Does anyone here know her personally, I mean at least indirectly? She was a huge faghag when David Brock was a Republican. Now she is a devout RC single mommy with two adopted kids. Sum1 said Maddow implied she was a lesbian? If that's true, isn't she skating on really thin ice?
inquiring minds wanna know!
Well darling, she never licked my snatch, but she does have a remarkably low voice.
Doesn't she have a gay brother? She was Drudge's hag.
I'd love to know what Rachel Maddow's take on her is if she is, indeed, closeted.
She does have a gay brother. I think that was a huge thing for her, coming o a place where she could accept him as gay.
well r3, she certainly has a funny way of "accepting" him being gay.
Randi Rhodes always calls her Laura Ingalls or little halfpint and it always cracks me up.
Ann C's gfriend.
Shes a sanctimonious cunt. A few years ago I saw here on some news/talk show (maybe Chris Matthews?) and she was complaining how people who chose to have lots of kids are not respected and how they are viewed as selfish by some people. She went on the say that she came from a large family and it worked out great for her parents because they had her and her many siblings to do yard and house work. Really. People who have children and then boast about using them as some free labor pool are not selfish?
People can have as many or as few children as they please. Are we now trying to start new controversies over a matter which has been completely settled for decades? The only aspect of family planning which remains controversial is abortion, and even the most rabid anti-abortion activists agree that if a woman gives birth to a child that she does not want she has a right to give it up for adoption.
[quote] People who have children and then boast about using them as some free labor pool are not selfish?
Professional servants are expensive. It's cheaper to marry them or breed them than to pay them.
R8 My point is on one hand she felt it was wrong to say people who have lots of children are selfish and then turn around and brag about how they can be exploited by lazy parents who dont want to do house work. Its a pretty fucked up line of reasoning.
How so, R4? I've found Ingrahm to be a little more patient when it comes to gay issues than some of the more reactionary talk radio hosts like Savage and Levin.
You take my self, you take my self control...
She's great. Really intelligent and not a pushover.
R14, is that a joke, or are you a Republican?
She's almost as bigoted and ignorant as Ann Coulter.
She and Sweet Annie Coulter are BFF -- mannish STR8 never married old white chicks gotta stick together ya know ....
R14 If by really intelligent, you mean she can tell you're so stupid you will believe the lies she spews out, then maybe you're right. Then again, that you are a chump and will believe anything someone tells you is not too hard to figure out
In his book BLINDED BY THE RIGHT, David Brock talks about how Ingraham and Ann Coulter would go to gay bars/clubs with him on occasion.
But when you read or hear the overall level of contempt that they spewed about gays for a number of years, you ahve to wonder what kind of schizoid mindset they had to do this.
Brock also talks about how Ingraham would fly into these incredible rages and make threats. He recounts hearing from a college friend of Ingraham's that Ingraham once pulled a gun on an ex-boyfriend.
He also says that he sometimes felt sorry for Ingraham because of her "difficult relationship with her father."
So there's some negative undercurrents in that family. And Coulter's too, I'll bet.
Ingraham once said that she appreciated her gay brother in that he lived his life quietly and "with dignity" instead of proactively fighting for "special rights".
Sounds like a real f**ked up Catholic family.

TRANSATION: I was so ashamed of having a gay brother, but thank heavens he didnt embarrass me in public by expecting to be treated the same way every American expects.
I like her a lot. She is smart, and not a hack.
she's as big a nasty cunt in real life as on tv. She it way too dumb to pretend she is anything but the hate- and rage-filled cunt that she really is. Hates men AND women equally.
Aren't they both lesbians, R16? It seems a little coincidental to me that they both just happen to be middle-aged women who are never-married and who also have deep voices.
Looks like R21 is the nasty cunt. You should really talk to someone about your anger issues, dipshit
[quote]I like her a lot. She is smart, and not a hack.
She is not smart at all. She panders to her right-wing nutty base like all the other conservative talk show hosts.
She wasn't much better than Dick Morris in predicting the election in November. She called Obama ignorant during the debates and then wrote a piece the week before the election saying Obama's ground game was overrated and wouldn't amount to much.
Just because you're a dumb cunt r23 doesn't mean the rest of have to be. Laura is a vile person in person...deal with it cunt.
Perhaps Laura is posting here in her own defense/
her actions as a dartmouth student are simply not forgiveable. they are indicative of a maniacal, sadistic personality, and her life since that time long ago hardly counters that assessment.
[quote]You should really talk to someone about your anger issues, dipshit
Pot meet kettle.
What did she do at Dartmouth, R27?
And btw, why is there someone on this thread who is trying to convince us what a wonderful person Laura Ingraham is?
It wouldn't surprise me at all if she lurks here. Her prurient interests need to be stoked and she's the sort who might not elicit a lot of it in real life. She's probably as snarly with her own kind as she is with everyone else.
Sorry if you're eating while I post this.
Years ago, The New York Post in one of their Page Six "sightings" blurbs said that Ingraham and Lindsey Graham were spotted playing "tonsil hockey" at a restaurant.
Is anyone surprised that the right-wing NYPost would "in" the obviously gay Graham?
R27 She infiltrated a gay student union meeting and secretly taped them. She then published the names of everyone who belonged in the student paper. If that wasn't bad enough, she managed to send copies of it to some of the students parents. Her justification was the parents have a right to know what their sons and daughters are doing at school.
Verdict: She is a cunt.
Hey R25 get back to your drive thru...you have customers honking their horns, lol!!!
Lindsay who's so obviously gay and so obviously in love with John McCain it hurts Graham?????
Didn't she used to date Keith Olbermann? Wonder if he was the one she pulled the gun on?
I think Laura Ingraham is a closeted lesbian - Rachel Maddow has hinted at it in the past, and she would know who the lesbians are in the showbiz world.
I hope someone outs her one day.
I am telling you -- she is and so is Ann Coulter.
Wow, r31. I don't know whether Schlussel really believes what she's writing or if she took the opportunity to bash her rivals. Michelle Fraudkin? Lol. How old does she have to be before she discards the adolescent mean girl humor? It sounds like she's jealous these other two ladies have been featured on Fox and have wider listener/viewer/readership.
Are conservative females generally this bitchy with each other?
"How old does she have to be before she discards the adolescent mean girl humor?"
Try asking Ann Coulter the same question, R39.
Yeah, Ann, too. I've never heard or read Malkin, but I'm sure she has the same style. It's just so funny to see them go at it.
R36 -- she must've dated Keith a LONG time ago, cuz he HATED the Bush Administration, and its associated fundies. I cannot see them together AT ALL (and don't give me the Carville - Matalin example).
She and Olbermann are rather unhinged people. They find each other for all sorts of different reasons besides politics.
Amazing to see people here behave in a manner they so readily condemn right wingers for being. I can't believe the number of time I've seen the word cunt thrown around. You'd all be screaming bloody murder if Hillary Clinton or Susan Rice were talked about in such a way.
There's a significant "It's OK if you're a Democrat" mindset among liberals (disclaimer: I am a Democrat), who moan and groan about hypocrisy among Republicans. Things like Ted Kennedy's being a manslaughterer, Clarence Thomas being "an unacceptable pig" while Bill Clinton's using his position as AR guv to pressure, if not outright force, women is shrugged off.
Ted Kennedy is not a murderer - the CIA tried to kill him by sabotaging his car by damaging the breaks. That is what led to the death of the woman in his car and his own narrow escape.
R47 tinfoil hats are so last season.

R31, why would you link us to that right wing troll Debbie Schlussel. She's as bad as they are. Sadly Debbie's dreams of being a sought after bleached blonde talking head spouting hateful nonsense have all been for naught. She's rather hideous in a trailer park style - worse than Laura or the other bitch, Ann.
In any event I have told this story before here. A friend (really more a friend of a friend) and Laura were both associates at Bob Bennett's firm - at the time Hogan Hartson. They became friends and my friend liked Laura. I have no idea why and I never asked. I didn't want to hear anything nice about her. But the friend and her husband were both staunch Democrats - the husband having a nice Clinton admin appointment.
My friend was on Bob's defense team when they represented Bill Clinton in the Monica Lewinksy matter. After all those years at the firm she didn't make partner because as she told me she wasn't considered aggressive enough to bring in paying clients. I believed her.
I did learn that Laura's fiance dumped her when she got cancer and supposedly for that reason. She was devastated. That's all I know.
OP, she outed gay men in college because their AIDS would spread on cafeteria utensils. She secretly taped them. The woman is a nutcase.
SHE WAS NEVER A FAG HAG. David Brock was not allowed to come out of the closet.
[quote][R31], why would you link us to that right wing troll Debbie Schlussel.
Schlussel's far Right crap helped get all the Norwegian kids get massacred. She's a rabid Zionist cunt, who should be thrown out of the fucking country. She's dangerous.
ok mea culpa, but the story about Ingraham outing people at Dartmouth is true.
Rachel Maddow has hinted in the past that Laura Ingraham is a lesbian, and I think she should go further and out her completely.
What kind of "hints" exactly has she made?
When Rachel Maddow was interviewed several years ago on someone's show about some recent comments Ingraham had made, Maddow joked that she and Ingraham used to be lesbian lovers.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
