Trying to drum up interest in her new book, Ann Coulter took to Fox News to slam Liz Cheney, Todd Akin and other "hucksters" and "shysters" who, she says, are ruining the Republican Party.

Complaining that the GOP is insufficiently devoted to actually winning elections, Coulter said, "the problem is we have hucksters, shysters, people ripping off the Republican party for their own self-aggrandizement, for their own egos, to make money."

The right-wing pundit then took aim at Liz Cheney, saying, "I love Liz Cheney, but why should we be having a rancorous primary against a good Republican senator other than for Liz Cheney’s ego?" Cheney is currently running for Senate in Wyoming, challenging incumbent Republican Senator Mike Enzi.

Via Politico, here's video of Coulter's outburst:
