Edwards Catapulted by Coulter

You can't buy this kind of publicity ... well, actually you could, for however much conservatrix Ann Coulter charges to speak at an event and tongue lash you. When Coulter dropped the f-grenade (not the f-bomb, which would probably have garnered less publicity) on an audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, it engendered a wave of outrage ... prompting us to ask, why on earth does Ann do what she does? How does this latest explosion fit into a Coulter history of verbal bombing? Susan Estrich, author of Soulless: Ann Coulter and the Right-Wing Church of Hate, will weigh in. And so, hopefully, will you.
