Controversy at Laura Ingraham's book signing? (video)

This could be good, or this could be bad, but it will definitely be interesting.

Political pundit and right wing writer Laura Ingraham comes to Las Vegas Tuesday in what will likely be a gathering place for fans as well as protesters in this city with an unemployment rate of more than 14 percent. The former TV journalist and current commentator will sign copies of her recent, and rather tongue-in-cheek, book “The Obama Diaries” at Borders inside Town Square at 6 p.m.

In a campy press release, Ingraham states she received a package on the hood of her car May 10 of this year “from an anonymous source that will change the history of the United States and the legacy of President Barack Obama.” In the tone of the more serious Watergate scandal era, Ingraham says a deep voice from a stairwell in the underground garage where her car was parked, in the Watergate complex (get it?), said, "Just read it. You’ll know what to do.”

She did and she does! The big black book of secrets was published into a colorful book July 13 by a division of Simon and Schuster and comes out at a whopping 400 pages.

Excerpts from Laura Ingraham’s "The Obama Diaries:"

Obama on Sarah Palin:

"Hell, doesn’t Palin have anything better to do than criticize me? Shouldn’t she be back home shooting some endangered wolf species from a helicopter?" (April 9, 2010)

Vice President Joe Biden on Michelle Obama:

"She’s kind of like a black Hillary Clinton. I mean that in a good way." (May 5, 2009)

Michelle on being First Lady:

"I’ll be damned if all this fabulosity is going to go to waste reading Dr. Seuss to snot-nosed kids all day." (January 23, 2009)

Obama on his visit to the Vatican:

"If I can ingratiate myself with a few more of these red-hats, the pope thing might not be a bad follow-up to the presidency." (July 10, 2009)

Ingraham is taking time from hosting her eponymous “The Laura Ingraham Show,” to tour the book and is a regular columnist and television commentator, you may have seen her as guest co-host on "The O'Reilly Factor."

Get to Borders at 2190 N. Rainbow Blvd. early if you want to get some good face time with this authoritative comedian.
