Coulter's book sales off

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/03/13/art.coulter2.cnn.jpg caption="Sales of Coulter's latest book appear to be far lower than her others."](CNN) - Is Ann Coulter losing her mojo when it comes to selling books?

The conservative commentator, whose previous tomes have flown of the bookshelves, isn't having quite as good luck with her latest hardback, "Guilty: Liberal 'Victims' and Their Assault on America."

According to Portfolio Magazine, just over 100,000 copies of the book have sold during its two months on the market. While that number far surpasses most politically themed books, its sales to date rank far below those of other Coulter polemics.

Portfolio reports 2006's "Godless: The Church of Liberalism," sold 279,100 copies in hardcover, 2003's "Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terror," sold 396,600 hardcover copies, and 2002's "Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right," sold 333,100 copies and an additional 108,300 in paperback.

The comparatively low book sales come even as Coulter has mounted a high-profile publicity tour in recent weeks, including widely watched and heated appearances on "The Today Show" and "The View."

    this pathetic woman should be put in a mental hospital...the spew she brews is so outright wrong and false and she uses this not for the benefit of the conservatives of america but for the promotion of her books...and looks like now the conservatives are getting to know she is full of baloney...

    I would vote for her. She is the best. Liberals hate her because they know she speaks the truth, and that scares them...lol. Go buy her books people. Long live Ann Coulter!

    Is this really that shocking? The majority of people are tired of her right wing, conservative finger pointing which rivals her left wing counter parts. The truth is usually found in the middle and most Americans are beginning to figure that out.

    Her decline mirrors the decline of fundamentalist conservatism. She is a poster child for the use lies and slander to promote her cause. Maybe she could move to Texas with Chuck Norris.

    I will head out today and pick up another copy to help her out!

    The book ordering scammers must be afraid of getting caught.They use to order large quantities, so her books would go to number one sellers list and sell more.I wont mention their names but you can guess who they were.

    I guess people aren't willing to spend their hard earned money on hate-filled fiction these days.

    Ann...you were the man! I guess the only book selling now is "How to survive on Ramen Noodles and Tuna".

    Maybe Rush can help her. He can be the wind beneath her sails.
    Lots of wind there.

    I can't believe anybody would actully pay for the drivel she writes anyway.

    I gotta admit, she ain't hard on the eyes at all. But the minute she opens her mouth, all bets are off. What is it about these Republican women? Almost enough to make me switch sides......almost.

    That's because nobody cares what she has to say. Take the $20 you were going to spend on this book and donate it to charity. That makes more sense to me!

    Well she better tell her fellow GOPs to take the money that the President is trying to give their states so they can go out and but a copy of the book... but she will be ok she have to much HATE do to and good.

    For those of you who believe that no body wants to hear conservative view points, just look at the cable news ratings. Also, it wasn't that more Dems got Barry elected...it was that more republicans voted for Obama because they didn't like McCain. This is still a majority conservative country people. That is a statistical fact. Check it. Go Ann!

    I like her! I get so tired of hearing only one side of the story. I like to hear both sides. She is funny and sharp.

    I would say that maybe Ann should look at the results of her book sales & maybe try to put 2 and 2 together and realize she needs to calm down & become more tolerant to ideas other than hers.

    She would have made a good prison camp guard in the 1940's. Sieg Heil Fraulein !

    Good! I hope she doesn't sell another book. She is making money by bad mouting everybody that doesn't agree with her. I wouldn't spend a penny for any of her books.

    I still think she's a liberal guy in drag who has infiltrated the right in order to expose them. It's only a matter of time. . .
