Rosie Rides Again!

I have no idea why I am keeping track of her stupid statements but I can’t seem to help myself. That’s right, Rosie’s done it again. Clay Aiken, the American Idol star was on some talk show and he put his hand over his co-host, Kelly Ripa’s mouth (whoever she is) at some point. Looks like he did it innocently enough but she copped an attitude about it. The next day on “The View” Rosie played a clip. Kelly kind of scolded Clay for doing it and then said, “I don’t know where that hand’s been, honey!” The tape pauses and Rosie inserts her foot in her mouth once again: “Now listen, to me, that’s a homophobic remark.” Here‘s a clip.

What an idiot. How on earth is that a homophobic remark? I’ve said that to straight people in the past. I’ve had it said to me. It has nothing to do with sexual orientation. I’m thankful that every stupid thing I say isn’t recorded and reported on, but she really needs to learn from her mistakes.

Addendum: Despite rumors, Clay has not come out on his sexual orientation one way or the other. Rosie presumed that Kelly believed Clay to be gay.

Rosie the Genius

Yesterday at work I walked past a TV in the cafe and saw the show “The View” was on. It occurred to me to blog a thought on it but I let the thought pass. I was going to say that such a show is a bad idea. It is supposed to be friends having interesting discussions. But how often do you have interesting discussions with your friends? If you’re like me, we hit a good one once a week or so. Not every day. So “The View” means that these people have to work really hard at having an interesting discussion every stinking day.

The result is not brilliant and witty dialogue, it is something that passes for that because the network wants us to think it is brilliant and witty. It is fake. It is a pretense of friendship and intimacy but it isn’t.

So what prompted me to blog on this show after all? Well, you’ve read the title so you know what’s coming. Rosie O’Donnell has once again inserted her foot into her overly large mouth in a public arena. I’ve commented on her previous foibles here. This time she said “Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America where we have a separation of church and state.”

Rosie’s At It Again

Rosie O’Donnell once again shows just how much she understands the intricacies of politics and the gay rights agenda. Key quote: “It will be the first time, except for prohibition, that bigotry has been added to the Constitution”

She’s done this kind of thing before. Either she just doesn’t get it or she’s completely unprepared when the media jam a microphone in her face and ask question. Prohibition is not bigotry and neither is defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman.

Personally, I don’t think the definition of marriage belongs in the Constitution but that is a different discussion.

Vicious, Hateful Comments

Rosie O’Donnell and her lesbian partner Kelli Carpenter on why they rushed to San Francisco to get “married”:

We were both inspired to come here after the sitting president said the vile and vicious and hateful comments he did.

President Bush’s “vile, vicious and hateful” comments:

The union of a man and woman is the most enduring human institution, honored and encouraged in all cultures and by every religious faith. Ages of experience have taught humanity that the commitment of a husband and wife to love and to serve one another promotes the welfare of children and the stability of society. Marriage cannot be severed from its cultural, religious and natural roots without weakening the good influence of society.

Is Rosie over-reacting or is it just me? I read the entire text and I just didn’t find anything in there about homosexuals being evil or anything like it. Here’s another quote from the President’s speech that I found interesting:

Eight years ago, Congress passed, and President Clinton signed, the Defense of Marriage Act, which defined marriage for purposes of federal law as the legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife.
