...or something like that. Actually, no one seems quite sure exactly what he said.

So what's going on at WRKO? They've pulled talk host John DePetro for saying something rude about Green-Rainbow candidate Grace Ross. Apparently he referred to her weight and her sexual preferences [shudder] in a derogatory manner. This is news? A talk show guy behaving in a somewhat churlish manner?

That's it? When there's so much more to recommend her?

What does RKO want? Chris Lydon?

The Globe has the Caspar Milqetoast description, but rival talk host Michael Graham tells it like it is: The REAL Grace Ross Controversy

...As regular listeners know, I have refused to even say Ms. Ross's name on the air or discuss her candidacy in any way. It has nothing to do with her sexuality (who cares that she's a lesbian?) or her size (who cares that she is overweight?)

It has everything to do with her horrific politics. What should concern people is that she is openly anti-Semitic.

Until coming to Massachusetts, I'd never seen a televised debate featuring a candidate for a major office who attended pro-Hezbollah rallies. Or a candidate who went to memorial services commemorating the terrorist murderers of Black September.

Grace Ross's party, the GRP, does not believe Israel has the right to exist. In fact, their website labels Israel as an area "referred to by some people as Israel, the West Bank and Gaza."

No wonder Ms. Ross supports the complete divestiture of all American assets from Israel. She believes the victims of the suicide bombers and Hezbollah missiles are the REAL terrorists.

Here's my question: Who cares whether or not she needs Jenny Craig? She supports people who murder Jews! Hello--isn't that a significant political issue?...

[the rest!]

Michael, Michael, Michael...not in Massachusetts. Telling the TRUTH about Grace Ross and her party wouldn't be...nice. And here in Massachusetts, we'd much rather gloss the real issues and be nice than tell it like it is.

Oh, she's got crappy teeth, too.

Update: Hub Politics doesn't see the big deal either, and notes that DePetro has been fired.

Have a look at exactly what Ms.Grace Ross stands for Unbelievable

This candidate is a a joke.
Love the use of the by line 'credible sources' that's a great one to use when you dont actually have a source and would rather sit on your lazy Fat ars* and express your pov as someone else's credible 'source'.

"Syme: It's a beautiful thing, the destruction of words. You wouldn't have seen the [Newspeak] Dictionary 10th edition, would you Smith? It's that thick. [illustrates thickness with fingers] The 11th Edition will be that [narrows fingers] thick. Winston Smith: So, The Revolution will be complete when the language is perfect? Syme: The secret is to move from translation, to direct thought, to automatic response. No need for self-discipline. Language coming from here [the larynx], not from here [the brain]" -1984 (film)
