Air America radio personality, Randi Rhodes, was mugged on Sunday night while she was walking her dog Simon near her Manhattan apartment.
According to Air America Radio late night host Jon Elliott, Rhodes was beaten up pretty badly, losing several teeth and will probably be off the air for at least the rest of the week.
Then Elliott jumped to a biased conclusion:
"Is this an attempt by the right wing hate machine to silence one of our own," he asked. "Are we threatening them. Are they afraid that we're winning. Are they trying to silence intimidate us."
Gosh, I didn't get that Republican Hit Squad memo, did you?
[The BLOG note: Before the liberal lurkers out there torch me for using the cover of Randi Rhodes "book", let me add that the "book" was never released because Rhodes suffered severe gastrointestinal distress in the process of compiling it.]
