Rosie O'Donnell slams mistreatment of oddballs

According to this story in the International Herald Tribune, Rosie O'Donnell

"lashed out at the way contestants were treated by "three millionaires, one
probably intoxicated...If you keep serving people crap and telling them it's a
meal, they're eventually going to think it is a meal."


Reading down, we also find out that the American Idol judges, are, in fact, making fun of retards:

During the Seattle audition, the show aired a performance of "God Bless
America" by Jonathan Jayne, who was criticized by the judges. The New York Times later reported that Jayne had said he had appeared in Special Olympics, an event
for the mentally challenged.

The response from the A.I. team was, basically "we're not so cruel. And these freaks and losers know what they're getting into when they appear anyway." The one bright note in this story is the revelation that a new A.I. type talent show is in the works: "Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll."

Someone tell Misha Reedy to get her black audition outfit ready.

Wow. That's just wrong. I draw the line at being cruel to mentally and physically challenged people. The AI judges owe Jonathan Jayne an apology. I find it ironic they are looking for someone who can turn into a professional singer. Yet, these three buffoons are behaving unprofessionally. I feel guilty for even watching. Maybe there should be a write-in to Fox like there was re: the "not to be" O.J. book. The writing campaign worked...no book!

I think Rosie should just buy Jonathan and make it better.

Then she should buy Trump a better hairstylist. What IS that atrocity he calls hair???

No excuse for the 3 of them. They are acting like grade school children picking on the kids they think are not up to their standards...they should take a look in the mirror, they aren't so hot themselves. Funny what money does to some people. Someone ought to glue Paula's chair so it can't move, take away her idiot pills and strap electrodes to Randy and Simon's nipples with me at the switch. When they make fun of someone I zap them. They continue to be nasty, they get more zaps! Problem fixed.

Oh please, PLEASE please please tell me the Pussycat Doll thing is a joke.

Dale said...

If they didn't make fun of the people though, it'd be pretty damned boring, no? The nipple thing could be fun, careful JM.

Jake's Mom said...

I agree a bit of making fun is...well fun. But not to out right laugh at those poor soles that really think they have something and then those 3 Miss Manner's rejects make fun of them while they're still in the room. Have a little class and wait until they're out of earshot. They should remember I was a nurse, need I say more??:):):):):)

Maybe you're right but probably not. :-)

Dale, Dale, Dale. NEVER piss off a nurse.

I work with nurses. They're all crazy. Except you two of course. And remember that weird looking guy in Cuckoo's Nest? His name was Dale. I'm fucked.
