    Conservative commentator Ann Coulter lashed out at top figures in the GOP on Monday, arguing that Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.) couldn’t be Republican presidential candidates in 2016.

    For one, they’re both too short, she argued to Sean Hannity of Fox News, jokingly comparing them to the height of her iPod.

    Apart from questions of their height, however, Coulter took particular issue with Paul’s positions on key civil liberties and social issues.

    “Paul, no — this anti-drone stuff,” Coulter said, dismissing the senator’s 13-hour stand against vaguely defined drone powers as frivolous. She went on to playfully suggest that liberal actress and activist Jane Fonda, whom Paul invoked during his filibuster, would be a great target for a Hellfire missile.

    Coulter continued, claiming that “after the election [Paul’s] two objectives were legalizing pot and amnesty for illegals.”

    “No, he’s not our candidate,” she declared.

    Coulter appears to be referring to an interview Paul gave with Politico in the wake of the 2012 elections, in which the senator said he’d support loosening marijuana penalties and work toward a compromise on a comprehensive immigration plan. He gave a more detailed framework of that plan earlier this month.

    And over the weekend, Paul explained his stance on pot laws.

    “I don’t want to promote that but I also don’t want to put people in jail who make a mistake,” Paul said. “There are a lot of young people who do this and then later on in their twenties they grow up and get married and they quit doing things like this. I don’t want to put them in jail and ruin their lives.”

    You do know she’s a conservative shock-jock and not an elected Republican, right?

    Kinda like how the lefties have Bill Maher.

    ^Yeah, when they were on the same show, she accused Maher of being sexist for saying that Michelle Bachmann was crazy.

    If Coulter and Chris Christie stood side by side, they’d look like the number ten.

    Rand Paul’s rant about the toilets was funny.
    I had a house built in 1992 that had the old 3.5 gallon toilets.
    A government program aimed at saving water gave me $50 each to replace them with the 1.6 gallon models, and I bought really good ones that worked.

    Ehhhh, wrong! It was the Conservatives who made gay marriage and issue when they rammed DOMA through Congress.

    But nice try, Tex.

    I just find it amusing when the right wingers attack each other.

    He has some good points, but then he goes off on some wild things too.

    Gay marriage is no longer particularly controversial, except among wing-nuts.

    @ARodney

    Well, when almost half the country is against something, wouldn’t that be considered “controversial”?

    Just because the media says we SHOULD be fine with it, it doesn’t mean we have to.

    “Kinda like how the lefties have Bill Maher.”

    He supports some ideas that are supported by liberals, but Maher also supports gun rights, thinks Social Security should be privatized & wants to end Federal funding of non-profits.

    Coulter & Maher both make their living by being provocateurs.

    @Tigger

    If Obama said that Michelle Bachmann, one-time front-runner for Republican presidential candidate, was crazy, it would be spot on correct.

    But I doubt that’s going to happen.

    That’s because if this keeps up, they’re afraid won’t be allowed to go to gay bars any more and beat-up the patrons as they leave.

    ( The very first Reagan Repub I ever met once bragged about having done his. )

    ROFLMAO!

    Ahhh, you can always tell when Immy’s losing an argument, folks, That’s when he desperately tries to change the subject by putting words in his opponent’s mouth.

    I think Pett was in the uncomfortable position of finding himself admiring Paul for some of the positions he’s taken, and had to work that out of his system with this cartoon…
