Dr. Laura Schlessinger announced Tuesday night that she would end her radio show following her N-word rant last week.

I have been following this story rather closely and it makes me wonder about something:

Let's say that this time it wasn't about the N-word but her saying the same homophobic crap she said ten years ago.  Would the public backlash be strong enough to force her to give up her show (as it is now)?

Probably not. I can't think of another word that's so... geared towards explosive reactions as that.

I saw that, and she went on this long spiel about how her first amendment rights were being stepped on.  Apparently to her, first amendment rights means that you get to be a complete butt-face AND get away with it.  NPR did a nice little piece about it:

I'm sure she'll find another way to bleat her boorish whims to the masses.

This is one of those times when I wish there was a way to inject reality into people's veins.  Does she not realize that with that attitude, she can't really complain if someone made scathing comments and slurs about her?

I have never heard her radio show, the transcript of the conversation is telling, there is certainly some latent hostility there, the fact that she later apologized and then after announcing the end of her radio show, flip-flopped and decried the violation of her rights; pick a position and have the conviction to stand by your choice.

I stumbled upon a fairly thought provoking op-ed from the Huffpo.

This is why I'm not giving in to the temptation to have a Schadenfreude Party right now.
