Jane Fonda undergoes surgery to replace left knee

NEW YORK (AP) — Jane Fonda has undergone surgery to replace her left knee.

The Oscar-winning actress had the operation Tuesday, and blogged about it beforehand.

In a wistful post titled "So Long Old Knee" on her Web site, Fonda wrote that her knee joint was to "be sawed out and in its place will go a titanium rod and ceramic joint."

According to Fonda, it had been "a strong, faithful knee." She said it helped her "up a lot of steep mountains and across rugged terrain." And she recalled smooches by former husband Roger Vadim (vah-DEEM'), who liked to kiss her knees.

They say she's also changing the name of her Left knee from "Brezhnev"--- to "Obama"...

Under O’bomber plan, what is most efficient: 1. Eliminate the complainer and get taxes 2. Treat somone who has no income to tax, but huge death tax to seize.

That “faithful knee”—that was the one she used to hop up on that NV anti-aircraft gun.

Still a traitor in my book.She has lived a charmed life after sabotaging our Vietnam war effort along with Kerry and Ted Kennedy, consigning three million people to a bloodbath in SE Asia after the fall of South Vietnam.

I hope she hears their screams for eternity.

The most disgusting thing to me is she clearly met the definition of traitor and no one was willing to call her on it legally.

Now Treason has almost no consequences.

She’s been leaning to the left for so long that the old knee just buckled under pressure.

Maybe she will meet those murdered people in the afterlife and maybe they will tear her to bits and then have that as a recurring scenario like in a Twilight Zone episode where your worst nightmares come true and get relived throughout eternity.

The slot should have gone to Canada to have her knee surgery, and wait about a year before actually having it done. After all, that is what she wants for all of us. F*ck her.

Hey Jane,

If you were Canadian, you could wait up to 18 months to get that left knee fixed. Oh wait, you have money and could go elsewhere. Us Yanks might be facing the same thing....well, I guess there’s India I suppose.
