94. Look, I'm not saying she is or isn't entertaining.
But if everyone felt she wasn't entertaining, she'd have no audience, right? Everyone would just turn off the radio, or buy a Sirius like me, and then she'd rightfully get fired. So if someone is hired to be edgy, and then their edginess is suppressed, isn't that a disservice to Randi, her right to expression, her right to do her job, and the audience that does appreciate her?

If it was Rush Limbaugh, I'd feel the same way. If it's the guy sitting next to me at the bar, I'd feel the same way. If it was you, I'd feel the same way. It's not a matter of in what context she meant whore, which is deplorable regardless, it's a matter of freedom.

Again, maybe I'm too idealistic.
