Conservative Pundit Ann Coulter Dead of Heart Attack
Ann Coulter, neo-conservative pundit and author of the New York Times bestsellers High Crimes and Misdemeanors, Slander, and Treason, was found dead in her home of an apparent heart attack, police sources said today.
"Given her high-profile career and outspoken public opinions," police spokesperson Trudy Wiegel said in a press conference, "we will of course be investigating her death. But at this point it looks like a simple heart attack."
Coulter, 43, was much in demand on the neo-conservative lecture circuit, and unnamed sources in the Medical Examiner's office have suggested that her "killer" was too much rich restaurant food and too much airline-related stress.
"That'll kill you right there," the source said. "Sitting in gate areas waiting for your flight to be canceled."
