    Exactly. I think the whole nigger thing is blown way out of proportion. I wish we would just designate a day that everyone everywhere has to wear a t-shirt, pin, or something with the word "nigger" on it to desensitize people to it. Sort of like "nigger" St. Patrick's Day.

    Guys - I have to correct one major thing here.

    She was NOT fired. She's quitting at the end of the year. She produces her own and show and the only person who can "fire" her is herself.

    When sponsors started dropping, she probably realized that there's no way she could stay profitable.

    That's not the same as getting fired.

    This is a bit random, but am I the only person who physiologically has difficulty pronouncing the word "nigger"?
    I can't say it. It sounds so ridiculous coming out of my mouth that I'd probably never say it, even if I were a racist and didn't think there was anything morally wrong with saying it.
    I have the same problem saying the word "pussy" (I get around that by pronouncing it, very broadly, as "poozy", which sounds funnier than pussy anyway).
    I have a very slight speech impediment, which seems to become exacerbated beyond all reason when I try to say words which I find potentially racist/sexist/otherwise morally questionable.
    Seriously, though... I can't imagine saying the word "nigger" even once in front of another person, let alone eleven times in three minutes, before a listening audience of thousands.
    It's a stupid word. It sounds silly. Say it, right now. See?

    I had a Canadian friend once who couldn't say the word "sprout".

    Dude, if aaronssong was around for this, I don't think I could help myself but to find a way to say the "n" word 11 times in 3 posts just to watch his head explode. If he does show up, bring a mop and bucket.

    Gotta agree, jall. I loved watching him freak out over anyone who dared type the forbidden word. I had one post with it sprinkled throughout and his response was priceless. Some idiots are at least fun.

    You are not alone, and I find it refreshing that you posted this.
    Earlier today, all by myself at the computer on a thread about the N word. I said it out loud to see how it felt. It made me feel dirty. Sorry God, I didn't mean anything by it.:-)

    Disgusting!

    Anyways.. Dr. Laura is a frigid racist bitch that needs something in the inputs. Be nice if it could be a strong black man to take care of her oblivious needs. But since she has hate for lovely non-white skin? She really does not deserve anything other than a green limp dill pickle.

    Like Dr. Phil, she's not real Doctor.

    She only plays one on the radio.

    She's an ignorant twit IMO.
