Well, I knew if I waited, Rosie O'Fat Ass wouldn't let me down. I tuned into "The View" about 11:10 est and Joy Behar, a staunch democrat, was reading a list of why President Bush is a poor leader, most of which are true (and I'm a republican). It was semi-serious and semi-comical, which I like. Elisabeth Hasselbeck, a Bush supporter, said something about some of the good things Bush has done, which were also true. She further stated something about the war and that Iraq was a threat to our troops.
O'Fat Ass said, "Do you believe that Iraq is our enemy? Did we invade Iraq or did Iraq invade us? To which, Hasselbeck said that the people of Iraq are not our enemy, but Iraq harbors terrorists and the like.
Well, I hate to say this but, I completely agree with O"Fat Ass. We have no business in Iraq and it's costing us in deaths and injuries to our troops, not to mention the financial implications. I do, however, support the President, no matter who he is, and the United States of America. I don't, even by inference, regard our troops as terrorists.
Rosie then went on to say that she didn't want to get into it, because the media would misquote and distort her statements, as she thought they did when the media reported that O'Fat Ass insinuated that our troops were terrorists. She said the end result would be, "Fat, out-spoken, lesbian attacks poor, little Christian"(Duh). Rosie asked Elisabeth, "Do you think I believe our troops are terrorists? Yes or no ?" Hasselbeck said, "You have to defend your insinuations." In the interim, the guest host and Joy Behar continually attempted to calm things down and change the subject, to no avail. Rosie was quiet for a moment (what?) changed the subject and went to commercial (fade to black).
What Rosie fails to understand is that most people do not like big-mouthed, biased people, who tend to obnoxiously dominate the conversation, while pushing their own agenda. I really don't care about the escapades of you and your "partner" or anyone's mates during a conversation about peanut butter. Stick to the theme and leave your personal beliefs at home (you done, now? yeah.)
