AAR introduces 'American Afternoon', continues to sideline Sam Seder

Air America Radio has officially branded Randi Rhodes' former time slot as "American Afternoon," a program with a rotating series of guest hosts.

I guess this means that Sam Seder is not going to get his daily program back, unless at some point they decide to call it "American Afternoon with Sam Seder." But if they were going to do that, they would have already done it, instead of dumping Richard Belzer there this week, with Ron Reagan, Joy Behar, and Roseanne Barr on deck in the weeks ahead. Looking on the bright side, Ron Reagan is certainly better than Michael Reagan.

Still, I can't figure out what AAR is doing. Roseanne Barr? She's a trainwreck. They suspended Randi for making harsh, off-air comments about Hillary Clinton and Geraldine Ferraro, but they're putting in her place Roseanne Barr, who wrote this on her blog in defense of her footwear (I kid you not):

to you as$holes at the globe:

Yeah, I can't see what could possibly go wrong there. Way to elevate the discourse, guys. Who's next in line for "American Afternoon" - Andrew Dice Clay?

Sam Seder deserves more respect than this. So do we.
