’24' cast member Janeane Garofalo: Show was ploy to ‘frighten’ public of a Hillary presidency
The Daily Caller ^ | January 5, 2013 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 01/05/2013 6:46:55 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

It’s been two and a half years since the last episode of Fox’s thriller television series “24,” but the show is evidently still fresh on liberal comedienne and former “24″ star Janeane Garofalo’s mind.

In an appearance on the January 3 episode of the “Going Off Track” podcast, Garofalo said show creator and executive producer Joel Surnow picked certain cast members to make liberals — particularly Hillary Clinton — look bad.

“That was actually a joke I think Joel Surnow was trying to plant,” Garofalo said. “He hated my politics and Air America. He’s a real right-winger. He actually worked with the Republican Party producing propaganda campaigns with them.”

On “24,” Garofalo played FBI agent Janis Gold, a character who would often voice displeasure with the use of torture as an anti-terrorism tactic.

“Actually, Rush Limbaugh and Lynne Cheney would visit the set and stuff like that,” she continued. “But he wanted to make me look like a weak ‘liberal’ on the show. My character got yelled at a number of times by [series protagonist] Jack [Bauer]. Then it got sidetracked by the writers’ strike. He didn’t get to play out the whole thing he had in mind for my character, because there was a writers’ strike. … Joel Surnow I think wanted to humiliate me.”(continued)

Liberal morality. Isn’t it beautiful to behold? Shameless and brainless all at once.

Garafolo: "I think (Surnow) wanted to humiliate me.”

She does this to herself each time she opens that mouth of hers, she just is too stupid to know it.

Is she forgetting about Powers Boothe's gung-ho acting president?

Or what about Gregory Itzen's Richard Nixon look-alike Charles Logan?

But isn't is ironic that "24" began it's run with season one being about the administration of a strong and patriotic black president? The kind that might have made America proud and paved the way for more to follow.

Fugly in mind & body...
Can you imagine?:
Seeing something like that show up with your son for a family event?
Seeing something like later in life as some poor unfortunate kids grandmother?
Seeing something like in any position of authority over ordinary citizens?

Gagafolo is as hateful a loony leftard as any out there.
Her type would truely love to see any conservative sent to a re-education camp,
& failing that, a red-splattered wall and a blindfold.

I was impressed with Mark Wahlberg talking about his tattoos and having them removed so his kids wouldn’t think they were cool. In fact he took his kids to the removal sessions to show them how painful it was. They also became an issue as an actor.

A male actor can probably get away with the tats better than a female.

However, the sickle and crescent finger tatoos were easy to see. She was a joke on 24 and IMO, her appearance signaled the beginning of the end. What were they thinking hiring this psychotic paranoid freak?

LOL! I scarcely remember Gooferello even being on the show but to listen to her whining, the whole purpose of the show was to use her as a liberal foil. "It was all about me me me me me."

“But he wanted to make me look like a weak ‘liberal’ on the show. My character got yelled at a number of times by [series protagonist] Jack [Bauer]. Then it got sidetracked by the writers’ strike. He didn’t get to play out the whole thing he had in mind for my character, because there was a writers’ strike. … Joel Surnow I think wanted to humiliate me.”

Show lost me early in Day 6 when Valencia goes up in smoke, and Jack drives across town to beat up his brother Phillip.

No wait, it gets better.

At Phillip's house you can see the mushroom cloud through the window -- glass intact, btw -- about five miles away. No mention of fallout, no people running around screaming outside, no car tires squealing.

I literally lol'd and changed the channel.

The show was pure camp. I did see this episode (I only saw about three) and all I did was laugh.

I am reminded of time the time Garafalo was taken to task and put in her place by basically a sports guy — Brian Kilmeade on Fox & Friends.

She never returned to Fox & Friends, IIRC.

and Jack drives across town

What I remember was that EVERYTHING was always 20 minutes away.

That gave just enough clock time for the B-story and still have time for Bauer to arrive for the cliff-hanger.

"Seems like every project she gets involved in fails."

They tried to write her into the Seinfeld script as his girlfriend once. That lasted through about three commercials.

Par for the course for her. Every show she’s on, the producers are personally out to get her. In his book about his time on “Saturday Night Live,” Jay Mohr describes how she wouldn’t work with the writers to come up with sketch ideas and compete to pitch them, like everyone else did. But when she didn’t get enough air time to suit her, she complained to the media about how the people on SNL were all sexists who didn’t want to put women on the air.

Oddly enough, immediately after she left, Cheri Oteri, Molly Shannon and Ana Gasteyer all came on the show and became major players with a lot of air time, despite being female. Of course, they were all actually funny, which is probably the real issue.
