Ann Coulter demands the wrath of Allah upon her

LOS ANGELES, Calif., USA - Conservative talk-show personality - and rapidly aging - Ann Coulter has been complaining that no matter what nasty things she says about Islam and people in the Middle East, she can't get any Muslim clerics angry enough to issue a fatwa, calling for her death.

And this is a woman who knows how to insult. Ask John Edwards, or actually anyone in public life who dares agree publicly with any progressive position these days. Her resemblance to a harpy at rest is not just a pose.

She told Esquire magazine (the British version) that she is jealous of writer Salman Rushdie who had such a fatwa issued (calling for his death) after he published his famous book The Satanic Verses, a book which clerics said was blasphemous.

It seems the darling of the rightwing nut-job talk shows thinks that such a death sentence would sell a few more of her books and perhaps get her some notoriety since her shrill speeches and performances are starting to fall flat with even the most conservative of audiences.

She might have more luck baiting the Hell's Angels in Oakland. They have their own version of a fatwa.
