According to the AP, Rosie O’Donnell posted an item on her blog Sunday saying that she has formally bowed out of the running to replace Bob Barker as host of "The Price is Right." If she has, I can’t find it, so here’s a link to the AP story.

I humbly submit, with due respect to Rosie, that she’s not right for the gig. Can you say "mellifluous" (I can’t but love the word anyway)– well, that’s what Bob Barker was. A total broadcasting pro whose voice never grated. Like I said, with all due respect to Rosie, Bob was someone you could stand to have in your house every weekday before noon. He was cool, never overheated, no matter how hard the contestants were jumping up and down on him….Come to think of it, given these job requirements, I wonder what Bob Schieiffer thinks of Plinko?
