Can't Best Ann!
This is so funny! In the words of the infamous and enlightened Mr. T, “I pity the fool”, who tries to one-up Ann Coulter. From the WaPo:
Think what you will of her political views, but columnist Ann Coulter certainly has a gift for writing provocatively titled (and best-selling) books. To wit: “Treason: Liberal Treachery From the Cold War to the War on Terrorism” and “Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right.” Trying to one-up her, a campus-centered offshoot of the Center for American Progress sponsored a “Name Ann Coulter’s Next Book” contest and released the results yesterday.
The winner: “Roosevelt: Wheelchair-Riding, America-Hating Terrorist,” submitted by Ryan Sniatecki, 26, of Baltimore. “Sniatecki will take home his very own Ann Coulter talking action figure,” announced campusprogress.org, a new Web site set up by the left-leaning Washington think tank.
About 150 people entered the contest. Among the honorable mentions:
“Help: I’m Out of Liberal People, Places and Organizations to Hate.”
“Pander: How Character Assassination and Name-Calling Will Make You Popular and Rich.”
“Democracy: The Liberal Plot to Feed Your Children to the Poor.”
“Ann: Doesn’t Eat, Shoots, and Never Leaves.” (That’s a reference to Coulter’s thin physique.)
Coulter offered a characteristically cutting response. “Well, at least now they’re trying to be funny, a welcome change from all the vomiting and fainting after the election season,” she told us by e-mail. Then the author blasted back a list of potential titles for her next tome:
“Tuesdays With Morons.”
“The Five People You Meet in Line at the Welfare Office.”
“It Takes a Village to Raise a Kid With A.D.H.D., Rage Issues, and an Eating Disorder.”
“Their Eyes Were Watching God and Banning Him From Public Schools.”
“The Dan Rather Code.”
“He’s Just Not That Into Jews: The George Soros Story.”
