TLP: "Retired" ... Uh, Yeah
If the lovely and talented Jr Deputy Accountant ever decides to fire The Lazy Paperboy (although, how could she with ass-kissing like that and, hello, I brag about my tendency toward laziness?) I am totally going to say I "retired." Worked for Helen Thomas.
To many in Washington, two sets of rules seemed to apply for journalists covering the president: those for regular White House correspondents, and those for Helen Thomas.Whatever, enjoy your "retirement," Helen. Something tells me there wasn't a cake in the White House press room.
To every president since John F. Kennedy, Ms. Thomas, 89, was known for posing questions in the kind of tough and provocative manner that could make press secretaries gasp and her colleagues cringe.
And it appears that her tart tongue may have finally ended her career. Ms. Thomas said on Monday that she was retiring, effective immediately, after an uproar over her recent remarks that Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine” and go home to “Poland, Germany and America and everywhere else.”
