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."

    Is that what she does?? Attack the left?? Or attack women in particular or everything?? So...she does hate on em, huh? You know, Grover Cleveland is right..."Sensible and responsible women do not want to vote."

    To come and think about it, he just may be right, LOL!!!!

    The only time she spews her vile & appears on TV is when she's plugging a book.

    That's the thing with the right-wing kooks . . . the only way they get ratings and noticed is by spewing ugliness and hate.

    Maybe this time the American people are fed up with it!

    At QBear:

    "Hate filled fiction?" Hers doesn't even come close to the drivel that gets past the "moderator" in here. I think it's hilarious that you guys on the far right and far left in here spew your hate every day, and then have the nerve to call a published book "hate filled fiction."

    Of course, you do have an advantage over me. Your posts seem to always get past the CNN censors.

    Yeah… but she sure is HOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

    For pity's sake . . . SHE HAS AN ADAM'S APPLE. Maybe you ought to set your sights on the Jonas Bros. instead–they are far more honest.

    This comes as no suprise. The Amercian people rejcted the NeoCon philosphy and lies as a whole, hence the elction of Obama. She is so wrapped up in her fabricated world that she probably has yet to realize this.

    Perhaps the public has just become weary of divisive, hateful politics. Other issues have become more pressing...like surviving.

    People are tired of venomous hate and division.

    Not up on who she is , but i have seen a lot of her lately.. and not a fan of the things i have heard her say, but 100,000 of book sales in today's economy is pretty good i would say.. even with the internet and how you can downlaod just about anything you need and want now a day's .. i guess you can give her book sales 1 thumb up not sure if it's a good read, but 100k in books sold in 2 months not to bad .. i wonder how many Rush brought to give away to his base group.. maybe 100k...

    Well, maybe is Coulter and Rick Santorum co-wrote a book on how to get away with voter fraud it would become a bestseller at the next CPAC gathering.

    Lets face it, her books pander to the knee jerk/ conspiracy crowd.

    Her every title has to be more and more sensationalist (even though its just the same variation of crap) to sell more books...

    Next title? 'Liberals Practice Bestiality, And Only GOD And The GOP Can Save America' ..think I'm kidding?? Just watch...

    Maybe if she checked her "facts" instead of making them up...

    It's too bad sales are tanking. She could use the money to fund a cure for her bulimia.

    Why would anyone want to read her lies? Small-minded, hate filled insults that she spewed proved time and again that she was no lady.

    Why the RWNJs put up with her is incomprehensible to the intelligent minded folk.

  19. greg in jax doesnt like ann

    well. no wonder , most of her target audience either know someone, are related to someone or are a single mother..... whom she blames most of this country's problems are.. and these people are afraid to read what she says, then, they too will know, that in the eyes of the extreme right, that they too, are the dreaded liberals..... or maybe they will realize that if she is wrong on this subject, that she is probably wrong on her other opinions and then their entire worlds will be turned upside down.. so they are opting to go with ignorance is bliss, if they dont read ann's hateful words, then they are true.... its really simple to understand, that is if you have a mind of your own that you know how to use.....

    i didnt know is no longer a valid excuse when it comes to who ann coulter is.

    Looks like the market for hate is drying up.

    She can always go back to streetwalking.

  21. Annie is a tranny & Lush Limprick's "friend with benefits"!

    I think I am misty eyed for missy.

    First of all, Congress has the highest rating it has had in 4 years and 52 to 42 percent of Americans think Democrats and "big government" have the better answer over repubs and "smaller government". President Obama's approval rating went up to 63 and you neo-cons are at 27 percent approval ratings.

    Do you ditto heads really believe the rest of America is as shallow as you? I would have thought 53 – 46 differential on 11.4 would have given you a clue.

    Looks like America is no longer buying what Coulter and crew are selling.

    Ann Coulter is a very intelligent woman, but unfortunately she comes across as a person with the confidence of a cocaine user! With her low book sells, I guess she will go from cocaine to crack...LOL!

    I LOVE THIS COUNTRY!

    I guess people don't have time to waste in divisive thoughts, just look at the hateful titles, even the republicants can't stomach her views anymore.

    Since when does a bad cocktail dress and a snarky personality equal authorship? She's not even a real blond...why should we expect her to be a real author?

    But I'll give her this - she's the best thing American liberalism has going for it!
