Two interesting things happened on Randi Rhodes this week . . .
She gave up on two positions . . .

First, on Thursday, she said that after we got Democrats back in office and in full control --
hopefully large majorities -- and got things straightened out ....
the next thing should be to start a third party ---
************************************************

Second, on Friday, she said that she had sat on Hillary info too long trying to "not split the party" --- and confirmed that it was Clinton campaign which called Canada on NAFTA and delivered
the "don't worry about what we're saying in Ohio and PA -- just campaign rhetoric!" ..
There were one or two other "Clinton campaign did it" reveleations ---
Randi is totally off Clinton ---

Can't blame her ---

1. Uh, check LBN a page or so back. Canada said they did not
speak to anyone in the Clinton campaign. Ya'll keep trying though.

4. Yesterday they said they did. Should I worry about CA or the news
coming out of there? They also said that it's the most attention they've gotten in 20 years. :-)

conversation/contact with Hillary or a staff member.

30. Truth is irrelevent to the received word of Obama.

5. I went back a few pages and didn't see anything . . .
give me a LINK and I'll read it ---
I did notice that Olberman seemed to be suggesting another version tonight --
didn't quite catch it.

However, what I am trying to make clear to you is that this is what Randi was reporting today ---
that it was Clinton whose staff called Canada --- and it was her message.

Additionally, Randi said that she had traced another rumor to the Clinton campaign . . .
I believe it was the one about Obama perhaps "selling drugs" --- ????

And she seemed to feel strong that she also tracked the "Obama in native dress" photo to the
Clinton campaign ---

Needless to say, most everyone is also shocked at Clinton's comments re Obama's Christianity . . .
that "she'd take him at his word" . . . !!!

Not good stuff . . .

9. You can't use KO for source on this issue.
He was the biggest promoter of the lie over extra news cycles. He should have been the "Worst Person" tonight for telling a big fat lie too many times.

Randi makes shit up. She has the same mo as Limpballs. She will tell any lie to get an audience.

The Obama native dress thing came from the National Inquirer - a couple of months ago.

The drug thing is from Obama's very own book.

McCamy Taylor has up a post up on DU tonight explaing the media's agenda on Hillary/Obama/McCain. Read it.

14. You misread my post . . .
KO seemed to be telling the story YOUR way . . .

and here you went to all the trouble of making him out to be a "liar" ---

You've got the wrong "drug thing" --
not what he admitted to in his book ---
but the RUMOR that he was "selling drugs" . . .

If you're going to do this at least try to slow down and read the post --- !!!

And, sorry, but Randi has traced them back to Clinton campaign ---
She's got the goods on ya ---

18. Okay -
I know what KO said tonight. He failed to note he was correcting his own lie. That makes him a continual liar. In the toilet for Obama until he turns on him and he will.

The drug story - three months old. Again I refer you to the McCamy Taylor post. Its in there. You need more attention then I care to give.

20. Again . . . Randi tracked the stories . . . your arguments are with her ---
This is what she reported Thurs and Fri ---

The drug story may be old --- but tracking where the "rumor" came from certainly interests me . . .
and it turns out to be Clinton campaign according to Randi.

As for KO whatever he said tonight will still bear confirmation ---

And . . . we all await it!!!

36. EEEEAAAAAYEAHHHHHH....
Randi makes shit up? Not too sure that's gonna fly, I have never caught her in a direct lie, once she did come back the next day and correct herself on one story but that was only once, and a long time ago. I think toilet boy (Flush Limbaugh) would love to catch her in lies and smear the hell out of her...


***Please never forget the criminal Fascist enablers Nanci Pelosi, Harry Reed, Steny Hoyer, Jay Rockefeller, Rahm Emanuel that continue to let the Bush crime family commit crime and destroy our constitution. "Never forget" until they are voted out of office for good!!!!!!!

37. Sure, sure; wasn't it Clinton supporters who were saying that we couldn't believe ...
... Canada's denials, 'cause now the Conservative government is just trying to cover its collective arse?

6. Randi is often wrong on the facts - always has been.
She is very bright - but very lazy.

8. And up is down --- Randi is probably one of the best informed and
best minds at work on the political scene ---
with one qualification --- on Nader --- who she just didn't get.

Randi is human, however, so I guess we're both waiting for final confirmation on all of the
stories ---

What I'm making clear is what she was reporting Thurs and Fri ---


and her giving up on "protecting the party" --- by hiding negative info about a candidate.

10. In fact, I think being so "partied up" she often didn't see the damage
that was happening with corporate control of both parties ---

she'd recite it --- she'd understand it intellectually --

but emotionally, she's always been committed to Dems ---


But . . . NOW . . .
here we are with her talking third party -- AND, telling the truth even if it divides the party!!!

Only way to go ---

24. did you look at randi's website? a link about the email coming from
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 01:34 AM by orleans
the staffer:

"Ben Smith notes that one of the people on the chain of this email is a Clinton staffer named Ryan Callanan, who received the email on November 21. It's unclear what level Callanan occupies or what exactly this means.

"Late Update: It turns out that Callanan, the Clinton staffer who was on the email chain, also condemned the smear email:

26. I saw a post from someone who went on the cruise -
it was Obama shit all day every day and the poster is a Clinton supporter. She wasn't angry, just commenting.

32. I haven't closely read all these posts . .
but . . . when Randi commented on the "Ken Starr" thing today, she included that he is "gay" . . .
Has Starr actually come out?

38. i don't know if he's come out. and according to an interesting
article that was on here (i think) this past week, gaydar might be attributed to being able to smell someone. i, for one, have never smelled ken starr so i can not really be sure one way or the other about that dickhead.

but also his fascination/obsession with Clinton's sex life seemed quite odd ---
