Longtime White House reporter and columnist Helen Thomas, she of the famous news conference-ending “Thank you, Mr. President!” declaration, has finally gone too far. In a May 27 exchange with Rabbi David Nesenoff, which was captured on video , Thomas said Israelis should “get the hell out of Palestine” and “go home” to Germany and Poland.
Diane Nine, president of the speaking agency Nine Speakers, said in a statement it would drop Thomas, who has earned the nickname “Dean of the White House Press Corps,” as she has covered the White House since 1960.
The solution? The Shad says put a windbreaker on her, get her whatever kind of smokes she wants, wheel her down to the dog track, stick a Racing Form in her hands…and leave her there.
