Rosie: forgotten but not gone
You might remember a corpulent comedienne from the 90s who later lost her mind, a lawsuit, a ton of dough on a Broadway flop, not to mention millions of fans. Yes, Rosie O'Donnell is in my hometown of Halifax this week, gushing over the glories of gayness and the evils of Bush.
Every time she opnes her mouth, Bush gets more appealing.
Boy, for the sake of a pat on the head by a has-been celebrity, some Canadians are willing to ignore just about anything. Like when Rosie angrily told an employee undergoing chemotherapy that "liars get cancer."
Or when she ambushed guest Tom Selleck on her show for his NRA support, before it was discovered she authorized her own bodyguard to carry a concealed weapon. (I love the smell of hypocrisy in the morning: Guns and gun owners are evil, unless they're protecting your own bacon.)
Or when she had a doll called Baby Go Boom on her show, which, when it was writhing on the studio floor, she commanded a dog to chew up the baby having the seizure. Really funny stuff, especially for families with epileptic children.
