What Doctor Laura SHOULD have said

Posted By on Sun, Aug 15, 2010 at 11:06 AM

Doctor Laura "I never met a victim I couldn't despise" Schlessinger really went to town this week, dropping the N-Bomb more than ten times on her show, in response to a black woman who was married to a white man whose friends liked to use the word.

Instead of giving in to her baser instincts, the infamous Doctor Laura could have simply asked these questions:

"Lady, What's the hell is the matter with your husband, that he lets these mouth-breathers get away with this crap? Were the words ‘love and honor' not in your wedding vows? There is trouble in River City,and it starts with H, which stands for HUSBAND.

"And why are you putting up with this crap? Are you an emotional masochist?

"And why are you calling me, knowing that I am one of the most ignorant, callous people on talk radio today?"

Ah, well . . .

  • The dangers of wanting a president “who talks like us”

    Personally, I think things started going to Hell when folks were seriously asked, “Which candidate would you rather have a beer with?” Because, to be honest, there just aren’t all that many of my former drinking codkpaniopns I’d like to see in any positions of authority.

  • Patriotism as performance art

    Generally my feeling about standing for the National Anthem is the same as reciting the Pledge of Allegiance or taking part in school prayer (yes, I’m that old) - if you aren’t enthusiastic about what you are doing, well, it just becomes something you do to please others.
