Who knew Nina Totenberg was still alive? She used to use the same chiropracter as I did. He had some good stories about the chick. What a loon.

Inside Washington host Tina Gulland: "I don’t think I have any Jesse Helms defenders here. Nina?"

Nina Totenberg: "Not me, I think he ought to be worried about what’s going on in the Good Lord’s mind, because if there is retributive justice, he’ll get AIDS from a transfusion, or one of his grandchildren will get it."

Really, this is a throwaway. Obama doesn’t have to appoint the sister to keep Nina in line.

Oh, about the AIDs comment, I'm sure that would be on the minds of the sort of Leftwingtards who are affiliated with Nina.

Wasn't she some sort of "trophy bride" once? Moved in those circles anyway.

These ol'gals do not seem to age well.

Michael Savage was fired from MSNBC for telling a harassing (straight prankster who pretended to be homosexual) to choke on a sausage (Michael was frying sausages on the show), get a stomach parasite from raw sausage, and “get AIDS”. (3 ways to “drop dead”).

Nina still works on the public dollar at State Run NPR.

Gee, who saw that coming? Nina Totenberg is the reason I do not listen to NPR.

Interesting to note with the pronunciation thing that “Tot’’ in German means ‘’dead’’. As liberals are basically dead from the neck up.

Ah, what happened to the “proudly hitting hit without looking at the picture” tagline?

Interesting, indeed. "Toten" should be the plural form. "Berg" appears to mean "mountain". So, "Totenberg" literally translates to "mountain of the dead" or "dead mountain". (/BabelFish)

Note: this topic is from March 17, 2010. Thanks Free ThinkerNY. Amazing the stuff we have here on FR, but given over two million threads -- and only about 1.5 million are duplicates of other threads -- it stands to reason that we can't possibly remember everything that we've seen. :')
