Last month I detailed how Lott posted at least six and probably ten five-star reviews of his books to Amazon.com. Well, it may be that Lott isn’t the only conservative author who does this. Someone posting as “A reader from New York, NY” (which is where Coulter lives), has posted many five-star reviews of Ann Coulter’s books at Amazon.com. Each of these reviews is actually a detailed response to points raised in negative reviews. The writing style is similar to Coulter’s and the reviewer seems to have an uncanny insight into Coulter’s thought processes. The Nameless Blogger has the story.
Now, it is possible that Coulter has a fan in NY who has copied her style and has made a hobby of anonymously defending her in the Amazon.com and that fan knows how Coulter thinks, but I suspect that the “reader from New York, NY” is actually Coulter.
Update: The “reader from New York, NY” is denying everything:
I wrote that review (I am an Amazon customer dating back to 1999) and I am not Ann Coulter. The behind the scenes techies at Amazon can verify this (if they’re so inclined). And, except as a reader of her books, I have no connection to Coulter whatsoever. Try getting the facts, instead of inventing them off the top of your head, before shooting off your mouth.
I tried to see how many reviews of Coulter’s books the “reader from New York, NY” had posted and counted 36 five-star reviews before I got too bored to continue.
