Randi Rhodes is screwing us by taking days off.
I love Randi, but:

This is exactly what she did when she was broadcasting in Palm Beach County. She bitches about Bush taking vacations in Crawford, but I've never heard any other radio personality take as much time off as Randi.

And here's my problem with that: The right wing has 99% of radio time compared to our 1%. If she's going to take time off, she should at least have a guest replacement (someone like Lynn Samuels perhaps?) who can keep people from changing the station.

In Palm Beach County, Randi used to brag about how many days she managed to take off. Well, wake the fuck up, Randi. I've always been a big fan, but my patience is wearing thin. We need every instant of air time we can get to counter THEM. And reruns don't cut it.

GET TO WORK, OR GET OUT.

And this is coming from a devoted fan. Imagine what those who don't like you are thinking.

1. Lynn Samuels!
god, I would LOVE to hear her again!

really really miss her... actually called in to her old show and met her a couple of times in the city... <sigh>

very very good idea! Lynn should be 'on deck' to fill in!

5. Lynn Samuels??
I think she's still on Sirius Radio Left at the same time Randi is. I've tried to listen a few times and just can't do it. I hope I'm thinking of someone else. She has a deep Brooklyn accent right?

10. Yep, sounds a lot like Randi and has been known to call Bob Grant
a racist piece of shit (although she didn't use those terms on the air).

keeping herself company in solitary confinement. She is awful. Worse, she gets a lot of her info from Drudge.

39. You can Stream Lynn Samuels for Free
Edited on Wed Aug-04-04 05:54 PM by Wheaty
You can stream Lynn Samuels off the Sirius website Monday - Friday 1 pm - 3 pm ET with replays weekends 12 pm - 2 pm ET


http://sirius.com/servlet/ContentServer?pagename=Sirius...

Sirius allows non subscribers to stream much of it's in house programming via the Internet.

You'll get nothing but a looped advert and sample when she is not on the air.

But you get her live when she's on at the above times.

50. Lynn Samuels' show
was how I discovered DU.

It was shortly after 9-11, she was on WABC, and some incredibly articulate person called up to bash Bush, and mentioned this site. I was so hungry to find people as alarmed and outraged as I was. So I immediately came here, and have never left.

I always wonder who that was. Was it you, nostamj??

So, I have no problem with Rhodes taking it. She is not the Leader of the Free World after all.

21. By that same reasoning....
Air America won't make any difference this election cycle. I'm sure that it is making a difference. It broadcasts in Portland, Oregon (a swing state), and I think will convince many of how important their votes are.

Every second she's not on the air, some RW asshole is getting a free ride to spew lies and hate.

I give up. I don't know how many different ways to say it.

RANDI HAS A FLORIDA HISTORY OF TAKING A LOT OF TIME OFF. I know. I live in FL.

Her voice is important. She converts people every single day. And every single vote is going to count in this election.

And trumad, how do you know what I do or don't do on behalf of Kerry? I can guarantee you, it's not whining.

42. trumad: If you're going out of of your way to piss people off,
you've succeeded.

Exactly what have you done to convert undecideds?

If you're attacking people for wasting their time answering this thread, insisting that they should be spending time working for Kerry, what are you doing wasting your time on this thread?

Is your need to win an argument so pressing that you have the desire to land on an aircraft carrier in uniform (dish towel in place) and then prance round,really THAT irresistable?

Come on. You have mouthed off on this thread like Hannity beating on some witless idiot. If you have an argument to make, Make it. Otherwise, drop it and stop trying to antagonize people with mean-spirited jabs.

Well, if I remember correctly, most of the time
Rnndi took off in Florida over the past year and a half was for trips to Washington trying to talk to Democratic Senators and Congress people about liberal radio. I guess she should never have done that?

13. Getting sick and staying home to recover is NOT a vacation
and what the hell is wrong with going home to attend the graduation of her niece. She raises that girl when Randi's sister dies of cancer, but somehow it's wrong for Randi to see the girl get her diploma.


Anyway you can also turn on Rush. He'll make it all better.

Please refer to my original post.

Instead of reruns, someone should be covering for her. I can name about half a dozen people.

When Limbaugh takes time off, there's always some right wing crazy spouting bullshit at us.

Why grant them an inch? SOMEBODY NEEDS TO COVER FOR HER.

17. I thought she did her once a month comedy thing last night too
which would explain her taking today off, but I do think they should get a substitute (Erin Hart would be good.) It would give national exposure to people who could use it.

I am really trying to understand. You bashed a woman for taking time off and then when someone says you're nitpicking you pack up the marbles you've scattered all over the floor and say you're leaving.

Maybe you should follow Randi and take some time off because you are taking things way too seriously.

30. DU'ers: READ MY ORIGINAL POSTING!!!
I LOVE RANDI.

I'm not the enemy. She's my hero. However, I've heard her gloat when she was working down here (FL) about how much she gets away with on taking time off.

What I'm proposing is a worthy replacement on her day(s) off. Perhaps my original posting was too strong in the "love it or leave it" department, but we can't grant one inch of ground to the rethugs.

And no, Randi can't win the election with her lone voice on radio. However, think back to 2000. Five hundred some odd votes difference (before it was stolen)? Don't you think Randi can swing that many votes and more? Every day between now and Nov. 2nd counts.

JEEEZ, if repthugs threw as much crap at each other as has been thrown at me, and I've thrown back at y'all on this thread, we'd win in a landslide.

End. No more replies (or whining). I'm outta here.

35. HA! You said "no more relies." What are you gonna do about it?
Just kidding. I love Randi but I do not want re-runs of a show that is supposed to be current. I do, however, like re-plays of shows late at night if I missed the earlier live show. If I want to listen to last week's Randi I'll check out her archived shows. I'd rather listen to a substitute of her choosing to cover TODAY'S news.

Thom Hartmenn is the only one that I don't mind doing re-runs because his topics tend to be more lofty and timeless.

31. I have to agree.
When I logged on to Air America today and realized they were rerunning last Friday's "Randi Rhodes Show," it annoyed the fuck out of me.

Come on, Randi. If you're going to take a day off, have your programming director arrange for a fill-in! That's what Rush Limbaugh does.

37. Gentle Reminder - Randi works a 4 hour shift
She works an extra 5 hours a week on the air during the week. And she also works alone like Malloy. So I feel that she deserves to be able to take more time off. She earns it.

And if she's ill, that could be a last minute deal. Maybe it's not so easy to get a replacement in that circumstance. But I love the idea of replacement hosts. Time to send AAR an email. Sounds like you already did that, so I'll join you in lobbying them.

38. I totally disagree with you on that.
I wish she could get a guest host maybe that will happen one day soon for planned absences. However, I have listened to her for years and she didn't take off inordinate amounts of time. She puts in 4 hours every day and it takes a lot of preperation. She has been off when she has been sick. In this last year leading up to AAR she was off quite a bit but that was because she was working on getting the show on AAR into a reality.

Finally, I point out that she is a working mother. Like many of us she needs time off to take care of family business. All of us in America, and I repeat all of us, need more time than most businesses give us to take care of family and community issues.

41. I think Jon Stewart takes too much time off--let's get him fired!
Bill Maher's "season" is only 12 weeks long! Pink slip that bastard!

wait, Krugman only writes a column or two a week. I don't think he's doing his share! hey, the Wall Street Journal has 8 guys like him! Why isn't he working 8 times as many hours a week as they are? Let's slash his tires!

GET BACK IN THE OVEN AND TAKE OFF THOSE SHOES, RANDI! I need my women to get to work or get out!

And I really don't care how much you think she bragged about taking time off. You prove yourself to be ignorant and intolerant. A devoted fan? Don't make me spew cola all over my keyboard.

(other stupid suggestions that belong in the crapper.)

Edited on Wed Aug-04-04 07:00 PM by Cyrano
Randi is in the six to seven figure pay bracket and she's not doing it for the money anymore.

We're not talking about hours here. We're talking about a public figure who has clawed her way up to where she is through tenacity, toughness, grit, and a belief in her cause.

My complaint is that, now that she's finally earned the megaphone, she's squandering it with the same habits she had in Palm Beach County.

Take the cotton out of your ears. IF SHE WANTS TO TAKE DAYS OFF, FINE. BUT ANOTHER LIBERAL TALK SHOW HOST SHOULD BE COVERING THOSE DAYS.

Hope my comments aren't too obscure for you.

47. Randi Rhodes is a complete
Bitch. She talks over her callers, hangs up on them, cuts them off and is rather rude and haughty when she does let them talk.

Personally, the longer she's gone, the longer Air America can find someone who isn't the Left-Wing answer to rude RW radio personalities like Beck, Limbaugh or Savage.

I used to be on the radio and even when people disagreed, I never act the way Rhodes does. I personally hope she's dropped and Big Ed takes her place.

I love Air America, I hate Randi Rhodes.

The only reply that is worthy or your comments is:

"Go Cheney yourselves."

You are either freepers, or people who don't get the fact that we have a "Rocky" that is willing and able to punch back at the RW lowlife bullies that have been pummeling us for years.

If you don't like what Randi has to say, go listen to Limbaugh, Hannity or O'Reilly. Assuming you're not listening to them on a regular basis already.

Sorry to be defending a "grating, obnoxious, narcissist" woman, but, hey, if you don't like it, go ask Ann Coulter to apply her wisdom and eloquence to defeating Randi's analysis.

54. I don't appreciate your comments
As far as my being a freeper, with a little research you can see I have been active on this board since 2001. Freepers don't last that long.

I have every right to criticize Ms. Rhodes without being abused by you. I do see, however, that you share a similar style. Perhaps that's why you like her so much.

55. Apologies, latebloomer. I guess I've had it with right wing attacks
and am over-sensitive to criticism from "our" side.

But we really are the side that welcomes dissent and, in this case, I abused you for dissenting.

But I would ask you to give Randi a break. She's one of the few public voices speaking up for us, regardless of how obnoxious you find her.

Again, my apologies for being judgemental.

61. I'm glad someone else said it. I completely agree.
I really, really tried to like Randi Rhodes during my Malloy withdrawal period, but she pretty much treats all her callers like shit regardless of whether they're right or left. Now that Malloy's back, it's nice to hear someone who seems to know who his friends and enemies are.

57. I love Lynn BUT
Edited on Wed Aug-04-04 09:17 PM by malatesta1137
she's a Nader supporter, even today. She sucks up to Drudge, which is a crime punishable by death in my book.

She's also against Kerry, from the stories she posts on her site, which I check a few times a day. There hasn't been one single story about Nader taking Repugnant money on her web page up to date.

PLUS!!! Randi said they don't get along, so forget it.

58. Thanks for the info. Didn't know Lynn Samuels was a Nader nut.
If she backs Nader this time around, the kindest thing I can say is, Cheney her. Never thought she'd be that stupid.

Nonetheless, the issue in this thread is Randi Rhodes and her time off.

Randi needs a liberal voice to cover for her when she's not there. Reruns suck. Which people do you think should fill in for Randi when she's worn out, pissed off, or otherwise indisposed?

59. What about Bernie Ward?
he's the most prepared and, in my opinion, the most incredibly infuriating liberal talk-show host I've ever heard.

62. Bernie Ward works 6 days per week!
Not kidding. He's on 10pm-1am M-F and hosts "God Talk" on Sunday mornings from 6-9am. He works hard, he puts in many more hours than Rush.

I swear Bernie takes about 1 week of vacation per year.

60. She'd Need Many Days Off To Screw All Of Us, No ???
Am I missing something here?

:evilgrin:

BTW - I hate the repeats too, She can have whatever time she needs, but if they are not gonna get a sub for her, at least have a "And now, back to the Best Of Randi" tag line at the end of each break.

Things are movin too fast these days to spend 15 minutes coming to the realization that your being fed 4 day old news.

I like my news fresh... just like my

Not a friggin chance, man.
