A View to a Shrill

Now is the time at Ed Driscoll.com when we juxtapose!

Barnes & Noble listing for Is It Just Me?, the recently released book by Whoopi Goldberg:

Have you noticed that things aren’ t as civil as they once were? Or that rudeness is no longer an exception but a lifestyle? Sure you have. All you need to do is set foot outside your door to see that bad manners are taking over everywhere. People are yakking on cell phones in restaurants, even at church. Folks in carpools wear enough cologne to make our eyes bleed. Complete strangers think it’ s OK to rub a pregnant lady’ s belly. Passengers abuse flight attendants, family outings to the ball park are ruined by rowdy drunks . . . a congressman heckled the President of the United States.Well, Whoopi Goldberg has noticed all this and more and asked herself, “ Is it just me?” Unleashing her trademark irreverence and humor, her new book of observations takes a funny and excruciatingly honest look at how a loss of civility is messing with the quality of life for all of us.

Jim Treacher, yesterday:  Bill O’Reilly drops by The View and ‘Shrieking harridans Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar walk off set.’

What’s the over/under on Whoopi’s book on civility hitting the remainder bins before Christmas?
