'Right-wing Hate Machine!!!' Uh...Never Mind

Turns out that the Air America host Jon Elliott's "right-wing, hate machine" doesn't exist. Far from being attacked by Rethuglican brownshirts, Randi Rhodes, well, fell down:
Rhodes' lawyer told the Daily News she was injured in a fall while walking her dog. He said she's not sure what happened, and only knows that she fell down and is in a lot of pain. The lawyer said Rhodes expects to be back on the air Thursday. He stressed there is no indication she was targeted or that she was the victim of a "hate crime."
Lunatics on the left taking the bait:

Think Progress
Shakespeare's Sister and previously noted notorious know-nothing
Chuck Adkins.

Update: Bitsblog has a screen cap of Chuck Adkins header for the Randi Rhodes saga. It features a headshot of Ann Coulter, a handgun, and the word "Please." A heartwarmingly liberal sentiment, thanks Chuck. Via little green footballs.

Oh, and the latest rumor, courtesy of Mr. Clark in the Jawa comments, according to a commenter at Gawker, 14 bloody marys may have had something to do with the unfortunate incident.
