Rosie O'Donnell. I Blame Ed McMahon

Which wag stated "Can you quote a yawn?"

Let's take a look at some Rosie moments that make all go fuzzy and warm all over, which, now that I think about that, makes me want to take a shower.
"You know what concerns me? How many Supreme Court judges are

"You know, you can imagine in China it's like, 'Ching-chong, ching-chong.
Danny DeVito. Ching-chong, ching-chong-chong. Drunk. The View.

"There were 15 British sailors and marines who apparently went in to
Iranian waters and they were seized by the Iranians. And I have one thing to
say. Gulf of Tonkin. Google it."

"The British did it on purpose. (They went) into Iranian waters as the U.S.
military builds up on the Iranian border. We will be in Iran before summer as

"655,000 Iraqi civilians dead. Who are the terrorists?" She further
explained, "If you were in Iraq and another country, the United States, the
richest in the world, invaded your country and killed 655,000 of your citizens,
what would you call us?"

I do believe that it's the first time in history that fire has ever melted
steel. I do believe that it defies physics that World Trade Center tower 7 —
building 7, which collapsed in on itself — it is impossible for a building to
fall the way it fell without explosives being involved. World Trade Center 7.
World Trade Center 1 and 2 got hit by planes — 7, miraculously, the first time
in history, steel was melted by fire. It is physically impossible. To say that
we don’t know that it imploded, that it was an implosion and a demolition, is
beyond ignorant. Look at the films, get a physics expert here [on the show] from
Yale, from Harvard, pick the school — [the collapse] defies reason.

"Well, then, get away from the fear. Don't fear the terrorists. They’re
mothers and fathers."

"All right, but wait. When you go to war, we have the United–we have the
United Nations, and the United Nations is the one who says, as the world voice,
what they condone and what they condemn. And the U.N. had said we could not do it, and every other nation in the world, besides England, who’s on our side and
in our pocket, they said it was a bad idea. "

"I believe in state sponsored terrorism. I believe there is government
sponsored terrorism in every nation in the world, including ours."

"It was interesting to note that President Bush was flying to Virginia Tech
today and took him a week to get to ... Katrina to visit the victims [...] You
can’t pretend that it’s the same. How many people died in Katrina?"

"You are not allowed to own a gun, and if you do own a gun, I think you
should go to prison."

"It was always my dream to give an old, bald billionaire a boner."

"Eat me."

Not a snowball's chance in Hell Rosie. Not even if you had a billion. Not even if you weren't bat crap crazy. Which you are. You need help.

Oh, Ed McMahon's daughter told him about Rosie and he put her on his "talent" show. Shame on you Ed.

aLgore: Weapon of Mass Distraction

Al Gore slams 'trivialities and nonsense' in news media

Former US vice president Al Gore on Friday criticized the "trivialities and nonsense" of celebrity gossip in the media and called on people to focus instead on issues like Iraq and climate change.

Gore, who is promoting his new book "The Assault on Reason," made the comments at a book signing in New York, where he was treated to a rock star reception by more than 1,300 cheering and screaming fans.

"What is it about our collective decision-making process that has led us to
this state of affairs where we spend much more time in the public forum talking
about -- or receiving information about --
Britney Spears shaving her head or Paris Hilton going to jail?" Gore asked.

He lamented what he described as the "destruction of the boundary between news and entertainment" and said the United States was "vulnerable as a democracy to mass and continuing distraction."

The guy that sweats like a perp on Meth and jets his circus around the world to wow devoted groupies and pimps for a statue from the Hollywood crowd now wants to draw the line between news and entertainment?
That's Chutzpah the size of a pair of brass bowling balls. Somewhat like, "A boy, having just been convicted of murdering his parents, begs the judge for leniency because he is an orphan."

Memorial Day Weekend and The Troops

This is something I try to always do. When there is no drink or food involved, without making a big deal out of it, I shake hands and thank them for their service.

Instapundit said: Last night while hanging out in the bar with Rand Simberg and Dale Amon (of Samizdata), I saw some British soldiers at the other end. I had the waitress send them a round of drinks. She wasn't supposed to tell them who did it, but apparently those guys are good at extracting information and their CO came over to say thanks. He said that it meant a lot to his men: they don't get a lot of support from the public in Britain and that they like it when they're in the U.S. for training, etc., because the American public is more supportive. I thought that was kind of sad, actually, but I was glad to do something for them. When I'm out and see military folks I often try to pick up their tab anonymously; this is the first time someone's blabbed. I encourage InstaPundit readers to do the same if the mood strikes you. I think it's appreciated, and not just because of the free food or drink.

If you haven't yet done this, Memorial Day Weekend is as good a time as ever to start. Thank them for their mission too. That way you won't be mistaken for a "troop supporting" Democrat or Ron Paul Libertarian.
