Foreign Policy Expert Roseanne Blames Every Injustice on the Right-Wing Military

Roseanne Follows Up On Her Wildly Successful Movie Career w/Savvy Political Commentary

Type: Celebrity C.H.U.D.
CHUDitude: 7
Location of Outbreak: Roseanne's Wacky Blog (h/t The Sniper)
Description of Attack: Members of the cinematic industry are traditionally liberal, and deviating from that paradigm, as Jon Voight did and Angelina Jolie might, can subject accomplished actors to horrendous criticism from washed-up losers like Roseanne Barr. Roseanne offers her intelligent insight on the current Hollywood political climate by associating the refugees that Brangelina try to help with victims of a right-wing military conspiracy. In her fit of rage, she spews out a grammatically incorrect C.H.U.D. attack in order to bolster her confusing point:

Aren't you supposed to be somewhat enlightened, or do you not know that the african daughter you hold in every picture had parents who suffered and died because of the republican party's worldwide economic assault on africa over the last few decades since reagan? whaaaa...??????!!!! (for that matter, the thai and cambodian sons you are photo'd with weekly too who's pictures you sell to raise money to help the poor? Their families are victims of America's right wing military incursions too.)

For the record, the U.S. military has long held good relations with Thailand, and even assisted in providing humanitarian assistance during the devastating tsunami in late 2004. As for Cambodia, much of their suffering was due to the brutality of the Khmer Rouge regime under Pol Pot, generally viewed as a "left-wing" military incursion. Of course, Roseanne probably isn't interested in these facts, just as she isn't interested in properly capitalizing the beginning of sentences.

Prognosis: Presumably, Roseanne seems to be attempting to bolster support for presumptive Democratic nominee, Senator Obama, with her post. But she is doing a bit of disservice to him, as she references him as having a "bone through his nose" and once quipped on the Huffington Post about his "jew problem". This frighteningly bigoted world view means CHUD-like characteristics are just around the corner. Dirty Harry summarizes her motivation when he states: "What a sad, small, unfulfilled life she must lead to demean herself in such a way hoping to, just once more and for a fleeting moment, feel the comforting warmth in the spotlight of attention again. What a pitiable figure that she can’t be satisfied with the fame she had and the wealth she has." Or a more simple, yet appropriate observation is made by TSO with "Shaddap Dummy".

This is the same woman who grabbed her crotch and spit during her shreaking of the National Anthem. Nice.

Well, she's definitely taught me to stop killing babies... totally convincing.

well, Fox might want to consider asking the vegas hotel/promoter to drop her as a spokeperson (heard daily on Brian & the Judge)... or Fox s/ drop the advertiser...

this woman has not been funny for a very long time and her opinion is actually meaningless -- but her attacks on our military are completely without merit and show clearly her total lack of insight and intelligence. the more these people spew, the more their ignorance (and unfettered bias) shows.

I wanted to note for the record that I loved the show Roseanne. Mostly because of the acting of John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf.

But srsly? She's always been a screechy full-of-bullshit one-note half-assed standup commedienne. Same with Rosie O'Donnell.

I pity anyone who goes to any of these Hollywood types for political advice.

Yea, I liked Darlene quite a bit on that show, but whenever celebs dabble in politics and blogging, it's usually really tragic.
