Ann Coulter: Mormons okay, but those Catholics are just too Christian

That’s sorta what she is saying in between the lines –

Santorum is not as conservative as his social-issues credentials suggest. He is more of a Catholic than a conservative, which means he’s good on 60 percent of the issues, but bad on others, such as big government social programs. He’d be Ted Kennedy if he didn’t believe in God.

Santorum may not be a big spender as far as professional politicians go, but he is still a professional politician. In 2005, one of his former aides described him as “a Catholic missionary who happens to be in the Senate.”

The Catholic missionary was fantastic on issues like partial-birth abortion, but more like a Catholic bishop in his support for No Child Left Behind, the Medicare drug entitlement program (now costing taxpayers more than $60 billion a year), and a highway bill with a Christmas tree of earmarks, including the famous “bridge to nowhere.”

Maybe that’s why she doesn’t like Newt (because, honestly, they are two peas in the same destructive pod).

  1. Yes, but Coulter’s motto is “If your opponents aren’t spluttering in speechless outrage, you haven’t expressed yourself properly”. Considered discourse isn’t her aim. Hard to take her too seriously because of it.

  2. Wow. I haven’t read anything from Ann Coulter in over a year … I kind of wish that I still hadn’t.

    A friend of mine refers to Ann Coulter as the worst thing to happen to the Republican Party since Watergate.
