Adam Corolla & Ann Coulter

Hey, isn't a Corolla one of those crappy Japanese economy cars? Okay, that's better. A quick google search turns up a picture of the 2006 model(right top), which I have to say is much better looking than I remember. No, Adam Corolla (left) is currently (among other things) the host of a crappy morning show. The local rock station in town carries it because after Howard Stern left for Sirius, there was a vacuum created in the morning show department. Actually, I'd rather they'd found a way to keep Howard, he was at least funny at times. Hell, they could have even created their own morning show with local talent, but no. It's enough to make me start turning off my radio before I go to sleep each night.

So anyway, the other morning Ann Coulter (right) was to be a guest on his show, but she had the wrong number and was late phoning in. Here is the transcript of their conversation:

ADAM CAROLLA: Ann Coulter, who was supposed to be on the show about an hour and a half ago, is now on the phone, as well. Ann?


CAROLLA: Hi Ann. You're late, babydoll.

COULTER: Uh, somebody gave me the wrong number.

CAROLLA: Mmm... how did you get the right number? Just dialed randomly and eventually got to our show? (Laughter in background)

COULTER: Um, no. My publicist e-mailed it to me, I guess, after checking with you.

CAROLLA: Ahh, I see.

COULTER: But I am really tight on time right now because I already had a-

CAROLLA: Alright, well, get lost.

He then proceeds to hang up on her. Can you say Rosie O'donnell? I was looking at my radio, aghast at how rude he had just been. Mr. Carolla needs to apologize to her, and do it now. To be fair, she did call in late and she did say that she was really tight on time, but still. With her being right in the middle of a book promotion tour, I can imagine how tight her time really is. Add to that the fact that she had the wrong number... What compounds the issue even more is that she was invited as a guest, as I understand it, by the shows host, Adam himself. I have but one word for this, and it is "Ambush". Pure and simple. Grow up Mr. Carolla, grow up now and give her the apology she is entitled to.
