Why Won't Ann Coulter Leave LA?

For a woman who claims to hate liberals so much, Ann Coulter has sure hung around lefty-lovin' Los Angeles lots lately.

You'd think that after her Wednesday night appearance on The Tonight Show, she would have flown back East immediately to boast that her new book "Godless" will debut at #1 on next week's New York Times best-seller's list.

But instead of taking Jet Blue (do Red Staters fly 'Blue?) on Thursday (back to Florida?) she appeared on the Hannity & Colmes show from the Fox studios in West LA where she uttered the funniest line of the week, "I'm a little tired of liberals exploiting my book to get on TV and sell newspapers."

And then on Saturday she attended the high school graduation party of Maia, Cathy Seipp's beautiful blogging daughter.

The fete was a who's-who of LA political bloggers, including Matt Welch and Luke Thompson, Joseph Mailander of the Martini Republic, Moxie, Andrew Breitbart of the Drudge Report, Pajamas Media head honcho Roger L. Simon, and of course recent birthday girl Emmanuelle Richard. Coulter was escorted to the garden party by Slate's Mickey Kaus.

You'd think with all those mostly-righty bloggers in attendance, someone would have written blogged about meeting the skinny blonde author, most recently best-known for calling the 9/11 widows "broads" and witches, but the reports are few and far between.

Fortunately our boy LYT was unashamed at dancing with the she-devil, proving that he, indeed, rules. Excerpts of his post after the jump.
