3. Oh yeah, I saw her during the election
She's a far right winger.

Btw, I can't stand Glenn Beck so I'll take your word for it.

4. Oh yeah, along with John Corbett (Chris in the Morning)
AKA, the paramour of Bo Derek. All lifelong GOP.

8. John Corbett's GOP? wouldn't playing a progressive rub off on you?
It's not like Turner and Corbett were contemptuous of their characters. How can you be a decent method actor and not identify enough with your character to at least empathize with them? And empathy negates GOPism.

Does . . .not . . . compute. . .

12. They are both really shitty actors...
Her character was supposed to be from Grosse Pointe, but had a Texas twang
His character was supposed to be white trash from West Virginia, but had that "from nowhere" actor accent
That used to drive me crazy

13. They're serviceable
Corbett is OK as a romantic male lead - lots of women think he's dreamy, including Mrs. Solomon.

Luckily i look similar to him - just shorter.

24. I'm still keeping the blonde. I cover the gray just about every month.
Most of the blondes I know are quite smart and well educated. I only know two who are actually dingbats, and one isn't a natural blonde and never was. The other is a real sweetheart.

But whatever our hair color, we all do have our "blonde" moments. But we only like hear that from another blonde, and definitely not a guy. :)

10. blonde women under 50--the only demographic in America one can still mock with impunity
Mustn't bring it up, though, if you're a blonde, because then you're just showing how ignorant you are of all of your invisible privilege.

And Janine was a blonde--on several Dallas episodes in the early 80s.

26. What is this "invisible privilege" of which you speak?
And you may want to be careful with that impunity assumption. Most of the blondes I know are sharp cookies. I'm just sayin'. :)

15. Rightwing crazy is the last refuge for actors without jobs
When is the last time you saw Janine Turner on TV? Or in a movie? Well, now she's on Glenn Beck. Hey, it's a gig. She's getting some exposure. Most people had forgotten about her. Now, she's got the Palin crowd hot for her. Better than nothing if you're a faded celebrity.

18. She's pushing videos of something she calls "Christian Yoga."
You know, sanitized from Satan and Pagan influences. Google her.

20. Fundamentalists argue against yoga.
due to the Eastern influence.
Janine should be pushing Christian mall walking. Much more in keeping with rightwing values.

29. "Christian Yoga"? That's like "Baha'i Karate"
These people are nuts.
