Talk about cat fights… here’s the infamous clip from The View, where Rosie O’Donnell and Elizabeth Hasselbeck really duke it out. The question is: what the hell are they arguing about?
It seems to be a political debate, but both of them take it to a personal level almost immediately.
Rosie claims Elizabeth never defended her views from a previous show, Elizabeth tells her she should stand up for herself instead of expecting her to defend her, but what’s the real issue at stake?
Supporting the troops in Iraq? Whether or not we believe the facts? What the heck ARE the facts?
If you want to see two women yelling at each other, with two more women stuck in the middle begging the directors to go to commercial, check out this clip. Some call it “great television.”
I’d call it sad, both because these women can’t seem to have a political discussion without making it into a personal attack (remember kids: the personal may always be political, but not vice-versa!), but also because Rosie seems so worried about what people say about her that she’s become a stereotype: the angry lesbian.
Rosie, just let it go. Elizabeth, quit defending the status quo!
