    That's your roundabout way of saying that someone you don't like shouldn't be publically defending herself against public defamations. You're simply trying to discredit her defense of herself with an erroneous definition of personal responsibility.

    Also, how the hell did Sarah Palin become relevant enough to this thread to post about her?

    I think what she should have said is "I got fired for what I said, but I shouldn't have been fired for saying it" rather than saying she is losing her First Amendment rights. When she said he lost her rights it seems like she was just jumping up and down saying look at me look at me.

    Everyone who listens to Dr Laura knows exactly what they are in for when they listen to her. Anyone who calls in knows exactly what may happen if they call in to her show. There is zero excuse for getting butthurt over anything when it comes to listening or interacting with her media persona because it's precisely why people listen and call in.

    I, for the record, can't stand her. But I'm also not gonna complain that she's a bitch when she acted like a bitch. You don't play with a scorpion and then wonder why it stung you.

    I was not commenting on her syntax, but upon her claims about the first amendment. And whether Palin actually made the tweet is irrelevant, she is responsible for them.

    She was fired for exercising lack of judgement on the air. Owning that would be to exercise the dogma she preaches.

    I am in agreement with her loose analysis. The constant shift toward PC-ness in society is just as much a threat to our freedom of speech as the government could be. If she were writing a scholarly paper for a law journal, I would take exception to her use of the term First Amendment Rights. However, in common language, First Amendment Rights is a perfect catch all to relate, succinctly, how she feels a violation against her right to speak freely.

    As RightinNYC said...I am pretty sure most intelligent people understood she didnt mean it literally.

    That's not what you said. You made an attack on her sense of personal responsibility.

    I made an attack on her failure to exercise personal responsibility after using poor judgement. I don't actually disagree with her views on personal responsibility. I don't hate Dr. Laura. However, her behavior in this regard is not sync with what she normally preaches about personal responsibility. Hope that helps to clarify my views.

    Again, how the hell did Sarah Palin become relevant to this thread? Also, her claims about the first amendment are most likely in the same, informal vein as Dr Laura's.

    It's a ****ing tweet, not an article for the Harvard Law Review.
