    Breaking news: Helen Thomas is retiring.

    What a pathetic way to end a long career. I didn't agree with most of what she wrote, but it's sad to see someone end her career in a public display of hateful self-destruction.

    She made a mistake and she's paying for it. I still like the old gal.

    She brought it on herself.

    You don't always have to say what you're thinking.

    She made a mistake, but she's also been a nasty piece of work for years. Still, I wish she had retired under more dignified circumstances.

    A nasty piece of work for years? WHY, because she called out government when it didn't tell the truth or when it didn't serve the interests of We, the People?

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, she criticized King George W...:eek:


    Without debate, without criticism, no Administration and no country can succeed--and no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian lawmaker Solon decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy.
    President John F. Kennedy

    Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.

    She is a nasty peace of work because she is a racist idiot, not because she is a Democrat.

    Citation needed, I should think. Racism is a pretty serious accusation.

    About time for Thomas really, the last thing she did of note, outside of having her birthday celebrated by the President (everyone just loves that picture of her and Obama, isn't it great that people love when people wish other people happy birthday?), was that video she did for Stephen Colbert a couple years ago.

    I keep saying: given the omnipotent powers Bush wields from his political grave, why isn't Obama seeking his help in Plugging The Hole?

    Why retire? She only said what Obama and his administration was thinking. Oh, wait. Did Obama throw her under the bus, too? :lol:
