Anyone whose life becomes public property is going to have some measure of his/her hypocrisy exposed.
Only if one sets oneself up as a paragon of virtue, which Dr. Laura did, all the while making exceptions for herself regarding rules she imperiously dictated to others. Her religious conversion to Judaism was obviously shallow and made for the wrong reasons, *as will the next one be*, as she searches for something that will bring her the EGO gratification she appears to so desperately require.

Between you and I and the gatepost, Dr. Laura does come across as imperious and a bit impetuous in her on air presence. But... she runs an ADVICE talk show. Ever listen to Rush? Tom Leykis? (Gag) Larry King? All of these folks have a kill button in front of them and they give themselves the last word on everything. That's the nature of the format. Dr. Laura deals with terribly confused and befogged callers who usually need a rhetorical slap in the face. Her advice, nevertheless--and I imagine her personal life--have moved in a consistent direction--towards objectivity, God's law, and political conservatism. She's right most of the time--and that galls the licentious left. That's a good thing.
