Unless Karl Rove secretly trained her dog, it looks like Randi Rhodes simply fell:
On Sunday evening, October 14, Air America host Randi Rhodes experienced an unfortunate incident hindering her from hosting her show. The reports of a presumed hate crime are unfounded. Ms. Rhodes looks forward to being back on the air on Thursday.
All the hysterical over-reactions about right wing hit jobs should now stop. And look, folks, these hysterical snap judgements are no more charming coming from the left than they are from the right (BUT THEY GO TO PRIVATE SCHOOL AND LIVE IN A MANSION), and actually do a disservice to the work folks like Dave Neiwert and the SPLC do documenting actual hate crimes. I guarantee that, in the future, a real crime will take place, and it will be snidely dismissed with a reference to this Randi Rhodes non-event.
And if you can’t understand how unhinged you look when a guy whose trademark is ‘Hot Air and Ill-Informed Banter’ feels it necessary to tell you to calm down, all is lost.
