That’s OK, Jon. Tell ya what; Greenwald can claim I’m pro-torture, if he likes… because under some conditions I am. .. and for all the moralizing that’s been thrown at the issue, nobody’s ever come up with an even remotely lucid reason against it that can be used under all conditions, thereby negating the blanket ban […]

Scott Fybush over at NERW, says: There’s a lineup change to report at WWRL (1600 New York), as the Access.1-owned talker pulls more Air America programming off its schedule. Instead of Air America’s Lionel from 9 AM-noon, WWRL now carries two hours of infomercials followed by a local show at 11 with Ron Samuels. At […]

James Joyner:   The bitterness of the Democratic presidential race kicked up another notch yesterday, with the discovery that popular Air America radio host Randi Rhodes recently performed a profanity-laced standup routine in which both Geraldine Ferraro and Hillary Clinton were repeatedly referred to as “big f-ing whores” (minus the sanitization, naturally).

Free Speech: Sadly, Mr. Chuck Adkins of Lincoln Park, Michigan has now taken his rude behavior a step too far. Tonight I posted a respectful comment (no profanity or anything) to his blog asking him to explain to me how Limbaugh had “mocked” the Frost kid. I don’t listen to Rush, so I was curious. […]

Err America personality, Randi Rhodes, victim of an unfortunate accident, opened her program with her so-called explanation, video. It is not an explanation unless, Rhodes explains how much she drank.  The explanation is inadequate unless she reveals how much time she spent in the Irish bar and how many drinks she consumed.   Does Rhodes not know […]

A thoughtful, caring post from RightWingDuck at IMAO today: Ms. Rhodes was doing nothing wrong at the time except walking her dog. Many on the left are saying that this could not possibly be random. I agree, nothing is out of place as much as a person in New York being mugged. On a positive […]

Our sympathy to Randi Rhodes. May she get well soon. Our deep felt animus the Bitsblog’s Jerk of the Day, Err America’s Jon Elliot, who manged to enage his gator sized mouth before activating his brain.  Barooosk, Talking Radio : Elliott was extremely agitated when he reported on the incident.
