Rosie O'Donnell: Radical Christianity is just as threatening as Radical Islam

Writing on the hysterical "News Busters" site, Scott Whitlock notes that Rosie O'Donnell didn't wait before "letting fly with her extreme liberalism" in her new gig on The View.

Perish.

In the video to the right O'Donnell notes that radical Christianity is as threatening as radical Islam -- eliciting ooohs and ahhhs of horror from the facial-ed faces of her co-hosts. One notes that radical Christians don't want to kill us.

Ahhh, so threatening is only what threatens us and our children. I see. And threatening to remake America into a Christian theocracy ain't no thang.

Elsewhere, according to Whitlock, O'Donnell responds to Bush's recent comment that "The safety of America depends on the outcome of the battle in the streets of Baghdad," with: "And I would say the outcome, really, of America really depends on the battle in the streets of New Orleans, that that city is still decimated and $303 billion have been spent fighting this war. If, literally, a third of that money was put into Katrina and facilitated with honest people who knew how to do it, we wouldn't be in the situation we're in."

Ouch.

Whitlock responds in the way the bankrupt always do: with a snide comment about the $110 billion "designated" for Katrina relief: "O’Donnell may be unaware of this, but $110 billion has been designated for the Gulf Coast clean-up. My math could be wrong, but I believe that’s at least a third."

A.) I'd like to see Whitlock's face as he survives 13 months without a house on "designated" funds B.) The relief has been so mismanaged that even the money going there isn't being put to good use (due to failed core administration belief in the "free market") and C.) The point is: this government is such a failure, it can't even keep its own citizens safe and warm. (NewsBusters)
