Ann's agony (and ours, too)

OK, Ann, it’s time to put your money where your big mouth is.

Appearing Jan. 31 on Fox News’ “Hannity & Colmes” show, right-wing blowhard Ann Coulter -- who has made a career out of bashing Democrats in general and liberal Democrats in particular – said, unequivocally, that she will campaign for Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton if John McCain is the Republican nominee for president. (Her promise comes 46 seconds into the YouTube clip that appears below.)

Coulter doesn’t just say she dislikes McCain, as many conservatives do; she goes a step further and promises “I will campaign for her (Clinton)” if the GOP nominates McCain.

Well, Ann, it’s 1:30 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 8, 2008. Mitt Romney quit the Republican race about 13 hours ago. Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul remain as GOP candidates, but they have so few delegates that it’s mathematically impossible for either of them to get nominated. So, for all intents and purposes, Sen. John McCain of Arizona is the Republican Party’s 2008 nominee to become president of the United States.

That being the case, I, Sen. Clinton, the Democratic Party and TV news cameras all along the campaign trail eagerly await the appearances that you surely will begin making on behalf of your now-favored candidate.

The irony, of course, is that America's hatred for you runs so deep that if you campaign for Clinton, people probably will vote for McCain just to spite you.
