Syndicated radio show host Laura Schlessinger's live stage show Dr. Laura Live! In Praise of Mom will be broadcast via satellite to the Azalea Square Stadium 16 on Tues. May 5 at 8 p.m. There will be an encore screening on Wed. May 6 at 8 p.m.
Schlessinger is one of Fox News' favorite conservative shills thanks to her "uplifting" and "honest" advice to stay-at-home moms. Basically she knocks you down just to prop you back up to knock you down again. That the cycle of coddling and carping never ends makes her brand of advice ever pernicious.
The show features audio and video clips about moms from their family members, as well as a question-and-answer session with the live audience at the Irvine Barclay Theatre (at the University of California's Irvine campus). If you can't see the show, read the book it's based on if you dare: In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms, a so-called tribute to moms who juggle the daily duties of motherhood.
