Good Lord, Why Won't She Just Go Away?

Oh goody, Janeane Garofalo is making an a-hole out of herself again. Idiotic rantings like these are the reason I probably won't watch 24 this season. I wonder if there are any openings at Blogs4Heroes?
Friday night on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, "actress/comic" Janeane Garofalo asserted she has "no doubt" that, on the Bush National Guard story, "there were executives at CBS that folded under right wing coercion" and she endorsed MoveOn.org's ad which maligned General David Petraeus as "General Betray Us." The tattooed Garofalo, who has joined the cast of Fox's 24, charged: "Petraeus has been dishonest" and "is betraying us."

GAROFALO: And the thing is it's beside the point. And the mainstream media helps them out enormously. First of all, General Petraeus has been dishonest. That is sort of the role of a soldier like that, they, just like General Westmoreland and the 5 o'clock reports in Vietnam. Of course they are dishonest. That's what they do. And the thing is is to pretend that it's MoveOn.org that has the problem, and that the mainstream media allows that nonsense to continue. Yet, he is betraying us and I don't know why there aren't more brave Democrats who will say, "yeah, he is." (H/T - NewsBusters)
I frakkin' hate this woman, but not necessarily because she uttered these ridiculous comments. I frakkin' hate this woman because she is ignorant. Because only an ignorant person would say this about our servicemen and women:
"Of course they are dishonest. That's what they do."
That's what they do? Really? I thought protecting both our country and innocent people abroad is "what they do." I thought bringing freedom to those who've never experienced it is "what they do." I thought fighting communism, despotism, and fascism is "what they do."

Personally, I would rather take the word of someone who risked their life for this country (Captain America, Dennis, John D, and Pandy) than some airheaded skank who wouldn't cross the street to spit upon them.
