After years of service as the standard bearer for the demise of organized journalism, Helen Thomas, at age 92, will revert back to original form as a minor demon of Hell, and slither back to that much warmer climate that serves as her immortal home.
Never one to waste even a pico-second concerned with her outward appearance, and whose obvious lack of intimate relations with members of the opposite sex would embarrass Mother Teresa, Thomas haunted the White House Press Corp. for over 50 years.
She is perhaps best remembered for her deeply anti-Semitic rhetoric, at one point responding to a Rabbi’s question regarding what the Israelis should do, she famously said, “Get the hell out of Palestine.” She was blatantly and publicly disgusted with President George Bush, at one point quoted in the newspaper for saying “I’m covering the worst President in history”, a comment clearly made with no knowledge of the future.
She is an iconic representation of everything that has gone wrong in journalism today, and she will only be missed by radicalized Islamic splodey-dopes. It is a shame that the rest of her cohort of fifth columnists in the fourth estate are not also in their 90′s. I am afraid we do not have the time to wait for their natural demise.
