Coulter on Leno

Either Leno's normal audience is very conservative or, knowing Coulter would be on, it was unusually stacked with con whackjobs who hooted enthusiastically for her.

She's claiming her book is number one in the country. On what list, I'm not sure. Oh, it's on Amazon, although currently it's number 2. And I see at humaneventsonline that you can get a free copy of the book for subscribing. Did they buy bulk? It's not in the top 35 of the New York Times Best-seller list though (oddly dated June 18, though today is June 15). Anderson Cooper's Dispatches From the Edge is number one in the country. [ed: update - Godless is #1 on the NY Times Best-seller list as of June 25, which is still 6 days into the future. I don't get the dating system on that.]

She's amazed that no liberals have complained about being called godless, as she'd take notice if someone called her godless. (The Gospel According to Coulter, collected from sources other than Godless, since she doesn't share these deeply-felt religious convictions in her new book: "God gave us the earth. We have dominion over the plants, the animals, the trees. God said, 'Earth is yours. Take it. Rape it! It's yours;'" "Let's say I go out every night, I meet a guy and have sex with him. Good for me. I'm not married;" "Don't pray. Learn to use guns.")

She had her book vetted thoroughly by her one liberal friend who never mentioned the "9/11 harpies" as controversial, so she's taken aback.

Explaining her message to liberals: [paraphrasing] "Don't send out victims to argue a point so that I can't attack them. Don't send out people like Max Cleland." Who's sending victims out? Is there evidence of a committee made up of liberals and Democrats which makes lists of victims, contacts them and sends them on missions to speak publicly about issues which just happen to concern them? Some of the 9/11 widows are Republican. Do they subscribe to the liberal doctrine of infallibility? And there's the Republican mantra: "9/11 changed everything." That's also a doctrine of infallibility that hindered many people from closely examining the case for war in Iraq. IOKIYR. And I'd say it's far more likely that there was a concerted, conscious effort to use the "9/11 changed everything" mantra than that there's a committee to recruit victims for liberal causes.

After wimpily addressing the attack on 9/11 widows, Leno asked her if she's ever had sex with a liberal. Gack. The real question is, would a liberal ever have sex with Ann Coulter? The religious good girl who is not in any way godless has had plenty of pre-marital sex, but only with conservatives, all of whom could kick any liberal's ass, according to her.

I can't remember any other nonsense she spouted, as I had to remain somewhat detached to even be able to watch.

However, George Carlin is a very polite person. He was sitting next to her, having been the previous guest (he made a funny quip when she came out [paraphrase]: "I never thought that I would have to move to the right of Ann Coulter"). He never said a word during her interview.

While I'm on the topic of mAnn, BradBlog has documented her "digging her own grave" regarding her voter registration fraud. The more she talks ...
