I have mixed feelings about Dr. Laura's two conversations in question. First of all if I'm correct the first conversation where she used the word a several times because the "N" word it self was the actual topic of the conversation between she and her caller. I don't think any one should have had a problem with her using that word in the context of a conversation in which a person is asking her for her professional psychological advise on their issue with the word. Where I do have a problem with Dr. Laura is when she begins to defend her use of the word. Instead of sticking to the fact that it was in the context of psychological therapy from a professional to a caller whose issue was the word it self. He starts talking about "well black people say it to each other all the time". Uhm no. This is where Dr. Laura and a lot of Anglo people get it wrong. Black people don't walk around calling each other ***er. What they call each other is ***ga. These are two distinctly different words with two distinctly different definitions and I would suggest that if you're white you might want to remember this before you make the same mistake Dr. Laura did.

I think there's a huge problem with anyone who feels they're being persecuted because they don't get rewarded for saying the n-word. This is pretty racist: " Ah -- hypersensitivity. OK, which is being bred by black activists. I really thought that once we had a black president, the attempt to demonize whites hating blacks would stop, but it seems to have grown, and I don't get it."

I think I would be more surprised if Palin didn't glom onto Dr. Laura's absurdity ... and how much more powerful could Dr. Laura be without a platform to reach her "audience" ?

And I too will take advantage of my first amendment rights to say, Sarah, you and Dr. Laura are bat-sh*t crazy!

I don't think the EPL article was worth mentioning - it says pretty much nothing.

One thing that no one can refudiate: Sarah Palin is a real horse's a$$.

That's why I wouldn't read or see EPL. It further perpetuates the belief that divorce will solve all of your problems and you'll live happily ever after. Marriage takes work, divorce should only be utilized in dire circumstances. (Cheating/abuse/a problem that just can't be fixed.) I'm pretty sure Ms. Gilbert divorced her husband because she "needed to find herself." Yeah, not a good reason.
