Tonight On The Randi Rhodes Show

TODAY WE HAVE TWO BIG JOBS
Debunk the screed of a right wing lunatic and show you that John McCain is in the pocket of Lobbyists so deeply that we don’t know if he’s loyal to American National Security interests or those of a Foreign Nation.

We’ll get help from Washington Insider Brent Budowsky and an author for The Hill who is helping John Kerry with his new website www.TruthFightsBack.com and has also gone a round or two personally with Senator McCain.

Here’s Brents’ latest article

And we’ll talk to Paul Waldman a senior fellow at Media Matters, who heads up the debunking effort on the Corsi bombast.

Jerome Corsi is a right wing lunatic.  Mary Matalin was Dick Cheney’s WH operative.  Now we are supposed to take Jerome Corsi seriously as an “author” and Mary Matalin seriously as HIS Publisher?  Jerome Corsi has called Muslims “Ragheads”,  Islam “Satanic”, Hillary Clinton a  “Fat Hog Lesbo”, John Kerry a “Communist”, Barack Obama a “drug dealer” and a person who is for “live birth abortion” ETC.

One dirty little trick the Right Wing does well – Publish a screed without fact or fact checking, publish it and BUY IT IN BULK to get it on the NY Times Bestseller list.  People aren’t reading this book.  Right wing think tanks are BUYING this book in BULK.

Giving Jerome Corsi airtime is like giving airtime to one of Charles Mansons followers.  It’s a waste of air time, but people watch.  Today we’ll talk to Media Matters who has gone through this book page by page and finds 80 lies tied to footnotes that lead to bloggers posts and right wing nut bags.  Jerome Corsi is a man who lives in New Jersey and hates PERIOD.

The Georgia Russia battle
Georgia attacked South Osettia .  Russia had a DISPROPORTIONAL response.  Russia has been pissed off since Bush decided to put Star Wars technology in The Czech Republic.

McCain is being advised by a Lobbyist named Randy Scheunemann who is a registered foreign lobbyist for Georgia.  WHO IS HIS CLIENT?  The United States Republican Nominee for President OR a Foreign Nation?
