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

in comparison

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

from itself

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]
