Apollo 4 on column of fire

Randi Rhodes’s latest dumb theory

You know Randi Rhodes is stuffing her foot into her own mouth when she says ‘Don’t you get it? Don’t you get it? Don’t you get it?’ If I had one piece of advice for her (other than to quit smoking), it would be never to say ‘Don’t you get it?’ again.

Randi thinks that Palin was chosen because she’s an idiot—that Sarah Palin is a Monica Goodling.

Making this theory even dumber is Randi’s belief that Harriet Miers was another Monica Goodling—even though we know quite well that Harriet Miers (along with Alberto Gonzales) wasn’t an ignorant child but part of Bush’s (quite effective) personal cover-up team.

Randi has been doing okay, but when she comes up with her ‘theories’ she often becomes abusive of callers who disagree. I really hope that doesn’t happen, and if Palin quits that’ll probably spare us one of these minor breakdowns.

It isn’t stupidity that comes up these sorts of dumb theories, but excessive cleverness.

Making your point with voice tone (upupdated)

Randi’s tone with the ‘Don’t you get it?!’ is getting louder.

She just defended her theory, that ‘they’ want Sarah Palin because she’s a Monica Goodling idiot, by telling us again about Harriet Miers. Never mind that ‘they’ rejected Harriet Miers like a bad transplant (after Bush appointed her for personal reasons having nothing to do with concern for ‘they’, much less the nation).

Update: But Randi now is talking to my man, Brent Budowsky. Woohoo!!!!

Upupdate: Brent just told Randi she was wrong while agreeing with her. That is, he agreed very politely about the incompetence of all these people, but then explained how this was an impulsive, reckless, typically John McCain move and that ‘they’ are terrified.

(BTW I wonder if Dick Morris is going to withdraw his claims that the stupendously wonderful Palin pick has squelched a post-convention bounce for Obama; Obama is registering some of his highest poll numbers so far. Actually Morris has been revising his posting (at http://pundits.thehill.com) and who knows what it will say by the end of today.)
