Dr. Laura Schlessinger – who’s been enmeshed in controversy over her repeated use of the “N” word during her August 10 radio show – has got a vocal new member on her defense team: Sarah Palin.
The Alaskan has taken to Twitter to offer encouraging words to Dr. Laura, tweeting, “Dr.Laura:don't retreat...reload!”
“I want to be able to say what's on my mind and in my heart and what I think is helpful and useful, without somebody getting angry, some special interest group deciding this is a time to silence a voice of dissent and attack affiliates and attack sponsors,” Schlessinger said. “I'm sort of done with that."
And according to Palin, Schlessinger may be better off for it.
“Dr.Laura=even more powerful & effective w/out the shackles, so watch out Constitutional obstructionists,” Palin tweeted. “And b thankful 4 her voice,America!”
