And a dirty dozen more

Laura Ingraham is a staple of conservative talk radio and Ann Coulter knock-off. During the 1980s, Ingraham was the first female editor of the Dartmouth Review and then a speechwriter in the Reagan administration. During the 1990s, she became a commentator for CBS and MSNBC. She launched her radio show in 2001. She occasionally filled in for Bill O'Reilly and other Fox News hosts.[1] She currently hosts her own Fox News program, The Ingraham Angle.

Dartmouth Review[edit]

Ingraham began her career as a pundit at the Dartmouth Review, Dartmouth College's student-run conservative rag. During her stint at the Review, she met and dated fellow wingnut Dinesh D'Souza and helped to out members of the university's gay-straight alliance.[2] Despite her status as a Dartmouth alum, she enjoys railing against "elites" with fancy-pants college degrees.[3]


At the 2016 Republican convention, Ingraham stuck out her right hand ambiguously in a way some have interpreted as a Nazi salute. The moral: Don't get too involved with far-right ideas or far-right people as Donald Trump has. If you do, ambiguous gestures by supporters are likely to be interpreted the wrong way.[4]
