Rush From Rhoda

It has come to our attention that some MMM readers don't get the reference in Rush Holt's new nickname, Rush from Rhoda.

Rhoda Chodosh is the woman from whose hand Holt famously ripped a microphone during a Town Hall meeting in Marlboro last January.



Now whenever Rush sees Rhoda, at a parade or other public event, he runs the other way.

MMM apologises for the confusion.

What a crock! It was Rhoda who was trying to commandeer the podium, not the other way around. Holt was retrieving the mic from her grab - that is obvious to anyone who doesn't have a personal agenda. Now I know you won't post this but you should know by trying to perpetrate this dubious charge you are making yourself look even less credible.

The video speaks for itself. I didn't see Rhoda rip the mic from anybody's hand.

And like you don't have an agenda Baratta. PUULllleeesse!

Kathy Baratta said...

"Anonymous,"

The video speaks for itself.

Also, as I am unaffiliated with any political party the only agenda I have is the truth.

The fact that you don't sign your name proves YOU are the one with an "agenda."

Anonymous said...

The real reason for the Baratta rant is that Rhoda refuses to post on the Baratta blogs, which promote a slanted pro-Obama view.

Kathy Baratta said...

Now you're just being ridiculous. Rhoda is a hired gun. Who gives her her marching orders is beyond me but what I do know is I could care less if Rhoda posts on my site. She'll be the first to tell you that on the many occasions we have spoken on the phone I NEVER ONCE even suggested that she join my Board.

Way to show your biased ignorance AND prove I hit the sweet spot - the truth.

And yes, given the choice between Obama-Biden and McCain-Palin, I chose Obama. (Had McCain chosen his running mate wisely I could just as well have voted for him). But tell me, what the hell does that have to do with Rhoda's rant?

Kathy did you know that James madison and Alexander hamilton used fake names when they published the Federalist papers?

Mark said...

Ms. Baratta, you know not what you speak. I was there. The crowd was becoming restless because Mr. Holt was refusing to answer direct questions. Instead, he and an aide were screening questions that the audience had to place in a box on card. Rhoda started a give and take discussion with Rush. No one could here her so she went to the front where Rush handed her the microphone. When he didn't like what she was saying, he slowly moved closer to her and put his hamd on the mike and then wrested it from her.
Just the facts, ma'am.

Do you know the difference between apples and oranges? The founding fathers faced arrest, imprisonment and loss of property if not life.
I think that after the eight years of persecution Bill Clinton had to work through due to refuse like Mike Drudge, Mush Limbaugh and Bull O'Really it's already well-proven anyone can make any baseless charge they like against the government/elected officials and not face any penalty for it.

There is a major difference between an omnipotent monarch like King George and an elected president. So stop with that claptrap. The cloak of anonymity used by the Internet Terrorist Illiterati is more akin to the hoods worn by the KKK. Those are cowards behind both and most good people know it.

Kathy Baratta said...

Mark,

You're right. I wasn't there and base my opinion solely on the video that Art is so disingenuously promoting.

Also, as a retired journalist I have known Rhoda more years than we either care to remember so (tongue planted firmly in cheek) I can tell you I am more than familiar with Rhoda's "approach."

TR said...

Kathy you just showed how ignorant you are. The Federalist Papers were written long after we had already one the revolution. No one was in any danger when the federalist papers were written.

This explains why you are a liberal. No understanding of history
ROTFL

Kathy Baratta said...

TR,

Instead of ROTFL, get your ignorant self a dictionary. You'll find them on sale at Barnes and Noble. It's more than just Starbuck's coffee you see. The reason I raise this point is because it's "won" not one. You're one to talk about being ignorant, by-the-way, when you can't even write on a third-grade level.

Anyway, if you noticed, I referenced our "founding fathers" which is an obvious reference to those who rallied the revolution. I know your ego demanded I address you but you are insignificant to me and so I make the points I want to make.

Right. He tripped and fell on me. Who knew a bag full of s**t could weigh so much.

TR said...

Ms. Baratta, My slip of the fingers while typing and failure to proofread is regretable.
however it comes no where close to your ignorance of history.

It is not however, suprising. I find that most journalists while masters of word smithing are ignorant of history.

on it goes.. said...

I just love the innacurate,accusatory, and personal,nasty vitriol these libs always resort to and spew, when defending the indefensible!.. elitsts always think they know so much, when really, all they want is for their self-approved and proclaimed few,to get to rule all aspects of each of our lives: it's the unfortunate legacy of the 60's assault on the heart and soul of America and Her achievements, the decimation of public education,lack of respect for our proud history, and the rotting from the inside- out, of our moral compass as a culture, that continues to wreck this nation.. it's certainly not a couple of conservative radio entertainers and hosts who simply, by their successes, reflect the truth most clear-thinking and freedom-loving people are finally realizing, must be defended!

Kathy Baratta said...

To: On It Goes,

What does any of your hyperbolic rhetoric have to do with Art's deliberate dissembling regarding THIS particular matter? I've shown the video to many people, MOST of them registered Republicans and THEY ALL agree that Art is definitely gilding the lily with this one.

Now you all can jump and up and down like Rumplestiltskin all you want but that won't change what really happened and obvious prevarication cheapens ANY site.

yeah right1 lady you are a pathological truth disasembler.

Kathy Baratta said...

Sure. That's why I sign my name with pride and you skulk around anonymously.

Anonymous said...

Honestly I posted that anonymously because crazy people like you scare me.

Mark said...

Kathy, your actually defending Clinton? Clinton was McCarty'd by Limbaugh and O'Reilly? Do you actually believe that rubbish or are you just sying it for public dissemination. Clinton was a victim of his own arrogance, not settling with Paula Jones. If he had he would not have been dis-barred and guilty of perjury. I always said Clinton (tongue in cheek)was one of the best GOP presidents after RR. Billy adopted almost the entire GOP congress' agenda. Deny that also?

JustifiedRight.com said...

I think TR make a complete fool of Baratta here.

TR asked,

"Kathy did you know that James madison and Alexander hamilton used fake names when they published the Federalist papers?"

Not only did Kathy claim they faced arrest, but also mentioned King George in the same post.

The Revolution ended in 1783. The Federalist papers were written in 1787 and 1788.

Since Kathy's response was a direct asnwer to TR, she fails.

Nice job TR.

JustifiedRight.com said...

Kathy Baratta how do you claim in one post that you aren't affiliated with a party, while in this very thread you say this:

"I think that after the eight years of persecution Bill Clinton had to work through due to refuse like Mike Drudge, Mush Limbaugh and Bull O'Really..." (bastardizing their names shows genuine contempt)

and this


"And yes, given the choice between Obama-Biden and McCain-Palin, I chose Obama."

Not to mention your purpose here is to defend the wrong Rush.

Oh Kathy by the way - Rumelstiltskin didn't jump up and down, he tore himeself in half.

Now you've failed politics, history and literature in one thread.

Nice job, liberal.
