Randi Rhodes Compares Her Importance To That Of Tim Russert

IRREPLACEABLE RANDI

Rhodes Sees Key Parallel Between Herself And Russert







If we didn't know better, it would be easy to believe this "Randi Rhodes" character has been nothing but a long- running stunt, a mere parody of talk radio.

At any time, the liberal talk host might reveal her true nature, while chastising listeners for being foolish enough to believe her crazy act.

Between her crazy, unhinged skits and erratic public behavior, how could she be real?


And this time, Randi has revealed a truly dark and frankly ugly corner of her personality, one where she's more important than any of us could ever imagine. Is she as irreplaceable as Tim Russert?

From Monday's show, here's the stunning transcript, followed by the clip:


RHODES (Hour Two, 30:16): Look, the thing is, it’s going to take four or five people to replace Tim Russert. It’s like you know, trying to replace me. It took like what, six people to do it, you know. You can’t replace a guy like that with one person, because a guy who asks tough questions, I mean Tim Russert was the Vice President of NBC News. He was the Washington Bureau Chief and the moderator of Meet the Press. I mean this is a guy who lived it and loved it and ate it and breathed it.

[...]

RHODES (Hour Two, 31:57) But you know to think that one person can replace Tim Russert is a silly notion. You know people like that come along you know once in a lifetime. It's like when people tried to replace me. They were like, 'oh well she just does this, she's just, you know, she's just a voice on the radio.'

And all of a sudden they found out, 'oh my God, all the crap she does.' Nobody does all that. You know the need a person to read and a person to research and a person to do this and a person to do that.

One specialist on politics, another one on the global markets and another one to talk about fathering and mothering and family issues. And that it's just, it’s gonna take a whole host of people to replace Tim Russert.”








Is Randi Rhodes for real, or have we all been taken for a ride? You be the judge.

    Hey, at least I'm not getting pissed off at her hate-spewing or her on-air kill-Bush jokes.
    That was too funny.

    Did you get all of her stuttering and stammering? Her bosses should probably should check the studio for white powder.

    SHE SLAMS GEORGE ZIMMERMAN FOR SEEING HIS FAMILLY PHYSICIAN FOR HIS BROKEN NOSE AND OTHER INJURIES. ON AND ON ABOUT WHY NOT THE HOSPITAL B/C OF THE RX DRUGS IN HIS SYSTEM AND HE OBVIOUSLY SHOULD HAVE GONE TO THE HOSPITAL LIKE ANY NORMAL PERSON.
    RANDI? DIDN'T YOU STAGGER HOME TO YOUR APARTMENT WITH YOUR FACE BROKEN AND BLEEDING A FEW YEARS AGO - NO HOSPITAL - NO POLICE REPORT?
