AIR AMERICA’S ASSASSINATION CHIC

Assuming you’ve seen the Drudge Report flash
on the Air America skit broadcast yesterday and now apparently under investigation for its assassination overtones.

Randi Rhodes has used this rhetoric before. From May 2004:

Comparing Bush and his family to the Corleones of “Godfather” fame, Air America host Randi Rhodes reportedly unleashed this zinger during her Monday night broadcast: “Like Fredo, somebody ought to take him out fishing and phuw. ”

Rhodes then imitated the sound of a gunshot.

In “Godfather II,” Fredo Corleone is executed by brother Michael at the end of the film.

Is this her cheap, sick attempt to boost those pathetic ratings?

The MSM will no doubt follow-up with sympathetic profiles of Rhodes, as the Washington Post did last fall–check out how the writer nonchalantly mentions the Fredo/assassination skit. Now, compare that treatment with the fate of conservative talk show hosts punished or canned for controversial speech.

Update: Here’s a link to the Randi Rhodes show’s broadcasts. And here are the MP3 audio files: 1 2. (Hat tip: Wes R.)
