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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
