Rosie O'Donnell needs to just shut her mouth and move on. In fact, she is actually helping the conservatives. When people who have loved ones in the military hear her describe them as "stupid" and "felons," they will turn on her and her views.
As I have stated in previous posts and on other blogs I have posted on, this is a classic example of the "Dancing Monkey Syndrome."
Rosie needs to stick to the entertainment world and entertain us like the "little monkey" she is. No one really cares about an enetrtainer's political opinions.
Remember she got her start as a VJ on MTV. That is the same network that brought us "Rock the Vote" and a young woman asking Slick Willie if he wore boxers or briefs.
Here is the clip from "The View" this morning. She is such a hack!!!
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 noticeably higher than the entire youth population." Of course, facts don’t matter to Rosie O’Donnell. After all, fire can’t melt steel.
Token non-liberal 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.
