Guess what folks, that wonderful fountain of Republican wisdom, Ann (hoof-in-mouth) Coulter, seems to now think that Newsweek magazine has become an "agent of al-Qaeda" by stating that Barack Obama has a lead on the top Republican presidential candidates.
Like of course, it's only with the aid of al-Qaeda that Democrats can actually win, it's not like they have to gerrymander districts, jam the phone lines of their opponents "get out the vote" operations or turn the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department into the voter suppression enforcement arm of the GOP or anything...
Yeah, that's right - those slow-bleedy defeato-crats are just ready to turn tail in Iraq and run -- and that's good for al-Qaeda, except for the fact that it seems it would completely ruin Zawahiri's diabololical master plan to "kill 200,000 Americans" in the giant venus fly-trap that Iraq has become. Of course that plan is just fine with DC Madam Gold Card client Dick Morris, who figures it's better to let them kill us over there, so they don't have to kill us here.
WASHINGTON (AP) - A recent Newsweek poll showing Democrat Barack Obama leading top Republican presidential hopefuls could have been made up and might help al-Qaida, conservative commentator Ann Coulter said in her latest verbal broadside.
Coulter, a best-selling author known for outrageous and often controversial statements, was asked Sunday on Fox News'"At Large" what she thought about the survey results.
"I think this is Newsweek doing more push polling for al-Qaida," she said, referring to campaign-season telephone calls to voters masquerading as neutral surveys but designed to build opposition to targeted candidates.
Asked by host Geraldo Rivera whether she thought Newsweek would make up the results, Coulter said, "Yes, I do," adding, "In polls where people are actually allowed to vote, Republicans do a lot better."
Coulter did not explain how the poll might help the terrorist group. Since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, some Republicans have argued that their party would do a better job of protecting the U.S. against terrorism than Democrats.
Americans right within their [terrorists’] arms’ reach” so that they have the opportunity to “kill Americans” there. He added that therefore, “they don’t have to come to Wall Street to kill Americans. They don’t have to knock down the Trade Center. They can do it around the corner, and convenience is a big factor when you’re a terrorist.”There you go, seems to me that ole Dick-head is probably right. Bush's plan is exactly the same as Zawahiri's plan - so how is Obama the one helping Al-Qaeda again?
By the way Ann, if you think Barack is doing well against the Republicans, just look what John "the faggot" Edwards is doing to them according to the 5/8 Newsweek Poll.
It is true that previous polls have shown Republicans such as Giuliani and McCain with a lead over Hillary Clinton (defeating her 49-40 and 46-41 respectively as of a 5/1 Quinnipiac University Poll) what I think Coulter can't wrap around her tiny little mind around is the fact that the public has now had a chance to see all the candidates following both the Democratic and Republican debates -- and their reaction hasn't been good for the Republicans.
Edwards (50%) v Giuliani (44%)
Edwards (52%) v McCain (42%)
Meanwhile Republicans in the Senate who are expecting to face voters in 2008 are clearly feeling the heat for this President's failed Iraq policy. It looks like they've come up with slow-bleedish timetable/benchmark plan of their own. "Wait 'til September Comes".
This Sunday, Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) said, “By the time we get to September or October, members are going to want to know how well this is working, and if it isn’t, what’s Plan B?”
The Washington Post reported in March, “During a White House meeting last week, a group of governors asked President Bush and Marine Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, about their backup plan for Iraq. What would the administration do if its new strategy didn’t work? The conclusion they took away, the governors later said, was that there is no Plan B. … Pace had a simple way of summarizing the administration’s position, Gov. Phil Bredesen (D-Tenn.) recalled. ‘Plan B was to make Plan A work.’”
Somehow I don't think that's the answer Boehner was looking for, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Zawahiri's going to like it just fine. Let's just not mention the fact that the place Democrats want to "retreat" to happens to be Afghanistan where they can make bin Laden and Zawahiri eat their own B.S. with tartar source.
Fact is, Republicans are gonna get so hammered in 2008, in Congress, in the Senate and the White House, it's almost not funny. Almost. It's right about time we start talking about the emerging Permanent Republican Minority.
