Helen Thomas of the White House Press Corps has pulled her foot out of her mouth and used it to quickly exit stage left. She announced her retirement, "effective immediately."
Thomas received widespread criticism for her recent remark that the Jews "ought to get the hell out of Palestine."
I was surprised to learn that Thomas is almost 90 years old. Seems it's way past time she retired.
It's too bad her retirement is a result of her public disgrace, but she is the sole author of that. Goodbye Helen, I for one won't miss you one bit.
