Don Feder and Rosie O'Donnell

Ken Berwitz


No, they are not seeing each other.


I mention Don Feder and Rosie O'Donnell together because Feder ripped O'Donnell a new anal aperture in his latest column (which, at quick glance, would probably have considerable processing benefit for her).


Mr. Feder was reacting to Ms. O'Donnell's transcendentally idiotic comment on "The View",  that "...radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America where we have separation of church and state."


If you can't understand what's wrong with this statement you are beyond hope, plain and simple.  For those of you who can (and I hope for your sake that you happen to be one of them), here is an excerpt of Feder's reaction (the entire column is at


Let's see if I've got this straight:


Militant Muslims behead prisoners. Radical Christians oppose embryonic stem-cell research.


Militant Muslims blow themselves up in crowded shopping malls, slaughtering women and children. Radical Christians defend traditional marriage.


Militant Muslims fly planes into buildings, Radical Christians work to protect the sanctity of human life.


Militant Muslims threaten to kill those whom they believe have insulted their precious Prophet. Radical Christians threaten to launch consumer boycotts.


Militant Muslims issue fatwas. Radical Christians distribute voter guides.


Yep, I can see the similarities all right. The two are as alike as peas in a pod. No wonder Jerry Falwell is so often mistaken for Sheik Nasrallah.



What an ignoranus***.  


Rosie O'Donnell is one of these pampered star types who have decided that success in show business somehow makes her an expert on everything else.  In this regard she is very much like Barbra Streisand (plus100 lbs and minus the ability to sing).


Of course her success level in recent years is hardly what it used to be.  O'Donnell's career has plummeted, to no small extent because she became what I would call a Professional Lesbian.


To understand this, let's compare Rosie O'Donnell to Ellen DeGeneres.  Years ago, both were enormously successful entertainers who were lesbians.  Everyone KNEW  they were lesbians and no one gave a damn about it.  Then both of them jumped off a cliff by making their sexual orientation the focal point of how they entertained general audiences.  Ellen's TV series went belly-up quickly thereafter and Rosie's talk show lost about half its audience in a matter of months.


DeGeneres, to her credit, learned from this experience.  She went back to what she had been in the first place - a wonderfully gifted, personable entertainer who happened to be a lesbian.  Audiences came right back and she is going gangbusters today.


O'Donnell learned nothing from her self-inflicted debacle.  She parlayed the demise of her talk show with a singularly unsuccessful Broadway play about, of all people, Boy George.  It flopped big-time and cost her, if you believe the news reports, upwards of ten million dollars.


A Broadway show about BOY GEORGE?  Does anyone even know who he is anymore?  Boy George is about as salable as a cherrystone clam after two weeks at room temperature. However he is an overt, flamboyant homosexual which, I imagine, is what attracted a Professional Lesbian like O'Donnell to the idea of trying to celebrate his life on the great white way.  NOW has she learned?  I'm betting the answer is still no.


But in the entertainment business, if you're far enough to the left (lesbian or otherwise), there is always a place for you.  So "The View", having disgorged itself of Star Jones, evidently decided they needed a replacement of the same type; i.e. a big mouth with a dormant brain.  And now they have it.  I hope they're happy with her. 


If you are a Republican, you should go to bed every night praying that Rosie O'Donnell just keeps talking.  Maybe she can go tour the country campaigning for Democrats with howlin' Howard Dean.  Ms. Dean would certainly not have anything to worry about if they travel together.  But I don't think you could say the same for the Democratic candidates they'd be "helping".


***That's not a misspelling;  an ignoranus is someone who doesn't know what he/she is talking about AND is an asshole to boot.
