Rhodes Mugged

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.]

wel duh - everybody knows you're not supposed to eat the book and crappe it out and expect it to be called a best seller!

...sure hope that gastrointestinal thing clears up for her...

I wish no ill on anyone. And getting the crappe beat out of you is traumatizing.
But this instant jumping on the screaming and hollering about rightwing nuts is childish!
She lives in NYC for heaven sakes! It is dangerous, even in 'safe' neighborhoods, let the police find the creep who did this, then make a judgment call!
If it's an ordinary street thug will all rightwing nuts get a VERY PUBLIC APOLOGY? I doubt it!

The right wing hate machine is responsible for Manhattan muggings? Now THAT is funny.

Good blog. I'll be back

I just heard on Rush that she wasn't mugged at all, but fell & busted up her face.

Lies. Lies. And more lies.

mustang: Thank you for your kind words.

angel: Sometimes sheesh says it all ;-)

nanc: I thought she was nutters before I heard that she made up the mugging.

tmw: No apologies will be forthcoming. The libs will find a reason why we're not owed one.

jan: Thanks. Glad you liked it.

Hey, if the RWDB wanted to put someone on a "hit list", well, everybody knows that the elephants are the gun toters. Yee-hoo! She wouldn't be mugged, she'd be shot!

that being speculated, did she really just fall? What a maroon!


nanc said...

wonder what she was smoking?

The Merry Widow said...

Well, she tripped, how very human of her, her fellow djs jumped to conclusions. I'll say this for her, she sent her lawyer out to tell the straight story, which was she tripped and fell.
At least the dj apologized, the DU'ers and others are still frothing at the mouth!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

Hey, I'm all for giving these morons enough rope to hang themselves with. The more the libs
talk, the better we look.

Can you imagine the lynch mob in the press if it had been Rush, or Ann, or Hannity that had created this mugging scenario?

Fortunately for the libs, liberal talk radio doesn't have a big audience and they can just rake this little "scandal" under the rug.

Tomorrow (and yes, I can spell tomorrow) this will be spinned... "What mugging? How dare you make fun of a woman who fell on her face & became disoriented. How heartless... yada yada yada..."
