Garofalo Awards Announced at White House Press Dinner

Garofalo Awards Announced at White House Press Dinner

Comedienne-turned-anti-war activist Janeane Garofalo will be among those honored at a ceremony sponsored by the Washington, D.C., chapter of FreeRepublic.com outside tonight's annual White House Correspondents Association Dinner.

The first annual "Garofalo Awards" ceremony will spotlight celebrities who distinguished themselves in recent months with "histrionic predictions of gloom and doom before and/or during Operation Iraqi Freedom [and who] stand head and shoulders above all others for their shrillness, certainty and apocalyptic ravings," a FreeRepublic spokesman told NewsMax.

The award itself - a stuffed ready-to-eat crow on a silver platter - will be given to the top 10 celebrity activists, politicians, pundits and reporters based on votes of FreeRepublic members.

Winners include Garofalo herself, who was the top vote getter based on her bizarre pre-war observation, "We are doomed if we go into this war into the heart of the Arabian world with a U.S.-led effort against world opinion. We are doomed if we do this."

CNN news executive Eason Jordan followed in second place, for his recent confession in a New York Times op-ed piece that he and his network covered up first-hand accounts of Saddam Hussein's torture and execution of innocent civilians.

Other Garafalo Awards winners include:

Fired NBC and National Geographic reporter Peter Arnett

Former U.N. weapons inspector Scott Ritter

Actor Tim Robbins

Columnist Helen Thomas

Former President Bill Clinton
Clinton is being honored with a Garofalo for his for remarks to a New York business group last week where he accused the U.S. of trying to bully the world.

"Our paradigm now seems to be: something terrible happened to us on September 11, and that gives us the right to interpret all future events in a way that everyone else in the world must agree with us," Clinton told the Conference Board. "And if they don't, they can go straight to hell."

Each Garofalo Award recipient will also receive a bottle of red wine vinegar to help wash down the crow dinner.
