I forgot to mention that John Dean's book Conservatives without Conscience just hit #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, in its first week on the list. Ron Suskind's The One Percent Doctrine remains at #3. (This is via e-mail; the Times will post the list this weekend.)

Ann Coulter's Godless drops from #4 to #5 in its sixth week on the list. Her books sell, but this one had only two weeks at #1, unlike, say, Slander, which was #1 for eight weeks. She's slipping.

Travis G. has a great post at Sadly, No! from which it's clear that Ann's many remaining fans don't think of her as a satirist or a jokester, even when she's sentencing political enemies to death. (Though they can't seem to agree on whether the staff of The New York Times should be hanged or shot.) I'll add that when I go to Captain's Quarters, a blog ad on the right from talk radio station WMCA says, "WHY ANN COULTER IS RIGHT" -- not "WHY ANN COULTER IS HILARIOUS" or "WHY ANN COULTER'S FANS CAN TAKE A JOKE, UNLIKE THOSE HUMORLESS, POLITICALLY CORRECT LIBERALS."
