Randi Rhodes Suspended at Air America for ‘Hillary Is a Big F**king Whore’ Comment


Shortly after a YouTube video surfaced earlier this week of Air America host Randi Rhodes calling Hillary Clinton a "big fucking whore," the network suspended her indefinitely. "Air America encourages strong opinions about public affairs but does not condone such abusive, ad hominem language by our hosts," network honcho Charlie Kireker said in a statement (for the record, Rhodes also repeatedly called Geraldine Ferraro a "whore"). This is going to leave three hours a day of Air America hostless, and the network has not announced any replacements. This has been compared in the press to when MSNBC's David Shuster was suspended for saying that Hillary Clinton was "pimping out" her daughter, Chelsea, on the campaign trail. Except in that case, Shuster was using a common humorous colloquialism in an insensitive context. Randi Rhodes, if you watch the tape above, pretty clearly says that Hillary will have sex with you for money. And when she does, she'll haggle.
