The Rosie O'Donnell Watch - Shooting Fish in a Barrel

She's baaaack. Is this a desperate bid for attention...dressing up her 4 year old daughter with a cartridge belt?. After all, she's been off the air for a month. We at the Neville awards think she may be trying to pimp for the terrorists. She did say "Don't fear the terrorists...they are mothers and fathers."

Time for another session on the upside down swing? Perhaps an intervention? A call to child protective services? Anybody?

Thank God it's over. It was getting tedious, pathetic and predictable. Ironically, after holding her fire for months and taking Rosie's endless bullying, Hasselbeck was able to destroy Rosie and her MoveOn/DailyKos propaganda rants in just 10 minutes. Like most bullies Rosie caved like a house of cards. After the 'so for three weeks you can say all the Republican crap you want' and the 'big, fat, lesbian, loud Rosie—attacks innocent, pure, Christian Elisabeth' remarks we only wish that Hasselbeck had taken Rosie's challenge to accuse her of calling the troops 'terrorists'. Elisabeth probably has too much class to get roped in to that trap......but we at the Neville Awards will gladly get roped in. Rosie accused our troops of being terrorists. Rosie is an America-hating, Christian-bashing, terrorist-enabling, self-loathing, deeply disturbed angry woman who was given a national platform by ABC to 'work out' her neurotic issues for all to see. We wrote the following a month ago when Rosie first announced her "retirement" from ABC:

We had hoped she would have been the gift that kept on giving. Apparently ABC felt otherwise. Perhaps the final straw was her typically classless performance at the Matrix awards. The multiple Neville Award recipient is still a big fat (can you say double-wide) target and we at The Neville Awards are not above a little gloating, piling on, rubbing salt. We have the feeling she's not really going away altogther. Maybe exile on cable with Bill Maher.

The last dust-up between Rosie and Elisabeth -- too much to transcribe here so watch and enjoy

Rosie On Iraqi War Stats:

O’DONNELL: I haven't -- I just want to say something. 655,000 Iraqi civilians are dead. Who are the terrorists?

HASSELBECK: Who are the terrorists?

O’DONNELL: 655,000 Iraqis -- I'm saying you have to look, we invaded --

HASSELBECK: Wait, who are you calling terrorists now? Americans?

O’DONNELL: I'm saying if you were in Iraq, and the other country, the United States, the richest in the world, invaded your country and killed 655,000 of your citizens, what would you call us?

HASSELBECK: Are we killing their citizens or are their people also killing their citizens?

O’DONNELL: We're invading a sovereign nation, occupying a country against the U.N.

After implying that they are terrorists, Rosie claimed to speak for the American people.

"Because people no longer- The vast majority of Americans no longer are falling for the trick of the bad terrorist are out there to get us."

Elisabeth Hasselbeck then turned the tables on Rosie and asked several times if the comedian "believes in terrorism." Just as she would not answer Bill O'Reilly's question if she wants America to win in Iraq, she does not answer the question until she finally says there is "government sponsored terrorism" including in the USA.

HASSELBECK: Do you not believe in terrorism?

O’DONNELL: I believe, Elisabeth, that 6,000 dead Americans from 9/11 and from this war is a lot less than 655,000 dead Iraqis.

HASSELBECK: But do you believe in terrorism?

O’DONNELL: I believe every human life is equal.

HASSELBECK: Do you believe there is terrorism?

O’DONNELL: I believe in state sponsored terrorism. I believe there is government sponsored terrorism by every nation in the world, including ours.

Rosie on 9/11:

...I do believe it's the first time in history that fire has melted steel - I do believe that it defies physics for the World Trade Center 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.

One and two got hit by planes, 7 miraculously the first time in history, steel was melted by fire - it is physically impossible," states O'Donnell.

I don't know but to say we don't know and it was imploded in a demolition is beyond ignorant, look at the films get a physics expert here from Yale, from Harvard, pick the school, it defies reason.

   Rosie On The Military:

The May 1 edition of "The View" marked the fourth anniversary of President Bush's famous "mission accomplished" announcement with Rosie O'Donnell's predictable rants against the war and the administration. The co-host mysteriously claimed Afghanistan had nothing to do with September 11 and downplayed the Al Qaeda threat, claiming it is simply a U.S. government scare tactic. Additionally, Rosie, with the aide of guest co-host Ricki Lake, followed Charles Rangel and Andy Rooney to assert that U.S. soldiers are not patriots, but losers who join out of desperation.

O'DONNELL: Wait, can I just say something? Why do people enlist in the Army?

RICKI LAKE: To get an education, and they're poor-

O'DONNELL: Thank you.

LAKE: -and that's the only way to get one.

O'DONNELL: The vast majority- Yes, Elisabeth. It's true!

No, it's not. According to a recent study by the Heritage Foundation, military enlistees are "better educated, wealthier, and more rural on average than their civilian peers." Additionally, "recruits have a higher percentage of high school graduates" and "the distribution of household income of recruits is noticably higher than the entire youth population." Of course, facts don't matter to Rosie O'Donnell. After all, fire can't melt steel.

Token conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck responded harshly and Rosie continued to smear volunteer soldiers before she claimed that she does support the troops.

HASSELBECK: First of all, in the past year, the testing scores of our armed services have been higher than ever, so the education level-

O'DONNELL: You are wrong. We have more convicted felons in the Army because we're allowing them to get through.

HASSELBECK: So they're awful. They're awful then.

O'DONNELL: Elisabeth, I do everything I can to support the troops financially and emotionally. I love them as much as you do. I'm as much of a patriot. I want them home.

The fact free analysis continued as Rosie made this observation.

"Well, listen, Elisabeth, we shouldn't be fighting this war, because we were not attacked by either of the nations we invaded. 19 Saudis were on those planes and we invaded Afghanistan and Iraq."

Perhaps she's forgetting that Afghanistan's then ruling Taliban knowingly harbored Al Qaeda training camps. Also, 15 of the hijackers were Saudi, two were from the United Arab Emirates, one was Egyptian, and one Lebanese. Rosie then continued to downplay the terrorist threat.

HASSELBECK: Do you believe Al Qaeda, do you believe Al Qaeda is alive and working and planning in Iraq?

O'DONNELL: Well, I think there might be some guy on dialysis in a cave, but I don't think he's really a threat.

HASSELBECK: You don't think there are operatives in Al Qaeda, the number one guy--

O'DONNELL: There are terrorists in America too. What about Tim McVee (sic)? What about him? He was a terrorist in America.

HASSELBECK: Does he have cells operating right now in this country?

O'DONNELL: Well, you know, they use those words so that they can scare people "terror" and "cell."

HASSELBECK: Well, guess what, guess what. Terrorists are scary. Terrorists don't need us to help them be scary. They're scary. They're scary people.

Rosie On Separation of Church and State:

In response to the Supreme Court's ruling affirming the partial-birth abortion ban, in an angry tone, Rosie O'Donnell asked, "You know what concerns me? How many of the Supreme Court judges are Catholic, Barbara?" Walters responded, "Five." O'Donnell: "Five. Five are Catholic. Separation of church and state, America." To which O'Donnell replied, "From your everyday life but not hopefully from the foundation of our government. Separation of church and state.

Rosie On Terrorism:

Don't fear the terrorists, they are mothers and fathers.

Rosie On Torture and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed:

I think the man [Khalid Sheikh Mohammed] has been under custody in secret CIA torture prisons and Guantanamo Bay where torture is accepted and allowed - and he finally is the guy who admits to doing everything. They finally found the guy, it's not that guy bin Laden, it's this guy they've had since March 2003. And look, this is the picture they release of him. Doesn't he look healthy? [The photo of an unkempt Mohammed, however, was taken upon his arrest four years ago.] O'Donnell defended Khalid Shaikh Mohammed's 'humanity', remarking terrorists aren't treated like 'humans' but instead "treated like animals." O'Donnell then argued terrorists are people too, and asserted the U.S. 'robs them of their humanity.' Re: the CIA: 'They've been treating them like animals … they have hoods over their heads, they torture them on a daily basis'. [The CIA does not run Gitmo] Suggesting the U.S. is looking for a scapegoat, O'Donnell said of Mohammed, 'for whatever he did or didn't do, he is not the be all, end all of terrorism in America. And our government has not found the answer in this one man.

Rosie On the U.S. Attorney firings:

Okay, Republican officials who supposedly called these judges that were fired and said, are you going to prosecute this Democratic, and they said, I can't talk about that because I'm actually a judge, and it's illegal. And they said "click," and they got fired."…That's mob tactics. That's Tony Soprano. We're going to lean on people. That's what the president's doing. That's scary.

Rosie On the British Sailors Held Hostage by Iran:

But interesting with the British sailors, there were 15 British sailors and Marines who apparently went into Iranian waters and they were seized by the Iranians. And I have one thing to say: Gulf of Tonkin, Google it. Okay."… "In a no bid contract for 5 years Halliburton -- wait a second -- 16 billion dollars. You want to know why we would go into Iran? For the money. That's why we would do it.

Rosie on Democracy and America:

Go outside of the country to find out what's going on in our own country because it's frightening.

I think Democracy is threatened in a way it hasn't been in 200 years and if America doesn't stand up we're in big trouble.

Rosie On the Bush Administration:

Nearly everyone in this administration is under indictment or suspicion. Nearly every person. From Karl Rove to Rumsfeld to Gonzalez. What do you have to do to be impeached in this country?

Rosie On Christianity:

Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America.

Rosie On the Media:

In America we are fed propaganda and if you want to know what is happening in the world go outside of the US media because it is owned by four corporations and one of them is this one.[ABC]

....she also hangs upside down to cope with depression.
