Coulter 'insanely jealous' of Sarah Palin

Washington (CNN) - Conservative columnist Ann Coulter has made some enemies in her years as a right-wing firebrand, but she's still jealous of Sarah Palin's ability to agitate the left.

"I especially love her for her enemies, I'm insanely jealous of that," Coulter said last night on MSNBC. "I love her for how she makes liberal heads explode."

Coulter said she thought Palin could win the Republican presidential nomination, but that the former Alaska governor shouldn't bother running.

"I think it would be a step down for her to run for president," Coulter said. "It's like saying Rush Limbaugh should run for president. She's huge. She has enormous power. She sends out a Twitter on death panels and everyone's talking about it. I think it would be crazy for her to run for president."

Coulter did throw her support behind one potential candidate – New Jersey governor Chris Christie.

"Christie is very articulate," Coulter said. "He has taken brave positions that no other Republican was willing to take, taking on the teachers' union. Amazingly, every once and a while a politician comes along and tells the truth, and he's one of them."

Earlier this week, Christie told an audience in Washington, D.C., that he had no intention to run for the nomination. Coulter said if Christie were to stay out of the race, she may support Mitt Romney.

"He may well be the best candidate if it's not my love Christie."

    The Progressive movement is dying. Thank God you idiots overreached like you always do, causing the typically-uninterested citizen to wake up. Once they see what you cowards represent, it's Buh-Bye...

    Why are conservative women in the mainstream media insane and out of touch with reality? Palin, Coultier, Bahmann, Hassleback, complete nutbars.

    Palin, Coulter, and the pet rock are very similar. They provide no substance but you can still find entertainment value if you look for it.

    Margie – Your statement (But then you know when you are raised by a republican family you don't stand a chance to be human.) is more close-miinded and idiotic than anything Ann, Michelle, or the rest of them have ever said. And to be sure, there has been a lot of stupidity shown by them.

    Sarah Palin is not interested in being President of the United States; however, she is very much interested in doing what she has found to be her niche and that is makin ludicrus statements that will recieve air-time, chat-time, and blog time. We say she is and "idiot", but in truth she is a "genius" because, when a fool can make others stand up and pay attention for an extended period of time at any given time, I call that "genius". Now if we who are claim to have intelligence stop entertaining her comments and blowing her up all over the internet, and tv then she would soon disappear into the horizon like the wind "Poof"! This comment I post is the first and last that I will ever make about Sarah Palin, for she is not worth the last 5 minutes it took for me to think of what to type, type it, and post it. Be Blessed everyone!

    Palin and Coulter are professed Christians who apparently do no subscribe to the Ninth Commandment (Do not bear false witness against your neighbor).

    I was really wondering who a chain-smoking chablis-swigging alkie right wing nutjob wanted for president.

    OK, this coming from the person who once claimed George W Bush will go down in history as the greatest president ever. I don't know who is dumber, Ann Coulter or Sarah Palin.

    Well, I got my laugh for the day with the comment from Bob from PA stating that women on the left can't stand strong independent women like Palin and Coulter. That's right Bob, that's why most of the strong women in history come from the right. You mean like Elenor Roosevelt, Hillary Clinton and the millions other. Oh please, I just can't stop laughing.

    People express surprise that Sarah Palin gets so much media exposure. Here's why: the media are in business to attract readers/viewers (e.g., internet, TV, etc) or to sell newspapers or magazines. Regardless of what you think of her intellect or leadership abilities, Sarah Palin is physically quite beautiful. Her photograph is as effective for drawing attention to a web site or a newspaper as that of a model for drawing attention to a beer or car advertisement. Publish a photo of Sarah Palin and people will stop to look because she is attractive. If the same publication publishes some of her comments (which are always outrageous), people may stop to read the comments, even if they disagree with them. They may even buy the newspaper or magazine. In short, Sarah Palin sells just like sex sells. Her looks, her outrageous comments attract readers/viewers and buyers. That's why she gets so much media attention. That's why she's making millions of dollars on the speaker tour. Will she run for president? Not a chance because, if she wins, her income will drop to $400,000 per year. That's a pittance compared to what she's making today. If Ann Coulter is jealous, it's because she (Ann) knows that she isn't even in Sarah Palin's league with it comes to physical good looks.

    Here's why she makes us normal people's heads hurt: you conzis insist you are the ones who 'follow Jesus' and are 'good,' but all your heroes seem to be disgusting psychotic liars like Coulter, Bachman, Palin and Limbaugh. Pretty obviously you laugh off the idea that lying is immoral, and you find "poison that judge" or "lock and load, shoot Gabbie Gifford" to be funny jokes. I know a lot of good people who vote GOP, and or I thought I did; perhaps ALL CONZIS are as evil as their heroes. Look at the posts from 'Big Arse' for example – that's not a good person talking there.

  14. Tired of the nonsense

    Palin is a pickled-brained moron.
    Coulter is a complete and utter hatemonger with no common sense.

    Coulter is also yesterday's news. The "woman" is a has-been and a never-gonna-be.
    Palin is just an idiot who has always been a has-been and a never-will-be.

    This is to John McCain. Now that you've seen what you have done. Whoever it was on your staff that suggested you take Palin as a running mate needs to have you walk up and bust them right in the mouth.

    These two need to get together for a remake of "Dumb and Dumber".

    Palin and Coulter certainly are birds of a feather. Both are stinking rich promoting themselves and their money-making empire.
    Nothing wrong with my guest, this is America. But don't pretend to care so much about this great country, blah blah blah. You are both just show biz folks doing an act. Coulter will say virtually anything to get in the papers, and after she says her statement, she pauses and looks like she is having an orgasm. She certainly gets off on herself.

    Me thinks Coulter is jealous of Palin's good looks. Most every transgendered person would kill to be that good looking.

    Coulter's right. Palin's right where she is most effective-complaining and smarting off, not actually governing and doing something about problems. For less than 2 years she governed an oil-rich state with a population less than Baltimore-and apparently didn't like it. The U.S. would be a heckuva lot harder.
