Ann Coulter: Sequester forces CPAC to cut back on 300 pounds of speakers

We’re certainly not going to assume that Ann Coulter was taking a shot at New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was not invited to speak at this year’s CPAC gathering despite his popularity. That won’t stop these folks from assuming it for us, though.

Yeah, what did happen to Coulter’s Christie crush? In a question-and-answer session following her speech, Coulter explained that she’s now “a single-issue voter against amnesty, so he’s off my list.”

If a zing at Christie was Coulter’s opening shot, she was saving the big guns for the “War on Women,” which in her estimation the Democrats won a long time ago.

Coulter concluded by listing her picks for 2016 and repeating her single issue stance.

  • Scott Carroll

    OK, I don’t care who you are, that right there is funny.

  • kch50428

    This is CPAC, not a Republican event. When was the last time the NJ Gov stood up for a conservative ideal?

    • Cy

      That’s the problem with blue state Republicans. We get all excited when they get elected then they’re at best Democrat-lite.

    • milletime810

      Is union busting to the max not a conservative ideal?

      • Jillane Kent

        Union busting? No
        Asking Unions to fund their liabilities and practice fiscal discipline, like their private sector contemporaries? Yes

    • $40665324

      Christie is more fiscally conservative than any republican you can come up with.

      • Catchance

        Well, at least in his state, he is. That’s the reason we all loved him in the beginning… he didn’t cave to the teachers’ union or to the MSM or to the state dems’ budget.

        • Lisa Edward

          need big mouth and sooooo fat he need dance with wide ass moochele

      • Steve_J

        Not with U S taxpayer money. Remember the fit he through when the Sandy storm aid bill got slightly delayed becuase of the excessive pork included that had nothing to do with storm assistance? He blasted the House GOP, not the Democrat controlled Senate for passing the porker and not Obama for not following through on his pledge to “cut the red tape”.

        • grais

          Boehner never said he delayed (as you call it) the bill because of the excessive pork. You’re not understanding why Christie blasted Boehner.

          • Steve_J

            I do understand Christie didn’t care what was in the bill as long as he got what he wanted.

          • grais

            I won’t argue w/that, which is a different issue.

          • Jillane Kent

            Christie pushed for the bill to be passed with all due haste, a laughable month and a half after the storm. At the time, the much hyped “fiscal cliff” talks were occurring. One was just a tad bit more concerning than the other at that point.

          • grais

            You seem to have an idea that Christie did Nothing to get fed money for rebuilding for a month and a half. That’s absolutely not true.
            Fact is, the rest of the nation didn’t know anything about what he was doing until he made headlines for screaming about what Boehner did. The national media, and the rest of the country, weren’t interested in what he was doing for NJ until then.

          • W Randall

            The words “fact is”…are always followed by personal opinion and views, rarely actually “facts”

          • grais

            “always,” huh?
            “rarely,” eh?

          • W Randall

            “The rest of the nation didn’t know anything” the whole rest of the nation huh? What part of that is the your “FACT”?

          • grais

            Okay…”most” instead of “the rest”
            happy now, kid?
            oh, and key phrase : ” …about what he was doing…”


      • Jillane Kent

        Would you say he is more fiscally conservative than Rand Paul, Jim DeMint, Tim Scott, etc? The men I have listed where not/are not in favor of pork laden bills. Can you honestly make a case that Christie feels the same?

        • $40665324

          Saying it is one thing doing it is another. Christie has balanced the budget in NJ 4 years and cut taxes. Until the US Senate and Congress do the same, the answer to your question is YES.

          • Jillane Kent

            So you would argue that the balancing of a state budget is as simple as balancing a national budget?

          • $40665324

            It’s not as easy . I will say that if Congress and Senate had more members with Christie’s attitude of getting things done, we would be in better shape. There is a reason why others say governors make better presidents than senators and congressman.

          • Jillane Kent

            I will agree that a Governor is better suited for the job than a Hollywood starlet or a lawyer with no private market experience.

          • grais

            I agree with you. It’s also quite possible that were those Congressmen governors of states devastated by natural disasters, they’d have behaved much like Christie did, and vice-versa.

    • Judy B

      And that’s the point, weight reference is tacky.

  • milletime810

    I dont care what Ann Coulter or anyone else says Christie is still the best possible candidate the Republicans have right now.

    • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

      Christie will soon be a democrat…or two.

    • $40665324

      This petty crap cost the Republicans in 2012 If this continues, they will wake in November 2014 without control of Congress

  • Gloves Donahue, Jr.

    Chris Christie is the Northern version of Charlie Crist.

    And “300” pounds is being really kind.

    • Steve_J

      I was thinkng Christie hasn’t seen 300 lbs in a long, long time.

    • Lisa Edward

      HE IS 450 POUNDS and still counting

    • Miss Clairee

      And Christie looks like he has a dickie-do. When he looks down, his belly sticks out more than his dickie do!

  • Poopiekins22

    And that’s coming from Coulter who was a huge fan of Christie’s.

  • Mark Youngkin

    This is totally like Coulter, which is to say inappropriate. What does Christie’s size have to do with anything? You expect crap like that from liberals, not from the good guys.

    • Mike Stein

      This clearly means Coulter is not a good guy. Either that, or your entire premise is wrong.

    • Avey Owyns

      “You expect crap like that from liberals…”

      NO, not. at. all. Conservatives are just as vile and insulting towards democrat leaders who don’t look all that nice. It’s a running joke among conservatives that conservative women are hotter than liberal ones (quite annoying as I look NOTHING like the air-heads they have posing on Fox News) … and conservatives LOVE to make fun of Chris’ weight whenever he does or says something stupid.

      • awm48

        Airheads huh? Jealous much?

      • JWSR49

        Avey Owyns – It’s about time we give back just as vile as we get. Liberals can and do hurl all the despicable, vile, and hateful comments they want, and not one, gets even a 5 second soundbite on any LSM. A conservate makes even a joke, that can be even remotely twisted into something supposedly vile or racist ( their favorite subject ) and LSM will run it 100 times a day for weeks. Its been proven, in studies, that liberalism is a genetic defect.

      • JWSR49

        Avey Owyns – Air heads on fox, huh? Sounds like you must be a real looker! And, you wish you had half their brains and beauty.

      • Jillane Kent

        Considering many of the female talent at Fox possess terminal degrees that are greater than the general population, what metric do you use to base your “airhead” assessment?

  • NeoKong

    I love her.

  • Mike Stein

    Does Ann Coulter still do heroin?

    • TexSizzle

      Do you?

    • Jillane Kent

      I don’t know. Does Obama still snort coke and hang out with the choom gang?

      • Mike Stein

        Never did.

    • $23629333

      Folks, if you think this line is a knee-slapper, you should she one of his comments about Sarah Palin. He said, and I quote, “I’ve (f-word) a dozen women prettier than her.” That assertion – coupled with that avatar – is pants-wetting funny.

  • LN_Smithee

    I’m mostly over Ann Coulter, whose frequent salient points are too often lost in her venomous insults. Every time she says something on which all reasonable people might agree, she tosses a verbal grenade for the hell of it (calling John Edwards “a fa99ot,” referring to Katie Couric as “Eva Braun”, etc.) and makes it all about how outrageous she is. Maybe that sells books for her, but it repels people who might otherwise be open-minded.

    I mention this to preface my agreement with her about California, my lifelong home. She’s dead right: Reagan Country has been taken back by the reconquistadors, whose cause was adopted by Democrats. With few exceptions,Republicans in Sacramento are squishy as the day is long, always looking to be bought off; the last time Pubs were a one-vote majority in the Assembly, former Speaker (and future SF Mayor) Willie Brown “bribed” two of them (Paul Horcher, Doris Allen) into voting for Brown’s handpicked Dem successor. They both lost recall elections.

    Fiscal hawk Tom McClintock (now in Congress) could have been Scott Walker years ago, but too many conservatives bought into Ahnuld, the muscle-bound hack. He took one punch from unions in a special election and immediately surrendered, sliding to the center with ease unknown to a committed conservative.

    The GOP is RIP in CA, and I’m not sure what it is that can done about it now. Don’t let this happen to YOUR state, or America!

    • nc

      That McClintock loss was a real heartbreaker.

      • L.N. Smithee

        I still remember Schwarzenegger being interviewed by Hannity, who had thrown in the towel on McClintock because he didn’t have name recognition in a field of dozens who entered the recall election on a whim (Gary Coleman, porn star Mary Carey, Arianna Huffington, college students, pin-up model Angelyne, etc.).

        Ahnuld told Sean he was a disciple of Milton Friedman, and as a businessman, understood the importance of small government and fiscal responsibility. He said he was in favor of civil unions, but that he wasn’t going to thwart Proposition 22 (61% victory in 2000) and fight for same-sex marriage.

        He lied. That’s probably the best acting he’s ever done.

  • mdtljt

    Ms. Coulter’s acerbic wit can be off-putting at times, to be sure…but she hit 2 home runs with the bases loaded with her quips in re Ted Kennedy & Bill Clinton as tweeted above…AWESOME…because they’re only the truth!!!

  • warsaw

    this year’s Coulter one liner is probably a little too subtle for the average con to really have legs. Really won’t get her back on the best seller lists which, for her, are a long gone memory. The Ted Kennedy “kill” joke is just a thing of desperation. None of these kids have ever heard of Mary Jo Kopekne. It’s their granpa’s idea of snark just as Coulter is their granpa’s idea of a “babe.” Time is just whizzing by her at this point.

    • Jillane Kent

      My teenager learned about the Chappaquiddick incident both at home and at school by the 9th grade in AP American Government. I believe you are selling the collective intelligence of “kids” short in your rush to make a derisive comment. This point was not disparate Rather, it was biting and should a dichotomy between what liberals say and what they do.

    • nc

      Your comment about Mary Jo Kopekne was callous, even for a lib.

      • L.N. Smithee

        It might have been callous, but it’s largely true. The revisionists in charge of recent history — MSM journalists and leftists in the education industry — have transformed Kopechne from the pitied victim of a drunken neer-do-well lout who used his famous family’s pull to skate after taking her life into The Inspiration For Being The Greatest Leader Who Never Became President. When Teddy finally died, liberals sneered that Kennedy detractors (such as Andrew Breitbart) really didn’t care about her death, only that she was a convenient weapon to taint the Liberal Lion’s legacy. Kennedy biographer Adam Clymer – a journalist that George W. Bush memorably referred to as a “major league a$$hole” in an open mic moment – wrote that Ted’s “achievements as a senator have towered over his time, changing the lives of far more Americans than remember the name Mary Jo Kopechne.”

        The topper of them all is what was written by Melissa Lafsky at HuffPo, since deleted:

        Mary Jo wasn’t a right-wing talking point or a negative
        campaign slogan. She was a dedicated civil rights activist and political
        talent with a bright future….We don’t know how much Kennedy was
        affected by her death, or what she’d have thought about arguably being a
        catalyst for the most successful Senate career in history. What we
        don’t know, as always, could fill a Metrodome.

        Still, ignorance doesn’t preclude a right to wonder. So it doesn’t automatically make someone (aka, me) a Limbaugh-loving, aerial-wolf-hunting NRA troll for asking what Mary Jo Kopechne would have had to say about Ted’s death, and what she’d have thought of the life and career that are being (rightfully) heralded.

        Who knows — maybe she’d feel it was worth it.

    • WVS

      I’m 20. I know what Ted did. Not a fan of Coulter after some of the things she’s said in the past–which is exclusively a conservative trait, by the way, being honest about our own when they say something reprehensible–but she absolutely killed that one. (No pun intended.)

      “A long gone memory”? I guess, if you can’t remember what you were doing last October, when Mugged was #3 on the NYT Bestseller list.

  • radjahshelduck

    I heard the reason Governor Christie wasn’t invited to CPAC this year was because last time he appeared there, some joker pulled Christie’s finger and the whole damn building had to be evacuated.

    • Rabid

      Thanks!…now you owe me some screen wipes..

  • $35072932

    Hey, I’ll say it again: Obama’s Sequestration is hurting the nation!

  • Johnny Blade

    Ann is great… its a shame apparently there are so many candyass so called conservatives who bristle at her having a little verbal fun.. the circuit she runs and the liberal shows she goes on demonstrate a courage none you knocking her will ever get within shouting distance of. She wears armor of satirical cutting wit and I wouldn’t have her change a thing to placate any of you in the peanut gallery.

  • Renny

    I wanna know what Coulter was doing at the CPAC event? Christie cheerleader. Sure Ann, sure.

  • ClinkinKY

    Wait a minute. First Ann was against Romney…then for him…and for Christie…and now against him? Ann, you’re making me dizzy.

  • Elena0412

    So joking about the weight of grown man (who has complete control over it) is politically incorrect, but ridiculing a baby with Downs syndrome (Trigg Palin) is fine?

  • $23629333

    This from the woman who (tried to) embrace Chris Christie?

    Please folks, I beg you. If you’re a self-respecting conservative, do NOT buy any book Ann Coulter has written or may write in the future.
