Quote of the Day from Helen Thomas, My Favorite Liberal
I have to say, I absolutely love raging liberal journalist Helen Thomas, if for no reason other than the fact that she makes us conservatives look so darn good. Honestly, though – is this the face of a woman you want fighting on your side? If this isn’t enough reason for a guy to vote Republican…
Ok, sorry – I couldn’t help myself.
On a serious note, this bitter woman has most recently made the news for her brazen proclamation in a new HBO documentary that she stands alone as the only brave liberal voice in the media. Riiight.
Apparently her standards for what it means to be a true “liberal” are set so high above the rest as to put her in a category all on her own. According to the Washington Examiner,
Yeas & Nays got a sneak peak at Rory Kennedy’s new HBO documentary — “Thank You, Mr. President: Helen Thomas at The White House” — which premieres next month, and Thomas is asked whether most White House reporters are liberal.
“Hell no!” she responds. “I’m dying to find another liberal open their mouths. Where are they!”
I suppose when you consider the extreme rancor with which Thomas refers to the Bush administration, she really does make the Katie Couric’s and Meredith Vieira’s of the media seem like a harmless litter of puppies.
Here’s my point: Thomas’s reasoning – or lack thereof – reveals the kind of logic typically used by other prominent figures in the media who play innocent when asked about the liberal media bias. Their sense of reality must actually be skewed so far left that they genuinely believe that they are “moderates” who define what it is to be in the center. Either that, or they are just blatantly lying.
In the case of Thomas, I guess I’ll give my favorite liberal the benefit of the doubt.
In fact, I almost can’t help but agree with good old Helen when she wishes there were others out there more like her. If only there were a way to make her the face of the Democratic party, conservatives and Republicans would be a shoe-in this November.
