Why does Laura Ingraham depict herself as slave-owner president??
In her latest supposed book, "Of thee I Zing", right wing radio talk show host and Fox News contributor Laura Ingraham portrays herself as General George Washington crossing the Delaware. Why would Ingraham find this comparison appropriate?
Is she a political person aspiring to follow in President Washington's footsteps? No! Is she a military leader who can lead her country in times of crisis? No! Is she a person would always tells the truth, as young George supposedly did after chopping down a cherry tree? Based on her appearances on Fox News, I would say she has a definite problem being truthful. So why would she portray herself as our first president? Does she not realize that Washington was a slave owner? Is this her dog whistle to the racist fringes of the Tea Party ?
