Little Annie Coulter (Needs Friends)

With absolutely no sense of irony, Little Annie Coulter begins with a denigration of the State of Wisconsin.

...can we stop referring to Wisconsin as “Midwestern nice”? That’s all we’ve heard since Ted Cruz beat Donald Trump there: Wisconsinites are just so nice, they couldn’t abide Trump’s rough style.
Does anyone remember the whole taking over the capitol thing? How they nearly recalled a sitting governor a few years ago? Remember the protesters fighting with cops, rounds of arrests in the rotunda, the drum circles and chanting? How about the midnight raids on citizens for supporting the “Wisconsin Budget Repair Bill”?....

Yes, we remember that, Annie, and Ted Cruz stomped all over Trump precisely because the grownups in Wisconsin rejected the Trump-tactics you describe above.  Whining is for children, Annie.  Grow up.

Reality check:  Little Annie couldn't draw a crowd here a few years back, so her appearance was cancelled.  That has more to do with her histrionics than any election, anyway.

Next, Little Annie appeals to the mob.

...what people mean by THE RULES is that there is no RNC rule specifically prohibiting a state party from giving all the delegates to a single nominee, even if that is demonstrably at odds with the will of the voters....

Little Annie stamped her widdle feets, and contradicts her theory in the next sentence:

...The state parties are given a lot of discretion...

Yup.  That's to keep mobs from running the Party, which is actually a membership organization.

Finally, Annie:  this is no Student Council election.  This is serious business, not a beauty contest.  Those who "think" that the President can order troops to violate their oaths, or who "think" that education and housing are Federal functions, or that "making deals" is what the Presidency is all about need not apply.

Blowhard egomaniacal TV stars have to obey the rules, Annie.  Get over it.

Evidently, you have persuaded few to your take candidate of choice.
Maybe you should immigrate elsewhere?

On Saturday, April 9, Colorado had an “election” without voters. Delegates were chosen on behalf of a presidential nominee, yet the people of Colorado were not able to cast their ballots to say which nominee they preferred.

A planned vote had been canceled. And one million Republicans in Colorado were sidelined.

In recent days, something all too predictable has happened: Politicians furiously defended the system. “These are the rules,” we were told over and over again. If the “rules” can be used to block Coloradans from voting on whether they want better trade deals, or stronger borders, or an end to special-interest vote-buying in Congress—well, that’s just the system and we should embrace it.

Let me ask America a question: How has the “system” been working out for you and your family?

I, for one, am not interested in defending a system that for decades has served the interest of political parties at the expense of the people. Members of the club—the consultants, the pollsters, the politicians, the pundits and the special interests—grow rich and powerful while the American people grow poorer and more isolated.

No one forced anyone to cancel the vote in Colorado. Political insiders made a choice to cancel it. And it was the wrong choice.

Responsible leaders should be shocked by the idea that party officials can simply cancel elections in America if they don’t like what the voters may decide.

The only antidote to decades of ruinous rule by a small handful of elites is a bold infusion of popular will. On every major issue affecting this country, the people are right and the governing elite are wrong. The elites are wrong on taxes, on the size of government, on trade, on immigration, on foreign policy.

Why should we trust the people who have made every wrong decision to substitute their will for America’s will in this presidential election?

Here, I part ways with Sen. Ted Cruz........ read more at link.

Well, as Levin has demonstrated, if Trump-the-Demagogue wants "one man one vote," then Trump-the-Demagogue will have to cede around 800 delegates to Cruz, Rubio, Kasich, (

The Colorado party makes the rules, and Trump-the-Demagogue didn't know about them, and didn't care. This is not a Presidential candidate; he's just another TV star born with a silver spoon in his mouth.

The word is "emigrate," Trumpkin.

The Donald lives on another planet known as New York City. He is not welcome here.
