Kentucky's shame

Helen Thomas is at it again.

The former White House correspondent, now a political commentator, is -- we are ashamed to say -- a Kentucky native. She certainly does not do her state proud.

It's always laughable to hear members of the traditional (or some may say, mainstream) media proclaim that they are not liberals. Indeed, as the senior White House correspondent, Thomas traditionally had the right to ask the first question in any presidential press conference or briefing. But after her retirement as a correspondent and her re-emergence as a columnist, ofttimes she won't even be called on. And for good reason. Her post-correspondent-era rantings show her to be a liberal of the Nth degree.

And for her to claim that the media lets the administration get away with too much is laughable. Can anyone remember a presidency that has been so lambasted in the press? Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush had walks in the park compared to the beating George W. takes every day.

The next time it's ever pointed out that Thomas is a Kentuckian, your mission is to reply, in a sorrowful voice, "Yes, I know and I am ashamed of that fact. On behalf of the Commonwealth, I apologize to the country for foisting her upon you."

Perhaps, George W is as dishonest with truth and reality as many who call themselves conservatives today.

As a result, he deserves to be taken to the wood shed on an occaision.

You fail to be specific with your criticism of Ms. Thomas.

Remember, Republicans such as T. Roosevelt were considered liberals.

Lincoln's party was originally the party that was for using government $$$ for internal improvements and public education.

My criticism of Helen Thomas is that she is a flaming liberal, misinformed and misguided.

The REAL Kentucky native who's spent some time in the White House press room, of whom we should be proud, is Tony Snow.
