Fair on Whoopi but Foul on Randi Rhodes...

If you visit there are two video clips that have gotten quite a bit of attention in the blogosphere. One is where Whoopi Goldberg asks John McCain if she has to worry about being a slave again. Some have tried to suggest that this was a valid constitutional question, but it's hard to argue that this wasn't an over the top scenario. I personally call this one fair to criticize Whoopi on though some have gone too far.

Then...Randi Rhodes of Air America makes a statement about Sarah Palin that some have suggested implies she thinks that Palin would sleep with teenage boys.

I'm having a hard time making the jump to that conclusion considering the audio that's been shared. If she said something prior to that or after that, that would be one thing but in the context of what was provided? That accusation to me was over the top as well. I personally feel this one would qualify as a foul, meaning it's not fair to make this one an issue, and some have gone too far in their commentary directed at Rhodes as well.

Want to judge for yourself? The two videos are below...
