Randi Rhodes Wishes Global Warming Would Cause Flood to Wash Out Limbaugh's Home

Don't let anyone claim that liberal talk radio show hosts don't wish for bad things to happen. On Monday's show, Randi Rhodes was giddy about the prospect of global warming causing the oceans to rise enough to engulf Rush Limbaugh's Florida home:

And so, the global warming deniers -- like Rush Limbaugh, whose house I can't wait until the ocean swells and eats his house -- and he will be the first to go because he's got the best location! He's on Palm Beach, which is nothing but a little island...a long, skinny, little sliver of billion dollars worth of -- crap! Mostly over-the-top, overdecorated, overpainted, overdone houses with silk draperies and Renaissance designs in a tropical setting...On the edge of this little silvered island with a rising, rising ocean -- he's going first, I live out west, my house is going to be the new Palm Beach and I can't wait. I can't freaking wait!

Liberal radio host Bill Press was also giddy, but about the conviction of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay in a Texas county court: "I enjoyed this so much for a couple of reasons. First of all, it's just because he is such an evil guy. What goes around comes around."
