Stunning Coulter-Nehlen Defeat

They came, they campaigned, they lost. In a landslide.

Coulter-Nehlen

Leading up to his spectacular defeat, Paul Nehlen, with Ann Coulter close by his side, sought to unseat Paul Ryan (R-WI). (Never mind that Coulter had previously defamed the entire Badger State.)

Nehlen/Coulter attempted to latch on to Donald Trump’s nonexistent coattails and ride the “anti-establishment” Trump Train to victory.

Through Ann Coulter’s Eyes

Coulter’s tweets tell the story. With bold confidence, Coulter promoted Nehlen as a surrogate for Trump and a savior in miniature for the nation. (Yes, she likened Nehlen to a savior as she had Trump.) For weeks, Coulter championed inevitable victory for Nehlen. He would be as big a winner as Trump.

Coulter tweeted:

Notice, Coulter called for Wisconsinites to “dump Paul Ryan,” saying “It will be historic.” She noted, “In 2010, only 4 of more than 390 House members lost in primaries.” Obviously, she was confident that Ryan would lose his primary battle in 2016.

Coulter tweeted:

In the midst of the primary, Coulter observed, “Ryan’s 88.6-point win in 2014= largest victory margin in a contested primary since 1950,” seemingly confident that Ryan’s imminent defeat would be similarly epic. So much for hubris.

Nehlen lost in a 68.2-point defeat.

The Donald has proven he has no coattails and the Trump Train is really a personality cult as opposed to a political movement (like the Tea Party) built around a clear set of principles.

Befuddled, Coulter lashed out at the media. From the onset, Nehlen’s campaign enjoyed being favorably compared to David Brat’s. Why? Underdog Brat ousted House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in 2014. Nehlen’s failure to perform (does he have little hands, too?) naturally made news.

Coulter tweeted:

Coulter continued:

Ryan04

So, Coulter and Nehlen’s campaign deliberately raised the expectations bar to an “historic” victory comparable to Brat’s in 2014, one which Coulter herself suggested would also be like Ryan’s own “largest victory margin” in 2014, and, yet, Coulter rails against the media because she lost?

Coulter was wrong. Again. (Does anyone else remember the magnificent Romney victory Coulter predicted in 2012?)

Perhaps Coulter fears that, despite being Trump’s consigliere and biggest shill, her irrelevancy will continue to grow. Perhaps Coulter realizes that she had tied herself and her future to Trump’s success and that his failure would be hers as well.

Indeed, Coulter fears Nehlen’s defeat prefigures Trump’s and that she will be the biggest loser of them all.

Ann Coulter: Wisconsin Sucks

In her latest column,[1] Ann Coulter called Wisconsin a “mean-as-a-snake” “Soviet” state.

Wisconsin Sucks

Her evidence?

Point One: Donald Trump lost. (We could just stop right there. Just like Trump, anyone opposed to her or her agenda is ipso facto evil.)

Point Two: Thugs from across America joined with teachers unions to besiege and takeover the state capitol in 2011.

Coulter fails to explain her non-sequitur, namely, how liberal activists from across the nation are representative of conservatives running a Republican convention.

Moreover, Coulter concludes that those  very same thugs represent the whole of Wisconsin. How, then, does Coulter account for Gov. Scott Walker’s tremendous popularity in his home state. Walker won three elections there!

Point Three: Because Wisconsin has “virtually no immigrants,” they cannot understand the reality contained in Trump’s message and her latest book.[2]

It would behoove Coulter not to disparage “cantankerous Wisconsin” for – horror of horrors – disagreeing with Coulter. Moreover, Coulter’s own opening paragraph cites “Trump’s rough style,”[3] one which a growing number of conservatives deplore. There is more to a Trump candidacy than a phony immigration platform.[4]

Coulter once said, “All countries suck compared to America.”[5] Now, apparently so does Wisconsin.

Coulter should look in the mirror before casting any more stones!
