    I think Colbert is funny sometimes. Ingraham was there to promote her book. And here you are, talking about it. Looks like it worked

    I don't think she sold many more copies of her book because of that appearance.

    Talking about her, and buying her book are two very different things.

    Don't see how you can quantify that either way. Your statement started out OK, but after the third word, your logic gets kind of fuzzy.

    Classy of you to go straight for the personal attack. Good job!

    But I'm sure Laura Ingraham is happy that you're here to defend her.

    You considered that a personal attack? Holy shit, you must live encased in bubble wrap in order not to explode from any human contact. I didn't say you were incapable of thought (as evidenced by the fact that you noticed that I am indeed, classy), but just in this instance, after you said "I don't think", you gave an example of that.

    However, if I am wrong in my theory, then you can quantify your remark. Tell me. How many more copies did/will she sell based on that appearance? And conversely, how many sales did/will she lose as a result of it?

    I doubt Laura Ingraham knows nor cares what I have to say. But, that may now change if she reads this and discovers that I am classy.

    Dude, who the fuck cares?

    I don't know if her appearance on the Colbert report will help her sell more or less books. More importantly, I don't give a shit.

    I'm not sure why this is such a big issue for you, jumping down my throat to defend Ms. Ingraham. I stated my opinion, which is that Colbert making a fool of her isn't going to help her sell books. I could be wrong. More importantly, I don't care.

    Let me repeat: I don't care.

    And as per your attacks - of course I've seen much worse personal attacks. But that doesn't validate yours.
