We do have a "feminist" Don Imus

During the mostly good keynote by Helen Thomas at WAM!, she mused how we need a woman Don Imus. Well lookie, we do!

New York - Air America has suspended on-air host Randi Rhodes for making inappropriate statements about prominent figures, including Senator Hillary Clinton, at a recent public appearance on behalf of Air America in San Francisco which was sponsored by an Air America affiliate station.

"Air America encourages strong opinions about public affairs but does not condone such abusive, ad hominem language by our Hosts," said chair Charlie Kireker.

Melissa at Shakes is reporting that Randi Rhodes called Hillary a whore and a bitch...And I doubt in the same way that Tina fey would use it. Lovely.

I think I know what Helen Thomas meant...or at least I hope she meant. That women need a radio talk show host who can spew what ever is on her mind. Of course, she failed to think that Don Imus = racist misogynist. And seriously, we don't need someone claiming the label of feminist who does that. We have enough inner politics and PR issues.
