Randi Rhodes and Mike Malloy Are Under Attack
The past few days Randi Rhodes and Mike Malloy have been hit with tons of phone calls from rabid Bushites, much more than normal. I have to wonder if we are hitting some sort of turning point. With the onslaught of stories finally making it to the MSM (Dr. Rice's lies being exposed, the 37 soldiers killed, the ever-rising budget deficit, etc. etc.), it seems like the Bush supporters are feeling "boxed in" and are trying to make themselves feel better by going on the attack. Perhaps the tide is finally about to turn?

1. Identical talking points from these bush cult members
Could be the same guys -- but Randi got hit with several of these calls.

40. Makes you wonder how much these people are gettting payed...
...to call Randi and Mike. It's the SAME cretins. And they sound like the same trolls who call Neil Rogers too. I wouldn't be surprised if they get checks from the same place Armstrong Williams (and the other 2) did.

BTW, Scott McCullum (sic?) is a LIAR. Yeah, Armstrong was the ONLY one...riiiiiiiiiight.

Lu Cifer, I've seen crackheads that don't lie as much as these Bush people!!!

2. Did you hear the Missouri guy?
Edited on Thu Jan-27-05 11:20 PM by XanaDUer
ON EDIT: He wasn't rabid-he actually sounded sort of unsure.

But he kept repeating Bushler talking points.

6. boy i have noticed the same thing!
as an avid listener to malloy for over 3 yrs..i agree, they are swamping the lines so real callers cant get through with legit questions, or conversation..these thugs will stop at nothing, maybe we should learn the same and call their freaking shows and stop the flow of crap , we ought to be stopping all their nut case calls and call them what they are propagandists!
the ratings of air america are going through the roof, there was even a front page story on aol tonight about it...so we either call ahead of air time and swamp the rr show and malloy shopw or we plkay the same freaking game on rush ..swamp their lines so their listeners cant get through!!

16. Why stop them? I got home last night and was able to hear
Randi's show. She had a couple of callers, and although my Sirius goes in and out, I think she dismembered a couple of them advocating that their was no torture and what we do to "those people who are trying to kill 'Mericans is okay."

Who sez? said one. The FBI, The Military Investigation, The Red Cross. she said.

Only the most hardened Freeper could have listened and not take note.

If that's the way the message has to get out there, then AAR is doing the job.

As to phoning OXyRush, dopers like him are delusional. They see things and hear things non-reality based. So why bother?

18. I agree. Mike and Randi can take care of themselves. Let 'em.
Chances are, if this is an organized Freeperfest, that the Freeps are tuning in and listening to their buddies get continually shot down in flames on national radio. It's a good, wholesome learning experience for them.

Mike Malloy handles these goons better than most of us on this board could. We should let him do his job.

35. Let Randi eat them for lunch. This is why God made her.
I haven't listened to Mike Malloy yet, but Randi?

I'd rather hear her talk to conservatives any day, because these are the people who need her most. And you know their freepie friends are listening, so maybe they will learn something.

28. Don't they have jobs?
they're probably on welfare or sponging off their parents, if they have time to sit around all day and call radio shows.

7. GOP e-mail asks for help with 'liberal media'
Since they've been caught with the propaganda shills, the GOP is now soliciting other to people to pay for their journalists-for-hire. I think I'm going to be ill.

GOP e-mail asks for help with 'liberal media'
Wednesday, January 26, 2005 Posted: 3:36 PM EST (2036 GMT)

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Republican Party is following up record fund raising for President Bush's re-election effort by asking donors to finance its efforts to get Bush's message "past the liberal media filter" to the public.

Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman sent a fund-raising e-mail Wednesday telling supporters donations are needed to help Bush advance his second-term agenda.

"The president has great goals for our country: a growing economy, strong homeland and national defense, tort and Social Security reform and affordable health care. But we need your help to get the president's message past the liberal media filter and directly to the American people," wrote Mehlman, Bush's 2004 campaign manager. Mehlman asked donors to give $25 or more.

14. After shelling out for the campaign and the inaugaral, one would think
these people would be getting sick of coughing up dough. We can hope anyway.

What, is the GOP on Welfare or something. Tell them to pick themselves up by their own boot straps.

8. They are holding up well against the attacks.
We need to email them our support. Evidently it's some organized church groups that are doing this. They can herd people together to make these calls where ordinarily most wouldn't be bothered to.

9. I think they screen the calls
They want callers that will make the show more interesting. Sometimes the callers fake out the screeners and go off on a rant and they usually hang up on them. Believe me, the RW nuts have always been calling these shows. If it seems like lately they have been getting crazies calling them it's because they want them on the show.

12. Great! That means the republicans are listening to AAR
For all those hours they wait on the phone, they have to listen to Randi and Mike beat their stupid ass dictator-wannabe into the ground.

15. this is actually a good thing....
more red meat for Randi and mike. there is nothing worse than having the phones filled with boring ditto heads. for dynamic radio you want a bunch of rabid weasels in the que.
listening to this did you not find it mesmerizing...hypnotic even?

20. This is a good thing, who needs a lefty version of "dittoheads"
These hosts can take care of themselves just fine, if they can't they shouldn't be doing that job. We should all sit back and enjoy the vicarious victories of liberal talk show hosts against ill informed conservatives.

I'd rather listen to a left wing talk show host take apart a right wing caller--especially one whose knowledge does not go beyond the GOP talking points--than listen to liberal callers telling the host how much they love them (a lefty version of megadittos) It's less boring and far more informative.

21. Lynn Samuels on Sirius Radio Left
is also getting some strange phone calls, but these are freepers with perverted sexual comments. I mean really weird. You can practically hear these guys panting and jacking off on the phone. Things must be dull in freeperland.

33. Do you think they are listening waiting for their calls to come on
or just calling a number they were given to take up our time and airspace? I don't think they care what our side has to say. I think they are trying to disrupt and mess with us. They don't believe anything we say, they are programed to ignore everything but their narrow viewpoint. Anything that doesn't match is thrown-out.

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they
fight you, then you win." -- Ghandi.

Looks like we're at the next to last stage folks.

34. So? They're better equipped to handle a debate than Rush or
any of the other RW jerkoffs. I've gotten hung up on by Hannity's screeners about a dozen times and counting....

Malloy & Randi can handle those idiots. They'll get tired of having their asses handed to them before too long and stop calling.

I didn't find anything. but if you haven't already seen this, you should check it out. It's the daily cherry picker.
