Dependable Erection

Dear Sarah Palin

I understand you'd like to hold an office someday for which you'd be required to raise your right hand and swear an oath to uphold the Constitution.

Perhaps you ought to familiarize yourself with it first.
"Dr.Laura:don't retreat...reload! (Steps aside bc her 1st Amend.rights ceased 2exist thx 2activists trying 2silence"isn't American,not fair"),"

Dr. Laura's First Amendment rights no more ceased to exist than did Dan Rather's or Phil Donohue's when they lost their shows. First Amendment guarantees the freedom of speech; it doesn't guarantee the right to host a radio program. Her sponsors and employers made a decision not to renew her contract. From what i've read about Randian and libertarian philosophy, the contract is the "sacred document." It's an agreement between two parties to conduct a specific business.

That agreement no longer exists. Dr. Laura remains free to spew whatever nonsense finds its way between her brain and her tongue.

It's amazing that in the same week Palin can propose denying a religious group their First Amendment rights, while conferring non-existent rights on a private celebrity.

And she wants to be president?



  • Yeah. Here's a refresher course: your First Amendment right to freedom of speech doesn't absolve you from dealing with the consequences of that speech--including being challenged, ridiculed, and held accountable for it by the listening public. Talk all you want, Dr. Laura--we're just exercising our First Amendment rights by talking back to you. And apparently, many of us are saying STFU!
