(Newser) – Ann Coulter has resumed her rightful place on the warpath, reports TVNewser, and this time hell hath no fury like the conservative pundit NBC scorned. Bumped from promoting her book on NBC's Today show, Coulter promptly went on Hannity & Colmes to denounce the diss as “a set-up to block me from other TV shows,” and appeared on CBS’ Early Show today. NBC invited her to tomorrow’s show instead—but “I think I'll accept and then cancel at the last minute,” Coulter said.

What’s her long-term plan for revenge? “If my book does well I can buy NBC,” she said, referring to her latest controversial tome, Guilty. NBC denied initial reports that Coulter was banned for life, claiming the author’s slot was canceled in favor of Middle East news—but gossip blogger extraordinaire Perez Hilton kept his spot.
