"Liberal actress and political activist , in all seriousness, said activists who attended tea parties are racists with dysfunctional brains in a recent cable news television appearance.
"Let's be very honest about what this is about. This is not about bashing Democrats. It's not about taxes. They have no idea what the Olbermann Thursday evening. "This is racism straight up and is nothing but a bunch of teabagging rednecks. There is no way around that."was about. They don't know their history at all. It's about hating a black man in the ," she said on 's "The Countdown" with Keith This isn't the first time she's offered this analysis, either. Ms. Garofalo said similar things about Alaskan GOP Governor Sarah Palin's brain last February in an interview with an environmental blog.
Their synapses are misfiring. ... It is a neurological problem we are dealing with," she said.
Olbermann did not once try to challenge her on those assertions. (original link)"
Of course they are, Janeane.
In a profile entitled “Don’t Tread On Janeane” written by Trish Deitch, Garofalo, the failed comedian, bad actress, failed radio personality on Air America, and I'll assume poor waitress, regurgitated the following,
“Our country is founded on a sham: our forefathers were slave-owning rich white guys who wanted it their way. So when I see the American flag, I go, ‘Oh my God, you’re insulting me.’ That you can have a gay parade on Christopher Street in New York, with naked men and women on a float cheering, ‘We’re here, we’re queer!’ — that’s what makes my heart swell. Not the flag, but a gay naked man or woman burning the flag. I get choked up with pride.”They weren't ALL slave owners, Janeane. Please, do some research.
Look, first, I don't understand why anyone listens to Janeane Garofalo's qweef's let alone the air that comes out of her head. Second, who the hell is watching MSNBC anyway?
It seems to me that Janeane had a promising career path that should have been as big as Ben Stiller. She was even on his original FOX show 'The Ben Stiller Show." That lasted six episodes. Garofalo appeared in several dozen movies including "The Truth About Cats and Dogs" and "Reality Bites." She did six months on "Saturday Night Live" and several seasons as a sardonic booker on "The Larry Sanders Show." Playing herself was always her best work.
A decade or so later,
"that started ebbing," Ms. Garofalo said, sounding unsurprised. "As a female, how many roles are out there anyway? And for women over 40 who don't go to the gym, like myself? C'mon." Besides, she pointed out, "I was never a money-maker, as they say."It didn't work out. She wanted to focus on "her art." Which is another way of saying she wouldn't compromise. Or, she was just a pain in the ass to work with.
So then she went on Air America. Another complete and total failure. Obviously Bush's fault.
One can imagine, as Andy Dick, Margret Cho, Ben Stiller and the rest of her 'Posse' of Hollywood outsiders made truckloads of money, Jeanene has always been at the edge of the curtain. But it seems she keeps putting herself there.
But why is she now on "24?" Perhaps she needed the bread? Her current lashing out at the Tea Baggers? She's torpedoing her minor success with the Conservative crowd who watches 24. Just like every other success she has had.
