Ann Coulter, it turns out, is a cottage industry in the publishing biz. A brief visit to the local bookstore here in the People's Republic of Alexandria, Virginia found four books BY Ann Coulter and at least two books ABOUT Ann Coulter.

One is named: Brainless: The Lies and Lunacy of Ann Coulter by Joe Maguire (who was a financial writer for Reuters and got fired after his book was published).

The other is named: Soulless: Ann Coulter and the Right-wing Church of Hate by my former Fox debate partner, Susan Estrich.

So, with a minimum of research - a click on Amazon; a Google search; and a trip to an actual bookstore - we have found at least three Liberals (including Edwards) who are actually making money on Ann Coulter's name.

Maguire's and Estrich's books contain the words: Brainless and Soulless. Coulter's book titles contain the following words: Godless, Treason, Lies, and Slander.

Do what I did. Walk through the "Political" section of your local book store. See if you find one with a title like, Everything's Going Fairly Well and I'm Pretty Happy About It.

That book isn't being published.

On the Secret Decoder Ring page today: Links to the Edwards fundraising appeal, two links to Coulter's bio, and an astonishing Mullfoto of the cover art of Coulter's and Estrich's books. Also a Catchy Caption of the day.
