I cringe even thinking about this.

My aunt stated to me on her last visit that, “Laura Ingraham is the Rachel Maddow of Fox News. She is so intelligent!”

Embarassing and mortifying I am related to some one who could utter such a thing.

I keep trying to forget, but it was too shocking of a comment to ever erase from memory, no matter how hard I try!!

Then on the other hand wonder how she knows anything about Rachel?????

2. You can't pick your relatives.

And every gene pool has a shallow end.

Laura Ingraham may be intelligent (though I doubt it); but regardless, she's mean and hateful - so what good is her intelligence even if she has any?

8. Lol. Definitely. I'm pretty sure she's capable of being intelligent,

but that her personality has interfered with her judgement and what she has accepted as information all her life. Same with all those whose radical/reactionary, personality-driven wishes require massive dishonesty to support.

Mainstream people are often wrong, of course, but mainstream thinking is the product of people who overall have a relatively greater ability to recognize and accept truth.

3. Sorry, But I Could Not Have Left That As It Was

I would have told her that Rachel doesn't attack or insult people, especially high school students whose school had a mass murderer running around their school. Rachel backs up what she says, not just make untrue and unfair assertions. Rachel is a mature adult, not a childish and petty person.

6. Intelligent at Fox News ....consider the company around her

Tucker collects flies on his gape mouth and the coffee maker is smarter than Hannity. Fox & Friends build sofa cushion forts during commercial breaks. Pirro is just sure all the Facebook posts equal ratings. Every Monday morning they used to look for insight from Trump.
