“I don’t know if Danny DeVito was drunk when he appeared on ‘The View’ [. . .] but I do know he was despicable.
“The reason he gave for his much-publicized rude and distasteful antics was that he had spent the night as part of George Clooney’s posse. He claimed that the ‘last seven limoncellos’ he had drunk with the sexiest man in the world were finally catching up with him. [. . .]
“Now that ‘The View’ has Rosie O’Donnell as head host, every Hollywood liberal who goes on the show feels comfortable bashing the president for a laugh, a round of applause, and a guffaw from Rosie. Danny was just trying to be the most outrageous so far. [. . .] In his five minutes, Danny managed to insult the president with a Three Stooges routine [. . .] and crow, ‘What about that hat trick last week! [Defense Secretary Donald H.] Rumsfeld, the House, and the Senate!’ Rosie shouted ‘Ta-da!’ even before Danny did.”
