The Best They Can Get?

Air America talk radio host Randi Rhodes, last seen here almost a year ago when she claimed she was assaulted, before it was exposed that the culprit who knocked out her teeth was her own liver acting in self defense, is back in the news again.

Rhodes asserted Sarah Palin was a potential child molester, and sadly, no, I'm not kidding.

Rhodes is the same Air America host that recently claimed John McCain was treated well by the North Vietnamese that tortured him, and he has a lengthy history of other embarrassing rants that make liberals look like mean-spirited, ignorant fools... kinda like Obama's latest ad against McCain over email.

I'm not surprised at all that Rhodes would chose to stay in the gutter as that is very much her shtick. But is she really the among the best liberal talk radio has to offer?

The answer to the question is "yes" -

but only because it's such a SMALL roster.

You've really got to go look at the unedited transcript of the Gibson/Palin interview.

ABC is trash. Charlie Gibson should go to Candy Mountain.

Randi who?

I know this is off topic by why isn't the US News Media reporting about the Muslim Terrorist attack in India's capital yesterday?

Could it be that they are afraid that reporting on this would hurt Obama and help McCain?

Stephanie Miller is pretty good, but, she is mostly sane. Put her in the "old style liberal" category, rather then "Barking Moonbatus."

Does Randi still have a job?

Uh, no, she didn't. She wanted insurance, if available, to pay for them--nothing wrong with that.

I guess you do find the necessity for "that kind of smear."

The Boy Who Cried Wolf is watching all this and muttering, "Amateurs..."

I'm not sure, but apparently this woman's claim to fame is being a foul mouthed, drunken fool of a biatch?

Tell me ~again~ why anyone cares??

You know, I could have squinted my eyes, and maybe given Obama the benefit of the doubt when he made the claim he wasn't talking about Sarah Palin when he made is lipstick on a pig comment.

But my eyes are wide friggin' open with this attack on John McCain's inability to use a computer. It's painfully obvious that one of two things are happening here; Either his team is completely inept at looking into the recent past of their opponent for background, or, they know full well John McCain doesn't use email because he can't type, due to injuries from his 5 years in a Vietnamese hell hole.

Either one is unforgivable. The latter is despicable.

My guess is that the Obama campaign will attempt to say they weren't talking about John McCain's inability to type, that we "just aren't nuanced enough to understand what he was trying to convey".

This rookie makes me want to puke.

If I were Barack Obama, I'd get myself as far away from the Stalino-Facsist likes of Randi Rhodes as soon as I could. This jerk's origins begin in the sewers of the Gulag and extend to the sewers of "Pinch" Sulzberger's Manhattan.

Rhodes is a deranged hack.

Randi Rhodes listeners fervently agree with her - all 6 of them.

Yes. I don't know that I've ever seen or heard the woman, but from what I've read, she would look like any other toothless drunken female Mardi Gras celebrant, who, unable to get any man (or woman) to see them to safe harbor, would be seen on their knees hurling 14 Bloody Mary's from their toenails into the gutter. You know when you see it, you are viewing a shipwreck of a life. I wiped the drool off of more than one while living in The French Quarter, steering them to a cab or their hotel. Such people need a keeper, full-time.

To clarify, I read that Randi Rhodes lost some of her teeth in an incident outside a pub. Her public spin was that she had been attacked by right-wing thugs. Witnesses at the pub say that she fell flat on her face into the sidewalk all by herself after consuming 14 Ketel One Bloody Marys. Rehab and dental implants can fix part of her. Victimology, Marxism, and her hatred of America go a lot deeper, probably to her soul.

It's just a "Freudian slip" on the part of Randi.

Posted by: Neo at September 14, 2008 12:58 PM

I don't think Rhodes is an Air America Host anymore

"Last week Air America suspended Randi Rhodes for abusive, obscene language at a recent public appearance in San Francisco which was sponsored by an Air America affiliate station.

Air America Media was informed last night by Ms. Rhodes that she has chosen to terminate her employment with the company.

We wish her well and thank her for past services to Air America. We will soon announce exciting new talent and programming that will accelerate Air America’s growth in the future"

It staggers the imagination, too extreme, abusive and obscene for Air America????
