Randi Rhodes Suspended; Calls Hillary 'Big F---ing Whore'

Some comments are even too shocking for the hard-left managers of Air America. Brian Maloney at Radio Equalizer has a breaking story:

An unhinged tirade by Air America Radio host Randi Rhodes has led to an unprecedented suspension from the network, according to its new management and several left- wing websites. This is a breaking story with details still emerging.In a rant so salty it could make a sailor blush, Rhodes repeatedly called Hillary a "big f***ing whore", to both cheers and jeers from the audience. The afternoon drive talker was there on behalf of Air America at an event sponsored by the local affiliate.In addition, Rhodes referred to former Democrat vice presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro as a "David Duke in Drag".An unabashed Obama supporter, Rhodes has yet to address the situation on her website....In a short and cryptic statement from Air America Radio's new chairman, a vague reason for her suspension was given:
