ICON...OR IDIOT? The most controversial political commentator of our day, Ann Coulter has sparred with Katie on the "Today Show," faced down Alan Dershowitz on "Geraldo" and sparked stormy confrontation on scores of college campuses. The author of three New York Times bestsellers, Coulter has a mad-cap mouth and an allergy to political correctness. But who is the woman behind the stinging barb and the quick wit? And what does she really believe when you strip off the rhetoric? Is it true what they say about Ann? takes you behind the bombast through original interviews with the woman Al Franken calls the reigning diva of the hysterical right and who George magazine selected as one of the twenty most fascinating women in politics.

Ann is the closest thing we have today to another H. L. Mencken. And she comes up with the most devastating insults since the Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts. The Left hates her even more than Bush because her criticisms hit too close to home. If she were one of them, they would find nothing wrong with her style. In my opinion, here's one of her best insights: before 9/11, the Left was hostile to all religion. After 9/11, they gave Islam a free pass because anyone who's anti-American can't be all bad. This is why homophobic, misogynist Islam is now the politically correct religion: because if you're anti-American you'll be forgiven anything. The only way Hollywood will ever turn against Castro would be if he were to become pro-American. Let me close with this paraphrase of the Green Lantern Oath: In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight. For those who worship evil's might, Beware my power: Coulter's light!
