Laura Ingraham's Tomboyish Past
School Yard Bullies Were Pounded by Laura Ingraham

There was nothing recessive about Laura Ingraham's fifth grade recess attacks on schoolyard bullies according to her elementary teacher, Miss Beulah Poole. "Laura was called our 'little enforcer'," said Miss Poole, now ninety seven and living in a retirement home in Fort Pierce, Florida.
"Laura would bring a hand full of rubber bands to class and during recess she would run up to Jimmy Throckmorton and fire a rubber band up his nose after he attacked either Wilmer Willis or little Billy Bammerman. I always thought that Laura would make a good fighter pilot in the Navy or Air Force, but she apparently decided that the microphone is mightier than the pen or Sidewinder missile," said Miss Poole.
"Once she hit Throckmorton in the groin with a croquette mallet and sent him to the hospital for two days,' said Poole who listens to the conservative radio talk show host religiously. "I don't agree with half of what she says, but just knowing that I had that ballsy little twit in my class keeps my interest up and I don't have much else to do at my age. When I heard that she was supporting the cutting of funding for public education I thought.....'now that's gratitude for you, I should have taken her rubber bands away and let Throckmorton pummel her," said the retired public school teacher.
