How Bad Is It? Even Ann Coulter Has Turned On Conservatives (FYI: Coulter's new book is sales flop)
Daily Beast ^ | 10/17/13 | Michelle Cottle

Posted on 10/17/2013 6:47:01 AM PDT by jimbo123

-snip-

On Monday, conservative provocateur Ann Coulter visited Sean Hannity for a plug-her-latest-book sitdown, during which her host tossed out what he no doubt assumed would a typical conservative-colleagues-in-arms softball: “Establishment Republicans are at war with the Tea Party base, and I’m angry about it!” But Coulter slammed it, so to speak, to the opposite field, going on a tear against Newt Gingrich, Todd Akin, Mark Sanford, and Liz Cheney, whom she declared to be “hucksters, shysters, and people ripping off the Republican Party for their own self-aggrandizement, for their own egos, to make money.”

Miss RomneyCare Ann Coulter's new book was released on Monday and it's a flop:

Amazon Hardcover Sales Rank: #92
Amazon Kindle Sales Rank: #395
Barnes & Noble Sales Rank: #74

I hope Miss Coulter isn't surprised by her terrible book sales during her launch week.

Anybody thinking this traitor has turned over a new leaf was sadly mistaken.

She has sold her soul for electability.

Exactly the same way I feel, she gave us Romney...she didn’t let the PEOPLE choose, she felt she could choose for all of us...

I don't know; for some reason something about the pot and the kettle comes to mind here.

True, but this is the excuse she is offering.

She is no better than Karl Rove, or any of the other Collaborators.

Good . . . her wholesale endorsement of Mittens Romney was a disgrace to an otherwise well-spoken conservative. She deserves the backlash.

Ann Coulter fell in love with Chris Christie. Then she fell in love with Mitt Romney.

None of us were so fooled. She and her opinions can go screw!

Bingo.

This would get the cameras pointing back at her.

The word "Harpies" would be obscure were it not for AC using it to describe 9/11 widows.

Unlike Ann herself? It's apparently a successful business model, until now.

I wrote off Ann Coulter after she spent the the last several years kissing Chris Christie huge arse, declaring him the second coming of Ronald Reagan and shouting down anybody that dared criticize his conservative credentials. Only to suddenly discover a few months ago (what every other Conservative with more than two brain cells already knew)that Chris Christie is and always has been a RINO. That told me that Coulter is either terminally stupid, (which I don't believe), or a big a RINO as Christie, but she plays a conservative to sell books to all us conservative rubes. (more likely). Either way, I have no use for her anymore...

I think, last book, she actually did make fun of a handicapped person. Yeah, yeah, she tweeted the word "retard".

She is so predictably lame. Hard to believe I once drove two hours and then waited two more hours to see her. I wouldn't cross the street to see her these days.

Actually, I'm in agreement with her on Newt, Sanford, and Cheney.

I'd like to see Liz Cheney actually run something before putting her in the Senate.

I heard her on Rush a few weeks ago and she sounded like a typical say-nothing Moderate political hack.

I don't know that much about Akin other than he didn't recognize a "gotcha" question when it was staring him in the face.

Well she’s right and wrong.....Mark Sanford, for all his foibles, is loved in SC because he’s a great conservative and is really good at bashing liberals.

And Newt, the “good Newt” is far more conservative than Ann....and better at bashing libs than even Ann.....altho the “bad Newt” is, well, the bad Newt I admit.

Meanwhile, Akin was a self serving joke and a pathetic candidate — not sure about Liz v Enzi.

I like Ann. I do not like the cannibalism that is going on here.

I know who DOES like it: the Clown.

I am certain many here remember the 1980s when the Democrat party was ripped apart by inner turmoil....this is happening to the Republican party now, but the stakes are MUCH higher.

I totally believe that we must re-align the conservative movement, but we would best be served by doing so within the apparatus of the Republican party. Reagan did that. We should follow his example.

The Tea Party is working on doing that; the election of 2010 showed what is possible. We will NOT win every fight, we will lose many. So did George Washington. And he had a bunch of guys abandon his force, too, didn’t he?

I have attacked without mercy true RINOs....but not every one with whom I disagree. Examples? Charlie Crist, right after he embraced Obama. That snot nose Chaffee from Rhode Island. McCain. A few others.

But Ann? No. I didn’t AGREE with her about Christie, but I also didn’t throw her under the bus. Rand Paul voted FOR the haughty John Kerry (who served in Vietnam) as Sec State....but I don’t consider him a traitor.

I think we sometimes need to cool our jets. Being infuriated all the time isn’t wise or healthy.

God bless.

Since her endorsement of Romney, she has not been walking point for conservatives but stabbing them in the back and this book of hers is just further proof.

Who besides Romney was really against amnesty for illegals? I voted Romney for one reason and one reason only, no amnesty. Now it is very likely that this administration will get the amnesty it so very much wants. Hope all are happy with that result (30 million new Rat voters).

Book sales are an excellent indicator of the credibility level of a “conservative” commentator. Conservatives drive non-fiction book sales. Authors like Limbaugh, Levin and Malkin usually hit #1 on the NYT best seller list. Levin is #1 now. Coulter had a couple of previous books hit #1. If her book sales tank it will be a clear indication that she has fallen out of favour with conservatives. Decisions have consequences and her Romney-Christie chickens may be coming home to roost.
