    She once had cast iron… well… courage. Now she's backing the "safe" GOP candidate.

    There is no conservative writer that I admire more than Ann Coulter. She's smart as hell and, more importantly, she is courageous. She has always been willing to write what other conservatives believe but don't have the guts to say in print. She has never played it safe and has certainly never adjusted her opinions for the sake of conforming to the conventional wisdom of Old Guard Republicans. In 2008, for example, she declared that she would not merely vote for, but actively campaign for Hillary Clinton if the Republican Party were foolish enough to nominate John McCain for President: "If you are looking at substance rather than if there is an R or a D after his name, manifestly, if he's our candidate, than Hillary is going to be our girl, because she's more conservative than he is."

    But something has happened to Coulter. I don't have firsthand knowledge that she was kidnapped by RINO Team Six and taken to an offshore medical facility where she was forced to undergo a gruesome surgical procedure, but many of her recent columns suggest that something of the sort must have occurred. What else could explain her endorsement of Mitt Romney? Once immutable where her core convictions were concerned, she has executed a vertigo-inducing volte-face in order to promote a brazen opportunist whose positions on the big issues were the opposite of hers before he began running for President. She relentlessly trashes Republican "moderates" like McCain, yet now supports a candidate who makes the Arizona Senator look like Barry Goldwater by comparison.

    It first became apparent that something awful had happened to Coulter last November, when she wrote a column asking "If Not Romney, Who? If Not Now, When?" In this surreal effusion, she claimed that the media were "pushing Newt Gingrich" and other alternatives to Romney "because they are terrified of running against him." This, as many pointed out at the time, was preposterous. The only thing that terrifies the media about Romney is that he might not get the GOP nomination. This is the man they want to run against. Unlike Coulter, the media and the Obama reelection team know that Romney can be easily portrayed as a Wall Street parasite whose only memorable "accomplishment" as the Governor of Massachusetts was the enactment of a health "reform" law that renders him unable to credibly denounce ObamaCare.

    Which brings us to the latest evidence that Coulter has been somehow altered. Her inexplicable support for Romney has led her beyond being merely wrong about his chances in the general election to writing things that are either deliberately disingenuous or genuinely ignorant. The latest example of this tragic development is a column titled, "Three Cheers for RomneyCare." As its title suggests, this piece actually defends the Massachusetts "universal" health law. When I first read it, I could hardly believe such horse manure had emanated from Coulter's keyboard. The column opens with this howler: "If only the Democrats had decided to socialize the food industry or housing, RomneyCare would probably still be viewed as a massive triumph for conservative free-market principles -- as it was at the time."

    I have wondered the same thing. I like Coulter and was surprised when she backed Christie. He is good but not very conservative. I guess she has bought into the belief Romney is the only Republican who can beat Ododo.On the bright side, maybe Mitt will make her his Press Secretary.

    I agree. I was not criticizing Christie, I like him. I was just saying I was stumped by her support of him.

    I read the earlier article today. Ive always loved Ann.

    But somebody had to write this ... as we're all wondering and scratching our heads at this.

    Maybe a chemical imbalance ... early combo alzheimers/ dementia?

    She is clearly circling the land of nuts and fruit ... from a conservative prospective. Are unicorns and utopia far behind? Or is she already there? How in the world do you go from being a staunch Reaganite to a Romulous/ Cristy Creme moonbot?

    I just finished reading her last book a couple weeks before she began her leftward lurch. To go from reading classic Coulter to reading her RINO tripe left me stunned.

    I'll argue that it's not just Ann, Laura Ingram seems pretty hell bent on getting Romney elected too, as have other Conservative talk hosts and commentators.

    I noticed that too. Hard to understand. What a shame. As I mentioned elsewhere, if the lemmings are going to charge off the cliff, whereby taking us with them I say quick ... grab a parachute!

    At least I'm in good company. I'm with Ann and Laura.
    Mitt has a quality about him that I think will surprise everyone.
    I don't see in him as the great leftist Obama-lite rino that y'all do.
    He strikes me as more of an independent that is well grounded.
