Coulter Goes Postal

As you’ll no doubt recall, the NY Post recently jumped on the blogosphere bandwagon and reported that Ann Coulter is a stinking plagiarist. (Keith Olbermann interviews the exec whose company was hired by the Post to sniff out Coulter’s copycatting here.)

Well, Coulter doesn’t take that shit lying down, bitchez! She takes on the Post in her latest column, to which I won’t link, but you can find it at any one of a number of skank-infested backwaters on the internets:

Once considered a legitimate daily, the Post has been reduced to tabloid status
Oops. The Post is a tabloid. But don’t let me stop you with the facts, Ann. Please continue.

best known for Page Six's breathless accounts of Paris Hilton's latest ruttings, and headlines like "Vampire Teen — H.S. Girl Is Out for Blood." How crappy a newspaper is the Post? Let me put it this way: It's New York's second-crappiest paper.

Maybe the Post's constant harassment of me is an attempt to shake me down for protection money like they did with billionaire businessman Ron Burkle. I have sold a LOT of books — more books, come to think of it, than any writers at the New York Post.
The rest of the column reprints an interview she did with the Post which she accuses them of not running because of “an important breaking story on Angelina Jolie's new tattoo.” Oh, ho ho ho. It sure is funny to make fun of a tabloid for being…uh…a tabloid, huh? Especially when the real reason they bumped it is probably because they thought the story about her being a plagiarist was juicier.

Hey—what about that? Seems like actually denying the charges slipped old Annie’s addled mind. Huh.
