I'll take "Adam's Apple" for... um.... nothing?!?

I shouldn't allow my personal problems get in the way of blogging but there you have it...

A diary on DKOS pointed me to this, Ann Coulter showing up to stump for Bob Beauprez and the event netted - ZERO - dollars for the Beauprez campaign (from ColoradoConfidential):
“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.
