Just when you thought the Left could not possibly sink any lower in their bid to smear Sarah Palin, Nova M manages to provide what hopefully will be the nadir of their efforts. Randi Rhodes of Nova M Radio told her listeners that she knows Palin’s type — the type that can’t be trusted with teen boys in the neighborhood (via Brian Maloney):
She’s the woman who shows up at the kid’s birthday party and starts opining about everything from politics to lawn care. This is the woman that knows it all. Will shout you down, will get revenge on you. That’s who she is.
She’s friends with all the teenage boys. You have to say no when your kids say, ‘can we sleep over at the Palin’s? No! NO!’
Rhodes recently offered the novel claim that John McCain got treated like a “prince” by his captors in North Vietnam. Apparently her separation from reality has accelerated with this piece of character assassination. There’s really no other term for it; she accuses Palin of being at least a latent child molester.
Even apart from that despicable accusation, the rest of Rhodes’ argument sounds strangely like projection. What does Rhodes herself do for a living? She “opines about everything from politics to lawn care”. Rhodes also acts as though she “knows it all”, including Palin’s sexual proclivities. If Rhodes finds opinion from strong women so offensive, maybe she should find another line of work. After this bit of lunacy, perhaps her employer should expedite that change.
Update: Rhodes is exclusively on Nova M, and has been for several months. She is no longer on Air America.
