Helen on FOX

I can't believe she did this, but she did: Helen went on the Fox Across America show (I've just finished listening to it) to discuss yesterday's nastiness, and I kind of think she rocked it. No um-ing or uh-ing, a few delightful quips back at the show's host, stated her positions without letting him throw her, and seemed to be having fun with the whole thing. Very jealous of that beautifully clear speaking voice, too.

Helen Worship Level in this house right now: DANGEROUSLY HIGH.

UPDATE: Rob to the rescue! He's got the interview for you to listen to here. Please right-click that link and choose "Save As..." rather than clicking it directly, to conserve the gentleman's bandwidth.

I'll be looking for it when I get home.

I hope someone finds a permalink to a replay of it--I listened to it live. It was funny: Once the interviewer realized Helen wasn't the fresh helping of roast moonbat he'd been promised, he ended the interview. The best part was when he said, "Hmm, you and I actually agree on more than I thought we would--" Hahahaha! Kiss your credibility goodbye, Michelle.

If you see a permalink for it, please post it. I wanted to listen to it, but didn't realize it was on until it was over.

I've stayed away from political blogs for so long. I decide to catch up a little and see that things are still the same as when I left them.

Helena's comments are off, so I'll just say to her here: Rock on, girl.

Michele said...

Helen. Sorry about the extra a.

I'm just plain pissed at Malkin. She has a very high soapbox, and she could use it to further libertairian causes. She uses it to Coulterize the debate on pretty mcuh anyhting she touches.

I agree with you, Ilyka, Helen acquitted herself very well. I also agree that the interviewer wasn't prepared for a reasonable, articulate person so he had to change the subject to profiling, not travel concerns, delays, detentions, harassment, etc... Good job, Helen.

One other thing about that "beautifully clear speaking voice":

I must confess that, for once, someone sounded exactly as I imagined they would sound. If that's not how you really sound, Helen, don't tell me.

Hey, on a totally unrelated note: I found you through the comments section on Feministe, and I think your blog is priceless. Am linking now. Huzzah.

Goddam, but Malkin is vile. Vile.

Just listened to the interview. Helen was very articulate and she does have a nice speaking voice. Kudos to Helen for taking lemons and making lemonade. :-)

I think we're all still feeling the void you left, Michele. Then again, given that the inmates are apparently running the asylum anymore, it's not like we'd have any business begging you to come on back inside, is it?

"Save us! Save us from teh crazy!"

If I had any interests as cool as punk rock and fast cars, I'd blog about that too. Demand for Andy Gibb blogs remains low, however. Can't imagine why.

She's so the opposite of me. I'd have been a stuttering fool, but she really seemed to be rolling with it all like a pro.
