i think its kinda whack that howard didnt call ronnie out on her fake ass phd. he spent like 2 days awhile back trashing dr phil and at least he got his from a real university that i believe is accredited. he just shrugged it off and said something like, 'well i dont know about that.' and then he just moved on.

now i get it, he doesnt want to be a dick to a woman that robin is all about and he will have to deal with face to face for the next few weeks or whatever, but i just thought it was shitty.

I missed the segment today I'll catch the repeat but I've found (and I'm sure EVERYONE else has too.) that Robin and what she does is held to a different standard than everyone else. Right or wrong thats how it is.
I wish he'd tear that Ronnie a new one but she's with Robin so he won't.

I think he doesn't really want to rip her apart for any number of reasons.
a) he probably thinks she's a nice enough woman
b) she's there in person, which makes it more uncomfortable
c) she's involved with Robin, so he may not want to damage that relationship, which leads to...
d) the fact that Robin is into the wacky practices makes good radio, so he may not want to scare her off

I personally think arguing with Dr. Ronnie would be like arguing with Daniel Carver or Shirley from GHF. Not that Dr. Ronnie is as loathsome as those 2, but she is a true believer. Letting those types bury themselves in their own garbage is funnier than calling them on their shit. Arguing with true believers only gives legitimacy to their claims, IMHO. It's the reason why the Daniel Carver roast sucked. You are better off not recognizing their comments and just letting them ramble.

yeah thats something howard usually pounces on, but seeing that dr. ronnie is robins friend, we all know that he was NOT going to go there

but dr. ronnie is at least a real RN, she said tho, so maybe that counts for something.

The chick is a joke. The idea that you can change body chemistry by putting food UP YOUR BUTT if fricken retarded. Didn't south park even mock this? Robin is following stuff as idiotic as scientology at this point.

Bingo. I have a PhD from Rice University and I still hardly ever get called "doctor". This chick is from some "naturalpathic" college. *cough* bullshit, *cough* I bought a degree. If it's not an accredited college, you are NOT a doctor.

My mother's an RN, and curiously they call her "Nurse." Where Ronnie got Doctor from that, I'll never know.

+1 :bigthumbup:
That's something I hadn't thought of. I'm sure she'd clam up about her private business if he did it. Which in turn would mean missing out on some radio gold.
I'm willing to bet this is the main reason and the one I'm going to go with for now on.
