Rosie staffer defaces Elisabeth

You can say one thing for Rosie O'Donnell - her staffers are loyal. In the wake of the View moderator's on-air brawl with co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck earlier this week, an O'Donnell staffer was reportedly escorted out of the ABC building yesterday after being caught drawing mustaches of pictures of Hasselbeck that hang in the show's studios. A rep for the network confirmed in a statement that "photographs at The View's offices were defaced. Rosie O'Donnell was not in the building. ABC Legal and Human Resources are investigating the matter." No comment has been made about who the culprit might be, but media reports indicate that O'Donnell's head writer is responsible.

Rosie cannot handle a reasoned discussion. While this may be the case for many on both sides of the fence, she elevates it to the point of insanity. Apparently, like many these days, she believes that the loudest and last argument means that it was the best argument. She threw out the question that does lead a reasonable person to infer that she believes we are acting as nothing but terrorists in the case of Iraq.

Case in point. Rosie’s citing of the 650K figure from a recent study tells me that she looked no further into the study than the post-invasion number. Rosie’s insinuation is that the US is responsible for all of these deaths and that all of the victims were innocents.

What are a few things that Rosie fails to mention?

* The estimated death count range of the report is between 400K and 900K.

* The researchers did not qualify whether or not the death count was for an innocent, an insurgent, a fighter, a criminal, etc. It was not only for innocent men, women, and children.

* The total percentage of violent deaths attributed to coalition (includes the full coalition…not just the US) action was 31%. Not 100% as Rosie insinuates.

* 50K deaths are reported to have occurred without violence or due to normal accidents.

These are just a few of the things Rosie doesn’t mention. She married herself to the 650K number and ran with it. She truly does need to stand on her own statements. It’s not Elisabeth’s responsibility to explain Rosie’s comments.

Based on how she responds to disagreement, opposing Rosie is equivalent to being a close-minded religious nut…being bigoted…being unintelligent…you name it. For some reason, there are people in the world who believe that “being true to yourself” or “standing up for what you believe” is the same as being a well-informed participant in the discussion. This is not true.

Rosie is proof.
