Rosie O'Donnell Already Has Offers From NBC And CBS; Hits A New Low Today

You realize your vote counts precisely as much as Rosie's fans' votes, right?

Why wouldn't you want this retard on your network? Here she calls the troops stupid and terrorists "phantom people" who either do not exist or are not a threat or both, and makes the claim (unchallenged even by Elizabeth) that we've "taken" the Iraqis' oil, and, I think, the Iranians' oil too.

She also insists, by implication, that there's no evidence the Iranians are developing highly-enriched uranium, despite their proud announcements every three weeks about all the highly-enriched uranium they're devoloping.

Ian digests the various lunacies offered up today, in case you can't bear to watch.

More... From the first link. The decision to leave, this gossip says, was entirely Rosie's, and ABC really did want to keep her. They really wanted to keep her:

On Jan. 10, I reported that O'Donnell decided to leave the show because Walters did not defend her to Donald Trump. Indeed, Trump maliciously announced to the press during that time that Walters had expressed her unhappiness with Rosie to him.

Over the Christmas holiday and leading up to Rosie's return in early January, Walters didn't even call O'Donnell to express her support. Rosie, who viewed Barbara as a mentor and icon, was shaken and disappointed. Walters had let her down.

O'Donnell, who has millions of dollars and a happy family at home, decided then that she didn't need this kind of headache.

At that point, ABC stepped in. They offered, sources say, to buy out Walters from "The View," give O'Donnell the show and have Walters make guest appearances. But Walters would not agree to this deal.

ABC offered Rosie a three-year contract to stay with the show. Rosie asked for a one-year deal and $10 million. ABC execs, perhaps looking for stability because they knew Elisabeth Hasselbeck was pregnant, wanted a guarantee from Rosie. They couldn't get it. O'Donnell decides to leave in June easily making her the victor in the standoff.

So, basically, you can be, as Trump tells us every three days, a fat loser slob who is disgusting to look at and an idiot who gets no ratings and furthermore is pretty repulsive -- can you imagine her poor wife looking at her naked? -- and still get bidding wars from the networks.
