Neener, neener, Janeaner
ABC television is developing a sitcom to star outspoken war critic Janeane Garofalo as what else? a TV producer. No pilot script is available, so I have no idea whether Garofalo's character is the sort of person who, say, considers dictators like the late Saddam Hussein to be the moral equivalent of the American President, but at least one prowar group is threatening to boycott the network if Garofalo's show airs: "We do not wish to see the faces of liberal Hollywood," said a statement emailed to ABC.
Actually, her face isn't her best feature, but that's another issue. I have always been a Garofalo fan, but it's been increasingly difficult in recent months as she's sunk further into Hollywood's moral, um, quagmire.
Meanwhile, LGF's Charles Johnson would like to know if Janeane is planning to apologize to Dubya as promised.
