The Right Wing Hate Machine

This story keeps evolving. After Air America host Jon Elliot jumped to the conclusion that Randi Rhodes was assaulted and immediately blamed "the right wing hate machine" it was revealed that Ms. Rhodes merely fell down and was not assaulted at all. So Mr. Elliot apologized but used the same words.

I shouldn't have speculated based on hearsay that Randi Rhodes had been mugged and that it may have been an attack from a right wing hate machine. I apologize for jumping to conclusions based on an emotional reaction. (Emphasis added).

If it was an assault, wouldn't it have had to have been a person? I mean does Mr. Elliot think that the Republicans have robots which obey their every evil wish?

I can't vouch for the accuracy of this report at Ace of Spades but it gives off a strong whiff of plausibility.

Randi Rhodes was no more assaulted by a right-wing fanatic on Monday than Dick Cheney was. She, in fact, fell down and injured her teeth outside of a Midtown Irish bar at around 6 o'clock Sunday evening after downing about fourteen Ketel One Bloody Marys. She was abusive to the barstaff and generally gross, crass, loud, and pretentious. I genuinely hope she has a speedy recovery. I never would've disclosed this (I believe that anyone should feel free to hang out at Irish pubs at any time and not be concerned about someone publishing their behavior) if Air America hadn't grossly interpreted a drunken indiscretion and allowed it to be morphed into some bullish rhetoric on air. Whatever journalistic integrity the station may have ever had is now completely compromised. The manipulation of the public diminishes any cause, whether just or fabricated.

When the left accuses the right of hate, all I can think of is projection. Beam in your eye, bro.


Here is a good joke...

Ted Kennedy walks out of an Irish Bar.........

Rhandi better come clean with anything, if the bar story is true, lest she be outed by the right wing hate machine, that lurks outside Midtown Irish Bars with tripping wires and cameras.

LOL !!!
I mean does Mr. Elliot think that the Republicans have robots which obey their every evil wish?


But in all serious, I believe he does think that.
Mark, odds are Rhodes keeps with the I don't know what happened, thanks for your support, and explains not a thing. I would like to see her credit card purchases for that day but that shouldn't happen.
Mike, Thanks, I guess. I never know when you're serious or just being ironic. Good comment either way.
