The vaunted drawing power of Ann Coulter may be coming to an end.

Of course all the Fighting 101st-ers and the college boys impressed by her long legs and powerful adam's apple will still be lured by Ann's siren song of killing Liberals, Supreme Court Justices, Congresssmen, and Publishers.

But people who would seem to have some smarts - Rich Republicans - are looking like they want nothing more to do with her vicious vision.

How did a secret fundraiser by Ann Coulter in Colorado for Republican candidate Bob Beauprez go? It netted Zero Dollars!

That's right: nothing, nada, zilch, zero, bupkus, nor squat for the candidate:
"We found out the hard way," says former Beauprez for Gov campaign chief Steve Truebner, "that Ann Coulter is not a major draw for donors."

Nary a one showed up, according to Truebner, leaving Ms. Coulter and Mrs. Beauprez - the candidate himself was in D.C., working his day job - to hobnob in the Paramount's 2d-floor lobby with about a dozen earnest but penniless campaign volunteers, plus some KOA listeners who'd won free tickets to the Coulter show from the station and just happened to be in the vicinity.

Smiles were flashed, photos were taken, and cheese/crackers were eaten, just like at a real campaign event. The only things missing were the $1,000 checks.

Ah Ann, if you weren't such a wicked, lying, despicable, and hateful human, I might actually feel sorry for your worthless presence at this Republican fundraiser.

Psyche!
