On his radio show today, Dennis Prager says: “The life of Lindsay Lohan does not rivet me. The collective works of Lindsay Lohan would not rivet my attention. The only reason I mention this is because of her mother. Lindsay Lohan is a troubled person and my heart goes out to any troubled person. My heart goes out to her less because she was convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol twice. I don’t have any sympathy for people convicted of DUI. Frankly, I hate you.
“It is simply a matter of roulette whether or not you maim, paralyze, brain-damage or murder another human being or yourself. I have deep anger at such people. This woman was given a light sentence after missing seven mandated court appearances. You’d think a DUI conviction would humble you, that some part of your conscience would say, wow, this is bad.
“How many people do they murder each year? Whole families are killed. In the vast majority of cases, the drunk driver is hurt less than the people the drunk driver hurts. Apparently the body that is intoxicated is far looser in its limbs and can take a crash better than a person who is not intoxicated.
“Thirteen thousand people a year are killed by drunk drivers. I want to cry. We are worried about staying in Afghanistan where all the losses over ten years are 1,000. It’s a national crisis whether we stay in Afghanistan, the home of 9/11.
“This mother has the chutzpah to cry on television that it’s unfair that her daughter… You should’ve heard the prosecutor. She was eloquent.
“Both the lawyer for Lindsay Lohan and the prosecutor are black women. The judge is a woman.
“If I were Lindsay Lohan’s parent, I’d say, I expect better from my daughter. What my child did is wrong. How many parents can say today — my child was wrong? They’re called conservatives.
“Parents who are willing to criticize their children publicly over wrongdoing are more likely to vote Republican. How do you think Lindsay Lohan’s mother votes?”
“This is so not fair to do this to my child,” a flabbergasted Dina Lohan told Popeater.
Dennis: “When I go to Popeater, you know I’ve done research.”
