Comedian and kooky leftist Janeane Garofalo is at it again, smearing conservative activists as "white power" racists. Garofalo made her incendiary comments on the October 2 edition of Bill Maher's "Real Time" program on HBO.
Sorry, Janeane, the "real reason that so few people are willing to talk about racism is because, quite frankly, few people are as crazy as Janeane Garofalo is," Media Research Center President and NewsBusters Publisher Brent Bozell told viewers the next morning on Saturday's "Fox & Friends."

Bozell noted that Garofalo conveniently forgets that President Obama began office in January with a stunning 83 percent approval rating, before citing more evidence of Garofalo's wackiness:
This is a woman who also says of people exercising their First Amendment rights, she's also called them functionally retarded.... She also believes, by the way, she's absolutely convinced that George Bush stole the 2000 election. Fine. She also believes, unquestionably, that he also then turned around and stole the 2004 election as well. I'm sorry, this woman is a crackpot. And I think, by the way, she's perfect for Keith Olbermann on MSNBC.
