Dr. Laura's N-Word Rant: Join the Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

Tonight on 360°, Doctor Laura Schlessinger's n-word rant. What she said to an African American caller on her radio show about race, interracial marriage, and the N-Word over and over again. And what she is saying about it now. Plus, keeping them honest, more on the allegations of terror babies taking aim at the U.S. You'll hear from the Congressman who claims he got the information from a former FBI.

Scroll down to join the live chat during the program. It's your chance to share your thoughts on tonight's headlines. Keep in mind, you have a better chance of having your comment get past our moderators if you follow our rules.

Here are some of them:

1) Keep it short (we don't have time to read a "book")
2) Don't write in ALL CAPS (there's no need to yell)
3) Use your real name (first name only is fine)
4) No links
5) Watch your language (keep it G-rated; PG at worst - and that includes $#&*)

    No evidence and loud screaming - like the boy who cried wolf!

    OMG, I cannot believe how ridicules this congressman came across, he is obviously passionate about this threat, but he needs to get a grip and stop being so defensive, Anderson, you are filled with integrity, keep seeking the truth about this story

    Wow, great job Anderson, he presented zero facts and paid the price for it!

    Has the entire world gone mad??? I feel like I'm living in a bad issue of "The National Enquirer!"

    Louie Gohmert is crazy. I can't even fathom someone giving him the professional courtesy that Andersen provided at the "other" networks (i.e. especially Fox!). Unbelievable–his ranting was beyond over the top and caricature. It is absolutely frightening these are our leaders...absolutely stunning.

    I lol'd at how he repeated the same thing for such a long time.

    This "terrorist babies" conspiracy sounds EXACTLY like the plot of Salt

    The "terror baby" story is a joke and doesn't deserve any attention. There are many more important news stories that affect us all. Please stop wasting time on it.

    Oh wow. Gomer is having a meltdown.

    "Dr." Laura is all about in-stilling -stupid and in-sensitivity.

    Of course it would've made more sense to search for evidence and provide it before starting to spread hatred, but how many people spreading hate actually care about true facts?

    I have never heard anything so ridiculous as that Gomert talking loud and saying nothing.

    Way to hang in there Anderson, you are my hero! I would've gone off on this guy or, oops! accidentally hung up on him

    This is embarassing. The Congressman is completely changing the topic. It's very obvious that he's simply covering up the fact that his whole story was an attempt to grab attention and get some more publicity, possibly.

    I'm amazed Anderson is staying cool-headed, as right now this is just degrading into some guy trying to change up the immigration policies. Though Anderson seems to be cracking, he's getting sarcastic. This is both entertaining and irritating at the same time.

    Sounds like she got what she wanted, ratings and buzz. Anderson, she's got everyone talking about her. What a shame.

    Gosh, I think we should not waste any more time on the baby theory.

    Both Representatives can't stand up to scrutiny and they don't like being challenged–that's why both of them have now flipped out in public.

    Both fanatical lunatics.

    Ok The conclusion is, this man overheard an conversation in a plane and a former FBI agent can't be presented....

    lets keep on keeping on scaring the great unwashed gullible.

    Wow this Texas congressman makes the rest of us Texans look very stupid. We're not all that idiotic, I swear! Have a good night 🙂

    Anderson,
    God bless you for putting up with Rep. Gohmert's ranting this evening.
    Well done–you maintained your cool and you held his feet to the fire.
    Way to go.

    Terror babies sound like the result of the Birther Movement's water breaking.

    Hey Anderson,
    Cut the wire feed and drop this Rep. You've been more than fair. He is starting to agitate me!

    As an USA citizen living in a foreign country I am aware of the international airline policy that does not board non-citizens onto aircraft who are visibly pregnant. Tourist Visas are for 90 days, extendable to 180 days. It is difficult to get a baby born in the States

    I'm getting more frustrated with this Mr. Gohmert. he hasnt answered the question..moving on....

  35. Terry Mutuku, Toronto

    Wow, anderson, this is the most difficult interview you've ever had. its completely infuriating that this guys keeps on yelling and stating no evidence at all. Am glad you're keeping your cool!!

  36. Cat

    Forget it Anderson – there is no arguing with a fanatical idiot. These are the people I am scared of more so than the terrorists.

    This is Awful.... He's not making any sense, this yelling rant of his is just as bad as Dr. Laura Schlessinger.

  44. Sree Nanduru, Richmond, VA

    Anderson, have you ever had a guest like this guy? As much as my memory goes I dont remember!

    This guy however should get an award for dodging all questions!

    Because of people like this guy, the world is never going to be a peaceful place. What I am worried about are the babies born to people like him...
