Ann Coulter Is Insane Over McCain, Supporting Hillary

Conservative elites are having their world turned upside down. They hate John McCain with a passion and yet he’s their best chance to keep the White House. What do they do?

The clip below is illustrative. Sean Hannity appears ready to swallow his long-time criticisms of McCain and vote for him in order to keep a Democrat out of the White House. Ann Coulter (I know, I know, we’re not supposed to pay attention to Ann Coulter) appears ready to… vote for Hillary?

So Clinton is more conservative than McCain, lies less than McCain, and is smarter than McCain? Is this some calculated Coulterian plot to undercut Clinton’s support? Whatever. I’m just interested in Ann Coulter’s head exploding on national television. Give it a month and it may actually happen.

Update: Dennis Hastert is joining the chorus of conservative voices against McCain.

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
