Curiously Laura Ingraham is supposed to be someone who 'stands up for conservative women'. Yet when Meghan McCain criticized Ann Coulter, the best Ingraham could do was to make fun of the 24-year-old's body, joking that she didn't get a 'role in the Real World' because 'they don't like plus-sized models.'

Memo to Ingraham: This kind of neanderthal behavior is not all that becoming of a 'positive role model'. The message we should be all sending to women everywhere--right, left, and across the spectrum--is the truth: Our worth is defined not by how we look, but who we are.
