    Well I never really liked Rosy to start but this bimbo I wanted to slap. But typical UCLAer, AKA Lib in training believe that there is no possible way they could ever be racist. For the record I do not think she is a racist, just a airhead bimbo.

    The problem with Wallace’s rant is that she just vented in a bitchy way. No humor.

    Sarah Silverman says stuff like that (or sings, in this case) and gets away with it because she’s funny.

    It’s either ok or it’s not.

    SherryM is spot on. Just a plain airhead.

    Whether this sort of thing is okay or not, or whether there’s a double standard is not my focus here. I’m merely pointing out that humor can deflect outrage, even if it’s only funny to the sycophantic audience of The View.

    It doesn’t always work, as evinced by Gilbert Gottfried’s recent troubles. It seems to depend on the level of outrage vs. the quality of the humor. Wallace set herself up by coming off as a humorless, annoying bimbo.

    The internet can be an unforgiving place. You never know what will go viral, and the internet has a very long memory. There ought to be a service where one can send blog posts, videos, tweets, etc. for an assessment of the possible consequences. Until then, we have to do it ourselves.

    Just got up the nerve to watch Rosie. I definitely want to punch her more than the bimbo.

    So a jealous prog goes on a rant because Asians believe in the family unit.Wonder who paid for her implants? Is the library a place hookers hang out these days? Watching Rosie is about as comfortable as having a root canal without pain killer so I will pass on watching a sow rooting around the sty.

    #8 makes me laugh.

    As does “Even if you’re not Asian you shouldn’t be on your cell phone in the library.”

    But at least she wants to study in the library!

    Darwin postulated that an inherited change (mutation) can’t become a common trait or develop into a separate species unless its small breeding pool becomes somehow isolated from the main breeding population of a species. I think LA has become something like that for blond airheads. Their ancestors moved there in significant numbers after the war where they thrived, free of predation and the dangers inherent in the workaday population, and their numbers have been reinforced by immigration to grow large enough to reproduce 3-4 generations of that trait. They’ve become, to all intents and purposes, genetically isolated.
    Yep, we’re well on the way to seeing the evolution of the Eloi.
    (What? No, the high fraction of bleached-blond airheads does not support the inheritance of acquired characteristics postulate that Lamarck and … oh, wait.)

    Those danged Asians and their irritating families that help them become successful model citizens who contribute huge amounts to our national treasury!
