And the winner of "Name Coulter's Next Book" is... I reprint the following Washington Post article in full because many people do not wish to commit the act of registration that access otherwise requires.
Think what you will of her political views, but columnist Ann Coulter certainly has a gift for writing provocatively titled (and best-selling) books. To wit: "Treason: Liberal Treachery From the Cold War to the War on Terrorism" and "Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right." Trying to one-up her, a campus-centered offshoot of the Center for American Progress sponsored a "Name Ann Coulter's Next Book" contest and released the results yesterday.
The winner: "Roosevelt: Wheelchair-Riding, America-Hating Terrorist," submitted by Ryan Sniatecki, 26, of Baltimore. "Sniatecki will take home his very own Ann Coulter talking action figure," announced campusprogress.org, a new Web site set up by the left-leaning Washington think tank. About 150 people entered the contest. Among the honorable mentions:
"Help: I'm Out of Liberal People, Places and Organizations to Hate."
"Pander: How Character Assassination and Name-Calling Will Make You Popular and Rich."
"Democracy: The Liberal Plot to Feed Your Children to the Poor."
"Ann: Doesn't Eat, Shoots, and Never Leaves." (That's a reference to Coulter's thin physique.)
Coulter offered a characteristically cutting response. "Well, at least now they're trying to be funny, a welcome change from all the vomiting and fainting after the election season," she told us by e-mail. Then the author blasted back a list of potential titles for her next tome:
"Tuesdays With Morons."
"The Five People You Meet in Line at the Welfare Office."
"It Takes a Village to Raise a Kid With A.D.H.D., Rage Issues, and an Eating Disorder."
