Here’s my link to a woman’s blog today
: How could I have missed Rosie O’Donnell blogging?
Train wreck time.
Here’s her tagline for the endeavor: “*the unedited rantings of a fat 42 year old menopausal ex -talk show host * -married mother of four- read at your own risk – my spelling sux (add * ocd * adhd * lmnop * suv * dvd * y not me)”
Go to the about page (she’s one of the rare bloggers who actually fills it in). Favorite music: “joni mitchell – eminem – kanye west – robert downey jr”. What, no Boy George?
Go to her home-movies section and see her stitching together bathtub video of her 2-year-old daughter with bloody pictures of war wounded, exploiting her kid to make her point. It’s like Kathie Lee: The Dark Side.
And the posts are half-uncapitalized free-form unverse things:
…michael jackson in his pj’s made me cry
why has mario quit american idol?
the shick intuition razor is the best invention
since the tampon multi-pack
i went to sommerville this weekend – a suburb of boston
to raise money for the public elementary school
they need books – in a public school – in america
it does not make the news
stories of teachers buying chalk and paper
out of their un-imaginably small salary
students sharing desks – text books
here in america – democracy
we are force feeding this ideal
to the world via violence
with a cooperating corporate mass media
as nixons crimes pale to white
we impeached him
i am waiting for my 20 something
woodward and bernstein
to make their way to the surface
and claim their place in history
in todays world dan rather gets fired
for his attack on g’s character
his mistake – he thought the fax was real
out he goes – traitor
we live in dangerous times
when our childrens childrens
will ask us
“what was it like then – when democracy almost died”
and i will tell them of the heros
who were smart and brave enough
how they worked together
how they saved our country
What was it like then, when democracy almost died? Have you seen the blue fingers, Rosie? Have you seen Martyr’s Square? Have you caught the news from Palestine? Ukraine, maybe?
And some executive gave her a magazine to run? [via world o’ crap]
