Randi Rhodes has new radio deal

Randi Rhodes is returning to Radio. I will not listen because of the hatred of Hillary Clinton that should be boycotted. She called her a "wucking fhore."

I can't believe this kind of hate fueled garbage gets picked up all the time. She went overboard and insane with her rant that made news last year. ClearChannel should get tons of protest letters. She is not a good champion of liberal ideals. She likes to toss out horrible insults like "wucking fhore."

Here are bunch of relevent links.

By SARAH MCBRIDE Randi Rhodes, the liberal talk-radio host perhaps best known for her stint on the Air America radio network, is joining Clear Channel ...

Former Air America firebrand Randi Rhodes has signed a syndication deal with Clear Channel-owned Premiere Radio Networks, home to conservative Rush Limbaugh, a polar opposite to Rhodes. Beginning May 11, The Randi Rhodes Show will debut in the 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. ET slot, originating live from Washington, D.C. Among the affiliates that have agreed to clear the show include Clear Channel Radio's KTLK-AM in Los Angeles, KPOJ-AM in Portland, Ore. and KKGN-AM in San Francisco. Rhodes was most...

Clear Channel is trying to make liberals look bad.

Re: I am outraged

I think you and Lakrosse should get together and judge the universe and everything in it by "what's good for the Clintons?"

Over drinks.

Re: I am outraged

This is about revealing the terrible character of some people that really came out with outrageous attacks on Hillary or Bill Clinton. Whether its Randi Rhodes and her comment or Eugene Robinson with his columns or Keith Olbermann with his commentaries. A real negative character was shown for the whole world to see and that should not be forgotten.

Re: I am outraged

What's wrong with Eugene Robinson, other than the fact that he didn't back your candidate of choice?

You wrote a hatchet job on him the other day that was filled with "stretchers" as Tom Sawyer would put it.  He had the nerve to say Hillary Clinton was extremely unlikely to win.  How dare he.

I'll take one Eugene Robinson over 10 Geraldine Ferraros.

Re: I am outraged

I read Eugene Robinson's columns. He belived that there was something horribly wrong with the character of both Hillary and Bill Clinton. That led him to such assertions as Bill was a racist after his South Carolina Jesse Jackson comment and that Hillary would view the assassination of Barack Obama as the stars aligning for her after her California Robert Kennedy remark. He was just a big ball of hatred for most of the 2008 Democratic primary. What led him to think this way? Some weird personality that viewed his opponents as really evil and that's disgraceful.

Re: I am outraged

You keep claiming those things despite the fact that they're not anywhere to be found anywhere in his columns.  And now Eugene Robinson called Bill Clinton a racist?  Where?  Source it.  And if you can't and you're making it up, then it follows that his actual body of work isn't good enough for you to convince anyone - you need to spice it up with half-truths.

I'll never understand why people want to hate those they disagree with.  As an experiment I should have said that Eugene Robinson wrote that Hillary Clinton was a bad wife - you probably would have eaten it up.  Because you want to hate the guy.  It's sad.

Re: I am outraged

Robinson insinuated it all the time, always brought race into it. And if you're wondering why I tr'd you comments, you did it to me, when I was speaking about Israel. If you don't like TR abuse, don't do it yourself.

So you can't source this one either.

Honey, you have your snout so far up the Clinton

backsides, if the rest of said they broke wind, you would claim they were refreshing the earth's critical methane balance.

Get off it. First, you are making all this stuff about about Eugene, like most Puma's, you read what it says on this sites and it becomes your reality.

And, that is why, we consider you folks the Left Wing Ditto heads, though, most of your leaders are at least honest enough NOW to be open about backing Palin and the right wing agenda.

Like you, they were never real democrats, just groupies for the Clintons.

Oh God, I miss primary wars...

And here I've been, posting about all that boring torture and war crime nonsense on Dailykos.  Missing all the fun.  But I finally have a reason to post once more (first time in months) on MyDD.

So, what channel is Randi going to be on in the L.A. area?  I can't wait!

And now I drift back into the shadows again...

Re: All right!! PRIMARY WARS!

Don't forget Texasdarlin. Over at her blog today, she cites Karl rove, salutes Sarah Palin, and lauds Miss California's 'honesty'.

Her domination of discourse here was a low point.

Re: Randi Rhodes has new radio deal

You know, I really don't care about Randi Rhodes any more... but I still think David Shuster is sort of a punk.  I guess we all wind up grinding different axes.

Samantha Power... okay.  Jesse Jackson Jr... not okay.  See how it works?  YMMV!

Re: Randi Rhodes has new radio deal

Really?  I definitely wouldn't have put it the way JJ did, but self-pity isn't an attractive quality in a President.  I don't think it's race-baiting to point that out.

Let's not argue, but I think the invocation of Katrina in that context was extremely loaded.

Oh I don't disagree.  It's about as loaded as everything else was, and I don't see people howling for Andrew Cuomo's blood or whoever.

David Shuster is a GREAT reporter.

As a talking head/host, he leaves much to be desired.  There's something socially awkward about him.  

That's my most objective assessment.  I'm still a big Shuster fan, from his days reporting on Scooter.

Oh Cry me a River

First it's Robinson now it's Rhodes.

What stuns me most is that the evil empire (Clear Channel) picked her up.

Just a coincidence that two major Clinton haters were in the news this week. They both are outrageous to me.

She is available, in case you need to fill your feigned outrage calendar slot for next week.

Re: Just got off the phone with Donna Brazile

You cant compare this.  Donna Brazile has shown remorse and i heard she called the clinto's to set things right. She has made an effort to make things right.

RR and Robinson (who said i wish the clinton's would just go aways) think they deserve a pass and i dont.  Funny how Penn is the devil but Robinson and RR not so much.  Just pointing out some different standardd.

Re: Just got off the phone with Donna Brazile

Well last I checked, Robinson and RR weren't moonlighting as lobbyists for dictatorships.

But here's the important differenc: Mark Penn's JOB was to promote Hillary Clinton's candidacy.  That is not the job of Eugene Robinson or Randi Roads (sp?).  Nor is it the default yardstick by which everyone in the universe is measured.

Re: Randi Rhodes has new radio deal

The comments made by both Jackson and Rhodes had absolutely nothing substantial to add to the debate of the issues at the time and are nothing more than personal insults. I think it says more about the character of Ms.Rhodes and Mr.Jackson than anything else. I know some folks outside of New Orleans were not  pleased considering that Bill has been all over the gulf coast and Mr.Jackson had not.

Re: Randi Rhodes has new radio deal

I use to listen to Randi on a daily basis, even get her podcasts - but after she attacked Hillary and called her an f*in' whore - that's it. She's equal to Chris Matthews and Glen Beck in my book. I will not support or listen to her again. She's dead to me.

Re: Randi Rhodes has new radio deal

Never heard of her until she had verbal diarrhea. I don't listen to the radio one bit since here in San Diego it's clear channel and right wing 24/7. We don't have Air America. I prefer my own iPod anyhow. I do wonder what the outrage would have been if someone would have called Obama a dumb !@#$#! which in my eyes is the same as referring to Hillary as a fucking whore. You can be assured the outrage would have been deafening. It still irks me that all we heard was basically crickets...

Re: Randi Rhodes has new radio deal

As I recall this was during a stand-up routine.  I'm much more tolerant of what is said during stand-up than I am of a simple broadcast.

No No NO!!!

She must be punished...HOUNDED from the earth, branded as the Criminal she is...Those words must Be PUNISHED!

And, I stand by my first amendment rights to say so!

Let's be honest about this. There were things

said by both sides during primaries that were indefensible. I would never defend some of  things likes of Carville said or even few that Bill Clinton said during primaries. What Randy Rhodes said there falls in the same category of indefensible uttering. I'm sure you'd agree.

Saying that, I think some of the posters here do pop up once in a while trying to resurrect the primary wars. It would behoove us to ignore these PUMA diaries...

Re: Randi Rhodes has new radio deal

When I saw the title I was all set to horrible way her old bosses at AAR publicized a joke she made at a stand-up appearance in order to create a character-assassinating scandal just in time for contract negotiations.  

But then I took one glance at the article and realized I'd brought the wrong conspiracy theory.

AARGGH!  SET TO COMMENT ON THE HORRIBLE

On a completely unrelated note, I knew if I just didn't change my sig quote, it'd be relevant again.

Re: Randi Rhodes has new radio deal

Oh, there's always time for that conspiracy theory because it's probably true given who was running AAR at the time and the fact that under normal circumstances a grainy sideways video of someone nobody's ever heard of hardly makes news.

Anyway it was dumb: other than Al Franken, she was AAR's only real draw.

btw, did you know that nobody in the NYC labor movement can STAND Mark Green?  It's the reason he can't get elected to dog catcher here.

Re: Randi Rhodes has new radio deal

Great news - she is real fighter. Her anti Clinton remarks were in the context of Hillary stating that McCain would be a better CIC than Obama - which was not acceptable.

But Hillary has since made amends and is doing a bang up job.

But great for Randy. She is a tiger with a spine - something the anti GOP people need more of.

I just watched the video.  Instead of Zakk Wilde I think I shall be called Marshall Staxxx.
