Also yesterday was Kat's "Kat's Korner: Bonnie's got another classic" excellent review of the new Bonnie Raitt album.
And speaking of excellent: Thank you to everyone who wrote me or wrote Third. I'm going to ignore that woman -- or try. I appreciate the outpouring in the e-mails. Thank you.
Now . . .
I grew up watching Roseanne Barr's show. I was a big fan. I read her books. She had two when I was in school. One about her beginnings. Another about reclaimed memories of sexual abuse.
She made me laugh and I'm really eager to see her new show if NBC airs it.
But I'm really disappointed in her. "Toned ass"? Does Roseanne like it when she's called a "fat ass"? If she wants to disagree with Ann Romney, why is she unable to do so in a mature way?
And I might look the other way if it was actually funny. But it isn't.
I didn't feel sorry for Romney. I felt sorry for Roseanne. She seems really sad attacking someone's wife. She seems really sad.
And very far, far from the Roseanne on TV who would give another woman the benefit of the doubt before attacking. I'm not surprised Roseanne doesn't care for Mitt Romney's politics. I don't either. I won't be voting for him. But it's really sad that Roseanne seems to think Ann Romney makes a good punching bag. Is Roseanne scared to go up against Romney? I don't know. I just know Ann Romney's only in the public spotlight because her husband wants to be president. Seems like mature people could find other things to talk about.
