Andy Cobb Takes on Sharron Angle

If nothing else Ann Coulter knows how to generate some serious PR for herself. She hit the headlines numerous times yesterday after being bumped from a Today show appearance — Drudge declared her banned from NBC, NBC denied it, she’s been re-booked for tomorrow. She subsequently appeared on CBS’s The Early Show with Harry Smith this morning. Smith told Coulter that he’d read 150pp of her book and then asked her whether she really expected people to take her seriously when she’s “so goofy.” Cue liberal media bias insult.
