Oh, fuck off, Garofalo (or... "That time of month, eh Janeane?")

Hats off to Michael King's Ramblings' Journal, the unsinkable Michelle Malkin, and millions upon millions of blogheads who picked up on Janeane Garofalo's moonbatty meltdown on MSNBC's After Hours.

For those (like moi) who missed it, here's a recap courtesy of Kevin McCullough...

Janeane's pre-menstrual tic - EXPOSED!
... she says it means the same thing as the show of solidarity with the Iraqi voters that many bloggers, citizens and lawmakers had taken.
So Iraqi and Kurdish voters are NAZIS, eh Janeane? So what makes Mr. Saddam Hussein - FDR? MLK? JFK? WTF?

If so, then I must be a Nazi, too.

Can you imagine what my father (who be in Heaven) would say? How the fuck would my superiors in Maritime Command deal with a Hitlerite like me? Think about it.

And since Janeane ceased being funny after the Ben Stiller Show (RIP), she had nowhere to go but to the loving arms of Air Amerika, God love 'em.

What does Comrade G. have to say about her outburst?
The inked fingers and the position of them, which is gonna be a "Daily Show" photo already, of them signaling in this manner [does the Nazi salute], as if they have solidarity with the Iraqis who braved physical threats against their lives to vote as if somehow these inked-fingered Republicans have something to do with that. And also, the bit of theater about the very distraught parents of the soldier who had died, the point is not if this was a real moment, if it was staged, if it was PR. The point is, is those parents and their son were misled about why that young man went into Iraq. And when he wrote a letter to his mother saying, "It's my job to protect you now," protect her from what? The imminent threat of Saddam Hussein and his weapons of mass destruction? So don't bring up, "Is it helpful if the Democrats make some noise" when they're being lied to. That's not helpful, that's not helpful to pundits like you maybe, but it is not helpful to the country when a Republican President and his partisan Republican Party continue to perpetuate myth and dishonesty on the country.
Uhhh... okay. So, what's the fucking point?

Or more precisely, "What the motherfuck are you talking about, Janeane?"

So far, the United States have not experienced any attacks on its soil since 9/11/01. Maybe its because those freedom-loving al-Qaeda warriors are being sent a message saying, "YOU GOT SERVED, PUNK!"

Firstly - just because WMD's have not turned up in Iraq doesn't mean that they've never existed. Our previous assumption was that Arabs were incapable of complex cloak-and-dagger tactics of deception and subterfuge. Translation: they knew that the Coalition was going to come knocking anytime, so might as well get rid of any incrimiating evidence and hide them elsewhere. So... the question shouldn't have been "Did Saddam have WMD's?" but "Where did Saddam hide the WMD's?" In other words - if they ain't here, they're somewhere else.

This same kind of assumption led to 9/11, BTW.

Anyways, there's more to the story than what meets the proverbial eye, so click on the links.

As for Janeane - get some help. Or at least change your tampon once in a while.
