There's also some funny YouTube postings where she is factually wrong, but never in doubt, even when called on it.

I like that Orb called her names too. *laugh*

I guess I don't get how one can call such ignorance "schtick," but I guess that's one label for such behaviour, whether from Coulter, the WBC or the neo-Nazis or whoever else. I have other names for such things....
Lemme just break it down for you so you can use it for future reference:

Neo-Nazis: Don't do it for "shtick". They do it because that's what they believe. They're not in it for ratings or advertisers or to make money.

WBC: Probably doesn't *mind* a little publicity, but don't do their thing for ratings, ad revenue or selling subscriptions. They do their thing because that's what *they* believe is the right thing to do, and the tasty way to do it. Yup, like Quaker Oatmeal. Samie same as the Neo-Nazis.

Ann Coulter: Does it for the ratings. The shock. The awe. The conversations around the water cooler or tree-hugging shin-dig that eventually leads to some semblance or remaining relevant. Selling ad space, making money, etc. No different in principle than someone like Howard Stern, but with a WHOLE other direction.

Don't confuse the latter with the 2 former. They may seem a lot alike but have little in common other than stirring the .... pot once in a while.
