Helen Thomas Smackdown
Possibly mistaking herself for Cindy Sheehan, Helen Thomas presented the President with the following question at yesterday's press conference:
I'd like to ask you, Mr. President, your decision to invade Iraq has caused the deaths of thousands of Americans and Iraqis, wounds of Americans and Iraqis for a lifetime. Every reason given, publicly at least, has turned out not to be true. My question is, why did you really want to go to war? From the moment you stepped into the White House, from your Cabinet — your Cabinet officers, intelligence people, and so forth — what was your real reason? You have said it wasn't oil — quest for oil, it hasn't been Israel, or anything else. What was it?
Needless to say this is not journalism, but juvenile and disrespectful soapboxing. Waiting for the public to realize that they are being systematically misled by people who want to see our country degraded and defeated isn't working. If the dreary poll numbers that have brought so many smug smiles to the press are going to be reversed, it's high time to take the gloves off and fight back.
Bush did so with the perfect touch, never losing his graciousness, much less stooping to the yapping-dog level of his MSM detractors, as he put the loathsome little troll in her place by patiently yet passionately describing some of the recent historical events that made the invasion of Iraq all but unavoidable.
Expose the Left has video. Careful — Thomas got carried away with the lipstick again; she isn't a sight to take in on a full stomach.

I must have heard/seen the glorious "smackdown" 4 times yesterday. Had a dream about it, but it involved a pot of boiling oil as well.
Now, if Bush could address all of his critics - MSM or political -- in similar fashion, he'd be getting somewhere.
Priceless image btw...

Ms. Thomas to me is like many people in the DC Metro area, so wrapped up in a mindset that the Republic will fall if they are not doing what they are doing, that they fail to see the need to get a life.

I expect moonbat supreme will believe it. After all, no one can prove GWB didn't kill JFK.

One comment on the Photoshop:
The monkey skin is too youthful for that ugly old commie moonbat hag.

Bush needs to keep the beat downs on the Surrender Monkeys going. Can only be civil to these wackjobs for so long.

"Too youthful", Doug?
Maybe she can get a skin graft from Debbie Schlussel after that one has her overdose....

Why stoop to the personal attack? Sure, disagree with her, but photoshopping her face on that picture and some of the comments are just vile. What is up with Americans (both sides) that we can't disagree by defending our opinion, and discussing the issue (and staying on topic), but instead everyone seems to run to the safety of the personal attack. I guess it is easier than defending your position.

Maybe she can get a (fore)skin graft from my male lover in the #ssless chaps. He's got plenty to spare.
