Randi Rhodes Blasts Keith Olbermann

The DUmmies and the KOmmies are in an uproar. Randi Rhodes temporarily emerged from radio obscurity long enough today to blast Keith Olbermann on her show. Here is what Randi posted on her BLOG:

Last night's Countdown on MSNBC was devoted to a one-hour "special comment" by Keith Olbermann. I always thought a comment was a brief observation. Evidently I was wrong about the "brief" part. I'm sorry, but that was the most self-indulgent hour I've heard since Emerson, Lake & Palmer broke up. Keith! Talking for an entire hour isn't a comment. It's a filibuster. Olbermann railed on for an hour about how we need healthcare reform. Keith, the best thing about stating the obvious is that you can state it pretty quickly. At least most people can. Watching that there were a lot of things I wanted to hear Keith Olbermann say. But mostly I wanted to hear him say "And in conclusion..."

OUCH! What really makes this FUnnie are the outraged blasts at Randi from the DUmmies and KOmmies for daring to attack their sacred Keith as you can see in this KOmmie THREAD, "DISGUSTED WITH RANDI RHODES ARE YOU?" as well as this DUmmie THREAD, "geez, randi going off on keith olbermann," and this THREAD, "Randi Rhodes lost it on air today...." So let us now watch both KOmmies and DUmmies attack Randi Rhodes in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, suddenly thirsty for at least a dozen Ketel Ones, is in the [brackets]:


["Amused" would be a more accurate word.]

I know this brief but I feel compelled to get a sense of this domain regarding her behavior today on her show. She spent the whole three hours tearing down last night's Countdown on MSNBC devoted to a one-hour "special comment" by Keith Olbermann.

[Three whole hours! I MUST hear that audio. Anyone out there have a link?]

She railed on her radio show today that the one-hour commentary by Keith Olbermann last night as elitist and unintelligible. Now while I can understand she may have missed the point. Olbermann framed the health care issue as life and death and that many of us are fortunate to have our heath care while many thousands die each year simply because they do not. Ms. Rhodes an alleged progressive might as well have been working for WellPoint, Cigna, or any one of the other insurance giants for all the good she did today to advance reform.

[Did Randi's insurance policy cover her attack by 14 Ketel Ones on the streets of New York? Now on to the other KOmmies...]

I stopped listening to her a long time ago. She is just annoying, repetitve and shrill.

[She sounds like a carbon copy of Keith Olbermann.]

Randi Rhodes? This is the pot calling the kettle black.

[In Randi's case, it is the pot calling the Ketel One black.]

It hurt to hear it. But, like witnessing a car wreck, I loyally listened the entire 3 hrs

[And knowing Randi, the cause of that car wreck was DUI.]

I seriously doubt that her opinion will get much mention in the wider world.

[It's getting mentioned in the DUmmie FUnnies.]

I think that she's jealous. She's been doing her schtick for a long time and is good at what she does (normally, imo). She's had a topsy-turvey last year or two, and has persevered; however, she's not as "famous", if you will, as Ed Schultz and Keith. Hence, her very own ego was bruised.

[Hey! I'm doing my best to keep Randi in the limelight. After all I helped kick off her national career when she was confined to a low power West Palm Beach station.]

When I used to listen she would often refer to the fact that

1. Keith gets so much of his information from her show and never credits her and

2. he never has asked her to be on the show and

3. he's really egotistical a bully and is not very nice.

[What does it say about you if you think a maniac is stealing your material?]

I was shocked when she called him out for being "all ego". She's the self-professed "Goddess of Radio"!

["Queen of Ketel One."]

I might disagree with her on Keith Olbermann, but Olbermann owes his current career to Rhodes's leadership in broadcasting.

[Keith stole her NUtty act and got himself a gig on MSDNC.]

Randi did not pave the way for him! Gosh before AAR, she was an unknown outside of lower Florida.

[And guess who brought her to the attention of the outside world. Psst! Look here. Look here. Now on to the DUmmies...]

geez, randi going off on keith olbermann.

[That sounds vaguely kinky.]

basically, she feels he wasted an hour, and she would have done a better job.

[Randi thinks she can be a better NUtcase than Keith.]

randi seems to be upset that keith never acknowledges her...

[...and given her credit for making him the NUtcase that he is.]

I have heard randi complain that Keith steals all of her material.

[That NUtcase is stealing my material! That's why he sounds so NUts!]

Once I remember her bringing up the types of women Keith dates....and how she isn't his 'type.'

[Keith doesn't like burnt out bar hags? And now to the second DUmmie thread...]

Randi Rhodes lost it on air today....

[Her lunch? Too many Ketel Ones will do that to you.]

This is the woman who at one point, long ago, said that Keith Olbermann stole her material.Today, she raved for three hours about his special comment last night, saying dozens of times what an ego he has. She also took credit for the success of Keith and MSNBC. Later in the show she said that she, Randi, has no ego.

[When you're the last bar hag sitting alone at the 3 AM closing time, it does tend to diminish your ego.]

Hey, PJ-

Is there a reason you still have "Little Green Footballs" linked in the sidebar? You might be too busy to know it, but Sir Charles has pretty much gone off the deep end these past few months.

"gone off the deep end" is putting it mildly. Chaz has taken the proverbial cordless bungee jump into the abyss of bad ideas. He's become everything he opposed five years ago. He's banned everyone who disagrees with his new agenda, including me. Sad.

Am I to understand that the apparently fiery Ms. Rhodes is a dipso? Shocking if true. Other than the grievous attack she suffered at the hand of a mysterious stranger some time ago I'd never before heard of her. Apparently she has recovered and is again the air (I assume). Is that correct? Although she is an unknown to me anyone that prongs the execrable Herr Olbermann is my kind of gal. I think.

What a bunch of gangrape JERKS you all are. Randi Rhodes has done a MASSIVE amount of good for progressive politics, and just because she gets a bit over the top on an issue, YOU CLOWNS are ready to throw her to the wolves.

You are ALL acting JUST LIKE Rush Limbaugh!

Why's that, kirk? Explain the rift. Bet you can't.

More accurately, you won't.

Sir Charles got off the bus when he smelled racism. Hmmmm. The Little Green Footballs guy. And he's getting shit because he's got some issues with the white supremacy psychopaths. But you, kirk, don't.

And you think he's fucked up.

Wrong, as usual. Charles has got issues with everyone and anyone who disagrees with matter
the subject at hand. Open your dissenting mouth and and he bans you. It's his blog so he can do as he pleases, but don't make him into a martyr for racial justice.

He didn't smell racism, he smelled cash.

And this never happens anywhere else. Ever tried to comment on Malkin's site?

Fuck, elrond. Welcome to the club. You are talking to the king of getting banned at right-wing sites. I got banned at LGF's years ago.

However, you did not address the reason you dumb shit-faced assholes don't like him anymore. It's because he got pissed off about Robert Stacy McCain.

Maybe one of you brave warriors could step up and defend this asshole, McCain.

How bout you, Kirk?

Any of you douche bags. Let's hear why Charles is so fucking crazy about disputing Robert Stacy McCain.

I, troglaman, would love this argument. I'll defend Charles, though I hate the motherfucker, and I'll win it. Every time. Like the ACLU did with Rush.

Charles is right. McCain's a psychopath. The perception that Charles has fallen off the bus is you're problem, elrond. Because he hasn't. You have.

You ignorant twat, I was banned from LGF two years ago, before Chaz discovered the evils of racism, creationism, global warming, people with different opinions and Sarah Palin.

He's taken LGF and rotated it 180 degrees from what it was four years ago. It's no wonder many hundreds of long time fans and posters protested and were promptly banned. I know many of them and they are, in the main, thoughtful, intelligent people.

It's sad, but OTOH there's been a substantial LFG diaspora, with former posters setting up their own blogs and continuing the dialogue the Chaz cut short.

BTW, I was banned from the Democratic Underground four years ago. Left wing blogs are more intolerant than right wing blogs (e.g., just look at you spewing beer fueled venom on this blog without interruption).

Yup. I fucking refuse to go to LGF. The fucker has gone over the edge.

Well, I actually did have to see how far up Chuckle's ass Killgore Trout had gone. He can actually see the pyloric sphincter.

Unfortunately, I agree with The Syphilitic Chimp about McCain. The fucker needs meds.

So I gather McCain is fine with you jerk-offs. Do I, troglaman, understand that correctly?

Anyone want to tell me he's not a flaming racist dumbshit?

It's a loaded question because I can prove again and again he is. You can too.

So, call me crazy, but Robert Stacy McCain is a racist gasbag. Which is what CJ said. And yet there's something wrong with that perception? Even though there isn't? You all just can't handle the truth. Even from one of your own. CJ's ahead of the game. Any of you not getting that are knuckle-dragging neanderthals.

Yes, hes so "fine with us" that we came out and voted for a RINO like McCain in droves and he was elected in a landslide. Oh, wait...

I'm sorry, since sarcasm is lost on you, I'll answer clearly. No, you don't understand that correctly. But why should you start now?

I don't like McCain, I never have. Nevertheless, bring on your "McCain is a racist" information that somehow eluded the unrelenting Obama/Hillary/Media campaign machine that continues to this day.

You're confusing McCains.


As noted, I got kicked out of LGF two years ago and have moved on with my exciting intellectual life(only to get stuck arguing with a dickhead like you). CJ is right about McCain, but that doesn't mean he's right about anything else. And that's all I have to say about Chaz.

So what? CJ started taking loads of shit when he spoke out about what a dumbfuck racist Robert Stacy McCain is. CJ, the jackass, has been suspect ever since.

McCain is a fucking racist. So why is it that when CJ says it he becomes somehow deluded? He all of a sudden get's turned around 180 degrees?

Did it ever occur to any of you retards that McCain is ACTUALLY a racist? If so, then CJ is only stating the obvious. And if you have a problem with it then ...fuck're a racist too. It's just as obvious. And I'd love to see just one of you free-thinking, drunken doorknobs defend McCain (but it won't happen 'cause you're all chickenshit).

Should CJ not have a problem with RS McCain? That's the question. Fuck the rest. Should CJ NOT have a problem with RS McCain? That's a yes or no.


CJ has a little problem with C.O.R.N.Y too ( He called it 'crazy'. Dirty traitor.

I did't get banned for being racist or a creationist or a supporter of John McCain (I'm none of the three). I was banned for objecting to a mass banning of dissidents (for lack of a better word) some years ago. Chaz's problems began long before Robert McCain appeared on the LGF radar screen. Robert McCain is strictly a sideshow.

People who were regulars on LGF since it founding have been dumped, all that's left is the ass kissers and toadies.

But, as I said, it's Chaz's blog and he can run it as he sees fit; I don't bother with it anymore, there's plenty else out there.

I don't think so. CJ's troubles started with his denunciation of Robert McCain. He got a load of shit about it.

This was a precursor of things to come. The whack jobs have taken over. It's a huge problem for you guys. Guys like Beck and Limbaugh are fucking nuts. Michelle Bachman, Palin...I, troglaman, could go on and on. They're never right. Ever. That fact has caught up with America. The persecution (hope I'm using the term correctly) of CJ was a notable event. A shift. And it was all about Robert McCain. By the way, Robert McCain won that battle. Why would that be, elrond?

Come on, CJ's problems began long before Robert McCain was a blip on the Internet. It was the year after the 2004 election that Chaz started his wild swing to port, shedding old time posters (including me) along the way. Many were banned, many just left, but it had nothing to do with Robert McCain---who didn't become an issue until this year. LGF has become a pyscho lab, no humor, no dissent, no questioning The Leader.

BTW, our whack jobs are on the Internet or talk radio; your whack jobs are White House "czars" or Congressmen/women.

For a good laugh go to Google and enter "Race Detective".
