Rosie O’Donnell to Compete for Big Mouth Award with Chris Matthews

If Chris Matthews could be described as a less masculine Rosie O’Donnell, Rosie O’Donnell could probably be as a more masculine Chris Matthews. Or is that the other way around? Never mind. Either way it appears that Rosie O’Donnell is headed to MSNBC with her own talk show. You might remember MSNBC as the channel willing to pretty much give anyone a talk show. They gave one to Michael Savage. They gave one to that black guy who’s really crazy and hates gay people. If you’re remotely famous and loud, MSNBC will give you half an hour to spew your craziness. Of course no one will watch you but MSNBC will pay you in DVD sets of The Office and a chance to visit the set of Access Hollywood.

Anyway MSNBC will be giving Rosie O’Donnell a talk show where she will mesh perfectly with its core demographic of Keith Olbermann yelling crazy things about the President, Don Imus yelling crazy things about black people, Chris Mathews smirking and trying to do his Bill O’Reilly imitation while bulging out his squirrel cheeks and demonstrating how much he despises women. Basically MSNBC is cable TV’s circus, the channel that was naively formed back in the halcyon days of the internet when NBC foolishly thought that Microsoft had something to do with the internet and Microsoft foolishly thought that providing content was something that a company responsible for Microsoft Bob could actually do.

The show would likely focus on current events and would premiere in time for O’Donnell to offer her distinctive take on the upcoming presidential election.

Yes, but will she read her poetry? MSNBC has become the E! of politics, the only thing left is to do a version of Big Brother where Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann and Don Imus and Rosie O’Donnell all have to live in the same house together.
