Working Up a Spit

Jane Fonda has decided that liberating 25 million Iraqis and ending the sadistic regime of Saddam Hussein is a crime that she can no longer remain silent over. She's going on a cross-country tour for surrender:

"I can't go into any detail except to say that it's going to be pretty exciting," she said.

Fonda said her anti-war tour in March will use a bus that runs on "vegetable oil." She will be joined by families of Iraq war veterans and her daughter.

They plan to return to the Santa Fe area, where she was promoting her book, "My Life So Far" on Saturday.

Prompted by a question from the audience, Fonda said war veterans that she has met on a nationwide book tour have encouraged her to break her silence on the Iraq war.

"I've decided I'm coming out," she said.

Vegetable oil? Promoting her book? Exciting? What, isn't she a little ancient and wrinkly for a Barbarella II tour? If not, this seems rather a self-indulgent move. Especially since the van is set to roll in March 2006. Can't let her outrage over American military atrocities rush her to protest when she has to coordinate it with her bong-water-powered VW van tour!

As for coming out, can anybody really be surprised that someone who takes pride in her role in dooming Southeast Asia to the joys of communist misrule, mass murder, poverty, and barbarity is against the Iraq War? Were these people misled by her multi-millionaire lifestyle and anti-PC Atlanta Braves tomahawk chopping into thinking she'd sit a tough war out?

As my hatred for her has faded, it is a comfort really that she rekindles the physical reaction of disgust that I once felt so easily for her.

God, she sickens me.
