"Crazy Freak Puma Bitch"

vastleft's picture

Found at the fan page.

To be fair, Rhodes herself was more reserved in her characterizations of Darragh Murphy, a supporter of "big fucking whore" Hillary Clinton's, than was the fan who coined the quote atop this post. Randi merely painted her thusly:

lunatic... she's nuts, there's something wrong with this girl... you crazy bitch... this freak of nature

I will say that Will Bower doesn't exactly charm me with his fantastical desire for a McCain/Clinton ticket.

Interesting, though, that Randi doesn't invoke such derogatory language for him. You'd almost think there were different and harsher standards for the way a woman is criticized. But a great progressive like Randi Rhodes wouldn't act that way, would she?

Progressives? Utilizing double standards? Not living up to principles of fairness and equality? You must be kidding! In what world would that ever happen? Next thing you'll be telling us is that a major Democratic candidate would be able to smear another with phony claims of racism and the DNC wouldn't do anything about it.

Yes, it's more than clear that she seemed to have an unhealthy fascination with Darraugh Murphy during that show, even while she and Will Bower are making near-exact points. She even goes out of her way to attribute something Will said to Darraugh and then catches herself, but doesn't seem to care when she realizes her criticism was misplaced.

You see, guys, there is not such thing as a legitimately concerned Democrat about the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2008. And, you see, the PUMAs are a freaky, bitchy group of bitter cat-ladies, so they are not to be taken seriously or reasoned with...

This has all been so incredibly bizarre.

WTF does her appearance have anything to do with the repulsiveness of her message?

Bill Clinton for First Dude!!!

I was just wondering because we haven't seen much of Ann lately.

Rhodes' stupidity, or Shusters?

I really wish just once that someone like Bower or Murphy would call Shuster on his bullshit, tell him to stop lying and shut up, and then correct everything he said that was dead wrong, one by one.

Complaining about Obama and his supporters in the face of unrelenting evilness from McCain only helps evil McCain and you'll be responsible for the end of the world if evil McCain is elected. You will be singly responsible for the end of Roe.

What other talking points am I missing?

Wow! I used to LOVE Randi Rhodes. She's really gone downhill.
But she's right, we're totally fucking nuts. Why else would we blog and raise money and go on the TV to be skewered for no compensation whatsoever? All for this crazy, insane notion that when 18 million people go to the polls, especially people in the largest states of NJ, NY, CA, MA, FL, MI, PA, OH, TX, Wv, KY etc etc, those votes should not be nullified. How completely delusional is that?

I've never listened to Will Bowers, but if he really wants a McCain/Clinton ticket, that's nuts too. At the minimum, a complete fantasy.

Like the old joke about the student's paper whose punchline is: "This isn't even wrong."

a crazy bitch as well?

Okay, I'm cool with that. Sort of like during the primary; a whole bunch of people at a feminist community I used to belong to called me all sorts of names for supporting Hillary over Obama; then I thought about what sort of names the same people called Hillary, Bill, Gloria Steinem and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, all of whom I respect much more than I respect the people doing the name-calling, and felt a whole lot better . . .

Also, agreement w/Aeryl; while I'm not sure myiq2xu was referring to Ann's appearance so much as a similarity in their rhetorical styles, Coulter comes in for a lot of sexist digs aimed at shaming her about her appearance. Despite our loathing for Coulter it makes me uncomfortable and my s.o. *furious* (though again, if not for the wig comment I'd feel comfortable saying this was more about rhetorical styles since it otherwise seemed that way).
