Get PJ Media on your Apple

Back in the mid-’70s, after they shared a symposium together, Tom Wolfe quoted German intellectual Günter Grass in his Purple Decades anthology:

“For the past hour I have my eyes fixed on the doors here,” he said. “You talk about fascism and police repression. In Germany when I was a student, they come through those doors long ago. Here they must be very slow.”

Grass was enjoying himself for the first time all evening. He was not simply saying, “You really don’t have so much to worry about.” He was indulging his sense of the absurd. He was saying: “You American intellectuals—you want so desperately to feel besieged and persecuted!”

But talk about sophistry — on the one hand, Rosie believes that the American government is bloodthirsty enough to kill 3000 people — and yet, like Oliver Stone and Michael Moore, doesn’t even wonder why she feels perfectly safe enough to openly espouse her theories on national TV and on Twitter.

In any case, immediately after 9/11, Rosie was singing a far different tune:

Talkshow host and ardent Democratic activist Rosie O’Donnell stunned Los Angeles radio listeners Thursday morning by declaring she’s changed her opinion of President Bush.

“I love him now!” O’Donnell told KRLA-AM’s Dennis Prager.

O’Donnell said she even got to Yankee Stadium an hour early for a World Series game so that she could videotape Bush!

‘I brought a videocamera and my six year old son and no security so that my son could see the president,” said O’Donnell.

“We left at 6 o’clock in order to do that. And since September 11, I have had nothing but accolades for the job he has done for this nation… I am in full support of the President.”

O’Donnell added: “Honey, I love him now! He is our President. We are at war.”

Many presidents enjoy an initial wartime rally-round-the-flag bounce in their poll numbers, and from LBJ to Obama, it’s normal for the far left to initially rally round a president and then quickly discard him for not living up to their platonic ideal. But talk about bipolar (and for a time, there was certainly talk that Rosie was just that): how does one go from “Honey, I love him now! He is our president. We are at war,” to: Hey, Bush killed 3,000 people, ya know. Oh, and give me a decaf vente latte with extra soy milk, to go.

Rosie is a very familiar type to people from the New York metropolitan area. A mouthy know-it-all who is actually clueless. Bobby Moynihan on SNL plays a character called Anthony Crispino, who is a good example of this. https://screen.yahoo.com/weekend-anthony-crispino-000000897.html.

That's all Rosie is.

Poor Rosie, no talent, no brains, no shape, no shame.
A total waste of a lot of space.

Fire doesn't melt steel? Steel is made from molten liquid poured out of buckets. How many times have we seen those pictures. Then it is hammered into shape. Carnegie's Floor Captain at his biggest steel mill, a hell on earth if ever there was one retired a wealthy man and was done, but Carnegie talked him into going back to work because he needed him. P.S. Sad end to the reluctant foreman was he was burned to death by molten steel that over-spilled its container. Rosie is a nitwit. Fire will melt steel. What in the hell is she talking about? (Hey, Rosie, the jet fuel did not melt the steel. It weakened it. Feel better now.)

Thanks, Ed, you must be proud.

Rosie makes policy?
Spends our money through inscrutable agencies?

SAYS NOTHING while reckless, criminal politicos wreck our system?
What is she, Republican? Oh yeah, they'll save us, anytime now.

Why do conservatives keep putting words in peoples mouths and reflexively defending scoundrels, as well?

Too often, the right sounds exactly like the left.
EXACTLY. Same social mechanism, the details are transient.

Yes, Muslims flew the planes. OK.
Why are you blurring other details?
No background story, just another random drive-by major attack?

A bunch of pissed off Muslims. What are you retarded?

Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction, and 9/11 is just one of those. The so-called "truthers" simply cannot handle the truth.

Similarly, Rosie O'Donnell is stranger than anything I would ever dream up yet there she is. What natural forces could possibly explain her?

The really unscientific answer to the 911 truthers is that other than the Manhattan Project that gave us the atomic bomb there have bee very few government run projects that involved so many different people from so many backgrounds and jobs that had right/left views of our government that could be pulled off without many leaks or defections from the plan. Especially when it has been so long and not one of the thousands of supposedly participants has stepped forward. I say BS!

1700 intel agencies with 1900 contractor companies, coordinating with hundreds of foreign institutions, and we have full flowcharts, org charts, and prospectuses of their budgets.

Transparency all over the place!
The fleeced paying the bills are really calling the shots, you betcha!
