Ann Coulter Is Insane Over McCain, Supporting Hillary

Conservative elites are having their world turned upside down. They hate John McCain with a passion and yet he’s their best chance to keep the White House. What do they do?

The clip below is illustrative. Sean Hannity appears ready to swallow his long-time criticisms of McCain and vote for him in order to keep a Democrat out of the White House. Ann Coulter (I know, I know, we’re not supposed to pay attention to Ann Coulter) appears ready to… vote for Hillary?

So Clinton is more conservative than McCain, lies less than McCain, and is smarter than McCain? Is this some calculated Coulterian plot to undercut Clinton’s support? Whatever. I’m just interested in Ann Coulter’s head exploding on national television. Give it a month and it may actually happen.

Update: Dennis Hastert is joining the chorus of conservative voices against McCain.
