Nurse Hillary For President–Randi Rhodes Suspended from Air America

Paul Slansky, who’s much too clever to be writing for free at the Huffington Post, points out that Hillary’s pop culture references are now and forever will be, older than dirt. One of his quotes from the future:


The way some of you people talk about her, you’d think she was Nurse Ratched.

–A red-faced Bill Clinton complaining to reporters about coverage of his wife’s campaign, April 10

The Nurse Ratched comparison has been dogging the former First Lady for decades, as Media Matters found out last winter.

Air America host and stand-up Randi Rhodes, however, called Clinton (and “happy to be back in the news” Geraldine Ferraro) “fucking whores” and promptly got suspended. Ferraro wants her to be fired, like Don Imus.
