Imagine if Rush Limbaugh said this about the two Johns ticket of Kerry and Edwards in 2004.
Randi Rhodes does what she can to make her presence known in that barren wasteland known as liberal radio. Unfortunately, it usually consists of little more than bloviating inanities. (audio clip after page break)
Here, for example, is her take on GOP Senator Marco Rubio of Florida campaigning with Mitt Romney in Pennsylvania --
I guess I'll call it the, is Marco Rubio too short to stand next to Mitt Romney tour/audition? That's what it is. And you know, and the answer is yes because when they stand next to each other Marco Rubio looks like a 17-year-old. God love him. He does, he looks like a little boy. It's almost like the Batman and Robin thing that Quayle and Bush senior had going on there, it's very homoerotic, I gotta say.
Which would be a good thing, if they were liberals, but is a decidedly bad thing, seeing how they're conservatives. See how it works? Nothing to do with homosexuality. Liberals are more than willing to engage in coded homophobia to suit their purposes, followed shortly thereafter by their angry denunciations of conservatives as homophobic.
It's this kind of keen insight and lacerating wit that made Rhodes the scourge of the junior high cafeteria where, not incidentally, she still finds herself today.
Amazing how Romney and Rubio -- who've fathered nine children -- have succeeded in hiding their true nature from the public (except, of course, from Rhodes, she of the infallible gaydar). Romney, especially, going so far as to marry his high school sweetheart to maintain this decades-long ruse -- brilliant!
You may recall that Rhodes was suspended, then quit (or was fired, depending on who's telling the tale) by the now-defunct Air America Radio after describing Geraldine Ferraro and Hillary Clinton each as a "f***ing whore" at an off-the-air affiliate event in San Francisco four years ago.
