The debate over Rosie O'Donnell continues.
While the liberal lesbian sits at home and fans either rally to her defense or enemies bid her good riddance, one group of passionate followers are calling for the firing of Rosie's former co-host, Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
An online petition that currently has over 14,000 signatures on it is urging The View to let the show's lone conservative voice go. People seem more fired up over this incident than they are over the elimination of Melinda Doolittle on American Idol.
And that's fine. America allows people to express their views in any non-violent ways they see fit. But doesn't that include Hasselbeck? The following excerpt from the petition's website makes it seem like the originators simply want Elisabeth fired because they don't agree with her:
While the purpose of The View is for different views to be expressed, each co-host should be able to express their views without being attacked by a closed-minded co-host who blindly refuses to listen to facts and uses the show to angrily spout propaganda.
So, based on this text, Hasselbeck cannot have an opinion because she doesn't listen to facts? Look, The Hollywood Gossip doesn't buy most of what Elisabeth is saying, but we'll blog to our deaths her right to say it at least. That's what makes America the best country in the world!
Now go exercise your right to laugh at photos of Lindsay Lohan passed out drunk.
