Good for Rosie
Normally I would never weigh in on a celebrity spat. It's something that should be beneath everyone: brain-wasting fodder that crowds out real information. But, I happened to catch Donald Trump talking about Rosie O'Donnell on the news last night. He attacked her as all powerful straight males attack women that don't agree with them. He called her fat and he called her ugly. Good for her for taking on a bully. And don't buy the fairytale that Trump pulled himself up by the bootstraps to transform himself from a New York City street urchin into a real estate mogul. He was reared in a prep school and had a spot in his father's real estate business after his education (see the link above).
