Well, it certainly was a banner day for the girls of ABC’s “The View.” First, they wondered if Sen. Tim Johnson’s sudden illness might have been part of a Republican conspiracy. Then, they showed tremendous disrespect for the current Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (video available here courtesy of our friend at Ms Underestimated).
As the discussion moved to presidential hopefuls for 2008, Fox News’s Dari Alexander mentioned Condoleezza Rice. Rosie O’Donnell replied:
No. I don’t enjoy her. I don’t…No. No. No….I’m not a fan of the Condi. I’m not. I’m just telling you right now I don’t enjoy the Condi. I don’t know. Stop writing, because I’m not gonna enjoy her. And I’m not gonna apologize. (Huge audience applause.)
Co-host Joy Behar then joined in:
We don't know whether she's under his thumb or not, though. We don't know, I don't know where she's really at. I can't tell.
Rosie responded: “I would love to have dinner with her alone one night and force her to drink at least two glasses of wine and then I’ll let you know if I like her.”
Behar followed: “But, you know what, she’s already drunk the Kool-Aid.”
Rosie quipped: “Well, that’s a scary thing.”
ABC executives must be so proud.
