the anti-mccain offensive continues

7 Feb

On Monday neocon hack Bill Kristol wrote in the NYT about how Republicans must get behind John McCain in a general election: –

But I’d say this to them: When the primaries are over, if McCain has won the day, don’t sulk and don’t sit it out. Don’t pretend there’s no difference between a candidate who’s committed to winning in Iraq and a Democratic nominee who embraces defeat. Don’t tell us that it doesn’t matter if the next president voted to confirm John Roberts and Samuel Alito for the Supreme Court, or opposed them. Don’t close your eyes to the difference between pro-life and pro-choice, or between resistance to big government and the embrace of it.

And don’t treat 2008 as a throwaway election. If a Democrat wins the presidency, he or she will almost certainly have a Democratic Congress to work with. That Congress will not impede a course of dishonorable retreat abroad. It won’t balk at liberal Supreme Court nominees at home. It won’t save the economy from tax hikes.

However, it appears that vitriolic rent-a-bitch blowhard, Ann Coulter, isn’t listening: –

Nominating McCain is the gesture of a desperate party.

Republicans are so shell-shocked and demoralized by the success of the Bush Derangement Syndrome, they think they can fool the voters by nominating an open-borders, anti-tax cut, anti-free speech, global-warming hysteric, pro-human experimentation “Republican.” Which is to say, a Democrat.

[…]

He opposes ANWR and supports the global warming cult, even posturing with fellow mountebank Arnold Schwarzenegger in front of solar panels.

The only site that would have been more appropriate for Schwarzenegger in endorsing McCain would have been in front of an abortion clinic.

Nice.

They really are desperate for Romney to win the nomination (they have already done a pretty good character assassination of Huckabee). But the GOP hackery’s obsession with Mitt doesn’t stand up to scrutiny. Romney has never been a card-carrying rightwinger. He’s flipped and he’s flopped on all the major Republican touchstone issues, and proven, even during this campaign, that he’ll say and agree to anything if it means victory. FFS, Romney was Governor of Massachusetts only a year ago, to the Republicans that should make him about as electable as a half-French, homosexual Che-lovin’ Marxist. Go figure.
