Ann Coulter’s new book "Godless: The Church of Liberalism" has created a storm of controversy, but an online poll sponsored by NewsMax.com reveals that Americans overwhelmingly support Coulter and strongly disagree with her critics.
In the book – which shot to the top of Amazon.com’s list of best sellers the day after it was published and has debuted at the No. 1 spot on The New York Times nonfiction list – Coulter criticizes four New Jersey widows who pushed for an independent commission to investigate the 9/11 attacks that killed their husbands, and backed Democrat John Kerry for president in 2004.
"These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzis,” Coulter wrote.
Hillary Clinton immediately lashed out at Coulter for what she called her "vicious, mean-spirited attack” on the widows and said the book should have been called "heartless.”
House Democrats from New York and Long Island signed a letter demanding an apology from Coulter, and two New Jersey Democrats sought to have the book banned in that state.
NBC's Matt Lauer also went on the attack against Coulter when she appeared on the "Today” show, and The New York Times said her book is "in need of flogging.”
But the NewsMax poll – which drew more than 90,000 respondents from sites across the Web, such as Drudge Report and The New York Times - shows that the establishment assault on Coulter and her book did not change many minds.
See what jealousy, envy and hate will get you? Of course. But the loons on the Left are too stupid to realize that there outright contempt for Coulter not only shows off their true colors, but it's done nothing but help Ann get to No. 1 on the NYTimes bestseller list.
