Rosie O'Donnell Sneers 'This Republican Guy' Arnold Has No Right to the Kennedy Legacy

Brian Maloney at the Radio Equalizer blog reports that Rosie O’Donnell thinks cheating Arnold Schwarzenegger is somehow beneath the history of the Kennedy family – as if cheating were never allowed among the Kennedys?

Perhaps it should be said that Maria Shriver’s parents, Sargent Shriver and Eunice Kennedy Shriver, seemed to have a happy, long-lasting marriage of 56 years. But Rosie might want to be careful about boasting of a Kennedy "legacy" on this topic of womanizing:

ROSIE O'DONNELL: There is a legacy of the Shrivers in America, of the Kennedy/Shrivers, right?And it's not the Schwarzeneggers, and I always felt like, you know – He, this Republican guy, kinda snuck in and...

BOBBY PEARCE (staffer): She married beneath her.

O'DONNELL: ...I don’t know, I always felt that's not my place to say. But I always did feel that, and, I feel like, "You don’t have a right to that legacy"...

PEARCE: And he proved it.  

Over at the "Ask Ro" portion of O'Donnell's website, a fan ripped on Adam Carolla's mockery of Rosie over her feeling Osama bin Laden should have had a trial:

randi Writes:

I used 2 like Adam Carolla, but now I think he is an IDIOT after what he said about u. Does he not have the basic intelligence 2 comprehend that u simply asked a ? about some ppl's opinions?

Rosie replied: "i agree". Here's what Carolla said on his radio show:

I heard that Rosie O'Donnell thinks we treated Osama Bin Laden unfairly and should have given him a trial. Wow, Rosie, it must be nice to sit up high in your tower and look down at all the unevolved people. You're operating on such a higher emotional plane than the rest of us.

Look: Osama bin Laden is a mass murderer, and so we murdered him. We should dedicate an entire week to this celebration. And Rosie, I don't think you really believe what you said; you're just angry. I get that society has treated you poorly in the past, but give it a rest. That, or move to Cuba.
