Reports were out there that Air America uber-Lib Randy Rhodes was attacked. An on air personality on Air America even accused the “Right-wing hate machine” of attacking her. He assumed, like a 10-year-old, that they must be ‘getting to’ conservatives. First off, Jack-ass, no one listens to your failing, bankrupt network, and second, it would appear that the only one who assaulted her was the Irish… Pub that is.
Randi Rhodes was no more assaulted by a right-wing fanatic on Monday than Dick Cheney was. She, in fact, fell down and injured her teeth outside of a Midtown Irish bar at around 6 o'clock Sunday evening after downing about fourteen Ketel One Bloody Marys. She was abusive to the barstaff and generally gross, crass, loud, and pretentious. I genuinely hope she has a speedy recovery. I never would've disclosed this (I believe that anyone should feel free to hang out at Irish pubs at any time and not be concerned about someone publishing their behavior) if Air America hadn't grossly interpreted a drunken indiscretion and allowed it to be morphed into some bullish rhetoric on air. Whatever journalistic integrity the station may have ever had is now completely compromised. The manipulation of the public diminishes any cause, whether just or fabricated.
But yeah, go with the whole “the world is out to get us” theory… People have to give a damn about you to go after you.
Air America = disconnected losers. Not losers because they drink (I love to drink), losers because they childishly assumed she was attacked by some tough Conservatives who were out to get them. Nerds.
