Coulter for Clinton?

Ann Coulter has been under fire for insisting that she’d rather see Hillary Clinton in the White House than John McCain. But her point ought to be well taken: as we know, McCain would be a disaster domestically, and as Andrew McCarthy argues, his defense credentials are “a mirage.” So the benefits of a McCain presidency would be marginal, at best. But the kicker lies in Ann’s argument:

At least under President Hillary, Republicans in Congress would know that they’re supposed to fight back. When President McCain proposes the same ideas—tax hikes, liberal judges and Social Security for illegals—Republicans in Congress will support “our” president—just as they supported, if only briefly, Bush’s great ideas on amnesty and Harriet Miers. You need little flags like that for Republicans since, as we know from the recent unpleasantness in Florida, Republicans are unalterably stupid.

She’s right: most Capitol Hill Republicans don’t have the independence or backbone to stand against one of their own in the Oval Office. So, if McCain wins the nomination, our choice would be A) largely-disastrous policies with at least nominal Congressional opposition, or B) largely-disastrous policies with support from both sides of the aisle. What a choice!
Here’s hoping we can avert this nightmare scenario: vote Mitt Romney.
