Air America Host Suspended for Obscenity-Laced Rant Against Clinton, Ferraro


Air America Host Suspended for Obscenity-Laced Rant Against Clinton, Ferraro

Air America radio has suspended talk show host Randi Rhodes for what has been described as an appalling rant against Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Clinton supporter Geraldine Ferraro.

Rhodes used obscene language in her choice remarks during a March 22 appearance in San Francisco, sponsored by an Air America affiliate station. In a statement issued on the liberal radio network’s Web site, Air America chairman Charlie Kireker said that kind of salty talk has no place in the political dialogue.

“Air America encourages strong opinions about public affairs but does not condone such abusive, ad hominem language by our hosts,” reads the statement by Kireker, issued on Thursday.

Calls to Air America for comment were not immediately returned.

During what was an apparent stand-up routine, Rhodes attacked Ferraro, the former vice presidential candidate, for saying that Clinton rival Barack Obama has benefited in the Democratic presidential race because he is black.”Geraldine Ferraro turned out to be the David Duke in drag. Who knew?” Rhodes said to laughter. “What a whore Geraldine Ferraro is, she’s such a f*****g whore.”

A few minutes later, Rhodes said”Hillary is a big f*****g whore too.” She then suggested Clinton was trying to force her way into the Democratic nomination by manipulating pledged delegates. “Oh, f**k you, okay, f**k you,” she said.

Ferraro said Rhodes should be fired.

Did you ever think you would see the day that Air America would turn on its own? Randi Rhodes is a popular host on the radio show; lets see if she comes back.

The cannibalism has begun...stay out of the way of flying forks and knives!
Why is it that leftistas need to use language like tht? It just reflects their lack of brain function...they are exposing their toddler state. After all, toddlers have just discovered bathroom humor, leftistas are stuck there!
How pathetic is that?
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

Randi Rhodes always was such a charmer. Bad background. Bad character. Wrong side of history.

Hope she stays out of public life permanently.

I have mixed feelings about this.

1. Why it's bad:
A rant like this just further illustrates the deterioration of the culture. Young lefties likely watch this and think it's now okay to use such language in gatherings. It's just more sewage thrown on our culture.
Also the lefties see this as an opportunity to SILENCE political speech!@ After all Randi is THEIR Airhead, so she gives them cover to chop away at free speech. The end game for the left is the SILENCE conservative speech. NEVER forget that!

2. Why it's good:

IT'S SO SWEET to watch these Marxist vultures eating and defecating on their own! There is great joy to be had there!

This is liberals at their best, this is who and what they are. Amazing isn't it? This is what passes for intelligence, brains and a sound arguement from them. In reality, Rhodes doesn't sound any different I'm sure than any college professor on any campus in America today. I wouldn't be surprised if that is where she got her material from. J'Mac.
