When Ann Coulter joined Glenn on Monday’s radio program, she issued a pretty strong defense of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his actions as of late. While Ann has serious problems with the likes of Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), she defended Sen. McConnell because of the position he occupies. Because Sen. McConnell is in a leadership position, Ann explained that his job is not to defend people like Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) but rather keep his members unified.
Needless to say, Glenn did not buy Ann’s reasoning. And following the passage of a debt ceiling compromise that includes a $2 billion Kentucky kickback for a dam project, Glenn asked Ann to call into this morning’s radio program to see if she had changed her opinion.
“The name of the book is Never Trust a Liberal Over 3, Especially a Republican. Ann Coulter is on with us. She was on a couple of days ago and she was standing up for the gallant Mitch McConnell,” Glenn said. “Ann, a $2 billion dam that a liberal senator from California – you know how much they love dams in California and making sure they dam up the environment. [Sen. Dianne Feinstein] is the one that put in the bill that he wrote and that’s what we get out of this? Really? Are you still in love with Mitch McConnell?”
“Oh, I knew you were going to fall for this all new conspiracy theory,” Ann quipped. “Number one, he did not write it. Number two, if this dam bursts, you have basically another Katrina. This has been on the budget bill. This is not Mitch McConnell… This is not the building of a new dam like filling a hole. This is a dam that exists. People down river from it actually have radios because if that dam bursts, the entire town would be flooded. No United States member of Congress is going to want to be responsible for the next Katrina, and they will be if this is part of it.”
Ann’s tried to make the point that until Republicans take over the Senate, little can be accomplished, which is why Sen. McConnell finds himself in the situation he currently does. In her mind, winning elections is the most important thing.
“I think we should reflect on whether it was a good idea or a bad idea for you conspiracy theorists to be pushing Christine O’Donnell in Delaware, Richard Mourdock in Indiana,” Ann said.
“Wait a minute. What does she have to do with it,” Glenn asked exasperatedly. “Ann Coulter, you’re not coming on this program and calling me a conspiracy theorist, are you? Really?”
“Oh, no. Just people like you, but not you, Glenn,” Ann responded. “I still maintain Republicans were fantastic. I think it’s great what happened over the last three weeks. I think it branded Republicans as the anti-Obamacare party. We’re not just letting the left consolidate their game,” Ann explained. “The Democrats look awful. Do not believe the polls of ‘all adults.’ Those are irrelevant. This, I think, should be energizing Republicans. But how long do you want them to hit their heads against the wall? We can’t get anything done unless we have a majority in the Senate. So stop blowing Senate races for Republicans. That’s a big lesson from this.”
