On last night's Hannity & Colmes, Coulter said, "My human punch lines are gone and I'm still here." (After doing months of research, I can't seem to turn it off.) Indeed, liberals can no longer snooker Americans into believing that any of their messengers have some sort of absolute moral authority. Following, Godless: The Church of Liberalism, Americans saw these phony messengers as irrelevant to policy debate. Perhaps the most definitive example of this is John Edward's spiral into oblivion. Don't take my word for it, check the Vegas odds. According to the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, "Some of the best developed evidence on the power of prediction markets comes from political markets set up by the University of Iowa. These markets have been running since 1988 and have maintained a record of prediction accuracy much better than that of the Gallup polls."

According to Intrade.com, every time the Edwards presidential campaign (via Elizabeth Edwards) tries to engage Coulter in a catfight, his price plummets. His lowest point was after Elizabeth Edwards' "surprise" call-in to Hardball with Chris Matthews in June 2007. Now that can't be good for a girl's self-esteem. Next thing you know he'll be asking Elizabeth, "Does this tie make me look fat?"

Coulter believes it's important to go after liberal's influential institutions. Why waste one's time with a minion when you can take down the leader? Coulter writes, "This is why I attack the New York Times and Harvard, rather than loser liberals in the red states whose idea of a bold statement is to pass gas in church. I'll get into it with the rulers of your little army. They at least call the shots."

"America's leading Ann Coulter historian" was pleasantly surprised after reading the book cover to cover. In past book reviews, I've included several of my favorite quotes.

This time I'm telling Townhall readers: Just buy the book.
