Video DUmmie FUnnies: How I Made Randi Rhodes a National Radio Star... REALLY!!!
YouTube ^ | February 12, 2019 | DUmmie FUnnies

VIDEO

This is the amazing but true and very HILARIOUS story about how I made Randi Rhodes a national talk radio star. When liberal Air America first started in 2004, all its hosts were celebrities except for Randi Rhodes. So how did Randi come to the attention of Air America despite the fact that previously she was laboring in almost total obscurity? Well, what began as a joke in a movie review written by Yours Truly became all too real as you shall see in this video.

Let’s not forget Randi’s stumbling-down drunk, drive-by mugging at the bottom of her walk-up that cold winter day. With her dog.

Did wee willie pick up the poop?

Ah yes! Her 14 Bloody Marys fortified by Ketel One adventure. I wanted to talk about that but I wanted to keep this video OT.

Links to the two FR articles referenced in the video:

Al Gore Reviews The Italian Job (And Ponders Hiring Randi Rhodes As Radio Talk Host)

Randi Rhodes Sends Personal E-Mail To PJ-Comix (Text)

BTW, PJ, I remember both of those threads.

Yup! And I guarantee you Randi used my review to get the attention of Air America. Yeah, I made her look like the NUTCASE that she was/is but she was so desperate to go national that she probably figured there is no such thing as bad publicity.

I’m not saying this to put you down, or your influence in the Randi Rhodes saga, but when you said in the video “just to give you an idea of how big she was,” I don’t think she was ever really very big at all. It’s just that the MSM back then, including the WP, NYT, NPR, and others, was doing everything they could do to boost and promote Air America. They actually thought they could mount a credible counterattack against Rush Limbaugh, which was a total pipe-dream. Or maybe I should say bong-dream.

They stole the name Air America from the CIA’s airline in Laos during the Vietnam war. I flew in their helicopters inside Vietnam a couple of times.

In case people forget, the MSM once loudly proclaimed her the liberal replacement for Rush.

I did a search about her a few weeks ago and could find nothing in the news about her since early 2016. Just searched again and found the the 2010s decade hasn’t been kind to her.

At some level I miss these nutbars because most weren’t running anything or in a position of power like our current barking moonbats.

From 10:50 in the video:

As a result, Randi is shamelessly promoting herself for the slot, on the air, to the extent of asking the viewers to call up the radio syndication services and plead her case.

I mean, can you imagine that, she actually was on the air, begging her listeners... to call up.

...and then of course to leave WJNO...

I don't know how the managers allowed her to do that, but they did.

I'm thinking the reason might involve the subject of Lewinskis, mentioned earlier in the video.

I remember her being interviewed on CSPAN. In deciding a career choice her father’s input:”you’re not that pretty so...” A father who would say that to his daughter will raise up one screwed up kid.

I thought video killed the radio star. I remember hearing that somewhere . . .

I used to listen to her on Airhead America. She had quite a girl crush on Valerie Plame. To hear her tell it, Valerie was the female James Bond, single-handedly keeping us safe from another 9/11.

I gather she has "issues," but I would have thought that many on-air personalities have "issues."

Too bad it didn't work out. She would have been good for our side.
