Why She’s the most Insane Liberal of the Week: for picking a fight with White House spokesperson Dana Perino this past week. In a press conference on Wednesday Thomas directly asked Perino about the “number of innocents killed in Iraq”—a tired line long used by liberals to paint our troops as nothing but mindless marauders. Mind you, Thomas, a journalist with over 50 years of experience in news, is the same woman who once said of President Bush: “I’m covering the worst president in American history.”
An obviously upset Perino took offense at Thomas’ line of questioning, apparently believing Thomas was suggesting that U.S. forces deliberately killed innocent Iraqis, a suggestion she called “absurd and very offensive.” Ms Perino acknowledged that “to the extent that any innocent Iraqis have been killed [by U.S. forces], we have expressed regret for it.” But that wasn’t good enough for Thomas as the old far-Left loon responded with “a regret doesn’t bring back a life.”
No class. No shame. No integrity. And how sad it is when someone who is supposed to report the news tries to create it, but what else should one expect from a liberal hack posing as a journalist?
