The "Paris Hilton of Conservatism"

The Evangelical Outpost has this take on "the couthless Coulter:"

Judging from book sales, LaShawn [Barber] isn’t the only one who appreciates “Coulter-Shtick.” But what I wonder is what will her admirers think when she taps out the conservative market and pulls a David Brock-style conversion to liberalism in order to sell even more books. Make no mistake: Coulter is playing you all for patsies.

I don't know that Coulter will ever convert to liberalism, but when you draw a crowd by being shocking, you can only maintain the crowd by increasing the shock. Eventually, the act wears thin. In Coulter's case, it won't be soon enough.
