Jon Stewart Thinks Sarah Palin Is a Hypocrite, Debates the Dr. Laura 'N-Word' IssueWell, this particular controversy just might never end. Once again, we return to the issue of Dr. Laura Schlessinger, and her use of the "N-word." But now, we're adding Sarah Palin to the mix.

In case you have forgotten or haven't been paying attention: Dr. Laura used the "N-word" 11 times in a row while on her radio program. After the firestorm of controversy that resulted from this, Dr. Laura quit her show. Next, Sarah Palin instantly jumped to Laura's defense, claiming that Schlessinger's First Amendment rights were violated.

Specifically, Palin said that Laura had lost her right to freedom of speech. ... Now, on 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), Jon Stewart and his correspondents jump into attack mode -- and call Sarah Palin a hypocrite.

Dr. Laura Schlessinger to Retire From Radio, 'Regain First Amendment Rights' (VIDEO)

Appearing on 'Larry King Live' (weekdays, 9PM ET on CNN) Dr. Laura Schlessinger, who had been in hot water ever since she dropped 11 n-bombs in five minutes during her radio show last week, announced she will be retiring from radio.

"The reason (for retiring) is I want to regain my First Amendment rights, she explained. "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 the time to silence a voice of dissent and attack affiliates, attack sponsors."

While Schlessinger is retiring from radio, she promises she is not retiring from offering her unadulterated opinion to an eager public.

But instead of driving around the country in the back of truck, screaming out her special brand of tough-love wisdom through a pink megaphone like we've always wished she would, Dr. Laura later mentioned to King that she will be blogging more. Boring.
