Conservative pundit Ann Coulter on Wednesday laid out the strategy she thinks will help the GOP win the Senate, trying to scare Republicans into following her detailed instructions.

She seems incredibly concerned that libertarian candidates and the people that vote for them will ruin the election for everyone.

“The biggest current danger for Republicans is that idiots will vote for Libertarian candidates in do-or-die Senate elections, including Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina and Colorado,” she wrote in her column, adding that the independent candidate in the Kansas race also poses a threat to the party. “Democratic candidates don’t have to put up with this crap — they’re even trying to dump the official Democrat in Kansas to give the stealth Democrat a better shot.”

Coulter has a point. In close races, libertarian candidates could pull votes from Republicans, helping out the Democrat, especially in states like Louisiana and North Carolina.

“When we’re all dying from lack of health care across the United States of Mexico, we’ll be deeply impressed with your integrity, libertarians,” Coulter wrote. “Which brings me to my final assignment this week: If you are considering voting for the Libertarian candidate in any Senate election, please send me your name and address so I can track you down and drown you.”

Coulter also ordered Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts to “spend every day from now until Nov. 4 campaigning” and told conservatives to donate to Scott Brown in the New Hampshire race.
