Jane Fonda on "Hardball" serving soft apologies

Having just watched an early morning repeat of Jane Fonda’s appearance on Chris Matthews’ “Hardball”, I have a couple of observations. The face looked lifted, the boobs looked fake, the makeup looked too thick, and the views were leftist– But enough about Matthews.

All this chatter lately about Fonda “apologizing” in her new book for going to Vietnam in the early 70’s and buddying up to the North Vietnamese is clearly exaggerated. Jane apologized for nothing at all. As a matter of fact, she ended up defending herself for going. Here’s just one short exchange from the transcript of the program:

MATTHEWS: It seems to me that going to Hanoi didn’t end the war any faster.

FONDA: I went there to try to stop the bombing of the dykes. I knew because it said so in the Pentagon Papers that we were considering destroying the dykes. We got word that the dykes were being bombed.

MATTHEWS: Did it happen?

FONDA: Yes I filmed it! If I just played a small role [in ending the war] I’m proud of that.

Yep, this is clearly a mea culpa.

Jane Fonda proves that the practitioners of Hollywood Bolshevism are kind of like alcoholics– They may stop, but they’re never really cured. The more Jane’s book tour and the interviews drag on, the more the old urges return, and the more she gets caught at midnight desperately attempting to jimmy the lock on the leftist liquor cabinet.
