I’m not a zealot, no really, I’m not!

April 27, 2007

Yesterday I read Patch’s blog and got a bit of a slap upside the head. Let me step back a bit and say that I got a phone call and two emails about Rosie being fired. That compiled with Patch’s 21 commandments made me realize that people must think I’m some kind of zealot. Which honestly, about 1 issue I am, but on the broad spectrum I’m not. I think we all have that issue that hits so close to home for 1 reason or another that we refuse to compromise, but for the most part I’m willing to at least see the other side, even if I don’t agree with it.

I stil hate Rosie and am SO glad she’s gone. They said the ratings went up 16% while she was on the show, but I would rather watch another year of Star planning her wedding then suffer through one more day of Rosie. She’s rude, loud, & obnoxious. I think ratings only went up because people like watching the train wreck. Seriously (this is a stereotype) the women who are at home to watch the view aren’t really Rosie’s bag, if you get my drift. I guess I’ve just become gun shy because after the ’04 election you can’t turn on the tv without some celeb spouting off their opinion, and I’m sick of it! I have younge kids who shouldn’t hear half of the stuff they have to say, but in flipping through the channels you get bombarded. And they act like anyone who dosen’t agree with them must be some uninformed, hillbilly, idiot. So let me just say I’m not an idiot, a hillbilly, or uninformed, I just wholeheartedly disagree.

    Ami, please believe me when I say the bit about attacks on the first amendment weren’t aimed at you. This is an idea I’ve been thinking about ever since the Imus story broke and Sean Hannity & others started obscuring the issue. The language I used found it’s form in our conversations, but I promise you, I wasn’t taking you to task in my column. And I certainly don’t think you’re a zealot!

    I know, I just think it makes for a fun banter. My skin is much thicker than you can imagine, thanks to micah. No harm, no foul, just keep it coming.

    In that case you’re a right wing zealot and I’m scared you’re going to have me shipped off to a re-education camp!
