It seems like over six months since I posted the last entry, and that's because Team Air America has faded from view. But, every once in a while they pop up to remind us of the glory days of AAR.
Thus it is with Janeane Garofalo who appeared on last night's Real Time with Bill Maher and gave her weighty, perspicacious thoughts on the most vital and important issue of our day.
No, I speak not of the four wars we're currently involved in or the fact that millions of Americans are unemployed. Instead, she gave her thoughts on Weinergate, the time-wasting, vastly unimportant scandal involving U.S. Representative and professional doofus Anthony Weiner.
Janeane's weighty thoughts (link):
Anthony Weiner deserves to be supported and hopefully he will be mayor of New York one day. I'm serious. He is a Democrat [who] actually fights for the things liberals and progressive and rational people care about... I don't know why he's being thrown under the bus. He hasn't done any -- he hasn't broke any laws
As Newsbusters - another Garofalo fan site - points out, it sounds like she was about to say "he hasn't done anything wrong" but then realized that was wrong. Garofalo also didn't mention the strange timing where Weiner criticized Clarence Thomas' wife's financial links to the teaparty and just a few days later the scandal emerged. She also didn't mention that there are far more important things to be worried about.
And, here's video:
