Ann Coulter – POWERless?

Once among the most powerful women in American politics, Ann Coulter has become arguably the most hated and most mockable woman in America.

In a remarkable interview for Politico, Coulter claimed: “I don’t care about power. I don’t care about credit.” She added, “I couldn’t care less,” asserting, “I intensely don’t care about that.”

That would be a first.

Coulter has always cared about power and always cared about credit. So much so that she has sought power most of her adult life and claimed credit where it is not due. Coulter is an elite’s elite who loves wielding power.

According to an ex-boyfriend of Coulter’s from the late 1990s, “She became infatuated with her exploding celebrity, and really got caught up in that Republican heroine thing, and forgot that it was shtick.” (My own observations these past twenty years validate his assessment.)

That remarkable Politico interview included this breathtaking claim, “I really just want to save America.” That is precisely what Coulter has been trying to do for two decades. To accomplish her goals, Coulter has – again, for two decades – attacked pro-lifers, Christians, and conservatives who even potentially stand in the way of her agenda.

Hence her growing irrelevancy within the conservative movement. Some organizations now shun her. Some friends now disown her. Why? Because Ann Coulter cannot be trusted.

Just this election cycle, Coulter 1) fervently campaigned for Paul Nehlen (WI), who lost in a stunning defeat; 2) had her own presidential candidate sabotage her paean to Trump; 3) published a book which failed to make the New York Times bestseller list despite all of the advantages inherent in releasing a pro-Trump book during a volatile election year; and 4) was humiliated at the Roast of Ann Coulter with Rob Lowe.

But if Coulter’s claim of not caring about power is true, well, then that’s a good thing for Coulter because she’s rapidly becoming powerless.
