Page Six in the New York Post reports today the rather bizarre news that Ann Coulter has had her jaw wired shut:


THAT although we didn't think it would be pos sible to silence Ann Coulter, the leggy reactionary broke her jaw and the mouth that roared has been wired shut...

AOL's Political Machine blog adds that this needed to take place "Because of a nasty fall last month" -- but not to fear, the timing is perfect:

She'll be back in a few weeks to record the audio for her latest book....

How convenient that this is revealed on the same day that Matt Drudge tells us what Coulter's new book is about:

"When it comes to bullying, no one outdoes the Left. Citing case after case, ranging from the hilariously absurd to the shockingly vicious, Coulter dissects so-called victims who are invariably the oppressors. For instance: While B. Hussein Obama piously condemned attacks on candidates' families, his media and campaign surrogates ripped open the court-sealed divorce records of his two principal opponents in his Senate race in Illinois." ...

The book is titled Guilty: Liberal "Victims" and Their Assault on America.

Shall we take this remarkable coincidence -- the first big burst of book publicity and the simultaneous announcement of the jaw wiring -- at face value? Gosh, I certainly hope it's a coincidence. I wouldn't want to think that Coulter is faking a serious injury, or even exploiting a real one, in order to inject herself into the story she plans to tell when she's hawking her book. After all, what better way to prove that liberals are nasty, vicious bullies than to tell a sob story about how they said mean, nasty things about you when you were injured and in pain (just before your book tour)?

Oh, that's an evil, horrible thing I just said. I guess I am a sadistic bully. I'm sure all the adulation and wolf whistles and requests for autographed copies she'll get on her tour and in her many appearances on TV networks she undoubtedly accuses of treason in the book can't possibly make up for the pain caused by the horrible thing I just wrote.
