Air America Host Blames Blackwater for Fires
Stupid news isn't confined to Washington, D.C. today. Air America unhinged host Randi Rhodes, who last week was embroiled in a controversy over a fall she took after a night of drinking and trying to blame right wing thugs for the incident, now gives us the benefit of her paranoid rantings about who is to blame for the California wildfires:
And you know, every time I look for it what comes up, believe it or not, is that Blackwater wants to move to San Diego and build this giant complex in San Diego right where most of the evacuations are taking place and you know. You just know wherever there is fire, this administration will be out there doing what it does best and that is fanning the flames, you know. It just spooks me, I can’t explain to you how creepy this whole thing is that you know, you’ve got these fires. Some of them are thought to be the work of arsonists and in the same breath you’ve got a community that’s on fire that just recently protested Blackwater West. Just recently said no to Blackwater and apparently you don’t do that. I mean, I don’t even know what to think. You know, nobody is saying Blackwater set the fires, that is nobody that doesn’t want their house burned down. Not only is Blackwater to blame for the fires but if you dare raise the question, your house will be burned down too.
Rhodes also famously wished the president to be assassinated at one point. But at that time, she said she was "only joking."
I wonder what the residents of Southern California think of her sense of humor today?
