Dr. Laura Exits Right
So Laura Schlessinger (Dr. Laura!) is calling it quits:
She is a conservative talk-show host whose fame is based on her looong career of giving terrible psychological advice to troubled people without actually having any kind of degree in psychology. She is famous to me as one of the misogynist women the wingnuts roll out of their pundit factory.
But being a misogynist is not at all harmful to a pundit! It's refreshing and profitable. Being found out for misogyny doesn't make a pundit quit. Isn't that fascinating?
My experiences during my Yurpian vacation suggest that this is true all over the planet, sadly.
