Helen Thomas-candidate for future soap opera

Posted by: ST on August 1, 2005 at 11:59 am

…. should there ever be one called "As the Tables Turn."  Via Drudge:

White House press doyenne Helen Thomas is plenty peeved at her longtime friend Albert Eisele, editor of THE HILL newspaper in Washington, D.C.

In a column this week headlined "Reporter: Cheney’s Not Presidential Material," Eisele quoted Thomas as saying "The day Dick Cheney is going to run for president, I’ll kill myself. All we need is one more liar."

Thomas also said: "I think he’d like to run, but it would be a sad day for the country if he does," according to Eisele’s column.

But Thomas said yesterday at the White House that her comments to Eisele were for his ears only. "I’ll never talk to a reporter again!" Thomas was overheard saying.

"We were just talking — I was ranting — and he wrote about it. That isn’t right. We all say stuff we don’t want printed," Thomas said.

But Eisele said that when he called Thomas, "I assume she knew that we were on the record."

"She’s obviously very upset about it, but it was a small item — until Drudge picked it up and broadcast it across the universe," Eisele said.

Still, he noted that reporters aren’t that happy when the tables are turned. "Nobody has thinner skin than reporters," Eisele said with a laugh.

      This is hilarious stuff. If someone listed all of the moonbat stuff Helen has said over the years it would fill volumes.

      The most revealing (and delicious) part, to me, is that she now is fuming that her nasty remark was considered “on the record” by (Horrors!) colleague. Hey, Helen, the walls have ears for liberal media types, too, now. Never spout something you wouldn’t say in front of your mother.
