The regular reader will recall that I have no love lost for Randi Rhodes. She is a conspiracy minded wacko, that generally gets facts wrong, and even gets basic science wrong, saying that a basic element, lithium, is composed of charcoal and water.
I find out today, quite by accident (someone with the Army found my blog, searching for Randi Rhodes photos) that Randi Rhodes has been “Kicked off Air America for Foul Mouthed Tirade.”
Gee–what a surprise.
I am going to break another one of my rules, and include the report by Jim Roberts here. I only ask that you honor his warning, before going to watch the video.

It’s not easy being a shock jock, especially in the political arena. Randi Rhodes who last made news last October when she took a nasty spill outside of a bar and it was later blamed on a vast right wing conspiracy by another host on the Air America network has been kicked off the airwaves for ripping into Hillary Clinton and with some sort of a foul mouthed tirade.
She also ripped on Geraldine Ferraro as well dubbing her as “David Duke in Drag”. Rhodes went on the tirade and it was captured on video and she calls everyone that disagrees with her or supports Hillary Clinton a “Whore”. many are comparing her to Jeremiah Wright and are calling it another hate filled rant by yet another Obama supporter.***
She really ripped into Clinton dropping the F bomb and other nasty comments all the while lashing a little quasi-praise on former governor Eliot Spitzer for dropping big bucks on call girls. She even drags Angelina Jolie into the mix as well. It was a sad effort, and another embarrassment for Barack Obama.
The video is here and it contains vulgar language so be warned. Perhaps we can get Randi Rhodes and the Reverend Jeremiah Wright a joint podium and allow them to praise Obama. It is unclear how long she will be suspended for, but the Air America network did release a statement saying she is off the air and has been suspended.
After reading all this, I at times wonder if I should add a category tag for “crack pots.”
