The Weekly Pundit Index

Ann Coulter: Down 30%.

In a column on The Passion of The Christ last week, Coulter wrote, "Being nice to people is, in fact, one of the incidental tenets of Christianity (as opposed to other religions whose tenets are more along the lines of 'kill everyone who doesn't smell bad and doesn't answer to the name Mohammed')." Then, for good measure, she added: "(The Prophet) Muhammad's many specific instructions to kill non-believers whenever possible."

One week after the blatently racist column appeared, the backlash is only begin to build. Sell now. [via Daifallah]

Coulter is the second pundit to plummet on the TSE and the NYSE recently: Kalle Lasn's value also sank by 30% last week after an ill-advised merger between Adbusters and the Protocols of Zion.

Analysts say we can take this as a sign that the Old Media pundit bubble is bursting. They recommend withdrawing your assets from Lasn and Coulter and investing in Blogs immediately.
