THE ABSURD TIMES
This is a tricky issue for me. I do like Air-America, but think they act like Nazis (or corporate Amerika) when they suspended radio host Randi Rhodes for the bit attatched above. I tried to post it as a video to show that it happened at a nightclum, not on the job, but it was over 12 MB and the sound isn't very good. Even this version, edited for sound, isn't very clear -- you may have to run your equalizer flat to really hear it. Essentially, she is doing standup, long straight hair with bangs, kinda buck teeth, and really having fun. You really need to hear the entire clip before you decide anything, but it seems to me entirely within the scope of her rights as she did not use these particular words on the air or as part of her job.
