Give Him Hell, Helen
For the first time in three years, cowardly warmonger George W. Bush called on venerable journalist Helen Thomas during a White House press conference, who asked him why he wanted to go to war with Iraq from the moment he took office.
He said he didn't want to go to war, that no president wants war.
When she tried to challenge that claim, he kept rudely interrupting her until he managed to elude her and move on.
Thomas has been a member of the White House press corps since 1961.
She has skewered every president since John F. Kennedy, and rightfully so, because as a journalist she has always represented the rights of the American people to know what their president is doing, and why.
If anyone wanted to see a demonstration of a highly competent journalism veteran going after a weak, thin-skinned politician, the recent exchange between Thomas and Bush fit the bill.
Bush can't take the heat from serious journalists.
He cannot justify his ridiculous actions.
The emperor has no clothes, and Helen Thomas exposed him in just a scant few moments.
Helen Thomas has questioned the last eight presidents during White House Press Conferences, so she's in a position to rate their performances.
She rates George W. Bush as the worst president in modern history.
And she oughtta know.
