The odd ignorances of Janeane Garofalo


I've not been keeping a tally; but it seems almost every time I tune in, JG exhibits ignorance of some fact that, from what one learns on the air about her reading habits (generally advanced), one would expect her to know.

For instance, she didn't know who Adolf Schicklgruber was; or what CBS stood for.

And, just now, she was ranting about PBS' political shows after the departure of Bill Moyers, reading an article (for the first time on air!) which said that the relevant legislation had set a cap of 40% on Federal government contributions to public broadcasting - and needed the producer behind the glass to explain what that meant.

Freaky!
