Wherein Rosie O'Donnel Ousts Herself As An Utter Nutcase

I was watching a Youtube clip at work (which sadly, is no longer available - boo-WEEE-ooo! The Illuminati are at it again!) of the View, which I consider pretty much a train wreck of a show anyways (any show that'd let a mental midget like Sherri Shephard on isn't worth watching).

Anyways, about four minutes into the thing, Rosie O'Donnel's asked about whether she believes there was a conspiracy. She answers no, redefines the term, and begins blathering on about WTC building number 7, where she said:

“I do believe that it’s the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel. I do believe that it defies physics that World Trade Center tower 7—building 7, which collapsed in on itself—it is impossible for a building to fall the way it fell without explosives being involved. World Trade Center 7. World Trade [Center] 1 and 2 got hit by planes—7, miraculously, the first time in history, steel was melted by fire. It is physically impossible.”

This was no stand-up comedy routine - she meant every word of it.

First time in history? Any historians and/or metallurgists watching that clip must've been rolling on the floor. Hello? Iron age? What does she think, that all those blacksmiths forged steel from? How did they do it? Wave a magic freakin' wand?

Anyways, Popular Mechanics pretty much trounced this idiot here, saving me a ton of work.

Personal opinion: stick to stand-up, Rosie. You're better with fantasy than you are with reality.

Has Rosie not ever heard of steel mills?

So many stupid people, so little time. Rosie should meet up with Stoned Commander that I posted about at GifS. That would be an interesting conversation!

And I never did find Rosie's stand up very funny, either.

Apparently not. Or metallurgy, or seen buckets of red-hot metal being poured out (on the telly).
She was funny in the beginning, but w/the fame, she lost her wit. Or wits, if you prefer.
