Coffee and a few drinks with Bill today, soon. Not a moment too soon. Too much of not much at all has caused a need to get out.
The news today is good. Very good. Loud mouth buffoon, Rosie O'Donnell, is leaving the View. While I never bother with the show, her crybaby rants will get less press time. I read papers, all day, all day. A Rosie-free day is a good day. Then, I can read about the Cubs' squandering games, something more upbeat.
Her argument was that she was not pushed off, but could not agree on a contract. Good riddance. She was unwilling to commit to three years, she says, and could not see a future there beyond a year. I suspect
O'Donnell is not a journalist, or a comedian. She's only an entertainer in the way we are entertained by a sour stomach. Not me.
Her jealousy that Donald Trump has better money, better hair and better broads than her became famous, but that's probably ending. Her vitriolic racist and intolerant mouth-offs looked at first to be welcome, but not for long.
Barbara Walters has long defended O'Donnell, but not for any reason I can ascertain. Ratings? O'Donnell brought the Jerry Springer audience into View, and ratings sell ads, and ads make Walter money. At least Springer knows he's a media whore. No pretense on his show.
As she leaves the View, she leaves public sight. Too much light on a roach causes them to scurry. Let the light shine, and keep this one away.
