americans that were a little confused about that?

They’ve been established as the “anti-Obamacare” party for 4 years — they didn’t need to shut down the government in order to prove it.

But what Coulter also essentially admitted with her foolish comments was that Republicans were the ones to blame for the whole thing.

So while individuals like Ted Cruz have continued to perpetuate this ridiculous idea that Republicans weren’t the ones to blame for the shutdown, even though many within their own party have blamed people like him for the government being closed, Ann Coulter seems to agree with liberals (for once) that Republicans were indeed the ones who caused the shutdown.

However, it’s completely laughable to think that the shutdown was anything but a total disaster for the Republican party.

Sure, some may simply say she’s a right-wing media personality trying to spin the shutdown in a positive light for the GOP, which might be true.  Still, if that’s the case, that just goes to show how small-minded and easy to control conservative voters are.

Yes, some of the “we hate the government” conservatives undoubtedly cheered the fact that the government was shut down by tea party Republicans.  However, just like many liberals are embarrassed by the glitches plaguing the Affordable Care Act marketplace website, so too should conservatives be embarrassed at the fact that their party shut down the government for no other reason than to stage some kind of pathetic political stunt.

    Amazing. The business owners who don’t want poor people to be able to see a doctor must be so powerful that the Republican party is willing humiliate itself on a profound level to appease them, despite the fact that it’s a disaster otherwise.

    • fast eddie

      wait its not your reg. business owners, (sure there are some wacko’s out there) but it is the insurance company’s that don’t want ACA because it will cut into there profits, they spent 55 million dollars to try and stop it

      • saltcay

        Which makes absolutely no sense as the ACA will put just that many more customers in the health insurance market.
        That would be like a grocery store being against the food stamp program, since it would mean that many less customers getting groceries.

    I have yet to figure out why Ann Coulter is famous. To me she is the Kim Kardashian of Politics. Kim’s only contributions to mankind 1) she is really annoying 2) she has a big ass. Ann Coulter is 1) really annoying and 2) is a big ass.

    • Kojo

      She is NOT famous. She is notorious. Anyone can write controversial garbage in the form of a book but it takes a conservative audience to elevate crap to a level of consumerism. I wouldn’t cross the street to piss on her if she were on fire. I would probably help her out if she wasn’t.

    • gemma liar

      kim is sexy as all hell…despite her idiocy. coulter is about as sexy as glen beck and rush Limbaugh. Michelle ” I hate my life for non tits” malkin is another scrunge bucket. I love these regressive females: totally unappealing ( ‘cept mommy Kodiak palin,,,I love that females look)

      • Skyhollower

        A friend of mine says Coulter is what Skeletor would like like if he did drag. I think he might look better.

      • gemma liar

        she couldnt get laid in a prison

  • Pamela Casey Nagler

    I am trying to teach myself to simply “look away” when her name, her opinions, her face is publicized. I suggest we all try this even though it is difficult. Our excuse is our curiosity. I also suggest if Ann Coulter hates government so much she should start living off the grid. No roads or air travel for you, Ann Coulter -all built, subsidized or regulated with government dollars. Grow your own food, hunt your own animals – you wouldn’t want to eat anything federally regulated. Find an old barn, hunt rabbits like the Una- bomber. Write your diatribes and walk them to the post office – oh, wait, that would be using another government service. Ann Coulter, you are ridiculous.

    • A Gill

      i do the same “look away” thing with sarah palin, Pamela. i will not click on any article with her name attached. not no way not no how.

  • GLT777

    Oh, admit it. Sometimes it is fun to watch Coulter go on one of her rants. She gets herself so worked up, she can’t even stay on topic. And you think, today is the day when she completely loses it and falls to the floor, frothing and chewing on the carpet.

    • aname

      LOL! LOL! That’s EXACTLY what I think when I find her on TV.

  • BigRedEO

    Why does Ann Coulter have an Adam’s Apple? Hmmm

    • gemma liar

      might have adams breasts

      • Matt Pantages

        she’s got the neck of a giraffe, the mouth of a large mouth bass, the body of a 12 year old boy, and the intellect of a doorstop.. I just thank god, she hasn’t reproduced..

  • Alan Foxman

    The GOP has established itself as the anti-Obama-anything party since the day after he was elected in 2008.

    • pennyroyal

      they want a white president. They’ll get it in Hillary Clinton!

      • gemma liar

        the republicans did get something with the govt shutdown,,,,they got 8 yrs of hillary

  • CM

    While i also try to ignore anything ann coulter, says i feel i must share this comment (not mine) that i read somewhere which explains exactly why she/it/they feel it was a success:

    “The party of disappearing government is never really disturbed about the results, as long as they’ve accomplished that trick, to some degree – no matter who in the lower 99 gets hurt. As former GOP functionary Mike Lofgren has confirmed, the goal is making government dysfunctional. Even if they look bad doing it, it’s not like they’re actually trying to grow their ranks. Gerry-mandering, voter suppression and corporate tag sales will take care of that.

    A broken government is what they’re after – bunker-mentality, seemingly irrational, shoveling the money upward. “See, we told you government doesn’t work. Privatize this.”

    A functioning one will get them nowhere.”

  • Tamaracboy

    When you say “Crazy Republican” (yes I know that is redundant) she is always the first name that comes to mind. Congratulations ! on stretching your 15 minutes.

  • stephen

    I only take issue with one thing. “just like many liberals are embarrassed by the glitches…” I am not embarrassed by them. I am disappointed, because I want it to work. Embarrassed implies that this is some kind of game and my side just lost a round, damn, we blew that one, now we look like idiots, we have to come back strong blah blah blah. This is not a GAME. This is my life. I’m not embarrassed. Disappointed, frustrated, yes but still hopeful, certainly not embarrassed.

  • Jeremy Noyes

    I love her. I also love Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh. I also adore Karl Rove, George W Bush and Dick Cheney. Lets not forget John Boehner, Rand Paul, Mitch McConnell and the entire cast and crew of Fox News. I can’t think of a better group of idiots to lead the Republican party and spread their transparent propaganda. Imagine if they could find another Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt. Dwight Eisenhower or Ronald Reagan??? They have gone off the rails as far as a successful conservative party and damage their brand every single day. I would venture to say that they would be hard pressed to accept Lincoln and his progressive ideas. No, I love the current Republican party. Their idiocy keeps me warm at night.

    • gemma liar

      u forgot my fave!!!! michelle ” no tits and hating her life over it” malkin

  • Lparault

    You don’t have to be insane to believe the GOP came out of the shutdown looking good…you simply have to be a Republican. They have their own definitions for the entire English vocabulary. They manufacture their own reality. They make me remember all I read in college about the fall of the Roman Empire…rampant, mass delusional, psychosis.

  • Sheri Meckler

    Unfortunately, it’s not the dumbest thing she’s ever said – cause she’ going
    to keep on talking!

  • Ok,not really

    I’d still hit it. Her and Sarah Palin at the same time. It would be like watching two velociraptors fight over the same sausage.

    • gemma liar


      • aname

        Oh come on man, I bet Ann screams for Cheney when she orgasms… It would be a hoot!

  • s s


  • hermanprovi

    Ann and Michelle, two of the devils advocates!

  • hermanprovi

    Not all republican women are as masochistic as A. Coulter. She spews excrement and loves the feedback!

  • Emily Edwards

    This woman seriously scares me. Or scares me if she’s serious.
    She might also be a member of a conspiracy within the Republican Party to keep women looking like idiots. The trifecta of her, Michelle Bachmann and Sarah Palin is enough to make any good feminist weep blood.

  • Linda Starr-Spires

    What do you expect from a WOMAN who actually blames all the troubles in America on WOMEN GETTING THE VOTE ! (leading many to question if she really IS a woman…)

  • gailillly

    oH LORD the last thing she should do is take a picture with her head bent backwards, that adam’s apple is huge. I think she is a he/she. She is not famous and I couldn’t care less if I ever saw again. When she is on the TV I changed the station so she means nothing to me but a big fool and a Zero. Hell she don’t even have a job as no one can stand her.

  • I bet you a dollar she’s a crackhead. Too many tell-tale signs to me.

  • Excalibur1

    One thing the Left rarely does is actually read Ann Coulter’s books. She is probably the best political writer out there , either left or right. I rarely see anyone take her points and try and refute them, but instead, attack her as a person.

  • ArjayW

    Why oh why does *Anyone* listen to this hag’s drivel – I mean, really…
