Right wing hate talker and Fox regular Laura Ingraham joined her cohort Megyn Kelly this Tuesday following the announcement that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor had just lost his primary race to TeaBircher challenger David Brat and as expected, she had some words of warning for Republicans who are daring to consider passing any type of immigration reform.

Ingraham has been demagoguing the issue of immigration reform since she's been on the air, and she's been going after Cantor for it on the radio day in and day out. She recently told Breitbart's site that President Obama "Instead of sending five Taliban MVPs over there, he could have just traded one Eric Cantor" for POW Bowe Berdgahl. For a sample of what her listeners are treated to, here's some of the ugliness she was spouting this week: Laura Ingraham Uses Taco Bell Ad To Mock Immigrant Children's Detention Plight.

Ingraham also told Kelly that unlike most of the conventional wisdom out there, if Republicans pass immigration reform, it's going to cost them the presidential race in 2016 because it's "going to drive a wedge down the middle" of the party. Ingraham ought to know all about driving wedges, because she's a master at it.
