Ann Coulter: Libertarian voters are “idiots” who deserve to “drown"

The media personality (aka troll) knows exactly whom she'll blame if the GOP doesn't win the Senate in November

Stumbling on perhaps the sole belief she shares in common with many readers of Salon, Ann Coulter writes in her latest column that people who vote for libertarian candidates are "idiots." But because this is Ann Coulter we're talking about, she can't help but take it a step further and threaten to drown these voters if they don't do what she wants.

And what Coulter wants, quite simply, is for the Republican Party to win control of the U.S. Senate in this year's midterm elections. "For the next six weeks, nothing matters more to the country than Republicans taking a majority in the Senate," Coulter writes. "All that matters is winning."

To that end, Coulter demands that GOP Sen. Pat Roberts campaign ceaselessly in his home state, so as to expose independent candidate Greg Orman as the scurrilous one-time Democrat he truly is. She also demands that "[e]veryone reading this column ... donate to Scott Brown immediately," because he is, apparently, "a very strong candidate."

Coulter thinks this is due to Brown's willingness to demagogue about "amnesty," which proves he's "one of the few candidates smart enough to make immigration an issue." (In that regard, he joins a rare club, one that only includes every other serious candidate for Congress.)

The right-wing pundit's most important demand, however, is not for GOP voters or politicians. It's for conservatives who may vote for a libertarian instead of a Republican. These folks, Coulter writes, are "idiots" who care more about their "integrity" than their fellow Americans.

"If you are considering voting for the libertarian candidate in any Senate election," Coulter signs off, "please send me your name and address so I can track you down and drown you."
