The Donald Versus The Rosie

I notice in the news blabbery that the ineffable Rosie O'Donnell is unhappy with the tolerance shown by the ineffable Donald Trump toward the extracurricular activities of the fair Mizz USA, a young lady who knows how to have fun, and so the ineffable Donald in turn is unhappy with the deep musings of the ineffable Rosie, and is threatening to sue her. For something. Or something like that. Anyway, this tempest in a p***pot reminds me of The Great Harry Truman's reaction in June 1941 at the outset of Barbarossa (the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union): "If the Germans are winning we should help the Russians, and if the Russians are winning we should help the Germans." Truer words were never spoken.

Please, God, let us hear no more about Donald Trump and Rosie O'Donnell. They are such terrible people in such a small way that they distract us from those people who are terrible in a big way. Send their names and faces into oblivion, Lord, and keep all their musings off television and out of the press, for they are naught but unpleasant creatures who lack both taste and charity. Amen.

Bob, I can certainly sympathize with you. However, in an age when being entertained is the be all and end all, The Donald is nothing if not entertaining. Sort of like the car crash on the highway you swear you won't turn your head to look at, but lo and behold you just can't help it!
