The Patriot Post is getting livelier these days. Example: this photo accompanies an item about the Harpy’s departure from the front row in the White House briefing room. What d’ya say we get rid of the whining “gonna kick some ass” harpy in the White House Oval Office too?
The death of a “journalist”: “Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine. Remember, these people [the Palestinians] are occupied and it’s their land and it’s not Germany and it’s not Poland. … They should go home. … [To] Poland. Germany. And America and everywhere else.” —former White House press corpse reporter Helen Thomas, who retired from Hearse Newspapers in the wake of her unbelievably idiotic comments were caught on video during a Jewish Heritage Celebration held at the White House on May 27.
Too late for fake apologies: “I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.” –the now-retired Helen Thomas.
The backup singers: “Helen Thomas has broken down many barriers for women…. She has a lifelong achievement … in journalism. Should that count for anything?” –CNN’s Don Lemon
“I think you cut her slack at 89. … Her career shouldn’t be defined at what she said at 89. I would hate for this to be the lead in her obituary 10 years from now.” –MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough
Blame Bush: “[T]he truth is, that right now we have precisely the regulatory system that the Bush-Cheney administration wanted. Full of loopholes, full of cronies and lobbyists filling the very agencies they’re supposed to be overseeing the industry. … It is absolutely a thousand percent Bush-Cheney’s fault.” –Huffington Post’s Arianna Huffington on the oil spill.
Female chauvinism: “And it is men — not to be too gender specific here — but there, there is a male factor here. I’ve we seen it in our own recent history. What is it about testosterone that gets us into war?” –NBC’s Andrea Mitchell.
