LEAVE PAULA DEEN ALONE ALREADY
All I heard of while I was away was Paula Deen. Paula Deen. Did she make a mistake? Yes. She, and no one should ever use that word. Did she grow up in the south and was a product of her own early environment? Yes. Well, guess what? Sometimes somebody says the wrong thing once or twice. She knew better and stopped. All this brouhaha seems like a vendetta from someone who wanted to take her down.
Is she an angel? Probably not. Who is an angel all the time anyway?
Did she bungle her apology? Yep. She's not a crisis manager. She's a chef caught in a mess and was vulnerable because she actually did say it.
The Food Network should have suspended her show for six months. There is now such overkill from "righteous" companies. Gee....I wonder....did any of their executives use the words kike, wop, dago, gook or fag? Did any of you every hear those words in your childhoods?
This is now political correctness gone amok. It's an assassination, and not the American way.
