Rush and Molloy of the Daily News in New York have written that Rosie O’Donnell stood up to begin a stand up set and started in with another sort of tired old reference to her melodramatic departure from The View by saying: "When I was fired by Barbara Walters". That whole thing is starting to sound a little like when that guy from “Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire” went around making reference to his failed TV marriage set up incessantly. It was sort of interesting at first but after a while it became tired. Although, something that is never tired is the idea of Barbara Walters having sex which is probably why Rosie then said that she and Walters used to be so close that Walters was the one who initially suggested O’Donnell use Astroglide. Mmmm, how calming.

This comes hot on the heels of another unnecessarily sexual report about Barbara Walters. The other day on The View Barbara Walters dragged out Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi and spent the first few moments drooling over her husband who was sitting in the front row, mentioning the idea of “doing” him. Video of that is here. Of course, we all had a little bit of a throw up in our mouths, swallowed and then sort of tried to put the sexualized image of Walters out of our heads forever.
Why is America sexualizing the dead and almost dead? Michael Lucas came out with photos of himself through his publicist saying that he had been found dead in his apartment and then said it was just promo for his upcoming porn film and now we’re more or less bombarded with sexualized images of Barbara Walters and she’s so old she may as well be dead. There’s altogether too much blurring of the line between sex and death. Snap out of it …er..America. Yes, that’ll do. [source]
