Janeane Garofalo, desperate for any attention, decides to go after tea party market - 04/16/09

... and so on. However, ex-cutie Janeane Garofalo is trying a different tack: appear on the Keith Olbermann show and say completely outrageous things about the tea parties in a desperate bid for attention. And, it's worked, at least in the present case and in the case of HotAir which has her vile, spiteful, hateful remarks here. And, I say that as someone who's said some pretty caustic things about...
