Randi Rhodes wins this week’s coveted Douchebag of the Week Award, and congratulations to her. What douchebaggy thing did Randi do, er, what uber-douchebaggy thing did she do since her show was pretty much her being a douchebag for 3 hours? Well, she displayed the sort of fighting spirit Liberals are famous for – she quit.
She didn’t just quit out of the blue, she resigned because her boss told her to apologize for remarks she made calling Hillary Clinton and Geraldine Ferraro “bitches” and “whores.” Yes, she’s a real charmer like that.
Rhodes became a victim of the same PC police that the Left has sicked on conservatives for years, and it’s a wonderful thing.
What makes Rhodes a douchebag is that all she had to do was apologize. Why get so pissy about Hillary and Geraldine? Is THAT really the line in the sand that someone wants to draw? Then she goes on Larry King and plays the paranoid conspiracy card, saying that Air America wanted to change her contract and that’s what this is all about.
No, this is about you saying something stupid, which is nothing new, but finally you said it about someone half your listener base supports, something that could harm your employer’s bottom line (in the case of Air America, it could dig the hole a little deeper) and you refusing to recognize that you work for a business that, no matter how much you hate the concept (even though you were well paid) needs to make money.
Randi Rhodes, you are a Douchebag! In a few weeks people find this post and wonder who you are, and while you won’t be gamefully employed anywhere it could possibly matter, you can always say you were April 2008’s second Douchebag of the Week.
