She has become one of those love or hate figures in American society. It is kind of a sad thought. She is an entertainer who has clawed her way into a position in which she can pontificate about whatever strikes her fancy.
Now granted that describes quite a large number of people, but at the moment she is the one who has attracted my ire. She doesn’t deserve a long post so I’ll keep this relatively short about what annoys me.
There are people who are so angry with Bush that they will oppose anything he or his administration does. They engage in a “cut off my nose to spite my face” mentality that I find to be unacceptable. Listening to her defend Khalid Sheik Muhammad is revolting but she does it because she thinks that it will help her hurt Bush and company.
I am not a fan of Bush but I am practical and I understand that even when I disagree with our leaders it is better to help/hope than to demean and denigrate. I suppose that is part of it. I just find Rosie to be incredibly negative. She doesn’t come across as being particularly insightful or intelligent.
The ability to shout and talk over people is not indicative of anything positive. Unfortunately there are many who feel otherwise.
