Randi Rhodes formerly of Air America Radio, called Hillary Clinton and Geraldine Ferraro "fucking whores" at an Air America sponsored event which wasn't aired on the radio, but she got suspended anyway from Air America. She has taken a new position at Nova M Radio. Good for her.

I disagreed with most of what Rhodes had to say on the radio in the past few months and stopped listening to her, but she still has the right to her opinion and she kept it "clean" on the radio as far as I was concerned although she seemed to be inciting some pretty radical anti-Clinton sentiment, which of course is her prerogative and I don't have to listen to it. That's why God invented the dial on my radio.

I suppose she shouldn't have used the word, "fucking" with "whore" and she could have gotten away with her sentiment at an Air America sponsored event and I can sort of understand why AA is concerned about their image. But......

"Whore" is an apt political description for many a politician though. The third definition for whore in Merriam Webster dictionary is this: 3: a venal or unscrupulous person.

A venal person according to Merriam Webster is 1: capable of being bought or obtained for money or other valuable consideration: purchasable; especially : open to corrupt influence and especially bribery : mercenary
2: originating in, characterized by, or associated with corrupt bribery

So there you go. Most politicians are "whores" by that definition or they wouldn't have chosen that career path. Probably a lot of them are 'fucking whores' like Spitzer or Vitter. I don't think Hillary is fucking whores, but maybe her husband is. I don't think she IS a fucking whore, but sure, she is a political "whore". But if we as voters eliminated all "whores" from those we get to choose from, we wouldn't have anyone to vote for. Capicé?
