    WHOOPI Goldberg is still mad at the Democrats. Goldberg, who was renounced last summer after making a lame double entendre about George W. Bush at a John Kerry fund-raiser, told Air America's "Politically Correct" host David Bender: "My party abandoned me. There's no other way to say it: they put their tails between their legs and they ran. I've closed my eyes to the party. I haven't turned my back on them, but I no longer feel comfortable saying that I feel like I'm represented by them. Until people can stand up for what's right in the face of whatever...

    The Kerry campaign has repeatedly refused to release a transcript of a fundraiser it conducted among Hollywood stars in New York City last month, after attendees reportedly called President Bush a "cheap thug who sacrifices our young," "a liar" and "a killer." Michael Moore further fueled left-wing rage with Fahrenheit 9/11, and protests outside the Republican Convention later this month are expected to air a good deal of liberal dirty laundry.In the March 2001 issue of TAE, Balancing Act, Blake Hurst reflects on similar outbursts from the left during the 2000 election.

    I Showbot By Scott Galupo THE WASHINGTON TIMES One of my favorite sideshows of modern presidential politics is the celebrity herd, the Hollywood actors and the rock stars among whom conformity of opinion is as thick as San Fernando Valley smog.     Whoopi Goldberg gave that smog an extra layer of zing last week at a star-studded fund-raiser for presidential hopeful John Kerry at New York's Radio City Music Hall. She told a few sleazy one-liners that riffed on the president's last name. EXCERPT: LINK TO ARTICLE

    MILWAUKEE, WI - The Kerry-Edwards campaign is touting a new theme - values. Until recently, they were unclear about just which values they were talking about. But recently, at a star-studded fund-raiser that raised $7.5 million for the Kerry-Edwards ticket, America learned a little too much about these so-called values. Actress Whoopi Goldberg made obscene references to the president's name. Cameras caught Mr. Kerry and Mr. Edwards laughing and cheering her on. According to actor Paul Newman, the president's tax cuts were "borderline criminal." Chevy Chase said that Mr. Bush's most recent read was "Leader of the Free World for...

    LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) -- Outspoken actress Whoopi Goldberg lost her Slim-Fast gig for agreeing to speak at a Democratic fundraiser. Goldberg reportedly used the president's name as a sexual reference at a fundraiser for presumptive Democratic nominee John Kerry. Goldberg has endorsed Democrats many times in the past and is known for her political views in her comedy routines. The actress released a statement saying, "While I can appreciate what the Slim-Fast people need to do in order to protect their business, I must also do what I need to do as an artist, as a writer and as an...

    Although they should have acted more quickly, Slim-Fast did the honorable thing by firing Whoopi Goldberg as spokesperson after her reported filthy rant against President Bush ("Shaking Whoopi — Slim-Fast dumps Bush-bash star," July 15). Should the career of this has-been "entertainer" ever be resuscitated, her second-rate performances should be boycotted by all of us with consciences. Maybe she'll get the message that candidate John Kerry's idea of "the heart and soul of our country" — and his idea of what passes for entertainment — is not our idea. Maureen Abato Brooklyn --SNIP-- Whoopi should be ashamed of herself. I...

    WASHINGTON - Whoopi Goldberg lashed out at Republicans again yesterday, branding them hypocrites for trying to "punish" her for joking about the President. Fired from her gig as SlimFast spokeswoman, the salty entertainer hit back at Republicans who threatened a SlimFast boycott over sexual puns she made about President Bush's name at a Democratic fund-raiser. "America's heart and soul is freedom of expression without fear of reprisal," she said in a statement. "I find all this feigned indignation about 'Bush bashing' quite disingenuous," she said, noting the Bush administration has savagely gone after critics like former Sen. Max Cleland, Iraq...

    Whoopi Cushion -- (When Oral Flatulence Passes For Humor Or Wisdom) R.A. Hawkins Recently Whoopi Goldberg, the leftwing brainchild, decided to entertain her minions of darkness with her benighted sense of humor. It is no surprise to me that Kerry was seen to be laughing his keester off at her decadent jokes. Poor Kerry didn’t have the sense to realize where this might leave him. Now he has the Republicans asking him to release a tape of the show so that everyone else can enjoy it. I rather doubt that will be happening anytime soon. ‘The moment we will not...

    If you want to know why we will never see the likes of a Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, Eisenhower or Reagan again, consider the verbal assault perpetrated upon President Bush and Vice President Cheney by Whoopi Goldberg and the rest of the Hollywood upper crust at the Kerry fund-raiser at Radio City Music Hall ("Radio City Filth Fest," Editorial, July 12). If they want to criticize the administration's policies, fine. But, they debase themselves when they stoop to personal attacks. I am disappointed that Sens. Kerry and Edwards did not follow the example set by Howard Dean and object to the...

    The pathological behaviour of Hollywood celebrities, particularly Whoopi Goldberg and Chevy Chase, at a Hollywood sponsored Bush-bashing fund raiser at Radio City Music Hall reminded me of a hate session from Orwell's 1984, with President George Bush in the role of the detested Emmanuel Goldstein. That Whoopi Goldberg acted as a cheerleader for this Hollywood anti-Bush hate team is not at all surprising. After all, this is the same Whoopi Goldberg who praised the vicious East German communist regime. "What a country!" she exclaimed. A barbed wire enclosed prison state that murdered those who tried to escape its clutches. What...
