If there was any question that Thomas is anti Semetic after what she said earlier this settles it. And of course there are liberals who are applauding this "award".

The longtime White House correspondent who resigned from Hearst newspapers in June in the wake of comments she made about Israel will receive a lifetime achievement award from the Council on American-Islamic Relations.


CAIR is honoring Helen Thomas, who is of Lebanese descent and now 90 years old, at its Leadership Conference and 16th Annual Fundraising Banquet on Oct. 9 in Arlington, Va.

Speakers will also include Oxford Islamic studies scholar Tariq Ramadan.

What was done to her was despicable, including on here. I am honored to have met her and chatted with her after she came out of retirement after GWB was "elected."

So right about that. Even in day to day life I still hear the rants and raves about Bush. I will usually just chuckle and ask 'You know he's not the President anymore, right?' lol
