4. This is especially ironic, since
When Coulter makes overt citations to print sources, they often end up being false! cf New York Times on Dale Earnhardt.

5. Story will be worthless if it is not picked up by MSM
so I am not celebrating anything yet.

19. There is this slight upside
I could be wrong...but I think there's a backlash against Coulter with those MSM types who still have (very hidden) some shred of integrity. She's not getting as many gigs as she used to get. She was quite the media darling for a while. The "go to girl" for some lightning.
But. She seems to have lost momentum. I think some of the MSM don't book Coulter just so they can brag that they "don't book Coulter". And they can use this plagiarism as an excuse to the suits as to why they don't want her on their show.

22. Her book-promoting appearances definitely were far fewer than before...
And when she was on screen, she was such a loon, that someone had to be asking themselves, "why did we book her?"

Go away, Ann, the crazy joke's gotten old.

6. HANG ON!!! TIN FOIL HAT!!
Are you telling that within hours of Coulter breaking ranks with the Cult of Bush, blaspheming the Diety, that she's nailed in a plagiarism scandal?

And that's not a coincidence?

11. Damn, the hat theories are flying right now aren't they?
There's so much to speculate about right now, it's making me giddy.

I hadn't thought of that, jfxgillis. Hhhmmmmm, makes me wonder....

12. Here's a quick way to check:
See if Drudge, too, picks this up.

If he puts it high on the page, the Bush Idolators are pushing the story.

18. He's gay and she's promiscuously not
Seriously.

They've been buddies for years, though, which is why if Drudge pushes this story it will almost have to be at the behest of his WH contacts.

17. You're absolutely correct
If Bush's waterboy Drudge carries it, you know the Republicans are out to get her.

Can you elaborate?

Thanks

21. Coulter absolutely HAMMERED the Roberts pick
on her blog today.

"Souter in Roberts Clothing" is the title.

The funny thing is, in my opinion she's on to something.

Roberts is slimy motherfucking corrupt corporatist in the not-so-great tradition of the 19th century Railroad attorneys who dominated the Court.

But he's no social conservative of the Scalia/Thomas mold.

26. Thanks
I saw that post right after I read this one. Seems like the bushies are going to have a hard time managing the fundie-corporatist rift.

This might get interesting.

27. I was immediately suspicious of all that "One for the Base" spin

The talk about the "one for the base" over the Roberts appointment came
out way too fast. But oddly, I think having the nuttiest of the righties
attacking Roberts will probably work in his favor.

Just for the record, I hate it when things work out that way.

10. The neocons are dropping the ball right and left
They are so far off their game, they don't know what in the heck to do. They are lost.

31. And they refer to Democrats as "trying to herd cats"
More and more it seems that trying to get Repubs to get their act together is beginning to resemble trying to herd a bunch of 3-legged blind cats, and all of them with the beginning stages of rabies.

25. Don't you have to be a JOURNALIST with at least a modicum of
credibilty before you can LOSE it?

That said, may she be laughed out of whatever hateful business she is in is called.

29. Next Jason Blair?
Who cares? She's way past that point.

She's already the "next" Leni Riefenstahl. I doubt she can beat that.

30. Just read it
It was mainly descriptions of things and eventhough she probably did cut and paste, I don't see much coming out of it. I was hoping for something more.

34. Woohoo! Busted. I've filed academic misconduct for this type of thing
with my freshmen.

You're going...down, MAnn.
