Oh, it’s on now. The two queen bees of conservatism, Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin, are going at one another — and fighting over Sarah Palin. Coulter went on TV recently and took what some are calling a swipe at Palin by saying that if the Republicans nominated a “novelty candidate” as vice president, it will remind people of Palin. And Malkin is hopping mad about it:
“‘Novelty candidate’ means an outside-the-Beltway, outside-the-establishment public servant who speaks from the heart, lives political and personal life on her own terms, and embodies all that Coulter’s best Hollywood friends like misogynist Bill Maher hate,” Malkin wrote on Monday. “Sometimes, the war on conservative women isn’t just being waged by the Left. This is a form of political fragging. Shame.” …
“She is questioning the sincerity of countless conservative women across the country who are sick and tired of being smeared by liberal cowards hiding behind the humor card,” Malkin wrote in an email. “Her most recent statements call into question her past praise for Palin and her past participation in a documentary that explicitly takes on liberal hate of conservative women. Opportunism? Schtick? I know I am not the only one questioning her. I’m just one of the few willing to question her out loud.”
The blind fighting the blind, defending the dumb.
