Being a writer in the area of socio-political commentary, it goes without saying that I'm going to offend people. The snarks I post on this blog are proof of that (search for "snarks" in the Key Words on the left-hand side of the blog to see a few). I think it was Rush Limbaugh who said something like, You can't be successful until half the nation hates your guts.
That's why I've always admired Dr. Laura. Her no-nonsense in-your-face opinions - even when I disagree with them, which is seldom - are just the kind of common sense advice and commentary people need to hear. Which is why, of course, half the nation hates her guts.
Today on her blog she posted this commentary. It's well worth reading.
