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."

    The real question is who are the hundred thousand fools that bought this crap book?

    Ann Coulter represents everything that's wrong with this country. She claims Republican party affiliation just so she can whine about the Democrats. Even if McCain won, she'd be blasting him for everything: she needs a man in her life to take her away from all this and get her mind of complaining about EVERYTHING!!! I was thinking Kim Jung Il, Hugo Chavez, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad or Evo Morales: one complaint to any them and they'll treat Ms. Coulter like she deserves to be treated.

    I once saw Ann say on Bill Maher's show that she didn't believe woman should be able to vote.

    Basically that means she thinks the opion of a woman is worthless.

    Which would mean that she also thinks her own opinion is worthless.

    I say to each their own, & I don't hold any ill will toward Ann Coulter. A guy's gotta make a living, after all.

    Kevin in OH:

    Please explain how this is the "Obama economy"? We were falling into the abyss well before Obama was even elected to office.

    Turn off the Rush show, open your eyes, do some basic historical research, and when you are through we can all welcome you to the real world.

    worriedmom, (a) nobody is interested in Rev Wright or Bill Ayers, or pays any attention to what they say. Most moderates and liberals disagree with them, and (b) what is a Lilberal?
    You agree with everything Coulter says to the point of adoration, while most Dems think Al Franken is a rude tool. We're the cynical ones.
    Don't let politics make you into a rude tool, folks. This is a message from the Tool Council.

    Oh Karen what a dream world you are living in. I am guessing that you are the .5 % of people that actually listen to her unintelligent words? She has you fooled and as well as drinking the Kool-aide. Karen start drinking water... the rest of are. You know if the economy plummets then we could use her books for kindle.

    One hopes the general public is losing interest in vitriolic violence-inciting demagogues.

    I wouldn't even wipe my butt with pages of her book.. .Page after page of lies, and hateful, immature garbage.

    I hope she never writes or seels another book or anything else ever again. The world would be a better place without her. (and people like her)

    @ phioenix86, who said "Book sales are down because democrats want to be lied to."

    No, her book sales exist in the first place because GOPers want to be lied to.

    I am a liberal and wear as a badge of honor Coulter's attacks. Who listens and/or reads her hate-monger vial monolouges? Even my repub friends think that she's off her rocker. I guess you have to be the sort of repub that lets mouthpieces like dear Annie and her bud Rush do their thinking for them. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

    When times are tough I guess people don't want to spend their hard earned money on hot air that's been captured to print. So much for my book idea titled: PFFFFFFT! The gentle musings of the hot air balloon. 🙁
