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."

    Hey Chelle, JFK was hardly a liberal. What's his most famous quote? "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country". This is completely contrary to the modern liberal mindset. Now his brother, whose hobbies include driving drunk off of bridges and leaving young women to die, now he's a liberal.

    "Funny Liberals" Spoken like a true zealot. The only thing that is udeniable is that something isn't so just because you, Rush, or Ann says it is.

    It's a terrible pain to see so many hate a woman who personifies exactly what the liberals have been moaning about for years. Finally there is truly an educated, self sufficient, liberated woman and the libs here can do nothing but spite her.

    You Republicans will only help when there is something in it for you. You are mean and care about no one but yourselves. God teaches love, and to help people in need.

    Well the way that idiot Joy Beher treated her on Larry King its no wonder. Why in the world does CNN have this bimbo as host of Larry's show when he isn't there. At least bring in Maher who will give you at least a chance to voice your opinion without the verbal abuse.

    Ann Coulter's next book should be " How the Obama Fish Hook Caught Me and Made Me a Converted Liberal" Or "How to Stuff a Conservative Fish Liberal Style"!

    I love her books. They never have a single foot-note. Not a single reference or any research... ever. No proof that she's done any homework other than stew in her own hateful oozings for a while.

    Nothing.

    This makes every word she writes super-easy to refute with a bare whiff of research, reason, and common sense.

    It really isn't that difficult for even a credulous person to check around and find out that she makes it all up... Unless one is so crippled with emotional insecurity that they need to believe this rubbish.

    Ann Coulter is one of the most hate-filled people I've ever heard. What could have happened to her to make her so mean-spirited? Maybe she would be more physically attractive if she wasn't such a nasty person.

    "Funny Liberals," like Coulter, Limbaugh and other ultra-conservatives simply make up their own truths to suit their own bigoted, hate-filled beliefs. So far we've had more honesty and common sense from the current adminstration in 60 days than we got in all 8 years of Bush-Cheney.

    The really sad thing for Republicans is that they're now even eating their own. (Limbaugh vs. Steele, Blackwell vs. Steele, etc..) They haven't the slighest clue that their "values" and beliefs no longer resonate with the majority of Americans and that's why they lost BIGTIME in the last election. The GOP is the "Party of NO."

    As I said: Palin/Coulter 2012 with Rush and Hannity as chief court jesters. Yeah! That's the ticket!!

    I have never believed that Coulter actually believes the things she says or writes. I have always felt that she was just trying to sell books and keep her face on TV. I guess her "fans" have realized that she is just spewing dribble as well.

    You know, with the amount of reporting that CNN does on Coulter, you'd think she was on the payroll.

    Oh wait.

    I think Ann Coulter would be better served putting her mouth to other uses.

    Ann Coulter is a despicable person and does not deserve the fame (infamy) she receives!

    Coulter is such an idiot, like Rush, if you believe in them you deserve what you get. Stop being mindless cattle! Think for yourself!

    as of 03/11/09
    McClatchy-Ipsos poll.
    The survey found that 65 percent of Americans approve of the way Obama is doing his job roughly 50 days into his presidency. That was down slightly from 69 percent a month ago.

    Sorry to hear about sales. I better go buy a few more copies to give as presents to my liberal friends who need to be reading more and voting less. So glad we live in a free society where "dissenters" like Ann can still write books. If we followed current liberal thinking (used by some writers on this thread) people like Ann would be jailed for hate speech. So much for open-mindedness and adherence to democratic values, such as freedom of speech
    -----------------------------

    I am so happy to hear that you think Ann can write. I am happy to wish her success. The more she writes the less she infuences. Hate speech hopefully is on the wane. Disagree ,yes, by all means, but her brand of writing is down right mean and often pointless. But if the GOP continues to support her and others like her more power to them. They are writing a one way ticket to their ultimate dimise. God Bless America. All of us. RED and BLUE and Yes Even YOU!

    She has nothing to say. She already used up all her rants, so why should I get yet another mix of her old tired ideas? And no, I don't need another photo of her either. She's not THAT good looking.

    Now Isn't this a true sign of "GOD'S DIVINE BLESSINGS".

    This woman went around the country selling nothing but HATE, RACISM, DIVISION, BIGOTRY and HYPOCRISY all wrapped in a little red bow of her delusional mind. Americans bought her BS the first time, but after realizing she's nothing but a FRAUD and a SCAM artist, they got WISE to the scam she was pulling. Americans got WISE to her insanity and STOP buying her worthless book.

    Americans are TIRED of people telling them HOW they should think and feel. Americans are TIRED of being "dictated" to by the likes of Ann and Rush.

    God doesn't like UGLY, and Ann Coulter's heart was "ugly". She was in this for the GREED of MONEY, MONEY, MONEY!!! Blondie wanted to get RICH FAST.

    What she didn't count on...is you reap what you sow.... and so it's NO surprise no one is buying her foolishness anymore.

    People like Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulture, they THRIVE on other people's misery, they THRIVE knowing they are spewing "negativity" on everyone else but themselves. NO ONE wants to hear that garbage anymore!!! That's OLD and TIRED news now!!

    Hell, if I'm miserable I don't need Rush or Ann to make me MORE miserable, I can be miserable by myself!!! Americans are wising up, praise the LORD!

    Not cool, 'republicans hate America'. That's not what we want to say.
    Conservatives are real and true Americans too, and no matter how much they questioned our patriotism in the last 8 years, no matter how close liberals actually came to being silenced forever under Bush's Patriot Act and circumvention of the Constitution because of people like Ann Coulter, NEVER FORGET that conservatives are as much victims of fascist chicanery as anyone else, the only difference between us and them is that they fell for what the neocons were selling.

    These are people who represent the poorest and least economically relevant wing of European descended Americans who believe that their destiny is to lie back and accept serfdom. THESE are the people our policies and beliefs will benefit FIRST, and outright contempt for them will not win hearts and minds, but only drive them away to accepting serfdom via their demagogues in the media.
