FOX News Channel is chock-full of smart women. News analyst Monica Crowley served as foreign policy assistant to President Richard Nixon, wrote two history books on Nixon's life, and holds a doctorate in international relations from Columbia University. Business anchor Brenda Buttner graduated from Harvard University with honors and went on to be a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University, where she graduated with high honors with a degree in politics and economics. Anchor and show host Linda Vester is a magna cum laude graduate of Boston University with a journalism degree. She also holds an honors diploma from the Sorbonne in France, studied Middle East affairs in Egypt as a Fulbright Scholar, and speaks Arabic and French.

Syndicated radio talk show host and best-selling author Laura Ingraham is a graduate of Dartmouth College and the University of Virginia School of Law. She worked as a former white-collar criminal defense attorney, law clerk on the Supreme Court of the United States, and Reagan administration speechwriter.

And syndicated columnist and best-selling author Ann Coulter -- who now has a sharp-talking action figure modeled after her -- graduated with honors from Cornell University and received her J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School, where she was an editor of The Michigan Law Review.

These women on the airwaves prove that you can be successful without compromising your IQ or your dignity. Being cerebral isn't a bad thing, Jessica. And no, that doesn't mean acting like a corn flake.
