It’s a match made… well, somewhere.
As Dr. Laura faces media scrutiny for using a racist slur repeatedly on the air and for her subsequent comments on “Larry King Live,” she can rest assured that she has one supporter: Sarah Palin.

retreat…reload! (Steps aside bc her 1st Amend.rights ceased 2exist
thx 2activists trying 2silence”isn’t American,not fair”)
more powerful & effective w/out the shackles, so watch out
Constitutional obstructionists. And b thankful 4 her voice,America!
“Don’t retreat, reload” would make a nice bumper sticker, don’t you think?
Palin and Dr. Laura have both stated that Laura’s First Amendment rights
were revoked. It may be interesting to them to learn that actually, the
First Amendment – which protects our freedom of speech – actually only
protects us from government persecution. Nowhere in the amendment does
it say that sponsors can’t pull out of your radio show or that
protesters can’t protest what you say.
After her radio contract is up at the end of the year, Dr. Laura intends
to move into the future by focusing more attention on her blogs and
books. She makes it clear that she has no intention to retire.
