Randi Rhodes Wishes Global Warming Would Cause Flood to Wash Out Limbaugh's Home
Newsbusters ^ | December 1, 2010 | Tim Graham

Posted on 12/02/2010 7:33:02 AM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

Don't let anyone claim that liberal talk radio show hosts don't wish for bad things to happen. On Monday's show, Randi Rhodes was giddy about the prospect of global warming causing the oceans to rise enough to engulf Rush Limbaugh's Florida home:

And so, the global warming deniers -- like Rush Limbaugh, whose house I can't wait until the ocean swells and eats his house -- and he will be the first to go because he's got the best location! He's on Palm Beach, which is nothing but a little island...a long, skinny, little sliver of billion dollars worth of -- crap! Mostly over-the-top, overdecorated, overpainted, overdone houses with silk draperies and Renaissance designs in a tropical setting...On the edge of this little silvered island with a rising, rising ocean -- he's going first, I live out west, my house is going to be the new Palm Beach and I can't wait. I can't freaking wait!

Liberal radio host Bill Press was also giddy, but about the conviction of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay in a Texas county court: "I enjoyed this so much for a couple of reasons. First of all, it's just because he is such an evil guy. What goes around comes around."

Sounds like Randi hasn’t recovered fully from her face dive on that NYC sidewalk yet.

And if it did, Rush would just take his insurance money and checkbook and do it all over again, bigger and better. That’s the reward for American exceptionalism.

Sorta the opposite of liberal talk radio...

She may as well park her ass in a pumpkin patch and wish for the great pumpkin if she’s hoping for global warming to do anything.

"my house is going to be the new Palm Beach and I can't wait"

Hmm. She hates the people on Palm Beach, but she wants to be them.

Liberals hate themself.

That's why they attack America. They are attacking themself. It's like self-harm.

I sent a prayer to God asking that he strike Rhodes dead. And if he can't immediately hit her with a lightning bolt I asked him to consider striking her with:

1. Ovarian cancer

2. Brain timor

3. Elephantitis

4. Bitten by Black Mamba

5. Car crash at 100mph into brick wall.

Just got a reply. God said she's not even worth it!

Oh, Bless her. She does realize that such a tidal increase would wipe out most of NYC, right? (The top of the Empire State Building would be spare, I guess.) And Limbaugh doesn’t even broadcast from there any more.

Don't let anyone claim that liberal talk radio show hosts don't wish for bad things to happen.

Who in the world ever posited this preposterous lie? Only a liberal flake, I suppose.

I have personally heard plenty of invective from talk radio and talk TV hosts: from wishes for the assassination of Bush, to wishing Jesse Helms grandchildren would die of AIDS, to the "hilarious" jokes about raping Palin's daughter.

The level-headed, mild-mannered liberal is an urban myth.

She is just jealous. When liberals get rich that is just fine ay? Rush was not born rich but he attained it through work and talent.He pays lots of taxes to the Govt and also employs people too.
Liberals live well in America in a system they deplore. Michael Savage is sooooo right. Liberalism IS a Mental Disorder....BIGTIME.

It’s hard for most rational people to understand the irrational hatred and vitriol that comes from the left.

These people just don’t dislike, THEY HATE, and they HATE with every fiber of their being. That many are willing to act on that hatred is even more frightening.

People like Rhodes are told by rich Democrats to hate rich people, while those same rich Democrats use that hatred to put even more money in their own pockets.

There is a term for this: USEFUL IDIOT

This old drunken hog is awfully bitter. How's that fabu radio career going, huh Rand? I dare say she's a bit jealous of Rush.

I could never listen to more than 5 minutes of her silly program when she was on Air America. That screeching Yenta crap drives listeners away pretty quick. Is she even on the air outside of Fla anymore?

The Miami Herald described her as "a chain-smoking bottle blond,...part Joan Rivers, part shock jock Howard Stern and part Saturday Night Live's 'Coffee Talk' lady. But mostly, she's her rude, crude, loud, brazen, gleeful self."

While teaming with host Perry Stone at Milwaukee's WQFM, Rhodes was suspended in 1987 when their program offended the gay community and led several businesses to cancel ads.

Air America host Randi Rhodes wasn't mugged,
NYDailyNews.com reported

Air America Radio host Randi Rhodes is temporarily off the air, but cops and her lawyer say reports she was mugged near her Manhattan apartment were bogus.

A police source said Rhodes never filed a report and never claimed to be the victim of a mugging.

Rhodes' lawyer Robert Gaulin told the Daily News she was injured in a fall while walking her dog, but she wasn't sure exactly what happened.

"She did get injured. She's in pain and is recovering and looks forward to being back on the air Thursday," he said.

Rhodes appeared to have a cut lip when she was ushered to a car in front of her ritzy Park Ave. building Tuesday. She did not answer a reporter's questions.

Buy everything you can in Fort Meyers, soon to be a tropical island. I mean at current rates this should happen in about 300 years, or about the time between the present and the Salem Witch Trials.

Has anyone ever seen a liberal 'tolerant' of anyone - or anything - other than themselves?

Guess Rush is the lucky recipient of that famous liberal inclusiveness we hear so much about.../s

Air America suspended Rhodes from the network on April 3, 2008 after an Air America affiliate, KKGN, event in San Francisco, California, where Rhodes said on March 22, 2008:

"Geraldine Ferraro turned out to be the David Duke in drag ... What a whore Geraldine Ferraro is! She's such a f*cking whore! I wanna see her have to stand beside her husband at one of those mandatory 'I have sinned against you; I'm a whore' kind of a press conference. Mr. Ferraro should have to stand next to his whore of a wife ... Hillary is a big f*cking whore, too. You know why she's a big f*cking whore? Because her deal is always, 'Read the fine print, asshole!'"

The liberals push the view that conservatives are hateful, homophobic, intolerant, etc. and that it’s only good liberals who are kind, gentle, celebrate diversity, are tolerant of all, etc. Yep, we see how tolerant liberals are at certain times.

Where can I listen to Randi Rhodes? I thought Air America went off the air?

She has described herself as an activist for accountability and standards in the media, and has spoken at congressional hearings about creating a framework of national standards for what can be labeled news.

In 1994 Rhodes married Jim Robertson, an independent television producer and cameraman. They had been together for ten years prior to marrying. Rhodes and Robertson divorced in April 2004 but have remained friends. Rhodes took the name Robertson when she married, but continued to use her professionally known name on the air.

Boy these liberals...they all have the Dusty Springfield mentality..."Wishin' and Hopin'" their way through life.

I'll bet Rhodes still waits for the Tooth Fairy..."global warming" has been so disproven and is drying up faster than algore's ethonol account.

Unlike the libtards, Rush did not build on weak and shifting sand; he generally knows what he is talking about and has overcome and overpower those much more powerful than "Randi Rhodes". Puleeeezzzeeee.

But, kids like to sit around and wish for this and wish for that...it's how they glean a bit of courage to face the day.

When Rush was having his drug problems, Rhodes might have had a local Palm Beach area radio show opposite him.

I do recall reading that she was good friends with the wife of the DA that ended up going after Rush.

How did she manage to do that?!

******

Back in 1999, Randi Rhodes allegedly urinated on a Christmas tree at a party thrown by co-horts from WJNO, her station at the time.

Randi admits that she’d had a few martinis, but she maintains that she was just play-acting.

However, the party’s hostess claims otherwise:

“I’m just happy the tree was on tile and not carpet”
