She Who Shall Not Be Named

Sorry, I just couldn't bring myself to put Ann Coulter's name in the title. Here is my take on her "career" and "works".

She, like Howard Stern, is a performance artist. Both have a shtick. Howard does his shock jock shtick and Ann does her outrage incitement, via books and appearances. Both draw attention and earn considerable income from the niches they inhabit.

Both will continue to continue with their respective shticks as long as the attention and money keeps coming in. Given the attention directed at her and her latest "work", Ann will continue to pursue the course that has brought her fame and wealth.

I don't believe for a minute that anything she writes or says in public reflects her actual views. What is reflected is her desire to continue in her present lifestyle, nothing more. When the attention stops, so does the money.
