Reports are just now coming in about a mutiny aboard the first Air America Radio Cruise (airamericacruise.com). While many people thought that site was just an elaborate hoax, it was an actual cruise featuring famous Air America personalities such as Randi Rhodes and, ... er, well it also featured Cenk Uygur, Jon Elliott, Lionel, Rachel Maddow, Thom Hartmann, Paul Krugman, Richard Greene, and Mark Green.
The foreshadows of doom began to fall when the 53 people who signed up for the cruise realized that others on the ship were... normals. In fact, due to underbooking Holland America Line was forced to run advertisements on the Rush Limbaugh show, offering cabins at a steep discount.
Then, on the night of February 24, while still steaming in international waters towards Cabo San Lucas, Randi Rhodes - who "hadn't eaten all day" - stumbled onto deck and realized that now was her moment to push for the people's revolution. While a feckless Mark Green tried to dissuade her, she soon began a chant demanding verandahs for all passengers, not just those lucky few who'd paid thousands of dollars. When the Captain was unable to meet her demands, she hit him with a nearby bottle of Guiness Stout (which she hadn't been drinking but was just lying nearby for some reason) and seized control of the vessel. They are now reportedly steaming towards either Cuba, Venezuela, or Albania. OK, now you do better.
