No sympathy for Randi Rhodes:
Apparently, she was on a tour as a representative of Air America. Calling Hillary Clinton a "fucking whore" was coarse and inappropriate. She deserved to go.
Rhodes was on XM tonight with Mark Maron filling in on Malloy's Nova M show (Maron & Malloy also were fired by AAR). She claimed that the new AAR owners were trying to play hardball with her contract before they would let her back on air, so she went to Nova M radio network.
Anyway I agree she deserved to be fired. She has been really nasty saying that Clinton should quit the race on air for months since she can not mathematically win the delegate count. Rhodes is right about Clinton's delegates, but the vitriol should be saved for McCain.
AAR seems to be snubbing Seder to be Rhodes replacement. They do not have a clue.
How sad. Rhodes just about made Oliver North cry on air, you could almost hear him knocking over his chair when he fled her interview. Because she kept asking him to tell the truth.
It's my favorite radio moment, I wish her well and I hope she lands a fabulous gig, because she really can help make the US better.
Sympathy? She won.
She gets out of this situation in better shape then she went in, and Air America has forced out their most popular host.
My bold prediction? In six months Nova M hires Maddow and Seder, and Air America goes under.
