Ann Coulter seems to have found her new crusade: defending Sen. Norm Coleman's seat that she is convinced he already won on Nov. 4 against Al Franken. Unfortunately (and predictably) she skews facts to make her point
Even she is fed up with Republicans. "If the Republican Party can't protect an election won by the incumbent U.S. senator in Minnesota, there is no point in donating to the Republican Party."
Coulter uses the "found" ballots in northern Minnesota story to try to make her case of Democrats stealing the election. This was the county where it was determined that human error led to an incorrect final count
sent to the Secretary of State. No ballots were "found" as she claims, it was simply a recording error by an election official.
Here is how Coulter describes it:
Then one heavily Democratic town miraculously discovered 100 missing ballots. And, in another marvel, they were all for Al Franken! It was like a completely evil version of a Christmas miracle.
As strange as it was that all 100 post-election, "discovered" ballots would be for one candidate, it was even stranger that the official time stamp for the miracle ballots printed out by the voting machine on the miracle ballots showed that the votes had been cast on Nov. 2 -- two days before the election.
Democratic election officials in the miracle-ballot county simply announced that their voting machine must have been broken. Don't worry about it -- they were sure those 100 votes for Franken were legit.
Well, it doesn't matter what the facts are really. Just trust Coulter to know that Democrats are terrible and will always manipulate to win.
No matter how many times Democrats steal elections, Republicans keep thinking the next time will be different. Minnesota is famously clean, isn't it? It must different. It's not different. It's still the Democrats.
