Helen Thomas, doyenne of the White House Press Corps (or “Corpse” as the O-Man would pronounce it) since…um…the dawn of the Industrial Age has been unceremoniously dumped by her employer the Hearst Organization, following her remarks, saying Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine,” suggesting they go instead to Germany, Poland and the United States. The fomer gal-pal of Oscar Wilde and rumored inspiration for his classic “The Picture of Dorian Grey” was suddenly and emphatically fired after a career that spanned the better part of a century, after espousing a decidedly non-objective point-of-view in a recent interview caught on tape.
Of interest to TTAGencia is that Thomas was the 2010 winner of the Brady Vision Award from the Brady Center To Prevent Violence. In her acceptance speech, she called the United States Supreme Court Justices “inept” and insisted that the Supremes were living on “another planet.”
Don’t feel bad for Ms. Thomas, however. She’s apparently secured a lovely gingerbread house down in Dade County, Florida, where she’ll spend her sunset years luring orphans into her home for baking parties.
