Rosie fans launch petition: Fire Elisabeth Hasselbeck; Update: 61% view Rosie unfavorably

Newsbusters is all over it. It’s not clear what the overarching reason is: the preamble laments Hasselbeck’s dangerously inaccurate war propaganda — ahem, ahem — but also makes a point of noting her penchant for committing the worst of sins in the “View” catechism, being a bad friend.

It’s worth following the link to the petition; some of the comments are, predictably, golden. My favorite thus far: “Views like Hasselbecks’ don’t belong in a tolerant and democratic nation like Islam.”

I guess what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Exit question: Isn’t it in fact time for Hasselbeck to abandon ship? That boat’s going down and a woman in her condition has better things to do than tread water.

Update: Hasselbeck 2, Truthers 0.

O’Donnell, an outspoken and well publicized Democrat, is viewed favorably by just 25% of Americans (including just 33% of Democrats). Sixty-one percent (61%) of all Americans hold an unfavorable view of the daytime TV diva…

Thirty-eight percent (38%) of adults express a favorable opinion of Hasselbeck, while just 27% hold an unfavorable view.
