Kerry : Help is on the way! Hanoi Jane Partners with MoveOn.Org
CNN's Paula Zahn show transcript ^ | 68-69TonkinGulfYachtClub

'Hanoi Jane' Partners with MoveOn.Org

'Hanoi Jane' Fonda is teaming up with a leading anti-Bush 527 group in a bid to register millions of women voters to cast their ballots for her old anti-war protest partner, John Kerry.

Fonda, who called President Bush a "radical ideologue" during a campaign stop in New York City last week, was asked about her latest move during a recent interview with CNN's Paula Zahn, and explained why she's come out of political retirement to back Kerry:

ZAHN: Let's talk a little bit about this partnership you have with MoveOn.org, an organization that has spent tens of millions of dollars to try to defeat George W. Bush. Is it your primary goal to elect John Kerry?

FONDA: Our primary goal is to try to get the 50 million women who are eligible to vote and have not voted to vote. We want the woman's voice to be in the body politic.

ZAHN: But the fact is, Jane, with the vast amount of money that MoveOn.org has spent running ads against President Bush, is there any way you can encourage women out there who would be inclined to vote Republican to come to the polls?

FONDA: We're the majority. If we voted, we would make a difference. We could decide who was elected. We could decide whether the person elected, man or woman, was going to care about and speak to our issues. . . . .

ZAHN: Jane, I find it hard to believe when you talk to these 50 million women out there that didn't vote that you just want them to vote their hearts. You really want them to vote for John Kerry, don't you?

FONDA: I'm not putting myself, nor am I asked to be in either campaign. I'm just saying that I know that if women voted and they voted with their hearts and with their bodies and their souls, that the future would be more safe, because that's where our hearts are.

ZAHN: But you personally, obviously, are more comfortable with Kerry.

FONDA: I'm a Democrat. My father would strike me dead from the heavens if I ever voted for a Republican. Ted could never understand: "You've never voted for a Republican?" I can't do that to my father, who was a yellow dog Democrat. What can I say?

[END OF EXCERPT]

Zahn then broached the sensitive subject of the Vietnam War, which Fonda and Kerry protested together in 1970 and 71, prompting the controversial actress to share her insights into why so many Americans still hate her.

ZAHN: Jane, you have spent a number of years trying to put your controversial Vietnam past behind you. And yet for the last week or so, we have seen a tremendous amount of news coverage on George W. Bush's service in the national guard and questions being asked about John Kerry's service in Vietnam.

What does that tell us about how raw the feelings are to this day about the Vietnam War?

FONDA: It tells us that they're raw. It tells us that we have not healed. We need to heal from this wound, because it's very directly connected to what -- to the new wound. We haven't learned, you know, the lessons of Vietnam.

ZAHN: Jane, you have apologized to the families of Vietnam War vets, saying that maybe you have said some things that you wish you hadn't said along the way. Do you think you'll ever be able to satisfy people to this day who question what you did in Vietnam?

FONDA: No. There's a lot of people who -- who -- it's a cottage industry to hate me. And if they -- if they stop, that might mean that they'd have to look at some things that would question their own identity. And that's -- it's very hard for people to do.

"First I picked Edwards BUT now I pick Hanoi Jane!"

Edwards played football in 1971 when he turned 18
instead of serving in Vietnam.
Hanoi Jane at least was a Viet Cong!
Just like me!

Hanoi Jane and I know how to demoralize US Troops serving today!

We hate US Troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

We hate all US Troops!

We lie about them in 2004 the same as we did in the 60's and 70's!

We vow to insult and undermine Iraq Prime Minister Ayad Allawi

We vow to protect the UN and the Oil for Food Scandal

We vow to keep secret the ties between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaida

We vow to free Saddam Hussein with help from our old friend Ramsey Clark.

I'm no wonk, but I would think that Fonda putting her name on the Kerry candidacy would be the kiss of death. How long before we see her in that NVA helmet captioned "Kerry's my kinda President!"?

Fonda "helping" Kerry is a great idea....for George Bus to get re-elected. These people aren't the most strategic thinking people in the world.

No. There's a lot of people who -- who -- it's a cottage industry to hate me. And if they -- if they stop, that might mean that they'd have to look at some things that would question their own identity. And that's -- it's very hard for people to do.

She's a legend in her own mind. I doubt anyone under forty even knows who she is or cares. These old munchkins have such an inflated sense of themslves. Literally inflated in the case of her tatas.

Hanoi Jane will just remind all the veterans why they will not vote for Kerry and will vote for Bush!

Go ahead, Fonda. Make our day!

I suppose it's too much to ask that they vote with their heads.

This is one of the worst cases of psychological projection I've ever seen. Jane, it is YOURSELF who is a radical ideologue!

I know I'd feel a lot better about Vietnam if Jane Fonda were to spontaneously combust or something like that.

50 million? That stat looks highly inflated to me but then femitwits have a long history of lying about statistics -- that is when they bother to back up what they are claiming at all.

What's really pathetic, is the bit about her father never forgiving her for voting for anyone but a dim.

You're right Jane, we need to heal from this wound you created. I know when it's going to happen for me. I am going to watch your funeral from behind a tree, and just as soon as the last spade of earth has been tamped down I am going to dance a jig on it. Then, I will feel as if I have finally healed.

You almost have to feel sorry for the Kerry campaign. First Teraazzzaa and now Lame Fonda. As though making Kerry interesting and credible wasn't hard enough on it's own. Those guys are certainly underpaid, I hope none of them are hoping for a position in the administration.

if women voted and they voted with their hearts and with their bodies and their souls, that the future would be more safe, because that's where our hearts are.

This is why the 19th Amendment has failed. We don't need logic, just feelings. Use scare tactics and offer us a panacaea, we'll vote for you. Tell us your opponent somehow disadvantages our kids, and we'll beat a path to your door.

This is just too good to be true. The gods of fate have stuck it where it belongs. This should be good for about a 15 point drop for Kerry.

Spread the word. This woman is perhaps the most hated female figure in American history.

Hanoi Jane and Hanoi John, back together again.

I got the Stolen Honor documentary in the mail this morning and just finished watching it. I wonder how those guys would have felt if an American voice had been broadcast into their cells, telling them "Help is on the way!" Instead, they got to hear Kerry blathering about fake war crimes.

Does anybody know where I can find a solid estimate of POW deaths in '71 and after? I know we lost 14,000 guys in combat after Kerry opened his fat mouth, but I don't know abotut POWs.

Of course I'm not an expert, but I would think the last person Kerry would want to be associated with in present times is Jane Fonda.
