Laura Ingraham To Tea Party: Avoid ‘Stupid Comments’ On Women, Abortion (VIDEO)

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Conservative pundit Laura Ingraham said Tuesday that she’s not surprised that the tea party has seen “some upsurge in its popularity and in its donations” following revelations that the Internal Revenue Service improperly targeted such groups, but she warned the conservative wing of the GOP to not squander the moment.

During an interview on Fox News Channel, Ingraham cautioned the tea party against adopting “kind of a victim status mentality” and said that, ultimately, the movement’s success in future elections will depend on the quality of candidates.

“You can’t have people making stupid comments about, you know, women and abortion,” Ingraham said.
