Janeane Garofalo comments on Rush Limbaugh

Janeane Garofalo does some spot on analysis of Rush Limbaugh.

The above clip is Janeane Garofalo prior to the war in Iraq. Remember, she was proved right about the WMDs and what a disaster this war would be. She even corrected in real time some of the Fox News inaccurate talking points. Do they have her on and apologize now to her because she was correct? No.

I love the ending of this clip regarding Fox and why she was booked. Janeane is a very brave, very smart woman. She knew the history, she knew her facts and sources. Brian Kilmeade used almost all of the RW radio arguing methods of Hannity and his ilk.

Will Brian Kilmeade, in 2009, look at this and think, "Wow. I was wrong! She was right. I will treat her with respect for that." Will he think, "Maybe I should listen to what Janeane says next time I see her on TV."? No. He won't because he is very much like Rush, only without the glimmer of self awareness that Janeane attributes to Rush.

I've listened to Janeane for years, she probably won't agree with me when I praise her, but she really is one of the most insightful commentators on the media and politics in America (excluding my friends in the blogosphere).

In regards to her FOX news interview, even though I'm pretty much non-violent, I wouldn't have been offended if she had simply reached across the table and smacked that dipshit.

Also, since the GOP continues to refer to the Majority Party as the Democrat Party I think we should refer to them as The Assholes. At least we would be accurate in our description.

Love in Christ,

Great side-by-side. I love Janeane. The pre-war clip is just poetry.
