Randi Rhodes "comedy": Hillary, Ferraro are "whores"

[UPDATES BELOW]

Air America Radio host Randi Rhodes is under attack by pro-Clintonian forces after calling Hillary Clinton and Geraldine Ferraro "whores". She even called Hillary a "big f*cking whore" and said that Ferraro turned out to be a "David Duke in drag". This was during some sort of "comedy" stand-up performace somewhere and not on her radio show. "Liberals" (reportedly under the command of Gen. Lanny Davis) weigh in here.

Whether Rhodes will face any repurcussions from her performance is not yet known. However, let me suggest taking a buddy along the next time she goes to an Irish bar. The Clintons have a history.

UPDATE: Rhodes has been suspended, per AAR chair Charlie Kireker (link):

"Air America encourages strong opinions about public affairs but does not condone such abusive, ad hominem language by our Hosts."

The natives are restless on the thread announcing that perennial also ran Sam Seder will be filling in for her, claiming that she did nothing wrong and that the Clintons strongarmed AAR into aquiescence.

Meanwhile, graphic artists have been brought in to temporarily remove her from the site's graphics. She is reportedly jetting to AAR's Morozniy Zhop, Siberia, outlet to fulfill the terms of her rehabilitation agreement.

UPDATE 2: The suspension is indefinite, per this. That will also give them time to "to gauge public reaction". Here's a hint: if they hadn't suspended her, no one would have ever heard of her.

And, per this:

Understandably, Rhodes is stunned and angry. About her employers she told me: "They are in breach of my contract and have damaged my hard won excellent reputation in the broadcast industry..." Rhodes added she received thank you letters from representatives of Air America, the San Francisco affiliate and sponsors praising her for the performance that now has her in hot water.
