Here is the full version of this morning's Rosie O'Donnell/Elisabeth Hasselbeck fight. (May 23, 2007)

Ms. Hasselbeck is nothing more than a right wing shill who cannot think for herself. She cannot help but "challenge" Ms. Behar's facts with her "opinions". Rosie O'Donnell jumps in and is spot on about everything she says, but is very emotional about it and this leads to the biggest fight I think I've ever seen on this show.

Rosie takes it personally because she truly believes (believed) that Elisabeth Hasselbeck was her friend, outside of their political differences. When Rosie pointed out, correctly, that the 600,000+ innocent people killed as a result of this war can be considered terrorism by the Muslim world, any sane, rational, person with more than two brain cells knew that she was not calling the troops terrorists.

But then Fox News and others did just that. And Elisabeth didn't defend her at all, which is why Rosie took it so personally. Instead, Elisabeth did what she always does, which is repeat what her masters at Fox News say, because she can't think for herself.

If your so called friend sides with people who are publicly attacking you and misrepresenting your words, you take it personally. That is human nature. Elisabeth Hasselbeck chose political groupthink over friendship. There was no reason she couldn't have simply given a "no" answer to the question. Instead, she chose to dodge and defend the people like Sean Hannity who lied about what Rosie actually said.

If I was Rosie, I would react in the same way.
