Helen Thomas Gone! Ding! Dong! The Witch Is Dead....
Want to know the most stressful part of being President? Staring at THIS every day when speaking. Good God! It has been reported Helen Thomas' face has a similar effect to Provera on the typical male.
Veteran White House correspondent Helen Thomas announced her retirement Monday following an uproar over comments she made last month about Jews in Israel.
Hearst Corporation, which employed Thomas as a columnist, put out a brief story via Hearst News Service announcing the retirement "effective immediately."
The announcement came after the White House Correspondents Association decried her remarks as "indefensible" and began to consider whether Thomas should continue to have the privilege of a front-row seat in the briefing room. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs called her remarks "offensive and reprehensible" on Monday, as other former White House spokesmen called for Thomas to be fired.
