Cleaning Their Hands Pt II

As Part II of cleaning up their act, Rosie O'Donnell is now overboard. Not immediately, but certainly before the elections. The payoff? A show of her own in 2009. Or other options. as the Associated Press noted.
Options discussed include another syndicated, celeb-focused show; a game show; a late-night network program; or a cable show, where her colorful language could be less inhibited.
Amidst boycott threats against Disney and ABC for comments she made about Sept. 11, O'Donnell was said to be weighing offers from bidders, including CBS television Television Distribution, to do another show of her own.

In other words, she's being rewarded for - going away.

What's amazing is that the MSM thinks that out of sight is out of mind. O'Donnell is still a loose cannon and Imus will likely get a satellite radio program. Neither is likely to go away anytime soon as they both represent the cultural elite attitude. The only problem is that the cultural elites want a much lower profile.

I couldn't agree more.

People... especially the media elite who "poo poo" away Rosie's comments.. are the same people who defended Kerry's assertion that the military is made up of stupid people who couldn't get into college.

It is brushed under the rug because they all agree with it. They just can't say they agree because we centerists are still the majority and we vote... and we buy movie tickets and watch TV.

If Rosie keeps running her mouth... whatever show she gets will go the way of Air America. There aren't enough of them to make a mainstream show of that sort into a smart investment. Advertisers will walk because customers will demand it.
