Ann Coulter and W.H. Mallock: Stranger Than Fiction

• In 2006 The New Republic published "A Defense of Ann Coulter," which some liberal readers took to be a satire. Mallock's first novel was a satire titled The New Republic.

• Coulter: Slander: Liberal Lies Against the American Right (2002). Mallock: A Critical Examination of Socialism (1908).

• Mallock's 1889 article, "Cowardly Agnosticism: A Word With Professor Huxley" argues that Darwinian science constitutes a "new religion" — almost exactly the thesis of Coulter's Godless: The Church of Liberalism (2006).

• In a 2007 CNBC interview, Coulter said that Christians "just want Jews to be perfected," prompting one conservative blogger to call her a "rabid ANTI-SEMITE" ( Mallock's A Human Document contains "extremely distasteful anti-semitic passages" (Tom Phillips).

• Mallock wrote the cryptically titled A Human Document. Coulter is Legal Affairs Correspondent for the oddly named website Human Events.
