"It's not just a radio show. It's an addiction"

For those of you who aren't aware of Laura Ingraham, you should be.

She's one of those "crazy conservative" radio talk show hosts, except she's not.

She's a University of Virginia Law graduate, but with much more of a head on her shoulders than that other alum, Katie Couric.

I was introduced to Laura in the summer of 2004 by JEB, who began listening to her when she moved to Austin. We now have gotten my dad hooked on it too. I get at least a biweekly phone call from JEB with another example of how she and Laura were separated at birth, and I think it just might be so.

The thing that makes her show worth listening to is that she's not a mouthpiece for the Republican party, she's a Conservative Thinker. And her show isn't all politics. She'll make just as much fun of John Kerry as she will of Jennifer Aniston. She books guests on her shows who talk about issues I've never thought of, and are usually fascinating. Her show is anything but ordinairy, and as much as the left would like to classify her as "just another Ann Coulter," (or a Conservative Stepford wife as I heard some lefty refer to them recently) her rants have more substance than most popular conservative talk show hosts out there right now, on radio or television.

I'm pretty sure she comes on at noon on A.M. 590 in Boise, and she's on at 8:00 a.m. on 1370 A.M. here in Austin. If you're not familiar with her, I suggest you become so soon. And don't blame me if you get addicted.
