She likes to chide her listeners about "shacking up" when she was recently living with a guy for seven years without being married

That was in her feminist whacko days in her 20's, not "recently". Her son is 17 or 18 years old and I believe she's been married to the dad for at least that long. She has repeatedly and vociferously criticized her own behavior of that time on her radio show; are we all disallowed from lecturing our kids on sex and drugs if we ourselves engaged in them?

And she's gone through her educational background on the air as well....anyone who cares to listen to her knows she's not a shrink. I personally wouldn't care if she was a plumber. Her insight on human nature and weaknesses, even if she can be shrill, are spot on.

Agreed. Your whole post was spot on.

As a 38 year old woman I regret I had not the opportunity to be influenced by her earlier in my life.

There's nothing worse to someone wallowing in their own filth, than when someone else decides to hose themselves off.

At least she's talking from experience.

No, I would rather be lectured by someone who has children than a person who never had any and tell you how to raise them.

Right on. I know plenty of people who would benefit from a 2 x 4 to the head. More Dr. Laura, less Oprah.
