    Default Right wing nut job Ann Coulter a plagarist?

    Ann Coulter enjoys being called a gadfly and rabble-rouser — but will she like the new label being slapped on her? The conservative pundit is being accused of possible plagiarism by a nemesis, who has outlined instances where Coulter apparently has used passages for her new book without attribution.

    “Ann Coulter has a bad habit,” opines a blogger who calls himself the Rude Pundit. “And that habit, as mentioned before by the Rude Pundit. . . . is that she appears to like to copy whole sentences from other sources without putting them in as quotes or even citing where she might have ‘paraphrased’ from.”

    For example: In Chapter 1 of her new book, “Godless,” Coulter writes: “The massive Dickey-Lincoln Dam, a $227 million hydroelectric project proposed on upper St. John River in Maine, was halted by the discovery of the Furbish lousewort, a plant previously believed to be extinct.”

    A December 12, 1999 article in the Portland Press Herald of Maine had an article with this sentence: “The massive Dickey-Lincoln Dam, a $227 million hydroelectric project proposed on upper St. John River, is halted by the discovery of the Furbish lousewort, a plant believed to be extinct.”

    The Rude Pundit cites another example from Coulter’s first chapter in which the author seems to have done a better job of paraphrasing a sentence from the History Channel, but then links to an earlier column he wrote about other apparent examples of similarities between phrases in Coulter’s columns and words that appeared elsewhere, particularly in The Flummery Digest, a now-defunct news digest that ridiculed political correctness.

    Coulter’s publisher and agent didn’t return The Scoop’s calls for comment.

    HAH! She had no credibility to begin with, but now she's sliding into minus numbers.

    She'll probably roll her eyes, and question the masculinity of the original author, call him a crybaby for pointing out she's a fraud, etc etc.

    Anything but take responsibility. Classic neocon.
