Demotivational Poster - Oblivious

janeane garofalo

Why do news shows insist on inviting Janeane Gaorfalo as a guest? For that matter, why do news shows insist on inviting any celebrity (left-leaning celebrities especially) as a guest. Since when have celebrities been considered experts on politics and news?

The obvious answer as to why celebrities are invited as guests is simple: to boost ratings (while unintentionally destroying credibility). And whenever Miss Garofalo appears on a show, she not only boosts ratings, but her own ego as an “intellectual” liberal.

Let’s just recap some of Garofalo’s sparks of brilliance:

• The Tea Party protests (or any protest against Obama) are racially motivated, and all protestors—or “teabagging rednecks”—hate Obama because of his skin color.

• Republicans, Conservatives, and Right-Wingers suffer from a neurological disorder caused by an enlarged limbic brain.

• Women and minorities in the Republican Party suffer from Stockholm syndrome (I guess Martin Luther King suffered from Stockholm syndrome, then).

• There is no liberal news outlet in America (if you don’t count CNN, MSNBC, all three broadcast networks, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, and Air America—a progressive radio station where Garofalo once hosted a radio show).

Who takes this woman seriously?
