Radio Host Mike Gallagher Gets It Right About Mary Winkler
Conservative nationally-syndicated radio talk show host Mike Gallagher got it right about Mary Winkler in a recent broadcast. He panned her recent performance on Oprah and criticized the legal system's slap on the wrist for Winkler. To listen to Gallagher's broadcast, click here. To learn more about the Winkler case, see my co-authored column No child custody for husband-killer Mary Winkler (World Net Daily, 9/14/07). Gallagher doesn't discuss gender issues very often, but when he does he's often right on. During the Elian Gonzalez saga in 2000, Gallagher was one of the few conservatives in the country who said plainly and clearly that Elian belonged with his father, Juan Gonzalez. During the Clara Harris trial, Mike hosted a debate between myself and one of Clara's defenders, and, unlike many, Gallagher saw through Clara's "betrayed wife" shtick.
