    Default Ann Coulter's book sales down

    Though never exactly shy, Ann Coulter has been especially noisy in her self-promotion lately, inventing a beef with NBC News, arguing with Keith Olbermann over the meaning of a Cornell degree and taking her act on the road with Bill Maher as foil. Could it be because she's worried she's losing our attention?

    Coulter's latest book, Guilty: Liberal "Victims" and Their Assault on America, is something of a misfire by Coulterian standards. Of course, what constitutes a disappointment for Coulter would be a mega-hit for most authors; in its two months on sale, Guilty has sold 100,500 copies, according to Nielsen BookScan (a number that only reflects around 70 percent of actual sales).

    But with it moving steadily down the best-seller list, it looks certain that Guilty will fall far short of matching her earlier results. Her 2006 polemic, Godless: The Church of Liberalism, sold 279,100 copies in hardcover, according to BookScan; Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terror, published in 2003, sold 396,600 hardcover copies, and 2002's Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right, sold 333,100 copies, plus another 108,300 in paperback. (The two other books she published over that period, How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must) and If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans, are both collections rather than original works, so I left them out for the sake of apples-to-apples comparison.)

    No wonder Coulter's wishing out loud that the new administration had chosen to feud with her instead of Rush Limbaugh. Could it be that Barack Obama's America has a smaller appetite for Coulter's brand of take-no-prisoners, obey-no-logic conservatism?

    Somehow she'll blame this on that evil socialist Obama.

    Or, as she insists on calling him, "B. Hussein Obama"

    These idiots like coulter obviously thrive on being so in your face and so offensive because to them it equates more publicity and more bling bling. Something limbaugh is doing rather brilliantly now.

    I think it's because her followers have filled their bookshelves. So few actually read,anyway.

    I hear "bling" and "Limpballs" and I immediately think of this picture:

    Good. It's about time people stopped funding her ability to spread hatred and intolerance.
    Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

    Then we can expect her to say something particularly hateful and vile very soon most likely. She always seems to amp up the nasty when she's not getting enough attention.

    She's getting to the point where she's going to need to push it to the limit to get ANY attention, what with all the other crazies out there. Hopefully, she'll make another statement about Bristol needing to put the baby up for adoption now that she's a single mother.

    So her jaw has been unwired? That was too good to last.

    Today I went to the house of a friend whose father usually buys her books as soon as they come out. He had the most recent one, but it was a library copy. People aren't shelling out money for disposable shit like this any more.

    And most of her sales are sold by bulk and heavily discounted to get into the bestseller list. Plus count today's economy people arent going to splash out on a hardback written by her - discount or no discount.
