Okay, she didn't mean it seriously, but at the end of CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight Thursday, substitute host Rosie O'Donnell pondered recording a country album with Rush Limbaugh.
"Then we'll hit the road to promote it, the Rush and Rosie Show. Giddy up" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
ROSIE O'DONNELL: Well, this is the time in the program that Piers gives us his take on life in the U.S. It's called Only in America. And tonight, I found a story that will make my British buddy proud.
For Only in America can an iconic rock band take the concept of merchandising to a whole new level. I'm talking about Kiss. Yes, the platform shoes, the makeup, the whole tongue thing. Remember them?
They've been glamming it up since the 1970s. For Kiss, it's always been about the music, man. OK, so maybe now it's about the money, too, man.
How else can you explain today's grand opening in Vegas of the Kiss Monster Mini-Golf Course. This is no ordinary miniature golf course. It's a glow in the dark golf course.
It has the largest Kiss gift shop in the world.
Now, I am not calling them sellouts. I am not. But what's next? Batting cages with Kiss glitter balls? I guess what they're trying to tell us it's OK to do anything for money here in America. And you never know. Maybe I'll take that to heart and I'll reconsider some of those offers I got last week to sell Rosie O'Donnell's Kosher for Passover Brand Matzo Ball Soup.
Or better yet, maybe I'll record a country album with Rush Limbaugh. Then we'll hit the road to promote it, the Rush and Rosie Show. Giddy up.
Rosie darling, don't flatter yourself.
Having just been dumped by Oprah, it wouldn't be you selling out to partner up with the most popular talk radio host in the country.
