Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity


No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Helen Thomas, the bigotted White House doyen has announced her retirement, effective immediately.  After being caught on tape voicing her real opinion of Isreal in particular and Jews in general, she chose to retire rather than be booted out of the White House press pool, as the rising tide of anger threatened to wash over her this past weekend. 

That's Robert Gibbs comment  on her...of course her views reflect those of this administration it only remains to be seen if the threat of a war between Turkey and Isreal that is very real and looming in the eastern Mediterreanian Sea will affect the present anti-Israeli stance of this administration.  Here is Ms. Thomas' non-appology statement: 
“I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.”

It's nice to see that she didn't actually get away with this.  The WaPo, NYT and LAT still haven't actually posted any stories on this yet...but they'll now be able to write glowing stories about how wonderful Ms. Thomas' reporting was and her 60 year career...all without mentioning what a horrendous bigot she is.
