Helen Thomas retires

The Hill: Helen Thomas announced Monday that "she is retiring, effective immediately," according to a statement from Hearst newspapers.
Her decision comes after her controversial remarks about Israel hit the blogosphere. She later apologized for her comments, saying she "deeply regretted" making them.

Well it looks like old Helen Thomas has finally written a check that her butt couldn’t cash. Pressure for her resignation came in hot and heavy after her now famous YouTube moment.

After parroting the Hamas line, calls for Thomas’ resignation came in from everywhere.  Michele Bachman and Ari Fleischer minced no words in calling for her dismissal. 
Bachmann: Once again the liberal media has shown its true colors! The White House media dinosaur, also known as Helen Thomas has called on Jews to leave Israel and move back to Poland and Germany. This anti-Semitic sentiment has no place in our public discourse. I call upon her employer, Heart Corporation to dismiss her at once! The White House needs to revoke her press credentials immediately.
Her apology is not sufficient, considering her many previous negative sentiments against Israel. Her language is offensive, vulgar and intolerant. 
Fleischer:"She should lose her job over this," Fleischer said in an email. "As someone who is Jewish, and as someone who worked with her and used to like her, I find this appalling."
"She is advocating religious cleansing. How can Hearst stand by her? If a journalist, or a columnist, said the same thing about blacks or Hispanics, they would already have lost their jobs."
Helen’s Thomas’ apology wasn’t enough to calm the calls for her resignation and rightfully so. Thomas has been a long time hard lefty pretending to be an objective journalist. Throughout the Bush administration, it was hard to tell if Thomas was a White House correspondent or a reporter working for Al Jazeera.  Now that she has put herself out to pasture, she can spend her time going to all those far left rallies where she can support illegal immigration, socialism and support Hamas all day long.

Don’t let the door catch your tail on the way out Helen!

There's nothing as ugly as a liberal who has been given the opportunity to tell you what they REALLY believe.

Back in the day, we had Helen Thomas and her still living husband to a dinner party at our house. She drank about six or seven Dewar's on the rocks and told me wife, who is Greek Orthodox, that she too was Greek Orthodox, but "I'm not religious." Duh, you could have fooled us. For such a petite person to knock back a third of a bottle of high-test Scotch was something to see. Her husband died about a year later and after that her professionalism deteriorated. As an opinion columnist, she shouldn't have kept the White House Press Deanship, for what it's worth. With Obama, the WH Press Corps has been totally marginalized, much to the chagrin of these true-believing Kool-Aid quaffing Obamatrons. I guess he thinks you should keep pets out of the way as much as possible. And stenographers really are at the bottom of the media totem pole.

If Helen Thomas was General McChrystal, her ''retirement'' would be called a ''resignation''..

LOL, got'ta love the ''word game'' they play when determining what public image they want displayed..They do this to win the battle ''in the hearts and minds'' of the people, because by now they know they can't win this, on a battlefield.. This is also great example manufactured consent by ''guiding'' our minds, and thoughts, into thinking, whatever the hell they want us to..It is much easier to take all our rights, and responsibility we have to our self, if we support what is being done..
