Is Rosie Feud An “Assault on Reason”?

The tiff between Rosie O’Donnell and Elizabeth Hasselbeck — the first of many — has provided a lot of mileage for various news outlets, not the least of which is ABC itself.

It all started with a discussion about Al Gore, his new book, and why he isn’t running, and ended only when co-host Joy Behar demanded a commercial break.

It’s drama fit for the Internet — and perhaps proves the point of Gore’s book, “The Assault on Reason,” which is that there’s little room for public discourse anymore. You know there’s trouble when they go to split screens. In “The View”‘s favor, it sure beats Maury Povich’s paternity tests.

We’re hypocrites, then, for doing this, but here’s the L.A. Times play-by-play, and the full-video video posted on You Tube.
