>He should be appreciated for his good works, but he is dumber >than a sack of hammers.

I'm afraid so. And he debates... well, he doesn't.

The other day, someone said that 9/11 commission found no evidence of Iraq/Al Queda connection. Absolutely wrong!! But he just let it go as if it were true. I don't know, I get tired of the same ole lines to where they become cliches and don't mean as much. To me, it's just beyond the pale.

"I thought she actually defended herself pretty well, while Sean was focused on being a nice guy, instead of getting to any real issues."

Only saw a moment or two on preview but that was my assessment as well, just from that short overview.

Was thinking 'another wasted opportunnity'.

First O'Reilly, with Michael Moore and now Sean squandering this interview. . .

Is is lack of preparation or are these two just too easily intimidated. . .

Her bio.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000413/bio

Biography for
Janeane Garofalo

Height
5' 1" (1.55 m)




Mini biography
Janeane, the petite woman with the acerbic wit, was born in Newton, New Jersey, in 1964, and had many jobs before breaking into show biz. She worked as a bike messenger, a shoe salesperson (no doubt with Al Bundy's disposition), waitress and temp secretary. Watching David Letterman on TV inspired her to write comedy, and by 1985 she was doing standup comedy. As such, Janeane has become a cult figure, giving a voice to a generation, venting her frustration at TV, dating, relationships, life in general and anything that ticks her off in particular. Janeane did sketches on the Ben Stiller show in 1992 (an Emmy winning, but canceled show). She would continue to collaborate with Ben Stiller in future projects. Janeane received 2 Emmy nominations for her work on the Larry Sanders show (1992), developing her signature character: a smart, cynical woman with a razor wit. She was not happy with her Saturday Night Live (1994) stint, and was vocal about it (of course). Transferring her persona from TV to the big screen, she moved on to movies, basically playing the character she had defined for herself. In "Romy and Michele's High School Reunion" (1997) she portrayed a smart, cynical, successful businesswomen with a razor wit, and this time with swear words (in the movie she had developed a brand of cigarettes with fast-burning paper, for the gal on the go; in real life it is alleged she smokes Marlboros). Janeane continues to work in TV and movies, often collaborating with Ben Stiller in a number of movies like "Mystery Men" (1999), his easygoing style being a counterpoint to her caustic nature. Fans love Janeane.

Spouse
Rob Cohen (16 August 1991 - present)




Trivia
She is a vegetarian.

Was offered the role of Gale Weathers in the movie Scream (1996), but turned it down to do the movie Sweethearts (1996). Courteney Cox then got the role and Scream (1996) which went on to gross more than $100 million, whereas Sweethearts (1996) went straight to video.

She has 7 tattoos.

Her production company is: I Hate Myself Productions.

Attended Madison High School in Madison, New Jersey.

Wrote a book with Ben Stiller: Feel This Book : An Essential Guide to Self-Empowerment, Spiritual Supremacy, and Sexual Satisfaction (1999).

Has a tattoo on her arm which reads "think".

Attended Providence College.

Garofalo, barely five feet tall, sometimes had to stand on a box just to be in the same frame with 6-foot co-star Uma Thurman in Truth About Cats & Dogs, The (1996).

Briefly lived in Minnesota at the beginning of her stand-up career

Is of Italian and Irish descent.

Admitted in 2003 interviews that she had overcome a sobriety problem with alcohol.

Married boyfriend Rob Cohen in 1992 at a Las Vegas drive-in chapel as a joke. They had gone to Vegas with the rest of the cast of "Ben Stiller Show, The" (1990) and decided to get married along with some of the other crew members. After their relationship ended they never officially got divorced.

In March 2003, she made an appearance on CNN's Cross Fire to discuss the international situation involving Iraq.

At one point or another, has worked with every member of the Kids in the Hall.

A some-time actress. I think she has (or had) a gig on Err America, following Randi Rhodes, too. Never heard her show, though.

Some of her movies: "Truth about cats and dogs" and a rip-off of "Meatballs" that's occasionally run on the Comedy Channel.
I've only seen the last 5 minutes of that movie.

And on Fox News, of course. :-)

Hannity is really lowering his standards. Today on his radio show he disagreed with one of the Swift Boat vets, saying that charges of treason against Kerry is "going too far and he can't accept that..."

Hannity's too nice sometimes, I understand it's important sometimes to keep cool when a lib is attacking you with BS. But Hannity overdoes it.

I *love* how she tries to sound so much more intelligent and educated than she actually is. For one thing, her grammar is atrocious. Another is that her voice is just *awful*.

If I had to listen to her on the radio while driving, I'd hit the gas and go right into oncoming traffic.

He said he was going to try to change her opinion of him. Is he nuts? Libs never see the light because they're too far out in left field.

That's what I mean about Hannity. He wants to be liked and he's too afraid to call a spade a spade. And there are times when he sits there and tries to have polite conversations with liberal scumbags. He was even telling Boortz that he wanted to have drinks with Terry McAuliffe during the convention. Hannity just doesn't get it sometimes.

Why would someone stop bathing? I'd like to know if she graduated from high school. I'd be floored if she went to college. You can almost smell her thru your TV.. but she's a foreign policy expert?

THe very best was last year, when she claimed in an interview that she watches Al Jazeera.

Now, I have a hard time believing that she understands Arabic (which is the language in which a-J broadcasts), as her grasp on English is tenuous, at best.

From imdb.com

Personal quotes from Janeane Garolfolo:

"I guess I just prefer to see the dark side of things. The glass is always half-empty. And cracked. And I just cut my lip on it. And chipped a tooth."

"Many people feel that mass acceptance and smooth socialization are desirable life paths for a young adult... Many people are often wrong... Don't bother being nice. Being popular and well liked is not in your best interest. Let me be more clear; if you behave in a manner pleasing to most, then you are probably doing something wrong. The masses have never been arbiters of the sublime, and they often fail to recognize the truly great individual. Taking into account the public's regrettable lack of taste, it is incumbent upon you not to fit in." (From her book "Feel This Book," co-written with Ben Stiller)

After 9/11 disaster from article in Commentary magazine, November 2001: "Who would have thought that I'd be angry on behalf of my country? I'm used to being angry at my country."

"The world would be better off with multiple superpowers. When Communist USSR was a superpower, the world was better off."

"Our country is founded on a sham: our forefathers were slave-owning rich white guys who wanted it their way. So when I see the American flag, I go, 'Oh my God, you're insulting me.' That you can have a gay parade on Christopher Street in New York, with naked men and women on a float cheering, 'We're here, we're queer!' -- that's what makes my heart swell. Not the flag, but a gay naked man or woman burning the flag. I get choked up with pride."

"You know what is good about these Dixie Chicks burnings or bashings? It's a wonderful, wonderful way for really stupid people to hook up. They meet, they throw some things on the fire, they talk about Vin Diesel, they tell stories about who their favorite Fox anchor is, they exchange phone numbers and in some cases has led to marriages."

"A lot of the hate mail I get is clearly misogynist. I am a proud liberal, feminst woman, and the hate mail I get about those three things is not about me. It's about those signifers, and about what the right in this country has managed to do to perpetuate anger over what they mean."

"We're (women) our own worst enemies a lot of the time, but I still blame men."

I haven't seen this level of vitriol from the Left or the Right for that matter. I have been following politics since JFK.

The Left has gone completetly around the bend

You mean subtitles? Perhaps, but I tend to doubt it. Then again, I do not choose to pay extra to get that rancid channel on my digital cable.

Spoken like a true Bolshevik. The only thing that would make her happy would be the replacement of The Constitution and confiscation of all private property. Sick!

Interesting that at one point she identified herself as a "classical liberal", the kind of liberal who helped establish this country - were she as smart as she thinks she is, she would understand that that "brand" of liberalism is much closer to today's conservatism, with its emphasis on individualism and personal liberty. On the other hand, since early in the last century Marxism and socialism have attempted to make themselves acceptable by hiding terms such as "progresive" and "liberal", and it is this brand of liberalism, with its government intervention in the economic and cultural lives of its subjects that Garfo in fact follows today......

It's the liberal mentality. What you see is what you get. Garafalo has never concerned herself with her appearance...obviously.

Once again a liberal is operating from the Clinton playbook: if they say it, it is true. Believe that's the playbook used by Baghdad Bob as well.

Yes, "nuanced", as in "complicated" (sKerry's favorite word). Bush said yesterday that there's nothing complicated about war. We're going to bury these guys.

Guys, this is PRIME TIME for the Kerry-maniacs out in Hollyweird. We want those left-leaners to get all the rope we can feed them and point 'em to the forrest to go hang themselves, because the more they do, the more likely Kerry gets hanged with 'em!

I was being sarcastic as I think the FCC regs only apply to programs produced in English and Spanish, but no, not subtitles - closed captioning is available on tvs made in last 10 years give or take. You have to change your settings - it's for those with hearing problems - Rush mentions it often as that's what he has to use.

It's like a transcript that scrolls along - pretty close to the original - you can leave your sound turned up and compare them.

They charge extra for AJ? I bet that's a major money maker!

Yes, I'm very familiar with closed-captioning. In the gym in my building, the TVs have no sound but the cc is always on and people can tune their Walkmen to certain stations to get the audio.

I imagine AJ gets lots of Arab and Muslim people who've moved here...But I doubt that poseurs like Garafalo can actually understand a damn thing that they're saying!
