Karen needs to move on. Well past her prime
Just my thoughts:
I hear what you're saying, but frankly, I like that she's not perfect, and that I don't like everything about her. Living outside of Michigan for the last 15 years, seeing Karen Nueman makes me smile, just like Mickey, the Bud Lynch announcement, and the Belle Tire commercials.
She sings well, she's more Birmingham than Hollywood, she's part of the family. Just like Larry Murphy was a real guy as opposed to a polished tv personality.
