What two words come to mind when you think of Speaker Nancy Pelosi? If you said "phenomenal" and "beautiful," you will probably be a fan of Martha Stewart's new talk show. That's how Stewart described the speaker, who she told reporters she'd like to have as her first guest.
The comments indicate that Stewart's new show will be yet another addition to daytime TV's liberal talk lineup.
"She's a phenomenal woman - look at what she's done," Stewart said on a conference call, referring to Pelosi. "And she's absolutely beautiful."
Stewart went on to state, "I'm an American. I'm involved as much as anyone in the political fabric of the country." That may be true, but her Pelosi statement suggests she doesn't share the general sentiments of the nation (hardly surprising, given she's worth almost a billion dollars) - only 11 percent of the nation has a favorable view of the Speaker.
Martha Stewart on Wednesday said former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is "a dangerous person" and "anyone like that in government is a real problem."
Speaking with HLN's "Showbiz Tonight" producer Jenny D'Attoma, Stewart also said Palin is "very boring" and "confused."
Ironically, when asked if she has seen any of Palin's recent interviews, Stewart replied without recognizing the hypocrisy, "I wouldn't watch her if you paid me" (video embedded below the fold with transcript, h/t Mediaite):
Rosie O’Donnell, who once said it is "physically impossible" for fire to melt steel, shockingly revealed she did not make it through college. Promoting her new book "Crafty U" on the April 8 edition of "Martha," Rosie admitted she was not able to get through a real university. Rosie also recounted bitter memories from "The View."
Fawning over Martha Stewart’s intellect, Rosie implied she does not match up as she confessed to dropping out of Boston University with a 1.62 grade point average. She claimed she was too busy working at the local comedy club to focus on her classes. [Audio available here.]
Later in the same segment, Rosie discussed her experience on "The View" noting "it’s hard for me when I’m not the boss." This is stating the obvious for the viewers that witness her bully another co-host and nearly mistakenly referred to "The View" as "The Rosie O’Donnell Show." Rosie added "there was a little Republican who scared me," referring to Elisabeth Hasselbeck who stood up to Rosie in the end.
"Do as I say not as I do," says Rosie O’Donnell. One week she raises the global warming alarm, the next she reportedly demands a carbon burning clause in her contract. First, on appearing on Martha Stewart’s Halloween show on October 31 of course, Rosie the climatologist explained why she "knows" global warming is such a big problem.

MARTHA STEWART: I think global warming is a real problem.
