Helen Thomas Won't Have Her Own Table at White House Correspondents Dinner
The Blaze ^ | 27 Mar 2012 | Eddie Scarry

Posted on 03/27/2012 3:42:27 PM PDT by seanmerc

Journalist Helen Thomas put in a request in February that she have her own table at this year‘s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Unfortunately for her, she was denied by the White House Correspondents’ Association, which Thomas once presided over.

“I would appreciate — particularly this year as we celebrate the 50 year anniversary of women being admitted to the WHCA dinner — to share this celebration with my family and close friends one last time,” she wrote in a letter to the WHCA board.

She’s outlived her usefulness to the American Communist Party.

Too many potential table-mates said “please, I’ll be eating.”

“Thomas retired from covering the White House beat in 2010 after she was caught on tape saying Jews should “Get the hell out of Palestine.”

“But”, whined Helen, when told her request for her own table was denied, “I was only repeating what I heard Obama say.”

Helen’s request translated: “I don’t want to sit at a table with any Jews”.

I guess it’s an example of you reap what you sow.

Actions have consequences, Helen - even yours.

(I am surprised, however, that her hatred of Israel didn’t win her preferential treatment from this White House.)

"Check out the pearl necklace on Helen...."

If you were obliquely referring to Matthew 7:6, "cast your pearls before swine"...good catch, except...

...her snout is way ahead of that string of pearls.

Funny, I thought all the others would have insisted she have her own table after looking at that.

Her face reminds me of a joke...

The old man goes to answer a knock at the door one evening only to find two sheriff’s deputies standing there.
“Sir, are you married?” One deputy asked.
“Why yes,” the old man replied “for 48 years.”
“Do you have a photograph of your wife sir?” the second deputy questioned.
The old man pulled a picture out his wallet and handed to the officers. They looked it over and handed it back to him.
“Sir, I’m sorry but it looks like your wife has been hit by a truck.”
The old man says, “I know son, but she’s got a wonderful personality and she’s a great cook.”

If Obama had remained in Indonesia, that is what his arranged marriage wife would have looked like.

She’s not going to have her own table? So this means someone will have to sit next to her?

Serves those reporters right... Schadenfreude...
