Randi Rhodes: I Am Sorry

It’s 4/20, ya bastids!

Do something nice for a stoner today—remind them that it’s 4/20, because they’re not going to remember that until tomorrow. It’s not like anyone celebrating 4/20 does anything today that they don’t do every day. As a holiday, it’s kind of like Thanksgiving would be for people who eat turkey and cranberries all the time.

Speaking of apparently stoned decisions, George Zimmerman has been granted bail. Because some of the details are still being worked out, Zimmerman won’t be released today. So if you live in Florida, it’s still safe to go out... even with a hoodie. In court today, Zimmerman came face-to-face with Trayvon’s parents for the first time. He told them “I wanted to say I am sorry for the loss of your son.” That’s the kind of thing that friends of the family say. The killer of their son really should phrase it differently.

Ted Nugent had his meeting with the Secret Service, which he described as a “Good, solid, professional meeting.” Well it’s nice to know that it didn’t do any damage to the delusional bubble you live in, Ted. Ted said he was just speaking figuratively in his comments about the President. He said “Metaphors needn’t be explained to educated people.” Yes, Ted… but you never speak to educated people. Your “metaphors” were being spoken to a bunch of violent dimwits who wouldn’t know a metaphor from a pinafore.

Ted’s rant against the Commander-in-Chief cost him a gig at the military base at Fort Knox. Time to book some more gun shows, Ted. The original line-up was Nugent, REO Speedwagon, and Styx. The military may still be a huge part of this country’s spending, but it seems their entertainment budget isn’t what it used to be. A line-up of Nugent, REO Speedwagon, and Styx tells you that, either the concert planner was on a severe budget, or it is 1978.

Finally, the New York Daily news has published photos of the Columbian prostitute at the center of the Secret Service scandal. Now we have a face to connect to this story. But it’s going to take most guys who see these pictures a while to realize that she has a face.
