Ann Coulter Thrashes GOP for Throwing Away Easily Winnable Races on Hannity

Ann Coulter joined Sean Hannity Wednesday night to react to the big elections this week. And amidst a rather strong bout of Chris Christie-bashing, Coulter went after the GOP for throwing away easy races by running candidates that the conservative base loves but have zero chance of winning in a general election.

Coulter said, “Any Republican is better than any Democrat, and Republicans really have to focus on winning.” She cited the Virginia gubernatorial race in particular, saying Ken Cuccinelli might have had a better chance at winning if 1) the RNC had actually thrown its weight behind him, and 2) if Republicans hadn’t nominated E.W. Jackson, a fiery conservative preacher, for the position of lieutenant governor.

Hannity was particularly fired up about Christie, continuing the pile-on from his radio show, saying he loves criticizing members of his own party and “lecturing Washington” but he’s bit his tongue about President Obama and has plenty of problems of his own. Coulter was less critical of Christie, but did agree he has his issues and if the media had its way, Christie would be the “anointed” nominee.

Coulter kept insisting that “Republicans really need to concentrate on winning the way the Democrats do,” and instead of primarying their own members they should prioritize vulnerable Democrats first.
