Poor Ann Coulter. Every time things start going really bad for the White House, the usual suspects start their distraction campaigns. Then Ann Coulter--who desperately and rather pathetically wants to believe she's still relevant--has to come out and prove that she's the top of the slime heap by saying something even more outrageous. Her new book isn't selling well, and well, let's be honest, she reeeally needs to sell some -- and for more than the buck or worst, penny they go for. After all, it's not like those black cocktail dresses she prefers grow on trees, and let's not even talk about her cosmetic expenses--you think that comes cheap?

Appearing on Tucker to pimp her latest rag (and how sad a gig that is, the lowest rated show on MSNBC), the official Republican Spokesperson tosses out her contribution to the right wing mud wallowing to make everyone forget that they are the last stubborn stragglers to utter failure: John Edwards had an 18 month affair -- as reported by the NATIONAL ENQUIRER. At that point, even Tucker had to laugh at the feckless Coulter. Let's face it, if Tucker's laughing at your journalistic sourcing, Ann, you're officially a joke.

As with just about every stop on her comedy book tour, she manages to get in a dig at Elizabeth Edwards--who called her out on Coultergeist's disgusting last attempt at attention--dismissing her as "Lizzy" (gee Ann, you wouldn't happen to be trying out for the road show of "Heathers, The Musical," would you? Remember, "bulimia is so '87") but Tucker just can't get past the tabloid comment. He tells Ann he'll wait to get confirmation on the Enquirer story the next time he's at the supermarket -- and as the segment comes to a close and she stares doe-eyed into the camera Tucker slips this in:

Carlson: "Good luck at Safeway."

And then there's this... it's scary how far she has to go to out do herself...The smell of desperation just reeks from her.
