Ann Coulter's Writing

Joseph Cannon wonders, "Okay, seriously: Chris Matthews, commenting on the contretemps between Ann Coulter and Elizabeth Edwards, calls Coulter a 'brilliant writer.' By what standard?," and proceeds to dissect Coulter's recent column about immigration.

Chris Matthews doesn't read any of the books whose authors he has on as guests on Hardball. No radio or TV host reads them. Larry King was at least honest enough to admit it and I once heard Dennis Prager boasting about it on his radio show. Likewise, these hosts always say the book is "a great read" or something similar. If they don't offer obligatory compliments, the author may not return. It's all about access.

I don't think Coulter even writes her columns or books herself anymore. Maybe she did in the beginning, but now she's a celebrity no different than Suzanne Somers hawking her latest diet book on HSN and Larry King. It's celebrity marketing.

Are you suggesting that James Patterson is her ghost writer?
