It's not my habit to make jokes of the dead (I'm sure others will be happy to do so).

May God have mercy on her soul.

Before she became so radical, I really liked the way she held politicians accountable.

Certainly not a fan of hers but after spending more time in DC than Bambi's been on earth, he trashed her for saying exactly the same thing his policies re: Israel are saying. He trashes everything he comes in contact with.

“Panty”; some, like here in New England, would prounounce
“Aunt” to rhyme with “want”...

I think that her soul has been the vault of the Democrat Party for eons. At least now, her and her idol Ted Kennedy can discuss old times.

I saw Helen Thomas recorded once saying she believed Vince Foster was murdered and that it happened “right there in the White House” (her exact words)

The talking-head interviewing her just chuckled and said “Oh, Helen!” as if it was just so funny for her to make a comment about their beloved Clintons...

And not ONCE did she call for investigation, if she believed that to be true

Look at the first sentence, before it is changed: Wikiepedia: Helen Thomas (August 4, 1920- July 20, 2013[1]) was the racist lady that said the thing about Jews. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helen_Thomas

Well you may not have liked her but she was one of the last journalists in the US who was not afraid of their family being bugged by the NSA and harassed by the IRS.

She was allowed by the ruling class to ask really uncomfortable questions of the Admin, and so she did.....

RIP Helen.

“Oh she took a few jabs at Obama and was punished for it.”

Like so many fellow travelers she learned that once accept the Marxist yoke and move onto the progressive plantation you will be destroyed by your “friends” the minute you stray. She became irrelevant the moment she tried to exercise a small amount of independent speech. Likely she died an extremely lonely creature, particularly if she did not know God.
