It's a Shame

ABC and Disney endorsed Rosie O'Donnell has left The View. A heartbreaker I know, but true nonetheless. No more calling American troops the arm of a terrorist state, 911 truther rants, or claims that steel is not known to melt.

After an altercation with Elisabeth Hasselbeck on set, in which Hasselbeck had the temerity to challenge the nonsense that regularily spews from Rosie's maw, Rosie walked out on the show.

In true leftie form, she couldn't do so without a couple of final acts of inspired civil disobedience:

...Rosie's chief writer, Janette Barber, was allegedly escorted from the building after she was caught drawing moustaches on photographs of Hasselbeck that hang in the "View" studios.

The Post's Adam Buckman reports ABC confirmed in a statement only that "photographs at 'The View's' offices were defaced. Rosie O'Donnell was not in the building. ABC Legal and Human Resources are investigating the matter." Barber is an old friend of O'Donnell who worked with her years ago on "The Rosie O'Donnell Show."

There were also rumors O'Donnell was so angry after her argument with Hasselbeck that she trashed her dressing room, although ABC denied the tantrum.

When all is said and done, Rosie goes out a simple vandal. How fitting.
