"Rosie O’Donnell may speak as normal people speak - sometimes sweepingly, sometimes brilliantly, sometimes on shaky legs. She may embarrass the liberal cognoscenti. That does not destroy her moral perspective. She is a mother thinking of Iraq’s mothers, and that is a perfectly valid intellectual principle. O’Donnell said, “I believe every human life is equal.” Does anyone in this country but an American idealist believe such a thing?
All people are created equal, and it might take a loud lesbian to apply that truth to all nations, including those with indigenous rights to lands with oil."
