Wednesday was a difficult day for The American Independent News Network, which is the larger entity that operates The Iowa Independent. Our chief executive and founder announced two of our sister sites would close and their content would be moved to The American Independent.
Ann Coulter: Steve King ‘one of my favorites’
Right-wing hate hawker Ann Coulter tells the Red County Web site that western Iowa congressman Steve King, a Kiron Republican, is one of her “favorites” in what she sees as an emerging crop of conservatives. The interview was posted on Tuesday.
RED COUNTY: What do you make of all the people turning on the Reagan legacy (for example Newt Gingrich on climate change)? Why the phenomena of the big government Republican?
COULTER: We need the younger generation of right-wingers to rise up and take charge.
RED COUNTY: Are there any rising stars within the conservative movement that you look forward to?
COULTER: Yes, plenty — the great Steve King of Iowa is one of my favorites — but “rising” means they still have to rise. An Obama administration should give them plenty of opportunities, assuming the country can survive it.
