Rosie: I Used To Drink And Drive, And I'm Not Terribly Ashamed Of That

On one hand, it's a confession of a sin which, as she says, most have been guilty of at one time or another. So it is honesty, which can't be faulted.

One can fault the suggestion that it's something kids are permitted to do, and should only be expected to drive while sober after reaching the legal drinking age:

"It doesn't make it the right thing to do, and hopefully as you get to be an adult..."

Not really the most outrageous thing someone could say, mitigated by some honest realism on the point, and yet I suspect that most other folks -- especially those on the right -- would get a lot more heat than she'll get for expressing such a cavalier attitude towards drunk driving.

I also suspect that for the mentally and emotionally unstable Rosie, with her "self-destructive" personality type as Trump notes (right after noticing her "obese loser slob" personality type), "driving drunk" means something different than it does for most of us.

Most of us consider driving drunk to be driving impaired. I think she means driving shit-faced and barely able to stand.

"I remember being 21 years old coming home from gigs, totally not in any capacity to drive."

Yup. There it is. In the interests of disclosure, I remember driving in that sort of state exactly once. I was pulled over for drunk driving.

The weird thing is I passed the field sobriety test -- partly because for some reason I was suddenly able to recite the alphabet backwards with perfect fluency.
