Keith Olbermann: a failed MSNBC host who frequently rants and raves. Click on the link for an encyclopedia of examples.)
Janeane Garofalo: a failed actess who seems to destroy every series or movie she touches. (Click link to see the voluminous link of movies & TV series her poisonous touch has ruined.)
So when these two get together, of course hijinks ensue! From The Washington Times:
Liberal actress and political activist Janeane Garofalo, in all seriousness, said activists who attended tea parties are racists with dysfunctional brains in a recent prime-time television appearance.
“Let’s be very honest about what this is about. This is not about bashing Democrats. It’s not about taxes. They have no idea what the Boston Tea party was about. They don’t know their history at all. It’s about hating a black man in the White House,” she said on MSNBC’s “The Countdown” with Keith Olbermann Thursday evening. “This is racism straight up and is nothing but a bunch of teabagging rednecks. There is no way around that.”
Oh, how nice. She’s been reading the MSNBC Talking Points about how to slur people with sexual allusions. What a nice girl she is.
Olbermann did not once try to challenge her on those assertions.
Of course not. He probably fed her the Talking points — are you kidding?
The actress went on to describe the brain size of typical “right-winger, Republican or conservative or your average white power activist.” “Their synapses are misfiring. … It is a neurological problem we are dealing with,” she said. This isn’t the first time she’s offered this analysis, either. Ms. Garofalo said similar things about Alaskan GOP Governor Sarah Palin’s brain last February in an interview with an environmental blog.
The actress went on to bash the GOP on MSNBC Thursday because it had “crystallized into the white power movement” as well as Fox News, which she said has captured the “Klan demo[graphic].” “Who else is Fox talking to? Urban older white guys and their girlfriends who suffer from Stockholm Syndrome,” she said.
Ironically, Ms. Garofalo is currently playing a role on the drama 24, which is aired by the Fox Broadcasting Company and is popular among conservative circles.
And which just really SUCKS this season. All the propoganda about various liberal causes snuck into the script disguised as “moral dilemmas” for Jack Bauer have left me coled. I’m glad I decided not to watch this season when I heard Garofolo would be on.
To be honest, I blame here still ruining “Mad About You” for me with her horrific season-ending episode where she whined for an hour about what terrible parents she had. Ick.
And frankly, I’m tired of supporting these propagandist leeches who try to shut down any dissent to their own narrow-minded, small worldviews.
So I’m taking action. And I’d encourage you to do so as well. I wrote to Fox TV and complained about Garofolo. (Oddly, Fox now requires you wait 48 hours before posting on their message boards. Too many negative comments, Fox?)
I wrote to my Cable company and complained about MSNBC:
438 NW Loop 410, Suite 103
San Antonio, TX 78216
And I found this contact information with a 5 second web search. I e-mailed them my concerns, then I printed out a copy and put it in the mail. They may not pay much attention to e-mails, but they do to written letters.
It may not have much effect; but I sure feel better knowing I did something.
So — don’t just sit there, huh?
Brian Maloney at The Radio Equalizer has an excellent rundown of Garofolo’s bizarre behavior over the last few years, including her disastrous career at Air America, and her campaign for a star on the hollywood Walk of Fame that only gathered 200 votes!
