Neil Cavuto’s Ann Coulter interview yesterday got some press. The Boston Globe’s Foon Rhee blogs about the interview…
Thursday night on Fox Business Network, Coulter suggested she might hold her nose and support McCain if he picked Romney as his running mate.
“I thought it was very gentlemanly for Mitt Romney to pull out right before McCain spoke at CPAC. It occurred to me then that if McCain weren’t a dunce, what he would do is take Mitt Romney as his vice president. That is the only way I think you could get me to vote for him. That’s my final offer.
Host Neil Cavuto made sure he heard right. “Still not very comfortable with the man at the top of the ticket. But the man at the top of the ticket said himself he doesn’t know much about economics. Maybe Mitt Romney could help with that. And moreover, it would put Mitt Romney in the lead for 2012, which he says he will be looking at again,” Coulter replied.
As did USA Today’s Mark Memmott
Neil Cavuto of Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network was smack in the middle of the latest brouhaha involving Ann Coulter again yesterday.
First, actor/director Clint Eastwood told Cavuto that Coulter and other conservative firebrands who say they won’t support Sen. John McCain are being “masochistic.” That’s Dirty Harry, folks, telling someone they’re getting pleasure from pain.
In Coulter’s case, Eastwood was referring in particular to her claim earlier in the week that she will campaign for Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton if McCain — who she thinks isn’t conservative enough — is the GOP nominee.
Then Cavuto had Coulter on his FBN show and she said the “only way” she’ll vote for McCain is if he makes Mitty Romney his running mate. “That’s my final offer,” Coulter said.
