Incendiary. Opinionated. Conservative. Lightning rod. Informed. Radical. Brave.
These words - and many more - have been used to describe political analyst and attorney Ann Coulter, one of the most recognizable faces and voices in American political commentary and political pop culture. Coulter's regular media appearances include Fox News' Fox and Friends and Hannity on Fox News, HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, NBC's The Today Show, Entertainment Tonight, ABC's Good Morning America and CBS' The Early Show. She has been profiled in several national publications, including Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and most notably, the cover story of the April 25, 2005 issue of TIME Magazine.
Coulter's reach and relevance transcends media form, forcing her advocates and critics to analyze their beliefs. She is the author of ten New York Times best-selling books, including "Never Trust A Liberal Over Three-Especially A Republican" (October 2013) and "Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama" (September 2012). Despite fiery critical debate about the tone and content of her book "Godless: The Church of Liberalism," it reached the No.1 spot on Amazon only two days after its release in 2006.
Harper's Bazaar described Coulter as "obsessed with protecting civil liberties and free speech." Ben Shapiro of Townhall.com a says, "Coulter isn't simply a terrific writer who makes it impossible to drink while reading her work (this produces the famed "Coulter milk-out-the-nose phenomenon). She is also a scholar."
A graduate of Cornell University (with honors) and the University of Michigan Law School, Coulter has worked as an attorney at the Center for Individual Rights (a conservative, public interest law firm), served as legal counsel to Sen. Spencer Abraham on the Senate Judiciary Committee and worked as an attorney at the U.S. Department of Justice. She also has practiced corporate law and clerked for the Eighth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals. In 2001, Coulter was named one of the Top 100 Public Intellectuals by federal judge Richard Posner, a President Ronald Reagan appointee.
