Not So Golden Girl

Oh, Helen Thomas. Nobody really remembers why you mattered to begin with, but at some point, you simply became one of those institutions.  What a grand, old dame, what a great character.   But while we may not remember how she began, we’ll all remember how she ended–with a vitriolic little racist rant calling for Israelis to go “back” to Poland and Germany.

While we reject calls to drop her from the White House Press Corps (you know, not a great thing for the gov’t to ban reporters whose ideas they find distasteful–there’s probably a rule about that somewhere), we think a better solution would be for her to bow out gracefully, and  to seamlessly replace her with the current octogenarian flavor of the month–White House Press Corps, meet Betty White!

What do you think?
