Rosie is used to being in liberal circles, cheered as she spouts conspiracy theories and spews hatred and condescension towards our troops by BaBa WaWa, Joy Behar, and the studio audience. Did no one else but me notice that, before the blowout between Rosie and Elisabeth, Joy pulled out a list of what she calls "facts" to be used as reasons to impeach President Bush? And on top of that, the audience cheered.
What I want to know is why this studio audience, and viewers across America, want to hear Rosie O'Donnell and Joy Behar's views on politics. They are celebrities who don't know the first thing about what's going on in the world beyond what they hear on CNN or read on Al Gore's "I Hate George Bush" mailing list. I mean, when Rosie went off on how on 9-11 it was the first time fire ever melted steel, I would think that would have been enough for people to realize the sheer stupidity of that woman!
Seriously... fire has never melted steel before? Really, Rosie?
Poor Elisabeth really has her work cut out for her there, and usually she's polite and well-spoken, albeit soft-spoken, unlike the rest of the panel. I was so happy to actually see her put her foot down and defend herself, finally, against Rosie.
So now, Rosie is harping on and on about it on her blog, saying that she hasn't spoken to Elisabeth and probably won't. How sad for Elisabeth (or not). She also says that the director -- the director! -- of The View has turned it into the Jerry Springer Show.
Rosie, Rosie, Rosie. Do you not understand? You turned it into the Jerry Springer Show. You, with your boisterous arguments and ridiculous theories, you with your childish, kindergarten feuds with Donald Trump... you lowered and debased the show, if that was even possible.
And look at the maturity difference between Elisabeth and Rosie. While Elisabeth has publicly said that she hoped her friendship with Rosie wouldn't be over because they had one heated argument, Rosie is going on record saying she doesn't want to speak to her ever again.
I guess to be in Rosie's circle, you gotta be drinking the Kool-Aid.
If someone could just put duct tape over her mouth for the rest of her life, so the rest of us wouldn't have to listen to her moronic drivel, it would be a public service.
