Elizabeth Taylor urges primary voters to back Clinton
CNN Polical Ticker ^ | 5/2/08 | CNN

(CNN) — Actress Elizabeth Taylor urged voters in next week’s Democratic primaries to back Hillary Clinton's White House run, saying in a statement released Friday that the New York senator was “not a flibbertijibbet.”

“It would be magnificent for our country if Senator Clinton won the votes, hearts and minds of the people in Indiana and North Carolina on Tuesday. She’s a brilliant teacher and powerful leader. We all know what she’s about. We know what she isn’t. Senator Clinton is not a flibbertijibbet [sic]. She’s strong,” said Taylor.

“It’s also important for great leaders to have a sense of humor about themselves. The future of our great country rests in the hands of the next president. Who sits in the Oval Office will be determined greatly by the citizens of Indiana and North Carolina. In my heart, I know they will choose wisely and they will choose well.”

The actress and activist is a longtime Clinton supporter who has donated the legal maximum of $4,600 to the senator’s campaign.

In January 2007, Taylor also pointed to Clinton’s toughness...

While living in the Hamptons, I had the, ahem, good fortune to attend a few parties where Liz and Richard Burton were in attendance. A raucous, ill-mannered, staggering drunk is the best way to describe her.

So that’s how Liz Taylor looks at Madame Trussaud’s wax museum.

I guess that means Barry-O is a “flibbertijibbet” and that sure sounds like hate speech to me.

Is Liz still tight with child molester Micheal Jackson? Is she married to her seventh husband still?

If she wants us to follow her suggestions about the right person for the most important position in the world, enquiring minds first want to know about all the other deviance in her life...

I wouldn’t be surprised if Richard Burton was the one who first said,

“No matter how beautiful a woman is, someone somewhere is tired of her %$#!”

- in reference to Liz.

 Liz, if you're going to use a word that will get most people's attention, you should really spell it correctly.  It's flibbertigibbet not flibbertijibbet.

Burton was drunk but mannerly, polite and charming. She had strange, purple eyes and looked like she could have been very beautiful were she not drunk beyond her limits-—a staggering gait takes the bloom off beauty. She had a mean streak that was conspicuous, whereas he came across as kind. This was very close to 35 years ago.

Richard could also knock back a few. As a bobby in Nottingham, many years ago, I had the pleasure of seeing him (watching from the side of the stage) chatting with I believe, John Mills for over an hour. His sense of humour was something else!
Saw her in a well known hotel in Santa Monica a few years ago. What a MESS! I won’t say anymore!

Had to look twice to make sure it was not Scrappleface. I suppose next she will call Obama a "golliwog".

I honestly don't see how she could still have a liver. She was one of those who evoked the "she's-as-drunk-as-one-can-get-and-still-stand-up" category.

Still, she is an example of how the old movie stars were so much more beautiful than the ones now. This of how beautiful she was in the movie where Montgomery Clift (understandably) kills Shelley Winters to be with her. Or the one where she wears the white bathing suit on the beach. They don’t make them like that anymore. Or like Ava Gardner or Rita Hayworth or Veronica Lake. In movies where a modern actress imitates an old star, invariably you feel, ‘not even close.’ Why is that?

Liz, you ignorant has-been, don't you realize that Hillary is also, not only a liar's wife, but also a liar herself? Hillary is a thief of silverware. Hillary is an opportunistic pant-suit wearing jilted wife who would be dangerous in the WH. Other than those negative attributions maybe she would qualify for dog catcher of you lovely Hollywood BUT she sure as hell doesn't qualify to be Commander-in-Chief of our armed forces......

Gee, I’m dial-up bound. But I saw that movie in about ‘66 and it was around 1973 or so when I met her in person. She was a lot like her role in the movie but really too drunk to be sufficiently articulate to deliver lines. So she came across as acerbic (just plain mean), but near incoherence.

Richard always seemed very magnetic to me. They say she was the ruin of him.
He really did have an amazing talent and charisma and she, in her day, was breathtaking. I knew someone who went to a Hollywood premier and he said with a room full of gorgeous women, he couldn’t take his eyes off of Liz.

A woman I know whose whole family is in the movie business said that most of those people are unhappy.

I thought that was “Suddenly Last Summer.” She was good-looking in “Butterfield 8” as well. Regarding screen actors and actresses from the 50’s and 60’s, both the men and women were much classier then. I don’t know why, too much fluoride in the water, perhaps.

Yes she is strong, Liz..

It's that same damn pant suit she keeps wearing. It needs to go to the cleaners already!
