Ann Coulter’s Latest Bid For Attention

It must be terrible to be a right wing shock pundit these days. There seems to be a natural progression for them that is almost unavoidable. First, you make a name for yourself by shamelessly lying about a liberal and catching the short attention span of conservatives. Then you have to up your game by inventing more outrageous lies. Your fake outrage (and therefor, your popularity) can only be maintained for so long in this fashion. The remedy is to spit out controversial statements to get liberals worked up and use that to prove that you’re still relevant. Finally, people stop paying attention to you from both sides and you’re reduced to being an attention whore; saying anything to stir up controversy. Like this little turd from Ann Coulter:

“That’s right, and they do go after the children,” Coulter agreed. “I just say that going after the children generally ought to be off limits. It has not been off limits for Republicans, though, conservatives have taken the Obama children off limits.”

Let’s ignore that Limbaugh went after Chelsea Clinton. Coulter seems to have forgotten that Glenn Beck made fun of 11 year old Mailia Obama, or Limbaugh called the Obama daughters “fat.” But whatever, it’s not like they were reported running naked through their hotel in Argentina like the Bush twins. That would be inappropriate to make fun of. Unless their father had been a Democrat. Then we’d still be hearing about it.

Coulter is entering the final phase of her relevancy in which generating controversy is her only marketable skill. This is reflected most clearly in her book titles:

  • High Crimes and Misdemeanors: The Case Against Bill Clinton – 1998
  • Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right – 2002
  • Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism – 2003
  • How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must): The World According to Ann Coulter – 2004
  • Godless: The Church of Liberalism – 2006
  • If Democrats Had Any Brains, They’d Be Republicans – 2007
  • Guilty: Liberal “Victims” and Their Assault on America – 2009
  • Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America – 2011
Presumably, her next book will be called “Pedophiles: How Obama Raped A Small Child On The White House Lawn.”
Despite  Coulter’s increasing shrillness, her books sales have been steadily decreasing. And that’s even with the right wing’s penchant for buying them in bulk to give away free on conservative websites. What? You didn’t think all those books reached best seller status on their merits, did you? Jan Brewer recently got caught doing it with her own campaign money.
I look forward to Coulter’s Glenn Beck style flame-out.

  1. Coulter shames all women.

  2. I’m confused. It sounds like she’s saying that Republicans make fun of Obama’s children, which would be quite an admission from Ms. Coulter.

  3. Ya know, Scum, I was recently thinking of writing a piece about her myself. A very good friend, a fellow moderate, sent me a link to her blog a few days ago. In it she was trying to make a point, and failed miserably. The funny part was, her piece was about Santorum trying to make a point and failing miserably. I’m not sure if she realizes how far gone she really is, lol.

    I was just asking my significant other, where has skelletor been? How come she’s not on FOX news spewing her venom? She was under a rock somewhere regenerating more hatred and fake outrage so she can make more $$$$ by “selling” her so called books.
