Laura Ingraham is a media pundit
. Her first gig was editor of The Dartmouth Review
in the 1980's. One of her most famous stunts was the unintended "outing" of a lot of gay Dartmouth students when she and her then boyfriend Dinesh D'Souza
secretly recorded and transcribed a meeting of gay student activists. In her denfense, conservative students on Dartmouth's campus were being systematicly descriminated against by the college administration (more on that here: http://www.dartreview.com/history/index.html) -- so stupidity might be understandable.
After her time at Dartmouth, Ingraham moved on to Washington, D.C. and became a speech writer in the final years of the Regan administration. She then went to law school at the University of Virginia before clerking for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
In the mid-nineties, she became a paid talking head for CBS News weekend edition and a corporate lawyer. Finally during the Clinton scandals she quit her law job and hosted a show on MSNBC. When the scandal died down the show was canceled and Ingraham worked at the IWF (which actually does more than pingouin gives it credit for) and hit the lecture circuit.
Then in 2001 she was signed by Westwood One and hosts a weeknight talkshow on their radio network.
pingouin is right about one thing: she is a babe
