"Tammy BRUCE" referring to THE SOVIET UNION, multiple times
She's a, what, "Conservative internet talkshow host" being hysterical to O'LOOFAH about taking away the Shrub permanent missile site in Poland, saying that this was "Poland's defense against attacks from the SOVIET UNION" and "On the anniversary of the SOVIET UNION invading".

And the Fauxers don't even know the difference.

2. I'd call that stupid excuse for a woman an "asswipe", but
that would be an egregious insult to asswipes.

5. Wki Bio shows a very confused person: "progressive feminist, openly Gay, gun" AND now a wingnut11

**********QUOTE********
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tammy_Bruce
.... Bruce's Web site describes her as "an openly gay, pro-choice, gun owning, pro-death penalty "progressive feminist" who has voted for presidents as diverse as Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.

During the 1992 election season she worked on the first Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) senatorial campaigns.<1> In 2003 Bruce was appointed to serve on California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's Transition Team after the successful recall election against then-Governor Gray Davis. ....

For seven years, Bruce served as president of the Los Angeles chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) (1990-1996). Bruce served two years on NOW's board of directors, but later criticized the organization in a book. ...

In 1996, the NOW Executive Board voted nearly unanimously to censure Bruce for what it claimed were "racially insensitive comments" during the O.J. Simpson murder trial<5>. After months of infighting, Bruce resigned as president of Los Angeles NOW in June 1996. <6> Bruce claimed that the censure was due to her focus on domestic violence, as opposed to defense attorney Johnnie Cochran's "racial issues" trial argument.<4> Since then, Bruce has written about the dispute in her critique on what she sees as the failings of NOW, and the left in general. ....

Bruce holds a bachelor's degree in Political Science from the University of Southern California. In the past, Bruce described herself as a "lifelong Democrat",<9> but FEC records show she has since 2005 contributed primarily to Republicans,<10> and she has stated on both her radio program and blog that she is now registered as a "Decline-to-State" as of February, 2008. <11> She considers herself an independent conservative.

Tammy Bruce's Journey


The politics have changed, but the style remains the same.

Cathy Young | August/September 2003

.... ...unlike, say, her recovering Leninist friend David Horowitz, Bruce denies that her beliefs have undergone any significant evolution. "The funny thing is that my politics haven't changed at all," she tells me. What really happened, she says, is that she finally saw through the "charade" of the left's rhetoric about empowering women and other groups. Bruce, who now calls herself a classical liberal, insists that she is "still very proud" of her work at NOW. ....

Unfortunately, her claim to be an independent thinker is compromised by her own unacknowledged contradictions -- and by her penchant for rhetoric straight from the right-wing TelePrompter. ....

While Bruce's politics have changed far more than she is willing to concede, some things haven't changed. She still demonizes her opponents and caricatures their views, and she still paints apocalyptic pictures of the problems that concern her.
