Police Deny Reports of Randi Rhodes Mugging

Tuesday, October 16, 2007 at 02:14 PM

An Air America Radio host's on-air claim that fellow host Randi Rhodes was mugged has been denied by the New York Police Department and the network. "There is absolutely no report filed," said a source at the Deputy Commissioner for Public Information office who asked not to be quoted by name. "There was no mugging."

Jon Elliott, a late-night host on the liberal radio network, told his listeners early Tuesday that Rhodes was mugged outside her Manhattan apartment Sunday night, losing several teeth in a brutal attack that knocked her off the air while she recuperates.

"It is with sadness that tonight I inform you that my Air America colleague Randi Rhodes was assaulted last night while walking her dog near her New York City home," Elliott told his listeners.

According to the police source, Manhattan police spoke to Rhodes and her attorney Tuesday in response to media reports on Watching the Watchers and other sites that quoted Elliott's claim of an attack. Both Rhodes and her attorney disputed that a mugging took place, he said.

Air America also issued a statement: "On Sunday evening, October 14, Air America host Randi Rhodes experienced an unfortunate incident hindering her from hosting her show. The reports of a presumed hate crime are unfounded. Ms. Rhodes looks forward to being back on the air on Thursday."

Rhodes has not responded to an interview request.

The Associated Press quotes Rhodes' attorney, Robert Gaudin, providing more details about the incident. Gaudin said that she's not clear on what knocked her to the pavement. "She hit her head on the street and was disoriented," Gaulin told AP. "She's not sure what happened. She didn't see anything."

Elliott claimed the alleged attack took place near the corner of 39th Street and Park Avenue. He said that Rhodes was wearing a jogging suit and had neither a purse nor jewelry, leading to his speculation that "this does not appear to me to be a standard grab the money and run mugging."

"Is this an attempt by the right wing hate machine to silence one of our own?" he asked. "Are we threatening them? Are they afraid that we're winning? Are they trying to silence intimidate us?"

Rhodes has been with Air America Radio since it launched in 2004, becoming a mainstay of the national liberal radio network. Her show airs from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern weekdays. Lionel filled in for her show Monday afternoon, but no announcement was made of the reason.

Watching the Watchers filed its first report on the Rhodes incident this morning after speaking to the public information office of the New York Police Department, which was looking into the incident and could neither confirm nor deny it took place.

She is Lucky She was not Shot.

For you out there on the right who seem to get your rocks off over stories like this, let me just say this one thing....you are PATHETIC, sick, and deserve to have Fred Thompson, Rudy Giuliani, and John McCain as your choices for president!!

What the %$#$ is WRONG with you people?? Are you that SICK in the head that just because you don't agree with someone's political views you believe that they deserve to be mugged? Are you on the right that DEMENTED??

And what REAL MEN these righties were huh?? Beating up on a WOMAN!! There's your MEN on the right, woman beating, bathroom stall sexing, little boy diddling jerks!

I very seriously doubt if this unfortuante woman was mugged by a conservative. To jump to the conclusion that she was mugged by someone on the right is bigotory of another kind. Think not?

Of all the convicted muggers you've ever read about, how many do you suppose vote conservative? Of all the conservatives you have ever known, how many advocate violence under circumstances other than self defense?

I'll be very surprised if the mugger turns out to be a conservative. It is much more likely a random act of thuggery. Let's hope the perpetrator is quickly caught. Let's pray the victim quickly recovers.

Shame on anyone who jumps to a conclusion as to who committed this crime before there is any evidence.

Why would we conservatives want to mug Randi Rhodes?

First of all, we are not animals. Second of all, why would we mug Randi Rhodes?!? She's a joke. She only appeals to you far left commie creeps. You only have to listen to her show for 5 mintes to realize that. Her soul (or as most of you God-disavowing liberals think, she has no soul) is as bankrupt as Air America. She is not worth more than 5 minutes to a conservative.

A more plausible story: she set it up herself to get some much-needed publicity.

Adolph Hitler's right wing thugs regularly "mugged" opponents and members of unpopular groups even before he came to power.
The people who support the current administration have repeatedly demonstrated their belief that they are entitled to engage in all types of reprehensible behavior to further their cause.
Given Randi Rhodes courageous outspokenness about the sinister intentions of the right wing, it is not unreasonable to suspect that this non-robbery assault is an attempt by Neo-conservative thugs to silence her views.

chrisl7412, you miserable excuse for a human being.

Because someone disagrees with your very warped views they deserve to
be hurt? Or they're lying about it?

I hope you get gang raped and no one beleves you.

oops.

sorry.

BEST wishes to Randi for a speedy recovery ...both physically and mentally...
what a brave fella that mugger must have been...violently attacking a small woman.
I hope Randy's doggie's ok too.

Given Randi Rhodes cowardly outspokenness about the sinister intentions of the left wing, it is not unreasonable to suspect that this non-robbery assault is an attempt by Neo-liberal thugs to gain publicity for her views.

first of all, can we get away from the left-- right terminology.
I am neither into being left or right, and feel it is a false political spectrum.
it is so shallow.
now, there are neo cons, and neo libs, both are frauds, and use deceit for power.
I am a supporter of Ron Paul. I am very much against this war,, based on false fakery.
study our constitution,.it really is grand, and demand your rights, and be ready to fight for them,.

There is no reason not to suspect conservatives in this setting. They're vicious, violent, and unprincipled, just like unaffiliated muggers.

One of them above wrote, "We are not animals." Well, you're sure not human, chrisl7412, not if you can still call yourself a conservative after seeing what your people really have in mind for this country (I won't say "our country" as I'm now ashamed to admit that I was born American, and technically still am one, although I've washed my hands of your nightmare psychologically, and soon, physically as well).

How many advocate violence under circumstances other than self defense? chrisl7412 and I suppose attacking Iraq was self defense? Tap your foot three times for yes and run your hand under the stall for no. The neo cons must be stopped!

With people like ann coulter, bill o-reilly, shawn hannity, rush limbaugh, michelle maulkin, and an endless list of others whose sole purpose is to give right-wingers permission to hate without conscience or accountability, it does not surprise me that the muggings have begun. To a certain type of person, hate feels good, and when it is given legitimacy, it becomes intoxicating. These pundits have been put in place by the Republican party for just this reason.

My dad was a very smart man who always told me that one picture is worth a thousand words (he knew it was a quote). In teaching me, he told me that people like these right-wing pundits have souls that look like maggot-infested corpses - you know - like the ones you always see in horror movies. (his original quote). He got his message across to me loud and clear. Much better and more effective than trying to imagine them naked!

Sound like the Duke case all over again.

Everyone "knew" that rich white boys had raped the poor black woman forced to strip so she could pay tuition.

Oooh. A white woman was attacked--round up the black boys and get a rope. Y'all should know better at this point, but the left isn't exactly a bastion of scholarly contemplation or historical wisdom.

As far as I can tell, Rhodes has not said what a happened and who attacked her, but last I checked, women in jogging suits walking their little dogs don't really need to provide a reason to be attacked.

A few things to track with the idea that "conservatives" brutalized her.

She was in Manhattan--how many conservatives do you think there are in Manhattan?

How many conservative do you think actually know who Randi Rhodes is? She may have some notoriety among the far left, but beyond that, she's pretty much anonymous. Rush Limbaugh is so threatening that 40 Senators tried to get him fired, but Rhodes?

I listened to her precisely once and then I changed the channel.

It's just interesting to me that it's people like the Kennedy's, Martin Luther King, and Ghandi are targeted in this world. Now it's Randi Rhodes. The fact that it wasn't Rush Limbaugh or Bill O'Reilly speaks volumes.

Chris,
How can a person be outspoken and a coward at the same time?
If you are outspoken on a subject does that not show that you are not cowardly?
I think you are a fool!

Have you ever noticed that when one of ours shoots one of theirs (Reagan, Ford, Wallace), it's always an amateurish lunatic like Squeaky Fromme or John Hinkley acting alone and without a plan or a mind, and that little or no blood spills,

but that when they come after one of ours (Malcolm, JFK, MLK, RFK), it is a flawlessly executed surgical strike from triangulated professional snipers who leave no witnesses or other loose ends behind, just the corpse of a formerly great liberal leader and an unwitting patsy to take the fall (Oswald, Bremer, Sirhan)?

No wonder liberalism died in the US.

Wow, now it was just an unfortunate accident and she wasn't mugged, per her lawyer and the NYPD. Hmm something is fishy. Possibly trying to drum up listeners to their show. I can't believe that Air America is still on the air. I mean, since they are clearly speaking for the American people one would think that this would have taken off.

By the way I hear some black helicopters, don't you? Bunch of freaks.

Well, looks like all you Liberal thugs and your conspiricies were wrong. Every last one of you are guilty of exactly what you have accused the Right of being. You have advocated violence and rape both on here and on other sites towards Conservatives and Conservative blooggers and talk show hosts on a regular basis, and this incident is no different. You have jumped to some wild conclusion, based on nothing more than your own hatred and vile nature, no proof or facts needed which is the Liberal MO on all cases.

It has just come out that there was no mugging what-so-ever, and all that happened was that she fell while walking her dog. She clumsily tripped and fell down. Now you have one of your radio thugs go on the air and incite hatred and violence for what?

You should all be ashamed of yourselves and do some deep self-examination to find out why you are filled with such hatred. After all, for the people who claim to be all about peace and acceptance, you are the most vile, loathesome creatures walking this country on a daily basis and each and every one of you owe all of us on the Right an apology.

Grow the Hell up.

yes, it is now an accident-apparently fell while walking her dog. maybe her dog is conservitive and tripped her on purpose....

Symbology is power. The symbology of a Trotsky being slain far away from his country or a former russian official dying in London while Putin rules is very powerful in that it says, there is nowhere you can safely speak from where I cannot do you physical harm or death.

True, one should not jump to conclusions but in this Amer-ika of today where torture is just fine and spying on Americans is acceptable and where Habeas Corpus is nothing more than paper, well than it no longer becomes unthinkable that this liar and draft dodger in the White House who has become king would do such a thing.

Leonard-

By all means please feel free to move to Canada, Mexico, Europe, etc.

Are you speaking of Bush or Clinton in the following statement:"True, one should not jump to conclusions but in this Amer-ika of today where torture is just fine and spying on Americans is acceptable and where Habeas Corpus is nothing more than paper, well than it no longer becomes unthinkable that this liar and draft dodger in the White House who has become king would do such a thing."

Excuse me, Rasmus11. Hitler was a LEFTWING socialist thug. He headed the National Socialist Party. No simalarities to American conservatives. Hitler knew that you can't build a workers paradise without busting some heads. What are the odds of being mugged by a Republican anyway? The vast majority of criminals, violent or otherwise, indentify with Democrats. Thus the push by Democrats to allow more of them to vote. You wear your hate on your sleeve and it oozes from your writing. Can't we wait to find out who the mugger is, or might be, before we start spitting on people.

Wow....I thought I knew just how unhinged the foaming at the mouth lefty BDS suffers were, but I had no idea it was this bad. Their "heroine" stumbles and falls on her face, probably in a drunken stupor, and the looney lefties are calling for the rounding up of the usual suspects. What a bunch on lame-o Duke rape case prosecutor wanna-be's. Grow the F up, morons.

well, well, well, have all you looney libs wiped the dog crap off your shoes yet? You sure stepped in it this time. Where are all of you at now???

I know you are not working, so maybe over at algore's blog figuring out how to save another sheet of toilet paper.

well done, you have shown once again why you and your kind should never be trusted with anything important.

Why in fact did any story appear that Randi Rhodes was mugged in the 1st place when her lawyer now denies she was mugged? Lies to attack the Right Wing?

It wasn't a fall, I'll bet the police are checking her partner's hands for teeth marks. What a joke of a story "I was walking my dog and don't know what happened." My kid can think of better B$ than that.

Well Neddle Nose, don't you feel like the village idiot today after such ridiculous remarks? Do you really think the conservative right would waste such time on people that don't share the same views? Get a life!

People need to calm down. According to the NY Daily News, neither Randi Rhodes, her lawyers or the NY police are claiming she was the victim of a crime. Her lawyer says she suffered serious injuries from an accidental fall while walking her dog.

WOW!

The vitriol of the loony left knows no bounds!

One of their talentless talkers falls on her face and they start with the conspiracy theories and bashing the right wing! ROTFLOL

The only one more ridiculous and dishonest than Randi Rhodes herself is Jon Elliot....and that is saying quite a bit!!!!

It is SO funny to watch the loony left self-destruct!

OK, now kids. It is time to go to your movetofrance.org meeting and get your NEW marching orders! ROTFLOL

CVH THEY WERE all Ours. Americans. Thats why you are a Deluded Divisive Liberal.

But to answer your question. Liberals tend to view things as Conspiracies. There is no Evidence of ANY Conspiracy in any of those attacks.

Whats next? Stealing the FBI Files of 900 Political Opponents like Clinton did?

To the lying leftist two-bit piece of human excrement who started the rumor:
Congratulations. You got your 15 minutes of fame, errr.... errr... who are you?

Wow...not a word from all the Libs. You all were so quick to jump out there before, yet oh so silent, except for the one guy who can;t apologize, but still finds a way to blame someone else for his pure hatred and prejudices. Way to go Leonard...way to accept responsibility for your own actions and thoughts and deeds. For someone who served, you would think you would know better and accept responsibility.

I should know better than to ever hope for the Liberals to admit when they are wrong, accept their short comings, apologize with sincerity and learn from their mistakes. They never apologize for anything, and are only looking for the next conspiricy to glom onto.

Horrible people, all of them.

Leonard Clark,

First of all, THANK YOU for your service!!!
(That is assuming you did serve and not just make it up like MacBeth and so many other "heroes" of the left who lied about ever being in Iraq. What was it?.....MacBeth (whose real name is AlZaid or some such thing) was out of BASIC TRAINING after 42 DAYS?!?!?! ROTFLOL)

But since you are posting on here, I would want some proof that you even served!

Now to your "spying on Americans" charge.....

you mean like Hillary Clinton SPYING on political opponents and ILLEGALLY taping their cell-phone conversations?!?!?!?!? You mean THAT spying?

Read the news TODAY, Leonard. And then look in the mirror! ;-)

Now, now, now. The Left has always apologized for being wrong. Let's see, there was the apology for supporting Stalin in Russia. Oh wait, they never did apologize for that, in fact they gave a Pulitzer to Duranty at the NY Times for reporting that it was a workers paradise, and 25 million people didn't really die. Ooops. But there was the apology for Cut and Run in southeast Asia, and the resulting death of 2.5 million in the killing fields and reeducation camps...Oops wrong again. I guess we can probably stop holding our breath for an apology on this one too......

John Elliot is a talented broadcaster but he comes off looking like a hysterical ass on this Randi Rhodes thing. Speaking on the radio carries a certain level of responsibility to get your facts straight before making wild unfounded accusations. Elliot's credibility takes a major hit. Listeners will never know if his words are factual or emotional flights of fancy.

Wow, you guys are really paranoid. Just because someone disagrees with you does not mean they are evil, violent, and looking to attack you. The thought that some conservative physically attacked some unknown liberal pundit is absurd, yet you all jumped to believe it without ANY evidence whatsoever.

You all need to do some serious self examination, and see who the real hate-mongers are. The people on the right typically complain that the people on the left are wrong, and when the right gets "vicious" they say the left is stupid, moronic, etc. The people on the left, on the other hand, claim that the right is EVIL, and that we WANT to harm America and Americans, destroy the Constitution, hurt poor people etc. Why don't you stick to the ideas and who's right and wrong, and leave the moral judgments about who's "evil" to the terrorists?

I find this wild eyed accusation to be hilarious. You can't imagine how hard I'm laughing at the Air America crowd trumping up a supposed mugging by a Nazi conservative only to find out there was no mugging at all. But of course you guys won't take the word of Rhodes at all. You'll get it in your head that she was mis-quoted by the corporate owned media and that she really was mugged by a hate filled right winger. It's about as sensible as the rest of the crap you believe. Why not believe the media is covering up the truth? They did about 9-11 after all.

Wack on wackos before Hitler comes back from the grave to steal your non-existant soul. Wow man look at all the colors and the trails. Oops! Sorry. I got off on the wrong tangent there. I was just trying to make you trippers feel safe so you won't freak out when you finally realize what idiots you look like.

First of all, she wasn't mugged, she fell walking her dog. Second, if she were mugged why do you idiot's assume it was by a man.

Who are you trying to kid? They'll never figure out they look like idiots. They listen to Air America. They obviously have no clue that they look like idiots.

Ha Ha.

She fell on her own face.

The Conspiracy you lust for will have to wait for another day...

Remember, 9/11 was an inside job too....

Dummies.

Wild exaggerated propaganda about a vicious brutal violent attack on Randi Rhodes carries the disturbing stench of a 21st Century version of the Reichstag fire of 1933.

LOL.

I guess the libs have nothing left to say.

Hey Libs,

The conservative people I know have jobs/familys/pay taxes (more than their share), we really do not have the time to go out and mug people. Beside, before this article, it appears none of us even knew who Rhodes was. What is that telling you? Obviously she is of no importance, so she cannot be a threat.

Beside, this happened on a Saturday...Conservatives only mug on Wednesdays :] . Smile, life is short!!!

I don't blame Randi for falling down. Hell, it's amazing more liberals don't faint after seeing Air America's ratings. The sight of conservative talk radio constantly bitch slapping liberal traitor talk radio is delicious, and quite pass-out worthy!

I hope she recovers soon. Air America needs her to raise more $$$ by stealing from the mouths of poor minority kids! ROFLMAO!

Who knew Air America was still on the air? This is great advertising for black gospel music. After all, I went to 1190AM to hear why Rhodes had gotten mugged and it was a black gospel station.

Anyway, this is sooooo rich, this whole story. You idiots can't even get a simple story right when it actually happens to you. Your host goes on the air and starts ruminating about a vast right-wing conspiracy against some radio host who no one listens to, and it turns out she stumbled and fell while walking her dog. She doesn't even remember how it happened, according to the Daily News account.

But you idiots knee-jerkingly ascribe it to a conservative somehow sneaking into Carolyn Maloney's 90%-voting-Democrat-district, avoiding all the Big Brother street cameras in tony Murray Hill, beating the poor woman to a pulp, and then fleeing back to disease-ridden-need-to-be-immunized NASCAR country.

"What? She fell? Oh, I really thought a conservative was capable of committing a violent assault on a liberal this time. You know, the way the Democrats always fight so hard to legalize the felon-in-prison vote and everything."

But whatever you do, don't try to analyze WHY she can't remember why she fell. After all, it's enough that the lie was shot down right away, rather than festering for a year or so, like in Tawana Brawley, and Duke lacrosse, and Hillary's "right-wing conspiracy" being behind the Monica Lewinsky accusation, etc. Now the alternative media on talk radio and the internet are able to expose the lies in near-real time, like the lie about Bill O'Reilly at Sylvia's, and Rush Limbaugh's comment about Jesse Al-Zaid, "phony soldier". And now the phony story put out by Jon Elliot that Rhodes had been mugged by a conservative.

But again, it's great advertising. Not as good as the wall to wall coverage the Drive By Media gave Err America when it first launched, but every little bit helps. That is if anyone knew where to find you on the radio dial. But I did like the gospel music. Maybe I'll tune that in again, some day when it's a slow news day.

It's Drudge's fault!!! If he hadn't posted it nobody would have ever known about it...

Bet he was that little punk in high school that went around saying, "Did you hear what (insert name here) said about (insert name here)...?" just to get everything all riled up. And y'all thought the National Enquirer was bad about making stuff up...

ROTFLMAO as Drudge no doubt is!!!!!!!

FUNNY, FUNNY, FUNNY, FUNNY!!!!

I can cut Air America's listening audience in half, all by myself. All I have to do is turn off my radio.

I say she had to take a few days off to recover from an all nighter of rough sex with Rush Limbaugh. She can't hang like Ann Coulter.

It's not hard to see, from an outside perspective, the real facts that this unfortunate accident brought forth. Both sides: Rush, Randi, Thom Hartman, O'Reilly, Hanity, etc., all both sides do is scream hatred at each other. No reasoning, no discussion, and that's all I've seen in any of these comments. Next time something like this occurs, how about everyone waits for information from those involved instead of championing their faviorite hate monger (be it Rush or Randi).

For years, instead of attacking someone for no other reason than they have different views than myself, I've gone out of my way to talk to people about their views. Guess what? People are not stupid, and everyone I've talked to has a reason for feeling they way the way they feel on a topic. I may not agree with it, but I understand why they feel the way they do. Grow up, and stop listening to the hate spewers...try reading, it's amazing how a little news that isn't yelled at you or scared into you allows you to make up your own mind.

Sounds like Air America is denying it too...

"The reports of a presumed hate crime are unfounded," the statement read by a receptionist at the network's New York offices said. "Ms. Rhodes is looking forward to being back on the air on Thursday."

The real desperation is heard in the voices of many liberals. Mugged? Almost as silly as Rush being anti-troops...

It also seems like people have such resentment towards Drudge because he links to the stories that most liberals count on not making it out to the mainstream. Let's face it, its just a page with links to news clips of the day- many on liberal slanted agencies. Sometimes I wonder if there's a bad batch of tofu out there that people are eating...DELUSIONS....

Air what? I thought that station went out of business when John Kerry lost the election.

Just released by Reuters!!!...Air America now claims that they have uncovered the truth! Randi's dog is a NEOCON! He intentionially left a pile of dog doo on the sidewalk. As Randi bent over to pick up the Liberal pile, the NEOCON dog intentionally jerked on the leash causing the intellectually drunken Rhodes to do a face plant into the feces! She woke up 30 minutes later with two missing teeth and dog squeeze rammed up her nostrils.
George Bush is behind it all!

Boy, somebody must have left the screen door open. The place is lousy with conservative vermin today!

Personally, I'm OK with that. Sure, a lot of good people are going down, too. But there must be 150 million of you lice in this miserable country, so it won't be a total loss.

Oh, and watch out behind you. You could get your face bloodied and a few teeth knocked out as well. If not in your neighborhood, then in Gitmo.

Really, that's the only good thing about America going fascist - people like you being "interrogated".

Bush did a good job dividing the country ("Ah'm a uniterer, not a division."). Now comes the conquering.

See ya, wouldn't wanna be ya.

This is sad and also funny yet another airhead can barely walk without wearing a helment...

Hey, Left Wing Nuts, since you reflexively need a conspiracy theory to explain life (that is why you're called "knee jerk"), try this one on for size. How about if Randi Rhodes actually WAS mugged, but she can't admit it for fear of losing her radio show?

You know the old adage, a conservative is a liberal who got mugged.

What a bunch of paranoid nuts. A mediocre talk show trips and it turns into a case of mugging by evil right wing Rush Dittoheads.

Really adds weight to the wide held believe that fringe liberalism is really just another treatable mental illness ... ..

I honestly never heard of this liar Randi until I read this story on Drudge. I don't listen to her show because I am not feeding at the Federal Trough, instead I work for a living. I guess her 25-26 listeners are "between jobs". What a joke.

No wonder the only people that listen to this garbage are paranoid intellectually depraved tools.

johnmupo,

You must feel like a real cool dude right about now.

Think you owe a few apologies out there, that is if you even check back after finding out the truth.

She fell down and went BOOM and somehow Air America (which was an illegal CIA airline BTW - gotta love that irony) spins it into a mugging that was probably done by right wingers out to silence her.

Why silence someone who reaches so few people?

I guess "VISITOR" has nothing better to do than sit and add his/her inane comments twenty eight (28!) times in less than three and a half (3 1/2) hours. Visitor claims to have a job, maybe it's as a court jester, or some other sort of buffonery. "Right" on "VISITOR"!

Ever heard of 'Liberalism is a Mental Disorder', the best-selling book by the brilliant Michael Savage? Randi proves it.

I love reading the comments from the bitter, whiny, paranoid, lefty losers out there. What a bunch of histrionic, self-serving, pathetic hypocrites. These sad hysterical children love to hear themselves spout about how morally superior they are since they preach open-mindedness and tolerance, and yet when it comes to people they disagree with, they generalize, stereotype and act like Stalinist morons. Eww, I'm so scared! I'm being victimized! Before you bray about the Right preaching intolerance and hate about Islamists, why don't you liberal idiots listen to the constant wailing about why you hate the Right. No wonder nobody listens to Air AMerica. Who the hell wants to hear a bunch of spoiled "victims" constantly cry on the radio. I love how they wail about their "civil rights" and "free speech" but they have no problem trying to shut down conservative media. Immature hypocrites. Useless children, why don't you leave the US and move somewhere where they will provide all those Socialist hand-outs you seem to need.

Ahh, just one question, who is Randi Rhodes?
Never heard of her.

Suck it up commie, the truth will set you free

She is such aattractive toothless girl also

In the new media age nobody really knows how much influence anybody has. Neilson ratings, Radio ratings and the like are really just guesses as to wot feeds the zeitgeist. Spud thinks that Randi Rhodes impact is more profound than most of the RT's would like to believe. If you can get over her New Yawk accent and stop staring at her enormous sweater puppies fer a bit she's actually a really decent, well informed, funny and patriotic talking head which, of course, puts her miles and days ahead of the pack of corporately corrupted declawed lap-dogs that seem to comprise the MSM these days.

Since we don't really know wot happened here the speculation as usual tells us more about the folks blogging on topic than it does about the incident at hand.

Very telling in fact.

Spud's heard speculation from the left that this was an assault from some mouth breathing Righty Tighty upset with Randi's politics and from the right the theories have mostly had to do with the color of the skin of her assailant. Racism, sexism, political opposition, robbery, stalking, or a good old fashioned NYC mugging are all up as theories on this.

Prersonally, Spud is gonna wait to hear wot Randi sez about it all afore offering some half-baked theory on the subject.

Spud's funny like that.

Be Well.

OMG! Another brilliant comment by a Liberal idiot! Complaining about the person signed on as Visitor, too stupid to understand that Visitor is anyone that doesnt have a profile...the best part? Yes, they also were signed on as "Visitor"!!! If you tools werent so pathetically hilarios you would be scary!

Visitor from another Planet 3:33 sed...

...why don't you leave the US and move somewhere where they will provide all those Socialist hand-outs you seem to need.

Wow. Sometimes Spud just has to step back and take in how bloody effective the whole propagandising and dumbing down of America has been with some folk and shake his wee head.

Still swinging at the ghosts of the Evil Empire.

How pathetic is that?

It would be a lot funnier if the place wasn't being run by a whack of morally bankrupted war criminals, of course.

Be Well.

I'm a registered republican who votes independent. I tend to think that liberal minded people tend to let fear drive their political existence and also love to jump to conclusions.

Just like Randi's unfortunate accident, liberals tend to get their facts wrong. Look how your talk show hosts treat republicans! We republicans are as much American as you are.

And by the way, if Al Gore were to enter the presidential race, I'd vote for him in a heart beat.

Too all of you "loser" righties (especially this tool "visitor") who obviously have serious mental issues from, I don't know, your frequent visits to airport bathrooms, let me explain a few things to you.

Number 1, YOU ARE NOW THE MINORITY PARTY!! American's have grown tired of you idiots! They have grown tired of people like Druggie Limbaugh, slag Coulter, and that jer4k-o-ff Sean Hannity! Conservative talk radio rating numbers have BEEN TANKING for the better part of a year now! Nobody (except gay in-the-closet Christian priests) like you guys anymore!

Liberals care more about REAL issues, like why our great monkey-faced President would deny millions of poor children healthcare. We don't care about stupid things like this! You mental patients, however, care about one thing and one thing only....YOURSELVES. You could give a da-mn about childrens healthcare, you only care about WHAT IT WILL COST YOU.

You are SCUM, and the people of this country are realizing more and more every day that you are SCUM.

Check the polls....the American public relates more, and cares more about issues that DEMOCRATS support. People don't LIKE your kind. They don't like Fatty Limbaugh, they HATE Ann Coulter..and they can't stand hypocrates like Larry Craig!

Your party is DONE...DEAL with it! Enjoy being in the 25 percentile of the country! Enjoy being unpopular.

...the brilliant Michael Savage?

The Pathetic Mikey Weiner ya mean?

Be Well.

To "Dethspud"...

Liberals get their facts wrong??? Are you being serious?

Like before the war? How many "facts" did Liberals get wrong then? maybe if we were'nt LIED to constantly we wouldnt get our "facts" wrong.

Name a Democrat who got the majority of the Vote?

For those Dems = over 50%

"Hilarios".....moron...

Come on answer the question it wont hurt

Rhandi Rhodes is a waste of a human being. She fell down in a drunken stupor and the radical nazis on the left were so sure it was a HUGE conspiracy by the normals on the Right.

What a wack job she is. I am one of the few people that listens to her show (very seldom though) and she is insane. She thinks everything is a conspiracy by the Right.

I used to be a democrat until I opened my eyes and saw how corrupt they are and evil their intentions are. The leftists suck.

Coultersatroll, you've proven my point.

Your a weak minded individual and wouldn't have the balls to say what you've written above face to face. Nor would you ever, even in time of need, serve your country.

Coultersatroll

Are you single?

He must be. He's got 60 years of anger welled up inside him.

Must be however I thought it was single gal or single mother very bitter person

Here's what you far leftwing radical extremists need to remember: you are inconsequential. No one is intimidated by you. No conservative would find it necessary to "rub out" one of your favorite lefties because you are POWERLESS!!!

There was a time when you lefties controlled the legacy media. With the advent of the new media, internet, talk radio, you no longer have the monopoly you had in the past. You never again will have that monopoly and, here's the best part, there's ABSOLUTELY NOTHING you can do about it.

In the marketplace of ideas, your perverted proposals will go NOWHERE!!! And there's ABSOLUTELY NOTHING you can do about that either. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To Coultersatroll,

First off all you're quite popular.

It never fails, if you liberal democrats can't complain about a conservative mugging a talk show host, then move on to some other rant. That does seem to be the constant.

And don't be so hateful, it doesn't help prove your point.....it makes you appear scorned and nutty.

One last thing the capital letters don't help much, it just looks like you pounding on your keyboard.

Peace

Hey Coultersatroll,
Anyone that doesnt have a profile is listed as "Visitor"
G**D*** you are stupid.
But I wouldnt expect anything less.

Coultersatroll,
May I recommend that you read a book once in a while? You may want to start with Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged"....but I have to warn you it's pretty long and doesn't have any pictures.

"Well, you're sure not human, chrisl7412, not if you can still call yourself a conservative after seeing what your people really have in mind for this country (I won't say "our country" as I'm now ashamed to admit that I was born American, and technically still am one, although I've washed my hands of your nightmare psychologically, and soon, physically as well)."

Bob, if by "washing your hands of your nightmare physically" you mean that you soon plan to move from the US, then please - don't let the screen door hit you on the way out. That being said, I have to say that lefties like you rushing to judgement absent facts is nothing unusual - we saw it during the 2004 election when the lefties practically soiled themselves with glee over what were OBVIOUS document forgeries about Bush's guard service; they went into a demented tizzy over the debunked Farrakhan claims that "bombs" planted by the Bush administration blew up the levees in New Orleans during Katrina, and breathlessly followed the recent bogus story attempting to smear Rush by inventing meaning never intended by his words. What can one conclude other than liberals are gentically predisposed to believe just about ANYTHING, absent facts or confirmation, so long as it is reported in such a way as to be critical of conservatives.

And in this respect, Bob, I agree with you - like you, I'm ashamed...ashamed that the residents of the blue states in this country I love so much are so mind-numbingly STUPID as to believe everything they hear without question, so long as it's critical of an ideology they oppose.

Cheers,
Dave

Seriously, what is wrong with you people? Do you honestly just believe everything you hear as soon as you hear it? Especially on late night radio?

This is exactly the reason that our political discourse has been so lowered, all any of you can do is lob ad hominem attacks at people you've never met.

Ms. Rhodes never claimed that she was mugged, some late night mic jockey made an ill advised statement. And look at you, you are all lathered up into a rage over this conspiracy or that conspiracy, this is just pathetic.

I hope that Ms. Rhodes and her dog are alright.

I hate to say this, but if she was attacked, in a way she brought it on herself, GOING OUT AT NIGHT IN NEW YORK (remember 'wilding' anyone?). #2, it appears, from the article, that SHE WAS NOT ATTACKED, so all this left-right silliness is pointless. What the issue here should be is the issue that plagues both conservatives and liberals: Clumsiness in public. Gerald Ford was a victim, Bob Dole was a victim, now Randi Rhodes. SOMETHING MUST BE DONE! Bag the resolution against Turkey, never mind the SCHIP veto! Clumsiness has to come first. Let's get a blue ribbon panel together to address this problem to save the average and celebrity American from his or her own stupidity! There oughta be a law! SOMETHING MUST BE DONE BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE! Call your Congressman, Senator, Presidential Nominee! Government has to fix the problem before anymore teeth are lost! Call and Email NOW!!!!!

That Poor dog is all she has

wow, so much anger over a false report.

From the Texas Visitor:

It's totally hilarious to see the libs spew their hatred. They walk around all day long with a scowl mad at the world; so full of hate that they may implode. Panties in a wad shoved up their rectum. Really makes my day!

Maybe we can have a new Hate Crime law

That for Drunk, divorced single gals

Well, if she indeed "tripped" it is no doubt because of dubya's FAILURE to maintain our infrastructure. Bush might as well just stuck his foot out in front of her.

Hilarious....and you want to run my country!

This is really amusing. The liberal blogosphere continues to reach new lows in its inability to draw in outsiders, to inspire, to use proper English, and to remain civil. In fact, you are such an echo chamber that you actually imagine that conservatives know, let alone care about, Randi Rhodes. Here is one Ph.D. who has listened to talk radio for thirty years, reads blogs daily, and subscribes to the Wall Street Journal, yet until today when he saw this story posted on the Drudge Report, had never heard the name Randi Rhodes.

Stupid liberals. I heard her dog was humping her leg and that is how she fell. Anyone want to blame the GOP for that too? I heard Global Warming was also at fault. The glaciers melted and the wate collected on the sidewalk and she slipped on it and there was a hurricane with cat. 5 winds and that blew off the sidewalk where there was this white guy who worked for the oil companies that kicked her in the teeth. Someone stop the madness!!!!

Bush stuck his foot out and Cheney probably pushed!

Liberals smell bad. They are physically and intellectually unattractive people who have nothing but negative comments..what makes a liberal happy? America's demise. That is the only thing that makes them smile...oh that and drugs.

Iam suprised you RIGHT WING WAC JOBS know about Air America and Randi Rhodes. That's cool, maybe something good has come out of this. I found out that she is making an impact out there with you misguided folks(Nazis). you're getting all Wrapped around the axle over her and that suits me just fine. She speaks the Truth about you people who can't handle the sad truth you're turning this country into a totalitarian, unitary executive, cronyistic, corrupt, twisted, violent, corporate brown nosing state that's destroying the commons of this great country and the world. I use to be a republican thinking they were responsible (fiscally and otherwise), but come to find out they've turned into religeous extremists who think they're the supreme authority on goodness, waiting for armageddon and getting all you can until it's over......I'll say I'm sorry about someone jumping the gun on the mugging but it wouldn't surprise me a bit if one of the gun up his hole Nazis got excited and did something to her ... .

Just like a lib. Draw, shoot, aim, miss, blame someone else when they blow their foot off

Hey Robert M. The only reason I know about her is that some A$$ on air america claimed that Bush tried to have her whacked. Of course I found it funny that you believed it. Is that our fault too?

what is all the cause of this liberal venom ?, certain inadequate feelings creeping in???

It always amuses me when you Orwell-speak "progressives" accuse conservatives of being members of the National SOCIALIST German WORKERS Party.

Hic... I doun no whay she fell dowhn an cant rememembor dooing so. Hic. Now wha wood maak her forgit such a imporant ting huh? Hic. I jus dohn no...

One more thing...who is turning this country into a totalitarian state? I do not see conservatives saying that we cannot use the word God in school. I do not see conservatives trying to tear down a war memorial because there is a cross on it. I do not see conservatives praising the likes of Hugo Chavez as he removes opposition from his country and blasts the United States. That my communist friend is all found on the extreme left....that is you. Enjoy.

"Here is one Ph.D. who has listened to talk radio for thirty years, reads blogs daily, and subscribes to the Wall Street Journal, yet until today when he saw this story posted on the Drudge Report, had never heard the name Randi Rhodes."

You don't think that is in any part due to the POV of the media outlets you choose? I suspect you have been listening to the wrong talk radio, reading the wrong blogs, and subscribing to the wrong newspapers.

I honestly thought she was a porn star.....isn't there one named Randi Rhodes....if not it would make a great hooker/pornstar name.

Actually, I thought Randi Rhodes was the lead guitarist for Ozzy that died in that tragic helicopter accident back in the 80s.

I agree. Randy Rhodes was one of the greatest rock guitarists of all time!

Oh... different Rhodes? My bad.

Libs... lol

The only approval rating lower than the President's is that of the liberal controlled Congress. Way to shine libs!

Its ok though. Hillary has all the answers and all the hand outs you'll ever need. Don't worry. You wont have to get jobs or take care of your own families. Hill has you covered! USA! USA! USA!

Hey, anybody seen Sandy Berger? I can't find my documents. :(

You are a bunch of sick freaks! I have never read such hatred spew from the mouths of so many. Republicans are bad liberals are saints?
What a load of crap. You should open your eyes and read the crap that you have written. This is total stupity. George Bush made himself king? Who are all the people running for President? If GWB were king no one would be allowed to run, you are pack of derange fools! Get a life and get off the internet for awhile.

Wallace was one of the most outspoken Democrats in favor of racial segregation. That's one to be proud of!

Oswald (communist), Sirhan(Palestinian) I'm not sure they were Republicans.

Easy visitor. It is the MO of the liberal weenie. True dems like Joe Lieberman are not like that.

How can Randi Rhodes ever hope to enlighten us about the intricacies, complexities, labyrinth maze of political intrigue and corruption in our federal government? Unraveling the truth about her own simple "accident" is proving to be more difficult than mapping the human genome.

Robertm,

She only made an impact by making up a story, is that how it works?

And I don't think this country is changing as dramatically as your and the better part of the world's expectations have changed.

The US does more for the rest of this modern world than any other country and gets very little credit. Lately it seems a right for other nations to depend on and dictate to the US, is that how it works?

I'm proud to be an American above a Republican or Democrat!

TR

Gee, looks like I've stumbled across an elementary school playground or something here. Such brave and even-handed comments here. "Liberals smell bad" and "little boy diddling jerks", huh? Those of you on both extreme sides on this topic should be ashamed of yourselves. Casting stones gets you nowhere. Come on.

As if right-leaning folks have never gotten themselves bunched up in a tizzy over off-the-wall conspiracy theories ("Clinton had Vince Foster KILLED!") and those on the left freaking out about the same, like WTC as a Bush aministration sanctioned inside job, for instance. Each of you pretend to be above making such knee-jerk assertions. Calm down. Take a breath. Try to employ some reason and perspective.

If what happened to Ms. Rhodes is of such importance to both extremes of the political spectrum, then wouldn't it be reasonable to wait and see what official word results from this instead of wasting valuable time and energy speculating and spewing vitriolic comments? Does every event have to result in one side versus the other, "I can insult better than you" political free-for-all?

I'm waiting for doses of calm and rational thought. I hope it isn't too long of a wait.

Elijah Muhammed took care of Malcolm. Evidently he did not like sharing power. BTW that is just a hypothesis but I am pretty sure he wasn't a republican.

Wow!! Now reports are coming out that she was never mugged, but fell on her face. See how you left wingers are...everything is a conspiracy by the right. No wonder people are leary of you conspiracy minded, hate mongers...

Hey Super Jesus...just having fun at the expense of super liberals.

Super Jesus,

Don't you get the point of blogs? A chance to vent and or comment.

Stop policing the internet, you have more important things to save.

SuperJesus is my homeboy.

The traffic in this town is getting really bad. I'm riding to work on a vanpool and what do I see but a F-450 crue cab dually with dual Bush Cheney stickers on it and 1 person in it probably commuting to his desk job. I said to myself, there's the quintessential neo con there, all he cares about is himself. To him, it's perfectly ok for our good men and women to be over there dying for his diesel. He's bought into the party line that there's no need to sacrifice at a time of war. all you need to do is go out there and shop. I'll hand it to him that he did buy american but that's about it.

Yes and Al traveling on his personal Jet all over the place with a carbon foot print the size of Hillary's fat ass is doing a lot of good too. Shame on them both.

Poor Superjesus. You assume that people are willing to be rational.

It's a helluva lot easier to go with the tide. Reason has no place in blogs.

Robertm,

We are proud of you, keep up the fair reporting, did you ask what he was doing or just assumed!

TR

Speaking of the Left's need to attribute all attacks upon their icons as "conspiracies":
JFK was assassinated by a communist sympathizer who had trained in Cuba and married a Soviet, RFK was assassinated by a Palestinian dhimmi, MLK was assassinated by a registered Democrat, and Malcolm X was assassinated by a Black Muslim.

And now Randi Rhodes beat up herself.

As another poster wrote, Air Heads really shouldn't walk around without their helmets on. But maybe now she can sue the city for its conspiracy of mixing concrete into its sidewalks and asphalt into its streets?

Or maybe her dog is a Dittohead sleeper agent that purposefully tripped her and her amnesia is a result of a concussion, rather than being drunk?

Well Said EagleINNYC

At least their both somewhat patriots and love their country and want to make it better and safer. the right doesn't want to make it safer and hasn't. It doesn't contribute to the GNP if things go well and boy is the GNP pumped up! And, you said you liked Hillary's fat ass or she should be ashamed of it?

And what I see is a hard working American who uses his truck FOR work (hauling furniture, hauling equipment to a work site, etc.)
Why do you loathe Blue-Collar working men in Pickups?

We all saw how safe we were under Clinton. 4 terrorist attacks. Trade Center 1, USS Cole, Oklahoma City, the embassies in Africa. I am sure I am missing some in there.

The hard working american should vote Democrat if he wants to keep his union job. Or maybe we can go with Bush's strategy of lowering the value of the dollar until it looks good to foreigners to buy American products.

Randi is about as genuine as Bill Clinton's marriage vows.

Yes there is another institution that has outlived its purpose. Unions are killing the American Worker. Ask the food workers here in Southern California what a great job their union did for them. Only is Southern California can you bag groceries for $18.00/hr and get full health care. People wonder why everything is so expensive. You can pretty much point to any union and figure it out.

BTW RobertM change the subject again when it is pointed out how ridiculous your views are. It is hilarious watching you bounce from topic to topic once you get thumped.

Randi got beat up by a patriot? What do you expect when a traitor bashes the troops, bashes the country, bashes her own way of life, bashes our flag, bashes normal sex, bashes babies in a mother's womb, bashes our president during wartime?

Well, pardon me all over the place, "visitor". Your heart is full. As you were...

Super Jesus...I am sorry. I should not have said that liberals smell. That was wrong. Feminists.....a way for unattractive females with no marketable job or social skills to interject themselves into American culture. By the way...Randi Rhodes does ROCK......hell of an guitarist.

just between you and me, the smart money says "it's the drugs!"

who knows if she's genuine but she speaks the truth and the righties don't like the truth like all the money that is unaccounted for in the war, Last time I heard it was 10 billion. Or how embarrassing our president is whenever he opens his pie hole("major operations in iraq have ended" or "Bring it on" or......).

sorry....hell of A guitarist.

RobertM - what would you use the 10bil for?

how about American infrastructure which creates jobs, serves a need and is constructive. Don't tell me where it actually did go because I'm sure even the cons would be blown away by that answer.

I am enjoying this train wreck, along with another one,
www.topix.net

en.wikipedia.org

Whenever I wonder how Bush got reelected in 2004, or who the heck goes to his staged town meetings, or who listens to Ann Coulture, I just read the comments posted on these blogs. It shines a light on how the other half "thinks".

Adolph Hitler's Socialist thugs regularly "mugged" opponents and members of unpopular groups even before he came to power.
The people who support the Clinton administration have repeatedly demonstrated their belief that they are entitled to engage in all types of reprehensible behavior to further their cause.
Given Randi Rhodes continues to lie about the so called "sinister intentions of the right wing," it is not unreasonable to suspect that this non-robbery and non assault is an attempt by Socialist thugs to create a mini Reichstag fire to raise her dismal ratings.

I didn't even know she was still on the air.
Thanks to drugereport I guess she will
get quite the boost in ratings.
Faking getting mugged is like faking getting raped, it diminishes
taking real crime seriously.
The National Socialist German Workers Party must be proud of her.

I'm no Bush fan and very disappointed with the rest of the conservative party. However, why don't we pass a law that requires voters have an IQ of 80? Bye Bye Dems... 201148

There's a live one there. So wants control of other peoples bodily functions he just can't stand it. Sounds like one of the neo cons that's getting ready to explode. I'm sure that one's an advocate of torture. He probably enjoys the idea. The interrogators from ww2 were awarded for their duty recently. When most came to the microphone to accept, they denounced what is going on today with interrogation. They didn't torture people in WW2 and we don't need that kind of mind set now.

Im sorry Robert - was the denunciation of torture by WW2 vets reported by Air America??? Didn't hear that one. I am a vet. You get the answers and you kill the ones wanting to kill you. It's a dirty business but thank God your lucky pink ass has people willing to do that for you.

This was fun, although I didn't get much work done. We're all Americans and hopefully we can meet somewhere in the middle. I'm sure our existence depends on it. take care.......

Great attiude RobertM....it was fun.

Robertm,

RE: Your 6:20 comment

HUH...It doesn't read well, use more grammar.

How can you know that people were not tortured in WW2 were you everywhere in the 40's.

That goes against many articles published by victims and court affidavits indicting the guilty from the era.

TR

LOL, she wasn't even mugged.

Nice, the bigotry and jumping to conclusions.

I particularly liked the comment from the person who is "embarrassed to be an American." Yeah, I'm embarrassed that you're an American, too.

What is sad is that none of you really care about Ms. Rhodes. You simply have chosen to lie about what happened to her, then rally around it to give voice to your War Cry of Hatred. Pushing the agenda of the Hatriots.

Why not rally around the truth?

After all of this negative back-and-forth, we see that her own lawyer has made a public statement that there was no attack by any third party.

All of you who believed that there was, and all of you who joined in, are all seriously in need of help. However, the liberals of the group that immediately believed that there was a right wing conspiracy, all of those comments just justify why none of you deserve to have anything serious to say as far as public policy or public governance.

You folks on the left flatter yourselves to think that some eeeevil right-wing muggers are out to silence you. Ha! It appears that the market place is doing that quite nicely without the intervention of those on the right. Few people listen to Air America, that's why it is having such financial difficulties....and why those on the right don't have to worry about silencing you. Hey, it's a free country...you and Rush and Imus all have a right to say whatever you want, but PLEASE, right-wing muggers??!! Don't make me laugh... oh, too late, you already have.

caperruzzi

What third party? Did I miss someting?

As someone mentioned earlier this is a blog with comments whether you agree or not we are not 'in need of help' just a voice.

the definition of politics is to change reality into a perception that augments your agenda. All you liberal loons who are screaming about a conservative attacking your hero are simply engaging in the worst form of politics. Then again,why would we expect anything different
, it's about as stupid as the senate trying to censure a commentator( Rush) about a non issue,Phoney Soldiers. Keep it up and I assure you that you will grasp defeat out of the jaws of victory.

Air America can't even get its own news correct. Nice!

maybe she lay off the coke. seems people at air america are hysterically paranoid.if they run out of toilet paper(considering their financial situation, possibility) is it a vast right wing conspiracy ? LMAO

I see you wackos took my advice and blamed the media for not reporting the truth. Never mind that Rhodes lawyer said there was no mugging[/url] as did Air America.

www.nydailynews.com

Don't let the facts get in the way of a good story, right boys and girls and whatever else might be reading this? This one is almost as ridiculous as claiming Rush Limbaugh hates the troops. But the government got involved in that so a wacko Air America story doesn't stack up except in sheer stupidity value.

You people keep living for lying and see what happens to you down the road. Sooner or later all you burnt out hippies are going to kick the bucket from an overdose or AIDS or some other self destructive phenomenon. Then where will you be? Come to think of it where are you now? No one in their right mind takes you seriously.

If I hadn't seen what unregulated communism leads to I'd just sit back and laugh. But there's no greater evil in history than communism in action so I suppose I'll have to speak out against you wackos. I know you think propaganda will put you in control. It worked for Hitler so why not you right? But you really should pay attention to what happens when you go down that road. You'll have a hard time rounding up Americans and putting them in gulags. It may be MUCH harder than you think.

I'm afraid conservatives have taken over the canine population. Randi's dogs obviously were agents of the right.

talk radio is tanking? Too much hippie-lettuce for you buddy. Just because you look at the airhead America ratings doesn't mean you can project them over the entire spectrum. Limbaugh has higher ratings now than ever before. So does Hannity and Savage and Medved.

As for you to call us scum, you need to look in the mirror and have a good long look. Realize that everything you are accusing those on the Right of being, you are doubly guilty of, and your little tantrum here is all the proof anyone needs. You are completely unhinged and in need of some meds before you hurt yourself or others.

But what does anyone expect? Just like a child who has been caught in a lie, these Libbies who are drifting back in are seeing themselves as the suckers they are and lashing out. rather than contritely admitting they were wrong and apologizing, they once again change the subject and twist it around until "Bush sucks" comes out.

Thing is, you are all vile, loathesome, violent, racist hateful and hate-filled people who are incapable of any rational or deep thought and can only parrot what they here or read from one of your leaders on a Liberal hate-site or radio program. The reason Air America has such a low audience and has had to be bailed out by Soros and other hate-mongers is because no one wants to listen to lies, generalizations and whining all day long.

So, when is this Bush junta going to happen anyway? After all, you guys have been predicting him to throuw out the Constitution and declare himself emperor for some time now. His Presidency is almost up and I'm not seeing it. Besides, you are having too much trouble finding one credible person that you personally know that has had their rights taken away or have anything you people claim actually happen. The only ones removing people's rights are Liberals who are removing people's right to smoke, drink, what car they can drive, where they can work, what they can read, what they can listen to, what they can say etc. I have yet to see anything from the Right that equals what Dems have been trying to do for decades.

So, take your hypocrisy and your self-righteous indignation and sit on it. You have been cught and exposed as the hateful liars and violent criminals you are. Deal with it and figure out how you can change.

In the meantime, I am personally calling for Elliot to be fined and fired from Air America for inciting violence based on a lie he generated by himself and sent out over the airwaves, knowing full well what the reaction from Liberal drones who are to stupid to get the facts would be. Air America should actually show integrity for once and do to him what they want to do to others. Fire and fine him.

Who's with me?

I'm with you! Fire Elliot!

Liberals are the most hateful people I ever encounter. If you don't agree with their views, they belittle you behind your back and to your face. If you disagree, they think you are stupid.

Conversely, I generally don't find that with conservatives. Conservatives are generally more open-minded, but don't want to force their views on others.

As a libertarian, I have friends on both sides and I love them all. When I have parties and mix the two, the results are always the same. Liberals, the group who claims to be the most tolerant, are totally intolerant of the conservatives and their views. Some of these liberals are outright bigots. I am sure there are conservatives like this too, I just don't have any conservative friends like that.

The quickness of the liberals responding to this incident based on outright lies and falsehoods is very telling. Remember, it was a liberal, Jon Elliott, who started this BS about the mugging. He made up a story and called conservatives/republicans vile names on the Rhodes show. I actually heard it and thought it was odd. Turns out it was odd for a reason. She had apparently had approximately 14 Ketel One drinks, Bloody Mary's is the report. I don't know if the alcohol story is true or not either, but the liberals haven't apologized yet.

Basically, the Marxist agenda is all about lies anyway. So, it is not surprising to hear this coming from the leftist. Hilary is selling the lies of socialized medicine and the left is loving it. Socialized medicine wouldn't provide Randi with the care she needs, unless it was for a sex change.

I agree. Liberals (leftists)are a cancer to freedom.

So Needlewhatever

What have you to say for yourself now? Turns out Randi simply FELL DOWN. All you moonbats went off foaming at the mouth and throwing up on your keyboards claiming a right wing conspiracy.

Can a sidewalk be arrested for a hate crime?

Sure, fire Elliott so long as you apply the same standard to others on air who lie and incite violence, e.g. Limbaugh, Savage, Malloy.

As for "Marxist agenda" and other ridiculous hyperbole...the more you attempt to tie this incident with Ms. Rhodes into rants about socialized medicine the more ridiculous your point-of-view. "Conservatives are generally more open-minded" doesn't ring very true if your following comments here are to be taken seriously.

If you STILL don't understand why talk radio doesn't work for liberals, read carefully. It doesn't work for liberals because the VAST majority of talk radio listeners who listen to talk radio are...WORKING! And when it's 140 degrees on the roof, the last thing a man wants to hear is some beatnick wannabe spouting how people who work should pay more in taxes and give it to people who DON'T!

You gotta love the Left. This is just so damn funny. Kudos for Drudgereport.com getting the story in front of more people that might miss it.

I'm...being...mugged...by...reactionary...liberal...hating...heterophobic...NancyBoys...

I see I hit a nerve with all of you right-wing wacko's! It's obvious to me and to most "normal" Americans out there that you are becoming more and more unhinged as each day passes! I love it!

Let me answer a few of the more moronic posts personally....

First, this last idiot who calls himself "retfireman"....you mentioned that "liberals" are racist and hate-filled people. Either you are a complete moron, or you have the IQ of a grapefruit. LIBERALS are hate filled and racist?? Rush Limbaugh laughs and makes fun of someone with Parkinson's disease, calls soldiers who do not agree with George Bush's policies "phony soldiers", and has made a career out of being a racist pig. Ann Coulter, another one of your hero's, spews nothing BUT hatred for Gays, Jews, Muslims, and Liberals to make a buck. As far as your idiotic comment about taking "rights away", how about my right to make a phone call without the possibility of it being listened too illegally?

Second, to the tough guy who said that I wouldn't have the ba lls to say what I wrote face to face. WOW!! You're tough!!! Have you always been this much of a bad a--s?? I'm impressed! But your post was as moronic and ill-advised as your parents conceiving you was. You started off your post by saying that I "proved your point". Where exactly in your post did you have a point? Explain idiot.

And to all the other bitter, lonely rightie's out there who posted such intelligent and thought out messages, (you libs are nut cases, you libs racists, etc.) I completely understand why you would be so depressed over where your political party is heading. We kicked the living tar out of you in the last election, we're going to kick the stuffing out of you in the next presidential election, and most Americans relate more with the Democratic party than to your fast sinking party. Your right-wing neo-con ideology is just about dead in the water. You have a President who stomps on the Constitution almost daily, and your congressmen and religious leaders are caught in scandal after scandal.

This is a fun time to be a Democrat! And if the best you've got is to come on a liberal leaning website and get your jollies off by insulting and gloating over a NON STORY, your'e even more pathetic than I thought!

Enjoy the next 9 years of Liberal rule!!

Leave it to liberal Democrats to make the assumption that Randi Rodes was attacked, when the facts have come out straight from Rhodes' own lawyer.

Here:

www.nydailynews.com

Interesting that fellow Air America Host host Jon Elliot stated, and I quote:

"Is this an attempt by the right-wing, hate machine to silence one of our own?" he asked on the air, according to Talking Radio, a blog. "Are we threatening them? Are they afraid that we're winning? Are they trying to silence intimidate us?"

Mr. Elliot, now that the facts have come out, I believe it is necessary for you to make an on-air apology to the "right-wing" people of America, don't you think? In fact, I'd like to know where Media Matters stands on this. I'd like to know where Harry Reid, along with the rest of the Democrats in the United States Senate stand on this, as well.

I won't hold my breath on the apology from Mr. Elliot.

This all just leads to my good old saying, "When you're a Democrat, it's *just* different"

Given the scenario re: Randi Rhodes, I'd say the shoe definitely fits.

P.S. I find it interesting that during my sign up process on this site, my URL (http://www.democrats-lie.com) was not an accepted URL.

Political bias? Of course not.

It just proves how sick and out of touch with reality Liberals are. I Liberal radio show hosts falls and hurts herself while walking her dog(do you think she was chewing gum at the same time) and the liberal attack machines kicks into gear. They Blame right wingers for a mugging that never happened. Who even listens to Liberal radio?
It never seems to get going even after stealing money to keep it going it still fails. Ratings are everything you left wing menatl midgets and liberal radio doesnt get ratings because it basically sucks. Its not entertaining and its just hate filled crap. Even a fake mugging wont get you ratings.

What it all comes down to is we have a civil war going on in the United States. Right now. I will never agree with you and you will never agree with me. This is the civil war all over again. My brother and I have been in several fistfights over politics. Lots of blood. our wives don't speak. Kids don't talk. Liberals and conservatives. One thing I have noticed.........liberals don't keep guns in their homes. Have a good day.

Everyone is too quick to demonize the other side. Extremes on both sides are a sorry lot. I'm for moderation. I'm sure there are intelligent people in both camps who can find a way to care about something that really matters: The United States of America!

To answer Jon Elliot's questions: No. No. NO. And no.

To think she was attacked by a conservative hit man is maybe the funniest thing I've ever heard, period. Have you seen Air America's ratings? Her audience is about 34 people. Yeah, she needs to be shut up, she's such a threat......HA!

BTW, Jon Elliot (whoever HE is) should be ashamed of himself for his irrational and unfounded conclusion. But of course he won't be, he'll get away with it. Anyone who says anything falsely slanderous against any "conservative" or Republican has a free run. So Sad!

P.S. I find it interesting that during my sign up process on this site, my URL (www.democrats-lie.com) was not an accepted URL.<>

You're being paranoid. If the software here didn't accept that URL, it's because of a bug.

Can someone please help me understand this? Thanks in advance

How did Jon Elliot know that she had no jewelry or money on her when he was accusing the right wing hit squads of attacking her??

And why did her lawyer issue the statement that she "fell" and busted out her teeth? Why use the lawyer??

It was fun while it lasted though, another tin foil hat moment for the leftists is always fun to laugh at.

"What the %$#$ is WRONG with you people?? Are you that SICK in the head that just because you don't agree with someone's political views you believe that they deserve to be mugged? Are you on the right that DEMENTED??," a blogger called neddlenosehanty posted on watchingthewatchers.org.

Fellow host Jon Elliott claimed on the liberal radio network that Rhodes had been mugged while walking her dog, Simon, on Sunday night. Elliot, who said Rhodes lost several teeth in the attack, waxed about a possible conspiracy.

"Is this an attempt by the right-wing, hate machine to silence one of our own?" he asked on the air, according to Talking Radio, a blog. "Are we threatening them? Are they afraid that we're winning? Are they trying to silence intimidate us?"

She fell down you idiots

Gee libs lying...

Surprise, Surprise, Surprise..

Do liberals ever tell the truth about anything? If they really have a legitimate political philosophy shouldn't that be easy to express? Why would you NEED to keep coming up with hoaxes to blame "the right wing"?

"Rhodes' lawyer told the Daily News she was injured in a fall while walking her dog. He said she's not sure what happened, and only knows that she fell down and is in a lot of pain."

"Drunk?"

In one of the comments on the story someone claimed that she had been drinking heavily in a bar and was loud and disorderly.

Her dog must be a conservative!
He pulled her down, made her fall and knock her teeth out. Dang, the next thing you know, he'll have a show alongside O'Reilly and Limbaugh.
It's all a big conspiracy!

Volsrock, you are a genius....I never thought about the drunk angle! Now that you mention it, having listened to her a few times and heard her low class scowling and gutter mouth, you might have nailed it. That definitely seems like the person she is. We'll never know, for sure, so, unlike the dems, we can't accuse outright. But, if I had to bet..................!

So the left lies again. I'm shocked! Shocked I tell you!

At DUh they are still speculating on just how this story got misreported.

Just as with the Clintons, they hold out hope that they weren't deliberately lied to. And then with the truth comes out, they shrug it off.

Just like someone in an abusive relationship. Demagogues can "batter" too.

The left - once again LYING like crazy. What a bunch of LIARS.

Typical liberal propaganda. Construct a ridiculous false story and then use it to bash conservatives. What scares me is the number of drunk liberal bloggers out there who take it hook, line, and sinker without even bothering to check the facts. Talk about a bunch of lemmings... I truly fear the day the left-wing extremists decide to "activate" their army of zombies and incite them to violence.

I'll bet she now wishes she was carrying a handgun to defend herself.

SHE FELL
Her Attorney said there was no mugging. No police report was filed. It is completely irresponsible to speculate that she was attacked by a "right wing conspiracy" when she wasn't. I know that we've gotten to a new low in name calling and finger pointing, but can we at least try not to manufacture stories to make a point.

So now we know what really happened. She was leaning so far to the left that she fell over! HA!

To coultersatrol.
time to come up from your mom,s basement er "the man cave".
it,s past your bedtime and your getting crankey. dipsh*it

Okay now let me get it right, the liberals are liars because they jumped to conclusion to say Ms.Rhodes was attacked, and the conservatives jump to their own conclusions saying she was drunk. Neither of you know what you're talking about. Why don't all take some deep breaths or something and stop making things up that don't know.

Hey, needlenose koolaid drinker. She wasnt mugged. Keep believing the lies. I'm selling the Brooklyn Bridge. Real cheap. Interested???

Hey Roger:

I wonder how long it'll be before the "bug" is fixed.

Would you leave this poor woman alone? She obviously has a problem with alcohol.

If Jon Elliot had kept his mouth shut, this would be a non-issue.

Or ... . is it possible that Mr. Elliot is behind this "accident"?

Sensationalism in a desperate attempt to gain listeners?

I wonder how long it'll be before the "bug" is fixed.

If you want to fix it, Mr. Democrats Lie, here's the block of code:

if (!preg_match("/(https?://)(.*?)/([w./&=?-,:;#~%+]*)/", $homepage)) {

$error .= "The homepage is not a valid URL.";

}

The hyphen in the URL of your site is being rejected, even though it shouldn't be. Let me know when you find the problem.

Air America. What a joke. Should be called "Scare America". Lying is the only way to get (normal) people to listen to you morons.

You can only dream about having the number of listeners that Limbaugh, O'Rieley and Hannity have. Why is it that your ratings suck and theirs don't? Is it the "Vast right-wing conspiracy"? I really would love to hear your excuses.

Talk show host apologizes for faulty report of NYC mugging

"I shouldn't have speculated based on hearsay that Randi Rhodes had been mugged and that it may have been an attack from a right wing hate machine. I apologize for jumping to conclusions based on an emotional reaction," he said in a written statement.

Sounds like HATE speech to me...

400+ really mean-spirited, caustic posts. Wow. We have become mean. Shame on us for indulging this, if we can still feel shame.

name-calling? accusations? "hope you get gang raped"?! For the love of decency, we need to take a breath.

What difference does it make to our lives that this woman got hurt? Is it just another excuse for us to unleash our diatribes on each other? Does our defense of your "side" (which will never resolve anything anyway) make us do our jobs better, or love our spouse better or make us happy in any way that doesn't involve some rather snide vindication?

relax. let's live our lives looking to build each other up rather than sniping and bludgeoning each other anonymously.

thus endeth the sermon.

(now, you're going to flame me, I'm sure. Go ahead, then. I won't be back here to read it, lest I get caught up in this garbage like you all have allowed yourselves to be. sheesh!)

An Air America radio personality apologized Tuesday for saying that a colleague, the liberal talk show host Randi Rhodes, had been the victim of a violent street mugging perpetrated by "the right wing hate machine."

"I shouldn't have speculated based on hearsay that Randi Rhodes had been mugged and that it may have been an attack from a right wing hate machine. I apologize for jumping to conclusions based on an emotional reaction," he said in a written statement.

That is, "200+" comments, not "400+".

"WE" have become mean spirited? Not me, butthead. The lefties lie through there stinking teeth, and you expect "WE" to lie down like a doormat and apologize to "THEM". You're smoking way too much rope.

I wonder if Randi was high on perscription pain Meds got dizzy fell down and doesn't remember what happened.

I would like to see some equal time, here. Since we all paid our Senators to spend time "on the clock" (so to speak)to draft a demand that a private citizen be forced to recant a statement, I think that the Senate should spend as much time drafting the same demand to Mr. Elliot's boss. It's my money that paid for that letter from Mr. Reid and his cronies, and I want an equal amount of my money to be applied here as well.

Of course, the difference here is that Mr. Reid was complaining about something that didn't actually happen. Unfortunately, Mr. Elliott actually made those statements and I'm not sure the Mr. Reid is capable of dealing with reality.

For those who would argue, get the facts on that story. Rush was referring to those who ARE "false soldiers" - people who are actually TRYING to add to the dissent about the war and who are NOT members of the armed forces, but misrepresenting that they are....funny that Rush is being accused of bashing the troops when it was not very long ago at all that he was villified by the same voices for being TOO pro-troops/war/etc.

you are all a bunch of nuts. who is randi rhodes and who cares?

She FELL, you idiots. You so BADLY want something to blame those on the "right" for, that you'll blindly jump over any cliff to do that. It'd be funny if it weren't so tragic.

She was attacked by one of those "phony soldiers" we've been hearing about. But since he did not finish basic and never really went to Iraq, he must have just attacked her for the hell of it since we all know that our soldiers attacke women in the middle of the night. He must have been on recon with John Kerry. What a Farce!!

Smoking causes loss of oxygen to the brain = thus the progressive movement was born.

The people on the right typically complain that the people on the left are wrong, and when the right gets "vicious" they say the left is stupid, moronic, etc. The people on the left, on the other hand, claim that the right is EVIL, and that we WANT to harm America and Americans, destroy the Constitution, hurt poor people etc. Why don't you stick to the ideas and who's right and wrong, and leave the moral judgments about who's "evil" to the terrorists?

Well... how about we leave the moral judgments to God and to the Supreme Court... that is why they're there.

I for one don't understand this whole rant regarding Rhodes. Its turned into a claws-unsheathed all out cat-fight between parties. What I don't understand is the fuss... I should think that Rhodes, a human being, who is in pain, either because of a mugging or a fall, who cares, should be given her constitutional right to personal privacy and spared all of this bizarre speculation.

Governement in general is broken. It has been for centuries. Elected officials spend all of their time taking away funding for important programs, spying on each other, and shmoozing, instead of listening to the people who elected them and voting on the issues that we worry about. I live in NY and have to listen to King Spitzer and Count Bruno bicker every day.

The system is broken and you all know it. If you love this country, wouldn't it make more sense to rally together and get our legislatures to take their jobs more seriously? To work these things out on the chamber floor instead of on an internet blog? If you don't love this country, why are you here? Because you are too afraid of picking up and leaving? Because you are afraid of what lies beyond our borders (if you can call them borders).

Many of the posters in this blog, on both sides of the fence, embarass me as an American.

Wow and I thought the Huffpost headline writers were snacks. Why would the headline on this say "Police Deny". Why not Rhodes and her attorney said it never happened. This headline is trying to make it seem like an attack might have still happened but the cops are denying it. Great site folks. Way to jump the gun into a a "vast right wing consipracy".

I laugh at you.

Amen, Thehill, Amen.

Why would the headline on this say "Police Deny". Why not Rhodes and her attorney said it never happened.

I spoke to the police. I never got Rhodes or her attorney on the phone. Once it became clear that Jon Elliott didn't know what the hell he was talking about, I wanted to get the denial out there as fast as I could.

Im sorry Robert - was the denunciation of torture by WW2 vets reported by Air America??? Didn't hear that one. I am a vet. You get the answers and you kill the ones wanting to kill you. It's a dirty business but thank God your lucky pink ass has people willing to do that for you.

www.washingtonpost.com

Here's the Washington Post report of the WWII interrogators. Being a Right Wing extremist You'll probably start a swift boat campaign against them.
Just like the right disenfrachises any vets or soldiers that use their freedom of speach to express their opinion. I don't blame you for staying on the extreme right because you know the right wing fringe will turn their back on you in a heartbeat if you criticize them. Or you'll say the Washington Post or the left is controlling the main stream media therefore these reports aren't true....

I wonder how long it'll be before the "bug" is fixed.

I couldn't help but notice Rogers Cadenhead also runs the "Drudge Retort"

I just have to ask: Rogers, can't you be a little more original, or is mimicking the popular Drudge Report the best idea you can come up with?

Doesn't really look very original to me. I mean, you even registered drudge.com. Not original at all. The layout, even the typeface is the same.

SO much for liberal Democrat creativity I guess......

But then again, imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.

Another Dim needs a helment so she wont hurt herself.

Synthesizing several previous posters, this story finally proves that tin foil hats do not make adequate helmets. I'm sorry Looney Lefty Air Heads, but you must wear only ANSI-approved bicycle helmets while walking outdoors and you are hereby outlawed from simultaneously chewing gum, talking on cell phones, or walking your dog while doing so.

And of course you must wear an ANSI helmet after drinking to excess. After all, your equilibrium is already grossly compromised by leaning so far Left in the first place. That's why the institution required your parents to sign that form before they'd issue you that special weekend pass in the first place.

It's just too bad that this city has abrogated the Second Amendment. If she had been packing, she could have protected herself by shooting the sidewalk as it came up to smash her face. Of course her draw and aim would be impaired by the alcohol ...

As every shooter knows, the true meaning of "gun control" is a steady hand, proper sight picture, and a smooth trigger pull.

Or, maybe all that alcohol made her especially "Randi" and she decided to follow that Beatles tune that asked, "Why don't we do it in the Rhodes?" with her male, non-metrosexual dog that treated her like one of his canine bitches, viciously humping her doggy-style while her face got tattooed into the lamp post.

Or, the dog is a conservative that purposefully tripped her ...

Come on Left Wing Nuts, I'm trying to come up with a conspiracy that works! Help me with it. After all, the world can't make sense to you libs if there's not a conspiracy to explain it.

Oh, and by the way, for those unfamiliar with Manhattan, 39th and Park is in the Murray Hill section, best known as a rich, white, liberal enclave where apartments start at $3,000 a month and the nearest black tenant is at least two miles away. Carolyn Maloney (liberal white Democrat) is the congresswoman with a totally safe, 90% Democrat district. Just the perfect neighborhood for a down-for-the-struggle "progressive" white shriek (sic) like Randi Rhodes. Lots of street cred earned living in a white millionaire, segregated enclave.

Of course, it's a topic for another day, how she can afford such a tony neighborhood as Murray Hill on her total audience of 37 ...

Just Googled a picture of Randi... No chance of her getting raped.

Don't worry about our Randi fellow libs! She will be as good as new in a few days and we do not have to worry about the quality of her show. I think she already had brain damage before her head hit the pavement.

Doesn't really look very original to me. I mean, you even registered drudge.com. Not original at all. The layout, even the typeface is the same.

SO much for liberal Democrat creativity I guess......

Rethugslie,

Ever hear of parody? Satire? A piss-take? A Lampoon?

So much fer regressive Rethuglicunt's ability to recognise humour.

Is it a chromozone you guys are missing or do you guys actually have yer senses of humour surgically removed as an integral part of taking the Bush Loyalty oath?

how she can afford such a tony neighborhood

Ha! Spud luffs how whackjobs on the right are always whinging on about Gore's jet or the cost of Edwards haircut or in this instance Randi Rhodes address when at the end of the day they worship Mammon above all else.

That goes beyond hypocrisy and begins to enter the arena of the seriously unwell.

Ta fer the LolZ, asswipes.

Be Well.

Me: "... how she can afford such a tony neighborhood as Murray Hill on her total audience of 37 ..."

Dethspud: "Ha! Spud luffs how whackjobs on the right are always whinging on about Gore's jet or the cost of Edwards haircut or in this instance Randi Rhodes address when at the end of the day they worship Mammon above all else.

It was a third grade math question. My apologies to you that it was obviously over your head.

BTW, what's "whinging"?

New Yawk Eaglet,

It was a third grade math question

It was a low class and unfunny joke referencing Air America's numbers.

My apologies to you that it was obviously over your head.

Spud is 8 1/2 inch tall talking potato. Most stuff is over Spud's head. The fact of the matter is that Rethugs routinely chide Dems who have money fer having money as if they were hypocrisy incarnate and they also chide 'em when they don't have money as being failures. Y'all got an answer fer everything and it's usually the wrong one.

BTW, what's "whinging"?

It's whining taken to the Nth degree.
To the point of being cringe-inducing.
A prevalent trait amongst the RT crowd in Spud's experience.

Deth is wordsmith Spud!

Believe that.

Be Well.

You know, in Watership Down, Chronicles of Narnia, Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter children's books, one must learn a new language to understand the fantasy world in the novel. But I'm hard-pressed to ascertain a payoff to learning your make believe language.

You may believe it's creative and that you are a "wordsmith", but it's really just more mumbo jumbo from someone who can't think straight. (I.e., a leftist.)

And, no: "Of course, it's a topic for another day, how she can afford such a tony neighborhood as Murray Hill on her total audience of 37 ..."

is not an attempt at a joke. It is a simple, third-grade math question. She may have married well, or her father may have left her a fortune, but she definitely can't pay her rent on what her radio job pays.

You know, in listening to one of George Bush's speeches one must learn a new language in order to understand the fantasy world he believes we live in. "Enviromentalists" are crazy and dangerous but "Conservationists" are okay. "Global Warming" has become "Climate Change". "Torture" has become "Enhanced Interrogation". "Kidnapping" has become "Rendition". "Illegal Resource Wars" are "Legal Pre-emptive Strikes". "murderous mercenaries" are "civilian contractors". "Bribed, co-erced and threatened countries" become a "coalition of the willing". "Outing an NOC CIA agent working to keep WMD out of the hands of bad guys" becomes "preserving national security". "Bleeding Billions of tax dollars into no-bid cost plus contracts with pals of the BushCo regime w/o anything resembling accountability or transparency" becomes "securing our vital interests".

A lame assed joke belittling Air America's numbers and sleazy open ended speculation as to where Randi Rhodes gets her money from becomes "a simple, third grade math question".

Well at least you got the "simple" part right.

If yer haffing trouble with any of that get a lefty or a third grader to explain it to you.

Be Well.

Since you're obsessed with the question, why don't you answer the third-grade math question then: "How does Randi Rhodes afford her apartment in tony Murray Hill on her miniscule ratings?"

It is a simple, third-grade math question. She may have married well, or her father may have left her a fortune, but she definitely can't pay her rent on what her radio job pays.

Randi Rhodes has a 20-year career as a radio talk show host and the best known host on Air America, which has at least 50-70 stations. The notion she can't pay for an apartment is ludicrous.

It's not just an apartment. If you knew anything about Manhattan real estate (or had read what I wrote), you'd realize that the woman is living in the Brahmin, multi-millionaire enclave. We're talking several thousand dollars a month for just a tiny studio apartment.

But maybe this story explains it?:
www.politicalgateway.com

Eaglet still beaking off?

Quel suprise!!

First off, wot is the point to yer oft repeated question?

Does Spud know whether or not Randi's AA salary pays her mortgage/rent/wotever?

No, no Spud does not. Does Eaglet? Apparently not either.

Does Spud paricularily give a flying fuck about the fact? Again. No?

So why is the Eaglet so insistant?

Is Eaglet insinuating that there is anything at all substantive to his posts other than reflexive reich wing dismissal of AA and a cheap shot at the numbers?

But maybe this story explains it all

Explains enuff. Reichwing radio "personalities" like Rush and Glenn Beck are snake oil salesman with tenuous grasps on reality. They aint pundits so much as they are human train wrecks in progress entertaining the deliberately dumbed down masses with their mad skillz in the fields of both bullying and being blowhards.

Is Al Franken over-paid fer wot he does? Hard to say. Spud only listens to AA fer Randi's show and even then only off and on.

Why are there so few really great left wing radio announcer types on the airwaves? Cos liberals have a more obvious pro-people anti-corporate agenda that is anathema to the MSM who live to serve Big Biz and Big Gov (now practically indistinguishable from each other, btw). Try blogtalk radio which is radio by the people, of the people and for the people. There are more liberal voices there, unencumbered by a room fulla suits saying "You can't say THAT fer Christsakes!"

One thing about this story, it certainly clearly underscored the mean-spiritedness of the right in blog-world. So full of hate and ignorance are they. It's quite sad really.

Be Well.
