Is Randi Rhodes "the Rush Limbaugh of the Lieberman set"?

Shockingly, that's what Chris Clarke said back in January:
In the last week, I've heard her:

1) shout down and interrupt and talk over people who call in if she thinks they're disagreeing with her (even if they're not);
2) slam illegal immigrants for depressing wages for "real Americans,"

...This person is no progressive. She's not even a liberal. She's the Rush Limbaugh of the Lieberman set. I'll be restricting my listening to Al and Janeane and, well, anyone else but Rhodes from now on. What a putz.
As if that wasn't enough, back in April the same author posted "More on Randi Rhodes" (and I suppose you can read that title phonetically.)

On the downside, Clarke:
...Co-founded Pacifica Radio environmental news show Terra Verde with Pratap Chatterjee... Joined staff of Earth Island Journal... Joined staff of verde.com in 2000. Set up largest environmental journalism news staff in world history... Writing published in periodicals such as Counterpunch, Revolutionary Worker, San Francisco Examiner, East Bay Monthly, East Bay Express, Jidaijin, New Internationalist...
Of course, on the upside, someone who has been published in those fine journals gives his stamp of approval to Al Franken and Janeane Garofalo.

That "resume" you quote from is written kinda tongue-in-cheek, so I'll point out that I do not by any stretch endorse the aims or programs of the people who put out the Revolutionary Worker. About ten years ago they asked me if they could reprint something I wrote and I said "whatever."

It's odd that you'd bold New Internationalist as well: it's quite a good magazine. (Unless your objection is to left politics in general, in which case you forgot to bold Counterpunch and Earth Island Journal.)
