Dr. Laura: Hard to Say I'm Sorry?
Back in the 80's, the rock group, Chicago had a big hit with "Hard to Say I'm Sorry." I beg to differ. Just look at Dr.Laura Schlessinger.
The good Dr. was just on Larry King talking about how distraught she was after her show where she used the N Word and how she apologized before the "special interest groups" started calling for her head.
OK. Kinda like when I broke something as a child and decided that I would punish myself, instead of waitin' for mama to get the belt.
"Oh, mother dear. Truly I must be punished! Banish me to my room with no spinach tonight..."
So, Dr. Laura has decided that since her contract is up at the end of the year that she will no longer do radio but will do other things to regain her Freedom of Speech.
Is that Right wing speak for, "Sean Hannity just got a new co-host?"
How much do you wanna bet that come January 1st, she winds up on Fox.
Schlessinger should step down now! December is too long for her to get her just desserts.
If there is any justice in the universe, come tomorrow morning, when Schlessinger's audience tries to turn in to her show, they will find it replaced by the "Public Enemy Greatest Hits Hour."
However, the Right Wingers are the masters of making the best of a bad situation. Even when they lose they win.
Now that she has done the dirty deed, you can bet that the Tea Party and the rest of the Right Wingers will hook their homegirl up with a new gig.
Racists have a way of looking out for each other.
You can best believe that come tomorrow, Laura Sclessinger will be the Right's new martyr; the patron saint of racist radio hosts, everywhere.
