The idiot of the week is Tom Hayden. How come?
An awful article he wrote at The Nation. I'm not even linking to the garbage. Go to that crap-ass site or Google "Tom Hayden Mitt Romney Peace."
Tom Hayden suddenly cares about peace.
I missed him at the protest of the Drone War. I didn't hear call out the war on Libya or Syria.
But now he cares about peace.
Not in terms of stopping the Drone War, mind you.
But if you want peace, the liar tells you, then you vote for Barack. Mitt will not bring you peace.
The fact that Barack will not bring you peace is not a fact that he wants to address.
He's such a liar.
And do we need to hear from him?
It's as ridiculous when he plays 'us' as the 99%. He's filthy wealthy.
Not because he earned it. He just made Jane Fonda fork over millions.
Jane did all the earning.
And he didn't have the decency not to cheat on her.
Then he uses the community property aspect of California law to basically pull up in a Brinks truck and leave with tons of the money Jane Fonda earned.
I can't stand people like that.
He has a life with an attractive, smart, funny woman and they have a child together and she pours all of her money into his political career and it's never enough for him. He has to cheat on her, then he has to have mistresses, then he just knows it's love.
And taking her money only made him more trash.
He's not a man. She probably would never insult him that way but, as a man, I will. You don't break a woman's heart by betraying her and then say, "Oh, and I want half your money!"
Not if you have any self-respect.
Think how awful it must feel to have the money he does and know that he never earned it and know that he stole it. That's what he did. He betrayed his wife and then stole from her in the divorce.
Jane Fonda's gone on to write books, bestselling books, get praised for her return to Broadway, revitalize her fitness career and return to acting. She's got a lively life that's still going strong. And I hope it's happy because she deserves it.
But a dead beat who betrayed her and then stole from her?
He deserves to be as unhappy as he looks like he is.
