She should try out a veil.

Over her mouth, so no one can hear her anymore.

    Why give her more publicity, she’s relegated to a web based show where 10 people watch her.

    I guess 11 now that you’ve exposed her to Gord.

  2. Jim Hanna says:

    She used to play a flake on SNL. Turns out it wasn’t acting.

    I wouldn’t take this out on all Entertainers cum politicians, though; Franken turned out alright…

    • Chris says:

      I’d imagine washed-up entertainers are especially susceptible to falling in to these kinds of things – they know that their popularity is waning but hey, what’s this – these people want me to do a radio show? they want me to come to their events?

  3. Chris says:

    Poor, misguided idiot.

  4. dave says:

    If there is anything to what she says, she is spot on about it being a ‘quiet’ takeover.

    A lame attempt to get media attention for a long stalled career?……

    • Pomojen says:

      Actually, I think it’s mental illness. And I am serious about that – i actially feel sorry for her when I am not distracted with the ugliness of the content.

    This might be the expired eggnog talking, but I think that in these days of 10 second soundbites, polarized media outlets (both poles) and bucket-loads of cash mixed generously with unadulterated horseshit, almost anyone can get elected/ejected. How do we explain Ronald Reagan, Sonny Bono, and that Grady guy from Loveboat? Let’s face it, if we conducted a test among current elected officials based solely on their critical thinking abilities, over half would be looking for jobs as Wal-mart greeters. The remaining politicos would in all likelihood be lawyers AND WHO WANTS THAT!!!

    She was weak on SNL too

    • The Doctor says:

      Yeah, but at least back then she was kinda hot. Now, not.

      • The Doctor says:

        If I’m going to date a whackjob, said whackjob has to at least be hot. VJ not hot anymore. It just might have something to do with her no longer being in her twenties . . .

        • Pomojen says:

          Because only 20something women are hot. Even when the open their mouths and a huge turd falls out.

          Fuck, why does it even have to go there? Who gives a shit about what she looks like? Really. Really? Seems like if were talking about a woman around here we eventually have to endure the hot-or-not analysis.

          I love how I can never forget that if I want to hang out around here at all I must tolerate brilliance like this.

    Am I supposed to be more offended by this than by, say, people attorning to Jewish religious law? (Which they do.)

  9. kre8tv says:

    “Sharia creep” is just shorthand for “people who are different from me and that scares me.” Why so fearful, Gord?

    • smelter rat says:

      Gord, this post proves for once and for all that you have completely lost your mind. The ground Zero mosque? Are you sure you want to go there?

    • Ken says:

      What about the “ground zero mosque”?

      What happenings?

      Are you also repulsed by proselytizing evangelicals or Mormons? Jews for Jesus? Why or why not?

    • kre8tv says:

      I see no evidence of these groups “trying to implement their systems” on us. I just see a lot of guys in blue cardigans fretting over how their country club isn’t as homogenized as it used to be, but who can’t take a punch when someone rightfully calls them on their xenophobia. I’m curious: have you ever actually spoken to an Imam or any regular run-of-the-mill muslim? You might find your thinking is changed by facts rather than forming opinions simply based on what you feel (or fear) is true.

      • smelter rat says:

        Gwynn, you really need to stop listening to hate radio and watching Faux News. And loosen up that tinfoil hat, it’s cutting off the circulation.

      • smelter rat says:

        @gwynn…My agenda is to provoke and expose fuckwad dipshit trolls like you. Thanks for playing.

      • smelter rat says:

        Gord, Gord, Gord…Do you really bleive that gwynn isn’t trying to provoke with his extreme right wing nonsense? Read your Wiki definition again.

    • Philip says:

      Absolutely right Kre8tv. It’s all about manipulation of fear by right wing politicians and opportunities for control and nothing to do with actual danger to us. Muslims and “Western imams” are the latest in a long line of boogie-men that are supposed to frighten us all into cringing obedience.

      Historically, the West, has always looked to the Middle East and Asia to create it’s boogie-men. From the Turks of the 1500s, the “Yellow Peril” of the 1920s to the Muslims and “western imams” of today, the Eastern Hemisphere has always been a blank canvas for western societies to project their fears upon. Not so long ago, it was easy to create the boogie-men from the East, the cultures, peoples and religions of the Eastern Hemisphere were so visibly and markedly different than those of Europe and North American as to be almost alien. Fifty years ago, the average citizen of Europe or North America could be excused for having little or no knowledge of other cultures but not today. To continue to project nameless fears on those cultures is both intellectually lazy and deeply dishonest.

    Then, dear Mr. Tulk, you must also be repulsed by the annual celebration of the Red Mass, where participants pray to Saint Thomas More.

    “He burned as there was neuer wretche I wene better worthy.” (Thomas More after the burning of John Tewkesbury). Okay, the burning of so called heretics happened during the inquisition, but wait a minute – this guy has been declared a “Saint” and they pray to him to-day…

    • Philip says:

      Maybe the Westboro Baptist Church will earn Mr. Tulk’s disapproval? Funny how it’s so easy to throw around “western imams” and “radical islamists”, yet the hate-mongers at Westboro get a free pass from conservatives.

    If we are to accept Ms. Jackson’s version of events, and why shouldn’t we, the real victims here would be the unlucky FBI agent(s) tasked to give the briefing. That would have been six of the most painful hours of their life or lives. I can only imagine it would be remarkably similar to that scene in the Simpson’s Cape Fear episode, when Homer enters the Witness Protection Program.

    I have included the clip to give just a glimpse of what that hell must have been like.

    To be fair, Warren, she shouldn’t be an entertainer either.

    Some men need to wear a veil over their mouths as well.
