Randi Rhodes Challenges FREEPERS
January 29, 2005 | watchdog_writer

Posted on 01/29/2005 7:52:07 AM PST by watchdog_writer

Air America Radio – Randi Rhodes

SHE SAID IF YOU SEND HER YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS SHE WILL SEND YOU U.S. GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS PROVING THAT OUR TROOPS "CUT THE FINGERS OFF OF IRAQI PRISONERS"  She says we FREEPERS are calling in and don't know what we're talking about.   rrhodes@airamericaradio.com

          Since I have never listen to Air America I thought I might do so for my own information. This is what I found:

          January 29th the day that elections are about to begin in Iraq, and what does she talk about to her audience?

She says that William Kristol of The Weekly Standard “helped” the President with his inauguration speech. Then later said how great the speech was. Did he help the president with his speech?

She criticized Giuliani for being married 3 or 4 times, she cant remember and although he speaks like a conservative, “he lives like a liberal”. Is that a put down of liberals? 

          She was married in a drive through in Los Vegas.  She actually said that after saying how stupid Limbaugh is for being married 3 or 4 times she can’t count that high.

 SHE LOVES OUR TROOPS:  

           But says that prison guards were pulling people’s finger nails out cutting the fingers off of Iraqi prisoners. She claims that she has government records to support her claims. When a caller asked her who was indicted for such actions, she put him on hold.

          She repeated Ted Kennedy’s ridiculous statement asking: “Rape rooms are closed? No they are under new management.”

          Smearing menstrual blood on Saudi men’s faces?  Obviously lying about the intelligence since it was actually red ink.

          Don’t let the blood from a man’s brain go to his crouch area, because all he can do is grunt.

          She claims that Islam doesn’t outlaw the fantasy lives of American prison guards.

          All these problems are coming from the religious WRONG, we are the religious right because we know right from wrong.

 

CORRUPTION IN THE MEDIA:

          Bush said he planted the flag of freedom, but he planted it on the bodies of naked Iraqis.  She doesn’t explain what she meant by that.

          The Power of Nightmares, she says please write to HBO and put it on the air.

          Why are not people not screaming: “this is not the America of our birth”?

          She says that FOX is not journalism. She called Donna Fadushbag. And your point is Randi?

          Newt Gingrich fooled around with his nubile staff members? He's just a liberal at heart I guess?

          An intelligent listener called in to wish her a “happy friggin birthday”.    Then Randi said: I don’t like to meet my listeners. I wonder why?

          Idiot conservatives said that Air America was going to bomb, but then “all that money” came in. (from whom?)

          The media is bought and paid for? Who is she talking about?

          After quoting a FREEPER about how Bush had nothing to do with ordering the troops to use certain methods of interrogation she set the record straight: Action memo by Gonzales proves that Bush took action to “torture” the prisoners at Abu Grebe. Really? Then she cautions her listeners to “check the actual documents” when they listen to “the media”.  Ok, good idea. Show us the documents Randi.

Well, I know she is wrong on that. It was Charles Krauthamer (sp?)

I have proof that Rhodes is an imecile. It only requires that one listen to her show for about two minutes.

I wouldn't do it. The stupid wench is likely to give your email address out to a bunch of DUers and let you get mail-bombed.

Besides, her secret government documents are about as authentic as CBS's documents on President Bush's TANG service.

Evidently her news source is al Jazeera. But where are the a-J interviews? Where are the victim pics? Where are the docs?

What do I care what Randy Rhondes says? She's a certifiable nutjob and has the intellectual prowess Gomer Pyle.

She promotes unsustainable lies as the truth and then invents ridiculous sources as "evidence". When she's challenged on the simplest fact she retreats by either hanging up, changing the subject or screaming incoherently. She's dumber than a California Senator and has less credibility. The fact that she even has any consistent audience is proof positive that simians have evolved enough to turn on AM Radios, they just aren't smart enough to change the station yet. She's the only talk show host I know who intentionally keeps her words relegated to two syllables or less as not to confuse her core listeners. Even then I think they're simply responding to the tone in her voice.

She appears to be an Al Jazeera, Baghdad or Tehran Tulip, not worth the effort to either respond to...and no challenge whatsoever. Just another enemy within IMHO.

"...how stupid Limbaugh is for being married 3 or 4 times..."

That's the only thing she's ever said that's accurate. Rush is Chairman and CEO of the Dumb Ass Club.

Provided you define the word "troops" in the loosest possible sense I'm sure it happens all the time... whenever US Military Doctors need to amputate fingers while treating wounded soldiers, civilians, and military prisoners.

If the fingers were cut off Iraqi prisoners and they were then released, they would not be able to operate triggers of rifles or shoulder-fired rockets, now would they?

Sounds like a top drawer, 'A' number one, super-duper plan to me.

Sounds like she's trying to pump her failed ratings up by goading conservatives into listening to her and by manufacturing artificial controversies. Maybe she should give back the money she goaded DUmmies into donating to huckster Bev Harris instead. Ignore her and she'll go away. In fact, ignore Err America altogether. It's already on life support.

I say we give up. This challenge is too big for us. Lets cede this terrority and retreat back to the less significant issuse like Iran, Justices, Judges, SS. She and her fellow liberals are just no match.

It's been a good week! First seeing Al Franken actually CRY on a CBC hit-job special about FOX news, and now this challenge from RR! :)

http://nationalreview.com/york/york200404060841.asp

"This show is about taking back our country," Franken said on the first day of his program, The O'Franken Factor. "It's about relentlessly hammering away at the Bush administration until they crack and crumble this November, because, don't get me wrong, friends, they are going down."

Given the size of the Air America audience — one radio expert called it "microscopic" — it seems reasonable to say that if the president indeed goes down, it won't be because of the new liberal talk radio network. After the intense media attention that surrounded Air America's debut fades away, the network will likely spend the rest of this year trying to build a tiny listenership into a small one, and then to go from there. In any event, it won't be shaking the world. "Everybody deals with it based on the premise that it is big, that is somehow has a chance to make an impact on the world on a level that is far beyond its physical ability," says Michael Harrison. "It's not a national audience."

I hear the Death Rattle in the lungs of Air Amerika. Can you? ;)

Why anyone would pay to advertise on Randi Rhodes' show defies comprehension.

She/he/it (with these lib types, who can tell?) has thrown down the gauntlet.

Seems now we get to choose the weapons we shall duel with.

Since a battle of wits is out of the question, (Who wants to fight with an unarmed leftist spew-piece) I suggest we take the Zell Miller approach.

Alright Rhodes, I've got my spitball straw ready, bring it Beotch!
