We’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to Randi Rhodes. We’ve always said she was the rudest, craziest denizen of Air America, but now it turns out she wasn’t. That honor belongs to Lionel. (Yes, just one name. Kind of like Cher, only less masculine.)
In case you thought there was nowhere to go but up after Air America, Ed Schultz points out that Lionel is of Lionel Media, a vast media conglomerate that, we assume, consists of Lionel and exists only in the mind of Lionel.
Anyway, he appeared on Schultz’ show with Republican consultant Ron Christie, an attorney and special former assistant to Vice President Dick Cheney and made both Christie and Schultz look like intellectual giants.
Christie, who remained calm and respecful throughout, finally got so annoyed with Lionel’s constant interruptions, histrionics and lunacy that he ends the interview with the words, “What a joke. I hope we never see you again.”
Schultz responds with, “Gentlemen, good to have you with us tonight. I thought it was great.”
Luckily, for the first time since the interview began, Lionel had nothing to say.
