Video: Rosie battles depression on “The View”

posted at 1:30 pm on March 9, 2007 by Allahpundit

I’m monitoring Fox; Trump hasn’t called in yet to goof on her about this, but it’s only a matter of time. She says she does it for 15 to 30 minutes a day, which sounds like an awfully long stretch to have blood rushing to your head. Isn’t that bound to cause damage? Dare I say, serious damage?


Gutfeld journeyed into the heart of darkness that is Rosie’s psyche on Wednesday’s “Big Story” to see if there’s some deep-seated explanation for why she dislikes Fox News. Verdict: Yes.

Rosie has an upside down view of the world she lives in.

I suffer from depression whenever I see a new Rosie article on Hot Air. I’ve been depressed a lot lately.

For the love of God and all that is Holy, give a guy some warning!!!!

So what’s in Rosie’s ass shakes down to her brain.

Is this the real meaning behind Sh!T for Brains?

Does seem like it has helped her any..

AP, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE???

(composing self, deep breaths, relax…..)

OK, now if we can only have Rosie train her feet to hold a microphone……..

Gutfield referred to Rosie’s inverted therapy as Rosie hanging upside down as a fat lesbian vampire bat.

Does that men Gutfield must now sign himself into Rehab and get therapy, including sensitivity brainwasing, er, I mean sensitivity training?

Yoa mind ain’t right, boy. What we have heeeyyaa is a failya to commyoonicate. We got ta git yoa mind right, boy.

William

William2006 on March 9, 2007 at 2:08 PM

Yeah, I know, I’m a softie and all, and I’m going to get blasted for this, but does Gutfield have to insult Rosie at every opportunity. Is that his schtick? Seriously, we can out point Rosie O’Donnel on the facts and not stoop to silly taunts and name calling. Rosie may be a bully, but Fox News and Gutfield sound like they are too.

Flame away, my asbestos long johns are in place…

Ennuipundit on March 9, 2007 at 2:14 PM

..lesbian bats….so do we think these bats make a choice to be lesbian or are they born lesbian.

I am sure there is some sort of Biblical reference that can be brought to bear on this. Anyone???

honora on March 9, 2007 at 2:24 PM

Fat lesbian ‘fruit’ bat would have been more appropriate but I’m still laughing real tears !

DoctorDentons on March 9, 2007 at 2:26 PM

Seeing a fat lesbian vampire bat cures depression. Never seeing a fat lesbian vampire bat again…. priceless

Hey fatty, you know what helps the flow of oxygen to my brain? exercise, and lots of it. seems a bit more natural than trying to become a bat.

P.S. I wonder how much guano is on the floor of her hanging room?

Rosie’s crotch that close to the center of my screen. And I just got lunch. You bastard.

lorien1973 on March 9, 2007 at 2:38 PM

I always wonder what caused her to have braindamaged viewpoints and now I have my answer. No yoga and definitely no hanging upside down for extended periods of time.

Know what I like about how Gutfield did this? He didn’t get all loud and obnoxious (like a certain GAY WOMAN). That was about the best deadpan I’ve seen in a while! Go get him, Gut!!

BigOrangeAxe on March 9, 2007 at 2:52 PM

Kid from Brooklyn on March 9, 2007 at 2:37 PM

Actually, I’m thankful for the fact that she wasn’t upside in that one, too.

pistolero on March 9, 2007 at 2:29 PM

She’s saving that for “sweeps week”…..

PinkyBigglesworth on March 9, 2007 at 2:56 PM

..lesbian bats….so do we think these bats make a choice to be lesbian or are they born lesbian.

Probably similar to the fruit flies that show homosexual tendencies after they are irradiated. I seem to remember a breathless local news story about that once.

When complaining about her weight, someone probably responded that she needed to get off her fat ass and get her blood flowing. This is her interpretation of that suggestion.

Some years ago, when I was working in corporate-land and had passed my 50th birthday (and how the hell did that happen!!)I had to include one of these lovely exams in my exec physical.

Well, more fun than a barrel of monkeys as you can well imagine. Here’s the weird part, the doctor asked me if I wanted pictures from the procedure. So I could hang the image of the inside of my intestines in my foyer???? Yikes!!!!

If “inversion therapy” actually does increase brain activity O’Donnell needs to spend not 30 minutes per day – but 8 hours per day with her head upside down. Maybe, just maybe, it will jar something loose, allow some fresh air in the hollow spaces in her head, or she will gain insight if she falls on that soft noodle of hers.

Good Grief. I’ll never, ever get that image out of my head.

Even that idiot Joy Baer is laughing at you Rosie.

BacaDog on March 9, 2007 at 4:56 PM

That blood-flow thing is crap I think. Technically the blood flow rate to your brain won’t change appreciably—although the blood pressure in your head will increase—an aneurism waiting to happen.

Exercise will increase the blood flow to your brain, though, as someone’s already pointed out.

jdpaz on March 9, 2007 at 4:57 PM

30 minutes a day to make her less depressed… my, the science the moonbats have embraced is just stunning. They can save the environment by buying carbon credits and now this. And they think we’re all stupid… hmmmmm!

Bob on March 9, 2007 at 5:09 PM

If she buys that load of crap then it stands to reason that she would buy all the liberal BS. I really think liberalism is a disease and she obviously has admitted mental health issues.

Thanks but no thanks, Rosie. I’ll not share my political views with a bloated retard.

x95b10 on March 9, 2007 at 5:26 PM

somebody needs to airlock that pig

unamused on March 9, 2007 at 5:36 PM

I can’t believe how insensitive the folks are on this forum to poor Rosie. Can she help it if she’s obese? Can she help it if she has chosen to be a sexual deviant? Can she help it because of her crass, rude behavior? Well yes, but that’s besides the point.

No doubt the depression came in when Donald Trump asked, Can you imagine having to kiss Rosie goodnight? As smart as she is that probably got her thinking, and she took it to the next step with the following question: Can you imagine waking up in the morning and realizing you are Rosie O’Donald? Now that’s a depressing thought.

Will Durant, an athiest, bless his little heart, said he was glad there was no afterlife because he couldn’t imagine living with himself for eternity. If Rosie really wants help with her depression she needs to go sit next to that ignorant young blond at the other side of the View table and ask her how does one become a Christian. With a new Life Rosie would actually start becoming attractive. Now, how cool would that be?

Texas Mike on March 9, 2007 at 6:04 PM

What the hell kind of space age straps could hold someone like her?
As I was pursuing my higher education, while being an executive….sorry wrong thread.

I will never look at her (Rosie) without thinking of a fat lesbian vampire bat . Priceless.

right2bright on March 9, 2007 at 6:39 PM

Flame away, my asbestos long johns are in place…

Ennuipundit on March 9, 2007 at 2:14 PM

Look pal, I already stuck my neck out here at HotAir in the ACS threads in the interests of decency. I argued in favor of self-restraint and self-discipline when it comes to spouting conservative rhetoric in front of a television camera.

Need I remind you that Rosie gets in front of a national television audience every single working day of our lives, and spouts the most foul, hateful, ignorant stuff ever witnessed by the public at large. Furthermore, when she does it, she has sole possession of the microphone by virtue of the fact that her big, fat oversized mouth and her 55-gallon barrel drum sized lung capacity is capable of shouting down everyone else around her. When it comes to Rosie, no matter how much abuse we send her way, it won’t be nearly enough — and furthermore, it matters enormously that we do it.

I freely admit that I may not be able to justify this attitude of mine on a moral basis, but there IS such a thing as therapy, ya’ know. And I am tellin’ you that I am in dire need of some Rosie offsets. So if it makes ya’ feel any better, just tell yourself that Rosie herself is nothing more than a big, fat decency offset.

CyberCipher on March 9, 2007 at 6:51 PM

So if it makes ya’ feel any better, just tell yourself that Rosie herself is nothing more than a big, fat decency offset.

Far be it from me to co-opt and mangle Jeff Goldstein’s fund-raising angle, but everytime Rosie gets applause, a puppy dies. I hope all those audience members are happy.

Rosie is a great advertisement for antidepressants. But what are the rest of us supposed to do? I feel great and I’ve spent the entire day right-side-up.

Joshua P. Allem on March 9, 2007 at 8:06 PM

Doesn’t this really show us just how gullible liberals are? I mean, if you paid good money to a doctor to help you with your depression and he told you to go stand on your head, would you do it? Would you make a second visit to this doctor?

At least we can be thankful that Rosie didn’t have any wardrobe failures.

Entelechy on March 10, 2007 at 1:38 AM

Thanks a heap, AP, show us Rosie’s inversion therapy for depression. Part of my own mental health regimen is “aversion therapy”, which means avoiding Rosie like the plague!

It’s ok, I’ll just re-read all of this week’s Patriot Post emails, that should be enough “Rosie offsets”.

Freelancer on March 10, 2007 at 4:52 AM

Assuming that this is true…..

Depression is a serious illness. It took decades before clinicians started treating it as the serious disease and in the interim, many people suffered unnecessarily.

Now, I despise Rosie as much as any of you. But with the disclosure that she’s suffering depression comes the understanding of why she acts out so much.

A friend of mine back in college (when the Dinosaurs roamed the earth, my kids tell me), repeatedly attempted suicide by slitting her wrists and taking sleeping pills. Those who cared about her, especially her husband, were ripped up because they could do nothing about it except, finally, commit her.

I have no idea if she’s taking medication or not. But, frankly, ABC ought to remove her from the View until she gets better.

As for Joy, nothing less than a lobotomy would help her.

georgej on March 10, 2007 at 5:02 AM

Thank God her shirt didn’t fall to her head! I would have gaged if I had seen her “man-boobies”!!

Booo on March 10, 2007 at 10:15 AM

Rosie takes antidepressants and uses yoga along with “inversion therapy” (she’s INVERTED alright) yet she is still depressed? So much for the value of “inversion therapy!”

On a positive note; her waistline is reduced by about two inches as all that blood rushes into her empty head.

RedinBlueCounty on March 10, 2007 at 12:38 PM
