Seriously. Via ThinkProgress — hold your nose and start reading.
Today, right-wing radio host Dr. Laura Schlessinger appeared on NBC’s Today Show in a segment called “Why do men cheat?” Schlessinger argued that Gov. Eliot Spitzer (D) cheated because his wife failed to “make him feel like a man”:
When the wife does not focus in on the needs and the feelings — sexually, personally — to make him feel like a man, to make him feel like a success, to make him feel like her hero, he’s very susceptible to the charm of some other woman. […]
The cheating was his decision to repair what’s damaged and to feed himself where he’s starving. But yes, I hold women accountable for tossing out perfectly good men by not treating them with the love and kindness and respect and attention they need.
Riiiigghhtttttt. Spitzer couldn’t keep his pants zipped because his wife didn’t kiss his ass nearly enough and, therefore, starved him. Tune in next week when Dr. Laura blames rape victims for wearing make-up and short skirts like the cheap sluts they really are.
And considering this shining example of her alleged parenting skills, I’m thinking Dr. Laura should find a new line of work. What? I’m just sayin’ ...
