He tangled with the wrong lady today. Where has this woman been hiding all this time? Am I the only person on the planet who had never heard of Randi Rhodes before? I listened to nearly her entire show on Air America Radio this afternoon (she's 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm, central time, in Chicago 950 AM dial) while completing the sweater, which normally would be the headline at this hour. She was wonderful, utterly riveting the entire time.
But, oh, my! Was it wonderful to hear her turn Ralph Nader to such jelly such that he hung up on her. He sounded so arrogant, and had obviously expected a typical media sweetie-pie sweetheart-type, and worse, he made no sense whatsoever. It was very, very creepy.
Keep the image of Nader from the 50s and 60s in your head, folks, where he was effective and true, then vote for Kerry.
I even tucked in all the stray ends on The Sweater while listening, but didn't get out to the store to buy buttons.
There's something haiku-like about that last statement. Hmmm....
