Best-selling author and top conservative commentator Ann Coulter says John McCain’s choice of Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate has finally won the Arizona senator her support — sort of.
In an exclusive interview with Newsmax.com, Coulter reacted to the emergence of Palin on the national political scene with enthusiasm — and her biting wit.
When Newsmax asked her opinion of the treatment being accorded Palin by the mainstream media, the feminists and the left, she told us: “The last woman I saw treated this badly by the mainstream media was . . . let’s see now . . . oh yeah — me.”
Newsmax: Are they after her because they fear she'll turn the tide?
Coulter: No. They’re after her because she’s already turned the tide. The feminists just figured out that Sarah Palin has debunked everything they’ve believed for the past 40 years. Plus, they’re bitter, dried-up hags and she’s a major hottie.
Newsmax: Do you think her presence on the ticket could be the winning factor for the GOP?
Coulter: Obama just dispatched Hillary [Clinton], [Arizona Gov. Janet] Napolitano, and [Kansas Gov. Kathleen] Sebelius — or as I call them, the three scorned VP women — out into the countryside to attack her. What do you think?"
Newsmax: Has McCain's naming her to be his running mate softened your opinion of him?
Coulter: Absolutely! If he keeps this up he’ll have to register as a Republican soon.
Newsmax: How did you react to McCain's acceptance speech?
Coulter: He had me with Palin. So after the first "My friends," I turned it off and re-read Palin’s speech.
