Explanatory Note: I am on the road and working from a laptop. Fat fingers. Small keyboad. Short sentences.

Plenty of stories on the departure of Rosie. Good Riddance.

Big Picture: Virtually no meaningful impact on the View or outside the View. Notwithstanding, it will be nice to have Rosie off her bully platform for a few days.

One telling point: I contine to see stories like this one from ABC News (here), which merely alludes to a statement that Rosie made, "when O'Donnell commented on the number of Iraqi deaths and was accused of insinuating U.S. troops are the real terrorists in Iraq -- a claim she vehemently denies."

Obviously, ABC News has a vested interest in this--but come on.

For the record, here is the question Rosie asked and refuses to answer:

"I just want to say something. 655,000 Iraqi civilians are dead. Who are the terrorists?"

Deal with it.
