More About Laura Ingraham
After graduating from Dartmouth College, Laura worked as a speechwriter in the final two years of the Reagan Administration at the White House, the Department of Transportation and the Department of Education. She went on to graduate from the University of Virginia School of Law, where she was Notes Editor of the Law Review. She served as a law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Ralph K. Winter on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. After clerking, Laura worked as a white-collar criminal defense attorney for Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom.
Laura launched "The Laura Ingraham Show" in 2001. In addition to hosting her own syndicated radio program, Laura is an author, frequent columnist, and television commentator. Her book The Hillary Trap: Looking for Power in all the Wrong Places, first released in June 2000, was recently re-released in an updated paperback version. Her second book, Shut Up & Sing: How Elites from Hollywood, Politics, and the UN Are Subverting America is a bestseller. Ingraham's most recent book, Power to the People, was released on September 11, 2007, and topped Amazon's bestseller list September 14.
In Power to the People, Ingraham focuses on what she calls the "pornification" of America. She discusses issues such as traditional family values, education, and American patriotism. Power to the People stresses the importance of getting involved in the culture:
"The main thread that runs through these topics I cover in the book is civic involvement and civic virtue. Get in the game. Start a blog, report on what is happening at your local PTA. If you are a parent, and you are disgusted at what you see on your kid's computer screen, do something. Track where your kids go on the Internet. Tell your kids that you are going to review where they are on the Internet. Be a parental filter. Learn about threats that face America - from within and out. Education is the first line of defense."
Laura's latest venture The Obama Diaries: Defeating Obama, Saving America is part fact, part fiction, all fun. Major media outlets love to describe the president as "no drama Obama," but The Obama Diaries tells a different tale. Through these "diary entries," readers will see past the carefully constructed Obama facade to the administration’s true plans to "remake America."

Typical Neocon Rantings Nov 2, 2007
Laura Ingraham is hysterical, the best comedic writer I've come across in years. This neocon nut job thinks liberals are "un-American" and that those who are not Baptist bible thumpers are "morally bankrupt". I could go into which ideology our Founding Fathers favored- conservative or liberal- but I'll just say this: if you think questioning political leaders, as our Founders did, is "un-American", or that protesting WAR is anything but Christlike, you'll probably love this book and reference it many times in debates with those of us with sense. But for those of us who prefer rational arguments to calling someone with whom we disagree "un-patriotic", we'll stick with authors who aren't headed for the loony bin.
The Truth Hurts, The 'elites' are not elite! Aug 20, 2007
Political commentator and radio talk-show host Laura Ingraham decries self-styled "elite" groups who believe themselves superior to those with traditional American values. She singles out mainstream media, academic intellectuals, and showbiz celebrities as well as the United Nations and antireligious and pro-immigration supporters. This is an interesting book and an easy read.
Don't waste your money!!! Aug 12, 2007
This book is a waste of time. It has no real substance. She constantly contradicts herself, and drones on and on about nothing.
Feels like a high school term paper Aug 10, 2007
I knew nothing of Laura Ingraham before picking up this book. Never heard her radio show, never read anything (that I'm aware of, at least.) Though I agree with much of what she says, she says it in a boring, repetitive, know-it-all, condescendingly-laughing-at-the-condescending, smarmy and whiny manner. The personal asides, where she describes those she disagrees with as failed actors or once-funny comedians may work on radio, but in print just come off as mean spirited and irrelevant. We care about the views, not the source.
Besides being smug and pompous, she is a mediocre writer. (And the typos--come on, guys....) Her prose reads like someone who talks extemporaneously for a living. And I don't think I learned anything new at all. The same ideas are expressed far more eloquently by many others. Mona Charen, Daniel Flynn, Peter Wood. Go to those authors to read excellent prose and thoughtful reasoning. This is stream of consciousness blather, a product that feels rushed to market. Books written in a hurry die equally fast. Save your time. Go elsewhere.
This is entertaining as all get out......... Jul 14, 2007
Once again, the reviewers are almost as good as the actual book. The Left are convinced that the author is the devil incarnate, while the Right can't quite think of her, as one of their own. Why the left even bothers to read this, knowing her slant of things, is almost beyond comprehension. She's kind of like Coulter---they just can't get enough of this stuff. As far as the right--the mind reels.For those of us not on the extreme, one way or the other,well, let me put it this way. Unless all of you checked this book out at your local library, or stole it---she got your money, didn't she???
