Douchebags of the week: Dr. Laura and Karsten Whitson
For those of you that haven't been following the news, Dr. Laura was heavily scrutinized for using the "n" word, while on the air with a black caller. Her reasoning for using it, was that if the word is so offensive, then why to black people say it to each other? While I don't disagree with her point of view, it is incredibly stupid to say the "n" word on National radio. Don Imus said "nappy headed hoe" on the air, and was promptly fired. What did she really expect to prove by saying the "n" word? Dr. Laura is a despicable bitch, who has put her foot in her mouth several times.
She also apologized for using the "n" word, yet has decided to end her radio career, so she "can have her first amendment rights." So, you use a racial slur on air, apologize for using the slur, yet you say you want to be able to say whatever you would like in our society. When I read between the lines, Dr. Laura was just paying lip service to the public. She wasn't sorry at all for what she said, she was just sorry that she was crucified in the media. I can't speak for everyone, but I don't apologize for things i say or do, unless I am truly sorry.
Should we really be surprised that Dr. Laura pissed off another portion of the human race? I mean this is the same whore that said that homosexuality was "a biological error" and that all gay men can't raise children because they are "sexual deviants." At the end of the year, Dr. Laura will end her radio career, and will have plenty of time to write books that spew her right-wing agenda of family. She is entitled to her opinion, but I don't buy her apology. Stick to your guns, you old hag.
Mr. Whitson decided to get greedy, and now he's lost an opportunity to make millions. Keith Law of ESPN said Whitson would be lucky to see that kind of money in 2013, the next time Whitson will be eligible for the draft. See Karsten, you get greedy and you get screwed. College baseball coaches are notorious for abusing their pitchers. I went to a San Diego State vs. New Mexico game last season, and the pitcher for New Mexico was allowed to throw 160 pitches in 8 innings. Good luck with that my friend, hopefully your arm falls off by your junior year.
So congratulate our newest award-winners, I am contemplating sending our recipients a box of Summer's Eve, so if anyone could hook me up with the addresses, I would appreciate it. Enjoy your time off of radio Dr. Laura, I know I will!
