OK — on the scale of conservative commentators, she’s no Ann Coulter (Thank God!). But Ingraham has earned her ultra-conservative bona fides, so that’s scary for the rest of us. I guess the idea could be OK if Ingraham (or any other Fox conservative) would actually have the same type of sense of humor that Jon Stewart has. But we all know that Fox has an agenda, so whichever commentator they choose for their network is going to espouse the Fox party-line.
Yes, there’s no disputing that Stewart, Maher and others like him are liberals, but they’re not on networks that have a plain political agenda — Fox does. So even if I end up chuckling at the things Ingraham ends up saying, I’ll be doing so with a very big grain of salt.
