Everything's coming up rosie

Well, in case you don't read the news, the latest development in liberal politics is that Rosie O'Donnell might be next in line to have her own talk radio show. All the world needs is one more emotional, irrational, rabid liberal (who owns a gay-family cruise line) screaming on the air. Didn't she learn her lesson when she shamelessly attacked Tom Selleck on her show? No one wants to listen to her. She was a fun and delightful person to watch until she went all Janeane Garofalo on us.

I don't know about you but I'm tired of the hate-filled wannabe rhetoric of the left. Dennis Prager had an amazing insight the other day. He said that he has always desired to respect his opposition. Though they may disagree, he's always liked disagreeing with respectable, dignified human beings. But he said that these elections have truly shown that our opposition is not worthy of respect--that they're truly awful people, and that it's against his nature to dislike people, but he has no other choice. I'm paraphrasing, of course, but that was the gist.

I agree. It's ideal to fight against a worthy foe, so to speak. But they aren't out there. Either they're with us, or with the terrorists, to quote GW. If politics were more intellectual, maybe it wouldn't be so bad, but it's all been reduced to the screaming and name-calling of 5-year-olds, and I'm tired of it. So, Rosie, no offense, but I hope your show is very unsucessful, for your own sake. You don't want to go down in history as one who stirred up hate and strife. Or do you?

In other news: Sinead O'Conner has pleaded for the world to stop making fun of her. So, guys, in case you were tempted to poke fun at Mother Bernadette Mary (wait she's stopped going by that) well, just don't. Poor Sinead. Maybe thinking through your tearing up a picture of the Pope (and subsequently becoming an "ordained Catholic priest") and ranting against the United States on international tv might have done you a bit of good. Well, hindsight's 20/20, they say.
