I Would Very Much Like to Say That Janeane Garofalo Has Lost Her Mind …

Posted on | August 18, 2011 | 38 Comments

. . . but there isn’t much evidence that she was ever entirely sane:

Last night, on failed MSNBC talk host Keith Olbermann’s new Current TV show (a network with less viewers than MSNBC), Janeane Garofalo said Herman Cain must be getting paid to run, has Stockholm Syndrome and that the Tea Party and Conservative movement is racist.

A few samples of Janeane’s brilliant political insights moonbat rantings:

“[Herman Cain] in this presidential race because he deflects the racism that is inherent in the Republican party, the conservative movement, the Tea Party certainly. [In] the last 30 years the Republican party has been moving more and more to the right, but also race-baiting more. Gay-baiting more. Religion-baiting more,” Garofalo said.
“But, Herman Cain, I feel like, is being paid by somebody to be involved and to run for president so that you go like ‘I love that, that can’t be racist. He’s a black guy, a black guy asking for Obama being impeached.’ Or ‘it’s a black guy whose anti-Muslim. It’s a black guy who is a Tea Party guy.'”
Garofalo also had some conspiracy theories as to who may be putting Cain up to this.
“And I feel like wouldn’t that suit the purposes of whomever astroturfs these things. Whether that be the Koch brothers or Grover Norquist or any anything. It could even be Karl Rove. ‘Let’s get Herman Cain involved so it deflects the obvious racism of our Republican party,'” Garofalo said.

Along the way, she managed to cite the Southern Poverty Law Center as a definite authority for the fact that America’s inherent racism has skyrocketed since Obama’s election. I just spent 10 days in Iowa, where Herman Cain was greeted by cheers from thousands of members of the party of “obvious racism.” Maybe all those Iowans are part of the Koch brothers/Grover Norquist/Karl Rove conspiracy.

UPDATE: Janeane Garofalo is obviously much more knowledgeable about racism than the guy in this video:

    OK, sure. . .B–ch! Does she not realize that this is a totally self-made man? Does she realize that he was creating jobs when her hero, the Dear Leader President Obama, was busy taking bong hits at Oxy? Yeah, those two, the worst sportscaster in the world and dried-up comidienne giving political commentary. I would rather get two people from the homeless shelter. They have more a clue than these two!

    I assume you all know that the Tea Party “Restoring America Rally” being
    held in Iowa on Sept. 3rd with Sarah Palin as keynote speaker has been
    moved to another location due to capacity and parking concerns. Moving
    to another outdoor site south of Des Moines that has capacity for 20,000
    or so…

    I still can’t decide where I stand on HC.  I personally find him to be engaging and refreshing.  I really don’t care about the racial angle.  I also doubt he has a snowball’s chance in hell of winning.  Still, I like him.  I like him more now that Janeane Garofalo and the rest of the Democrat party (otherwise known as the “Jim Crow” party or the “George Wallace/Bull Conner” party) hate him so much.

    RSM: “I would very much like to say that Janeane Garofalo has lost her mind . . . but there isn’t much evidence that she was ever entirely sane . . . ”

    For that matter, there was never much evidence that she had a mind to lose, in the first place.

    She’s a racist- she doesn’t think that a black man could have his own thoughts and free will; she thinks that any black man must be a tool of a white guy or something. Oh, and she ignores the fact that Cain himself is successful- to her, all black people are poor, and so it has to be a white guy backing him. She’s sick and wrong.

    Garafalo sporting some Heroin chic there? Or  maybe it’s starvation from having no paying work since even in Hollywood they think she’s nuts. Maybe she can get a gig with Kathy Griffin.

    I really do love Herman Cain – have since I first heard him fill in for Boortz. He is unfailingly kind, but firm and clear in his intelligent, informed and considered opinions and outlook. He LOVES this country, and everything it stands for, in a way that is inspiring and touching.

    No matter who we run, we are going to be told they ‘cannot win.’ 

    Imagine the difference in the world today if Obama was a man like Herman Cain. He isn’t, and it is a shame. Obama hasn’t got one iota of the integrity, work ethic or morality, much less the good common sense that Herman Cain exudes from every pore.

    We are incredibly fortunate to have such good people running. Don’t listen to those who say otherwise.

    Ms. Garofalo has her GED and actually took a class in drama at the college level once.  Do not question her expertise.

    Remember that her insane leftist ranting kept her employable when talent had run its short course, so there must be something to it . . .

    Au contraire.  Neurologists searching for “the remote roots of consciousness” have been quite excited about adding Ms Garafalo to their study pool (cockroaches, flatworms, shrimp, flies ….).  Quite possibly, their missing link.

    ” Herman Cain, I feel like, is being paid by somebody to be involved.”Typical Leftie logic: I feel it, therefore it it true. And the reason I feel it is that to not feel it would be admitting to myself that what I believe is just plain wrong.

    That bird on her shirt should have a sign under it that says “I’m with stupid” .

    Since what apocalyptic disaster has Janeane Garofalo become the ‘go to’ person for SANE AND LUCID commentary on Conservatists?

    She has NEVER uttered one respectful comment about ANY  Republican or Conservative or any conservative idea.

    She is like a one item vending machine; put in your money and out pops an anti-conservative/Republican diatribe that only barely has any contact with reality.

    Thanks Janeane for your consistency!

    That ugliness, which seems to be intensifying by the day, I think is the physical distortion of features that occurs in someone who is mentally ill.  She has admitted that she is on meds and has psychological problems.
