It’s getting wacky in the air of liberal talk radio about the BP oil spill. On the Randi Rhodes show on Monday, a female caller from Kentucky told Rhodes: “The only people who could basically benefit from all this death, and the cesspool-making down there are the oil companies. So I think they’re doing it deliberately, killing everything so that the only thing that will be worth anything down there is oil.”
Rhodes replied: “You know? That’s not bad.” She talked about a shopping mall going up in the Amazon rainforest, and added “That’s not so far off base, what you’re saying.” She then turned around and suggested Brit Hume was a “moron” for downplaying the aftermath of the oil spill on Fox News Sunday:
Brit Hume is a moron; I mean, if you -- if you ever suspected that he was a pompous ass, and it was backed up by some wild intellect that he had, you know, I spent the weekend with lots of pompous ass -- assi [plural, like octopi] – right, and they do have the intellect to back it up. So that when you see somebody who's just a pompous ass for no apparent reason, it sort of sticks out now as somebody who's just a pompous ass for no good reason with nothing to back it up.
